Daily Inspiration: August 9. Overcoming Challenging Chapters in our Lives
Every moment, when properly perceived, is a gift, that is in one way or another, offering you the opportunity, to raise your level of consciousness. If you are going through a challenging chapter in your life, it is because you have, unconscious as it may be, through your highest self, volunteered for it. You are here in part, to heal the misperceptions that you hold about yourself and others, and so, during your challenging times, when you go from a place judgment to a place of forgiveness, and from a place of pain to a place of peace, you will through your life experience, show others who are feeling hurt and hopeless, that there is indeed a way out of the darkness, and back into alignment with the light. There is something here for you to learn, and when you do, you will teach others what you have learned. This will become part of your life’s mission, and a reason why you have chosen this life experience. Your victory over your challenging chapters in your life, will lift many souls that, in the future, will be fighting, and needing guidance, in these same battles. It will be because of your life experience, and the wisdom that you accumulated from it, that you will be better able to serve and guide many lost souls, back to feeling found. And so you see, that exact same life experience that the ego once had you curse and judge yourself and others for, now becomes, when properly perceived, a great gift that you will offer humanity. Imagine, choosing to see every ‘difficult’ or ‘challenging’ time in your life, from now until your return Home, in this awaken manner. Aligned with this mindset, would your life not be experienced with a much greater sense of peace, purpose, gratitude, understanding and joy? Today, let us consciously, begin to shift our mindset about our challenges, and go from a place of self-judgment and judgment of others, to a place of peace, purpose and understanding.
How much of our life have we wasted away judging others and ourselves for experiencing challenging times? When we’ve been in challenging times, how much of it did we spend condemning ourselves or others for not doing the right thing, for not being wise enough not be in that situation, and for the sadness, struggle and pain, that it seem to create? Imagine, if you, starting today, during your challenging times, decided to recall that: “I have co-created my journey with the All-Loving Source. Therefore, I will now trust that every moment, no matter how negatively the ego has programmed me to perceive it, is a gift, that has a very sacred purpose and intent to it. Now I understand, that this moment and challenge, has been presented to me, so that I may start letting go of the illusions that I hold of myself and others, and return to my natural state, that of being a representative of Love on Earth. By doing so, I will achieve, the state of peace. We are all One, and so today, it is the peace, purpose and understanding, that I myself accept, and know that I am worthy of, that I will shared with all others.” Imagine, every single challenge in your life being viewed in this manner, as a gift that is helping us let go of our false programmed-self, and thus assisting us in once again aligning with our truest self, God and His plan. If you viewed your life in this manner, would you truly ever need to worry, stress out, judge yourself or others again? Today, let us make a conscious decision, that no matter how the situation presents itself, and no matter how the ego had taught us to see it, that we will instead chose to overlook the ego’s judgments, trust God, and see every challenge, as a personal gift, from God to us. God being Love, would never place us in situations that we could not succeed in. We will overcome our challenges, for God would never allow us to take on something that we could not learn from, heal from, and overcome.
Today, let us continue undoing the ego’s mindset. Undoing the ego’s programming will not be an easy battle to overcome, for no true challenge ever is. But rejoice, for once you consciously choose to work to overcome your challenges, you will become the hero of your own journey. As the hero of your journey, you will start to understand every challenge as the opportunity for growth and gift that it is. It will be this shift in perception, that will solidify your journey from victim to hero, from buying into the ego’s unconscious mindset that says that, because of your challenge, you and others are cursed, less than, and deserving of judgment and condemnation, to one where you, as a courageous volunteer and co-creator, learn from, heal, and then teach others this knowledge, healing and awakening process. It is you who in the end, hold the power of how you choose to view, experience and participate in your life, and in the life of others. You are not curse or weak. Your challenges, will in time, be perfectly understood, and accepted as just another sacred part of the journey that you have co-created with God. There is no more need for you to invest your time, focus and energy, on the ego’s illusionary mindset, nor on judging yourself or others as not worthy of having a peaceful, purposeful and joyful life. The understanding of this peaceful, purposeful and joyful life, is always, thanks to free will, just a simple shift in perception away. Today, be the hero of your own journey, by choosing to value and appreciate, every single moment and challenge, as a sacred step along your perfect path.
Today, let us practice letting go of our feelings of uncertainties, anxieties and worries, in regard to our challenges. Let us do so, by increasing our trust in God. As our trust in God increases, our levels of uncertainty, anxiety and worry, decrease. If we choose to fully trust God, then our uncertainties, anxieties and worries, will dissolve before our light and understanding. God is Love and All, and thus can and does use all, every step along your path, every interaction you have ever had, and every challenge that has ever been presented to you, for good, to help you grow, heal and awaken. There is not one gift from God that He gives you, that He withholds from others. Equally so, there is not one gift God gives to others, that He withholds from you. All the Love that He has for you, He has for others, and all the Love He has for others, He has for you. You need truly know nothing else. He is always by your side, with and within you, and not because you call upon Him during challenging times, but because He has never left you, and never will. You are God’s child, forever held safely in His arms, do not despair, do not cower or wither away, you are the son or daughter of the Most High, there is nothing that will ever be presented to you, that you can not overcome and conquer.
