Daily Inspiration: February 24. Repeating ‘Negative’ Patterns
When we repeat what we perceive to be a “negative” or “painful” pattern, it is mainly because we have not yet recognized the gift that it is trying to offer us. If we have yet to realized the gift in any situation, then let us today stop, ask ourselves, and think about: “What/Where is the gift/lesson for me in this pattern?” As an expression of God’s Love, the universe is eternally generous and kind; it will offer us innumerable opportunities to end patterns we keep insisting on repeating, and it is within this awareness, where the gift of peace resides. Peace of mind and joy, being both expressions of Love, are symbols that you have placed you trust in an all loving God. When you fully trust in God’s plan for you, nothing that is happening out there in the world, or to you, can in truth take away your peace of mind and joy. Even when we seem to be repeating negative patterns, we would have no need to blame others or the outside world for this, we would simply look deep into the mirror, acknowledge that, because of free will, this is something that we have help create, and because we created it, we also have the power to end it. No matter how negative the pattern appears to be, when we place our full trust in God, we realize that this is happening for our good, to assist our growth, healing and awakening. Therefore, what separates you from your peace of mind and joy, while experiencing and repeating negative patterns in your life, is not the experience in and of itself, but a lack of understanding that everything in your life is serving a higher purpose. Those negative patters have in truth no power, they can always and only have the power that we give or surrender to them. Once we again shift our minds to trust in the sacred journey that we have co-created with God, we take responsibility for our part in our creation, trust that God being Love uses all for good, and then at peace, continue along with our head held high.
Imagine, supporting an illusion of yourself or others as real. How do you begin to get rid of the ego’s programming, its negative thinking patterns? It is mainly by physically experiencing such programming over and over again, that you get, that the ego’s lies are not true, and that you are worthy of experience peace and joy in areas of your life where you once did not think of such a possibility as possible. Imagine, for example unconsciously thinking that you are unworthy of a happy and healthy relationship. It is in such instances, where you bring into your life, and such partners volunteer, to manifest into physical form, your own thoughts, to develop a relationship where you are not feeling happy or healthy in. Such a relationship brings you the opportunities to see what your own thinking and choices are creating and bringing into your experience. Once you tire of the choices you are making, once you realize that “Yes, I am indeed worthy of a happy and healthy relationship,” it is then that you will stop choosing such partners, and it is then such partners will stop volunteering to assist you in remembering who you are not. Ultimately, what else but gratitude, would you offer and want to give those partners who helped you remember that you are indeed worthy of a happy and healthy relationship? What else but gratitude, would you offer those that have volunteered to come into your life, in order to help you learn how to love and respect yourself more? What else but gratitude, would you offer those that help show you how God can use every part of your life for good? As you fully understand this, even the false idea of “negative patterns” will begin to dissolve from your life, and as they do, greater peace of mind and joy result.
Today, let us remember and trust that even negative patterns repeat themselves for our own good, growth, healing and awakening. The way to let go of an illusionary thought process or pattern, whose misperception of it, is causing us to remain stuck to it, is by bringing truth or right-minded thinking into the equation. Being that God is Love and All, when we make the conscious choice to align with our true nature instead of our false perceptions, our illusionary mindset begins to dissolve. Yes, our false perceptions may seem hard to be let go, because we have invested so much time and energy on them, but once they are aligned side by side with truth, the choice, the way to true peace of mind and joy, will become clearer. Who in their right mind would choose to carry the heavy burdens of judgment over the freedom that forgiveness offers? Who would consciously desire to live in a confused and chaotic state instead of achieving peace and clarity through understanding? Who would not prefer to be living in a state of gratitude instead of condemnation? The way we are able to let go of a repeating pattern, is to do so with trust, forgiveness, understanding, and gratitude. Because everyone participating in that pattern is helping you, in his or her own ways, release you from that pattern; trust, forgiveness, understanding, gratitude, and any other of Love’s expressions, are the appropriate responses to them. If we refuse to offer these energies, we will remain stuck repeating patterns within the ego’s mindset. When stuck, the universe will send help, being an expression of God’s Love, will again send an endless line of volunteers that will come into our life in order to help us physically manifest, reenact, complete, and release that pattern in a way that helps us once again align with the Mind of God.
Today, when you catch yourself once again repeating a pattern that you do not want, do not put yourself or others down for once again falling into the ego’s dark ditch. Instead consider trying these five things: First, place your trust in God, recall that because God is Love and All, that every moment of your experience will be used for your good, growth, healing and awakening. Second, remember that to truly replace and let go of this negative illusionary pattern, that you must do so through Love’s tools such as with forgiveness and compassion, and not through judgment nor resentment. Third, forgiveness is an expression of Love, and so offer forgiveness not only to yourself, but also to all others involved in this pattern. Fourth, anytime the ego once again wants you to judge and be resentful, take this as a sign and signal that you again need to focus on and offer forgiveness to self and others. Fifth, offer gratitude, for gratitude is also an expression of Love, thank them for volunteering to be part of a process that is helping you awaken to who you truly are. The more you practice, consciously and wholeheartedly, aligning with and trusting the Love that is your true eternal essence, the sooner that negative patterns will begin dissolving from your life.
