As a collective, we are going through some deeply challenging times. Our choice on how we handle such situations is entirely personal. Perspective is the key in really honing in to the golden opportunities that adversity bring and maximizing on these circumstances.
Everything (always) has the potential of being a blessing (even if it comes in a disguise). The blessing in a challeninging time, when we meet with obstacles and/or distractions, is that we can grow and expand in our consciousness.
Far too many times, we meet an obstacle or a challenge, and we either completely back off or we take a fighting stance. The infamous flight or freeze response; this is more of an involuntary reaction and not a response. When we are able to consciously choose a response, from stepping back and reflecting, we are coming from an expanded state in our consciousness because we become the objective observer and responder.
Everyone that we come into contact with is there for a reason. Frankly, they are there to reflect back to us what we are not (or have not yet become) aware of in order for us to further expand. These situations and encounters are always a catalystic mirror and an energetic vibratory match. When we elevate our awareness and take things in as an opportunity to reflect, then we “up-level” our consciousness.
Next time you are triggered by some “outside” circumstance, instead of having a knee-jerk emotional reaction, choose to respond after reflection. This means the following: stop, step back, see the other side through empathy, and then develop a compassionate and loving response. This is the true meaning of balance. Balance is a godly virtue because it’s neutral, yet anchored in the only divine truth: LOVE.
The serenity prayer works because it comes from a balanced loving graceful place. “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference.” (I personally know the transformational vibration of this prayer because it comes from a grounded receptive feminine energy of allowance through accepting the divinity within everything. Allowing for our Higher wisdom to take over, instead of reacting through a limited one-way perspective.)
When we react from a place of limited view, we stunt our growth and our unlimited potential. In fact, many times ego-based reactions have a counterclockwise motion because it succumbs to our fears. This is counterproductive because it leads us to feeling a sense of guilt after we have had the time to reflect. Guilt is very harmful for us because it disuades us from our divine truth of love; it prevents us from loving ourselves. Guilt destroys self-love and self-esteem. We may use our guilt to show us what we need to change within our behaviors and then letting it go. The healthy form of guilt is to use it for our reflection and nothing more.
⚛️🌀🔮 Remember that the most important relationship we have is that with our Self. In order to love someone else, we must first love ourself. Having a strong connection to our Soul is the key to Self-Mastery. Distractions show up as a way to test our own discipline within our authentic divine truth. The abundance that embodying balance brings is the reward in itself. Universal abundance is achieved by our Self-Mastery in this play.
Abundant Blessings, Love and Light in Truth,
