Life is always a series of ups and downs. Like the changing of the seasons, we too grow through life. Just as autumn releases the harvest and outworn, followed by a time of rest and hibernation; the arrival of spring holds new growth and opportunities. Such is the process of our lives. Positive or negative triggers help us to see where and when we are experiencing our own evolutionary growth process. In the same way, a lightning strike can open a new crevice in a tree, as a lost bird has also found shelter from the elements of the night. Whether joyous or painful, the situations life presents are exactly what we need, as they come to us in perfect timing.
I have written, spoken and taught about the process our ego and soul utilizes for our personal growth – moreover, it is the impetus, the fuel that evolves Creation. Borrowing the words Sages and Masters have used for eons, “All is in Divine Right Timing.” This phrase is difficult to accept when we feel as though we are drowning in pain. Yet, the other side of this pain opens a path toward the joyous elevation our bravery rewards.
During the experience of your life, the personal areas of intended growth are the hardest, because they test your limits like no other. This pushing and testing is meant to break you down; so you may be rebuilt. During each period of recovery, you evolve into a new self, through your acceptance to expand your wisdom, courage and capacity to love.
To transcend the ego self, is to earn your new set of Wings that lift you into an enhanced awareness of the true power you possess and what that means.
As life orchestrates the challenges you chose to grow through, unpleasant situations occur that make you question yourself and your worth. The path of discarding one’s deeper truths opens a journey that creates Shadows of self. These Shadows are distortions of your authentic truth. As painful as this path becomes, the rewards of transforming these Shadows are great. Hence, you may curse those who deceive you; but, if you were completely confident and steadfast in your true worth, you would not have fallen for the tricks of the ego world. These tricksters are helping you realize the areas of self that need healing.
While running away from your perceived Shadows, opportunities to resolve them also occur. These opportunities are disguised as hardships, desires, misunderstandings, even gifts. Creation orchestrates situations and their timing, triggering suppressed or unconscious internal wounds or blocks that halt your way forward. This process also helps uncover hidden gifts and talents that have lain dormant for far too long.
Many times, Creation also aligns positive or negative instances with the moons phases and other planetary alignments that affects our moods and enhances what triggers create. One of your most sacred truths is your unity with everything that exists. All is connected; everything works in your favor.
The quickest way to resolve the issues triggers unearth is to embrace them. When you change your perspective and rise above your reactive responses, you will transform them quickly. You see, it is actually your distorted view of self that you are embracing. Along your life’s experiences, you have distanced, separated from…you. While accepting the unhealed truths of the ego world above your internal truth, you became lost. Now, you are regaining your confidence, by going within and realizing your true brilliance.
By using gratitude and appreciation for the strength, understanding and growth your past provided, your Shadow transforms and reveals new gifts and aspects of self that have grown or were hidden within.
In your most absolute and Divine Truth, you are the essence of Creations Love and Light. This is the truth that sets you free. It is important for you to understand that everything perceived as negative, is the reality you chose to grow and rediscover who you really are. You have always had the Keys to those locked doors. You are here to remember who you truly are and claim your freedom…to just Be.
I am offering a statement to help you recommit to your own majesty, beauty, strength and true power….
“Dearest ego, thank you for providing me the path I needed to enhance my capacity to see my own Divinity – to rise above adversity, to love more and to grow my understanding, wisdom and compassion of things I could not while remaining in my Blissful existence.
Thank you for showing me where I have lost myself along this journey. I am grateful for this extraordinary journey and I am ready to fully Embrace my Whole and Divine Truth. I Am Love, I Am Light, I Am Creations Glory! I accept all of who I Am and chose to live my life accordingly.”
You are an incredible Blessing to the world – thank you for being here.
