We come to this life–and if you believe in reincarnation or past lives, all our lives–with a contract, a chart, a purpose to our journey here. If you have chosen to believe this as true, then it must also be true that what comes into our lives is meant to, and can ultimately enhance our union with Spirit and one another as well as connect us more intimately to who we are.
Continuing on this premise then, every experience in our lives is “good.” At times we can easily concur, but in those moments even when what we are feeling or facing doesn’t feel so “good” anymore, the truth remains. As much as we can attract the more enjoyable aspects of living on this Earth into our lives, we also attract the less pleasant experiences to assist us in becoming more authentic. Taking time out to understand the attraction is a necessary tool in achieving this.
We each have a core belief system–attained in part by the energy we naturally carry as well as through our experiences and even the upbringing and tribal cultures we experienced as a child and continue to experience as adults. It can at times be difficult not to “take on” what is true for others–indeed the majority in some cases–around us. And even more complex is the reality of realizing we have beliefs buried within that have yet to make themselves clear to us–until the “bumps” of life catapult one of them directly to the forefront.
While it may not seem so, it’s so very beneficial to take time out of your confusion, pain or frustration to understand WHY you attracted this situation, person, feeling into your life. It’s equally as important to do this when the “good” enters our lives, however the times that life feels a bit more difficult somehow offer to us a wealth of insight if we allow it. It’s unnatural to want to go within during these times, but the spirit begs for us to do just that. While in the space of our innermost being, we can connect to what is true “behind the eyes.” Shifting into this very real perspective is moving into the process of transformation–spiritual alchemy.
Whatever it is in your life–ask yourself–why did I attract this particular situation here, now? What underlying belief is driving its presence? Do you not feel enough on your own? Are you missing your true joy? Is change too unbearable for you to move into something new in your life and so the old holds you in its clutches? Did you think this person, place, idea would make you something more than you are? Where have you lost sight of your dreams, hopes, desires and your true self? If you are able to pinpoint some of these answers, you will quickly realize the belief you’ve carried all this time, weaving itself so forcefully into your life, only to assist you in letting go of what is no longer true for you.
We can easily get caught up in the Rat Race when our goal is to live fully in the Heart. The pathway there is to be still….and to listen……to the whispers of your heart…..for you will hear your truth if you do…..
