I have an important message for you today. You’re not broken. All of us are whole because we are divine sacred beings. How can I say these things with confidence?
There was a period of my life where I suffered from severe depression. I didn’t want to get out of bed in the morning, and I wondered if life meant anything at all. I felt that it would never end.
During this time, my father passed away, I lost my favorite cat to a debilitating brain condition, and I couldn’t see my life improving any time soon. In fact, if someone had tried to convince me that I wasn’t broken, I wouldn’t have believed them.
However, I have chosen a more empowering perspective. I truly believe that this dark period of my life acted as a catalyst for remembering my own inherent divinity and beginning to return to our natural state of wholeness. I know that I am a work in progress, and that’s okay. I also know that I’m not broken, and I never was. However, I don’t want you to simply take my word for it. I want you to experience this truth for yourself. You deserve it!
Have you ever been in a situation which caused you to become frustrated? I’ve been there, too, and it is not fun at all!
There’s good news, though. Our frustration can be turned into something useful. In order to explain this concept, I will give you an example from my own life.When I started my business, I couldn’t help but notice that there are certain resources that aren’t accessible to those of us who are blind or visually impaired. I have two choices: I could complain and become frustrated, or I can turn my frustration into an opportunity to learn to be more flexible and find more accessible alternatives.
However, you do not need to be blind or own a business to turn your frustration into something positive and much more productive. For example, let’s say that you are sitting in traffic, and you are going to be late for an appointment. In fact, there is so much traffic that you have to take another route altogether if you want to make it at all. Doesn’t that just frustrate the pants off of you?
Now, let’s look at your situation from another perspective. You were so frustrated by the traffic that you chose another route. Now, you just learned a whole new route that could save you time and money in the future. Isn’t that more exciting than remaining frustrated?
For most of my life, I have been afraid to express my true emotions. I used to believe that negative emotions need to be swept under the rug and that letting go of the past meant suppressing painful emotions.
Often, when I became sad, I would only allow myself to cry in private most of the time because I did not want people to see me as a vulnerable person.I also believed that it was sinful to express anger, and spiritual people were not supposed to get upset or angry. I’ve learned that I’m not the only one. I have had clients apologize to me for expressing sadness or grief during their readings as if the universe would be terribly offended by expressions of human emotions.
However, if we don’t express our emotions but instead bottle them up, this can affect our physical and mental health. When we hide our true feelings, we are not acting from a place of integrity because we are not being honest with ourselves. Instead, it would be beneficial for us to deal with the situations or memories that brought up these emotions in the first place. Then, we can finally move on and be free. If, however, during the process of exploring your negative emotions becomes unbarable, it may be helpful to seek guidance and support from a qualified professional.
Many of us live and work in a chaotic environment. There are bills to pay, family obligations, and plenty of other activities to take up our time Often, we find ourselves jumping from thought to thought or activity to activity because we’re so afraid that we don’t have enough time.
However, we were all given the exact same 24 hours. What would happen if we were all completely present for just one of those hours? We’d probably be much more productive, happier, and more relaxed. One of the ways that we can become more present is to implement a spiritual practice. While we truly connect with Spirit, we can’t help but be completely present. Our thoughts begin to slow down, and problems and worries seem less significant. When the weather is cooperative, I like to combine walking with meditation. Besides increased productivity and inner peace, staying present allows us to receive messages through our intuition. These messages help us to make more soulful choices in our lives.
Also, staying present can help us to avoid anxiety because we are not focusing on the future and allowing our minds to come up with “what if” scenarios. Since we are not dwelling on the past, we are able to avoid feeling sadness, guilt, and shame. We may still feel these things from time to time, but we are better equipped to handle these emotions in the present moment. I hope that you have enjoyed this article.
