More times than I can count I see people wanting to be ‘fixed’. They want what ever is their life challenge to be healed. I remember when I was younger wanting the same. I remember wishing that I wasn’t that sensitive and wanting to be ‘normal’ like everyone else. Like that was ever going to happen! Ha!
What people seem to miss when doing any kind of inner deep work is that its a journey. The inner work is not the western model of ‘fixing’ something.
As a soul you came here and agreed to certain challenging lessons. It didn’t say ‘hey! give me a dysfunctional family to be born into.’ But your soul knew that coming into this life you would be learning and discovering and it would be a life journey (however long that may be).
Every inner discovery is a deeper step on the journey. Every opening will lead you deeper and to see more than you did previously.
I know that my soul came purposely to be challenged but I also see the beauty in my journey. The depth of experience has increased ten fold, not because I have succeeded in anything…more that I have not given up, ever. I am tenacious and if I am still here I still have more to learn.
Feeling uncomfortable on the journey is an opportunity to be stretched from within. This is the time to meditate (however that feels right for you to do) clear the mind debri’s by writing what is churning within and then practice your tools. Nothing will be gained if you don’t take action.
Like in the Hobbit movie. It begins as an adventure and then challenges have to be overcome and fears confronted. You like the Hobbit have spirit kin (friends) within that can assist you, just like Frodo does, but ultimately its up to you to find the inner soul strength. Bilbo and Frodo were not big on confidence, yet they had good hearts, courage a sense of humour and great persistence when things were at their darkest.
If you want something to change you will need to take daily action. You will need to tether your camel. (In brief is from an old parable about a camel herder who was too tired to tether his camel and told Allah to take care of it for him. He awoke to it gone. The learning then was ‘ Tether your camel because your hands are the hands of Allah)
When you fully take responsibility for your own journey without blaming another then you will grow and gain insight, if however your don’t put the time into it, then you may be constantly spinning in confusion.
Will there be resistance to doing these practices, journeying within and taking responsibility for your souls journey in this life? Of course! Resistance is part of the journey of learning to trust in yourself and your choices. Thank the resistance (the protector from within and step forward)
Time: When you look at a season like Autumn, the leaves don’t let go all in one go, it happens gradually and in natures time. Letting go is a process and honestly if you let go all at once there is a chance that you could not cope with the shift and end up in massive out of body crisis….so please don’t be in such a hurry. Allow yourself to grow and learn by experience. Each step is hugely valuable along the journey of the soul.
Stay in the journey of the moment that you are in. Sit in it. Write down the things that feel out of balance in your life right now. There may be situations where you cannot change the outer circumstances, but you can change the inner responses. You can change how you respond or react to what is out of balance. That is in your control.
Clear any debri’s by using tools like recapitulation, cording, clearing projections and clearing your aura, Meditation for sensitives, inner house cleaning etc. Journey to your inner child , hang out, listen to him/her love them up for a time….
You are exactly where you are meant to be. You have not done anything wrong. This is your journey and you are where you need to be in your life to stretch and learn and find insight.
Wherever you go, your journey will go with you. If you don’t like where you are at and have the ability to change the outer circumstances, do that. If not, adapt and find ways to self nourish, debrief with someone you trust (not your partner or parent) and take each day as an opportunity to grow and be stretched.
When I was young, I thought it was all about the destination. Time and experience has shown me that the destination will take care of itself, the journey is right here and right now and its up to me how I engage with it.
Gratitude is something that enhances the journey, no matter how challenging. If you find it difficult to pick 5 things a day you are grateful for, its telling you that you need to journey within more and nourish.
We are all on a journey
You can see it as an arduous sentence or a challenging adventure.
Attitude is everything.
As Helen Keller said: Life is either a great adventure…or nothing.
When you see the inner life as an adventure and wounds as souls challenges to be balanced you are well on your way.
Life as a soul in an earthsuit is a journey that can make your life much richer, deeper and multidimensional.
