You will hear it so many times, said in so many different ways, once you start walking the Spiritual Path.
"Your pain is your gift. Your sensitivity isn't a curse it is a blessing. This is meant to help you, to show you where you need to heal, so you can go higher." Etc, etc, etc...
And as much as you want to Trust, to believe in the Universe, to know all things really and truly are meant for your Highest Good- sometimes you are left thinking- WHY DO I HAVE TO FEEL ALL OF THIS PAIN?
This is the human experience- what our Souls came here to do. It isn't for the weak, that's for sure. This is where it is important to remember one key transformational thing- you are SO STRONG. It may not always feel like that, not in the most difficult moments, but still, the truth remains. The most empowering thing you can do is begin to sit still, invite your pain to show you what lessons it has to you, and then allow yourself to heal it and move higher.
If you can understand you are fully equipped for your unique mission, if you can begin to understand that you did in fact choose to be here this lifetime, that your Soul has a purpose, you can begin to align with that path. It's not that all pain will instantly dissolve, or that you will not experience another painful experience ever. But you can begin to see the beautiful connection of all that you have experienced, and all that is to come. You can look at things beyond each moment, and understand it is all leading you on your magical journey. You can take back your power when you see you are not a victim of life or its circumstances, but rather a Soul warrior who holds the key to unlocking all of your heart's deepest desires.
The path unfolds on its own. You can go fast or you can go slow. You can take lifetimes of stubbornness, or instead, you can make a commitment- right this very moment. Are you going to change the way you think? Are you willing to let go of feeling "small," of letting your pain define you? And are you willing to see your painful experiences for opportunities to create something beautiful?
Think of great works of art- painting that move you, song that bring you to tears. Think of businesses and services that have been created to help ease the suffering of others. Think of open-hearted people, who freely give their compassion and Love to the world. YOU can become this person, and you can develop and grow something beautiful from the pain and lessons you have been given. Understand you are becoming more REAL. You are letting go of all of the false lessons you were fed by society, as you tune in with the big Truths, the capital T truths, the ones your Soul knows it can believe in.
Use your pain. Don't fear it. It will not defeat you. Breathe into it, and ask it to show you it's wisdom, and then kindly dismiss it on its way. Commit deeper to your Soul Mission. Let your Heart know it can be safe, no matter what happens, you are strong, and tough, and this is your chance to shine.
I am here to help you, if you should need it. We can work together through coaching, and uncover your blocks, and move forward on your path. I am excited for you in this time of great change.
Peace and Love,
