We all have dealt at some point in our lives with those uncomfortable situations where we don’t want to be again. Those where we’re inundated by doubts, we feel sad, dejected, angry, irritable, insecure; all absolutely all of us have been there. The answer we give to ourselfs many times and that the vast majority advises us is…stay busy, distract yourself, in that way demons don’t do their job and don’t collapse your energy on an infinite overthinking about it.
So, many times we run from these feelings/emotions, we center our energy into work, a hobby, whatever that keeps our minds occupied, that distract us from the moment, letting the time run, …and yes, we will reach a point where we feel that it doesn’t bother us any more. But the truth behind all this, is that NOTHING happen for nothing, all have a reason. It’s in that moment when we need to stop, and study ourselves, our reactions, our feelings, from where they come. We need to change the “WHY Universe, why me?”…for, “What is what the Universe wants me to learn from this?”.
We, our souls, made an agreement with God/Goddess/The Universe (any form that you want to give it), before come into this lifetime, accepting the lessons we came to learn. If you run, hide, you will escape for a while, but you should be sure that the Universe will bring back the same lesson again and again, maybe with other person, situation or something totally different from the first time, maybe with the same things, but in any way, it will come back. So, why not accelerate our processes, minimize the prolongation of the pain, and being PRESENT, FOCUSED, AWARE, AWAKE.
When life bring difficult challenges, don’t point outside to look the guilty, look inside, i am not saying you must think it is your fault, i’m saying we ALL have SOMETHING to learn with each situation, the bigger is the learning, the more difficult the situation will be. And look really inside, don’t stay with the things that looks “obvious”, in fact they are like a mirage, you have to go deep, leaving behind the surface, all the surface is in reality connected with deeper causes. Go there, go where you don’t show to nobody else, go there, to that place that you hide sometimes even from yourself.
Hard situations are an incredible opportunity to know the most important person in your world: you.
I see it in this way. We dig holes on the earth, put the feeling there, and then, put dirt over it, expecting to loose it, but is still there, you are only not facing it. What causes you the pain? The emotion (sadness, anger, confusion, frustration, etc.) Is nothing but the manifestation of something far beyond what we see at first glance, that is itself the object of study. I have learn the Universe will give you many chances, to do your work, everytime in more challenging ways, until a point where if you still are refusing it, will force you to take your class.
It has been given us an amazing time to explore ourself, astrologically speaking we are in a huge shift. Many of us have been connecting through the last years with many people from other times, other spaces, many soul connections are showing up, some deeper than others. But we can not take advantage of this if we don’t want to face it and work. Of course, i will NEVER say it is easy, the more awake you are, the harder it is, there are not free days on the rising. You will feel exhausted sometimes, you would like a break, It’s a tough work confront all this, however… i don’t know you, but i want to be better, and i know i am the only one who can do this for me, and i know the more i change my world, the Universe in me, i will do this whole system better.
