Change can be incredibly painful and stressful. It can bring us down to our knees and make us cringe and cry and beg to be shown why certain difficulties are happening.
Sometimes it seems that these difficulties happen a lot, or are clustered together. This clustering can be Karmic Ripening – a time when many causes and reactions of your actions “cluster” and manifest into a “response from the universe”, for lack of better term.
It can also simply be a timeline marker on your particular Soul path, one that your Higher Self planned and knew about. (Wouldn’t it be great if it let us know in advance?!)
How you deal with major life changes determines the future
These times of storms are really tests. Tests of our gusto, marksmanship and strength.
You must still, in the tide of the overwhelm, get present enough to mark your target and move towards it. Even if you can’t see it.
This is a major growth opportunity.
What does this mean?
When you are floating and swallowing water HARD, sometimes all you can think is “I DO NOT LIKE THIS!”, yet you are there, having the experience so you can learn.
So what’s the lesson?
Often it’s: Surrender, Have Patience, Drop the Negativity, Embrace Uncertainty and VERY often, the lesson is to TRUST.
So that’s the marksmanship I speak of.
You WILL be thrown off center.
That’s why you’re here – to explore what that’s like.
You WILL feel like a failure.
That’s also part of it.
But WHO WILL YOU BE IN THE FACE OF IT?
That’s the question.
And the future is determined by how you perform in this particular iteration of difficulty.
It’s the not the first time, and it wont be the last!
So hunker down and get really present.
You got this.
