This magnificent gift we call Life, is part of a much larger construct that your senses could never possibly gauge. One of the first concepts one is taught as a Mystic is to understand that there is an extra element in our Universe not perceivable by any of our senses and just starting to be recognized by quantum physicists. This element surrounds and permeates everything and is a very dynamic part of the makeup of our Universe. Although it does respond to certain material laws it mostly responds to Divinity. It is the “All” that constructs the world that we appreciate as our reality.
Why is it important to know about this? Because, you are mostly soul and your physical life is a tool for your soul to evolve and perfect itself. Once this concept is accepted then it is easy to realize that certain things that we invest so much effort and attention to in our physical lives are nothing more than the means by which our soul evolves through. So, for example, if your soul needed to polish itself in “Patience”, regardless of your physical decisions, you would find yourself in a relationship or job or situation where the need for patience would be an issue. Without the above understanding, situations would constantly reappear in your life where you would find yourself confronted by obstacles trying to lead you to develop the character traits needed.
A Shaman or Psycho-Spiritual Counselor could quickly recognize this situation and advise what shifts would be needed, but you don’t need to see a shaman for every recurring situation that happens in your life. We are all born with our own guidance system, it is your heart. The very essence that drives your heart to beat every single second of your life is in direct flow with the life force that is a manifestation of the extra element I mentioned above. It is a manifestation of the Divinity within you, in other words your soul. Through your heart you have a direct connection to your soul. And your soul possesses the most powerful force that drives your life in this existence. When you start living with the primary purpose of perfecting your soul, at first things will seem very difficult because many things will change around you, things you thought you needed will leave you, tough choices will invariably show up, this will be a time of turbulence while you shift from a life of illusion to a life of Truth. Eventually, you will come out of the rough and enter into a state of harmony, an existence where your soul will whisper which areas need to be worked on and you will diligently take them on in the form of service. Obstacles don’t need to show up in your life anymore and force you into a behavior, because now, you are aware and you understand your purpose and you eagerly look for ways to perfect your inner essence through offering instead of expecting.
A few simple tips to get started:
– Whenever a challenging situations appears in your life, reflect on the character trait that would have avoided the situation to happen.
– If in doubt, there is no doubt, never go for something if you have doubts about it.
– Never make a big decision (ie. marry, divorce, quit, etc) when emotionally unstable or during a crisis
– No matter how hard your life is at the moment, practice loving someone or something (ie. family, friend, dog, rose, sunset, etc) daily
– Whatever you need (money, love, reassuring, hope, etc), try giving a little of it first, as often as you can and anonymously if possible.
– Place both your hands on your chest, breathe in deeply seven times saying to your inner self , “I Love you and Thank you”
May you be Blessed!
