This is a fact of life that is unavoidable.
Life has no favorites. Being born into the human experience is challenging.
Whether you are the Dalai Lama. Gandhi. Oprah. Mandela.
There’s a myth that if you do the right things, you pray, meditate, are a good person, follow all the rules, are spiritual and loving, this will exempt you from the challenges of life.
This is simply not the case.
We are souls having a human experience in order to learn and remember who we really are.
Life is a school for the evolution of your soul. The way you learn is through experiences. You often learn the most through the difficult ones.
Every experience and relationship is here to serve the evolution of your soul’s growth. Although it may not always seem that way at first.
Quite frankly when you are in the midst of a break up, financial crisis, betrayal, illness or your life falling apart, it’s difficult to see how it all makes sense.
Just because you don’t understand what’s going on in the moment doesn’t mean that there isn’t a bigger perfection at work.
So when you are in the midst of a difficult situation, rather than asking yourself, “Why is this happening to me?”, which keeps you locked into being powerless and a victim.
Get curious and ask, “What is my soul seeking to learn through this experience?”
And really listen.
If you remain open you will FEEL the answer.
When you truly understand that your soul is here to evolve, then you go beyond seeing things as good or bad.
Every experience is a huge growth opportunity.
So don’t pray for life to get easier, pray to expand your inner strength.
Sometimes the bigger your soul’s assignment on this planet, the more you will have to go through in order to accelerate your soul learnings.
When you are on the spiritual path and pray to be more spiritual, sometimes your difficult times are actually the Universe’s response to your soul’s request.
It’s nothing bad or that you did something wrong. It’s through these experiences that you are forced to grow and realize more of who you really are and put your spirituality into action.
If you are in the midst of a crisis, congratulations….. It simply means that you have outgrown the current level of your life and something more is seeking to be expressed through you.
When you are in it, know that you have what it takes to deal with it. And not only is it happening for a reason, it’s happening because your soul is ready to handle it.
Embrace the opportunity to grow and become more of who you really are.
Trust that you are ready.
