Whatever is in your heart, do it. Whatever obstacle holds you back, overcome it. Whoever stands in your way, defy them. Your mission on this evolving planet is too important at this point to let anything prevent it.
Life will seem to throw endless impossible obstacles in your way. But you must keep moving.
Whatever remnants of your ego you need to sacrifice to become whole, let them go and watch as they fly freely. If they return, it’s because they have more to teach you. Be open to their lessons, not dismayed at their return.
As strange as it might sound, your ego can teach you as much as your intuition. Whether you learn from either of them depends on if you’re open to their lessons.
Whatever trials or tribulations you encounter, let them make you stronger. If you let them defeat you, you won’t have the opportunity to do all this again for a long time. This unique opportunity to help the world evolve is filled with as many lows as it is highs. Celebrate them all, because you can learn from them and, to be honest, they’ll be here anyway.
I’ve experienced some crazy highs and lows in my twenty-three years in this life, and I’m just now beginning to accept and learn from them. They’re unavoidable, but if approached the right way, they can lead to greater things.
By teaching you about yourself and the way you respond to the world, the highs and lows in life provide a type of spiritual education. So, when something bad happens, try to shrug off the negative energy. By no means should you be careless or apathetic about it, but rather, take it in stride.
Unexpected negative situations, such as a car breaking down or a basement flooding during a rainstorm, present one of the biggest obstacles to personal growth. They instantly promote a surge of fear and anxiety. Mountains of stress are soon to follow.
On the other hand, if you can be calm, take a breath, and stay centered when something bad happens, you might find a solution that would be unavailable had you remained afraid or anxious. At the absolute least, the situation would intimidate you less.
It helps when dealing with something bad to be calm, centered, and unwilling to let any panicky emotions affect you. Otherwise, the anxiety will eat you alive. That’s no way to live, and it certainly won’t lead to the liberation many of us hope for.
Through the good and bad times, the ability to be composed will encourage you to keep going and inspire you to achieve more. Within this calm state, you’ll find that the intuitive power of love is available anytime. Why not call on it when you need to clean up some unexpected mess in your life?
Whatever awful thing happens, keep your head up and let go of fear. Whatever disgruntled ego-centered inner voice tries to discourage you, replace it with an encouraging voice. Whatever doubt you feel in your heart, let it dissipate.
With passion and persistence, you can achieve anything. Never let your flame die, because it holds the key to your soul’s evolution. Whatever blocks your heart, clear it out and be open to this vibrant space again. You’ll quickly discover your power to overcome anything.
