I've been doing a lot of reading, studying, meditating, conversing (and laughing) since I opened Beleno Spiritual Healing Center. It's a big, big undertaking for me and I want to be sure I stay centered and focused as I lead people to discover the joys that life has to offer.
One important thing I discovered yesterday is that the old adage, "What lesson did you learn from that experience?" really is a myth. There are no lessons in this life to be learned. Really? you say. That can't be so. I must have needed to learn something from that job that didn't work out or the relationship that failed, right?
But I ask you to consider this: Maybe the uncomfortable incidents that we've gone through are not designed to make us "learn something." Perhaps they are simply there to show us where we are not aligned with our highest and best selves. Off the path of doing what our souls came here to experience. Maybe that job didn't suit your higher purpose? In fact, I bet it didn't! And that relationship? Were you able to be your authentic self? Were they?
As I listened to one of my favorite spiritual teachers, Matt Kahn, his words resonated with me. In a nutshell, when you experience stress, it is simply your body reminding you that you are aligned with ego, not the Divine. When you are in alignment with your higher self, you cannot experience stress. Essentially, chaos ensues when a whole bunch of people get together that are aligned with ego, not their souls, and they all interact with their own agendas.
How do you not align with ego, you may ask? (And I'm not talking about egotistical, that's a whole different meaning. I'm talking about the thinking part of ourselves, not the feeling part.)
Two ways: By asking for help from your higher self, Source, God, angels, the universe...whatever you want to call it. Understand that you cannot, and were not, designed to navigate all of these challenges alone. And secondly, by tuning into your intuition. Really listen to your gut and heart feelings. They will always steer you in the direction of your soul's higher purpose...and that is always a joyful, loving place. YOU know what your gut is telling you, you just need to listen and follow.
I love talking with the practitioners in the Center. Each one of us brings a new perspective to the table of universal energy. As this week unfolded with new revelations, one of the practitioner's family members took this photo and sent it to her:
Astounded? We were. And there was every coincidence that we were supposed to receive this image as a group this week. Powerful, healing things happen when a bunch of like-minded, purposeful souls join together to uplift humanity, bringing to life laughter, joy, peace and purpose. Rest assured that YOU ARE SAFE as you embark on your own personal enlightenment journey, and we're here to help you.
Healing ourselves heals the world. Give it a try...here's proof the angels are protecting you, what have you got to lose?
Live in love,
Carrie, with a lot of Spiritual guidance!
