At some point we will all face challenging times.
Times that will shake you to your core.
Experiences that will test your faith.
Situations that challenge your commitment to your dream.
Heartbreak that will cause you to question your ability to love again.
Challenge is a part of life and being human.
There is no escaping. Simply accept it.
If you are in the midst of challenging times know that there is nothing wrong. You didn’t do your visualizations incorrectly, not think enough positive thoughts, or not meditate enough.
Consider that life is giving you the opportunity to let go of what is no longer in alignment with your highest most authentic self.
When things seem to fall apart it’s tempting to hold on to the old and familiar for a sense of safety. Instead, let go and see what is truly seeking to emerge.
During challenging times it’s easy to get disheartened and lose hope. Instead keep the faith staying true to your vision.
So when faced with challenges ask yourself:
What’s the gift of this challenging time?
What are the lessons that my soul is seeking to experience?
In the future what will I look back and say was great about this moment?
Life is an opportunity to grow and evolve. This is why we are born. Every experience is an invitation to become more of who you truly are and evolve as a soul.
Challenging situations are like the gymnasium for your souls growth.
Every challenge invites you to become stronger. Every challenge invites you to expand beyond who you have been and to find out who you really are.
Know that: You wouldn’t be facing the challenge that you currently are if you weren’t ready. The fact that it’s presented itself means you are ready and already have the inner resources to deal with it.
Trust that you can handle it.
So when you are in the midst of a challenge:
– Accept the situation as it is rather than fighting or resisting it.
– Know that “This too shall pass.” Nothing, no matter how difficult lasts forever.
– Take responsibility by focusing on what you can control rather than what you can’t.
– Embrace the learning opportunity that the challenge is giving you.
– Take all the action that there is take that is in your power.
– Surrender the outcome to the Universe and let go.
When you surrender you bring yourself in the flow of grace. And open yourself to more than you could have imagined!
Challenging times are an invitation to the next level of yourself.
Challenging times are a gift to your spiritual growth.
Stop waiting for the day you have no challenges.
Don’t pray for life to get easier.
Instead growing your capacity to be stronger and deal with more of life.
You are capable of so much more than you can possibly imagine.
You can do it.
