Above Difficult Moments
How hard it can be when life doesn't go as we'd hoped. When
relationships founder, when our jobs cease to fulfil, when good
friendships cool or come unstuck, our optimism disappears. Suddenly
the universe seems random and uncaring. Nothing seems to bring
us joy, and in quiet moments we wonder if we'll ever feel happy
again. Often our connection with the rest of life is fragile
at best, because we have decided how our lives should unfold.
Then when things do not happen the way we had hoped, we feel
When things go wrong, life does respond. In the times
that stretch us, life is nudging us beyond where we are, to where
we are meant to be physically, mentally, emotionally and/or spiritually.
When we can hold this understanding deep in our hearts, then
the way forward will become apparent with far greater ease. It
is then we discover we were in fact standing on the threshold
of a whole new way of experiencing life.
We achieve this by rising above the situation we are
currently in - by actively raising our soul vibrations, so we
are fully equipped to deal with whatever is before us with the
greatest wisdom possible. As we are Light-beings it is especially
important at these times to fill ourselves with Light - to be
around soul friends, to choose Light-filled activities
and places, that will feed us
Dr Edward Bach, founder of the healing Bach Flower Essences,
helps us understand this dynamic, when he described how his beautiful
essences work - 'They cure not by attacking the disease, but
by Higher Nature, in the presence of which disease melts away
as the snow in the sunshine.'
To allow the Light of higher consciousness to flood our being
in difficult moments is essential. We do this by stepping out
of our own way, and allowing Heaven centre stage - by letting
go of the outcome, by asking the highest of everyone concerned
may be achieved, and by having the courage to hold on to this
Our troubled situation will be resolved - generally not in the
way we had imagined. Often the solution is something we couldn't
have dreamt of, but that is perfect for all involved.
Then we realise that the universe is much more powerful, more
imaginative than we had thought. Let's experience life's many
tiny miracles by making room for them - not only in our happy
moments, but in times when we feel angry, despairing, or sad.
