On the soul level we all “choose” our problems, difficulties, struggles and pains.
It is a hard realization and many people are not ready to accept it .
“Why would i choose to have a cancer?”;
“I surely didn’t choose the father that beat me and tortured me all the way throughout my childhood”.
You didn’t decide it on the conscious level by using your mind, but your soul attracted that exact experience in order to facilitate and give you the opportunity for you maximum expansion and growth. As soon as your realize this, accept it and start to act accordingly, you’ll find a new and empowering way to look at your difficulties. Instead of feeling like a victim, like being constantly followed by a dark grey cloud of suffering and pain, you can take a step back and ask “Why did my soul choose this situation/relationship/event? What hidden gem is there that I can learn from, grow, become stronger, wiser, more compassionate and better human being?”
It is not something that happens in a day and instantly, it is a long process and we have to be consistent and dedicated if we want to shift our perception and use our struggles the best possible way. Taking on the role of the victim of our life circumstances is often more comfortable and easier and the pity of others can be soothing. However, don’t you prefer to feel empowered, strong, inspired and motivated? Don’t you want to experience that beautiful sense of relief and freedom that comes with shifting our perceptions and looking things from the different angle, digging beneath the surface?
I encourage you to try out this process. Write down about the struggles you’re going through and ask your Inner Guide why is it so, why are you passing through the certain situation and what there is to learn in order to allow you to grow and blossom from it.
Take care and stay tuned to your inner voice.
