I am trying to understand what the lesson I am to learn at this point. Then I came across this thought and it all became clearer. I have been focusing on the hurt part, not the lesson that Spirit is trying to teach me.
Today I have decided to shake off the hurt, wipe my tears and focus on what the lesson is that I need to learn. Oprah Winfrey once said “Lessons often come dressed up as detours and roadblocks.” There has been a whole series of them happening in my life right now.
I could be angry about this, but there is a clear lesson I need to learn. That it is time to move forward from all the is happening and not let it stop me from what it is that I want to accomplish. These detours and roadblocks are directing me to where I need to be.
As a Spiritualist, it isn’t always easy to understand what it is that Spirit wants from us. What is or is not happening for us doesn’t coincide with our desires. I did chose the word Discernment for 2019. That is what Spirit is forcing me to do. I also selected adventure and most importantly peace. Writing this I am seeing the importance of these three words in my lesson. To stretch beyond what I know is safe and branch out. That I am to be grateful for the experiences I have had, and now move on and expand my horizons.
I am to be who I am meant to be, not fit someone’s predefined definition that fits their needs. For too long I have molded myself into someone that fit in. I never rocked the boat for fear of losing love or admiration. I just did as I was told even though it did not feel right to me. That has changed, I get it. I am not to be that person. In loving myself fully I have no fear of losing it ever again.
Spirit wants me to be the one defining who I am and not someone else’s version. I am not here to compete or be better. My purpose is to share my gift and my struggles to help others. In loving myself I fulfill my purpose. So simple, yet I had to go and make it so complicated…
