We are all on a journey through this roller coaster that we call life. We all try to understand it as best as we can. Some of us turn to scriptures to find the meaning of life, others to philosophy, and still others to spirituality. And then there are the rationalists, who believe that life is simply a string of random – or logical – events and then you die.
There is no one answer to describe this journey – there rarely is. There is the answer that resonates with you.
We are more than just our bodies, more than just our minds. There is a part of us that is timeless and evolving – that is the part we call our soul. Our soul is a fragment of the divine consciousness come to this plane to experience what it means to be human. It is the part of ourselves that is beyond time and space, beyond the mundane motions of daily life. It is here to experience a certain set of circumstances, determined by the place and parents we are born to. And from those building blocks, it then urges us to remember who we are at our core – that despite every hardship around us, we are a divine spark that is built of unconditional love.
And if we are unconditional love, if we carry within our DNA that magical universal consciousness, how can we imagine that anything we go through is meant to break us? Or that it is our fate to suffer? How can we imagine that we are unloved or forgotten or unworthy?
We are here, in this huge cosmic playground, to experience it all – love, joy, sorrow, heartbreak, success, failure, defeat, rejection, acceptance. And to remember that no matter these transient events, these daily challenges and tears and joy and laughter, we have the capacity to be love. To rise and go forward. To persevere.
Not just with our human frailties, but with our divine magnificence – with some help and guidance from our soul team and our higher self. And this is where belief and intuition come in. It is the map by which we remember our way home…by which we remember who we are – that we are bigger than our circumstances, that we can overcome anything, that we have the resilience to deal with the life that we are given, and that despite everything, we are loved.
Intuition is a gift that everyone has. Some of us have forgotten it, and like any forgotten muscle, we need to exercise it. There are a lot of ways to tap into intuition – tools like pendulums and tarot/oracle cards help, as do meditation and stillness practices, energy work, movement practices and sound therapy. The ways are many – we need to try a few, choose the ones that resonate, and walk our path with love.
The despair won’t go away. The tough times may not magically disappear. But they will lose their power to devastate you as much once you realize the truth: You are a divine spark and you are never alone Click To Tweet
