LET YOUR SPIRIT SPEAK TO YOU
It does not matter what others say to you, let your spirit speak to you, listen to that inner voice, the one that is nagging you to do something, to listen, to take heed, it is your spirit that wishes you to listen to the wisdom of the ancients.
This wise knowledge is available to all and yet so often ignored, often through ignorance of a presence that is within you. Some call this God, others may call it intuition, but it really does not matter what label is given, it is there to serve your highest good, and to support you in your hour of need.
So many of you are confused, whether to go this way or that, whether to stay or go, or are struggling to make any firm decision at all. Of course there are times when you need to hold back and review the situation, especially when there does not appear to be a clear path opening up in front of you, but there are other times when you know you have to take action, but do not because of your fear of the unknown.
Your spirit knows your life path, your spirit knows everything there is to know about you and much more, it has access to all the lifetimes you have lived and understands you much better than you do yourself. So in times of need I would encourage you to first listen within, and debate later. I know life can be challenging, but that is what makes it so interesting, especially when you realise it’s only your perception that creates a dark cloud of depression over you.
But you must also realise that a beautiful rainbow is behind the dark cloud that so affects you, so change how you look at your current circumstances, and know for sure that change is on the way.
It is during these challenging moments that you will learn to be still and come within, and it is in the void that you will in time find the answer you are seeking. Perhaps the answer will not come today, perhaps you will only get a little glimpse of what could be, but do not let your hurry to a solution cloud your judgement, or throw away the chance to see the illumination that you seek.
When you are immersed within the dark cloud and feel depressed, even the most sprightly spirit soul will not attempt to push through the darkness to reach you. But if even in the midst of darkness you can see a chink of light, a flash of sunlight, concentrate on that with all your might, and watch it slowly grow bigger and bigger, obliterating the clouds in front of your very eyes.
I know this is not as easy as I make it sound, but I assure you that if you ‘speak out loud’ and are willing to hear your spirit speak to you, it will, and in no uncertain terms. It may be at first there is just a glimmer of hope, a thought of something you had not considered before, that you could now explore, or you may get an intuitive nudge to make that call, or go see someone on the spur of the moment.
When you get the call to you must act even if you are not sure where you are going, just get in the car, or start walking and ask to be taken to where you need to go. You may fancy a cup of coffee and as you sit down at your table you see a friendly face in front of you, and it is that friendly soul you were meant to meet on this particular day.
Perhaps you share a similar story, perhaps you were there to comfort her, not the other way around as you first thought. Perhaps you made a great new friend that day, but you will never know unless you take the chance to listen to the still small voice that urges you out of the darkness, and into the sunlight of your dreams.
And if your dreams have been squashed, or if someone has let you down, or should another unjustly attack you, these events can all be overcome by changing your attitude. And if you listen to the spirit within it will help you gain a new perspective. Perhaps you were there to learn something, or perhaps you had to learn not to trust everybody at face value. So this may have been a lesson for you to ensure you do not make the same mistake in the future.
Your spirit only wishes to protect you, and knows that you must forge your own way forward. Along the way there can be some nasty bumps along the road, but it is the challenges that you face that make you much stronger than you have ever been, so see each lesson learnt as a victory, and congratulate yourself for confronting the problem head on.
It takes a brave person to know when they are wrong and admit it, and it takes a wise person to know when to speak, or not. Watch what comes out of your mouth because once uttered those words can never be retracted, and even an apology can leave a nasty taste in the mouth. So do not utter (or even think) bad things, even though it might be tempting in that moment to respond. But if you do, the only person you hurt is yourself, because you are showing your vulnerability and the power that another has over you.
So decide that next time you will be stronger, knowing that you can gently extract yourself from the situation without any hurt feelings on either side, then you will have won the battle. Later you might review the hurtful words spoken to you and wonder why the attack took place. My dearest one please understand it is not you they are attacking, it is their fear, their hurt, their feelings of shame, that prompts such an unhealthy reaction.
I know the shock of an unexpected attack can be very upsetting, but try not to let this affect you. Sit quietly and reflect, and try to release your anger by understanding the hurt and confusion the other person is feeling. It’s possible that you may have inadvertently made an innocent remark that acted as a trigger, one that could not be contained any longer, and you just happened to be in the firing line. But do not take this personally because they too are probably wondering what made them act with such disquiet and lack of respect for you.
So in every circumstance, how you perceive this or whether you feel it is good or bad is up to you. So let your soul spirit guide and comfort you especially if you are feeling confused or lost. Your person may wish to apologise by saying ‘they didn’t really mean it’ not realising the damage that has taken place, but this will always be remembered in the heart of the one who was attacked. But you must remember to acknowledge that it happened, but do not linger on it, and bless them because they maybe totally unaware of the hurt they caused you.
There are of course some occasions where an attack is calculated, and if this is the case you must terminate the relationship and not allow yourself to be placed in such a vulnerable position again. Walk away when you know that this person is toxic, but should you decide to stay, know that they will only use you as a punch bag, as the cycle of abuse repeats once more.
So is it not nice to know that you have a wise spirit inside you that can help guide you through the challenges of life? You never walk this path alone although many believe they do. But in truth, spirit is with you and they witness all your challenges as well as the joyful times, so know that your heart will heal, and will sing once more.
One day you will wake up and feel different, and you might wonder at the feeling of lightness, something that you have not experienced for a very long time. See the rainbow over your head, and know that heaven is smiling on you as it can see all beautiful blessings heading your way, ones that will change your life forever more.
Do not ever give up hope, there is always a way out, there is always another miracle on its way to you. God is aware of everything, he asks you to have courage to believe that you are being supported in every way, and in every single day of your life forever more.
