THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE
Come, sit with me, close your eyes, hold my hand, let's go far away from this place to the place in which you came from.
"You're not being rejected, you're being Divinely Re-directed"
Go that way, flow that way, the way the wind is pushing you.
Don't go against it, I don't care how much it pulls you
Lean into it and let it flow through you.
This is topic is the narrative of my life right now, and I have lived through this type of story line many times before, and I am sure to live through it again. First of all I want to say, giving honor to God, and I thank God for the correction, for the re-direction, and for getting my attention.
Have you ever overlooked what God was telling you, to do what you wanted to do? Have you done something that your heart was saying no to you, to not do? Have you done something that brought you to feel the low vibration of regret? I have done them all and more. I fought against the wind, and I pushed forward with leaves and trees blowing in my eyes to get to what I thought I wanted, to get to what I thought would help me, and satisfy me. I have faced regret over and over again from not listening to Divine power.
For one, anything that we have to force is not our divine direction. We look at failure as we fell short or messed up in some kind of way, but it's the Universe changing the direction for us. It is the Universe telling us that there is a different way to go about doing what we are doing. I have embarked upon some new paths lately and they have come back to backfire, well so it seemed.
We can try but,
we can't go around faith.
And when your fear is stronger than your faith, your fear will win every single time. I have been making a conscious effort to practice making my faith stronger. I pray for more faith. I write about more faith, because without faith, our works are in vain. True faith is going through the water even when you can't see the depth of it, going through the water when there's no light shinning upon it. You keep going, because you know that if you turn back you will drown. You keep going because you have faith that grace will lead you to the other side.
If you really think about it, we have to rely on faith each day. We must have faith that we can get to our destinations safely. We must have faith that our loved ones will be safe and protected on their journeys. We have to have faith that we will wake up every day. We have to have faith in whatever we are setting out to do, that it will be done.
The faith over fear battle can become intense when you're in a situation where you don't know how it will be done, how it will be fixed, how will you get out of it. You develop a close walk with The Most High because you know that what you need done will not come about from your human mind. I mean you really become serious about protecting your faith and keeping your energies close to God.
In having faith, we have to let go too. We have to let go of the path that we are on when we are divinely interrupted. We think that our world is falling apart when in actuality it's coming together for us. We can't see that far ahead with our human eyes. We think that our world is falling apart when the Divine path is trying to show us something new. We go against the grain, fighting to keep the old instead of embracing the new. We question ourselves wondering if we're making the right decisions. God stands in front of us to protect us, blocking us, telling us to walk away, go another way, still we try to stay.
This is me. I have done those things thinking that I was going to fix things. I am not in control of destiny, God has plans for me. I knew about these plans once before, but I forgot, I went off course thinking that I could correct things, and God has shown me. I asked for direction and then stopped listening.
I pray that God shows me the way. I thank God for showing me the way. I pray that God shows you the way. Don't ask God to show you the way and then go a different direction.
When you ask God for direction be ready to listen. Be ready to go in directions of the unknown where you have nothing but faith to lean on. It's so easy to have faith when you have everything that you need, and things are going well in your life. But when life shakes you up, and your world is tossed around, you realize that it is not you that holds all of the control. You realize that it is not you that can fix everything.
The Universe knows what's best for you and it is constantly working with you protecting you by showing you the signs. Follow the signs and be obedient to the Great Spirit, this powerful Spirit that dwells in all of us. We all have access to this profound Spirit and the most fascinating things happen when we let go and listen to it.
Have you ever held onto a relationship with a friend or lover when Spirit was telling you no? Have you ever felt physical discomfort in your body when Spirit was trying to stop you from going? When we feel like we are being rejected, we are just being Divinely redirected. God is showing us who is for us and how we need to focus on ourselves. The Universe has a tricky way of showing us that we need to focus on self-care, self-love, self-forgiveness, and self-healing. When you felt rejected I can guarantee you that you were out of alignment with your true nature. You were holding onto something that wasn't for you. You were going forward ignoring the red flags waving in front of you. You couldn't see because you were only looking to see what you wanted to see. You weren't listening to what your inner voice was saying to you. I know all too well because this has been me again and again.
And when I encountered the painful experience of being rejected it turned me to focus on me. It turned me to make a better inner me. It turned me to tune into my inner being and listen to what was happening. I stopped operating outside of myself, and every time that I have stepped outside of the boundaries of my path, God has led me back in. It will be painful to be pulled back into alignment, but one must go within. If you want any kind of manifestation and affirmation to come true, you must be willing to go back to you, before you're forced to.
I have been pushed back into line, I have been moved back into place, I feel like I have been shoved back into place, and I have been disobedient to the Voice. I have been out of alignment, thinking, saying, and doing things that are not in alignment with my highest self. I have gone low, I have thought the most destructive thoughts, I have contemplated giving up, and I have been disgusted with myself and my actions. And through all of the self-abuse that I have put myself through, I found that I could reach inside of myself and touch God.
Each time that I have been rejected God has something better in mind for me. Each time that I have been rejected, I have learned that it wasn't my door that I was knocking at. I learned with each rejection to get on my own path. With rejection, I have been guided to higher dimensions within me. I have gotten better at letting go of things that are not meant for me. I have mastered keeping my distance from people and things that are not in alignment with me. I have stayed out of other people's business, letting them do their own things.
You can check on someone and see how they're feeling without being in their business. Let people tell you what they want to without asking or implying. All you need to know is within, all you need to know will come to you, you don't have to wonder when. Everything is on time. Nothing is late. You are here, you there, and t-here is still here.
When you feel rejected, you realize that you can't go around faith. You come to understand that it is faith that will get you across the bridge between you and whatever you're seeking. You come to know how strong your faith is when you are feeling rejected. You begin to see what God has sent you here to do. You focus on your inner state of being and your awareness becomes clear. You crawl out of the inner mess within yourself to find that you have to love yourself all over again.
You claw back to higher vibrations.
It is extremely painful to experience rejection. You begin to question where you went wrong, what's wrong with you, and everything else about you. You never think for a second that something could be wrong with the other person. Something is going on inside of them that actually has nothing to do with you. You hardly think that you are not on the same vibrational
frequency as them. You don't understand why your spirit brings rejection with them. Rejection makes us feel so isolated and self-centered as if we are the only one going through it. Our world begins to look small and you feel like the other person is judging you. And through all of the hurt, shame, blame, insecurity, and fear, you grow stronger. You learn to detach from these worldly things. You come to overstand that when you exit, you can't take anything.
You learn the lesson that you came here to learn, you learn to lean into the chest of God, and that is you must detach from these things, these people, everything, even your existence.
