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.
"There is Nothing Broken About You"
I don't know if anyone has ever told you, and it shouldn't have to be said, but you are enough. I don't care if you feel invisible at times, like you're ignored, you are more than enough. You are already complete. You may be a part of a larger puzzle, but you came into this realm whole, and you will always be whole. There is nothing broken about you.
Sometimes we don't think that we're doing enough, people can trigger us to feel that we aren't enough, and we can go through experiences in life that makes us feel like we're less than enough. We will say that we don't feel that way, but sometimes what we allow in our lives tells a different story. How we allow people to treat us can also tell a different tale too, because when we feel complete we don't look for someone else or something else to find that complete feeling. We need no attention, recognition, and validation, whenever we feel complete.
We are hard on ourselves from the adverse experiences that we've lived through when those experiences are just part of the grand scheme to lead us back to our true nature. The Universe demands our attention to stay on track for our Divine purpose. You ever notice that people pray hardest when things are hard in their lives? We become aware when things seem to be falling apart in our lives? It's easy to fall off course when things are going great for us and to put aside our purpose, and to get lost in what the world around us is doing
When things appear to go wrong for us, it is for us, it is for our highest good. When things are going what we perceive as wrong, we see everything as going wrong, as if the Universe is turning against us, when in actuality the Universe is preparing us for something greater. I have found the when something that's so called bad happens in my life, something equally good or better happens in return, and it doesn't take long. The turnaround for adverse experiences is swift, and I realize that trouble doesn't last always. But when we are in the thickness of trouble, it feels that way. The pendulum always swings, and it swings back in our favor.
It always happens, you just have to pay attention to what's happening in your life, pay attention to the signs. When we think it's the worse thing to happen to us, something wonderful follows for us right afterward. After we have sulked, worried, and gone through every emotion from faith to doubt, to contemplating giving up, something extraordinary happens for us. We call it a miracle, but it just the Universe's way of showing us that it never fails, it never lets us down. We belong here, we have Divine purposes, and we are all that there is. What is this place without us? Our energy fills the entire place, you can feel it all around you, everywhere you go.
Expect great things to happen for you. I expect the best to happen for me, and I feel like whatever happens is the best for me, otherwise it wouldn't be that way. I didn't always look at things this way, I used to think that things would never get better for me, but they did. I had to start looking at occurrences in my life as trying to teach me something, to show me something, and to elevate me higher. I used to have what I would call bad experiences, and think that I was being punished. I would feel sorry for myself and feel like I was in a world all by myself. I drowned myself in my own sorrows when I couldn't swim.
As I watched the people around me live healthy and active lives, I would wonder why I was stricken with such a painful disease as lupus. But that painful disease changed me, and completely turned my life around. I wasn't aware before I experienced disease, I was asleep to the choices that I was making in my life. I am not saying that everyone should experience disease to wake up, we are all brought to awareness by different experiences. There are different triggers for everyone. Every person who experiences disease isn't awakened by the experience of it. Waking up out of your ways, your grudges, your anger, and fear can be scary, it's easier to remain stubborn, and stay there. It can be scary to change, but it is also exciting, because now you get a new chance, and you see with new eyes.
All of us have experienced things that we would rather not have experienced in this lifetime, but if you look back at the experiences, you will see that it shaped you for who you are now. It changes us on the deepest levels, and we don't look at things the same anymore. We can't turn back and go back to the way we use to be, we don't want to. I will tell you this, the experiences that I have encountered have taught me to have a short memory, and move on. I was so used to holding onto things, saying what I could have done differently, what I should have done, when everything happened in Divine order.
This Universe is inside of you, and you have access to all of what the Universe has to offer. We came here fully equipped with everything that we need. We don't fully know our capabilities, they are beyond what we can imagine, and we probably will never know our full potentials. But we are not small, and when we play small, we are insulting God. We came here with gifts, these gifts can't be bought, but they can make us a fortune. Everyone has gifts, and we are all geniuses in something. No two people are the same. You are original, there is no one like you, there will never be anyone like you, that's how special you are.
No one can break you. The idea of being broken is false. Besides broken can be fixed and restored. You may get wounded, but you are never broken. Wounds heal. People will do things to you to try and break you, to break your spirit, but you can't let them inside of your mind, inside of your soul. There are things that can happen that seem to tear you down, but there is always a higher power working in the background on your behalf. I have felt broken beyond repair. I have looked at my life and felt that there was no way that I would ever get better. I felt that my life wasn't getting better, and as long as I felt that, it was reinforced in the results of my life.
I am optimistic by nature, some would say that I am overly optimistic if that's a thing, but it's better than being overly doubtful. If you think about doubts, they don't even feel right when you're thinking them. My life has been spared many times when I could have died, and when I called out to God, I was heard. I have felt myself dying and I had to overpower the feeling in saying, "not today, not like this." These experiences not only changed me forever, but they put me in focus to live my life the way I want to, making no apologies.
We are way too hard on ourselves. We do our best everyday. We make efforts in all that we do. Whatever you are doing now, however you feel, know that it is the best that you can do right now. Everything is a process, and we move from stage to stage in life, going through different challenges and experiences for our personal growth. You are working as hard as you can, and I don't even believe in hard work. I don't believe that it has to be hard, or that it should be hard, I believe that when we let go, and trust the Universe, all great things just flow to us naturally. The Universe is always working for us, especially when we are giving our all to do the right things, and to do right by people.
You are magnificent, beautiful, and whole. I see the God in every person that I meet. I look at them and say, "Wow this is a representation of God in the flesh." That's how I see myself, so I know there's always a higher power working with me and not against me. I have access to this power at all times just like you do. It's easy for me to look past offenses and not be judgmental because I know that everyone is heading in the same direction, although we are not traveling at the same pace. And if I am judging them, what am I trying to deflect from me? What does my judgments against other people say about me, when they are a reflection of me?
We all come from the same tree, and it's not a broken tree.
Thanks for reading! I am grateful for you always and forever!
There is something inside of you that is greater than any obstacle.
I love you,
