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 can make up in your mind that you are going to change and start immediately at making changes. You can consciously make drastic changes in a matter of minutes, but you have to know that you are going to be facing your subconscious mind programming that will pull you backwards, if you don't do the day to day work.
You may have situations in your life that you want to change overnight, but there's a Divine process that we all have to go through. I have felt this way about my health, I would have dreams of waking up, and all of a sudden I feel like my old self again, normal, like I used to feel. I had to get adjusted to a new normal. I had many internal tantrums about it, but I didn't get into a poor health condition overnight, so why would I expect it to change to "good health," overnight, right?
There was a time when I lived like I was going to die within months. I would be afraid to go to sleep because I was afraid that I wouldn't wake up. Lupus took me to those dark places. But then one day I was not afraid of waking up, in my mind, I was ready to die.
I was living like I was dying. I stopped giving care to my physical, emotional, financial, and mental states. I thought, "what's the use? I won't be here anyway." I wasn't afraid anymore. I was in a dark hole, and I had to face my own self to climb out. I couldn't see how I would ever get better from the poor health state that I was in. I was living out of spirit, in anger, and feeling sorry for myself. I wanted to force change so that I could skip over the painful process of healing. I needed to see it all, I need to see it all. The Divine path before me said, "No you will not go. You will be here, finish your work."
And then I will continue on, after my work here is done, I will go on, because now I know the my work is never done. I no longer think in that lowered mind frame. I don't even feel like I was ever that person, but I have to be honest and transparent, especially if I want to help someone else along my journey. I have been undoing all of the toxic and destructive cycles that I lived in since, I made up in my mind that not only was I going to live, but I am going to enjoy every moment that I can of it.
Great things take time, and there's a process in everything that we do. Every single step is imperative to our evolution, the events that we would rather sleep through, the ones that pose challenges for us, the ones that bring out our frustrations, and trigger our impatience.
We try to rush things to make them happen faster than they are meant to, when everything is on a Divine schedule.
We even want other people to change, change their ways, and we have no control over that. But we do have all the power to change how we deal with them. We can change what we allow to affect us, and how we see them. We can see ourselves in every person that we meet, if we look deep within with honesty.
If we don't change toxic situations that are not conducive to our healing and Divine purpose, we will meet with Divine intervention. We will be shown that we don't have the control that we think we have, when we are confronted with something that we cannot control, something that money can't fix. We will be forced to face our spiritual side when we don't listen to our inner voice, and what the highest spirit that lives inside of us is trying to convey to us. We ignore The Most High's voice, it's our intuition, saying to us, "move, go, no, stop."
When we don't listen to the voice of Spirit, take heed to the flashes and signs of dangers ahead, we are met with a Divine force to change. Our time runs out and we are forced to make drastic changes overnight, all because we thought that we had time, or that it would never happen to us. We keep going living our physical life, ignoring the unseen, and then we are forced to face ourselves. We are forced to heal. This happened to me. I had forgotten who I was and why I was here. I was in everyone else's face, hanging out doing what everyone was doing, ignoring my spiritual work, and I was hit by disease in my body that changed my life overnight. It seemed overnight, but the changes were happening all along, I wasn't paying attention to them.
The people that I was hanging out with, continued what they were doing, nothing stopped or was interrupted for them, and I felt like no one understood. I had to come to understand that we all have a path, and no one walks the same path. I am grateful that it all happened to me, because it awakened me to my true nature. It led me back to my Divine right, to remember who I am.
I was forced to change, if I didn't change, it would't have just been uncomfortable,
I wouldn't have my life.
Take care of your health, spirit, mind, and body, so that you can take care of yourself. Your health is your true wealth.
