I am a Healer, Psychologist, educator and Sound Therapist with an avid interest in consciousness and transpersonal experiences. Oh and did I mention Astrology?
I've been considering how this 'spiritual path' can be such a slog. It seems that we no sooner get over one 'difficulty' than others turn up to replace them. We are challenged and feel like giving up at times. Although it can seem like very hard work, I have realised that these intrusions are a very good thing afterall.
When we are willing to change ourselves and put out our intentions to make this world a better place, it all starts on the inside. For this reason old patterns surface and aggravation increases as we want to be rid of the dross in order to move forward and grow peacefully. The more these challenges arise the more frustrated we can get. However, it is actually a sign that we are making great progress. We are weeding out the old and being given a valid opportunity to review how we deal with situations and relationships, not least that of valuing our own self. This in itself allows us to realign our thoughts, feelings and actions to our new purpose.
In this respect I have just been told that there is some work going where I was previously employed. Its interesting to note that I thought I had completely let go of that and yet here it is raising its head again. I believe this is a temptation to go backwards, seemingly offering some sort of security. I know this is an illusion and my determination is only to move forwards. I remain resolute despite what may appear to others as having no obvious solid ground beneath my feet.
Your path will also wend and weave its way in unexpected twists and turns. Temptations will abound, craving you to leave your path and find 'security' in lesser things. However, when you are true to your heart's calling and listen to your soul's prompting you will know instinctively what to do and you will find your way through the undergrowth.
Keep On Keeping On!!!
