Whatever happens in your experience is precisely what is needed for the next steps of your spiritual growth. The highs and lows of life awaken deeper aspects of your inner wisdom. When you can be fully present within the circumstances of your life situation and consciously reside in the energy which unfolds, you will be able to face the shadows and emerge strengthened.
Moment of challenge are absolutely required in order to bring limiting beliefs to the surface. In those moments, utilize conscious breath to clear the mind and simply observe what is. The light of your conscious awareness transforms all that it shines upon and awareness is the first step of change.
The more aware you become of habitual patterns, limiting thoughts and reactivity, the less control these things will have in your experience. Initially they may seem overwhelming; however, as your spiritual journey progresses, you’ll process through them more and more quickly until you find that you have set yourself free.
