A new year is approaching and we are bound to reflect on the past year. We reflect on the things that we are happy about and all the good things that we have accomplished. We remember with a smile the happy times we have experienced. We remember the blessings! We enjoy the memory of our successes. We look at what we would have liked to do differently and feel our regrets.
We also reflect on our challenges. There were difficult situations that changed us. Their impact on our life are sometimes dramatic. Within the most challenging times, we often receive our biggest blessings - if we are open to seeing it. Sometimes, pain or panic clouds our thoughts and we do not immediately perceive these situations as actual blessings. It only comes if we understand that behind that situation, there is a blessing for us. If we unwrap this gift, the message appears. How do we do this? Sitting quietly, feeling what wants to come up and being present with what is. It sounds simple but it is a challenge in itself. We are used to run away from fear and problems and not sit still and let them just rise up and hold them in loving presence. Once we find ourself being present with our fears or the difficult situation, it can unwrap itself and show it's blessing. What is my biggest lesson that I have learnt this year? What is the biggest gift for me from this year?
For me personally, I have felt stronger than ever that I can truly trust my intuition and follow it. It is necessary and vital for us to follow our own intuition and not anyone else's suggestion, guidance or input. Trust that all your answers lie within yourself. Every answer to every question there is, you will find within yourself.
Looking towards the New Year, everyone has plans, ideas and holds a hope in their heart for a better future. We put out our vision out on how we would like to be and how our life should be in the next year. Some people like to make New Year's Resolutions. Whatever your plan is for the New Year, we are living in exciting times right now. There are changes everywhere and the old gets purged. Old structures that no longer serve us are removed. These changes are certainly not always pleasant but very necessary so we are liberated from what no longer serves us. Everything that is not in alignment with Divine truth is being purged. Deceit and lies are being purged in the light of truth. We are forced to step up and step into our true nature. We can no longer pretend what we are not. We need to show our true colours. All masks are being removed. Let's move one more step into consciousness. Let's be true to our feelings and do not suppress them. Let's be honest with ourselves and others. Let's live our Divine plan of our life and not negate it any longer. Let's be brave in 2019! You and me, together - let's do this! I look forward to connecting with you in the following months and am wishing you Divine blessings for the New Year.
During times of trial, our spiritual guides are even closer to us, supporting us through what we experience. They are comforting us and illuminating our path so we may continue and complete our mission here on Earth. There are times when we don't listen to our guides' warning signs send via our intuition and we then find ourselves in difficulties that we need to face and overcome. In other times, our guides might not have the permission to intervene in a situation that is approaching but they are there to support us through it.
Our spirit guides are certainly coming much closer to us during those difficult times, comforting us when we cry, surrounding us with their immense and unconditional love for us. The pain we feel during our difficult times also shows how much we loved this thing we now have lost, may it be a person or our attachment to our living situation or something else.
We try to escape the pain through various ways like denial or too much activeness in our life. When we then finally hold still, not trying to change what is, we surrender. We stop fighting against what is and we stop our rebellion to have things go our way. Surrender! Oh, the beauty of it! We surrender our pain to the Divine and all the blessings are showered upon us! Within our unbearable pain, we feel God's love for us, we feel our spirit guides love for us and their compassion. In that moment, we heal. Our pain is offered up to the Divine and we receive the soothing healing energy in return. It doesn’t happen in one day, not in a few days but remembering this, we can always go back to this beautiful place and offer our pain up to the Divine, to transform and heal us.
The more we surrender, the more we heal. The more we heal, the more energy flows back to us and we are able to move on and create a new life. Every difficult situation carries a blessing within even when we do not perceive it straight away. Let go and let God guide us on our path. Accepting our mission in life and following our path to return to the Divine. Looking up towards the Divine at all times is our best choice during difficult times. We are always guided and shown our next step. The deeper we connect to the Divine, the easier the steps will be. May the Divine shower her blessings upon you now and forever!
