I want to continue to review all that we have accomplished. We have continued to eliminate negative thinking, label read, recognize the importance of breathing, add positive affirmations into our daily lives, eliminate high fructose corn syrup (fructose as well) & dyes from our diet, sit in silence within nature for 30 minutes a day, set goals in our lives, eliminate preservatives from the diet, practice forgiveness, offer an attitude to gratitude, drink a glass of water each morning before we put anything into our bodies, offer more love to others in our life, eat more raw foods, let go of preconceived ideas, be impeccable with our word, drink half our body weight in ounces of water, made a personal mission statement, rest for 20 minutes a day, eliminate sugar & sugar substitutes, not take things personally, look for the positive in others, take a 30 minute walk every day, find our own personal truth, practice being better listeners, reduce our daily meat consumption overall, laugh more often and this week we are going to look for the positive in all situations.
As we grow up, many of us aren’t blessed to have Jesus like or Buddha like parents that show up the good in tragedies. Most of our parents just do the best they can. They show stress when stressed and they find sadness & anger in situations where it may fit. Some of us have been lucky enough to be taught that good comes in all ways and in all forms. Even though life throws us hardships & trying times, there are definitive reasons & lessons that will prove as blessings if recognized and learned.
Some examples may be going through a divorce, losing a loved one, going through property damage that puts you out of business or even the threat of losing your home. These things are real losses that are allowed the expressions of sorrow, loss and more. These things also could be the parting in an already treacherous sky that is going to pave the way for even more abundance than what currently exists. For example, going through a divorce could allow someone to heal the areas in their life that created hardship in the marriage. It could allow for greater self-love, more focused & devoted time to children, a healthier home environment or even for the love of your life to now enter offering you the relationship that you always dreamed to have with another.
For me, losing a love one allowed me to connect the deepest I ever have so far in my entire life to God, Spirit and the Source of all our creations. It has allowed me to find a deeper spiritual relationship with my daughter that passed away even more so the years she has been gone. It has allowed me to meet a guardian angel in my life in physical form. Her passing allowed her to complete her life mission without having to stay for heartache and to watch worldly struggles through a human versus spiritual point of view. She is no longer suffering and in pain that she experienced at times through her diagnosis. I have been able to accept my many missions in life and know that I am supported through divine love & light. It has offered me the strength to know that I have walked through fire and I can utilize those life lessons to serve and teach others through my own life experiences. The positives that continue to come out of one of the most negative event in my life has been a miracle.
In the instance of property damage or losing a home, I think about what could happen in the future. Maybe that structure isn’t sound and would collapse with people in it as a business liability. Maybe one day you will find a car ran through the home or it catches on fire. There is always a reason and it may not be evident in the moment, but having faith in that reason whether ever found or not can greatly assist in a very misunderstood time.
Some of the most successful and influential people in history had tragedy affect them in many forms. Often that is what shapes them into the role model and servant to humanity that they become. All of this and more are reasons to look for the positive in all situations. It is always there even though it may be beyond cloudy at times.
Best of luck as you continue this transformative journey! I know that each week we are all closer to a more whole, happier version of ourselves. Give yourself a hug or pat on the back for all your weeks of hard work!
