Can You Trust That Every Experience Is Exactly What It Needs to Be?
Can you trust that every* experience is exactly what it needs to be, even when it doesn’t seem to make sense? Even when it’s not what you wanted it to be?
We have a natural tendency to resist this statement. “But what about…?”
I channeled a message for someone that Spirit needed to make a certain experience deeply uncomfortable so it would finally push her toward making a specific change.
That night I had a dream that served this exact purpose for me in an extremely dramatic and painful way. The message was clearly for me as well.
We can’t just talk the talk. We have to walk the walk. This is far easier said than done.
The first step is always sitting with what is—or setting it aside until we are ready to look at it honestly.
When we’re ready, we can begin to ask questions with curiosity:
- How was I feeling before/during/after and how do I feel now?
- What aspect of this bothers me the most?
- What is something within my control that I can do to make this better?
- What is the deeper meaning of this?
- What can I learn from this?
My initial reaction to the dream was something like “WTF?!” I set it aside for a few hours and then sat with it for a while before seeking the deeper meaning through a shamanic journey.
There were several important messages there—information I would’ve missed if I had written it off and pretended it didn’t happen.
So feel/think/write/create/journey/whatever-works-for-you about it.
We do our best to process our experiences and we go on living.
