How many times have you asked yourself “Why Me?!” when life takes a turn?
Do you assume life is something that happens to you?
I feel empowered enough to say “Why not me?!”
I believe that it is not down to fate, or the gods or whatever we want to blame / thank for our life turning out the way it is – it is in fact ourselves.
The reason I believe this? I have been shown many things in communication with my spirit guides over the years, and have been told in these communications, that we are the ones who decide upon and “write” our life plan before we leave Spirit to come here in the physical.
We choose when or if to come here at all.
We may choose to write ourselves a life with tough and heartrending challenges in order to gain insight and knowledge into what we can endure, what our limits are, how to be of service and support others and to understand what it is that motivates us here when we are so far removed from Source.
We have “amnesia” concerning our past lives, life between lives at Source while we go through the trials of physical life because it would be like cheating on an exam if we already knew why we are experiencing everything here. We can receive guidance and snippets while we are here, but not full access to the plan, what would be the point of being here at all if we could?
Only when we return to Spirit can we discover whether we learned what we set out to and rose to the challenges we set.
We review our plan, our life lived. We can even play it back like a movie, determining whether we lived our life as best we could. If it turns out that we didn’t get it right at times, we learn powerful lessons. We may even decide to return for another very different lifetime but build in and experience similar spiritual lessons nd challenges to rise to.
We get to choose if and when we ever come here, we choose who we are born to, what happens to us – all the big stuff, even how and when we die is written into the plan ourselves.
When we go back Home to source we can access all the information our soul has experienced during this life and can add and compare it with our previous experiences over other lifetimes or from our time back in spirit form and become aware again of how these experiences make us grow on a spiritual level as an eternal soul.
Spirit guides are just like you or I, in that they can decide to come back too in their own life plan – but obviously not during a life span of a soul they have agreed to look out for.
Once we are back Home and have worked out our own lessons from a life here, we can also choose to be spirit guides to others in our soul group when they decide to come here.
Lets say the big life events are landmarks in life, labelled A, B, C and so on, (e.g. birth, marriage, children, losing loved ones, serious illness, our own death). How we get from A to B to C etc.. that’s down to our own free will and all the choices we make while we are here in the physical life.
We question “why me?” often while we are here, or may feel like a victim, but in truth we have just given ourselves the challenge of going through it.
I too have had some horrible times, still do in fact, but knowing why they happen gives me more of a sense of control – we are only as capable as our choices.
I guarantee we become far more evolved souls for all the joys, love, hardship and trials in each life we choose to experience.
How we choose to accept things we cannot control plays a huge part in our own spiritual evolution. We are constantly exercising our own free will and choice while we are here, hence some people decide upon bad choices in reaction to their circumstances.
How you choose to accept any situation you find yourself in, no matter how beautiful or dire a circumstance makes all the difference to your state of happiness. It really is an inside job!
Choose to be unhappy in life, and you shall be unhappy. Of course, life is not all sunshine and roses. We need to sit fully within painful experiences, grieve, mourn, and hold the mindset that we are capable of moving through the darkness to the brighter days again.
If you choose acceptance and to live your life to the best of your ability – you can find happiness and a reason to go on – no matter how dire your situation seems. I speak from experience, there is always light if we choose to look for it.
I personally choose to be inspired by people with seemingly unsurmountable problems who choose to focus on what they can do in life and let no negative experience or hurdle prevent them from progress and being inspired to live fully.
Know that the ultimate design is always your own, as you decided before this lifetime began.
