Why God Does Not Prevent Certain Tragedies

Archangel MichaelTragedies, both big and small, affect all of us at one time or another in this lifetime. Many wonder why God, whose omnipotent powers can easily prevent these events from occurring in the first place, would allow such negative events to happen. To many people, it is incomprehensible why God would allow children to die, for people to be murdered, for loved ones to greatly suffer with debilitating diseases, and more. It is not because God revels in our pain. It has to do with contracts of the soul made before we were born.

Advanced Course for Soul Evolution

I have often stated that life on earth is the “advanced course for soul evolution.” Before we were born, we made agreements, referred to as soul contracts, to learn specific lessons for our souls in this lifetime. In heaven, we do not experience negativity like we do here. In order to learn lessons, it sometimes requires hard and fast challenges that push us beyond our comfort zones. Heaven does not provide all of the challenging circumstances required to take us to the next level of soul evolution. Because of that, we agree to experience a lifetime on earth in order to accelerate the pace of our personal growth. When creating our itinerary for our earthly journeys, we agree to certain lessons meant to build our faith, to learn how to love unconditionally, to overcome tragedy, to learn how to forgive ourselves and others, to help us rediscover the divine knowledge within our souls about the true reasons for our existence, or for countless other reasons that reach into the depths of our souls. The way the lessons occur are not necessarily spelled out in the agreements. This is because we have free will. Once we are born on earth, events are facilitated to create the optimal conditions for lessons. It requires a tremendous amount of real-time organization based on decisions we make which affect not only us, but also many others. There is a ripple effect with every decision that alters the paths we are on. I equate it to a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book in which the decisions you make determine where your path will lead you. Along the way, the lessons we learn often include challenging situations which create the optimum circumstances for us to learn. If God were to step in and try to avert these situations, we would not fulfill the lessons for our souls. Therefore, God is not punishing us, but allowing us to fulfill the destinies we agreed to in this lifetime.

Unique Paths Designed to Help One Another

On this earth, there are souls of various levels of soul evolvement. One soul is not better than the other due to the longevity of its existence or the wisdom accumulated in the totality of its existence. All of us, at one time, were younger souls. All of us our doing our best to fulfill our personal destinies, and all of our actions in some way assist one another with the lessons we have agreed to for this lifetime. For instance, older souls may have more difficult lessons in a short period of time in order to greatly increase the speed at which they comprehend and utilize divine knowledge. The tragedies they experience enable them to assist others along their paths from a place of understanding and love. They can do this because their experiences trigger the memories built into the soul regarding the reasons for our existence. Younger souls, who are more likely to operate from a place of fear rather than love, often assist others by acting as the catalysts for negative circumstances. One is not better than the other because both serve vital roles in the fulfillment of our destinies. No one is perfect, and yet everyone is perfect, as each and every one of us is in the process of learning and assisting one another in our divinely planned journeys.

Miracles

It is important to note that when miracles do happen, it is also tied into the lessons for our soul. If life was entirely negative here, we would be overwhelmed by feelings of hopelessness, and would possibly lose our incentive to continue our earthly journeys. Many lessons can be learned and reinforced through positive experiences. Miracles and extraordinary positive experiences are one of the many factors that encourage us to keep moving forward.

Positive Reasons for Negative Circumstances

The second important factor comes with the knowledge that every experience, no matter how negative, has a positive reason for occurring, even if we do not comprehend it at the time. On a day-to-day basis, I encourage people to continually look for the positive reasons for negative circumstances. Being able to see and comprehend the bigger picture helps to establish a level of calm, because instead of getting lost in the negativity and a feeling of being abandoned by God, you can better understand the underlying reasons on a soul level. It helps to lift your soul beyond confusion and pain in order to allow divine knowledge of the soul’s purpose to permeate your consciousness. The more you put this into practice, the faster you recognize the bigger picture connected to the lessons of your soul.

Support From Above

The third important factor that contributes to our overall well-being and success is the fact that we are not alone. We have an entire Heavenly Support Team made up of God, the angels, past spiritual masters, and loved ones in spirit who assist us on our journeys. Our guys and gals in heaven know how difficult life on earth can be. Because of that, they do whatever is in their power to help us with the fulfillment of our soul contracts. Again, there are times when they cannot interfere because there are decisions we must make on our own; however, they do send signs and messages that provide comfort, guidance, and love in their efforts to support us. Learning how they communicate across dimensions is immensely helpful, as it will give you conscious access to divine knowledge, as well as divine love which is at the heart of every being.

Providing a Glimpse into the Universe

This article offers a high level, yet simplistic explanation and overview for extremely complex topics about the inner workings of the universe and the purposes of our lives. The great magnitude of amazingly detailed interactions which create incredible cause and effect actions and reactions in real-time is challenging to describe in depth in such a brief article. It is my hope, however, that it has provided some understanding as to why we are here and why God does not swoop in and prevent tragedies, as well as providing a window of understanding into how events are coordinated on earth.

Namaste!

With much love and many blessings for all,

Resilience through Trust and Faith

AngelCircumstances beyond our control can sometimes be the cause for much angst in our lives. Everyone experiences stress; however, how we handle it and what we decide to do about it determines whether it will take over our lives or whether we will overcome it.

Trust and Faith are Earned and Learned

Having faith and trust is not a given. It is a choice that is made which includes the surrendering of the human ego that always wants to control outcomes. Anyone can say they have faith, but to live it is to experience it with all of your being. In our lifetimes on this earth, we will face many challenging circumstances that may make us question the existence of God and whether or not God is helping us and loves us. Trying circumstances are not tests or punishments, but rather opportunities to truly experience God through choices made with our free will. As we power through the tough times, it is often difficult to see the positive reasons for negative circumstances. One of the most important lessons I have learned in this lifetime is to continually look for the positive lessons and outcomes buried deep within negative situations and encounters. The more I have practiced this approach, the more I can see how events are facilitated on this plane for the benefit of all. In turn, my faith in God and the circumstances I face has significantly grown, bringing inner peace, understanding, knowledge, trust, and love to the heart of my being. No longer do I allow circumstances to overwhelm me to the point of immobility. Short bursts of fear, upset, or shock can and do creep in at times, especially at the onset of receiving news that unexpectedly causes a significant change of plans; however, I do my best to quickly let go of the fearful reactions from the human ego. As I work through the issues, I acknowledge the situation, knowing there is a positive purpose I may or may not understand at the time. I then begin the process of actively working on solutions for the best path for me, as well as for those involved. It is my faith and trust in my guys and gals in heaven, also known as my Heavenly Support Team, which brings the state of calm necessary for clarity in decision making.

The Cultivation Process

Over the years, I have cultivated great trust in myself and my Heavenly Support Team. Through the trying circumstances, they have taught me time and again that they are here to help and guide me when it is appropriate for them to step in and assist. It is important to note that they will withhold information when it is time for me to make pivotal decisions about my life. Free will to choose our paths is a gift given to us when we were created. The times when our guys and gals step back may be marked by a silence or an absence of feeling your personal loved ones in spirit around you. They are there; however, they are not allowed to interfere or influence your decision making process.

Shouldn’t we be Independent?

People have asked me why I would want help from my Heavenly Support Team. If we have free will and are supposed to grow through our independence, why would it be appropriate to ask for and receive help on this journey? While it is important to learn and make decisions on our own, it is equally important to know we are not alone on our journeys. Life on earth can be difficult and challenging; however, it holds many rewards.  Our guys and gals in heaven know this, and they know working together creates unity and synchronicity which greatly increases success for each individual, as well as for soul groups. The success they are helping us work towards is spiritual success. Our lives here are not about what jobs we have worked or money we have earned. Those are mundane aspects of life which are used as tools for lesson learning. Instead, our true mission is a spiritual one of the soul in which we learn to actively love ourselves and others while rediscovering the amazing connections we have with God and all of creation. Our guys and gals in heaven do what they can to be our cheerleaders, our guides, and our mentors. They are not interfering with our growth but supporting it through their love and knowledge while allowing us to make all of the important decisions on our own.

Improving Results

In this challenging maze of life, we are also here to help and be helped. No man or woman is an island. We are here to learn how to love one another and how to work with one another. Being open to giving and receiving from both earthly and heavenly sources is one of our largest lessons here, because it is based in love – the reason for our existence. There is no shame in asking for help when you need it. We are all a significant part of a team who, together, are experiencing a spiritual journey for our souls as human beings. When we open our hearts and minds with a fearlessness born out of trust and faith, we become resilient travelers who can overcome adversity and do anything we set our minds to accomplish. When we work together with those on earth and in heaven, the achievements have the potential to be even greater as the combined energies and unique talents greatly multiply the love and positive results.

Delving Deep

On earth, much of the knowledge built into our souls is often veiled from us. This is done to provide the challenges we requested in the form of soul contracts, which are the plans for the lessons we are to learn while we are here. One of our quests is to delve deep into our souls in order to bring the knowledge to light. It is a lifelong journey beset with challenges and setbacks, but also great rewards in the form of grace, inner peace, and love.

Reawaken Your Soul

Through my experiences, my Heavenly Support Team has earned my trust by showing me there is a world much bigger than ours and everything we experience here is for the beautiful reawakening of our souls to the light and love of heaven grounded within the hearts of our spirits. It is my hope and prayer for each and every being to recognize the great love from which we are created, as well as comprehend the vital importance of resilience built upon trust and faith in the divine reasons for our existence.

Namaste!

With much love and many blessings for all,

Having Trouble Making a Decision? The Answer Is Inside You

Decision-MakingFrom the moment you open your eyes each day to the time you close them to go to sleep, thousands of options and situations cross your path which require a decision from you. The decisions may be as simple as which toothpaste to buy, or as complex as which job offer you should accept. Each of the decisions you make has an impact on your life, and at times, the over-abundance of options may cause confusion as to which path to take or which option to choose.

A Built-In System for Discerning the Truth
When making any decision, it helps to be informed. Performing research can be very beneficial for the gathering of important information. This research can come from outside sources, such as the Internet, books, and knowledgeable people; however, you also have a built-in system that will help you make the choices that are in your best interest. This is where your intuition comes into play. Listening to your intuition, as well as the heart of your spirit, will lead you in the right direction. As you approach the crossroads of decision-making, your heavenly support team speaks to you through your spirit, and the messages are transmitted through intuitive and extrasensory senses.

Pay Attention to the Signs
If you are confused about which way to go, pay attention to the presence of red flags. Red flags are warning signals to you that can seem to be very subtle; however, if you are attentive and using your senses to guide you, you will be able to see, feel, and hear the truth that will guide you in a positive direction.

When you meet someone new, they will reveal who they are through their words, actions, and energy they share with you. When you get caught up in thinking about the future and your desired outcomes, there can be a tendency to overlook the clues and red flags that they are waving right in front of you in the present moment. For instance, you meet a new guy or gal that you are interested in, and you are completely enamored with them and enjoying the attention you are receiving. In the back of your mind, you may even be hoping that you and this person will be making a significant connection with one another that will lead to a long-term personal or business relationship. In your initial encounter, you will be receiving clues from this person about who they are, and whether or not this relationship will be good for you. Listen very closely to what this person is saying or not saying, how they are acting, and how you feel when you are around them.

Listen to the Messages Behind the Words
A person will reveal to you who they are and what they are interested in through the words they speak. For example, someone who is driven or motivated by money will focus his or her communications on that topic. You need to be actively listening to hear the true motivation behind this person’s words, because they may use flattery to distract your attention. They may even pressure you with strong tactics that attempt to invoke fear in you if you do not purchase his or her product or service on the spot, or go along with his or her plans. When conversation is heavily focused on material aspects, this person is most likely not interested in you or your best interests, but his or her wallet instead.

A person who is genuinely motivated to help you or to develop a relationship with you will not unduly pressure you. They will be interested in learning about you, whether it is for relationship purposes or to help you find a product or service that fits your needs. They will allow you time to make an informed decision. Even under conditions when an on-the-spot decision is required, you have the right to take a moment to process the information you received before making that decision. When someone strongly pressures you with fear-based tactics, it is a red flag because they do not want to give you time to think. They know that if you do, you will realize that this person does not have your interests at heart.

Interpreting Actions
On the surface, a person’s words may seem to be in accordance with your needs; however, this person’s actions may not match his or her words. Ask yourself:

  • Is the person you are interacting with treating you respectfully by being conscientious about your time, your needs, and your feelings?
  • Are they taking care of only his or her needs, or are they honoring yours as well?

The actions they take will reveal whether they truly care about you or if they are not interested in you as a person, but what you can offer them. Someone who does not have your best interests at heart will only be interested in taking care of himself or herself. People do make mistakes sometimes, and they can get wrapped up in their own worlds; however, if you have addressed your concerns with someone, and they do not take consistent steps toward improving the situation with you (taking one nice action and going back to ignoring your needs does not show improvement but a temporary effort to placate you), then they are truly not vested in developing a positive relationship with you.

Energetic and Emotional Clues
Your body and emotions will chime in and give you sensory clues for decisions you are facing. Many people refer to this as heeding your “gut instincts.” That is because the seat of your intuition is the solar plexus chakra, which is located in the region of your stomach. Paying attention to how you feel, such as calmness or anxiousness, as well as being sensitive to the feel of the energy that surrounds a situation or person, can provide you with helpful guidance in the decision-making process.

When you are around someone, pay attention to how his or her energy feels:

  • Are you picking up a negative vibration that is pushing you away or do you feel a positive connection that makes you feel very comfortable in his or her presence?
  • How about when you are purchasing a product or service? Are you strongly hesitating to buy it, or do you feel calm and confident about the choice you are about to make?

Positive energy radiates happiness, calm, peacefulness, and a sense of security. On the opposite end of the spectrum, negative energy feels heavy and uncomfortable. There is an old expression about feeling “tension that you can cut with a knife.” Whoever coined that phrase was very aware of the stress and negative energy that surrounded the situation they were facing.

As a note, both positive and negative energies are contagious. The more aware you are of your own energy, as well as that of others, the more you will be able to prevent yourself from being sucked into another person’s moods. Awareness will also help you become more proficient at determining the source of energy for decision-making purposes.

Putting It All Together
By attentively listening to the words a person shares, paying close attention to his or her actions, and picking up on the energy that you feel, you will be able to better navigate your way through the decision-making process. Combine the information you have received through your senses in order to determine the right path for you. Believe in yourself, and trust that your higher-self and your heavenly support team are assisting you to see, hear, and feel the signs in any situation. By heeding your intuition and following your heart, you will steer yourself in a positive direction that honors you and your needs.

Namaste!

With Light and Love,
