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,

Releasing the Past through Forgiveness

Woman PrayingWhether it is painful events in the recent past or from as far back as childhood, emotional, mental, and spiritual trauma can be released from your spirit through forgiveness of the person or people involved, including yourself.

Complex Decisions and Challenging Situations

As spiritual beings on a human journey, we decided to live a lifetime on this earth to learn lessons that will enable us to grow as souls. Many of the lessons we have chosen require complex decisions and challenging situations that can have a significant impact on the evolvement of not only our souls, but also on the souls of others. Because we are in a stage of learning, and are not all-knowing beings, mistakes will be made. It is important to forgive each other for the mistakes we make and to look beyond the pain to the lessons that are built into the situations we encounter on a daily basis.

Reasons and Choices

In order for our souls to evolve to a clearer understanding of the reasons for our existence, it is necessary to face challenges that make us question and think about our self-worth, our relationships and connections with others, and whether or not there really is a higher power that guides us.  The reason you experience tragic, sad, or disheartening events is not to drag you down, but to give you a choice. You can choose to let these situations mire you in negativity and self-pity, or you can choose see the blessings and lessons that God and the angels are assisting you with in order to open your heart, mind, and spirit to the truth that exists within your soul.

Why It Is Beneficial to Forgive

Forgiveness is an acknowledgement and a release of actions from the past that caused harm to yourself or others. Extending forgiveness does not mean that you are condoning the behavior that caused you or others harm. It means that you have come to terms with the situation and have made a conscious decision to release its hold on you. By recognizing that these events served a very important purpose in your soul evolvement, you can also learn how to express gratefulness for the lessons you learned. In order to do that though, you must be able to look beyond the pain in order to see how you were given the opportunity to grow as a soul. The rewards you receive for perceiving the patterns and lessons behind traumatizing events includes amazing enlightenment about yourself, others, and the universe as a whole, as well as a realization that these events were necessary steps toward achieving your dreams in this lifetime.

It is important to note that you do not have to be in someone’s presence in order to forgive them. You can extend forgiveness in your heart and mind by sending forgiving thoughts toward the situation and the people involved. Our connection in spirit with one another allows the messages to be received by the spirit of the person you are forgiving. The people that are here on earth may or may not be consciously aware of your message of forgiveness; however, the spirit that resides within them will have received and acknowledged the forgiveness you have extended.

What Happens When You Refuse to Forgive

Holding grudges, anger, and pain inside of yourself hurts you. Those negative emotions and thoughts prevent you from moving forward and draw toward you more unfortunate circumstances. When you are focused on the lower energies produced by fear and anger, you are dragging down your own energy. This will attract more situations to you that are harmful. By choosing to release negative emotions, you are releasing their hold on you. This will lighten your energetic load and free you up to attract more positive experiences in your life. Keep in mind that how you live your life is your choice. Whether you decide to remain mired in misery or rise above the challenges you face, it is the gift of free will that gives you the option to choose the path that you take.

If you need help extending forgiveness, you can ask the archangels for assistance. They will help you to release the negativity and heal the pain that you have been carrying.

 Repetition May Be Necessary

Even after you have extended forgiveness, there may be times when a situation will appear in your life that will bring to the surface old pain and remembrances of harmful situations. When this happens, you can extend forgiveness again and visualize the situation and the people involved as healed.

Setting Yourself Free

As you make the choice to free yourself from the past, you are also making the choice to open yourself up to love and more positive experiences. Your spirit will be lighter, and you may even feel as though a physical weight has been lifted from your body. Enjoy the benefits and freedom that comes from releasing your past, and shift your focus to the present—which is full of gifts and opportunities for making positive choices regarding your life path.

Namaste!

Coping with the Loss of a Loved One

Into the LightWhen loved ones cross over into Heaven, it can be a painful emotional experience for those who are left behind. We grieve because we miss the physical closeness of the person or pet whose presence made a difference in our lives. In essence, they are continuing on a spiritual journey that we cannot take with them because we are meant to stay here on earth and fulfill our own life purposes.

The feeling of loss can be devastating and heart-wrenching. Trying to continue on with our lives may be difficult as grief threatens to overwhelm our emotional well being. Grief is a natural feeling that accompanies loss; however, grief can be lessened with knowledge. Knowing that our Spirit does not die with our physical bodies lessens the pain of physical separation from our loved ones and changes our perceptions of the “finality” of death.

I am amazed every day with the communications that come through from Spirit. As a Spirit Medium, I know that this is not a residual energy of the person or pet who was here on earth, but an actual transmission of information in real time. They show me what they are doing in Heaven whether it is reuniting with loved ones who have already crossed or engaging in activities that bring them happiness.

Learning and evolving as a soul continues in Heaven. The lessons there are different than they are here on Earth. That is because the environment is completely different. On Earth, there is a lot of negativity and harder lessons to learn. The speed at which our soul evolves is much faster here on Earth due to the challenging circumstances we face. In Heaven, we thoughtfully review the lives that we have lived and determine the lessons we have learned and still need to learn. We embrace the knowledge that was veiled from us on Earth with compassion and understanding for ourselves and others. Anxiety is a thing of the past. From the communications I have received, Heaven is a not just a time to rest in joyful reunion, but also a time to make considerable contributions to all Spirit through meaningful jobs that assist those in Heaven and on Earth. For instance, one may choose to become a Guardian Angel or a Spirit Guide.

By knowing that our Spirit lives on, we can take comfort in knowing that death is not the end but a new beginning…the next phase of our journey and evolvement as a soul. For those here on Earth, the connection of the heart that our loved ones have with us never dies. In fact, it is the love that we hold in the heart of our Spirit that endures and allows communication to continue.

When confronted with the loss of a loved one from this Earth, take comfort in knowing that their Spirit lives on in Heaven and that, when the designated time of your passing arrives, you will be reunited with them. In the meantime, we have our own soul evolvement to attend to on Earth including learning how to release the grief of separation and to move forward with our lives, taking comfort in the love that resides in the heart of our Spirits.

With Light and Love,

The Gift of You

Beautiful SunflowerThe major theme that emerged this week had to do with how hard we are on ourselves and how we need to take time out to appreciate who we are and all of the accomplishments that we have achieved so far during our time here on Earth. It takes a conscious effort to turn your thought patterns around because negative thinking can become a habit. It pushes its way into our lives every day, but we can choose to deflect it and even step beyond the clouds that hover in order to see the light of our own souls.

A great way to start this shift in consciousness is to write a list about all of your accomplishments in this life, as well as all of your positive attributes. Sit in a quiet spot, place your hands over your heart, and take a deep breath in and exhale out. As you exhale, tell your ego to stop the mind-chatter. Dismiss all of your everyday concerns and focus on you and your heart. If you need help focusing, ask your Angels for assistance. They will be delighted to help you with this task.

Breathe deeply at least three times, then start thinking about you and your positive accomplishments, both planned and unplanned. Think about what you have done in your life and the kindnesses you have extended, as well as the moments that made you feel good about yourself. Write them on your list. Be honest. This list is for you, not anyone else. Keep the entire list positive. If any negative thoughts intrude, push the mind chatter of the ego away and get back to your list. Once you get going, I think you will be amazed at what your list reveals.

Whenever negativity intrudes or you are feeling particularly blue, pull out your list to remind yourself of how wonderful your life really has been. Keep the list growing by adding your accomplishments, big and small, as well as positive life-altering events and moments that have brought you joy and happiness. The list will keep growing as your soul evolves.

Even though we are focusing on the positive, it is important to know that adversity and negativity does serve its purpose. It may have even led to some of the more important and happy times in your life by clearing away that which is no long useful or by pushing you to go beyond your perceived limits to help you achieve your dreams.

Without darkness, there would be no light. The problem comes in when we let it rule our lives and thoughts, making it seem as if negative experiences are the expected norm in our lives. They are not. All experiences can be learned from and utilized for good. By making a list of your accomplishments and positive attributes, you are giving yourself the opportunity to see and appreciate all of your life experiences and the gift of you.

Blessings to all of you!

With Light and Love,
Karen
