Trust Your Soul

Trust Your SoulThere are times when we get stuck in our own heads with negative, self-defeating thoughts that conjure up feelings of hopelessness and despair. It is at these times that it may feel as though the universe is against us and all of our plans and dreams. Even though this is not the case, the persistence of these thoughts may block out any acknowledgement of positive accomplishments and beliefs. Having faith in the future, in God, and in others may seem next to impossible. It is at times like these when we need to trust our souls.

Wealth of Information

Our souls carry a wealth of information about the numerous lives we have lived in the past, blueprints for our current lifetime, and future plans for our existence beyond this life on earth. It is not a story of despair and endless pain, but one of triumph, divine design, and blessings yet to come. Each experience we have is manufactured to encourage growth on the soul level. The subsequent expansion of knowledge helps us take the next steps forward, enables us to use our experiences to help others, and builds within us a spiritual strength and fortitude to counteract the negativity that attempts to block our faith in that which cannot be seen but nevertheless exists.

The Battle Within

During our low times, it may seem as though the battle between light and darkness is a never-ending epic fight. In essence, though, we can reduce it to minor skirmishes by reminding ourselves of the larger picture, searching for the positive in trying circumstances, and surrounding ourselves with loving people who we can count on to guide us out of the darkness with sage advice, a willing ear, and a comforting shoulder to cry on. The relationships we build need to be reciprocal. Meaning we, too, must be willing to assist others during their times of need. Establishing relationships with a healthy balance of giving and receiving encourages trust, which increases the sharing of love and reduces the impact of stressful situations.

Learning How to Let Go and Let God

Another way to release the hold negative thoughts can have on us is to learn how to let go of the internal struggle and trust that the circumstances we face are of greater importance than what appears on the surface. Even though events might not turn out the way we would have preferred, they will serve as divinely important lessons for our souls, and that, my friends, is why we are here—to become better souls through all of the experiences in life, including the good, the bad, the joyous, and the sad. Our souls know the life lessons we signed up for, and when we learn how to recognize the benefits of all circumstances, we are working in tandem with God’s ultimate plans for us—which are beautiful and full of light and love.

Just for Today

Just for today, let it be okay that you do not have all of the answers or know what the future holds. Work on trusting in the divine plan imprinted within your soul that has your best interests at heart, and know that change ushers in growth and allows for the manifestation of your most heartfelt desires.

Knowing You’re Not Alone on Your Journey Through Life

Looking Toward HeavenHave you ever felt as though you are all alone in this world, facing the challenges of life? I have felt that in my lifetime, especially when I was going through a particularly tough time. It felt as though there was no one around who understood what I was going through or who could be there for me to listen or to provide comfort. I have learned that throughout my trials and tribulations, I have never truly been alone…and neither are you. You have a support system in Heaven that comes from the Creator, the Angels, your Spirit Guides, Past Spiritual Masters, and deceased loved ones. They are there for you. They see your struggles and worries. They hear your prayers. They feel your pain and want to ease it for you. They also share your joy and happiness. In essence, they are there for you in good times and in bad.

You can reach out to your heavenly support system at any time through prayer in thought, said out loud, or in writing. Ask them for help with the situation at hand. They hear you and will do what they can to answer your prayers, as long are they are in accordance with your soul plan and greater good. If what you are praying for will ultimately cause you greater sadness and pain, or send you down a path that would do more harm than good, your heavenly support team will do their best to guide you to better opportunities that meet your true needs and desires. For example, if you are praying for the return of a lost love and that person doesn’t return right away, it may seem as though your prayers weren’t heard or answered…but they have, just not in the way that you may think.

Sometimes it takes time for prayers to be answered. The timing is not based on what we think is best, but on the perfect timing for the evolution of our souls. Sometimes, too, we may not get what we asked for because there is something better coming along for us. Even though we do not always recognize the help that is materializing from our heavenly team, we can help ourselves by having patience and an open mind about how our prayers will be answered. With the situation involving a lost love, God and the Angels know that what you are really asking for is someone who will love and appreciate you for who you are. That person may or may not be ready to do that at the time of your prayer and/or there may be lessons that each of you still need to learn before progress can be made. It can also be that you were only meant to be together to learn particular lessons and now you need to move on. Or, the timing may be perfect for your souls to reunite and they will return to you. We can assist in the answering of our prayers by being mindful about our actions and looking at our experiences to see what lessons we need to learn from them. By taking responsibility for ourselves in this way, we are actively playing an important role in our soul’s evolutional process.

Keep in mind that our support team in Heaven sees and knows much more than we do here on Earth. They know everything about us and what would be best for the evolution of our soul. Therefore, when you ask for help know that they are working on your behalf and that they send you their love. They are always there for you when you need them…all you have to do is reach out with your thoughts and prayers, knowing that your heart’s desires have been heard and will be answered with the perfect timing that is guided by your support team in Heaven. In the meantime, find your center, be at peace with yourself, and know that you are not alone on your journey through this lifetime.
