Todays blog is for those that are stuck. You have not blossomed yet, but the pain is becoming more than you can bear. I am going to shock you today, because I am going to say pain is good. Pain facilitates change, a change that needs to occur to produce the true happiness you desire and deserve.
Here are a few examples of how pain facilitated me into my happy, fulfilled life:
-Staying in my marriage, I felt like my spirit was dying. I began to withdraw, spending hours in my room to escape. The emotional pain of my marriage became more than I could bear, feeling unvalued, disrespected, and dismissed, I finally gained the courage to leave. I was not meant to hide. My spirit has been soaring day by day ever since.
-My son was conflicted and confused from our divorce. His words, energy, and behavior toward me was brutal. It was a torture to spend time with him for both of us. The solution was to let him go. Letting him go actually brought him back to me, and it did not take long. Standing up for me, magically created a change in him. I share in a previous blog how I also sent him belief energy rather than worry energy. He felt it, because he soon wanted to spend time with me, his heart softened and so did his words and behavior.
-I was working 10 hour days. I was exhausted. I did not have a life outside of work. My heart began palpitating and racing. It was scary, affecting my sleep and peace in general. If I kept going like that, I would of had a nervous breakdown. Distraught by this pain, I changed my life. I quit my job to work independently. I created a lifestyle that was balanced. I let my assistant go and took one client at a time, making each interaction not only creatively satisfying, but socially enlightening. My clients love it, and I love it. I no longer am stressed. I enjoy each day. I take time to breathe and eat and think. I have an exciting life outside of my work that fuels my other passions because I am not overworked and tired.
I take notice of pain much more quickly now. I do not like it. I make the changes needed to bring me back to my peace and joy sooner. We do not have to stay in pain. As I was listening to “The Four Agreements,” via audio book lately, I was reminded of the truth behind abuse. Don Miguel Ruiz explains how we use others to abuse us because it is what we feel we deserve. I have gained enough self worth that I do not allow myself to be abused or to remain in pain anymore. Staying in an abusive relationship or in pain is really self abuse.
We are all beautiful creatures, designed to bless ourselves and others with the unique gifts given to each of us. Let’s believe we are worthy enough to not live in pain so we can do what we were meant to do here, with pleasure and joy.
