Why The Lessons?

Do you ever wish for a lesson-free month? Just one month where everything goes smoothly. You’re not putting out fires at work, struggling with health or finances, having relationship conflicts. I know I do, even though I know better. I get it – struggle isn’t easy.

When we are born we choose the type of life we want and the lessons we want to learn. People say to me “why would I choose this for myself?” The answer I give is that a life on earth offers the greatest opportunities for growth. So the more advanced we become, we choose lives that are going to challenge us and help us progress faster through our spiritual journey.

I realised the other day that although plenty of really positive things have happened for me this year, there have also been some really negative challenges as well. This is the balance of life. We have to experience both sides. The best way to get through those challenging times is to look for the lesson and learn from it. I know it’s hard when things aren’t going to plan to remain positive and focused, but you just need to remember that everything that happens to us is part of a plan. We just can’t see the whole picture yet.

You know how you look at your life sometimes and think about how you overcame some stressful situation which was devastating at the time, but now seems almost like a blessing because it created a different mindset or led you down an unexpected and more fulfilling path. There are no accidents. Embrace the bad times and be grateful for the good times. That’s all you can do.

Don’t put up a fight. Accept the challenges and overcome them. You know they won’t be so bad once they’re over, so use the opportunity to have an experience that will teach you something valuable or make you a better person. If you learn the lesson they are there to teach, then you won’t have to continue going through these problems. If you ignore the learnings, unfortunately you will get more of the same until you change something.

Remember, all the answers are within, so if you really want to understand why something is happening to you, go inside, access your higher self and have a deep and meaningful conversation. You’ll be surprised at what you could find out. And you’ll realise that you should never give up because you’re not given something to overcome that you’re not ready for.

Are You Finding Life A Challenge?

Do you have a person or a situation in your life that constantly challenges you? No matter how hard you try to deal with it, just when you think it’s all under control and you have a positive outlook, something else happens to bring you right back down again? This is the ebb and flow of life. These people and situations are there to teach lessons, but sometimes don’t you just wish you could have a lesson-free month? I know I do.

The reality is that life can’t be positive all the time. If every day was perfect we would lose sight of what that represents. The only reason we appreciate good days is because we compare them to the bad days, which makes them so much sweeter. The key is to be grateful for every experience, good or bad, because they are all happening for a reason. They are all designed to help us learn and grow.

As part of the growth process we need to be mindful of the fact that we could be unconsciously sabotaging our happiness because a past life experience is at the root of our problem. Past life regression really does give valuable insight into why we are the way we are. Some people are a little afraid of what they might find when they start delving into the past. However, the unconscious mind is protective and will only show you what you need to learn at a particular time. Otherwise, you would just remember every past life and recognise every person you have ever met – the loved ones and the ones who have wronged you. We don’t need to know all of that information. We only need to discover the parts that affect our future growth.  Perhaps these are the parts that we have become stuck with because we never moved on.

We don’t remember every single thing we’ve experienced even in this lifetime. We only retain the parts that are significant to our learning. We know that we have had many experiences as we’ve grown and have learned from them, without having to remember every event. It’s the same with past lives. So don’t be afraid to allow your mind to open up to the information that is required to help you grow because it’s valuable and potentially vital to your future success.

For example, it is easier to deal with relationships issues when you understand that these are ongoing over many lifetimes. Perhaps that over-protective parent may not seem quite so annoying once you know that in a past life they had witnessed your death and not been able to prevent it. Or it explains why you can have an intense, almost irrational attraction to someone you barely know. You could find out why you dislike whole races or cultures of people or why when you travel, you know exactly where to go in places you have never visited before. The possibilities and benefits are endless.

We are all part of a giant universal school with every lifetime being a different grade. We work our way up from kindergarten and eventually reach university where we graduate from the school of life – some people call this “enlightenment”.  

If you are fearful of what you might find, remember you don’t have to experience pain or trauma again. You’ve done that already. You only need to recognise the events and the lessons which can very effectively allow physical, emotional and psychological healing. This allows you to move on and achieve your highest goals and live your happiest life. Most people are curious and fascinated in what they discover during a regression. Many have life-changing epiphanies that allow them to realise their true purpose this time around. Others leave with a new-found respect for their family, friends and even those who they are not so fond of. Everyone has a purpose and I believe this is one of the most effective methods of finding out what that is.

I am looking forward to sharing future blog posts on this subject with you to allow more education on this process and to dispel fears that are holding you back from discovering your true inner self.
