Many of us question ourselves when life brings challenges that impact on the way we feel. I have heard many people criticise themselves for feeling emotions that they perceive to be ‘bad’ or ‘negative.’
This is then followed by a common question which is ‘how can I possibly be spiritual and feel like this?!’
This criticism and questioning heightens our sense of separateness and isolation and we experience sadness as ultimately it takes us away from the sense of expansiveness and connection that spiritual awareness brings. This limits our capacity to live life to the full, away from truly being all that we are and takes us away from the very thing we are searching for spiritually.. unity.
Grace is the key to sustaining our sense of connection, of maintaining the experience of our Light within. Grace is a surrendering and acceptance with Love that what has been brought to us in life is for our own spiritual growth. NOT something to take us away from who we are but something that, if embraced will give us more awareness, more unfoldment, more heart opening.
So the next time you find yourself berating yourself for experiencing difficult feelings, practice being graceful, try doing this by not identifying with the feeling, recognise it is not YOU! Practice humbly accepting what has been brought for you to grow, rather than using it to keep yourself small.
Respond with Love and Grace will follow…
