There are periods during our lives that dismantle, demolish and tear apart any sense of identity we previously held. These periods challenge our greater characteristics and qualities to transpire. But we are given a choice, for at times when we experience conflict, loss, heartbreak or soul shattering events, it can either diminish us and result is us clinging to the lower vibration elements of the human psyche and life, or it will allow us to increase our strength, love and faith to overcome this period of immense struggle. There are choices we make during these challenging periods. They are choices we may not be able to make immediately but we define during this phase of our existence, who we want to become for the rest of our lives.
When we chose to overcome these hurdles and move towards that which resonates with our soul, we will be faced with two challenges. Raising our vibrations to remain in a state that encourages spiritual and all round growth, and raising our vibrations to remain unaffected by those who have chosen a diverging path, and may attempt to sidetrack us from our own. There are those who have chosen to go down the road of the ego and linger in depression, dependence, and under-functioning. These souls will always feel threatened by another’s strength, determination, and aliveness and commonly, these people’s means of boosting their ego up, will be by attempting to dampen one’s joy or destroy it entirely as theirs was dampened down or destroyed, and it gives them a sense of empowerment to inflict the same pain onto others, that has been inflicted onto them. Did you ever notice how those that act from the soul, only care for making everything brighter and beautiful around them, and influencing others to do the same. Those who operate from the ego will be primarily concerned with their own needs alone in life, and react discouragingly, abhorrently or in opposition towards those that are happily and loudly expressing themselves and living their truth.
This is the difference between strength and weakness. there are those that make a conscious decision to play the victim and never move forward with purpose, because it is easier to run and hide from the responsibility of living an authentic and powerful life, and it takes courage to become someone that others are afraid to become, and therefore it angers them in seeing somebody else achieve such a demanding yet rewarding feat. At the back of our minds, we recognize that we are making the choice to avoid developing into a greater version of ourselves. We do recognize the excuses we make to relieve ourselves of the responsibility of progressing, but we also recognize the tremendous sacrifice, determination and darkness we may endure to get there. And most of us will chose to remain small, because then we may avoid that which makes us uncomfortable and that which we must overcome. We may avoid it but it also causes a deep well of emptiness and regret in us, in making this choice. And it causes envy towards those who have chosen to overcome that which we have not, living as the most powerful version of themselves without diminishing or hiding from the world.
When we chose to live an authentic life, in means dealing with that which holds us prisoner to our development. Those things consist of addictions, to alcohol, sex, depending on others too much, work, and so on. These things also consist of unhealthy habits, destructive relationships, negative mental patterns, a disempowering environment, the mundane and superficial, and abuse towards one’s physical and emotional health. It is once we begin to acknowledge and treat these reactions that we stop delaying our spiritual and emotional development and begin to cut ties with these low vibration aspects.
When we chose to march through past trauma inflicted on us by parents, siblings, partners and others, and recognize that love, gratitude, beauty, wholeness, strength, determination, and happiness are a choice, we will stop diminishing our spiritual light and start removing the elements that prevent us from creating a life of harmony and wholeness. And with everyday we decide which choices we make that lead us towards that strength, and we decide how conscious we become to the elements of our lives that are preventing us from making choices of strength. We chose which extreme we swing towards. Some of us become healers in this world, and some of us become destroyers. destroyers of ourselves and others. and having experienced both to a thorough extreme, i know now that i will always in spite of everything i have lost, choose love over fear, compassion over blame, faith over pessimism and courage over doubt. It is purely our choice as to whether we heighten our vibrations, or diminish them and continue to play victim to that which has passed, or emotional reactions that linger.
You may diminish your light in fear of the envy it attracts, but rather than wanting to avoid the insecurities that arise in others from seeing you have what they lack, or gained which they did not strive to, use it to guide. There will be those that are influenced and there will be those that envy. But there will be neither those that envy you, nor those you influence, if you diminish yourself and play it small, for I think this results in our greatest pain. In knowing we could have been, but choosing safety, a hiding place out of harms way from those that didn’t go to the places we did, to become the souls we have. I have too often see those saturated in their own darkness and weakness and therefore resentful and overcome with animosity and hatred towards those of us who chose to invest in finding more of our power and truth. It takes tremendous amounts of courage to not only walk through our own pain and overcome it, but also allow ourselves to be vulnerable and to be seen, even if it disturbs other’s perceptions of life with the rays that shine out of us as we allow the power and influence of our light to surface and explode.
Do not ever lessen yourself because of the fear and inferiorities it evokes in others. They had the chance to become more. They did not take it. You sacrificed everything and became more. Do not waste it. Do not waste that power to create waves.
