The Broken Paths
Published in Creations Magazine January 2022
I don’t know who needs to read this today, but Spirit was insistent that I write it. So I do, because I am a messenger.
The collective consciousness of the world at this time in history holds the energy of pandemics, grief, failed relationships, vaccine and mask mandates, climate disaster, political and religious divisions, and so much more.
When you suffer from depression, or live alone, or are going through a rough patch in your life for whatever reason, it’s easy to feel helpless, and it’s hard not to fall down a rabbit hole of despair.
That happens because you have become super-focused on what’s wrong. You no longer see the tiny blessings happening to you. You don’t recognize the opportunities opening up around you. You are trying to hang onto something that failed. Something that’s gone.
As long as you are breathing, nothing is impossible.
It’s only when you quit, that you become stuck.
Spirit says it’s easier to grieve than it is to start over.
I know people will disagree, or won’t quite know how to take that, but I just deliver what I receive. Maybe those who are ready to receive that will understand.
Everything about why we’re here has to do with learning. And every time we fail ourselves we are bound to repeat it. You have to learn a lesson to move forward to the next level of education.
So it is with soul growth as well.
Fear is a fight or flight response to danger, whether it’s emotional or physical. And when we’re challenged by life in a way we can’t control, we often look for that rabbit hole. It’s only sensible to seek shelter. That’s what initially saves us.
But use that time of solace to regroup, Not a full on retreat.
Eventually, we all have to climb out of the hole and move on.
That’s how life works.
