In the channeled 33 Lessons from Sara Wiseman, Spirit tells us “The Purpose of Life is Soul Growth.” This is often the path less travelled, because doing the work is painful. It requires looking at our shadow side, it requires being honest with ourself and often requires change on some level.
Trials may have led to the search for spiritual growth and so it follows that such trials may need to be revisited, re-examined, and the learning they brought integrated.
Carl Jung stated – “knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darkness of other people. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of Light but by making the darkness conscious.”
In knowing our own darkness we can be compassionate for others who may have wronged us. I’m not suggesting condoning behaviour or remaining in relationship, I’m suggesting we’re better able to understand the stage of growth of another and let it go. Energy follows thought and if we’re thinking of how another wronged us we’re not taking care of ourselves.
Many of us have blocked heart chakras due to past experiences, and this may have occurred as a defence mechanism. However, eventually there may be an effect on the physical body as well as our relationships with others. In defence mode we may not be actively nursing old hurts, but neither are we melting into them enough to work through their pain and release.
The journey to soul growth is not for the faint hearted. It takes courage. It may or may not entail some type of healing or therapy along the way. I’m all for taking charge of self directed emotional wellness too, and Dr Edward Bach who brought us the Bach remedy system wanted us to be “Captain of our own ship.” In combination Bach Remedies are thought to cover any emotional situation. Essential oils can also be used for emotional wellbeing support.
While imagining figures of Light alone may not move us forward, Spirit wants to support you on the journey. They want you to ask for help and to hand things over when things get too big for you to deal with. If you’d like some help with your spiritual connection both Bach and essential oils can assist there too. I’m not talking about a psychic awakening here, I’m referring to heart opening.
