The Universe is governed by certain laws that are unchangeable. When you work with these laws or principles you are in control of your reality and can manifest miracles. When you work against these laws or try to manipulate them you may feel that everything in your life is difficult and simply does not work. The Universal laws govern how energy moves and they are very simple and once you understand them, you can use them to your benefit.
The first spark of spiritual awareness is hope, for it is hope that keeps humanity moving forward in its quest for peace and joy. No matter how bad things seem, hope is what allows you to rise and face a new day, with the belief that any situation can get better. Many people today have lost hope and live in fear. Their lives have become a series of events of varying degrees of difficulty from which they believe they will never escape. They have become wanderers in their own lives, moving from one experience to the next, blindly accepting what they are faced with and not feeling capable of changing any of it.
Each of our life experiences is a lesson in love. Even if you do not think that many of these experiences are very 'lovely,' loving or lovable, they are all part of the contract that you entered into to bring your soul into greater communion with the Source. Before you can move forward on your journey, you must learn to love each incident, experience, situation and person that participated in your journey. Each person or situation that appears to block your path is not there for you to hate; they are all there to teach you a lesson in love.
If your thoughts were aligned with the mind of God, would you know the secrets of the Universe? Would you have access to all of the world's knowledge, and even beyond? Would you be able to instantly manifest what you wanted, as all spiritual knowledge would be available to you? All of this is true and it does not take a magical formula or special person to align with the mind of God. You are always aligned with the mind of God through your Source connection. What makes you feel different is what is in your own mind, whether you are aligned with the mind of God or with the ego.
What does a spiritual person look like? Are they tall, short, thin, fat? How do they act? Are they happy, sad, pleasant or angry? How do we know if we or anyone is spiritual or not? Are there signs that we can see or special things we can look for? And what is the difference between being spiritual and not spiritual? Is there such a thing?
Our soul’s journey is focused on learning to be in alignment, where our spiritual and material worlds become one, where we live a life of effortless manifestation, filled with joy, unconditional love and abundance. Most of us wonder what that is like, for it may not be the state of our lives at the present moment. We may have issues or problems, we are unhappy, unfulfilled and discontent. Or, if we do manage to create some magical moments of alignment, they do not last long. Is it possible for us to be in alignment all of the time and still be human, living in the material world? Are there sacrifices that we must make to achieve this?
How many times do you try to change circumstances in your life only to find yourself in exactly the same situation or in something that works out exactly the same way. Do you feel like you have wasted your time and energy? This is discouraging for you and can cause you to lose faith as you often think that it is the Universe working against you. It is not. What happens is when you leave one situation without first healing it or understanding all of its dynamics and then go into another one, you simply trade one thing for another.
Everything is the same in the Universe, there is only one life and many different ways of experiencing it. It is your experience of life that determines your everyday reality. And that can be changed, simply through your ability to see past what is going on and to understand its dynamics. But sometimes you need to experience the situation several times before you grasp its lessons or its significance.
Many doors will open for you as step into the Shift energy and raise your vibrations. Some of these are opportunities to move forward on your path, to take on new roles that challenge you to accept your soul purpose. Others are opportunities to make different choices, to assess whether you want to continue on certain paths or to open yourself to new possibilities. The Shift is bringing forth a convergence of karma, a time when all of its lifetimes of karma are being shown to humanity to experience, review and decide whether this is the path that they want to follow. That is why so many of your experiences at this time are so difficult, on an individual and global level-you are not dealing with a singular instance of karma. Each experience now contains all of the karma that you have accumulated across many lifetimes. All you must do is choose which door you want to step into.
It is important to maintain boundaries with others so that they treat you with respect and in appropriate ways. Your boundaries allow others to know what you will accept from them in terms of behavior, language and attitude. But if you continue to attract people who seem to ignore your boundaries, perhaps it is because you have set your outside boundaries but have ignored your internal boundaries. Is it possible that others around you are ignoring your external boundaries and mirroring how you think of yourself?
When you manifest change in your life, asking for abundance, joy, peace and happiness, what is your intention? Is your manifestation about having more than others? If so, then you are manifesting from the ego and not from the heart space. When you manifest from the ego, everything that you ask for is more than you need or based on what others have. If you do not receive it, then you doubt your ability to manifest. But if it comes from the heart space, it is a request that can be supported by the Universe because it is in your Highest Good and that of everyone, everywhere.
