YOU will not grow if you sit
in a beautiful flower garden,
but you will grow if you are sick,
if you are in pain, if you experience losses, and if you do not put your head in the sand, but take the pain and learn to accept it,
not as a curse or a punishment but as a gift to you with a very, very specific purpose.
One of the core concepts the Living in Alignment Model promotes is that all of the conditions, events, issues, problems, experiences, and challenges in life (i.e., circumstances) have the “inherent potential” of providing us with maximum benefit.
I use the term “inherent potential” because you won’t be able to recognize these benefits until you train your mind to get out of the way. Many people have a tendency to place life circumstances into categories of good or bad; right or wrong; positive or negative and reject those they deem to be bad, wrong or negative. If this is the case, you are likely caught up in the impact that these circumstances are having upon you and your life.
What if it is true that our lives are intended to be a series of transformative experiences “?” As you train your mind to focus on the benefits (which I describe as insights, gifts, lessons) the validity of this concept will be revealed.
Examining the impact of how the circumstances occurring in your life is important/ necessary in order to validate the experiences you’re having. However, once this is addressed, you will want to focus on the symbolic interpretation of these circumstance by focusing on the bigger picture view (the big scheme of your life) to see how they are actually serving/ benefitting you.
By being receptive to all of life circumstances, you can become increasingly aware of their significance along with tuning into the workings of Source energy in your life.
Examining the circumstances in your life to determine how they are benefiting
you (such as recognizing solutions in problems, gifts in challenges, and possibilities in conflicts) are skills that the LIA approach provides, please go to my website and check out the LIA Skill Base: www.DarcyClarke.us
