Even if you place all your faith in God or whomever you believe and rejoice to, there are just those times when you are tested a tad more than you truly expect or want.
I suppose it is the “why” and “how” questions that we enter into when things don’t quite go according to plan. The “how” and “why” elements immediately shift us into our ego, our human part of our being, especially when we feel it is something we have or haven’t done. It is the immediate mental flagellating or flogging we use to blame ourselves for allowing things to transpire the way they did.
Whereas the letting go element is based on pure faith. Trust you might call it, that sometimes, things happen for a reason. Even if we cannot fully comprehend exactly the mystery or sequence of events around what happened, it is the acceptance and belief that it should have transpired that way. Faith is that unrequited element that no matter how bad things seem to get, that there is a greater plan that we are not privy to…. Yet.
At the point we move from head to heart, we are centred in our vibrational energy, our core soul cellular part of us. This is the component that sometimes moves us in a slightly different direction in order to create some shift or modification that we wouldn’t necessarily invite towards us.
When we start that particular day or period before things start changing and fluctuating, you could say we are at ground zero. It is only when we are flung headlong into the struggles that transpire, that we need to become heart centred, and pull from the spiritual resources within to allow our highest good or God as I call it, to guide and direct us in hope and love.
Our higher self or God element is the part that truly lets go and bonds with the divine vibration so we can be lifted up, removing the fears and doubts that do reside within. It is certainly not relinquishing responsibility, it is the calm that enters inside our energy being in peace and reassurance. Some call it the “ah ha” moment. It is that magical part of us, that sudden realization, that we just feel or sense that everything is going to be okay.
Our body, mind and soul have connected in completeness, so we become whole. That uplifting feeling that the burdens and troubles are being handled, and it is not for us to sweat about it, but to move forward in acceptance and enchantment.
The incredible part about any journey is the story behind it. For me, writing any article or blog is about the preparation on a particular subject. Sometimes when I struggle with the context or wording and direction I reach up to spirit for guidance. Just so you know, my week, up to this point had been going extremely well, so how could I write about faith and letting go in an empowering way. This is the word of caution I offer to you, be careful what you wish for……
Just this week I was unexpectedly cast into two situations of such testing. Nothing truly major, but for me, when the first occurrence happened, I momentarily stepped into “how” and “why”. Initially, my Facebook pages had been disabled, or removed by the Facebook Gods so I was caught up momentarily in paranoia and "why me". More because I am not a tech savvy type of gal, so anything that happens in this genre is always a challenge.
The second was more on a personal level. For anyone who knows me, I am not a vain person, and although image is important, it isn’t paramount. But I do enjoy having long hair. I suppose this stems back to when I was younger and had the basic pudding basin cut. So as I got older I allowed my hair to grow and I suppose I have gotten used to it being that way. But with hair it needs professional attention, so I called my hairdresser and went in for a basic trim, asking her to take it to shoulder length, cutting away all the dead stuff.
It was a great morning, the sun was shining for the first time in a while, and as we chatted about my work and her work she started cutting away at my hair. I was totally unaware that one side was quite a lot shorter than the other until her scissors took off the last hairs on my right side. Somehow, to her dismay and disbelief, she had cut off more than either of us wanted. I wasn’t in total shock, until I realized that the only way to rectify this problem was to chop off the long side to align with the much shorter side. After all, she could hardly glue it back together again....
I certainly didn’t want to open up the conversation on “why” and “how” which is what my hairdresser kept doing while apologizing. I reassured her that it was fine, and left endeavoring to accept that perhaps there was a bigger force at work behind all this. After all the summer was just arriving, so perhaps having shorter hair was the way to go? It was totally pointless going into the punishment mentality, because I am positive it wasn’t God’s will.
Maybe it was my spirit guides and angels way of giving me these experiences so I could fully appreciate how to write this article in a more divinely understanding way.
I truly believe so. And for me, I know that having to change my pages to align them with Facebook protocol will benefit me in a far greater way… and eventually my hair will grow back.
I suppose ultimately it is about letting go and letting God take up the slack on my behalf.
