I’ve always been a spiritual being. You know, “Pisces” this and “Aquarius” that. As a child my intuition was so strong that I could literally predict the future before it happened. It wasn’t 100% of the time, but it was pretty often. I had mental pictures that would pop into my head and then it literally played out in front me within a few days. When I was a pre-teen I would have dreams at night and they would actually happen in my waking hours the very next day. This happened about 30 or 40 times within a year. It was SO SURREAL. I couldn’t explain it.
Everything Connects Together
Then I went through some real bad emotional and mental trauma. From that point forward I shut down my intuitive soul. I did anything and everything to survive because I was so traumatized by what had happened. My innocence was stolen. My youth was taken from me. I was fast-forwarded into adult stress and worry despite being 3 years away from legally being considered an adult.
Now I understand it all so much better.
While we are quick to claim that the Universe isn’t on our side because we experience something terrible in life, I realize now as an adult that if it wasn’t for the trauma I had experienced I wouldn’t be WHO I AM today. Does this mean I want to go back and re-live it all again? HELL NO! I wish it upon no one. However, I am thankful for the lessons I had learned.
I never want to spend the rest of my life in anger, resentment, cynic, and anything else that keeps me feeling stuck in life.
Everything works together in this Universe. Everything happens FOR you. If it wasn’t for my past trauma, I wouldn’t have realized my soul purpose in this world. If it wasn’t for my past trauma, I wouldn’t have been able to tap into my old-soul wisdom as intricately as I do now in the present. If it wasn’t for my past trauma, I wouldn’t have been able to help THOUSANDS of souls all around this world every single day.
And this right here, right now, IS my purpose, my passion, my true soul’s calling.
I truly feel everything connects TOGETHER:
Science AND faith.
My favorite subject growing up was ALWAYS science. I wanted to be an astronaut or teach science while growing up. And I have always been spiritual; I do believe everything exists for a reason. There is no “right” or “wrong” when it comes to how you CHOOSE to live your life. If it works for you, then it works!
I AM Here To Remind You of Your Power
You get a choice- always. You get to choose how you want to live your life. While life has events and circumstances that ARE out of our control sometimes, try to approach it in a way of curiosity. What is the Universe teaching us? What is the Universe trying to convey to us about ourselves as individuals and as a humanity? What are the reasons and the purpose on a grander scale? And in the long-run?
Everything is temporary, even our own thoughts and feelings. What you focus on gives power to your mindset beliefs. And your mindset beliefs create your physical reality because the neural signals in your brain emit POWERFUL vibrations of matter within the Universe.
The Universe IS responding to you, FOR you.
You Get a Choice: React, Or Respond
A reaction is an immediate action to an external stimuli. Reaction is usually SO immediate that there isn’t a processing of evidence before it takes place with regards to a mental state. It’s just so instantaneous that it often has a mental counter-action, almost like the opposite action.
A response, on the other hand, is usually through a processing of evidence beforehand to an external stimuli. A mental response is usually given after one has time to decide on their course of action. It’s a response because it’s a choice of action through mental processing, whether that choice is of supportive or unsupportive action.
Of course, these are my interpretations of these two nouns. You get to CHOOSE how you want to interpret them! Just like you get to CHOOSE how you want to live your life in the present and going forward. You get to CHOOSE how you want to live by your soul’s purpose, or if you want to be in tune with your soul at all. We all have free-will, and this is so powerful because we get to CHOOSE how we want to RESPOND to anything and everything in life.
How do you make your choices when it comes to following your soul’s calling? Are you reacting or responding? Are you following your fears, or are you following your passions? Are you loving yourself and empowering yourself, or are you ignoring your POWERFUL CONNECTION with your soul (thus, the Universe)? Everything works together SIMULTANEOUSLY.
