What do we do when bad things happen to us, like an unexpected diagnosis or a broken marriage? We can ask ourselves, ‘how can I be powerful in the face of this problem or trauma’? We have to remember that we are still powerful somewhere deep inside. We have to remember that the Power of God is always surrounding us.
As I am writing this, I have a painful frozen shoulder. It keeps me up at night. What I know about excruciating pain is that the first thing to do is call on God for help. We are not alone. Everyone has had pain at one time or another. No one gets out of this life without pain.
When we are vulnerable, remember that God is available 24/7. God specializes in urgent care. Pain stresses the body. And when the body is under stress the mind can’t think clearly. We need to move forward in our minds to a place of love, touch and connection.
We can dig deep within our inner being and rely on our own courage, strength, and grace, to face something seemingly unbearable. Painful and traumatic experiences offer us an opportunity to learn to empower ourselves and to become more compassionate and resilient. The great French artist, Cezanne painted many masterpieces throughout his pain.
We must remember that pain eventually ends and that something inside of us, from the moment we are faced with that seemingly impossible experience, is already working to make us stronger, and healing us. We have power over how we react to the painful times in our lives.
That is the great hero consciousness in us. All we have to do is tap into the power of God. And we will find more love than we could ever take in. When we are vulnerable and we look for help, we often find unexpected angels everywhere.
Visualize the desired outcome even though we can’t see our way out of this pain yet. Believe in a Higher Power more than ever before, knowing that we can heal from this pain, no matter how long it has been going on. Start seeing the gifts in whatever you are going through. One fine spring day you will be able to pass the pearls of your hard-earned wisdom onto others.
- Visualize yourself as whole, happy, and having a Higher Power flow in and through you. See it, feel it, tap into it.
- Believe with your whole heart that you can heal.
- Know that you will get through this time in your life, and when you do, you will share your wisdom and compassion with others.
I believe in the hero in you. Love heals. Open your heart to that love and let it pour in.
