This is the dawn of a New Era; a new beginning. Phew! What a roller coaster ride the past three months have been. I knew something was brewing in the background of my soul development. It has all been for the good as I have come out of it all intact. No broken bones.
What I’m talking about are the events of the past 3 months. Everything in my life turned upside down, inside out and at first I had some apprehension about why all this was happening. First it was the change of job from what everyone would have thought was a dream job with a 6-figure salary to what could have been thought of as climbing down the ladder. I did it anyway because my happiness mattered and I could feel a big tug in my belly as I was called upon to make a choice within a short space of time.
Then the rude awakening which awaited me as I met with so much resistance from my former boss so much that I felt like I was going to fail but hell no, I stood my ground. My inner guidance assured me that this was just but a temporary hurdle, so I stuck it out and worked my way through what could be a permanent solution to this problem. I have decided to stay away as much as possible and to make myself comfortable in my home office. I think it’s all beginning to make sense as some things that we see as challenges are actually tests that we have to pass through to get to our intended destination.
I bought myself a new car in the process as I felt I deserved it but the resulting financial downturn that followed was something I never bargained for. If it were not for some human angels, I do not know how I was going to go through this difficult period. It is not a joyful experience to go to bed having the last thoughts lingering over one’s financial status and wandering when all this will end .But my inner guidance strengthened me and pushed me to try out various ways of making the dollar stretch and cover the necessary expenses. In all this one has to maintain a cool face. Thank God I now see light at the end of the tunnel and seriously believe that the season is over. Abundance, here I come!
The biggest takeaways from these past 3 months are:
· I have to follow my heart even in the face of criticism.
· I have to live with gratitude for each day that I manage to go through and come out alive and with another chance.
· I have to remain centered in my being and knowing who I am and my relationship with the universe.
· Abundance is an abused word which comes to those who earnestly seek it through thick and thin.
· My guides and guardians are alive and always present regardless of what I am going through. I simply need to reach out.
· I can feel that the worst is over and I am going into a new abundant era!
This is a very personal experience which may not happen the same way to others but still brings out the nature of cycles which we have to go through as human beings in order to embrace a higher consciousness of what surrounds us.
