Choice Is Our Superpower

“I cried because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet.” Helen Keller

There have been many times in life when I felt that no one understood the hardships I was facing. It seemed that when I was at a low point I could not move beyond it to look for a blue sky. It was all that consumed me. It didn’t matter that there were others hurting as well. I didn’t want to hear it. Today I listen to so many that are in that same place I was in. I listen and observe the process. I hear the words of hurt and confusion and I remember what it was like but the difference is that now I can show empathy for others and not have to feel the pain inside of me because it is gone. You see, something happened and it was no easy lesson. I finally got the fact that I had choices. I could not see that when I was in the midst of my misery. As I was talking to a dear friend today, I expressed that I wished this for everyone on the planet – to finally understand that we all have choices in what we hold onto and what we let go of. In holding in anger, hurt, regret, shame, blame and guilt we are only hurting ourselves. Sometimes we think that hanging on to these things will somehow hurt the ones who treated us badly or did not respect us. It’s like the saying about drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. It just does not work that way. I realized that with the breakup of my last marriage. I thought hanging onto the anger would somehow make him miserable. He could have cared less if I was angry or happy. He moved on and that was all that mattered to him. I could either keep focused on him or I could start to heal by taking care of myself and releasing the pain. I have since expanded that lesson to everything in my life, not just a failed marriage. It's a more peaceful place now inside of me. It was a choice I made and that, my friends, is empowering.

Dear Angels, sometimes we can be hard-headed in getting the important lessons of life. We have the erroneous idea that our misery can somehow be shoved into another person just by our desire for it to be so. How can we come to a better understanding of the healing process inside?

Dear Ones, with this thinking process you are still stuck in the illusion that you are separate from each other. As you look at the fact that you are all connected in the unified field of all that is, you then can begin to understand that there is no “me versus you” but you are one being figuring out the tough lessons. Look at the bigger picture. Learn the lesson that is presented to you, whether that be dishonesty, disrespect, physical or emotional harm, or any of the things that can happen in a relationship. Observe the happenings on a higher level. Know that there are no coincidences and that all relationships are purposeful for you to reach a deeper understanding on the soul level. When you stop the shaming and blaming, you can come to a zero point and allow the healing to take place. That is the true lesson. Now what will you choose?

Dear Angels, I see choice as our superpower. It is my intention and desire to always choose the highest vibrating choice and allow my soul to keep floating above the distractions, keeping sight of that which is for my best and highest good. Thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
