Souls Journey By Rev. Janice Chrysler
Do you wonder where you are going in your life?
Or do you ask yourself what is my purpose here right now? It is not uncommon to have these questions pop into our minds from time to time. Sometimes these thoughts are only there for a brief moment like a soft summer’s breeze passing through. Then there are those times when our search for our purpose seems to weigh heavy on our consciousness almost consuming our every thought and breathe. Perhaps this is our Higher Self seeking and prompting us to explore our present situation and begin discovering our Soul’s Journey.
What if where we are is exactly where we are meant to be at this moment in time? What if we didn’t need to know or understand every step of the way in order to fulfill our destiny? Could it be that all that is expected of us is to take one step at a time and in this way we discover who we are and what we are meant to do? Too often we can get caught up in the how, why or why not of the situation and lose sight of our purpose. We forget that our reality is created within us and what we see around us is unique to our soul’s growth. By accepting that we are doing the best we can at this moment in time and making the most of each day we will soon find our way.
Once we are sure of our purpose we will then be busy attempting to find ways to make it happen! By letting go of limitations on how things should go we would be open to receive all the countless opportunities that are presented to us. Many lessons in patience, compassion and understanding as well as self-acceptance and self-love are learned in this part of our journey. By letting go of all doubt in the endless possibilities that are before us and freeing our heart of past negative emotions and future worries we are then able to allow pure potentiality to be exposed and take form. It is about having faith in those things we cannot see or fully understand but rather believing that our intuition and spiritual connection to the Divine will guide us where we are to go. Believing we are here for a reason at this moment in time and trusting the Divine will give us the directions we need when we need them will bring us through every treacherous passage.
There will be choices to make along every step. There will be times that we choose a less traveled path and in doing so may either come to learn many personal and powerful lessons for our own evolution or we will be the pioneers who open up a whole new trail for others to follow. There will be times when we travel with others for either a long time or short trip. Many times we will feel we are alone on this journey, which can send us on a seemingly spiral decent into the Darkness of the Soul. It is during those times that we find in the stillness of mediation and contemplation the strength and wisdom to continue along our path. This journey will have many ups and downs, twists and turns. Each one a new adventure to be explored and remembered. Some will bring us pleasure and some will bring us pain but all of them will help us to become more spiritually enlightened if we allow the Divine’s unconditional love to work through us. This love is always within and around us. We only need to find the stillness in our heart centre and allow it to flow without effort through every cell of our being to awaken our soul’s journey.
