Is Suffering Necessary To Live An Abundant, Healthy and Purposeful Life?

Is suffering really necessary? Yes and no. If you have not suffered as you have, there would be no depth to you as a human being, no humility, no compassion. You would not be reading this now. Suffering cracks open the shell of ego, and then comes a point when it has served its purpose. Suffering is necessary until you realize it is unnecessary. ~ Eckhart Tolle

The last several weeks have been have been very intense on all levels that have revealed awareness related to my health that I was only now ready to see, feel and understand.

There is a Grace to the journey that brings up things when we are strong enough even when we do not know that we are. I have been in awe of my capacity to hold strong and go the distance through these difficult periods with the loving support and gifts of my human and spiritual teams.

Years ago I read a quote that, “If your path is difficult, it is because of your higher calling.” My first thought was, “What the hell did I sign up for!!” And I feel at the core of my being that I will continue to be prepared for each next step even when I don’t see it or know how as my path and purpose expands.

Trust, faith, tons of breathing and surrender – to get out of your own way to allow the energy to flow without resistance. Easier said than done for us humans! The surrender piece is tricky. You can feel you have let go completely and the resistance is still there.

The ego freaks and tries to control, manage, and direct whatever is happening to push, get rid of or shut down whatever feels too scary or uncomfortable. This only makes the reaction more intense and full of suffering. And every experience serves a purpose so nothing is ever wasted!

With a “1” year of new beginnings, many of us taking quantum leaps in our lives and work have been working at deeper levels of emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual and energy clearing than ever before. 

While the awareness alone or working with another healer may be sufficient to let go of what is ready to be released, there are times when we must walk through the experience with our arms wide open with Love, standing strong, shaking, and stumbling. What is on the other side is power, freedom, calm and peace.

I am grateful I know how to walk this path and learning ways to experience more ease and Grace with each downward spiral that leads to raising the spirit – opening greater doorways to abundant wealth in every form, vibrant health and deep purpose.

Last, self-care and rest is critical. Our bodies are being up-leveled and recalibrated as we clear and realign with these higher vibration during the earth’s ascension  into higher energies of Love and Light.

Remember to take the space you need before your body screams at you. Self-care is a gift of self-love.

You cannot show up when you are an empty vessel or have the energy to walk though these expansion periods with strength. The more tired we are the more susceptible to create drama and suffering as well as stress the body that can affect your health!

Have a great weekend!

One Love,
