Is it time for another part of yourself to emerge into the light of your purpose? You may not even be aware its within you. But, when it IS time, it will find a way to emerge, and be born into the light. And, its a beautiful thing, whether you think so at the time, or not.
At the time, I had no idea the significance of my experience, but I’m grateful for it. Though it was traumatic, it was miraculous. It was amazing. And, couldn’t have been any other way, or my Purpose wouldn’t be served. Mind if I share a little of it with you in the following article, adapted from its original version published in Luminous Wisdom Sophia, November, 2017?
Follow Your Heart Into the Light of Your Purpose
As I lay in that warm, dark, very cramped, uncomfortable place being repeatedly squashed, I didn’t know what was happening. I didn’t belong there, but I couldn’t leave. Intuitively, I knew I wasn’t facing the right direction. I tried for all I was worth to turn. No luck.
I pleaded, “Please, stop this!!! I feel awful. Mom, can you help me? Please, Mom, help! Why don’t you help me?” Nothing. It was like banging my head repeatedly into a brick wall. I was frustrated, angry, and afraid. This was my first experience of feeling powerless, and unable to move forward despite knowing exactly what I needed to do. The pattern was set. Or, was it?
Suddenly, the space around me expanded. What was happening? Finally!! Someone pulled me into the light as the temperature dropped, and unfamiliar sounds and voices filled my awareness. I cried as my rescuers rushed about tending to their perception of my needs. No one asked me how I felt, or what I needed. They assumed they knew best. But, they were missing SO much!
All Worth It
My birth was my longest 11-1/2 hours, and one of the richest experiences, of my yet-to-be-life. It’s been a key in my own healing process. From it I realized learning begins before birth, and that our birth experience shapes our life patterns and personalities. I also developed a deep appreciation of our coping and adapting mechanisms, having lived with the resulting physical stress and tension for decades. And, I honor the significance of all experiences in my journey for awakening me to the TRUTH of who I AM and aligning me with my Purpose. I cherish this as I celebrate another anniversary of my birth.
No matter how old it is, or how insignificant it may seem, when it’s time for something to surface and awaken you, it will. It’ll get your attention in the best way for you to notice it, bring it to light, and resolve it, just as my birth experience has done.
Just as a lifetime of stress, challenges, and experiences since that day have done for me, so, too, yours are calling to you. Always.
Time to Notice What’s Emerging Into the Light of Your Purpose
Notice what’s asking for your attention, guiding you to ask yourself important questions. How are you feeling? What are you thinking? What’s it showing you? How can you grow from it and resolve it at the root, so its purpose is served? How can you, and the world, be better because of it?
This awakening revealed my next steps for bringing to others such opportunities for health, healing, growth, and awakingn to their Purpose. If I didn’t take them, my heart would break, and I’d be doing a disservice to the Universe. I’d miss my chance to make my difference and feel fulfilled. I’d regret
If its’ stressing, challenging, and/or ailing you, it IS calling you. Tune in. Open your heart to it. Otherwise, you may be missing one of the riches experiences in your life. Could you live with that? What lies within you waiting to be born into the light?
