Life is a series of lessons. Every day as we live and breathe, a higher power is orchestrating lessons to walk through, overcome and learn from.
You would think I trusted with my whole being, but I am human and my ego sometimes rises up and plays tricks with me. It rears its ugly head and tests me.
Do you trust? How is your trust?
A course in miracles says " I trust my brother who is one with me". Today I got an email from my mentor Lisa Natoli, of the "Teachers of God organization" who teaches me ACIM. She asked me those questions above. I found it very timely. Two weeks ago my husband had a skin growth removed from his leg. For all this time I have walked through, trust and fear. I went back and forth. I was making myself crazy with fear. It is one of my old patterns. I actually even fell yesterday because I was so off balance. I got it big U! So I read her email and read these words.
Trust and faith go hand in hand. When things seem bad and they sometimes will, when you feel overwhelmed and you sometimes will, when you feel angry and you sometimes will, it is all based on fear. ACIM teaches that this would be the separation from God. You are trying to control a situation on your own. The opposite of fear = trust. Trust is faith in God. Faith in Love. Love is the supreme energy. Love is the basis of all there is. I somehow allowed my ego to run me. I forgot the truth that no matter what God, Universe, Source, Creator has my back and that no matter the outcome I, and my family, would be ok.
I know why I lost some trust, not feeling good, experiencing a health crisis made me weary and not have faith. God had to bring this lesson so that I could teach, Faith and TRUST. ACIM teaches Heaven is a decision I must make. Even though I spent time with God each day, I was trying to control the situation. For a moment I forgot the truth. I became separate from my God. So now I remember this:
1. We have deep wisdom and knowing energy and light within us. This is our Christ consciousness and our Christ light in us. We are a part of God. God is a part of us. We are all one!!
2. I forgot to surrender and trust God and my angels that everything would be ok.
3. Everything that is always happening is for our highest good according to God's plan for our life.
4. Sometimes not getting what we want and things going our way is a gift.
The bottom line is this, when we trust ourselves and trust in GOD.. all really is well all the time.
A good affirmation to say over and over again is this:
I trust the Universe to support me always and in all ways!!!
There are five main lessons of earth school and they are
Today I offer these words of comfort.
Grace is when God gives us good things that we may not deserve.
Mercy is when he spares us from what we deserve.
Blessings are when he is generous with both.
Truly, we can never run out of reasons to thank Him.
God is good all the time!!! Amen.
I had a valuable lesson these two weeks. I had to go through this intensely and really have my world shaken up. I had to walk through the pain of the expansion, realizing that is where more light entered me. I am light. I am love. I am forgiven. I am human. I am an amazing soul learning lessons so that then I can teach. How blessed am I?? We all are. And I am happy to say Paulo is healthy and we are so happy. I love my life. I love my husband. I love my family and I love the lessons. Grace and ease during the expansion (my word for 2017). ahhh.. and breathing...
Peace, Love and angel blessings to all of you.. and a lot of TRUST.
I love you all.
