Surviving Life’s Storms

Topics: , ,

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...

  • Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo!

    I used to sing this and dance to it when I was four years old. My father had given me the most wondrous magic wand made from cardboard and wrapped in aluminum foil. It sparkled like a star! I believed in magic – my wand and my paintbrush transported me to the Invisible World. I lived then, and still live now, with wonder and excitement. Life for me has been a magical journey.

    I have learned in my life that with every step we take, every thought we have, we are nourishing the shadows – or nourishing the Light.

    We have the power to create a Life of Joy, and at some point in our lives, we all deal with loss. I’ve dealt with multiple deaths, the tragic ending of a loving relationship, losing my health, suffering pain, disappointment, I had to learn to forgive violence, judgment and hatred…many times I felt stunned and in despair, I felt through sometimes that I couldn’t survive some of life’s storms. I felt weak and destroyed. I had lost hope, with feelings of helplessness and exhaustion.

    My Spirit connection was “low” –that’s what I thought at the trial moments of my Life. But years later I’ve come to realize that those were the moments when God was carrying me, where my ego was being cracked and my being was forced to be more humble. I realized that resistance created more pain.

    All stages in life are essential for our renewal. Living through the pain is as important as living the joy. It is how we deal with both, how well we accept life’s tests without resistance, that will help us elevate our consciousness.

    The storms of Life serve as catalysts. With their energy they help us transform everything needed along the road to self-regeneration. They help us change our perception from one based in the physical world to that of the Spiritual world. Learning from them helps us shift from a world of chaos to a world of inner Peace. Those catalysts can lead us to our awakening.

    As in the wondrous process by which a caterpillar morphs into a butterfly, sickness can represent an opportunity for reconstruction, a way to revamp our lives, to re-emerge.

    Though adversity may place heavy strains on us, it is definitively a fundamental obstacle that we must overcome on the path to true self-discovery.

    Remember, “IT IS VALUABLE TO FEEL PAIN. Pain nourishes your courage. It can weaken the ego, strengthen humility, and increase compassion. Pain is a human process that we should not fight against. It is a lesson to let go of all of the attachment that we may have. By living the experience of pain we mature and move forward….”

    Humbly yours,

      So true Jacqueline. I had the same experience years ago. Both my parents, and older sister. So much pain, and being angry at them for dieing. It took a long time to let that go. Once I did, I worked on myself, and became spiritual. I am moving forward in my life today. We all have a past, and that’s just what it is, past. I learn about the past, live for today, with the hope of tomorrow. That keeps me in the moment. Thank you for the inspirational hardship, and solution.
      Lots of love

      Greetings all

      The effect of a memory , has a pensive empaphy .

      When wee look bach , with sadness , at what started off happy .

      Some may claim , that enlightenment , is a clever human being .

      But forget , the dimension , that first formed , thisconscious dream .

      Most may think , i`m deluded , yet , quiet natural common sense .

      Is a compassionate , thought world thinking , that daze solves , nurtured intelligence .

      An airth very real , aware yes , will appear when we`re not here .

      Without matter interference , happy returns , nuclear life sphere .

      I think Jacqueline is a blessing to all that know her….personally or through her writings and/or art.
      A modest soul who has shared her wisdom with me. Just recently I got her book & when I randomly opened it to read a passage to my students, I landed on the exact chapter of the topic in this article – ” Surviving Life’s Storms”… a must read in full.
      Jacqueline’s wisdom & depth are contagious.
