I wrote an article a few days ago entitled ‘Stay Strong, World Changers’, and I’d like to return to the subject of strength because it’s relevant to my life and my experiences lately.
Life will send things our way that make us want to throw in the towel, and I’ll admit that my hardest times have left me wondering what I should do next or if I should even try to continue. It’s easy to let the pains and burdens of life keep us from being who we are, but their hold over us gets stronger when we keep giving in to them.
We have to look difficulty and negativity in the eye and boldly proclaim that they won’t stop us from shining our light. We have to find our sacred center no matter what difficulties we have to deal with every day, and we can’t expect the world to be strong if we don’t persevere and keep our own strength.
How are we going to change the world if we can’t even get past our own issues? We came here to persevere through all of the hard times we knew we’d have to face, and when the pain piles up and we don’t feel like we can keep going, we have to remember that we aren’t the only ones who suffer.
Everyone around us suffers in one way or another, whether they’re ‘conscious’ or not, and the first step to healing our own issues is recognizing that we aren’t alone in the struggle to stay centered and active in the midst of all of the pain.
Realizing that everyone is struggling in their own way can allow us to see our struggle in a new light, and if we allow ourselves, we can rise up and become a voice of reason through all of the pain, chaos and uncertainty.
It requires us to get past whatever holds us back, but if we can do this, we can emerge into the world as a force for love, compassion, and most importantly, healing. We can lend an ear to the people around us who struggle as much as we do, and we can do it with an open heart and a mind that’s willing to commit to the pursuit of helping others.
We can change the world by first looking deep within to heal whatever keeps us from fulfilling our role, and no matter how much progress we make, there’ll be times when the negativity or depression is just too strong and we have to bow out for a while, work on ourselves a little, and reemerge ready to contribute again.
We can’t ignore any negativity that comes to the surface, and our pain will never go away if we don’t embrace it and heal it. It’ll always be there to remind us of everything about ourselves and our life we don’t care for, and until we deal with it, it’ll always be a monkey on our back that we can’t seem to shake.
We can shake it, but we have to keep trying and refuse to give up when it overwhelms us. We have to use all of our inner faculties to surface and heal our pain, and helping others will become a lot easier once we achieve this.
We’ll be able to use our experience to help others through their pain, and while we aren’t necessarily here to help people through every little problem, we are here to help them heal so they too can emerge and uplift the world.
We’re here to help those among us who also have the potential to get the world’s attention, and the next time you face an impossible obstacle, even one that makes you feel massively depressed, just relax, take a deep breath and try again when you’re ready.
I’d imagine this life is one of the hardest things we’ll ever do, and if you subscribe to a similar outlook on spirituality as me, you’re likely convinced that things will get easier as we raise our vibration and greet higher states of consciousness.
I genuinely believe the struggle will lessen as we raise our vibration, and our challenges will be a lot different. We’ll still be challenged and we’ll still have to look for solutions to certain issues, but the difference will be that we aren’t weighed down by the heaviness of a dense reality that seems driven by fear and hatred.
We’ll exist in a much lighter, freer state of consciousness, and the pains and difficulties that once brought us down will be seen for what they really are: illusions that we were convinced were real. They aren’t, and all it takes to realize this is an active investigation of every last ill that brings us down.
They don’t have the power over us that we’ve given them, and we can work our way through them if we’re willing to persevere and call on our higher consciousness to assist us when the cards seem stacked against us.
Nobody ever said we have to go through this journey alone, and especially when it comes to our creative and spiritual work, we have more assistance than we realize and all we need to do is open up to benefit from it.
It requires an open heart and a diminished ego, and if we have trouble opening the heart or feeling any kind of love, we might want to look within to figure out why our love seems blocked and why we can’t seem to find any positive, balanced or aligned emotions.
We’ll figure it all out if we stay dedicated to our inner search and to the creative work that can help us explore our issues, and strength will always be important to our creative and spiritual exploration.
Strength will see us through when we struggle too much to carry on, so stay strong and don’t listen to that critical voice in your head that makes you think you’re nothing and you should just give up. Please don’t give up, because the world needs your light and chances are that you’ve only begun to understand what you can do.
Keep active and keep your strength intact, and call on your intuition frequently to receive the internal guidance we all require to thrive. The higher self is very real, and this higher consciousness is with us in every single moment. After realizing it exists, the next step is to call on it to receive its strength, support and assistance.
Once we’re connected with our higher consciousness and we can funnel any difficulty we experience up to it, the stresses will become easier and we’ll be able to focus more fully on our passion and our purpose.
I’m a twenty-one year old spiritual writer, blogger and channel for the creative expression of the inner universe, and I created The Culture of Awareness daily news site.
The Culture of Awareness features daily spiritual and alternative news, articles I’ve written, and more. Its purpose is to awaken and uplift by providing material about the fall of the planetary elite and a new paradigm of unity and spirituality.
I’ve contributed to a few different spiritual websites including The Master Shift , Waking Times , Golden Age of Gaia , Wake Up World and Expanded Consciousness . I can also be found on Facebook (Wes Annac and The Culture of Awareness ) and Twitter , and I write a paid weekly newsletter that you can subscribe to for $11.11 a month here .
