You either believe in divine order or you don’t. It’s an all or nothing thing. Either you’re aware that all events occur for your soul’s growth, your highest good, and the highest good of all – or life feels chaotic, painful and meaningless.
Each day provides opportunities to shift back and forth between those two views until you fully align with the view that empowers you most and moves your life in a positive direction. Only then can you fulfill your soul’s mission and live up to your greatest potential.
You may find yourself saying, “Things happen for a reason” when you get a new job, your business is thriving, you fall in love, have a baby, or gain recognition. You slip on the lens of divine order at those moments and offer gratitude to a loving God or a divine universe that operates for your highest good.
When things aren’t going so well; when you lose that great job, when you’re facing bankruptcy, your spouse divorces you, or your child dies in a tragic accident – you may feel angry at a God who could cause such cruel suffering, or you may rage at an unjust universe where tragic events unfold for no reason.
This is your awakening moment – when your soul is being pushed to the next level of your growth – which is exactly what you agreed to experience before this lifetime began. It’s also when you find out if you’re living from your soul’s perspective, your divine view, or from your ego self.
Whenever you’re afraid, grief stricken, shut down or angry, it’s time for realignment with your highest self. Your ego self (driven by the monkey mind) has lied to you and taken you far from who you came here to be. You feel this separation from soul as fear, confusion, depression, addiction and anger.
Fear, pain and despair occur in all of us when we lose our connection to our higher self, to our divinity. Of course, we ALL experience moments of great pain. It’s part of our human journey here.
Yet the moment we cry out for help from our higher self everything changes. It’s as simple as this little prayer:
Please divine guides (or God) help me shift into my soul’s perspective on this crisis, help me put on my God lens and see the wisdom of this moment.
Then take a breath and wait for the shift, listen for the inner voice that speaks to you with love and not fear.
At that moment, you’re lifted into the divine view of life and reminded that you’re a powerful soul who came here on purpose to evolve and help others. Suddenly you see divinity in everything; the golden glow of love and divine order in each moment – painful and joyful. You feel expanded, unafraid, open and clear on how to move forward. Your divine lens is activated.
The ego self tells us we’re here to win, manipulate, accumulate, conquer, protect and defend. The divine lens shows us the grand view of our soul’s perspective. It reveals that we agreed to come into this lifetime to face these exact moments of crisis and view them with love, awareness, gratitude and wisdom; to understand the pain of others who may be hurting us; to realize that everyone is doing exactly the best as they can given their level of consciousness – and that all is forgiven in the end.
Your divine lens reveals that YOU are a highly evolved soul who intended to shine your wisdom and understanding on the painful dark moments of your life and to help others do the same. YOU came here to shine love on your fear; to pour light on your greatest pain.
Every single day of this lifetime has been perfectly designed to help you remember your divinity and shift out of the frightened ego view that is rooted in the physical experience of being human.
In one moment of recognizing this, one heart-opening shift of perspective, your life changes, your soul speaks up, and your next step is revealed…
Try it now. Call out to your highest self to pull you into the light, to reveal your soul’s view, to lift you out of darkness and fear. Take a breath and feel the shift. It changes everything…
