The Challenge of Life

why we heal

Life at it’s natural base is challenging. Challenges allow us to grow, to understand ourselves and the world around us better, to deeply appreciate love and inner peace when we feel it. 

The goal for our healing journey is not to cease challenges from happening, but to get better at embracing them. 

Life will always throw curve balls at you. The goal is that with time you get better at hitting them. 

When we are in alignment with ourselves and our life we only attract the challenges that align with our path. 

When we are out of alignment the world will throw you challenge after challenge to reconsider, to test you, to see if this is really where you want to go.

When you are in alignment, these speed bumps don’t feel earth-shattering. They don’t feel inconquerable. There’s a readiness, a diligence that arises to get through them. 

When out of alignment, these challenges make you want to curl up into a ball and hide away. This is not to display your weakness, it’s to suggest you go another way.

Then there are the challenges no one is prepared for. Sudden death, tragedy, loss. Death is as much a part of life as life is. It is not something you can escape, but something you surrender to.

Healing has allowed me the ability to take on life’s challenges with more ease and grace than I ever thought possible. I used to be a bad luck magnet, but now I only attract growth and abundance. 

And when death comes into my life, as it inevitably does, I have more peace with it amongst my grief. I still go through all the stages, anger and bargaining included, but my beliefs bring a lot of comfort. I will see them again, they are taken care of, it’s me and my kin I need to look after now.
