What if you believed life was happening for you … always? Like every moment of your life, even the pain and struggles, is always for your highest good — and something to celebrate.
Over two years ago when I went through a crappy breakup, I called one of my beautiful soul sisters. I was walking through Palisades Park in Santa Monica, California balling my eyes out when I called her. I shared with her what happened and she said, “I know I’m probably supposed to say I’m sorry, but I’m not going to. In fact, we get to celebrate this because this is part of your soul’s journey. I know something good will come from this, and I can’t wait to find out what it is … Now don’t get me wrong, if you need a shoulder to cry on, or if you need someone to scream at the top of the mountain with you, or if you want someone to come over to just sit quietly and hold you, I’m your girl. But, we get to celebrate this.”
I was not expecting that response, BUT, I was sooooooo grateful for it. I was hit with clarity that everything that happens in our life is something to celebrate — the good, and what we may perceive as bad. When we feel sorry for ourselves (and want others to do the same), or resist what is, it only creates suffering and keeps us in a lower vibration. When we’re in a lower vibe, it’s difficult to bring in and receive the good.
After that powerful conversation, I began to see all the challenges that happen in life as something to celebrate because it is for our highest good. There’s growth and expansion that can come from every experience if we choose it. That’s our soul’s journey.
The crazy thing is, earlier this year, my soul sistah called me. She shared that she was diagnosed with 4th stage breast cancer. I listened, and took a deep breath in, and as I gently breathed it out, I got to say to her, “I know I’m probably supposed to say I’m sorry, but I’m not going to. In fact, we get to celebrate this because this is part of your soul’s journey. I know something good will come from this, and I can’t wait to find out what it is …”
Let me tell ya, the shift in choosing to see that life is happening for you, and that even the challenges are something to celebrate, radically transforms the experience of pain.
Is there something you’re challenged with right now? Or are you experiencing pain? How is this happening for you? What good can come from it? Most importantly, don’t forget to celebrate, because this is part of your soul’s journey, and there’s going to be magic when you get to the other side.
With all my love,
