It can be easy to forget why we’re here or why we’re doing everything we are, and it can especially be easy to give up and turn to things that distract us from our purpose and keep us from helping others. We have to persevere when the stresses pile up and we don’t feel like we can handle it all, because we know on a deeper level that we can.
It’s common knowledge in the conscious community that we’re capable of more than we realize at the surface, and to do anything significant to advance our collective evolution, we have to recognize that we’re infinite and find the inspiration to help the world in ways we enjoy.
Along the way, we’ll inevitably meet difficulties and stresses that we’ll have to persevere through, but we’ll come out of it all with a new inner wellspring of knowledge and experience.
The stresses will be difficult to navigate if we don’t learn to tap in to our intuitive wisdom, and our intuition, along with the higher consciousness we access through it, will help us through any hard times that confront us.
Everything gets easier when we realize that we aren’t on this journey alone, and we have the intuitive assistance of the higher self and, I’d imagine, plenty of other guides who can be with us if we request their assistance.
We have to courageously persevere when we face the more difficult or uncomfortable aspects of life, but we aren’t on this grand adventure alone. We’re given more support and assistance than we realize, but we have to be willing to open up and tap into it before we can receive it in earnest.
We have to willingly call on the higher self, which we’re gradually evolving into, before we can receive any assistance. We have to be willing to open the mind far and wide to find the higher consciousness we seek, and we’ll be infinite with this higher consciousness by our side.
We’ll be as limitless as we’ve always wanted to be when we can call on our greater awareness to assist us, but despite how often we call on it, there will be times when we can’t seem to connect.
There will be times when, despite our best efforts to stay connected, we feel cut off from our greater awareness, and this might cause us to feel lonely or like we don’t have any support along the evolutionary path.
We do, but this support is less clear at times and this can cause some confusion and uncertainty.
It helps to keep in mind that any seeming disconnection from the higher self is an illusion that won’t last long, and the connection will smooth itself out as long as we’re willing to routinely call on our higher consciousness and pour the clarity and inspiration that result into our work.
I’ve written a little bit lately about turning away from spiritual teachers or channeled sources and giving that attention to our own higher self, and I’m not necessarily saying we shouldn’t listen to a teacher or a channeling.
They’ve helped a lot of people, including me, but I’m encouraging us all to place the faith and confidence we’ve given these sources into ourselves and our higher consciousness. The words of a spiritual teacher might not help much when we face a dire issue in our personal lives, but our higher consciousness will always be there to assist us.
The pain, suffering and difficulty we experience on a daily basis would be a lot easier if we were consistently connected with the higher self, and in my opinion, we’ll continue to struggle until we can repeatedly call on this inner source of strength, knowledge and inspiration.
We have to stay strong and persevere whether or not we feel connected throughout the day, but things would get a lot easier if we could consciously and continuously maintain this connection. Try staying consistently connected for a full day or two, and see how your life is impacted.
Try to repeatedly connect with your higher self and receive wisdom, guidance and creative inspiration, and see how much more you enjoy your work and your life in general.
Staying connected with the higher self doesn’t have to be hard, but we’ve been conditioned to think there’s no such thing as a higher consciousness and this conditioning can cause us to feel like we can’t sustain our connection.
We have to break through the mind control that’s been forced onto us if we want to maintain our connection with the Self, which is why it’s so important to stay receptive to this higher consciousness while remembering to persevere when we struggle instead of sinking into depression or convincing ourselves we don’t belong here.
We have every reason to be joyful about our existence on this planet, because we have an opportunity to contribute to the greatest planetary changes we’ve ever known as a society. Most people are unaware of the changes that are in the air, and this makes our work even more important.
I can say from experience that we’re going to have bad days. We’re going to have days when we just don’t feel like we can do the things we’ve come here to do, and sitting down in front of the TV or playing a video game will sound much more appealing.
For our sake and the sake of our evolving planet, we have to find the strength to say no to these distracting temptations and continue to fulfill our mission. The more we distract ourselves, the more we fail to achieve in our shrinking time here on earth, so let’s remember how crucial this mission is and try to persevere, even in our most difficult times.
Our creative and spiritual dedication will allow us to achieve more than we currently realize, so we’ll have to have faith that we aren’t working for nothing and that we really are moving toward the goal of individual and collective evolution.
I’m convinced that our creative work, along with our meditations or whatever else we use to elevate our consciousness, are not only uplifting us, but the rest of the world as well.
I think that our creative work causes a ripple effect in the collective consciousness, and if we stay dedicated and continue to pursue our goals, the result will eventually be that everyone’s awake, aware and willing to discover and pursue their roles in this ongoing ascension.
So the next time you struggle or you don’t feel like you can keep on, remember that you aren’t alone. You have the assistance of your greater awareness by your side, and in any moment, there are hundreds of other spiritual seekers who are going through similar difficulties as you.
We’d all like to give up sometimes, but we’re slowly realizing that to give up on ourselves would be to give up on our missions, and subsequently, the collective evolution we’re here to ignite.
We won’t always want to stay strong in the face of all odds, but if we had an inkling of what our perseverance will allow us to achieve, we’d know that backing down now is the worst thing we can do. We’re world changers who are here on a mission to inform, uplift and enlighten humanity, so for the sake of the rest of the world, we have to be strong.
