Deepak Chopra,world renowned mind-body connection guru, tells us that "All great changes are preceded by chaos."
It is only when our usual, predictable methods of handling our life problems FAIL and we are feeling LOST that we step outside the box and search for new inspiration regarding how to reframe the issues and, thereby, change our perspective, our beliefs and ultimately our feelings.
This point in time is extremely valuable to usbecause without the turmoil and tumult...without the agitation and frustration of the chaos... we would keep doing what has always worked for us...
we would ride the high...
but we would stop growing.
And that is why we need to BLESS these moments. The Divine Universe is sensing we are READY for the next cutting-edge change in our life. It has upped the ante, sizing us up as capable of dealing with the distress and, even more importantly, capable of making it work in our favor.
In Alberto Villoldo's COURAGEOUS DREAMING he gives us an inspired suggestion regarding how to change the story we are telling ourselves about the chaos.
Villoldo says we tend to see ourselves in one of three roles: victim, rescuer or perpetrator.
If, however, we can vacate these roles and fly instead to the spiritual level of eagle in our version of the story...we can successfully REFRAME its significance...how it affects us...and what we are able to learn about ourselves.
If the chaos we are experiencing makes us feel victimized...
if the fallout of the crisis feels personal...
know that it IS personal but it is not meant as an attack on us...
it is a personal, unique-to-us OPPORTUNITY to reach deep inside and find the strength and resilience to transcend the experience and find within ourselves the courage...the creativity...and the conviction to see the bigger picture and to nurture a character trait that we have not yet developed.
What brings us angst, fear, distress, frustration... ALSO brings us the very powerful occasion for transcendence and release from that suffering.
Chaos is the ultimate MASQUERADE. What looks like pandemonium is, in reality, a perfect strategy.
An always-brilliant plan to help us evolve into the Next, Grandest Version of Ourselves...from the highest state-of-the-art personal development bureau, The Divine Universe!
