Life is funny in that it presents you things quietly, subtly, at first.
It hopes that you recognize the message, and take action on it. That action could be addressing a fear, paying a bill, or learning to trust.
If you don’t get the first message, it will send you a stronger one. And if you don’t get that one? More will come in succession, in larger and larger proportions, until the shit hits you in the face and you have no other option than to deal with it.
The act of meditation provides an option to listen to the subtle messages, but in our world rife with diversions, many claim that they don’t have time to meditate. Similar results can be obtained with other practices, such as physical exercise, creating art, cleaning or cooking, to name a few. It’s when the mind is at rest that we are most receptive to these gentle messages. But sometimes people don’t have time for any of it…and those are the people who are presented with DRAMA, because that’s what it takes to get them to pay attention.
Do you like drama? Great! Then expect that your problems, and their solutions, will necessarily be bigger than life, because that’s what you’ve asked for. There’s no judgment in that statement; it may just be that you love action and movement and wild, extreme emotions.
In my experience, the youthful years are full of drama, until we gain the wisdom to remember that it can wear us out quickly. Then, as we experience more in our bodies on Earth, we choose simpler, calmer options for learning.
So if you are encountering a number of hits to your sanity, look at where you may be diverting your attention. Recognize any patterns from the past that were repeated indicators that your soul is trying to get your attention.
When you find it, address it head on with whatever method feels right to you. Drama or simplicity, your choice.
