Why the Secret may not be working for you. This continues from part 3 of this series in regard to “the secret”.
If we are not receiving what we think we want then it can often be because our ego has not yet learned what it came into learn. Spiritual lessons are part of why we incarnate. This is difficult for the ego (rational mind) to fathom. However, until certain events happen in our lives, or we meet certain people, or we succeed or fail at something we do not ‘get the spiritual lesson’ that we came to learn. Things are divinely timed for us. They may not happen in the time frame that our own ego wants. Our ego can feel impatient and despondent if it does not get what it wants fast enough.
So when chaos is happening in our lives it is important to remember that it only means the universe is shaking us up for future growth in consciousness. We will always learn from chaos. We simply cannot get attached to it, but trust that we will get through any challenge we face.
One way to get through chaos faster is to completely surrender. Surrender to the Higher Self and ask for inner guidance. Only when the ego surrenders will it be able to grow to new awareness.
The ego thinks it is in control of everything in its life – however that is the illusion of the ego. I discuss the nature of surrender and control in Spirit in Sport and this is discussed in depth at our programs.
The way to inner peace, love and joy is to heal those subconscious programs that are holding us in emotional bondage. The emotional highs and lows from elation to depression, resentment to infatuation are the ego’s emotional journey through life. It is only when we connect with our Higher Self – our Soul that we can access true divine love and joy. Living with joy and love is our natural state of being – beyond the ego. In challenging times the ego gets stuck in the emotional pain and forgets the true loving state of the Soul Self – our True Self. Our evolution in human form is to heal those personas/programs (the Negative ego) in our mind that are emotionally charged and wounded.
My coaching programs and workshops assist people to heal those parts of their consciousness that are no longer serving them. This includes transforming limiting beliefs that hold people back from achieving the joy, wealth and loving relationships in their lives. Many people are using the Law of Attraction to focus on what they can ‘get’ rather than what they are here to do, give, share and express. In other words what is our Soul’s purpose? What brings us the most joy in life?
