Making It Through The Hard Times…Uplifted

Share this

To some extent we all know that the year 2012 represents a time of great transformation and change on this planet, and for the beginning of the Golden Age. But what is the catalyst for this transformation and change? And what motivates you to grow and change the most in your life?

I read a comment on another blog recently that was pure wisdom and I’ll share it with you here. But first, I have been saying for years that things will get worse on this planet before they get better, and I’m still saying that. But that’s because all the bad stuff being exposed motivates us to make real and significant changes in our world…changes that will contribute to the larger 2012 transformation. (I feel the tide will begin to turn sometime later this year.) Anyway, Katie’s comment:

Humans by and large are moved toward growth and expansion by trauma. What is more outwardly traumatic than the world we live in today? This overtly corrupt world is helping to open the eyes of many, readying them for connection with their own inner Source and power.  And help is always readily available on the inner planes. Would as many be waking up if the Enlightened Ones were softening the blows?–Katie

I like to call this growth and expansion “The Big Test” that each individual is going through.The Big Test involves discovering for yourself what you’re truly capable of, getting in touch with your inner power by applying it daily, getting your manipulated human mind (brainwashed by years of disempowering messages such as, “You’re not good enough,” “You’re incapable,” “Who do you think you are, anyway?” etc.) to accept that you really are a powerful, worthy and wonderful being.. particularly when you’re fulfilling your higher purpose and contributing to the creation of the Golden Age for all. (We all like to have evidence and results to back things up, you know…)

So…what motivates personal growth and expansion more than challenge, hardship, and even trauma? From my own personal experience, I can definitely say that the close-to-traumatic events in my life (beginning about 10 years ago) motivated my transformation and change the most. The difference now is, I notice that there are many more people (even in my own circle of friends) experiencing personal challenges than there were about ten years ago.

Here’s a important point to take from this blog post: What made those events “close-to-trauamtic” (and not truly traumatic) was the knowing I had (communicated to me by the Counsel of Light) that there was a divine reason I was in the deep doo-doo, that there wasn’t anything wrong with me, that I was in this because of the things that were right about me, and that my experience would later help many others. Getting through my experience transformed, strengthened and uplifted by the challenging events rather than being crushed by them and sharing that experience was going to help others. (This is the story my memoir tells…about my Big Test.)

Anyway, the blog post where I found Katie’s comment claimed that the Enlightened Ones/Angels/ETs have ascended and have now actually abandoned us: Just look all around you, nothing’s happening; we’re left alone. But this viewpoint isn’t true at all.

It may appear that way, but that’s because it’s difficult for the Enlightened Ones/Angels/ETs to get through to the consciousness of the vast majority of people on this planet.

The way the “Angels” help you is to guide you–through your inner guidance and “signs” they give you that some think are signs from “God” or the “Universe.”  They “rescue us” by guiding us, and this is how the transformation will manifest.

Transformation is likely to occur when your inner pain and need for change becomes greater than the discomfort you feel when you step outside your comfort zone. Pain and anguish are the ultimate motivators.

Emotional pain and confusion is what had me search for answers years ago…and I was led to the Counsel of Light, who were already waiting for me. They guided me through several channeled messages (received through a Channel) and I followed through with my guidance for years. Now I can understand this Ascension process, and the importance of reconnecting with your higher self and following through with your inner guidance such that you fulfill your higher purpose. I know that more people will awaken, and the way that will happen is by things getting even worse before they get better.

But no matter how crazy things get in your life, try to view it from this perspective: The chaos isn’t happening because there’s something wrong with you, but that you are going through a big test that will lead to your upliftment and the Golden Age in the not-too-distant future. Viewing it this way will make it a lot easier to get through.

I know that David Wilcock and many others have also spoken about the importance of alleviating the fears of those who don’t know what’s going on (your neighbors, family and friends) when some challenging events (such as the mass arrests of some elite) occur in the “near future.” Understanding better what’s going on will help people make it through the hard times with much more grace and ease.

    Very interesting conversation. Hard to do when you are in the middle of crisis. This is also a “dragon year”- which is the year of transformation and change. The way I best heard it described is that you never see the head of the dragon and the tail of the dragon at the same time- so the year will mimic that- starting off one way and twisting and turning abruptly in directions we are not expecting.

      Hi Tere! I appreciate your perspective on this. Dragon year–the year of transformation and change. So true.

      Yes, it’s hard to do in the middle of a crisis but it’s also a fast way to transform things in a positive way–IF we listen to our inner guidance rather than conventional wisdom and take courageous steps forward.

    Each “Big Test” teaches, if we listen to Divine Guidance, how to be in the world and not OF the world. Yes, harder in the middle of a crisis, but once applied, navigating a crisis becomes so much easier.

    As you say, Christine, it is the hardest tests that create the biggest growth. At the start of my true spiritual growth, for me to reach out to Guidance, I had to be at my lowest ebb. At a point where I felt I had no choice but to literally let go and let Godde.

    It is then that we find our true power and start disempowering those disempowering voices (all the “not good enough” stuff). Letting go of old values, old belief systems and programs … such a freeing of our Spirit that allows us to take on whatever is put before us.

    I have to add, too, that it sure helps to have those we can speak with from time to time … friends, mentors, teachers and students … to keep us on our own right track.

    Thank you for another wonderful blog! HUGS–Pam

  3. I do agree with connecting with my HS. And also feel very strongly we all must
    be open to feel all types of energy. Balance is the Key to unlock the transformation. We must all find a way back to source.
