Reduce Your Pain and Suffering The Divine Plan Way

From the videos and blog posts I’ve been coming across it is apparent that many people (including many light-workers) are experiencing a lot of pain and suffering lately, both the emotional as well as the physical kind. How do you effectively reduce the pain and suffering you’re feeling? This article shows how to reduce your pain and suffering the “Divine Plan” way and is inspired (again) by my friend Joshua Tilghman.

In a recent “Spirit of the Scripture” blog post Joshua wrote, “What you once thought were the worst moments of your life can be the catalysts for your greatest triumph.” This is exactly the same conclusion I came to when I was going through a chaotic and intensely painful time in my life around a dozen or so years ago, before I began writing my book, What Everyone Believed.

What I find interesting are the words Joshua chooses here, namely “catalyst” and “triumph.” As soon as I connected with my higher self and asked for guidance, even when I hadn’t yet seen a glimpse of the light at the end of the tunnel, the words “catalyst” and “triumph” began to drop into my consciousness regularly. Kind of strange, don’t you think?

In fact, a blissful, triumphant feeling in my heart accompanied by the thought / word “triumph” would interrupt, quite regularly, my then prevalent state of confusion and pain, even when my problems were not yet resolved and my pain tramadol intense. Kind of baffling, huh? But this is when I knew I was onto something, and it’s what encouraged me to continue doing what I was doing (meaning, connecting with and following my inner guidance), even though I didn’t know the outcome of this path.

So how can what I wrote above help people reduce their pain and suffering? Well, I’ve realized that the solutions to our problems cannot be found simply by looking to what’s already available outside of ourselves. But that’s because we are being “pushed” by “higher powers” to look within ourselves, to discover something new, to create something new, to fulfill our “higher purpose.” Because of course it’s high time for that.

Our life plans are not conscious to us. If we were conscious of our soul’s plan, if we had been conscious of what was in store for us, we would not have gotten ourselves into the situations that promised us the most growth; we would have avoided them as much as possible. We would have avoided situations that demanded that we grow. And, like it or not, this world is all about growth.

So here’s a clue as to how to reduce the amount of pain and suffering you experience from now on–consciously connect with your higher self and follow through with your inner guidance. In other words, take the steps that your higher self is nudging you to take for your own growth. Don’t resist or ignore or prolong the situation. If you ignore your inner guidance, the same issues will come up for you over and over again. (And it will probably get more painful.)

Really hard times (with all the chaos and confusion) catalyze us to look within for the solutions, to develop a relationship with the Divine within us. Developing a real relationship with your higher self is how you will find solutions that are unprecedented, solutions that will not only help yourself but the larger world as well. Furthermore, this is how your deepest heart’s desires will be fulfilled. It’s how we will create the “Golden Age.”

In summary, understanding the following spiritual principles will help reduce your pain: 1. Your life situations are chosen by your soul for maximum soul growth, not because you’re bad or wrong or because there’s something wrong with you, and 2. Following through with your inner guidance will speed up your growth and things will get considerably easier for you. The Universe will cooperate more, and you’ll place yourself in favorable synchronicities that help you progress and assist you with fulfilling your higher life purpose. Why? Because by doing so you support the Divine Plan to finally create a lasting Golden Age for all of humanity.

Viewing your problems and challenges this way (instead of the “normal” way, such as, “there’s something wrong with me” or “there’s something wrong here”) can reduce considerably the fear and pain you’re feeling and can motivate you to make changes in your life that you know it’s high time you make. So, rather than having an attitude to your challenges as something bad, view them as freakin’ gifts bestowed upon you from the Divine–so that you can finally, with the help of Grace, realize your potential.

    I have experienced the painful situations and the triumph of realizations as you have but my life seems to be going in the opposite direction. Meaning, I seem to know spiritual things, important life things and even some knowledge before I pick up a book. Reading some books with conclusions I’ve already come to have confused me. I stop reading them before I even get thru the 1st chapter. I seem to be led to learn more about social things. I’ve experienced a lot of social isolation in my life, which has recently made itself very apparent. So that is the path I am now on.

      Hi Toni,

      Yes I understand, I’m being led to begin another project that is considered much more social than spiritual. But bringing the spiritual principles into the social so that they “integrate” is the plan. For some “lightworkers” it might mean returning to the corporate environment, even. However it happens and whatever paths we take there will be change…

      Many blessings, and thanks for sharing. Christine

    Hi Christine,

    I totally agree. Maybe it makes it easier to understand when you compare it with crucifixion and resurrection. Crucifixion: allowing and no longer fighting your experiences and then digesting and balancing them. Resurrection: total peace and understanding. This is definitely not easy, I am right in the middle of it, but it helps if you get the principle.

      Hi Anny,

      We can look at the “Dark Ages” as the time where crucifixion on the cross of duality is the prevalent “human story,” the pattern of human experience, and the “Golden Age” as the time where that level of experience is no longer necessary because we have evolved beyond it (the resurrection). Thanks for commenting and many blessings! Christine

  5. Dear Christine,
    Exactly what so many people want/need to remember right now.

    As more Light enters earth, more are starting to clear and cleanse. Information that you’ve presented in this blog is so right to help them move through and beyond their fears and pain.
    Blessings and Sparkles,
    Brenda

      Thanks Brenda! I think it’s more than just about clearing and cleansing, though. It’s about discovering who we are when we connect to our inner power and what we’re capable of when that happens. It’s about living lives of mastery, about becoming the masters of our lives. Spiritual and physical mastery, both.

      Many blessings to you!
      Christine

    Thank you, Christine, for another timely and excellently written blog … catalyst and triumph indeed. We are simply not allowed to stay in our comfort zone and it can be painful to realize we are holding on to old belief systems that simply no longer serve. If I find myself saying “that’s just the way I am,” my next thought is “uh-oh!” It’s like my own personal code words for, “Belief system alert! Examine, release, get it gone!” Ouch. Luckily, the more practice we have, the easier it becomes. It’s all about letting our old egoic operating system go and listening to Divine guidance, just as you stated.

      Thanks Pamela, and I would put extra emphasis on the “listening to Divine guidance” part of your advice. At first, this might be hard, because the part of us connected to the Divine is in the dormant stage. But as we take baby steps and listen and follow through daily with the guidance, we will experience amazing results and new insights that will build our confidence. And over time, we will triumph!

      Many blessings, Christine

    Hello Christine, I agree with you (as I usually do) haha, seriously though you have to go within for no matter what goes on outside in the world all the pain and sorrow and hardships that are so called ‘normal’ occurrences, by going within you can sit in the ‘eye of the storm’ so to speak and switch off from the all the media helps a great deal. Love and light always Selina x

      Thanks Selina! Great to hear from you again! Yes, understanding the bigger picture does wonders when it comes to “switching off” the media as well. So that we can focus on more productive things like our higher purpose. Peace! Christine

    Hi Christine,

    I get lost sometimes wondering what is my purpose as chosen by my soul contract. To be full time mother to three kids, each with unique needs or to be a super working mother where I usually mentor so many more people while at work but it seems at expense of my kids who want me home. I wanted my kids to ‘already get it’ and be independent leading their lives so that I can help and lead others.

    I sought countless times within myself, debating and arguing with myself what is my purpose so that I can finally be at peace to be doing what I am supposed to be doing, no more suffering or pain of having to make a decision. Often I felt humans get overly confused and just want to shut out, wanting a figure to tell them what to do and they just follow. It is easier isn’t it? And one can also shift responsibility and blame to others. I did not know….or She or he told me so…. One is ‘safe’ from accusation. Or one can pin decision on concepts of ‘love’, ‘filial piety’ to point of disregarding appropriateness of situation and request and they get mixed feelings of joy to help a loved one while suffering consequences of not having the capacity to help in actuality.

    Extreme on both ends, always no and always yes, are duality at work causing pain and suffering. For to exercise balance of extremes means to evaluate and make a conscious decision and that in itself is an exhaustive process which some want to avoid, and it also means calling up one’s mindful awareness to a certain decision which would mean going against or differing from view of a loved one or the masses.

    Agree wholeheartedly with you, Christine, about how our HS is guiding us. We will get clearer within ourselves of what we want when incidents or events or people acting as catalysts are triggered, forcing us to dig deep within ourselves amidst the chaotic emotions and feelings and thoughts to eventually triumph, come through, win over, held victory over ourselves to dawn on us what has always been the truth about ourselves within us.

    I felt a sudden deep sadness and grief one night and it puzzled me till I got a call the next day of an interview a headhunter got for me. I had been enjoying at home while looking out and this call triggered my having to spend time what is the right thing for me to do, causing me headaches and internal debate once again of merits and demerits of working and staying home. If I had been very clear about my purpose, there is no cause for suffering or pain. It would be a yes or no event. Always unsure about my purpose, means having to go through endless evaluation thereby causing distress and hence suffering.

    Sometimes, I know innately what is my purpose, deep within me I know, but I choose not to accept, to reject. And I believe in free will too, that if I am sure enough what I want, Universe will re-create for me the experiences I want. So now, I am dreaming a better dream, a dream where I can have best of both worlds, yes, a balance of both and it takes loads of effort, time and analytical process to be creative and think out of the box what alternative options I can explore and in having those options, to have the courage to take that step to venture, to have an adventure of a road less travelled in the minds and eyes of people I am with…my family, friends etc.

    This brings us to another issue of pain and suffering….of what we be is different from others who are still asleep. Hence this sense of isolation we feel being awakened. In a nutshell as I always guide my kids, we cannot control thoughts, words and behavior of others, so we just let them be and bless them. We do our own thing for our personal walk in spiritual development. Once we can put things in general priority and perspective of what we want to nurture our spirit with, notion of pains and suffering are lessened, minimized, mitigated with more positive thinking and action and voila, Oneness with duality triumphs.

    Namaste

      Hi Sandra and thank you for your astute comment! I would add that it is much less painful when we choose to follow our inner guidance in the moment, rather than waiting to be finally “catalyzed” by other people, events or incidents. And if following our inner guidance would be the prevalent pattern of human existence, we’d have a planet of peace and joy rather than pain and suffering. Many blessings to you in your endeavors and in balancing your work and home life!

    Hello Christine
    This information is absolutely correct regarding the way our problems should be dealt with.We can all sit around and feel sorry for ourselves (I have done this at times, we are human after all) but to connect to our Higher self is the only way! If we don’t address the signs when a problem first occurs, it will present even bigger problems until we begin to change the situation we find ourselves in. If something in our lives has become so unacceptable to us,then we must change it to become our happier Higher Self. When we reach the “Catalyst” point it is the “Last Straw” and that makes us do something about the problem. If we become clever enough before the “Catalyst” point arrives, then we could save ourselves a lot of pain.Sometimes we let things drift for too long. We should not forget that we are here to experience.We should also remember that we are a spiritual entity in a Linear (Human) body, not the other way round. We are here to experience many things and we are allowed to be happy. If People/ Friends/ situations no longer fit in with our way of being, then we have to leave them behind in order to grow. Our Higherself is our map to use when we are lost. Our Higherself loves us and will not let us down, trust it and consult when needed. Blessings to all.

    It really fascinates me how I happen to come across a message that I so need to hear or be reminded of — be it a book, a film, a song, an email, or a blog such as this. Talk about following my inner guidance. In this case, it was the nudge to satisfy my curiosity — “I wonder what that blog has to tell me….” I’m so glad I followed the nudge. 🙂 Thank you for the timely reminder Christine! 🙂 And I particularly resonated with your response to Brenda, “…it’s more than just about clearing and cleansing, though. It’s about discovering who we are when we connect to our inner power and what we’re capable of when that happens. It’s about living lives of mastery, about becoming the masters of our lives. Spiritual and physical mastery, both.” Ahhh….I’m taking that all in. 🙂 Much Blessings & Much Love to you…Keep Well & Be Light…Namaste…♥♥♥Nadine Marie♥♥♥
