Every challenge is a gateway for growth.
Life can sometimes push us to the edge. We feel that we can't go on anymore. We feel that we're drowning in pain, suffering, stress. We want to give up because it's just too hard. While this place can seem terrifying and unsafe, it is actually a beautiful gift from the universe, because this place is a gateway for growth and expansion. It is in this place that we access strength within ourselves that we didn't know existed.
When you find yourself in this place of terror, however it may present itself to you in life, instead of fighting and struggling against it, embrace what is. Allow the pain, allow the stress, allow the suffering, without allowing the mind to identify with it. Observe. Notice. Simply relax into it, becoming fully present in the now.
When we shift into this space of allowing, as opposed to resisting, a space of calmness opens up deep inside of us and we connect to a power, a strength that we could never imagine existed. From this space we often see with a different perspective because our system remains open instead of contracting and shutting down. New solutions appear and ideas present themselves which were previously out of our scope of vista. And we transcend the challenge with ease and grace, gaining new power and confidence.
When we recognise the potential for growth in challenges we no longer fear them; we can embrace them, knowing that the situation is serving us and providing us with the gift of growth, be it physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. What gifts are currently presenting themselves to you in life?
