Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you need help emotionally or even physically and quickly? Your boyfriend or girlfriend may have broken up with you unexpectedly, or you had to call an ambulance for the emergency of someone you love.
We all find ourselves in situations that are truly gut-wrenching. It’s also been called “having the rug pulled out from under you” because the next thing you know you, you feel like you are face down on the floor or a panic attack is just around the corner…you actually feel and sense it getting ready to emerge. Since life is truly a test, we don’t always get the message that something dire is getting ready to happen. Truthfully, it would be like having a cheat sheet—so what’s the purpose, where’s the learning?—if we know the scenario and answers ahead of time. The best test in life is experience and we are doing this all the time—experiencing life.
So, how do we prepare in advance for these types of unexpected experiences?
First, we learn that on a soul level, we come here to experience the “so-called” bad things. This is our challenge, our work, our test in life. When we understand this, we don’t have the tendency to blame something else, or someone else, for our misfortune. We just neutrally ask the question “Why?” And that’s a good thing —with sincere questions come sincere answers.
Secondly, we become cognizant of the fact that there are spirit guides and guardian angels around us always. We learn not to think of them as an abstract thought, yet real beings in this world of ether who are ready to answer our cry for help. This knowing can come in the form of subtle signs, messages, a feeling of warmth, or a feeling of strength that allows you to do what’s necessary at the time. When you feel like you can no longer be the one in control, ask for your guide in spirit to take over— till you have the strength to be back in the driver’s seat. With help, you may then be able to calmly accept the bad news just given to you, allowing another soul the freedom to choose. Or, better yet, your fingers may just be able to relax so you can call 911.
