Lately, many people coming to me have been describing an internal tug of war; a feeling that seems to be distracting them from daily routine. Although normal enough for a session, this particular feeling, doesnít seem to be directly related to their circumstances at hand. It is more of a stirring. They express to me that no matter how good they have it or try to ignore it, nothing makes it go away. Whatís even more interesting is that as distracting as this is, it seems to be somehow familiar yet they still canít quite place a finger on exactly what it is!
Between the hustle and bustle of everyday scheduling, bills, family and illnesses when they arise, we work hard to meet deadlines, achieve goals and ensure that the needs of those closest to us are met to the best of our ability. From the moment we hold an idea of how we would like for our lives to be, hit or miss, it begins coming together, literally taking on a life of its own. Memories and experiences begin joining forces, some of which in our wildest dreams never could we have imagined let alone planned for. None the less, even the bad experiences make us what we are today and press us to see precisely what weĎre made of.
Most experiences have one thing in common. Thereís a point where they began, the course of travel and a resolution. Our lives as a whole inhabit this same structure. We enter this world, we have a certain amount of freedom to explore and grow and finally pass on to take an even greater spiritual journey.
It is during this spiritual journey we are preparing to re-enter the physical plane and allowed to bring back with us a souvenir, so to speak. There are moments in our life where we are most likely to catch a glimpse of it. Many of these times will include some form of transition such as illness, surgery, death, loss, trauma, etc. anytime where our physical surroundings have been disrupted.
That souvenir is what is called, our spiritual contract. Within it, contains everything we have come to be, understand and lessons we have yet to complete. All in all it is a blueprint for our lifeís work and purpose for being here. It is flexible enough only in the sense of being patient for various forms of self-sacrifice, children, family support or self inflicted distractions. As we travel further into our life experience, that apparent complacency begins to dissolve becoming gradually more adamant.
Because it contains the deepest end of our Soulís transitions and has carefully taken centuries for itís development over the many lifetimes we have incurred, it has strategically prepared for the progress we have agreed to work on personally as well as with others in this one. As we begin emerging from our "spiritual amnesia", the memory of this contract can seemingly disrupt everything from relationships or social status to a chosen profession.
Try to remember, as tempting as it is to measure this stirring on a physical level, because it is a carry over from our spiritual world, it is addressing us on a different level. Toss the idea out of a mid-life crisis and embrace the fact that it isn't imbalance we're entering, in fact there very much is a reason for it all!
