“Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know”. ~ Pema Chodron

Human lives are made up of themes, patterns, archetypes intricately interwoven into the fabric of our existence. These patterns contain messages, lessons, and insights to life’s mission; much can be gleaned from recognizing them and incorporating its deeper meaning into our lives for they offer an inexhaustible source of wisdom.

Themes can reoccur in our lives. For example, getting into a destructive relationship, falling for an unavailable partner, self-sabotaging business venture, running away from responsibility; endlessly popping in and out of our realities like a cosmic Whac-A-Mole game.

The energetic blueprint of these patterns, upon which we lay the foundation of our reality, is still present. So our attention is continuously being drawn to them. Why? To offer yet another opportunity to re-evaluate current circumstance and take a closer look at it. Yet, if unaware, we dismiss these patterns feeling helpless, hopeless and victimized as if the world conspired against us.

Ego’s interpretation.ego-and-soul

Ego judges our life circumstances, concocting countless explanations why things are happening the way they are. All the while, we get caught up in an incessant stream of thinking; on and on we go.

To catch oneself in the midst of ego’s chatter, or ‘monkey mind’ there must be a crack through which the light of awareness enters; a moment of stillness – space in between the thoughts.

Otherwise, the merry-go-round of ego’s chatter and its insanity continues, while clarity and freedom elude us. It’s like the button got stuck and you can’t stop spinning to get off the merry-go-round.

As Wayne Teasdale pointed out, “The ego, however, becomes a serious obstacle to our moral, psychological, and spiritual evolution when it becomes our sole motivational and volitional focus, or when it alone determines our decisions and actions. It is bad enough in ordinary life, but a disaster in the spiritual journey.”

To find out the deeper meaning of life circumstances, major events in our lives, behavioral patterns, we have to delve deeper to further one’s awareness. The illumination of an individual path and life patterns won’t come from the ego but the divine.

The Soul is trying to reveal something to you, are you listening?

Higher wisdom speaks through the language of intuition; an inner voice available to all of us. As Dr. Mona Lisa Schultz pointed out: “Contrary to the prevailing myth, it (intuition) doesn’t exist exclusively among a small band of individuals who possess some sort of extraordinary God-given power…It’s a sense we all share.”

Gary Zukav calls intuition, “a perception beyond the physical senses that is meant to assist you.”
 Call intuition whatever you want: vibes, senses, hunches, gut feelings; they offer invaluable information. I remember a situation when my intuition presented with such strong bodily reaction it couldn’t be ignored.

Several years ago, I received a business proposition – creating a website for fitness enthusiasts; a great idea, nothing like that on the market at the time. Made logical sense to hop on it.

Yet, the moment I got invited to be a co-creator of the project, my stomach got twisted into a pretzel, a wave of nausea hit and a freezing like sensation came over me. My entire body contracted, folding on itself; I was shrinking. The intensity was overwhelming.

trust-the-wisdom-of-your-soulWhile logical mind tried to convince me to do it, the body told a different narrative. To make a long story short, the person to be hired for the project turned out to be a fraud. I honored the guidance by heeding the warning and saved myself a headache and thousands of dollars in the process.

In order to have clarity to detect life’s nuances, one has to tune into the ebbs and flows of life. The intuitive antenna needs to be raised up to pick up subtleties of the surrounding energies. So much information is available to us, literally, at our fingers tips. Yet, to access it, we need to listen. Be still, yet alert. Be in the NOW.

Awareness allows us to decipher the meaning and patterns of life; it offers a road map to navigate this human existence. It opens the door for synchronicity, epiphany, divine grace to infuse our lives. To sum it up, the themes and patterns of our lives serve as guideposts on the journey, divinely placed to serve the highest evolution.

The choice belongs to us how we interpret it; either by allowing self-righteous and victimized ego do the job or letting Soul’s higher wisdom offer guidance via intuitive insights, dreams, metaphors, thought forms. The more we explore the path, the more we realize the so-called obstacles, as ego interprets it, are nothing more but lessons from which to learn.

As Eckhart Tolle beautifully said, “Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment.” So embrace all experiences. Follow your soul’s intuitive guidance and co-create consciously and responsibly.
