At some point, we all go through something we'd really rather not go through. Perhaps a relationship with a family member has become strained. Or a significant other has cheated. Maybe you're in a job you hate or you've just lost your job. Or in a situation that leaves you with recurring and seemingly endless negative emotions.
Whatever you're going through, you have a choice to make. Will you see it as an obstacle or as an opportunity?
How you see what you're going through is more important that what you're going through. That bears repeating: How you see what you're going through is even more important that what you're going through.
How you see things determines how much more of it you'll have to deal with. In the words of Abraham-Hicks:
The realization that something is not as you want it to be is an important first step, but once you have identified that, the faster you are able to turn your attention in the direction of a solution, the better, because a continuing exploration of the problem will prevent you from finding the solution. The problem is a different vibrational frequency than the solution—and all thoughts (or vibrations) are affected by (or managed by) the Law of Attraction.When we see our situation as an obstacle, we are wallowing in our pain and bringing more of it our way. We become so wrapped up in the inequity, injustice or unfairness of what happened that we can't see any solution anywhere.
When we see our situation as an opportunity, then solutions can present themselves. When our vibrational frequency is raised, we are in the flow, allowing more of what we truly desire to enter into our lives.
Imagine that the crappy stuff that's happening is for our benefit, even when we can't see it in the moment.
Perhaps it was necessary for you to lose your job in order to open up the opportunity to find one that you do like.
Maybe that strained relationship with your family member is an opportunity to see yourself in a different light, which opens the door for deeper healing.
Perhaps finding out that your significant other is cheating is an opportunity for you to re-evaluate your choice in mates, and then open to the possibility of an even better relationship with someone else.
No matter what you're dealing with, ask yourself: Do I want this to continue and therefore see it as an obstacle? Or do I want to be open to solutions and therefore see it as an opportunity.
This is the beauty of a free-will Universe: You get to choose.
