One of my favorite tarot cards is the "wheel of fortune" and that card represents the ying and yang of the world. Life consist of triumphs and struggles and we can't predict when either one will occur. We should strive for the triumphs, but the struggles are designed for growth. Sometimes we can foresee bad events unfolding because we are causing them, but other times they can just come out of the blue. Since we are all connected on a global level, it can be someone else's problem that indirectly affects you. At first, when we feel the stings of these events we are plagued with mixed emotions.
It depends also on your emotional stability, but either way we are human and no matter what, there are some events that will break you emotionally. It is okay to feel those emotions and go through the phases of trying to piece together what is already crumbling. We don't get to see what the event really is leading to until we take a moment and pause. We have to step back from the situation and look at it from a higher perspective. If we don't then we risk the chances of making our situation worse.
We may say hurtful words that we can't take back later. We might make the wrong choices that furthers us away from the silent lesson occurring. Then, our ego builds up and we feel it is too late and possibly stay stuck in limbo even longer than intended. It is not easy dealing with vulnerability, but it is possibly what the universe wants you to acknowledge. You might be a person who always holds everything in and the universe uses an event to strengthen your emotional core. As time goes on that message may become clearer.
Sometimes we forget how much strength we actually have already. We forget those battles we faced in the past. We forget how we laughed at the stupid mistakes me made because once again we are confronted with those sticky emotions. We can't control them and that's what drives us crazy. Emotions take patience and faith to work in my opinion. Logic on the other hand is full of facts and figures that we can easily place together.
Still we must learn to tread through those emotional waters because it is a part of life. We are meant to experience all aspects of life to fully enjoy it. Can you imagine everything going great all the time? We wouldn't strive so hard because we know that it would work. Most situations that are troubling involve loving another. It could be an intimate relationship or a friendship. When you mix the situation with another then it definitely can seem foreign. That is because you have two separate worlds of thinking and feeling that are trying to reach a solution.
You then have to deal with bruised egos that throw words at each other. In the end, proving who is wrong or right doesn't solve the battle. It just declares a winner and a loser. Is that really what you want? You must search for a common ground. That is why it is important to clear your intentions, set boundaries, and learn to communicate. Communication is key to anything in life. You must be an open minded listener and have confidence in yourself to speak up when necessary.
It is perfectly natural to be wrong, but it isn't fair to try and manipulate others. While you are going through these phases that send you for a loop, you have to look within so that you can come out stronger. We are designed to be strong individuals. We are designed to pull up others as we go. Someone out here is going through something you survived. So be that beacon of light.
The universe never puts more on you than you can take. Give yourself some credit to know you are going to be okay. It's not easy when you don't have clarity at the moment, but like every storm, the sky soon clears. It takes time for you to see, but one day you will look back and say, I survived. You will be in a better place if you learn to channel situations positively. If you look for how your choices brought you to where you are now-then you are halfway through the battle. Don't play victim to the situation!
Take all your choices and throw away the negative ones. Learn to break old habits that seem to be repeating in your life. Open up to a new way of living because a better path is being forged for you. Also realize that the universe is doing you a favor by removing any negative blocks, people, or etc. from your life. You are loving energy and continue to stay that way because no matter what situation you are in, love conquers all. Blessed be.
