“Challenge doesn't come to small people. Great challenge comes to great people.”
-Yogi Bhajan 3/12/1989
One of the sutras of the Aquarian Age is “There is a way through every block.”
The first words to come out of your mouth when you come face to face with a block in your life is, “Thank You.” Thank you for this opportunity to transcend yet another challenge. Thank you for showing me where I need to change so that I can be more of my authentic self. It may sound masochistic or arrogant, but this is a thank you that is rooted deep within the soul. Great people are grateful for everything that life brings.
Our purpose on this planet is to evolve and these blocks mean that you are about to go to a whole new level in Earth school. The truth is that these blocks we experience are only illusions created by the mind. When it seems as if you have come up against a block in your life, it means you have come up against a block in your own mind. You may need to let go of self-limiting beliefs you have about yourself, other people and the world.
For example, if the block you are facing is with money—not enough of it to do what you want—for instance, to go back to school to get a business degree; then the block could be teaching you that your Soul does not want a business degree. It wants you to go inward and listen. Maybe your Soul wants you to just start the business of your dreams and let go of the self-limiting belief that in order for you to succeed you must go to university first.
Maybe your Soul does not want you doing things for other people's approval. Maybe your Soul wants you to let go of the self-limiting belief that you are not gifted just the way you are, or maybe you need the experience of synchronicity and being supported by the Divine every step of the way. The answers lie within your own Soul as to why you are experiencing a block.
As teachers and leaders of the Aquarian Age, the base line consciousness that we need to reach is complete and utter acceptance of everything that life brings to us—including the great challenges. When faced with a block, it is best to soften, which means to not resist it. If you harden yourself up against a block, no energy will move. It is like if you have a tent in a wind storm. If you tighten up the fly, the tent will tip over. If you take off the fly and let the harsh winds move through the mesh unobstructed, the tent will remain standing.
So too you—do not resist your life challenges by not allowing them to be there in the first place. In the places where you do not accept, there will be no life force energy available to you. If you only remember that you are much bigger than your challenges, you will eventually, in the right time, transcend them with the help of the divine.
This evolutionary energy is prodding each of us to keep growing and expanding. We must see the Universe as a benevolent force with only our highest good in mind. The level of challenges you face today are only a testament to the strength of your great Soul. It is time to trust life above all else.
