You’ve been struggling so hard to accomplish something. The day finally arrives! You accomplished it. What? You don’t hear the Angels sing their praises? You don’t see fireworks in the sky? You’ve been trying so hard to accomplish this so you would feel better. The day it happens you still feel the same. What is actually happening?
Recently a lady was telling me about having so many emails in your inbox at work. Hundreds and hundreds of unread emails waited for her. It didn’t matter how hard she tried the emails kept coming. Over time she thought it would be so wonderful to have no emails in her inbox. She thought it would be so wonderful to be able to have zero emails for a change. Having zero emails….wow that would make her feel so great.
The day arrived. She finally got to zero emails in her inbox! The interesting thing is she told me there wasn’t the excitement she thought she would have. She jokingly said the Angels didn’t sing and the trumpets didn’t roar like she thought they would. How interesting.
Another person I know shared they won quite a bit of money on the lottery. They talked about the fact that their problems didn’t go away. As a matter of fact relationship issues surfaced again.
The perceived solution to the problem doesn’t always give you what you think it will. The reason that doesn’t happen is because the unrest a person feels on the inside can’t be ‘fixed’ by something on the outside.
Using the example above, if you have so many emails to the point it starts to bother you, the bother is showing you have unrest inside? What does that bring up for you? Every day you look at all the unread emails what does that show you about yourself?
You see when you resolve the unrest which surfaces inside you will be in the most empowered place to handle all your emails regardless if they have been read or not. You won’t have to wait to get to zero emails to experience a great accomplishment. You will naturally experience inner ‘rest’ at the point of resolution.
Using the lottery winner, if the winner had unresolved issues with a past relationship those issues can surface again. If the other person in that relationship was mean, selfish and hard to deal with, once they find out about the money the same mean selfish and hard to deal with person shows up again. Those issues surface giving the winner another opportunity to heal whatever is inside.
Accomplishing things is part of a natural progression in life. There is a beginning, middle and end. Accomplishing is a part of moving forward. Will the Angels sing their praises? Will the trumpets sound? Maybe! Those praises and sounds may just show up when you resolve the unrest inside.
….and let me add, many times you accomplish things that have been really challenging because you have resolved the learning and growing from the experience.
Wherever you are on your journey, may you find what works for you…find your own truth…and you will always be guided to feel at peace inside.
