Reflections on Willingness

When problems or unpleasant issues arise, we have a tendency either to ignore them, get angry, or take it out on an innocent person. (Usually somebody close to us or even strangers.) This can lead to further conflict and unsettle us from our True Self.

We believe the key to willingness is to let go of the problem or issue and turn within for the answers. The answers always come when we seek Divine guidance. We will know what to do, and what to say.

For example, we may hold on to an unhappy childhood. Many of us have come from dysfunctional families. We may still carry around the pain and emotional wounds of the past. Because we are focused on the past, we are not living in the moment of unlimited opportunities.

The question is are we ready to release all of this negativity?  This brings us to the consideration of willingness. We have to be willing to give up the suffering we cling to. How do we do this?

First, allow yourself to fully feel the pain. Sometimes we need help with this process; a counselor, a minister, or even a good and trusted friend can help us vent. Once we have honestly faced these stressful emotions, it's time to begin the healing process.

Next, we work on becoming willing to let all these roadblocks crumble before us. We become willing by surrendering to Spirit. We give God all of these burdens, and we trust and know that the power of Spirit will prevail. We will feel our worries and fears melt away as we continue to turn it all over to God.

To become willing is not easy. We often allow the negative thoughts of the past to reappear. This is common and nothing to be afraid of. Since we have turned this all over to God, we know we will be completely free. Doing this changes everything we think, feel, and how we live.

So we invite you to become willing to go on this journey of positive change. Letting go of problems and unpleasant issues will free you and allow you to live your True Self. This is a miracle which waits to manifest in your heart.

Peace and Love
