Life is a school; experience our teacher. Some lessons are harder than others. Lessons that remain unlearned will present themselves over and over until we “get it”.
A practicing student of life, I’m still brought to my knees with each new understanding of a hard lesson.
What are Hard Lessons?
Hard lesson present themselves for understanding when –
life sucker-punches your gut…
time seems suspended…
intuition whispers “this or something like it happened before and is happening again”…
one experience rewinds in your consciousness like unfinished business.
What is the Value of Hard Lessons?
Hard lessons reveal Truth and reward us with indescribable inner-peace.
We experience a flash of Most High in our consciousness, which fills us with humbleness.
How do we Learn Hard Lessons?
When we seek revelation of Truth, we have arrived at the place where our search must be conducted by living life. Books and seminars are a good place to start seeking; teachers and mentors are good, but you must learn Hard Lessons for yourself.
Personal Journal Assignment – Hard Lessons
Get quiet and ponder on one piece of unfinished business.
Do you hold a lasting resentment for somebody?
Has someone hurt you on a soul level?
Is there a person from your past you absolutely refuse to forgive?
Is there a facet of yourself you absolutely refuse to forgive?
Has a friend betrayed you?
Were you/are you involved in a toxic relationship?
Has a loved one left through death, divorce or disinterest?
In your personal journal, jot life experiences concerning one of the above questions, or a pose a hard question of your own. When and how did Spirit present the Hard Lesson? Begin to remember specific events.
Allow healing words to flow until you have purged the Hard Lesson out of your unconscious mind onto the paper.
Now, be still and let Spirit work.
Spirit will search far below your conscious mind and root-out latent trauma; Spirit will bring Hard Lessons into conscious light of your understanding.
When you’re ready, end the personal journal session with a prayer, affirmation or just state, “And so it is.”
Over the next seven days, return to your Personal Journal and note new insights or understandings.
Until you learn the particular Hard Lesson you are practicing, it will present itself again and again in your everyday reality.
