Whenever suffering, hardship, or difficulty arise, the soul in its darkness calls out and says, “Why me? What have I done to deserve this?”
If the soul were in a state of permanent bliss and happiness without strife or trouble, there would be no learning because these states do not allow for that. When there is peace and happiness there is just that. The purpose of the soul on the earth plane is to grow and expand, to climb even higher, and to free itself forever from the earth plane. For instance, at times in an incarnation one can experience periods of strife, loss of job, financial restrictions, or attack by those around one. When this happens, the Self is usually brought to the fore and starts to complain loudly, “Why me?” being the usual question. Everything is looked at from a negative point of view. Rarely is the experience seen as an opportunity to change, to move on from a situation that is stagnant, or to move forward to bigger and better things. Yes, all that comes in the form of difficulty is a blessing if only you can see that.
Many years ago my channel went through a very difficult situation in which she lost her business, her marriage at that time, and even found herself moving away from the country she lived in. She had been given warning through a reading that this would happen but, when it happened, she could only see the negative. Even at the airport waiting to leave the country she was still negative, saying “I can see nothing for myself in the new country.” Her negativity about the situation stopped her from seeing her future and the opportunities which were there. That is why she could not “see.” Nine months later she had a new life, a very popular radio program, a new career in journalism, and much happiness. Her journey to another country had brought her much success and joy, much more than had she stayed where she had been living.
