Let's back up a bit and talk about what a life lesson is and how it shows up. Right before we get ready to incarnate, our soul chooses some aspect of life that we want to experience and learn about - our primary life lesson - as well as one or two secondary lessons. As we go about our life, we naturally gravitate towards situations that will help us learn these lessons. If you ever feel like you're reliving the same experience over and over again - you probably have a life lesson coming into play. Say, for example, if your best laid plans seem to continuously get derailed (*cough* flexibility! *cough, cough*).
Sometimes life lessons can be frustrating or heart-breaking, so it's a little crazy to think that our soul chose to experience it. Spiritual growth - it's not for the faint of heart. And, like it or not, in order to truly learn a lesson we have to experience all sides of it. To understand flexibility, I need to experience situations that require me to be flexible. I need to experience rigidity, and I need to understand how going with the flow can be a positive AND how it can be negative. If I come up against a situation requiring flexibility, what happens if I go with the flow? How does that feel? What does it gain me? What happens if I'm rigid? If I fight it? How does that feel? It's all part of the spiritual growth game - we experience, we learn, we evolve. It can be hard and it can be messy - but when we work through it, oh man, we can gain so much.
You might be thinking "That's great and all, but how can knowing our life lessons help us?" There are a couple ways, actually.
This article has mostly looked at the challenging aspects of a life lesson, but life lessons aren't always hard or unpleasant. Remember, to truly learn a lesson, we have to experience all sides of it, and that includes the positives!
Are you interested in learning about the life lessons you've chosen? If so, there are two ways you can find out. First, if you feel connected to your spirit guides, you can always ask them. They are there to help us, after all! Otherwise, I would be happy to help you learn about your life lessons (among other things!) in my Soul Gifts Akashic Records reading, which you can learn about here. Do you know what your life lessons are? If so, comment below! I'd love to hear how they've shaped your experiences.
Hi there - I'm Mandy. I've been told by tons of people I need to write - that part of my soul's purpose is to write. I didn't start out wanting to write a blog. But if you're here, it means that you're on a spiritual path. And you've probably heard that if you're supposed to do something, you'll get tons of signs, over and over again. I'm on about my 20th sign that I'm supposed to write, so here I am! Thanks for joining me.
