Crisis, like a nightmare, is only as bad as it is perceived to be and often contains important life-saving information presented in a manner that is impossible to ignore. These are pearls of wisdom from the sands of time that worked their way beneath the layers of life. Wear your pearls with pride. They are a commodity.
My favorite mantra is, “Mind over matter.” If you don’t mind it (embrace it in consciousness) then it won’t matter (manifest). Perception directly affects the outcome of a life challenge. We do not see things as they are, but rather as we are. My life challenge and Ah-ha moment all rolled up into one big Wake-up call was overcoming breast cancer three times.
According to the United States Cancer Statistics (USCS) the number of adults who have ever been diagnosed with cancer is 18.6 million and currently 2.6 million women are living beyond breast cancer. Many are Thrivers who recognize death but choose to celebrate life.
Although breast cancer can be the vehicle to deliver a message of thriving, any personal pearl of wisdom can help to overcome your life crisis.
People eager to be helpful can offer their keys as answers. They may be right. But, for whose question? Having a key is only half the solution. Finding the correct lock to the corresponding door is a big step.
The perfect Master Key that fits all your locked doors is closer than you may imagine. So, who are you?!
Step 5: Look in the mirror. Reconnect through the windows of your soul; your eyes.
Mirror therapy can help you discover and embrace yourself. No one knows you better than you know yourself. You have all the questions and all the answers you will ever need. Access them through dreams, prayers and meditations. Connect with your inner-selves; your Physician-within and your Eternal Teacher-within. You are made up of more than id, ego and super-ego. Your Eternal Teacher exists beyond the physical body.
Our Eternal Teacher (ET) contains innate information that allows us to connect with Guardian Angels and Spirit Guides during times of strife. Dreams are the phone line by which our ET phones home. Someone always answers the call. Do you listen? A dream journal can help.
Step 6: A dream journal beside your bed can help you connect with yourself and your guided information.
The ancient writing of the Talmud from the 2nd -3rd century BC states, “A dream not interpreted is like a letter to the self unread.” Ding, ding! You got mail.
Step 7: Know Thyself.
Yes! Discover yourself and find your answer. You are the key and the lock you seek. Open your door to endless information
