Frustration Is A Gift?
Here and there, do you feel that you life just not what you envisioned it would be at this point?
Is there someone who keeps draining you emotionally - such as your child or partner - and you feel like you can't do anything?
Finding it difficult to feel heard at home, work or elsewhere when you try to speak up for yourself - or perhaps you're even afraid to open up at all?
If so, then my guess is that you could easily admit that you are feeling "Frustrated" with how things are going for you.
You may even grit your teeth when people say "Hi! How are you?" - saying "Fine, thank you." even though that is a lie...
What I want to introduce you to this week is the idea of a Dark Gift being sent on purpose to you from the Energy / Spirit / Universe in your life.
Spirit is always sends us gifts, but often people forget that spiritual health is not just about "love and light" and woo and froo-froo things.
You are a balanced being, and Spirit knows that, so sometimes to help you learn a specific lesson, Spirit will send what I call a "Dark Gift" into your life to help you understand and move on.
Feeling frustration is a good example of a Dark Gift.
Why, you ask? Because this feeling is a signal to a deeper issue, and you feel "frustration" only during times when the Energy is trying to show you where to heal yourself.
When you are frustrated, you are, deep down, Angry. Did you know that you are actually Angry? Are you even allowed to be Angry?
Anger - when misdirected and unacknowledged - is destructive and inflammatory. But when harnessed and honored, can be quite productive and even, beautiful.
Know this: Frustration is your training partner and a doorway for spiritual practice. #BK2YS
There is always light to be found in the darkness, but you have to be ready to reframe negative situations by looking for the "Dark Gift" and assess what are you learning.
- Perhaps in being angry at your child, you still harbor anger toward your parents from your own childhood. #BK2YS
- Perhaps in being angry with your partner, you are still harboring hurt and abuse from a previous relationship. #BK2YS
- Or perhaps in being angry at work, you are stuffing down your heart's desire to do more than just this 9-5 grind in life. Your spirit remembers your dream. #BK2YS
Have a hit a vein, yet? There will be more coming up in the next few weeks about "Dark Gifts" from the Energy.
