No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it. We must learn to see the world anew.”
– Albert Einstein
Einstein was a pretty smart guy as we all know, and while I may not be able to understand some of the mathematical equations he came up with, I do understand this quote and believe it to be absolutely true!
Though it may not be apparent at first, we create “problems” as learning opportunities. No, not consciously perhaps – but our Higher Consciousness is always looking for ways to assist us in our development and expansion while we are here on the planet – that’s what we signed up for if you buy the theory that we chose to come down here into a physical existence.
So our Higher Consciousness co-creates the problem aka learning opportunity but then most often, our ego grabs hold of it like a hungry dog with a bone! Next thing we know the problem is eating away at us and we’ve completely lost sight of the fact that it is a learning/growth opportunity!
The other thing we tend to lose sight of when we are stuck in a problem is that there is ALWAYS a solution. I know you may be saying “but Steph – come on now – some problems are unresolvable – like death or taxes!”
And I agree – that on the PHYSICAL level, there ARE some problems that are not resolvable. But the key words in that sentence are “on the PHYSICAL level.“ Because on a spiritual and emotional level, even death and taxes can be overcome but they do require, as Einstein stated, that “we must learn to see the world anew.”
Simply re-languaging the word “problem” into “learning opportunity” already lifts it to a new level of consciousness doesn’t it? Because in every problem, there IS a learning opportunity – a chance for us to see the situation through a different set of glasses – and yes – I suggest you choose the rose-colored ones!
There IS a blessing in death and in paying taxes if you choose to change your perspective. Death can be seen as a new beginning, a new opportunity, a return to your Divine Source Energy. It is an opportunity for your Soul to have expanded by having a physical incarnation and it is also an opportunity for your Soul to return to be of service in other ways.
And there are blessings in paying taxes too! The Law of Circulation states that all things in the universe are always flowing in circulation at an ever expanding rate. What you give to one person, you will receive back from a different source, so you don’t have to give with the expectation of receiving back from the same person you give to. Just know that what you give will always be returned to you multiplied from other sources. It works according to the law of cause and effect where the universe always mirrors back to you whatever you do. So one way or another, the energy of the money you pay in taxes will be returned to you!
Next time a “problem” comes your way – take a few deep breaths and then go find your rose-colored glasses! Ask yourself – what learning opportunity is in this for me? How can I see this issue differently? What is the blessing in this situation?
And if you need a little help with that – well – that’s what I’m here for! To help you change your perspective, find the blessings and move joyfully and intentionally forward.
