“Does The Universe Test Us?” 10 Keys To The Truth Of Spiritual Lessons
“Why Isn’t The Universe Fixing XYZ?” The Mirror Of Reality – Father Figures, The Truth About Divine Timing And The New Era Of Light…
We’ve been in such a challenging time as a society this year, and many are asking questions around why this is allowed to happen. If the universe loves us, if there are benevolent guides working to help us, why are they letting this happen?
So today I wanted to explore this further. Because the situation is often very different than how it seems to our human perspective. It is true that the universe loves us, is trying to help us.
But we are not always aligned with and open to that. Just like you can dial someone’s number, it doesn’t guarantee they will pick up!
We are always receiving guidance to be happy, well, loved, harmonious – as a society and as individuals. But we often make choices that cause issues, that go against that guidance…
The Truth About Who Is Testing You…
The truth is, WE are the ones who test ourselves and “teach ourselves lessons” more than anything. In essence, the universe is always working to bring us love and support – it doesn’t “bring us” bad things out of an ulterior motive. The universe is pure love consciousness.
However, WE and OUR SYSTEM can be deflecting love and positivity, and therefore we attract challenges and experiences that may seem like “lessons” – because in some way yes, they do show up our inner issues so we can heal.
But it’s not the universe deliberately doing this as if we’re a naughty child in school being made to stop misbehaving… Really, it’s all signal and response. Cause and effect. Both our society and our individual system has a “vibrational signature” which attracts back what is a “match” with it. It’s a “neutral” process.
So today I’m sharing with you:
Spiritual Lessons: 10 Keys To What’s Really Going On When It Feels Like The Universe Is Testing Us!
#1 Ancient Beliefs – Disempowerment
There are so many interesting facets to this question but the most important and noticeable thing is how old this line of thinking is – it is an ancient belief from the monotheistic religions, carried through to otherwise modern spirituality circles.
The belief that there is someone or something out there with lessons for us is something most of us are taught in some way in life. And it is a very common perception among those interested in spirituality.
I notice that in many spiritual and religious traditions and in spiritual communities online we can see a clear line of thinking that personifies the universe (and not always positively), much like the monotheistic religions do.
You can probably see that this is a very human-centric way of looking at the universe. That there is a “great parent” out there ruling the show, while we “children” don’t have responsibility for ourselves or our actions… And that we’re being punished if we don’t “behave well”.
In this era of awakening (11:11 remember who you are) we are rising into a higher state of awareness and empowerment as souls. We’re realizing we are co-creators, and our happiest and “best life” happens when we take responsibility and consciously use our choices and abilities to affect reality and make our dreams come true.
#2 What Divine Timing Really Is
Religion can be positive and helpful for your journey if you believe that the Universe or God is benevolent and helpful and kind. But if you’ve taken on beliefs that God is demanding or the Universe puts you through difficult lessons and suffering in order to learn humility and so on, it can create a lot of pain …
The latter type of belief is where the idea of people being put through tests fits in. Often we read that things will happen in “divine time” and that we’re not yet ready.
This is a highly common misunderstanding – I often read people telling each other “we just have to be patient until the divine timing happens”.
But the truth is, the universe doesn’t hold us back from our desires!
It’s all about energy and alignment. Divine Timing is really the time when the energies are in alignment. When we are a match to it, so it can enter our reality. (Read more about how this works here)
It’s not that someone out there has a schedule for us and we may not be ready because they decide it to be so. It’s the fact that our energy is not yet in alignment with what we desire…That’s what Divine Timing means – it’s that the energies are a match.
The amazing thing is, we don’t have to sit on the sidelines and wait. We can make “divine timing” happen more quickly – and we are being encouraged to do so, to take an active part in our lives to make our dreams happen.
This is the age of self empowerment – where we are all being woken up to our own inner light. Not like times past when people were downtrodden and unable to affect their reality.
In the new energy shift on earth, you yourself can speed up your process by lifting into a higher vibration and clearing blocks that might otherwise get in the way of you having your desires. (I help you with this in the Free Heart Activation Session here)
#3 Nothing Can Stop Us
So really if there is a test on this journey, it is for us to realize that we are the masters of our own existence and that no one else can prevent us from doing, being or having what we desire to create. We are co-creators of our journey.
We are so much more in charge than we tend to think.
Thinking that we’re small tends to be because we identify with our human bodies. But the spirit is unlimited. Energy, consciousness has no bounds.
#4 Universal Laws
The universe predominately operates on energetic laws – it certainly does not have a malicious or demanding series of tests for us to overcome so that our lives are filled with suffering to overcome.
If anyone is making you learn lessons, it is you and your own soul, who desired to evolve and develop as much as possible on your journey, and get over any past negativity you have been carrying around.
#5 Magnetizing Your Desires
There are many energetic laws in operation in the universe, but the biggest and most noticeable one is that “like attracts like”.
Let me explain: We and everything around us are energy, tiny particles making up what we perceive as solid objects. But nothing is actually solid – it consists of microscopic particles and atoms vibrating energetically. This is scientific fact, and you can look up the latest research in quantum physics to check if you want.
So the law of “like attracts like”, or more famously “the law of attraction” means that the energy and expectations you send out (the vibrational frequency you’re in) puts you in alignment with drawing like things and experiences to you.
As within, so without. As above, so below.
So on the metaphysical plane if you have a predominately negative worldview that “life is hard”, that is what you’re shaping your energy to allow in and attract more of.
So what seems like a “lesson” is merely the outer visible noticeable result of your inner alignment.
#6 Using Energy to Our Advantage
Like with an old fashioned radio, you tune into a particular station by being in a particular frame of mind and emotion. So you can actually change your energy to shift the channel from “fear and lack” to “love and joy”.
This is why working on our energy is so important on the spiritual journey. If we have the preset that “love hurts” or that “life is hard”, this is the signal we’re emitting into the universe and will be attracting.
It is really important to know that these laws of energy operate completely “neutrally”, like gravity. There is no one controlling gravity and ensuring you comply with it, it just IS.
As a collective, as society, we also can shift our collective mindset, discourse and organizational structures to step into greater harmony and positivity – and reap amazing outer results.
#7 We Make Our Own Lessons
So when we attract challenges and hard lessons to learn on our journey it is overwhelmingly because our energy is in alignment with it. Often it’s due to core negative beliefs, but it can also be due to unhealed karmic wounds buried deeply in our energy field that keep emitting energies of trauma out into the universe.
In this way, you could describe a challenge as a “lesson” because if you for example have trauma related to abandonment and you keep attracting this over and over, you are given the opportunity to realize what your wound is so you can heal it and move on.
When we heal karmic and energetic wounds, we stop emitting the negative frequency into the universe, and we therefore stop attracting “lessons” over and over.
In some spiritual circles this would be referred to as “releasing the lesson” or “learning the lesson” but truly it’s due to the fact that we’ve stopped emitting the energy frequency that kept us in a loop of attracting negativity over and over.
#8 What About Your Father?
Here on earth, our feelings about the universe and our views of God or source consciousness are very closely linked to our relationship to the father figure in our lives growing up.
This can be an eye-opener to consider: What was your father like when you were little?
Was he involved in your life? Was he dependable and always helped you and made you feel taken care of and safe? Or was he himself emotionally wounded and distant? Was he absent? Was he loving and generous or was he demanding and withholding of love?
Now compare with your view of God or Source or the universe.
(I help you with this in the Love Blueprint Coaching Program here)
Religion can actually be a help for people in this regard, as it can provide a new template for a loving father figure. However we are often presented with ideas of an easily angered and demanding God/collective Father figure.
In reality we are the ones manifesting these traits in our interaction with the universe and the world around us – we keep the energetic realm mirroring back to us any positivity or negativity in accordance with what we expect.
Our reality is always in some way a mirror to our inner state.
#9 DIY Role Models to Fuel Your Journey
This has been one of the biggest “lessons” on my own journey, to recognize that our childhood patterns and relationships keep us locked in skewed perceptions of the world around us – and thereby attracting what often doesn’t serve us. It’s why I created the Free Heart Activation Session here.
So to open up your journey to increased abundance and love, I would suggest examining this and seeing where there may be buried wounds attracting negativity.
Creating or choosing your own new authority figure role model can be an excellent tool if you can’t find one in life.
Is there a particular author or teacher or public speaker or celebrity who makes you feel positively inspired and safe? I would suggest experimenting with making this your new positive blueprint… As a society, do we have GOALS of what our ideal state would look like, and are we working to create systems to reach that state? Or are we focused mainly on what we want to avoid, and stuck in a state of thinking nothing can change?
Remember that there is always guidance and help around us, to assist us in using the laws of energy to our advantage, stir us to raise our vibrations and help us create our desires. You can always ask for help and support, and you have a team ready to assist you in any way possible.
#10 It’s all Rigged in Our Favor!
It helps to shift your thinking to see the universe as always working in our favor – everything is rigged to your advantage.
1) If wounds come up to be healed, it is so that we can clear the negativity, shift our approach and move on in increased joy.
2) If we encounter challenges, they are showing us that we’re energetically attracting them and would benefit from adjusting our beliefs, energy and karma. It all helps and serves us.
Above all, know that you are powerful and that you have the ability to create the life you desire. There is no destiny that can or will force you to be unhappy or alone for life! I promise.
Adjust your energy, and you can make anything happen!
Remember “as within, so without”. I believe in you!
So what seeming “lessons” can you now see might be caused by your OWN system, childhood experiences and dynamics from the past?
What in SOCIETY can you see, is “us” teaching “ourselves” a lesson so we can learn and grow?
