Spiritual growth does not mean that you’ll be perfect, not by a long shot. The goal isn’t perfection; it’s consciousness- in each and every interaction with yourself, and others. It’s about learning more deeply who you are, accepting both your light and your dark, and ultimately, being more of your light.
Yes, you’ll still have dark. You’re human! Helloooooo!! You are not God. You cannot save anyone nor can you be all knowing. You came here to learn and stretch and grow. Some days are going to be hard. Some days you might want to climb into bed and hide. That’s OK, go ahead and do it. Just don’t judge yourself for it and when you do it, do it fully so you can come out the other side. If you stay dark for too long, then you run the risk of wallowing in it and your negative ego will try to keep you there, versus in solution. Same for when you feel intense rage/sadness/blame etc., go into it fully and completely in order to move through to the other side.
Because it is about the other side: the light, the love, and the fun. Growth doesn’t have to be painful and hard; you can choose to move through your lessons with ease and joy. You can learn as much through the light as through the dark, it’s just that some are convinced growth needs to be difficult. It doesn’t have to be.
Focus on your light, focus on being as conscious as you can be, and do not judge, or beat yourself up, during rough times. They will pass, they always do. Love yourself through all of it. After all, the more you love yourself, all parts of yourself, the more empowered you are, and the more unstoppable you’ll be in the world.
Me, Tina Germain, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
