Did you know we’re meant to meet everyone we cross paths with? You’ve heard about there being a reason and season for people, but have you ever really thought about what that is or why?
I’ve been exploring the relationship I have with someone I’ve known for almost 20yrs. It didn’t dawn on me until recently that I should look into what we’re supposed to contribute to each other’s lives. I think the reason for this is we don’t communicate often and when we do, it’s not bad, sometimes awkward, but still amenable. I have to admit there have been a few times where I’ve thought “why don’t you just go away? This isn’t going anywhere! Ugh!”
BUT, I’ve started to gain some clarity into our lessons for each other.
Back to the reason we cross paths with others. Sometimes it’s because we need to help each other through a difficult situation. Others, it’s because we need to learn a lesson and this is the only person to help. Have you ever noticed being in a situation and help seems to come from nowhere? It’s like that person was sent specifically for that reason. Yeah, that! That’s what I’m talking about! And this person’s place in your life can be short-lived or decades.
Do you have someone in your life like this?
I know when I started getting deeper into energy work people started disappearing from my life. It was like I would shed a layer, then a person. And another layer, then another person.
I cleared my gunk, and the person attracted to that gunk disappeared. Or I realized that by healing something in myself, a lesson was learned and that person didn’t have as much of a purpose in my life. It took a while to realize that it wasn’t the other person’s fault. I got really mad at several people for up and leaving me, but realized it was my doing not theirs. I had all sorts of thoughts about abandonment and “how dare they treat me like this!” Nope, it wasn’t pretty.
James Redfield talks about this in his The Celestine Prophecy series where the main characters are “vibrating at a higher frequency” than a group of bad guys looking to hurt them. During the hunt, the bad guys are right in the same place as the characters, but can’t see them. They can’t resonate with their energy, so they’re literally invisible to them. Although this is a fictional book, the concept matches because the more clearing and healing you do for yourself, the more you will attract like and the more you will release unlike.
So, what happens when you take a step back, see someone for their core light, or a situation for the lessons it’s meant to bring? You see there aren’t ulterior motives as you once thought. And if there are, they aren’t about you at all. It’s all about the other person. It almost always is!
We are all walking on our individual paths to learn and discover what we can for ourselves, and then when we cross, that’s the time to discover the common lessons and beliefs and victories. You see the gift of each relationship and the relief knowing you have the power to learn needed lessons, while maintaining all of the things that support you and bring joy to your life.
I’m off to do some clearing, reconciling, and connecting with my friend!
