Hi everyone, Its Tannaz Hosseinpour and welcome to another short solo episode of Minutes on Growth. Yesterday a close friend of mine called me and in the middle of our conversation she said something that made me pause and think. She had this belief that as a result of having so many blessings in her life, god was sending painful emotions and circumstances to her to balance out the scales. This belief of hers made me think a lot about all the other beliefs that we carry within us about pain and suffering.
From a spiritual perspective, pain and suffering is always looked upon as a blessing.
The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches us that in order to remove pain and suffering from the world, all we need to do is remove pain and suffering from one person. And in order to do that, we need to have experienced the pain ourself. When we go through things, our soul gets qualified to help other people in those exact same areas. When we feel our own pain, we can then help others heal. So our pain isn’t here so that we suffer or as a form of punishment, but rather it’s a gift to heal other people.
Ever heard of the expression, turn your mess into a message? There are 7 billion people on this planet, and while no one has experienced the exact same journey as you, many have experienced similar pains. As a result of your journey, you have experienced many insights, cultivated many talents that you are now responsible to share with the world.
When we share our story, transformation occurs. When we share our pain with the world, healing happens.
However often times, we wait until the mess is finished to turn it into a message. Who said that you can’t heal yourself and other simultaneously? Use your pain to elevate not only your level of consciousness, but the collective consciousness as well.
When you’re feeling pain, be thankful, because you now know that with awareness something great is going to come out of it.
Have you ever sat down and thought about some of the pains you’ve experienced in the past, and how as a result of them, your journey in life changed for the better?
As a child my father always told me that our life is like a coil spring. When we are experiencing pain, we get compressed to our lowest point. But that just means that once we’re through with it, we’re going to jump up to our highest point. That’s how coil springs work right? This belief has made me embrace pain because I now believe that everything in life is divinely orchestrated for your highest good.
Deepak Chopra always says that all great things are preceded by chaos.
So today embrace the chaos. Embrace the pain. And allow greatness to come out of it. Allow growth to come out of it. Allow healing to come out of it. Allow elevated awareness and consciousness to come out of it.
Sending you love – Thank you for listening, speak soon.
