It’s very common for people to go through a period of despair on the way to rising up out of the ego’s quagmire. I certainly did. Despair is a systemic hopelessness.

When we believe many of the ego thoughts and move into a place of feeling that there’s no hope for us then despair is quick to follow. It feels natural, in a way.

If we believe the insanity of the ego we’ll feel trapped.
If we feel trapped without a way out, then we’re going to feel despair.

We can actually choose not just to be hopeful, but to be visionary. We can hold a vision of Love for our lives. Being willing to hold a vision can feel impossible when we’re hopeless. I get that.

We don’t have to have a vision of total transformation, but we can. We can just have a vision for small things that we enjoy to keep encouraging us.

Having a vision of even a small bit of happiness can make a huge difference in our life.

Spirit is such a powerful thing – and we can let it teach us how to heal the despair by giving it to Spirit for healing.

A willingness to be hopeful even about something small – like being hopeful about having your favorite ice cream or watching your favorite tv show can be transformative.

Energetically, being hopeful about ANYTHING can be life sustaining. I find it’s very helpful to ask for a sign that we’re on the right path!

We don’t have to live in despair, it’s a choice. We may not know how to find the choice, but Spirit does. Let’s give Spirit the heavy lifting of removing our despair and pointing the way. Let’s ask for a sign today!

Sometimes a cat video can really help lift our hearts. This is my favorite cat video – take a look – it’s only 2 minutes. Consider bookmarking it in your browser to watch when you’re feeling hopeless. May this precious cat’s experience be a blessing in your life.
