This past year we’ve spent so much time either WITH our loved ones or without. And many of us have lost a family member. I’ve not been with my father in 17 months and that’s the longest we’ve ever gone. I was going to be visiting him about a year ago when the virus struck.
One of the MOST distressing thoughts we have in our human experience is the thought of being separated from the people we Love – and we often impose it on ourselves.
Because people don’t do what we wish and think they should do, we think that someone doesn’t Love us and therefore we need to walk away from them, cut them out of our life, and end the relationships. Ugh. This kind of thinking causes much distress. And it’s so common.
It’s all part of the ego theme and pattern of separation from Love showing up in our mind and then in our relationships. If we believe it’s real, we start to see separation and lack all over the place.
Many people ask me about how to know when it’s time to end a relationship. This is something that comes up a lot around the holiday time of year.
I’ve learned this:
ALL of our relationships are eternal because we are eternal beings.
And, because we’re One with everyone, there’s no way to really end them.
That would only be something that we could experience in our identification with a false, separate self.
Our relationships don’t have an end, and in truth, they don’t have a beginning.
We are One, together, eternally.
Given these basic facts, trying to end a relationship or even worrying about the end of a relationship, isn’t helpful or productive.
Instead, we focus our mental and emotional energy on simply being loving. We give the management of our relationships to the Higher Holy Spirit Self and look for the loving choices. This is what works and heals.
There are times when our relationships seem to ebb. The tide seems to go out. Like they say, “people are in our life for a season or a reason.” Instead of grasping, we can allow the ebb and flow of the appearance and hold in our heart that the ideal is unfolding and making itself known. We can think we know what the ideal is, but if we’re not in Joy, then we don’t know, and we’re imagining something less than perfect.
It’s not so easy to give the Higher Holy Spirit Self control of our relationships when we cling to believing we know how things should be. They may shift and change in ways that the ego does not like at all. And in this we can have a HUGE healing.
All healing is welcome.
I am so grateful I can choose healing.
I am so grateful I can give the heavy lifting of figuring out HOW to make it happen to the Higher Holy Spirit Self.
I’m so grateful I can allow the healing and set myself free!
Prayer works! Joining together in prayer for our healing, for the active practice of joining with Spirit, and allowing my healing is precisely why every day I write inspiration and record a prayer to go with it. You can join me in cultivating the willingness that raises us ALL up so we can be truly helpful in this world. If you’re interested in deepening your understanding of how to use Prayer, join my Prayer Power class we begin on April 12.
Last time I offered this class, I received a beautiful testimonial from Mary Vranicar, Former Unity Prayer Chaplain and Unity Prayer Team “Jennifer’s Prayer Power class has enhanced my prayer experience exponentially! I understand and appreciate praying at a new level now. She provides tools for more effective prayer, which become tools for more successful living. Try it – you’ll like it!”
What I love about prayer as a power tool is that it assists us in QUICKLY liberating from a sense of helplessness. In times like these, when it seems like the whole world has gone nuts, our prayers are a healing balm in a fitful world. When we learn that our prayers are powerful, we understand that there is one authority, and that is Spirit. We’re part of God. And the Power of God is the Power of Love within us. Let’s tap into it to transform our lives!
