Life, dear ones, will have its challenges. You spill your milk. The refrigerator breaks. You stub your toe, or more seriously lose a job or a loved one. Elements of your dream here upon the earth shift and change. The constant behind and beneath all things, however, is and always will be, love.
In even your deepest challenges you can find the frequency of love. If you have deep debt, you can love the food upon your table today. You can love the people in your life. You can love the blue sky and the scent of your spring flowers. If you have suffered a devastating loss of someone in your life, you can still find love in all of those who still surround you, in the arms of God in prayer and meditation and from your angels – and even your dearly departed loved ones – if you are willing to sit, breath, and receive. If you have pain, you can see love in your own heart’s willingness to persevere.
The reason challenge and loss hurts so much is that it is perceived as a loss of love. In truth dear ones, love lives! Love lives in every challenge and every inconvenience. Love waits for you on the other side of every loss. Love lives beyond death. Love lives in every particle and manifestation of life. Love lives … inside of you.
You cannot ever lose love. You simply tune into it, or not.
It is all too human when you face challenge or loss to feel a loss of love. Your life has to change. You will have to work harder to find the frequency of love. It is easy to feel the energy of love when life flows smoothly. It takes more work to find it again amidst the chaos. It is easy to feel the frequency of love with a loved one, and much more difficult to find it if they leave. Nonetheless you can discover the One love anywhere, indeed everywhere, even when you feel challenged, hurt, or abandoned. Love will never leave you. It cannot.
Suppose your car breaks and you have to wait all day for the repair. Perhaps love can be found in the form of a kind person to speak with while you wait, or from inspiration that comes while reading that book you’ve been putting off. Perhaps the love will appear in the form of having to decline other commitments that you didn’t really want to do anyway. Maybe love appears because your car broke down in a safe place and your life was spared due to the repair… Maybe love appears within your own heart as you realize that there is a purpose to all things.
Suppose you lose a loved one. Maybe this is the point in your soul’s eternal evolution where you are going to learn to make contact across the “veil” and once and for all banish the notion of death being the end. Maybe it is a time when you will grieve deeply and be inspired to do great good in the world as a result of the human tragedy. Maybe it is your soul’s time to learn to love yourself instead of always caring for others. Even in spite of the grief and pain, love is waiting to be revealed and to heal you.
In all things, dear one, there is love. Even in your human challenges, love is waiting to be revealed. Allow yourself your very human feelings first. Love yourself through them.
Then, ask a potentially life changing question,“Love, how are you trying to reveal yourself more deeply in my life as a result of this challenge?
Dear ones, love waits for you to discover its Presence. It is an energy frequency that you can find no matter what life presents. Look for love in easy times and, especially, in your challenging times. “Seek and ye shall find. Knock and the door shall be opened.” Look for love, and your life will be an experience of love no matter what the outer world presents.
