You feel your parents did not give you what you needed? Could there be another way to see this? A higher way? The soul knows that all interactions are gifts. It is through relationships that you grow … not only in learning who you are at the deepest level, but in expressing Love more fully … the unconditional kind. You did not receive unconditional love? Now you know how this feels. Now, perhaps, you feel more inclined to give this unconditional kind to others. This is but one example of how to see the past for the gift it is, for it has brought you to this now-moment. Now what will you do with this most golden opportunity?
You are so very loved.
The gifts from my parents so often seemed a mountain range away from where i wanted to be. Accepting where i in fact was, took its toll on my dreams but dreams to me where an illusion i did not know how to reach, so my acceptance of reality came all too easy. Suddenly some people came into my life that saw a portion of the dreams as i had. Who were these people? All i could see is that they knew no more than i as to reaching illusions. I did not try to convince them of their illusions: i only accepted them as illusions. My life went well enough, in enough lessons to learn, still never realizing the illusions could be manifest. I still didn’t know how, …yet there the illusions waited.
Distant aims were never in my repertoire because i never knew how to put them there. Seems silly and aimless now But it wasn’t silly. Nor was i totally void of aims. Just the aims were not thought of as illusions. You know what thoughts sometimes do… …and don’t do. The hairline of difference stretches into highways.
This is so valuable and important to remember! I’m a survivor of an emotionally and mentally abusive childhood, to the point where I believed that my parents despised me, that I was hopelessly flawed, and that I was unwanted and unwelcome, not just in my own family, but on the planet, itself. After 20 years of therapy and years of following the Abraham-Hicks material, I’m living a happy life, even though at times I get sucked back into the “I’m totally unworthy” mindset. That’s when instruction like this becomes crucial. It reminds me that past experiences were not random tragic accidents. There was purpose to them, and how can I best move forward in that purpose? (In fact, I strongly suspect that I knew how awful my childhood would be before I incarnated, and probably said, “Bring it on. I know they won’t break me.”) I’m so delighted to have found Suzanne and Sanaya. This is the most loving, non-judgemental, broad-visioned life instruction I’ve ever found. Thank you so very much!
As I aged in years (I’m now 87) I’ve grown more understanding of the love my parents had for me, my mother especially. Her love was an unconditional deep love, for which I am most grateful. It took me a long time to appreciate my father’s love and what he did for and with me. For many years I felt I didn’t really have a father but now I realize he did the best he could given his own family background and life situation.
Great message Suzanne! You wisdom as always inspires and directs. Sending you love you way from my heart to yours.
