Did Life or God Let You Down Again?
You asked for help, depended on it, but you didn’t receive it. Do
you now feel betrayed by God, the Universe, or life itself?
It can be hard to find the message within trying times. Perhaps
there is something you are holding onto deep in your subconscious
that is attracting this undesirable situation. Maybe this obstacle
is something that your soul agreed to address and master in this
lifetime. It could also be that help is on the way, or everything is
working itself out in a way in which you are unable to see the
progress, but all is in divine order.
The best course of
action, when I have felt let down by life, God, or even others
around me, is to take steps to pull myself together.
step first is to acknowledge that by focusing on feelings like
betrayal, you are allowing yourself to live in a place of
victimhood. This thinking takes away your authority and ability to
be successful, placing your focus outside of yourself. Not an
empowering place to live!
After acknowledging this, it is
important to pull back your power, and take personal responsibility
for your life, experiences, and all parts of you. When you focus on
the idea that someone or something outside of you has let you down,
you’re giving away your personal power. It is important to do the
work to pull your personal energy back because it can diminish your
self-confidence, which can be limiting in so many ways.
When these feelings present themselves, spend time in a meditative
state and ask your inner-self questions. My favorite is the very
simple, “Why do I feel betrayed?” Each situation can yield different
answers to the same questions, or present a new twist on a previous
answer to help further your personal growth.
This feeling may
stem from an unhealthy pattern or childhood wound, which is
repeating now to show you that there is more work to be done in this
area. Clear and transform this old way of being into a healthier
pattern for yourself!
Maybe you aren’t really betrayed, but
need to learn how to be patient for good things to come to you. Not
everything is able to manifest into your life instantly!
you choose to accept the outcome as it is, you can relax and pursue
other interests, allowing the details to work themselves out.
Magically, as you are enjoying this new way of being, the help you
needed may appear. This brings another insight, perhaps you were not
relaxed enough to receive it before, or needed to let go of control
and just go with the natural flow of life?
interesting. Although there isn’t a ‘master plan’ or single proven
technique that will work in all situations, these simple steps will
ensure balance and perspective during difficult times:
responsibility for the situation and intend what you want. Stop
felling victimized. It may feel comfortable to hang on to, but it
is so unhealthy.
Be okay with it and move on. Let it go!
This offers an opening for something new to enter.
Explore why this pattern keeps occurring for you. It could
represent an opportunity to transform some old buried energy,
thoughts, or emotions. This is huge because if you transform it, it
will not only lighten the load for you, it will also positively
change your interactions with others and your life experiences.
You do not need to live your life feeling victimized or
betrayed. You can reclaim your personal power, esteem, and the
direction of your life. Know that you are always supported and that
asking for assistance to remove these feelings from your life is a
sign of strength. It signifies that you are ready to move forward
and want to embrace a new, more positive way of being.
