I was looking at my peace lily today and I remembered how concerned I was that this huge, beautiful plant would handle the trip to my new home. I drove while it sat 13 hours in the front seat beside me. When I got here, it was all stressed out and completely laying down over the sides of the container. I watered it in the shower, a long, soaking rain and after an hour it stood tall again. Then a week later, it blessed me with the most beautiful large flowers I had seen from this plant. I asked the Angels why the flowers were more beautiful and larger now than they were without the stress of the move. They said that the plant, like us, blossom when we go through stressful periods. I looked back at my life and did recognize that stressful situations in my life also caused me to spiritually grow quickly. Sort of like spiritual growth spurts. That was then.

Now the Angels tell us that we don’t have to go through these chaotic situations to grow. Yes, we can choose to have peace in pieces of time, but we don’t have to. Our spiritual growth is occurring in amazing, under the surface ways. We can choose to watch situations occur, keeping in mind what is our stuff and what is everyone else’s stuff. We can continue to deal with our stuff, which we have all the spiritual tools to handle. But we can also choose to step into someone else’s stuff, which can make our life a mess. This is because we don’t always know what that person’s soul’s path is. They may want or need to go through something that we would want the person to avoid. We are no longer equipped in this higher dimensional life that we are living to make those decisions for someone else. So what ends up happening is our life becomes out of control, un-peaceful, unhappy, etc.
So what do we do to continue to grow spiritually but stay on an easy, peaceful, loving path? Remember to take your spiritual shower by connecting to your Angels/Soul/Spirit on a regular basis. Ask questions about yourself. Ask for guidance, assistance, protection, healing, etc. Ask what you feel you need to so that you can put the pieces to your soul’s life puzzle together. This will assure your continued growth. Don’t be concerned if you can’t see the effects of that growth right now. The situations on the Earth are making that a bit hard to see. Just believe and know that you are making progress every day. And if you ever start to feel your life out of control, sit down and make a list of the things in your life that you feel are out of control. After you are done, look at the list and see how many things are actually yours. Then you can make a decision if you want to stay involved in all of the other things of other people that are causing your life and energy to be chaotic. For me, I am choosing peace in my life and allowing others to make their own choices even if they are different from what I would choose for them. The Angels have taught me it is the highest way to love one another.
Many Blessings of Peace ~ Christina
