HOW CAN I COPE WITH ALL THE STRESS IN MY LIFE?
Diana asks: “How can I cope with all the stress in my life? I have three children under three- years old; a very responsible job; and I commute three times a week to attend University for a degree on Tourism Management. But, my mind is so full, that I don’t sleep very well. Is there any way that I can get more rest in order to handle this stress due to my important responsibilities?”
Oh my Holy Spirit! I suggested that Diana talk directly to you, Innerly, as she goes through her days and nights. What can You tell her about getting through her life more easily?
“Oh, My Linda Layli, Layli Linda! We cannot imagine Ourselves down there, dealing with the things that you, Earthlings, have to deal with! We cannot tell Diana exactly what to do because life is not standard for each and every human being. So, here’s what I would suggest: Take Us, Who reside Up Here, into her daily equation. As you, yourself, realize, this doesn’t make the work simply disappear. And, you don’t always get an unbroken night’s sleep, either.
But, she will be forging a conversational relationship with Me and with The Great Creative Force (God), so that We are very invested in her problems and goals and We can do things to help life move along more easily.
Because of Free Will, We can’t necessarily force anybody not to stand in her way or create problems that she has to solve; and We may end up talking to her at night and keeping her awake, but that would be more pleasant than hearing her mind worry one point to pieces.”
Linda: Diana, I know what you are describing, because if I stay awake mulling over my duties or schedule, nowadays, it’s often actually coming from Them, making sure that I don’t forget “Our” to-do list and how we will tackle it in the morning. Oh my Holy Spirit, will You explain why You said that You can’t imagine Yourself living on Earth? Why not?
“Religions have downplayed this point for so long. Life on Earth is a Hell Realm! It is not designed to help a human being advance spiritually. It is designed to break a human being, if possible! Every one of you taking this journey through a material planet, such as Earth, has signed up for a Navy Seals Training Course and you are all put through the ropes.
The only way it gets easier and is at all doable, is when you have developed your superior skills and spiritual muscles to allow you to get through this course alive. Many do not make it to adulthood. Though, no one can judge an outcome by the age of death. Some young ones ace their tests early and are excused from more years of testing once they have proved themselves.”
Linda: Life can throw lots of curved balls at us, can’t it? Would You explain why You call Earth a Hell Realm? Have we all, here, “been sent to Hell” for punishment?
“N.O! It’s very different from what you’ve been taught. This is not a punishment, at all! It’s a place where choices must be made and they are not always easy to carry out; or they don’t always deliver your expected results. Earth provides a material realm, a tangible realm, that is much more difficult to influence than these Higher Planes of Existence, where things can be influenced with words, intentions and creative imagination. Your surroundings will be more malleable when you arrive in the Upper Levels.
Earth Life is a big test, but that doesn’t mean that you will be unhappy here. Part of the test is whether you choose to be happy or sad, as you work your way through your assorted tasks, throughout life.
We want you to learn the association between “attitude” and “results” while you live in a place where that isn’t always clear. You see, Up Here, Our ideas create their results almost immediately. We can say “Be!” and then, it IS! That correlation isn’t as obvious in a material plane but it is still the underlying principle.
“You get what you pray for.” is often spoken, derogatorily, after one’s greatest fears materialize.”
Linda: Then, are You saying that an optimist bounces through a swampy life, but focuses on butterflies; while a pessimist grouses about the lack of dry walkways and comfortable hotels?
“So many people worry about their future; when the present moment is all that anybody has. The details in life teach the babies how to walk, and then, to run…. and finally, to dance! The fact that you are keeping up with things, Diana, means that these functions are becoming easier for you. And then, you will take on new challenges and suddenly start working on a new set of muscles.
You are already dancing with most of it and your problem really seems to be that your mind doesn’t know how to get off the dance floor when the band goes home for the night.
Remember when you first learned how to dance? You watched your feet, you counted the steps, you tripped on your partner’s toes! But, after enough practice, something magical happened. The music took over! Your mind finally gave up its control and your movements were marvelous to behold! Is it possible to worry and dance at the same time? No, everything flows together!
So, just do the best that you can in the life that you lead….and then, let Us, let Me, be your partner, Down Here in the Material World! I can’t promise that I won’t whisper in your ear at night but the Dance will become easier!”
