During your life journey, you are placed in situations in which you must choose situations to learn from. Often those choices upset those around you who do not want you to change and who do not know that the experience you have chosen to learn from will assist them in their growth, too. Too often you back down from moving into the new energy because of influence from around you, and the lesson is never learned. Each one of you has chosen lessons to learn as part of your incarnation in this life; many of you, however, never learn those lessons because you are swayed by others to stay in the comfort zone.
For those souls who do choose to learn the lessons, this can mean estrangement from those who one loves and cares for. Life is one continual schoolroom; each experience allows the soul to grow and to step out of fear as well as to learn many things, which one would not learn in the comfort of the old way.
If you have chosen to make changes in this incarnation and do not make those changes, the Universe will allow you time to do them on your own, and then if you do not choose to do them, the Universe will then create the situation needed for you to make those changes. You cannot run away from your lessons – oh yes, you can think you can by choosing not to do so, but eventually the Universe will force you to learn, and it will create a situation where you have to face the issues.
You may ask, which is better? Is it better if I wait for the Universe to create the situation rather than do it myself? It is always better to do it yourself rather than have the Universe force you, for the Universe will do it without warning, and often this is such a shock that it is much worse than you choosing to do it yourself and being forewarned. To many of you this situation may seem very cruel, yet it is the way the it is.
The choices you make will lead to your incarnation being a smooth or a rocky path. You make the choices, and usually because of fear, you choose to stay in the old way. For those souls who choose to learn and not wait for the Universe to bring them to their knees, life does become a challenge with the new energies and new lessons, but eventually, their lessons are learned and they can then enjoy the rewards of their lessons and be free of the burden of that learning.
