How, when all these bad things have happened or are happening to me do I stay positive or in the Light of the Divine? Sigh.
When I began my spiritual quest in earnest, this question nipped at my heels on a regular basis. What I have come to understand is that everything I have experienced takes part in my Soul’s growth.
The things that have been most challenging to my human self, have ultimately brought out the most beautiful golden nuggets in my being. The teen years, for many of us, are rife with confusion and drama. My teen years were not only layered with “normal” teen feelings, but a constant, unrelenting emotional and physical abuse from other teens. I thought that nothing good could have come from that place.
Yet, as I dug into my spiritual and psychic practice, I began to open up to a bigger vision. I started to find that the teen experience had opened my empathic gifts fully. I was able to see a situation from the “underdog’s” side of things.I was able to feel what others feel and relate to my environment on a whole new level of communication and awareness.
I became passionate for justice and speaking my Truth. As difficult and painful as that time was for me, I believe that it was those exact experiences that brought out gifts that were dormant and needing opening. As long as I remember to look at experiences from the Divine perspective, I can step into the Light that seems to be evading me.
And by looking at a situation from the Divine perspective, I mean to be able to find out how this situation that I am experiencing is serving me in some way. While I admit, this is not an easy task in many circumstances, I have come to rely on this way of living life so that I do not fall into the trap of “poor me.”
I love talking with Samantha about this because she exudes an air of positive vibration in all that she manifests, not only herself, but, with all the people that she works with. She does not deny that an experience is/was challenging, but she definitely looks for the positive bend to it. And she brings laughter and joy to the forefront of the world, which we need in large quantities!
Currently, Samantha is working with the Self Employed Artists Conference, which is held in February in Chicago. She is running her Improv Empowerment Workshop and she is on a few panels. She will also be working one on one with artists there. Follow the embedded link below to learn how you can connect with Samantha in Chicago~
