Solving Problems From a Higher Level
One of my favorite universal truths is that we can’t solve a problem from the energy of the problem. It has helped me countless times manifest a higher outcome by getting out of my own way, and allowing divine intelligence to work its magic.
Solving a problem from a higher place means first acknowledging, and then trusting, that within us resides the perfect solution to any issue that reflects less than our perfect good. It helps to remember that we are created of the same vast consciousness that created all perfect answers, every loving act, and every moment of inspiration or guidance. Vast and unlimited awareness of good is not only something we can access in moments of need, it is who we are, at our core, when the veil of human forgetting is gently swept aside. We are never separate from divine intelligence; it lives as us.
Deciding to manage a problem from a higher vibration can take a good deal of faith, and perseverance, because sometimes it can be very difficult to surrender our worry about a problem. Every bit of human programming we have tells us that we need to stew, and fuss, and worry, until we solve the situation. In some cases, a great deal of fear can be involved, which makes turning over the problem to divine intelligence within us even harder to do. When we are in a lot of fear, we identify with that, rather than divine intelligence from which we are created.
When we turn the details of a problem over and over in our minds, we are stuck in the energy of the problem. When we continue to relive a conversation or situation in our thinking, expecting that we will somehow get a handle on it, what happens instead is that it just grabs more of our attention. More and more of our awareness is sucked into a problem vibration. This is not helpful.
What is helpful is remembering, when the what-ifs and oh-my-God’s that fear speaks are getting me nowhere but upset, that I always have a choice in what truth I will serve. Even when the voice of fear is loud, I choose to serve the truth of God’s infinite good, living as me.
And as my heart fills with the grace of remembering, I am connected with all that I need to create my own highest good. My decisions are aligned with a rightness that I not only sense but feel in my heart, and right down to my bones. My burden is light, and I am blessed beyond measure.
May your burden be light, and your blessings many. And may this tool be a blessing.
