One of the critical concepts in Personal Development is to be aware about the fact, that you may be exposed to various resources in your life at different times, but it is possible that you may not be ready for the same at that time! This means that you will come across various tools that can take your life to a higher level, but you may not recognize or see the value inside them, until you are ready for it.
The universe is full of information and energy. Actually, it is nothing but Information and Energy! Whatever you are looking for or want to have in your life, already exists. Either someone has manifested it already or it exists in the pure potential form. You are not required to hunt for it. It just exists. The only thing required is to get ready for it!
When it is in the pure potential form, it means that the possibility of its manifestation is already there, but not yet realized! When someone like you taps into that possibility it becomes the reality in the physical world.
Whatever you need for your personal growth and development, already exists! Either manifested or in the pure potential form!
With this fact said, it is also important to keep in mind that in your life you may come across various people, events, tools and other resources that you can use to enhance your life. They are the tools that you need to use to reach to a new level of awareness. Yet, it is possible that,
You may not realize their usefulness and value until you are ready for them!
Yes, this is true in my opinion, and I have experienced it many times.
When I was in the early phase of my personal development journey, I was very much focused on the Newtonian Mechanics Perspective.
(To know more about it, see my article: What Do I Know About Newtonian Mechanics Vs Quantum Mechanics Perspectives?)
During those days, I explored various psychotherapeutic methods and self-help techniques for me and my clients, that would logically make sense to me. If they resonated with my logical and scientific (!) viewpoints of that time, I would accept them and discard the rest.
During that time, I also came across self-help and healing methods that would stem from the Quantum Mechanics Perspective. As I had not explored that area anytime before, I discarded those methods as non-scientific and not effective without getting into and making efforts to know them. The reason that I now believe for it is: I was not ready for them!
Let me tell you that I came across Caroline Myss‘s works few years back. At that time, I was exploring traditional psychotherapeutic methods to bring change in a person. I was in Dr Wayne Dyer’s books and his work, and found that there was a book or a talk of Dr Wayne Dyer with Caroline Myss. Although, I enjoyed and was absorbing the content of Dr Wayne Dyer easily, and they were somehow resonating with me, I could not relate well with what Caroline Myss had to say.
Her books, talks and webpages kept on coming into my way but I kept on ignoring them or considered them as not-of-my-interest. It was because I was not ready then.
Now a days, I explore energy medicine and energy psychology in a great depth. The works of Caroline Myss and the people like her now make more sense to me. The more I explore this material, the more clarity comes to me. I feel that, now I am ready to absorb this stuff. I have grown to a new level and so now this material makes sense to me. I highly appreciate Caroline Myss, Judith Orloff, Richard Gerber and many other who are involved in the energy perspectives of personal development and healing.
The lesson I have learned
The lesson that I have learned from this experiences of mine are important to share with you. I have surely gained new awareness by diving into this field of Energy Dynamics and Healing, but I have also gained a critical concept of Personal Development and that I can summarize as:
During your journey called LIFE, you will be exposed to the events, people and resources which may not make sense to you at that time. You may find them useless or hocus pocus. But, believe me, if you continue to grow and develop on your path to find your true self and learn to manifest at your full potential, those stuff may come back again into your life.
This time, they will make complete sense to you. You will then realize that their presence in your life has taken you to a new level of understanding and awareness. This will happen only IF YOU ARE READY for it! The tools that you need to grow already exists in the universe. What you need is to get ready to let them make a difference for you.
How It has Changed Me
Now a days, I bookmark and save those stuff that some how come into my awareness, but does not make sense to me at that time. I consider them as messages from the Source to help me in my journey called LIFE.
If I am not ready, these material would not make sense to me. That’s OK for me. I may not strain myself and analyze to find out whether they are valid and relevant information or not. I may not discard them completely and label them as useless.
I will just bookmark or save them and thank the universe for bringing them into my awareness. I affirm to myself that whenever I am ready, I will go back to them (or they will come back to me!) and use them for the benefit of me and other people.
That’s it for this post!
