Part III- Your Traumaland: 4 Easy Steps to Surviving Life’s Challenges

In part II of this article we discovered that we have the innate ability to be a winner in life no matter how difficult our challenges may be because we are never alone. We have guidance that we can tap into. We also explored the 3 ways to become victorious and live your dream-life.


In this section we are going to answer the question: What is our truth and how is it empowering?


III) Accepting Our Truth and Embracing our Answers.



The truth is: We possess all the questions and answers to all our life-challenges. Where do we store these questions and answers and how can we find and then access them?  Discover them by using these 3 avenues for success:



·         Dreams- A series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person’s mind during sleep.




·         Meditations- A practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or as an end in itself.




·         Prayer- A solemn request for help or expression of thanks addressed to God or an object of worship.

As you become more tuned into with your inner-world, you may find that some answers are given to you by spirit-guides. We are all born with spirit-guides. A spirit-guide is a spirit of an archetypal force or ancestor that works closely with an individual, keeping them safe and offering guidance. Some guides move in and out of our life as loved ones. We are their job and the take their job seriously! Other guides come in a number of forms and present themselves in a myriad of places, like just before a car runs you down and a stranger’s hand reaches out and saves you, or a deceased parent walks into your dream, gives you a hug and “words of advice,” or the sound of a beloved dead pet alerts you to a fire starting in the kitchen. Many of our guides can be contacted though the techniques listed above. We’ve learned to pray but not how to listen for the answers to our prayers. Learn to listen.


Join me here for the last section of this four part article where will discuss in depth the different ways we can learn to listen for guidance and remember to say thank-you for our guidance in life.
