The Way Forward: A Matter of Perspective

About 10 years ago a new client came to see me. She was mentally distraught, at the end of her tether. She had a kind face, bright, divorced, single mother living on a house boat. I felt that she was nearly suicidal, she managed a smile and nodded when I said ‘sometimes you feel like you want to leave this solar system altogether!’ What I also sensed is that she had the potential to write creatively, and that if she chose, she could write a very successful movie script. She was experiencing blocks in several areas of her life; love, and finances, but this did not mean that all the potential areas for her development were also obstructed.

Now I know that this might sound obvious, but in my experience so many of us treat our problems as being so overwhelming that we can see no possibility of progress, we can see no sign of hope. We need to understand that when we experience a block in one area of our life it is very often a symptom of imbalance, or lack of energy flow, in other areas or threads in our life.  Reluctantly, she took up my suggestion and joined a writing class.

I am telling you this story because it illustrates a profound and easily forgotten truth: our lives are composed of a series of threads that are interwoven, like the pattern in a Persian carpet, and it does not consist of just one strand, or piece. My client was experiencing blocks in several areas of her life; love, and finances, but this did not mean that all the potential areas for her development were also obstructed. Her creative thread was strong and would be sufficient to rescue her and guide her on her way.

You will be glad to know that my client successfully completed her writing course upon acting on the suggestion I resented her with, met her future husband (who was her course teacher and a movie director/producer) and wrote a short story. She also developed a unique healing ability which she had been previously unaware of; and later on started an online magazine.

She needed to express her creativity and healing and the blockages she originally experienced forced her to re-balance herself and acknowledge key threads within it her life.  In order to achieve her true potential, she needed to weave a particular pattern, her self-actualization, using all her talents and abilities.

In other words, using my analogy of climbing up the pyramids which I had previously mentioned, climbing up any one of the side of a pyramid can lead you to experiencing the full view at the top.

So, if you have a problem with your partner, or with your health, or with your children, always remember that there are always other threads in the pattern of your life which remain open and available to you to build on and make the whole pattern clearer. One blockage, or even two or three, will not block all the other threads available to you. Once you pick up a new thread, you are on your way to weaving the pattern of your life.

Now I know that this might sound obvious, but in my experience so many of us treat our problems as being so overwhelming that we can see no possibility of progress, we can see no sign of hope. Our perspective is limited to where we are standing, and what we are experiencing and know to be true about our lives at that point in time.

We need to understand that when we experience a block in one area of our life it is very often a symptom of imbalance, or lack of energy flow, in other areas or threads in our life. It is almost that we are bound by our current life view, and other ways of moving forward are out of our line of sight.

Effectively, we are enforcing to ourselves that we are stuck, which leads us to spiralling down the rabbit of hole. If this situation or state of feeling persists, it leads to frustration and eventually depression. We are then focusing our efforts on being stuck, rather than on changing our point of view.

Finally, Recognise what you feel, but try not analyse it. Have the courage to stay true to yourself by acknowledging that you are in a ‘rut’, and recognising that you can come out of it by altering the core beliefs you hold about yourself and your life.
