Accident, mishap and physical illness are energetic adjustments, intended to guide energy of awareness toward alignment with the essence of infinite, all-encompassing Love (Truth).
The need for these forms of adjustment can be largely circumvented by the one who heeds their more subtle forms of inner guidance. (Note: Some extreme forms of adjustment may have been chosen by you as part of your life plan)
Specifically, guidance into alignment with Truth is always being offered in the form of feeling. However, mental conditioning is such that ego leads awareness to avoid uncomfortable or painful feeling with layers of mental occupation, until more extreme forms of guidance (accident, mishap, illness) are made inevitable.
Mental occupation is marked by activity that distracts your awareness from the feeling at hand. It could be in the form of thoughts about how things will be better when you are through what’s happening now, or the compulsion to engage in activity for the purpose of passing time.
When mental occupation is noticed, you can stop doing, and start breathing deeply, just being with the feeling and noticing the thoughts that come with that feeling.
In this way, you become aware of what thoughts the feeling is bringing up. From that awareness, you can decide whether uncomfortable or painful feeling thoughts are still necessary according to what meaning you give to them.
Do this with devotion to the Truth that every thought is born in delusion, and no meaning will be given to the thoughts as they come up. In this way, you dismantle the structure of fear that gives credence to the underlying belief, and that belief loses it’s magnetic affixation to your energy of awareness.
As more thoughts that provide structure for fearful belief move out of the way, you can see more and more clearly the direction in which your energy of awareness is being ‘asked’ to shift; and to the degree that you follow that subtle voice, there is no need for more extreme forms of guidance.
Of course, if you experience extreme suffering, it serves you to remember that you have received a Divine adjustment, and that there is a purpose for that suffering. Continue to breathe through the thoughts about pain, victimhood, blame and resentment (forms of fear) in the same manner, and seize this opportunity for deep healing to occur.
