Giving ourselves permission to just ‘BE’ seems alien to most people.
In my workshops and coaching this is one of the first concepts I cover and many have appreciated exploring this area and working through it.
They all get instant transformations walhamdulilah.
Why do we forget about this concept?
Because we get caught up in our day to day and don’t stop to breathe and take in the silence.
And because of this we have constant soul and heart ache and we don’t understand what has gone loopy for us.
When faced with such challenges we may hit social media to get some therapy or reassurance.
All we need to do is learn to silence our minds.To let go of everything and anything that doesn’t serve our soul and our true purpose.
Eternal happiness comes from living our souls purpose – worshipping God. So, with this in mind, live your awesome life now, make those positive changes, and prepare for your best afterlife.
Let go and let God.
Call on God for He (SWT) is listening to your call.
“And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me – indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided.“
Surah Al-Baqarah (The Cow) 2:186
Turn inwards and reconnect with your soul and talk to your Creator – this will help your soul to heal.
But many of you reading this won’t take it on board!
Because we are just addicted to drama and drama gives us attention and comfort!
We are fooling no one except ourselves here.
Anas (radhiallahu anhu) said that he heard the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) say: “Allah the Exalted said: “O son of Adam! As long as you invoke Me and plead to Me, I will forgive you whatever you have committed, and I will not make much of it. O son of Adam! If your evil deeds reach the borders of the sky, and then you ask Me for forgiveness, I will forgive you. O son of Adam! If you bring forth the earth full of errors, then you meet Me while you do not associate anything (or anyone) with Me, I will bring forth for you its full of forgiveness.” [At-Tirmidhee (Shaikh Albanee rendered it as Hasan)]
If there is one piece of advice which I can give you after studying and practising personal and spiritual peak performance for the last 20 years then it is this; ‘You will always be a daily work in progress and each step will take you closer to your ultimate final destination. Keep the end in mind always!’
Quit the drama – it is not serving your ultimate soul purpose!
Let me help you help your soul to heal.
