Today I want to share a message about something that I feel often comes up along the journey of spiritual growth and self-discovery – feeling defeated and like you want to give up.
Have you ever felt that way???
I know I have. MANY times along my journey I’ve had moments where I questioned myself, asking myself whether or not I should really be doing this whole thing, and feeling like I just wanted to crawl into a hole and hide.
Yup, it’s true. What’s important to understand about the journey is that feeling this way is NORMAL!!! We all face these things at one point or another. And it’s really just the ego mind feeling very insecure and afraid, that it just wants to hide from the world.
But that hiding and insecurity is not your real truth. It is not the real truth of who you are, nor is it the way you were meant to live. So today I have a message from Archangel Chamuel who stepping forward to guide you in what to do when you feel like giving up on yourself and your dreams.
Now before I get into all the details about this topic, make sure you go and check out my blog post about Archangel Chamuel if you haven’t heard of him before. You can also check out my YouTube video about Archangel Chamuel where I guide you through a mini-meditation so that you can connect to his energy!
When it comes to this message about what to do when you feel like giving up, it applies to ANY area of your life – whether it’s your spiritual journey, your business or career, or any other specific area in your life, where it feels like you’re trying SO HARD to achieve a certain goal but you just keep running around in circles and not making any progress.
Archangel Chamuel says to NEVER give up!!!
Never give up on your dreams. Never give up on your heart’s desires. And most importantly, never give up on you.
So the very first thing that Archangel Chamuel is asking for you to do is to take a step back from whatever it is you’re doing or working towards right now. If it feels like you’re in a cycle where you keep doing something over and over again with no result, the first thing you need to do is to take a step back.
Maybe your business isn’t growing the way you thought it would, or you’re not receiving the clients or income that you desire. Maybe it’s the fact that you want to travel the world and you want to explore and feel free, but you feel tied down and no matter what you do you just can’t seem to break free from the day to day routine and get into a space being able to travel.
No matter what particular situation you’re dealing with right now, the first step is for you to take a pause and step back from it for a moment.
This doesn’t mean that you’re giving up. It doesn’t mean that you’re walking away from it. This just means that you’re taking a step back to give yourself some space to reconnect back with yourself and who you are. You’re giving yourself the space to reconnect with your soul’s truth and connect with the power and the strength that exists within.
Every single one of you has access to that Divine power and strength that comes from inside. You are a Divine being of light and you are connected to Source energy. This Divine power and strength comes directly from your connection to Source.
You were created from Source energy and that very same energy is always running through you. What happens is that when we get too caught up in something and we are trying to force something or push our way through, we get a little bit disconnected from that Divine power and Divine strength. We get disconnected from who we truly are. So the first thing that you need to do is to reconnect to that energy and power. And the way you do that is by stepping back and taking a moment to reconnect to yourself and who you truly are.
The way that re-connection happens will look different for everyone. So for some people it might be that you just need to take a break and go out and do something fun or do something that you haven’t done in a really long time. This will help to get your mind off of things and instead focus on the things that bring you joy, creativity, and an energy of fun.
For other people, this might look like going out into nature and spending some time going for a walk or hiking. For others, it might mean doing artwork. Maybe you like to paint or draw in your spare time. Maybe you like to play music or listen to music. Maybe you like to write fiction or write stories or journal your thoughts and feelings.
Whatever it is for you, find that special thing that helps you to step away from the “routine” or the thing that you’ve been trying to accomplish. Do something that helps you to reconnect to who you are, reconnect to the truth within and reconnect to the energy of joy, peace and love.
The next step is to then call on Archangel Chamuel and ask him to show you your next steps. It’s important though that you only do this once you’ve taken the first step, which to reconnect to yourself and the Divine energy within.
What happens is that as you allow your focus to move away from what you were doing and come back to your truth (step #1), you begin to see things from a higher perspective. You open yourself up to be able to see things from a different perspective, which means that you open yourself up to inspirational guidance and a fresh new way of looking at your current situation.
You will begin to have new ideas and Archangel Chamuel is going to help you see and recognize what your next steps are. So the most important thing for you to do in step #2 is to call on Archangel Chamuel and ask him to support you, ask him to guide you and show you the way.
When it comes to calling on the Archangels (and this goes for all of the Archangels, but in this case I will specifically refer to Archangel Chamuel) and asking for their support and guidance you simply need to say: “Archangel Chamuel, I ask that you step forward. Please show me what my next step is. Please show me the way. Please help me step into the energy of who I truly am and what I desire to create for myself. Show me what to do next.”
This doesn’t have to be word for word, just something along those lines where you call on Archangel Chamuel and ask him to show you the way. Then you have to let go and surrender. Instead of waiting impatiently and/or desperately for the answer and the guidance to come in, allow yourself to be guided by inspiration, meaning whatever it is that inspires you, whatever you feel motivated to do, you begin to do that. Even if it’s not going back to what you were doing before. What’s important here is for you to do something that brings that sense of motivation and that sense of inspiration to you. And as you get back into that energy, you will see that your own energy has shifted.
This whole process that Archangel Chamuel is sharing is to help you shift your energy.
So that when you come back to working towards your dreams and goals, you come back with a whole different energy and different connection. You come back being more connected to who you are and THAT is what will drive you forward and help you to move forward in a completely new way and towards what it is that you desire in your life.
The most important thing to remember is that you did not give up!!! Do not give up on your dream or on your desire. This whole process is all about simply allowing yourself to step away, reconnect to yourself and your truth, and come back to it with a fresh new perspective and energy.
Remember that Archangel Chamuel is here to support you through all of this. As I said above, if you need to watch my YouTube video about Archangel Chamuel to connect with his energy, please do so and allow yourself to be supported, guided and revitalized in terms of your goals and what it is that you’re creating for yourself.
Let me know if you have any questions about what I shared today or any other questions about connecting with the Archangels or your experiences with Archangel Chamuel!
