Interactions With People

Every person with whom you interact is a part of the person you are becoming. Not a single interaction with a single person is left out of the process of your becoming.
Many assume that only pleasing relationships have value, but that is not the case. Your awareness of an unwanted situation evokes from you a clear Vibrational request for something different. And so, even those uncomfortable interactions with others form the Vibrational basis of your expansion.
People often believe that the value of interacting with others is mostly about combining talents and actions in order to accomplish the things that need to be done in a society, but your interaction is much more important than that. You are helping one another define the attributes of your individual and collective expansion. In other words, even the briefest of encounters with another person is actually contributing to your expansion as an Eternal Being.
It is our desire to help you to return to your natural appreciation of the others with whom you are sharing your planet so that you can fully enjoy every encounter with others, no matter how brief, or regardless of whether you agree with them or not.
— Abraham

If you’ve been reading my blog since its inception you’ll see that I use Abraham Hicks quotations as starting off points quite a bit. The passage above and especially starting the third sentence struck a chord with me:
Many assume that only pleasing relationships have value, but that is not the case. Your awareness of an unwanted situation evokes from you a clear Vibrational request for something different. And so, even those uncomfortable interactions with others form the Vibrational basis of your expansion.

They are right when they say that many think only pleasing relationships are helpful. If you recall, I’ve maintained from the start that I believe we are spiritual beings having a physical experience and we are here to learn. How does anyone learn? Do we learn from the good things that happen in our lives? Of course. But the REAL learning process comes from lessons we’ve acquired during challenging moments in our lives. The example everyone has heard throughout their life is:
If a young child puts his hand on a hot stove, he’ll understand not to do it again.

Lesson learned. As it is with challenging relationships. These relationships were given to us or we chose them when we manifested here for the very reason to learn from them, to become better people, to move away from blaming others for the challenging situations we find ourselves in and look inward at our own behavior. After all we can’t change someone else’s behavior, we can only change our reaction to said behavior. Once we learn that valuable lesson all else, all the pain we feel from being hurt will fall away. I sometimes think we learn more from our challenging relationships then we’ll ever learn from relationships that are on an even keel.

What do you think?

Be Happy! Be Well! Be Positive!

  1. >I absolutely agree. It's the challenging relationships that often teach us most about ourselves and about life. This year, I experienced this twice with people who came into my life for reasons that I can only believe were to teach me difficult, if not heartbreaking, lessons. It was eye-opening.

  2. >I've had my own relationships that have been challenging in their own way myself, Lisa. As I've maintained at this blog from the start and in life in general, I'm a firm believer that we all come back again and again. I believe we meet the same people over and over, as well.Sometimes the people we are together with are in our lives because we haven't learned the lessons we are supposed to learn from them. We will continue to have adversarial relationships until we learn what we're supposed to learn.In my case, several relationships I've had during THIS lifetime have been challenging because I tried to change the other person. It was causing me so much grief. I FINALLY realized that I was NOT in charge, that I couldn't change someone else. I could ONLY change myself. Once that epiphany emerged and I incorporated into my worldview, ALL of my challenging relationships changed for the better.This stuff REALLY works if you put what you've learned into practice. The important thing though is to put what you've learned into practice though. You can do all the reading you want but unless you practice, nothing will change.
