Wisdom Card #77 – Testing
Spiritual development is not an easy path to take; it is a path of testing. Why? For when you embark on this path, you begin to clear away hundreds of incarnations of locked stale energy that has never been expressed. This energy began as a thought, either in this lifetime or a past lifetime, but was never spoken or acted upon. It stays within the body, and in the soul memory.
Each soul has chosen the time to be tested and how they will be tested in order for the soul to learn the lessons they have chosen. Each soul chooses to learn and grow through lessons, as it is those lessons that educate the soul and allow for soul memories to be released. Your spirit guides, guardians and the Masters manage the tests you have set up for your own spiritual development. You have chosen these tests before you were born, and generally there will be three rounds of testing for each lesson. If you fail the test, the lesson will be continually brought up in your life until it is completed. You will have to pass each of the three rounds of testing, or start all over once again. You will be tested again and again, until the lesson has been conquered.
You are the one who sets up the testing for yourself. You alone are responsible for the testing because your Higher Self knows what is best for your soul growth. Spiritual testing is about facing your inner fears, doubts, and insecurities. It is about being totally true to yourself, and letting go of any material attachment, including possessions, relationships, people, habits, or even your comfort zone. Spiritual testing can be hard at times, as the Self is fighting for its control and its survival. The Self can bring all of the past experiences, emotions, and fears out from your subconscious soul memory to cloud your vision. It is the Self part of you that makes you feel like moaning and groaning when you are experiencing distress or hardship.
This card has been drawn today because you have been going through a difficult phase of testing. Remember, you are never alone. You are always surrounded by those from the world of Spirit, all you need is to call their name, “Divine Spirit,” for help and you will be enveloped by their love. You may not feel it, but it will help you on your path of testing. The more you face it, the sooner you pass through the testing and move forward in vibration.
