“I want help finding the gift in this,” she said, calling to make an Akashic session appointment. “I know I didn’t believe it at first when my Akashic Records said losing my job was a blessing, but I get it now. So maybe there’s a gift in the end of this relationship with my boyfriend?” she asked.
“Let’s assume there is,” I replied as I slotted her in to my schedule. “This has been a popular theme in the Records for the last few months, and learning to trust this wisdom is an important step in spiritual mastery.”
Keep Your Eyes and Heart Open
It’s true. Trusting that there is a gift in every sorrow, and in every “negative” event in our lives is an important spiritual skill. And, the good news is that you don’t have to be 100% accomplished at it to begin reaping the benefits. This is one of those things that if you are just willing to “behave as if” you knew it to be true, then keep your eyes and heart open for the benefit, the positive reinforcement of the principle usually shows up pretty quickly.
But the first time people hear this idea, they tend to push back in disbelief. After all, “What could be good about being unemployed?” doesn’t seem like an unreasonable question.
And, understandably, when this client lost her job two years ago, she was so filled with fear that she couldn’t imagine how it could be a blessing. But in time she saw that it lead her to find a new position at a competitor that allowed her to work from home several days a week. She also was doing more interesting and challenging work and her self-confidence was growing.
Explore the Gifts
This time, with the ending of her relationship, she came to our Records session with a list of possible gifts to explore. “You know, just thinking that I will find a gift in this has made the break up easier to handle,” she told me.
And, as we talked more in her Records about the break up, she realized this. “I was outgrowing him,” she said, almost surprised to hear these words come out of her mouth.
“I wasn’t ready to leave him,” she admitted. “But I was outgrowing him. He hates his job and would dismiss my stories about what I was learning in mine. So I stopped sharing them with him, which meant I wasn’t sharing some important successes in my life. I let him keep me small in our relationship.”
Wish it Well
After the Records confirmed her thoughts, they also pointed out that because she was willing to believe there would be a gift, she was able to see the proverbial silver lining to the cloud.
Later that night I sent her a link to a snippet of an interview Oprah Winfrey had done with spiritual teacher Adyashanti where he builds on the truth of her experience. Negative energy, he explains, is looking for resolution.

“Bless it, wish it well, wish it its own freedom, and it will be a very powerful way that it will not come back to you,” he tells Oprah.
“You were open to the idea that your break up could be a blessing,” I typed in the note containing the link. “And you found that blessing yourself. Your process of healing has already begun,” I typed, paraphrasing what I could remember from what her Records said.
