Purpose Inspired Living from my perspective...

We are the creators of our own experience…

Over the holidays, I had a series of traumatic events occur. Three big ones to be exact. I’m in my third trimester of my second pregnancy, so the extra hormones definitely didn’t help me cope. Prior to this period, I was sailing high and feeling good about life, feeling excited about my plans for the holidays and moving into 2012. 

These events threw me for a loop. I became frustrated with myself for not being able to cope as well as I would have hoped. I began questioning my strength, my faith and ability to overcome everything I was facing.

I realized that this was an opportunity to put my faith and newly learned spiritual principles and practices to the test. The results from this decision have been AMAZING my faith and optimism have been restored. I’ll tell more on this story in another post, so stay tuned!

I’ve been Following David Neagle for a few years now and had the opportunity to meet him and hear him speak in February 2010 at Suzanne Evans' “Be the Change Event.” David's “story” is remarkable and has always stuck with me. I got the blog post, which I've included below, via e-mail this morning and thought it was a fantastic message to share. He's absolutely right. I know firsthand! Check it out…


Trauma = Transformation

This week’s question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life”comes from an individual who wishes to remain anonymous. 


Hi David. I know you’ve probably addressed this before, but I need some real help. Just before the holidays I experienced a traumatic and life-changing event. It leveled me. I’m not going to go into details, but let’s just say I will never be the same. My problem is that the after effects have left me sad, depressed, and feeling totally hopeless and afraid. I don’t know if I can move through it or how to even begin. Can you help get me moving in the right direction?


First, let me just say that the key to you moving through this is to seek the truth.

Universal Truth states that we create EVERYTHING in our lives; all the “good” and all the “bad“.

When something happens in our lives that we feel on a deep emotional level, we tend to forget that we are playing a part in that sadness. We’ve created it in our life.

You may not be able to understand why, and it may be incredibly painful, but you created it.

This is a tough pill to swallow for most people. They want to take credit for all the great things in their lives, and then when something bad happens, they want to blame someone or something else.

The Laws don’t work half the time.

Truth is truth, and it is constant and consistent.

If you can step outside of that life changing event for just a moment, and ask yourself, what were the gifts in the experience, you will begin to see what I’m talking about.

When I got sucked through a hydroelectric dam, I could have focused on being a victim, blamed others and became bitter and angry because of all the pain, but the gift in that situation is that it completely changed my life. Had I not gone through that incredibly terrifying and excruciating experience, I wouldn’t be answering this question right now.

So if you can begin to take responsibility for that event, and know you were a willing partner in it, you can then begin to feel how powerful you really are.

You won’t be a victim anymore.

And when you can see the truth, it’ll set you free.

May this painful experience be a true catalyst to help you step into an even better you!
