The Universe Never Gives You More Then You Can Handle… Really?

There is a popular New Age saying that…

The Universe never gives you more then you can handle…

So when you are in the middle of some major life-change… inner and outer transformation… or some other piece of life-turbulence…

You can almost gaurantee that someone will pop up and say…

Don’t worry… the Universe never gives you more then you can handle… everything will be fine…

Which when you are in the middle of said chaos… emotional pain… big time suffering… and may not know where your next dollar is coming from, or when it will all end… can often sound not that helpful…

No… even if it is 100% true, and the Universe never gives you more then you can handle…

That particular piece of folk wisdom, I have found, cannot just be taken at face value… it has to be thought through.

There are a couple of side-issues which must also be considered.

For example…

You may be able to handle it on paper… and the Universe may never give you more then you can handle…

But the killer question is…?

Inside, in your head, do you believe that you can handle it…

Because if you don’t believe you can handle it… then you just won’t be able to pick yourself up and move forwards.

In these kinds of situations, your self-belief is everything.

I have come across many people who, on paper, are indeed qualified to handle the situation they are facing… and yet seem to be drowning when they should be swimming…

And conversely… I have seen many people… who you wouldn’t think should be able to cope… rise to the occasion… find some inner strength… and solider on…

As the 20th Century Industrialist Henry Ford once said:

“If you believe you can… or you believe you cannot… you are right either way.”

So, I have discovered, a lot of the time… it isn’t just a matter of your skills and knowledge which determine your success in life… but also of your inner self-belief and your beliefs about yourself and what you can do and achieve…

Also… and this is a weird one admittedly…

If the Universe never gives you more then you can handle, based on your skills, knowledge and abilities…

Every time you learn a new skill… especially a personal development or energy skill… such as NLP or Reiki or Crystal Healing…

Whenever you learn a new skill… your ability to cope with what life throws at you increases… so the Universe may indeed increase your difficulty level… because, having learnt this new skill… now you can handle much more transformation then you could before you went on the course…

Now, that is not to say you should never go on a personal development course ever again.

But it does mean you should be honest with yourself, and remember how skilled you have become.

For example…

In my own life, I have been practicing and exploring the Awakening Your Light Body system for around 2 decades now, and it is packed full of different energy techniques you can use for many different and difficult life issues and situations…

And yet, for me, it is quite common… when I am finding myself in a new crisis / transformation… when I am finding myself stuck, not sure what to do… for my inner guidance to kick in, saying:

“Why don’t you use some of the AYLB skills you have learnt already… things would flow / work a lot better if you only applied some of the stuff you already know.”

Oh, yes… I forgot about all that stuff… I forgot that I am not as unskilled and powerless as I might think.

It’s not always about rushing out to find and learn a new skill to solve an issue… sometimes it’s really about remembering and applying a skill we already know.

And that’s one of the weird things about us humans… we often forget what we do know… and so suffer on… when we could stand back, and remember we’re not as powerless as we first might think.

Finally, if you think about it… if this was true…

The Universe never gives you more then you can handle…

Then there wouldn’t be any real growth… because we could easily meet each challenge the Universe sends our way…

But if… as many spiritual masters suggest… we come to the Earth plane, as infinite and eternal beings who choose to forget how skilled and powerful we are…

Powerful beyond measure…

Then the real learning and Soul-growth is in the remembering.

I think the real growth comes through discovering and learning… growing into being the person who can deal with those issues… learn the life-lessons… and prove to the Universe that you can indeed rise to the occasion… and become the person it always thought you were.

Namaste 🙂

    Thank you 😇. I thought I was strong but I have had to reach extremely deeply in the last 2 years to stay here. Without my crystals and new found spiritual belief I wouldn’t be. Thank you for vibrational doorways, for showing me, there are lots of other crystal loving folk and for sharing your knowledge so freely.😇😇😇 This is just meant to be a message to you, Brian.
