The bigger picture of struggles & “Angelic Agitators” (SSN)

I honestly think that some struggles merely come our way to prepare us to handle something bigger in the future. The struggles are always teaching us something and they are preparing us, making us wiser, raising our consciousness, and twisting and turning us toward a better “destiny” than we could have imagined.

Here are a couple of thoughts from some great minds on the subject:

“Our challenges give our lives meaning; they help us rise to another level of enlightenment and understanding… It’s almost as if our challenges show up by design: you pick something you want to do, and then you quickly realize that obtaining it is going to require you to be more than you’ve ever been before.”
“Manifesting Change” By Mike Dooley

“It’s a force that appears to be negative, but actually shows you how to realize your Personal Legend. It prepares your spirit and your will, because there is one great truth on this planet: whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, it’s because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. It’s your mission in earth.”
Paulo Coehlo – the Alchemist

“Whenever the seemingly ‘unthought-of’ unexpectedly lands in your path, it is always a  stepping stone to another place that you have been thinking about… In the traffic accident there were several long-range end results that I was thinking about that could perhaps be best achieved effortlessly, flawlessly, and miraculously through this incident…”
“Manifesting Change” By Mike Dooley

Another fun way to think about challenging people was presented by Barbara Leger in Science of Mind Magazine, September 2010. In it she talks about a “‘ruthless angel’ (meaning an angel who shakes you up to wake you up).”

Oh, what a fun way to think about people who shake you up; they are ruthless angels – or perhaps ruthless is too strong a word. What about, “angelic agitators?” I like that.

So the next time someone or something is agitating you, remember; it just might be an angelic agitator here to help you. In fact, I think we can agree that they are.


Takeaway: There is a lesson in any struggle (or agitating person). Each struggle allows you to learn and grow and become a better person because of it.
