I Need Help

The one thing blocking me from fulfilling my purpose— to be of service by utilizing my knowledge and sharing my wisdom— is the ability to communicate effectively. I can’t even convey just how much I struggle with — and I’m beginning to think there may be much more to— this than I originally thought. I’m researching ways to overcome this by perhaps taking classes with hope that practice and guidance will help me but I am now led to believe that it’s more than a skill I can learn. I think my brain is the problem and that I learn differently than the average person. Perhaps I have a learning disability.

I stumbled on a forum where someone reached out to see if there were others who struggle with this very thing and a few of the responses hit the nail on the head:

“Having to verbalize the visual images in my brain is a daunting task just by itself at times. Sometimes I wish I could just take the images and telepathically send them to other people. Would make my life a lot easier”

“My thoughts stop working when I start speaking”

"Sometimes my mind just goes blank in the middle of a conversation”

The more I read, the more I could relate. It brought me comfort to know I was not alone in my struggle. I then discovered that the forum I stumbled on was part of an Asperger’s network.

I have the inspiration, passion, ideas and various abilities to help so many people yet the one ability I lack is the one I need the most. Yes I know there is a reason for this and it’s all part of the process but right now I’m stumped and confused. I need help.

 I must find the way.

E.I.I.S and E.W.I.S

Finding the good, even if it sucks (EIIS) and especially when it sucks (EWIS) is not an easy task. One could argue that finding it is one of the most complex tasks and I agree it is! Until you get the hang of it.

You get the call, there’s been an accident and your brother has been hit by a truck. He has a concussion but he is going to survive (thank the lord). Your brother has had such a string of bad luck and everybody—especially he— is wondering why him?  He seems to have fallen into another rabbit hole and his faith in humanity is shot. The concept of this “accident” actually being perceived as a gift—that this accident is actually for his benefit, may seem off base to most but in fact it truly is— supposed to be— a blessing in disguise. If he follows the lead, the answers are there for him to find and his purpose will be revealed.

He got hit by a truck and could have been killed, but he wasn’t. And this was no accident either. This was/is a very large wake-up call, or perhaps he is being called upon to do some work…within. How do I know this? Because his faith in humanity is shaken. He is being tested by being forced into this seemingly dark place (once again) to find his way out;—the hard way. His previous “accidents” remain fresh in his mind yet life moved on to pretty much the same routine on the exterior. His ego continues to dominate while the spirit continues manifesting events— which some refer to as divine intervention— and often these events- suck (ie: crisis).

Thinking outside the box may not come easy for many but all the tools and resources are within our reach. The answers will ultimately be found within but the clues and signs are everywhere. Awaken and pay attention to all your senses—especially your feelings—and learn how to fuel your body, mind and spirit in ways that work for you.   In the end it’s really simple.  Once you figure it out and get the hang of it, things will begin to unfold.  What you will come to discover is… a new beginning. You have a choice to make and the free will to make it. It’s yours if you choose.

Your bad situations, events and experiences are for you just as the good ones are. They are manifested FOR A REASON! EIIS and EWIS!!

WL&L to us all,
When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way.
But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me.”
