 As we attempt to raise our vibrational frequency, pursue our purpose, and live in Spirit, we so often come up against dualities.  We are told to follow our path, release the negative and limiting aspects of our being, be in the space of those who are of equal or higher vibration.

So what happens when we are faced with negativity, people not on purpose, conditions and situations that oppose the direction which we are pursuing?

Enter the concept of “Intersections” – persons or conditions which do not appear to be in conjunction with our path and spiritual beliefs.  We are reminded that everyone enters our sphere for a reason and with some agreement either in spirit or from conscious contracts and connections.  Our challenge is how to operate our being-ness when this occurs.

Yes, it is true that for us to grow our potential, we must surround ourselves with high vibrational allies.  It is also true that often there are negative influences in our lives that make it difficult to only live in Spirit.  Rather than being extremists and refusing to operate within the negative influences or be around negative people, it is our great challenge and opportunity to look beyond these influences to the original reasons for entry into our lives.

Intersections are then, those persons or influences  who cross our path for a moment(s) in order to grow us.  It is not that everyone must be on our path or even travel parallel to it, but there will and must be places of Intersection.  People and events or influences that intersect with us are not automatically less than, less evolved, or negative to the point of no return – they simply Are – in our lives.

Asking the Hard Questions

When we can remember that persons or conditions who intersect with us are there specifically for that purpose we can then begin the process of understanding why and how things are occurring.  If a person is your intersection, it becomes your opportunity to ask the purpose: are they there to assist you, to provide some measure of comfort or support, or to be a mirror for you?  Once you have answered this question, you are free to continue allowing the intersection or to say no thanks.

If we do not allow ourselves to get to the reason, if we do not ask the hard questions of ourselves, we run the risk of judgement and holding ourselves higher than the other.  When we are able to embrace the information, the lesson, the opportunity, we can then move easily forward into our further purpose rather than shutting down and finding fault. With Intersections, we always have a choice as to how we see, feel, think and behave.  We may for a moment, choose to see them as negative, hurtful or controlling – yet we are in control, and when we become open to their presence in our lives, we then become open to the why of their presence – the why becomes empowering rather than dis-empowering because we choose to see – beyond the circumstance or the words or actions – to the spirit of the occurrence.

When we see and accept Intersections, we again stay in the present moment, retain our power and become free to continue the journey separately or together — Reminding ourselves that each person we meet is on their path, (purpose, maybe or not),  we have not the right to judge according to our path but to simply recognize a fellow traveler and to find peace in the asking.
