Conflict vs. Confusion & How To Know The Difference
Humans are so quick to assume that chaos; obstacles and experiences which cause us to face reality or make difficult choices are “confusing”. Yet in reality my guides teach that there are extremely limited situations which are truly confusing. An example for true confusion would be road signs which contradict the other. Perhaps the work zone slower speed sign remains, yet it’s evident that there is no longer any active construction. Or enjoying a meal at a buffet; the sign above what is not fully identifiable says both pork ribs and beef tips. In general when it comes to making decisions, or reconciling when reality converges with our desired outcome, we are in conflict. While our Spiritual core knows the difference, we shun that light so that we can build upon the ideology of “confusion” which literally enables a dysfunctional pattern or belief.
My guides have taught me that 99% of the time we feel “confused” in regards to a relationship, person or even career/job, the truth is we are in conflict between what we know inside to be true, versus what we want to be true. Our fear creates this safe place called confusion, so that we can delay accepting the truth and instead seek to justify what we simply do not want to accept. True confusion is, or can be sorted through logical deduction and reasoning, but true conflict wreaks havoc with our emotions and finds us scrambling to uncover reasons, justifications and self-compromise to avoid what is generally inevitable; reality and acceptance.
The next time you find yourself feeling “confused” take a closer look at your situation, the width or span between what is and what we wish to be. By recognizing conflict for its sheer truth, we can face those difficult choices and reconnect with our higher self, which then allows us to step forward towards our highest path. Confusion creates no emotional or Spiritual reaction and conflict does nothing less.
