There are no great people in this world, only great challenges which ordinary people rise to meet. William Frederick Halsey, Jr.

Having  bipolar disorder is certainly a great challenge to overcome. Could it be that this is the reason we came to this earth, to overcome this great obstacle? The Universe does not give us a difficulty that we cannot conquer. You may feel that you are at the end of your tether and that there are no answers. The answers lie within you, and when you realize what it is you need to be well your energy will draw it to you. Letting go is a part of the process: prayer and meditation are the best ways to achieve this. Even if you don’t consciously know what you need, your Higher Self knows exactly what you require to recover. Just be receptive to whatever opportunities come your way. When you’ve found the right path you will know.

Close your eyes and envision the love of the Universe surrounding you. Imagine a long ceremonial parade of people coming to bring you brightly wrapped gifts. As you open each one, you see a misty vision rising out of the package. These visions represent what you need to be well. Your needs might be to have supportive, understanding people in your life. Or maybe to have a doctor who listens to you. As you identify each vision, see it becoming more solid, more real. When you can see these visions as concrete realities, then say to yourself, “I accept these things into my life. The Universe provides just what I need to be well”.
