I’m so sorry you’re sad …

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from an individual who wishes to remain anonymous.


How do I work toward becoming “whole” after a life changing experience? My confidence is null and void. My friends tell me that there is sadness in my voice, even when I'm smiling. If I continue on this path, I will lose what little I have.

I so much appreciate your daily responses to questions asked.


Universal Truth states that we create EVERYTHING in our lives; all the “good” and all the “bad”.

When something happens in our lives that we feel on a deep emotional level, we tend to forget that we are playing a part in that sadness. We've created it in our life.

You may not be able to understand why, and it may be incredibly painful, but you created it.

This is a tough pill to swallow for most people. They want to take credit for all the great things in their lives, and then when something bad happens, they want to blame someone or something else.

The Laws don't work half the time.

Truth is truth, and it is constant and consistent.

If you can step outside of that life changing event for just a moment, and ask yourself, what were the gifts in the experience, you will begin to see what I'm talking about.

When I got sucked through a hydroelectric dam, I could have focused on being a victim, blamed others and became bitter and angry because of all the pain, but the gift in that situation is that it completely changed my life. Had I not gone through that incredibly terrifying and excruciating experience, I wouldn't be answering this question right now.

So if you can begin to take responsibility for that event, and know you were a willing partner in it, you can then begin to feel how powerful you really are.

You won't be a victim anymore.

And when you can see the truth, it'll set you free.

  1. I am wondering would that also be the answer for someone who is sad because of the sudden loss of a family member?

    • It most certainly could Jackie. It really is difficult when we come to the awareness that we are creating everything in our lives, both the good and the bad. Owning it is a powerful realization indeed. Thanks for the post.

  2. It much easier to know that Truth is constant and consistent, and the way we create our own experience is just incredible. Thank you David, love your answer…

  3. In addition to David’s usual wise, “right-on” advice, may I suggest using emotional release work to clear these severe energy blocks. Some people are more emotionally sensitive than others and have difficulty recovering from life-changing experiences, especially as emotional layers build up over the years. When properly used, emotional release techniques like EFT: Emotional Freedom Techniques and FREED: Fast Release of Emotional Energy Drains will clear the blocks and help you feel “whole” again. You’ll be able to think of past experiences, not feel victimized or hurt, but feel acceptance and responsibility. I’m a living testimonial of this truth, have used EFT and FREED to clear emo-blocks in myself, including the many that have arisen while listening to David’s butt-kicking business brilliance! Thank you, David!

    • Thanks for the information Colleen. Employing various techniques are quite helpful when increasing levels of awareness along this journey. Also, very happy to hear that my “butt-kicking” business brilliance is not going unnoticed! LOL! I appreciate your comments Colleen and look forward to more.

  4. Wow, this is very powerful David. I recently had an experience that I got a red flag on and I knew I shouldn’t pursue it but I did and I have no one to blame but myself for the outcome because I was already shown that it wasn’t going to work but when you want what you want you get what goes with that. Lesson learned.

    • So true Simone. Lessons such as these are not to be judged, but treated as yet another stepping stone to something better. I appreciate you sharing your experience with us here.

  5. I can see many areas in my life where I created the “less than ideal” situations in my life – of course not knowing it at the time. Looking back I can see how I created this.
    However, my brother committing suicide I do not see myself “creating” in my life. I may have chosen this experience for this lifetime to learn from it, but I’m not resonating with “creating” it. Does that make sense?

    • Thanks Lisa; so sorry for your loss. Truly understanding Universal Law means taking responsibility for everything that occurs in our lives, the good and the bad. This doesn’t make sense to everyone, especially when tragedy strikes as is the case in your situation. But as I stated above, truth is truth. There is something to be taken from this difficult event that will help you to propel forward with peace. Only you can know what that is. I appreciate your comment and thank you for having the courage to share it with us in this space.
