Recently, I wrote a lot about how important it is for healing that we don’t turn away from painful feelings but face them. That, to not push them back again into a drawer but to take them out of that drawer and let them go. The reason they show up is that they are ready to leave, and the triggers in the outside world are only coming to support them surfacing.
However, there is a lot in everybody to resolve, and we need to be careful not to constantly search for the things we may have to clear out; not even when we are in the awareness that it is the way to healing. But there can be a tendency for digging deeper deliberately because of the intention to get rid of as much as possible in a short period. That’s not the idea! It needs to come naturally. Otherwise, it can likely result in overwhelm because we dive into spheres we don’t understand yet. That way, we are lingering in that dark state maybe longer than necessary. We have not experienced enough yet and therefore are like walking through an unknown building during a blackout.
We need breaks, and we deserve breaks. One reason is the one already mentioned, that these breaks prepare us for the next challenges. Another reason is that we need time off to regain our strength and to enjoy and appreciate the feeling of liberation and healing. We need to be able to actually let that healing happen, which sets the stage for the next challenge. When we rush from one battle to the next, all we feel is pain. We may even begin to look only for the burdens and hardships because of being driven by the pursuit of redemption. But by forcing, we only move away from it. Besides all the awareness about the purpose of going through the pain, we become unconscious. For it is no longer the soul that leads, but our mind that blindly drives.
It is the beauty we need to see. It is the development of recognizing again who we really are. It is about creating with the physical and the spiritual powers. It is about running over meadows on a sunny summer day. It is about the conscious and touching experience of a sunrise or a sunset. It is about expanding ourselves into this world.
It’s about going with the natural flow. What comes up must be looked at. It must be looked at from a place of awareness and love, that it is part of life to go through valleys and climb mountains. But it is never meant to be trapped in a never-ending nightmare. But maybe the big lesson is to realize that…
Whatever you are going through
already carries the seeds of redemption.
Give yourself a break in recalling this.
Life is good!
In Love and Light
