What is your story? How are you not seeing yourself?
We are eternal energy ... spiritual beings of unlimited abilities and potential, having a temporary opportunity to create, affect and change the physical here on planet Earth. We are humans, but that cannot begin to define us. This human form is merely the vessel for our journey here, a kind of space suit, if you will. Yet, our contemporary focus has gotten so far from the spiritual perspective and so honed in on the physical that, for many of us, seeing ourselves means seeing only the physical container and it's condition.
I know this was true for me for many years. I can remember my beloved stepmom telling me one time, on a family outing, I was "being so controlling" when I thought I was helping others have the easiest time. From where I stood, I didn't even know I was controlling. I see now I was so separated from who I really am at my core ... my own essence ... that I couldn't see myself at all. In my case, and I'm sure in the case of many of us, I was told I couldn't be me as a child. I believed that and in the process, I lost mySelf. I didn't know I was role playing, so how could I even recognize how limited a part I had created for myself?
That was until something within me switched back on ... that sense of SELF beyond limits, time and space. That knowing of things unknown. When I gave myself permission to open the doors within, treasurers came forth. My personal "path toward enlightenment" was much less about learning from others and more about opening to myself. I think one of the reasons I am so effective as a healing facilitator is that I am able to get out of my own way. I let pure love and light reach forth and do the job. I listen for and heed insights and knowings that present. I guide and flow with the process.
What does my story have to do with the topic at hand? Everything. You see, until I healed myself I could not heal others. I had to find the places in me that were wounded ... most notably, the 3 year old who had been she could not heal herself or others. I had to acknowledge the wound and bring those parts of me to the Light before I could be whole and more easily reach my potential in this now moment. The answers didn't all come to me on my own. In recent years, I've had support from the most unlikely sources in stepping more firmly onto my Path ... some I sought out ... some who were provided to me. I had help uncovering my own story, so I could more clearly identify where I was playing hide and seek with myself. I believe this is part of being Human ... we need one another on this journey!
I encourage you, always, look inside yourself before going outside. If you think that you just "got sick" but don't think you have anything to do with the origin of that illness, recovery may be elusive. If you find yourself unhappy, but don't know where happiness lies, you are likely separated from your True Self.
Healing is an inside job, but sometimes we need to ask others for help. We may be too close to our pain or have buried our pain so deeply that healing can seem daunting. I also believe part of the paradigm of being "human" means we are programmed to need one another. My gifted abilities are in "releasing that which no longer serves you". Yet, I cannot release the skeletons you want to keep buried. So think about this ~ what if the only thing that's keeping you from being happy is you, your secrets, your self-doubts, your failure to forgive yourself and others, your inability to see the patterns and stories that keep presenting, asking to be healed?
For many people I work with, release of self-limiting beliefs, energetic blocks, past-life karmic threads, genetic predisposition, etc., is handled without much conscious processing on their part. For others session clients, being held by me (figuratively because many of my clients are over the phone) in the warm embrace of unconditional love and Divine Light provides what it takes to their childhood selves, their physical form, and/or their mind from the hold of negative experiences, emotions, patterns.
Once free, we can more fully assume control of our lives. Yes, sometimes we have to ask for help to get to that next level of self sufficiency!
If you feel upset, angry, afraid, insecure, take a moment to look inside. Is that emotion coming from this time and space? Or is it an old whirlpool that keeps sucking your attention, energy and focus away from right now. Is your body doing well? If not, are you encouraging it to be healthy with your thoughts, actions and maintenance of it? Healing is an inside job. Take a look within. Ask for help when you either have no answers or hit a road block in moving toward the next best version of you. Ultimately, I know we are here to shine!
