Too often, mental programs from our past tell us that we are not worthy of being loved fully. We are not even aware of how much shame, anger, disappointment, and sadness we carry in relation to our choices, our pasts, our bodies, and the overall state of our lives.
The smallest exchange from many years ago can negatively shift how we think about ourselves. We can hold on to a slight or wound which eventually settles into our bones in a permanent way. However, the person involved who hurt or offended us may have meant very little by their words or actions and possibly may not have considered the effect on us at all. These people might not be aware of their emotional abuse or they may have such deep insecurities of their own and not know how to behave rationally.
Most of our damaging mental programs began in childhood, but these settings can be adjusted with some attention and love. Our own wisdom and guidance can guide us to greater levels of awareness and awakening if we only give ourselves the gift of uninterrupted time and space. It takes patience to look inside and pay attention to the intuition and wisdom working its way into our lives.
The more painful the situation, the more heroic the journey is when you go inward for healing instead of acting destructively outwardly.
Living in a culture that financially stretches most of us, a culture that pays little attention and offers so little hope of transformation to those who are traumatized and deeply suffering, is challenging and depressing. Certainly, we need a loving connection to others through community, but beyond connection to others, we also need to know that that we each possess the ability to clear out the stress and pain in our own lives. Negativity can accumulate quickly in our minds and systems, and deep love and care for your own well-being can be like a large waterfall of positive, clearing energy.
Have you ever observed someone close to you come home after a trying day at work? Their tough day is over, yet this person simmers and stews in the energy and irritations of their day. They do not realize that they are free and can drop that burden. All the negativity of the day can be washed away without alcohol, overeating, binge watching television, etc.
Certainly, good habits like spending time in nature, exercising, and eating healthy foods can help reset your energy, but an intent to manifest a more positive state is crucial. Going within and opening yourself to a more positive state of being can reset everything. Gravitating to messages of healing can also help you.
Perhaps, one of the keys to staying young is staying teachable and realizing that we all have much to learn through spiritual development and energetic changes.
Nothing screeches of old age more than the couch potato who knows it all and “it all is going to hell.” Bullshit….everything is about to change miraculously. Everything is about to become much more fun and entertaining—that is the mind of the child and the mind of someone who can manifest change and enjoyment from even simple moments in life.
Stress and pain can be washed away with the intent to become someone different. We can choose what we desire from the world energetically and become that frequency. If you want to feel love, send love to your heart, your mind, and every cell of your body. Don’t laugh this idea. Try doing this in the middle of a moment of anxiety or pain, and see how you can transform yourself. If you can’t love yourself in this way, how can anyone else offer you this love?
If you want to feel freedom, go stand in an open field and face down your fears like they are wild bulls running at you, and you have the power to stop them with one of your fingers. You have the power to dance out of the way of the danger in your mind. You can transform the tigers of your nightmares into sweet kittens. If you want to let go of your anger, write a short story and kill your tormentors off or imagine them old with dementia. They’ll get there. Imagine you are the one serving them dinner, and they don’t even know who you are. Have compassion or simply be done with them. Whatever the case, let go of the negativity!
Walk into the light of all that you want. Stress can be washed away by realizing that a part of us is always renewable. Of course, we have our genetic predispositions and our current circumstances, but we also have a powerhouse of unused potential. We have a connection to guides and galaxies of possibility.
The simplest of moments can shift your life, and the energy you put into your efforts will eventually transform your life. You are worthy of love, not disregard. You are worthy of positive connections, not draining ones. You are worthy of your own love, so start there and look to the stars and heavens for blessings.
So few people look upward and wait for the answers. Be one of the ones who is open and receptive. Your dreams aren’t going to instantly materialize just from sitting in your backyard and looking at the moon, but that moment might reset your energy and allow you to start working toward what you want with a more positive version of yourself—a version that is open to vast amounts of goodness, love, and mercy every remaining day of your life.
