A very common condition
Are you living in the past, rehashing past traumas and situations? Do you feel like you want to let go but just can’t?
“Whether you are experiencing regret, sorrow, guilt, shame or a number of other lower vibrational anxieties, you need to let go and detach.”
So many people live this way and can’t seem to move on. When you find your mind wandering to situations or incidents that have happened, you are living in the past. Whether you are experiencing regret, sorrow, guilt, shame or a number of other lower vibrational anxieties, you need to let go and detach.
Detaching from your past
This time of the year sometimes gives rise to uncomfortable ‘quiet moments’ where there is nothing to do and we are faced with the possibility of ‘inner reflection’. These situations are sometimes mistaken for depression or that feeling of being ‘let down’ by the holidays for not living up to your expectations, or — perhaps, living up too much to your expectations and now you have nothing to look forward to. Sound familiar?
“These issues that we sweep under the rug are lessons.”
These times should be taken to explore the residue of past reflections. Is there something that you have been burying down, deep inside? Something that yearns to be re-addressed but you simply don’t feel like giving it an audience for fear of having to ‘feel’ all over again?
These issues that we sweep under the rug are lessons. In order to walk through, or pass, a lesson, we must face it. This can sometimes be painful but it is necessary. It may be initially an uncomfortable issue to reconstitute but when you have seen the lesson that you have gleaned from it, you can put it to rest forever. Never having to face that feeling of unresolved emotion trying to rear its head at you.
“You are always capable of graduating from the class of karma.”
We are here to explore and experience. Some of these experiences are brought over from past lives or early childhood traumas. You are always capable of graduating from the class of karma. You never set up anything for yourself that you cannot handle. With courage in your toolkit, you can search the hidden meanings of your unresolved issues and find the lessons so that you can graduate to the next level of learning.
You are the driver
Only you can do this as no-one else knows your inner workings. Never look outside of yourself to anyone or anything to ‘fix’ you. Only you can do that. You can seek advice and help along your path but inevitably, you do need to do the work.
“Have both your feet firmly in the present!”
What better way to start the new year than to truly start it afresh? Face your ‘demons’ with compassion and a yearning to learn from past mistakes and you will be creating a much brighter future for yourself without the need to constantly have one foot in the past. Have both your feet firmly in the present!
Good luck on your journey into the new year and I wish you all the best life you can possibly dream up for yourself.
