We all have a choice, we can be bound to those memories of pain or we can forgive and move forward. Today I realized that I can truly be free from ill feelings that haunt me as a result of painful memories and so can you. So, what do I mean by this, do you ever have a moment when an ill memory surface from you past and it makes you feel absolutely horrid, gripped in the place as if it were happening all over again. The moment when you feel fear, pain, frustration, regret and ever formidable feeling comes rushing back. Yes, we all have them, and when we do we have a choice, we can chose to be gripped by that moment and push it back down or we can face it with love and forgiveness. I believe that putting some “love on it” is the cure. When these memories come up, it’s an opportunity to heal. It’s an opportunity to release and free yourself. It’s an opportunity to forgive and send love to that person or event from your past or even yourself.
So, perhaps you have been working on forgiveness, and you felt like you did a whole lotta forgivin so far… well that’s wonderful ! Or, perhaps, you are not ready to put in the effort yet, that’s okay too, move at your own pace. Here’s the thing, regardless of all the structured efforts we put in, there a things pushed so deep that we haven’t reached them yet, sometimes they are triggered through music, visuals, foods, and any other way that tantalize our senses and bring forth memories. We love when this happens in a feel good way, we call this nostalgia, but when this happens and we feel pain we are immediately ready to push it away.
I give your courage today, I give you permission to deal with those feelings and memories, you are safe and you are loved. It’s okay. You don’t have to continue to run, you can release and be free.
Here’s some tips:
1. Make up your mind that when a bad memory comes to you, you will address it in that moment; give yourself full permission to deal. Your okay, your safe and it’s the past, you are not in that place anymore.
2. When the memory comes to you explore it, feel those feelings, they are real, maybe you couldn’t deal with it at the time, and so now is the time; so that you can be free. Just feel those feelings, give yourself a moment to go back there, and see the situation. It’s okay.
3. Release compassion on the situation, on everyone involved, this includes you ! Sometimes, we have memories that come back as a result of regret.
4. Put some ”love on it”
Today, I woke up with the intention to take care of myself, to do some fabulous body movement, drink a green smoothie and concentrate on how I feel physically. I am currently postpartum 5 months via 2nd c-section. I realize today, that I have some building up to do !! and I am definitely up for the challenge. But, anywho, as I came down from my workout, and enjoyed a nice long shower, I had what I call a
“Heart Moment” this is when I have a nice heart-to-heart with myself lol
Well, I realized, one sure thing today, if I don’t care for myself, I can’t care for others.. I know, I have heard and said this a million times before, “we as women must take care of ourselves, if we want to care for others”…
But today was different, I had an internal dialogue about feeling selfish. I know, that I have proclaimed that I must take care of myself first, and if I don’t, I won’t have it for anyone else !! I have shouted this to the heavens.. but deep, deep, deep down I felt scared and helpless. I felt like if I really took care of myself, I would be taking from those that depend on me.. I would be selfish. After all, they depended on me. I pour and pour and they take and take, and it’s been okay for so long for so many women. I seen this in my mother, my grandmother, this is how it is suppose to be right ????
Today, I had this feeling, this inclination that said “No, I don’t think this is right for me anymore” This inclination has blossomed into a new belief.. our beliefs shape our thoughts and our thoughts shape our reality.
I decided that taking care of myself is Love, it’s real Love. It’s the same Love that I give to others, it’s the same energy that I allows me to pour out on the world. Why not use some of this for myself ? Why not show myself a ‘lil love today, by moving my body and drinking a smoothie? Those are little things that will improve my quality of life, right ?
Consequently, it will reflect in those around me. By caring for myself, I will better care for others, because I will be coming from a place of totality. A place where there is no lack. Wholeness..
The truth is we have been trained, to care for others, we are given toy kitchen sets and baby dolls as gifts at very young ages. This is the reality that we as a society has constructed for our gender. And that’s okay, I love to care for those around me… Giving of myself makes my heart sing with so much glee.. It’s my passion.. It’s all things beautiful and so incredibly feminine.
It can be an ugly thing, when we are pouring out so much, that we become dry. Leading to bitterness and regret and fear. I know that I experience fear all the time, fear of the unknown, fear of my relationships, fear of the idea of really loving myself…
Fear can be gripping and immobilizing, but what I learned today, was a
BREAK THROUGH !!!!
My heart spoke and I am running with it !!!
Yes, loving myself through self-care and developing rituals is Right !! It’s not selfish at all !! and
By loving myself in this way…the fear of everything !! Has decreased…
I understand this, when there is an ongoing flow of Love—- Fear has to cease, feelings of Peace and Joy and Safety Rises..
Honestly feel freakin Awesome!!!
Wow, all I did was moved my bones and had a green smoothie, now imagine, how we can feel by making this a habit, without the guilt. We can change the world !
Amazing, just a ‘lil love dust sprinkled on ME, with intention.. allowed me to open my heart to the possibility of caring for myself without guilt and fear.
Indeed Love begets Love and this is not selfish.
The Mantra for the day: Self-Love is not Selfish.
Peace and Blessings,
I am inspired.
You’ve got to find what you love and let it kill you ~Kinky Friedman
I am in Death, dieing daily as we speak, I have laid down my life for my dream of Living a Life of Spiritual Service. I honor my Creator, and Ancestors and all the Spirits who walk with me, for my Duty of Mediumship. I am a Messenger, Healer and Transformer for the Divine. I have fully accepted this Call. I have been told that I am a Vodou Priestess and to stop draggin my feet. However, I know that this is all a process, that I must heal my womb as this is my Shadow, I must reconcile and honor the Ancestors of this land, in other words, there is some things I must do before, I officially initiate in any Path. I know the only way to get to where I am destined is by connecting with the Goddess in me, The Divine Feminine that has always been there.
So, here as I express myself through readings and sharing my insights and as I learn to do Works through Spirit. I must learn to do it for myself First. As all I can conceive is Service. I trust that everything will come, I have the vision. I am dieing for it and it’s a process right now. Healing my Womb.. Connecting to the Goddess of my Womb and connecting this with my Ancestors it’s my mission right now. While balancing my career,family, friends and my Dream of full time Spiritual Service.. it can be taxing, living is Spirit and bringing it to Earth. I know that I must go through this, or else I won’t be no good to myself or anybody else.
So I die.
I die in faith and I know my Resurrection will inevitably come.
All I can say, and it’s what I believe, I will go through this with ease and grace, until I realize my vision that’s in reach.
What are your willing to Die for ?
What’s Killing you Right Now?
