Healing is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself however in the midst of the gift are a few hidden truths that you only start to discover once your path is set.
Not everyone cares:
We all feel that we should be supported by the people who love us as we start our journey towards healing. The truth is though that most people who know you want you to stay the same. Although hard to believe it is because they know your triggers and the patterns they run with you. As you start to heal your past you change and that can be scary for some. The usual patterns no longer apply and they will start to lose control over you. Co-dependent relationships it will become harder to maintain and will become an issue for you and the other person.
You will lose friends:
Friends will starts to drift away as you change. You will find more and more that you lose contact with old friends that don’t see the change in you as positive. Additionally you will find that you don’t have the same things in common anymore. As your vibration increases you will naturally let go of relationships that don’t serve you. There is a positive side here though, those who do support your change will stay and their vibrations will increase as well.
You will fail – many times:
There will be days where your one-point will shift, your emotions will rule as they did before and the “itty bitty shitty committee” in your mind will run wild. However the good news here is that as you heal you will be able to return to a neutral state quicker. Don’t get discouraged when you feel as if you are taking one step forward and two steps back, you are not truly, we continually come back to the things we thought we knew to gain a deeper understanding. Also an unhealed pain or pattern will keep showing up in your life until it is healed. The Universe gives us many opportunities to heal all the triggers and pain patterns we run in our lives. Healing takes determination and strength of will.
Change is difficult:
Staying the same is so much easier than healing that it could be tempting to give up. You already know everything about your life and changing takes you into the unknown. The unknown is a place where nothing you do can be anticipated. You don’t know how you will respond to anything and everyday will be a balancing act between the past, present and even the future as you start to speculate what the next test will be. However we know that pain is a great motivator for moving forward as long as you move through the fear of what the unknown might look like. The trick is to remain in the present and deal only with one thing at a time. Baby steps…
Even though these truths seem challenging healing is still the best thing you can for yourself. Imagine a life where you feel balanced and whole. Imagine a life where remembering the past is painless and new challenges are dealt with courageously without causing blame or shame. It is all worth it because in the end you get to SHINE….
Love & Light
