Have you ever spent a day shopping when each time you buy something you pick up a bag and carry it around? At the end of the day you come home, put your bags on the floor and then suddenly realise how tired you are?
Healing can be a little bit like that. Over time you pick up so much emotional pain and psychic weight you don’t realise how much you are carrying yet you keep going because you have to.
Taking a moment to put down the emotional and psychic weight can be painful. Just like your arms ache after putting down lots of shopping bags, your body can ache when you let go of emotional pain, stress and tension. But it’s a good kind of ache.
You can visualise someone who doesn’t let go of their psychic weight getting heavier and heavier, loosing their zest for life, loosing hope, not able to look at the sky anymore but trudging along looking at their feet and at the ground, slowing down with every step until they stop and cannot go on any longer. This to me depicts a state of depression, severe anxiety and overwhelm.
Healing can Hurt
So we have to make a choice, either stay in the heaviness, or heal and move on from it. Both of these paths can hurt. Staying with the psychic weight lowers the frequency and vibration of your energies and keeps you trapped in resonance with grief, anxiety, pain, fear, jealousy, etc. It is a comfortable sort of pain, a familiar one, leading to a life where you’re coping and surviving, not living. Letting go of the psychic weight triggers a healing process which is unpredictable, takes time, can hurt, can make you sick, but ultimately leads to you being able to embody higher frequencies of energy, where you resonate with peace, joy, inspiration, creativity, vibrancy, love and gratitude.
Healing is not a Straight Line.
Depending on your spiritual blueprint, your physical body, your weaknesses, your strengths, your character, your personality (etc etc) you will be on a unique journey from here to there, and we cannot predict the ‘how”.
Just like this image, healing may make you feel like you’re going around in circles, like you’re going backwards just as much as forwards, like you loose your way, or are not sure where you’re headed, or if you’re healing at all. Thats the process, I’ve been through it and I think you have too. And just when you think you’ve healed something, then something else shows up to be healed. Oy vey! It never seems to end. But as Richard Bach says “Here is a test to find whether your mission on earth is finished: If you’re alive, it isn’t.”
Your Life is an Opportunity to Raise your Vibration
When you shine your light you bring more light into to the world. If you are here, then this is your work – to choose light over dark, and to go through the process of healing no matter how difficult it may be. And it may be difficult – it was difficult for me. But I got through it, and so can you, if you put your heart and mind into it.
