“Life is just a mirror, and what you see out there, you must first see inside of you.” Wally ‘Famous’ Amos
“For life is the mirror of king and slave. ‘Tis just what you are and do; Then give to the world the best you have, And the best will come back to you.” Madeline Bridges
So often we desire change in our lives and set forth madly to bring it about. Then as we fail to find the people, money, ideas, or means to do so, we either become even more desperate, or we simply give up. Desperation attracts desperation in all its ugly forms: fear, greed, anger, resentment, insecurity, etc. Surrender may appear as addiction, codependency, abuse, or depression. This certainly does not paint a pretty picture, and it begs the question: HOW can we make POSITIVE CHANGE from where we are RIGHT NOW?
We humans are indeed funny creatures. We try everything to avoid dealing (healing). We let our brains carry us away in work, school, fantasy, or fiction. We check out emotionally so we don’t have to face things. Eventually, when we’re tired of running or hiding, we find ourselves squarely facing that which we’ve avoided. How long this takes is entirely up to us, but the road always leads back to that unattended, still unhealed wound.
How we choose to heal our wounds is a personal journey. Some seek professional help. Some seek spiritual guidance. Some opt for self-help. Many combine methods. Whatever our Journey, it is not until we walk that walk that we finally see the amazing beauty of our healed, transformed self. We are not who we were before that wound. We are not who we were as we avoided it. We are forever changed, and in all cases this is in a BRIGHTER, more BEAUTIFUL way!
As we heal the broken parts of ourselves, we discover to our surprise that we are becoming someone beyond who we ever could have imagined we could be. We are stronger than we dreamed possible. We shine inconceivably Brighter. We even catch ourselves helping those stuck where we were to Trust and Let Go. Yes, it is then we who shine Light in dark places, and no words can capture our deep gratitude or how we are moved as we begin attracting others who are also operating at this higher frequency, and together we grow exponentially.
This is not my truth. This is Truth. You and I and everyone can and should experience this. There is a price. We have to heal to grow. We all deserve to take this Journey to our highest Self; that is why we are here. That is our Journey of Possibilities! Namaste.
