Beyond Affirmations

Have you ever been in a situation where you were so upset, so frustrated, angry or hurt that you just needed to talk it out? Have you been in that place where if one more person flippantly said, just be positive? They tell you “Oh, I just say this wonderful affirmation and everything feels so much better”, while you grind your teeth and try to keep a smile on your face? Literally forcing yourself to keep from screaming….

OMG! I have so been there. I was so hurt and so mad. I knew I couldn’t pretend it didn’t bother me. I couldn’t stuff it or eat my way through another trauma.

There’s a fine line between burying an issue and dealing with an issue. When we try to ignore it, or forget about it, even eat or drink our way into feeling better we compound the issue.

Yes, Affirmations are powerful miracle workers that raise our vibrations, BUT we can’t use them like another addiction to ignore our true feelings.

Please don’t get me wrong, I am not suggesting you wallow in your pain. I never want someone to create a whole lot of drama around a painful issue. This isn’t about drama or being a victim.

It really helps to talk it out with someone who puts their personal opinions and judgments aside. A person who’s not attached to the outcome can help you re-frame and honor the issue. Look at it from other perspectives and find some peace around it.

Working with a spiritually guided healer can help you in many ways.Their intuitive guidance can help pin point one or more of the following:

1. Is it a pattern?
2. Is it being amplified by a trigger from an original wound?
3. Is it a belief that no longer serves you?
4. Is it a habit?

Never underestimate the power held by any one of the above and know that many of us can identify with more than one. An original wound from abuse as a child can add multiple layers of fear and insecurity to everything that happens in our lives. Add to that if that wound was caused by a parent, someone that is supposed to be trusted, a teacher, clergy, doctor, etc. That wound will influence every thing that happens until its been healed.

Right now, the universal energies coming to bare and change our world for the better is pushing us all to get to our root issues. Clean and clear all those traumas that hold us back. Keep us feeling small, insecure, afraid. Nothing is too small. When you look back, hindsight can give us new vantage points, we may shrug our shoulders and think, oh that’s a long time ago. I worked on that years ago. I’ve forgotten all about that. The universe, in its infinite knowledge will create the perfect reflection, again and again until you look at it, feel it, honor it and put it finally to rest.

I see it again and again, people who have done a lot of work, or just a little and need more. The universe is asking us to go deeper. I keep hearing, clear it, pulling in all the threads, thought patterns, old beliefs, do the work so that you’re ready to traverse the Eye of the Needle.

The Eye of the Needle is small, you must go thru it alone….. no baggage allowed.
