The Jewish New Year and Another Golden Opportunity to

Get Yourself Out of the Shadow of the Past

This was originally posted in  2006 on my Mindfulness Journal but it is appropriate enough today to warrant a reblog here.

You don’t have to be Jewish to use this opportunity. It is simply another chance to journey within and see what we find, explore the inner workings of our soul and try and move forward into a new place. There will always be things which need to be questioned and challenged, and always new ways and opportunities to make profound changes which will help us move forward in our Sacred Contract, our reason for being here.

Let us all pray that we be granted the guidance, clarity and direction we need, as well as the wisdom to understand and perceive the blessings given to us, no matter what form or disguise they may take.

This would be a good time to take a minute and go back and check out the previous post on Living in the Shadow of the Past and the Power of Forgiveness and finding the ways to release all that is no longer necessary or healthy for us in the coming New Year. It would also be a wonderful time to begin doing the forgiveness exercise explained in the post for all those in your life who you still need to forgive. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to discard everything which we do not need to move forward in peace, tranquility, love, laughter and good health. Let’s move out of the Shadow of the Past into a beautiful, sunny and tranquil New Year.

I am now reading a book which I highly recommend to all by Caroline Myss, author of Anatomy of the Spirit and Sacred Contracts. Her latest book is called Invisible Acts of Power-Personal Choices That Create Miracles-quite amazing and highly recommended. I would like to end this post by sharing with you the following quote (pp.58) from the book since it gives amazing insights into many things we have discussed and opens doors to much further thought. If you already know these things, than think about them often. If this is the first time you are encountering these ideas, than think about them deeply and begin to question and contemplate. You will get much joy from understanding the ideas.

  • You are where you are supposed to be and in every moment there is an opportunity to seerve another or to receive support.
  • There are no such things as coincidences or accidents. Look for the meaning in your synchronistic encounters.
  • Any form of assistance you offer is an act of healing.
  • Anything you do for others, as well as the support you receive in your own life, has healing consequences for the whole human community.
  • You will always receive help within a second of a prayer. To recognize the help, you must see everything in your life from that second on as a part of the answer to your prayer.
  • Everything you do consciously is an invisible act of power.

SHANA TOVA TO ALL…A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Just for Today I Will Love and Respect Every Living Creature

thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself…leviticus 19:18

If we look at the above, the fourth of the Reiki Principles, it appears to be fairly straightforward.  It is pretty obvious to us that one of the most important things in this world is to love and respect others, show compassion and tolerance, patience and understanding etc.  We also know that we must be kind to EVERY living being and this would of course include animals, insects, plants etc., etc.

The original wording of the principle as stated by Dr. Usui is slightly different, but the message is more easily understood with the above paraphrase which I prefer using in my Reiki classes and in my own daily meditation practice.

And the profoundness of the principle, if we truly think about it, opens the door to an entirely new way of perceiving the ups and downs of our lives, of relating to instances where we feel we have been wronged by someone, or taken advantage of, even purposely hurt or embarrassed, or injured in any way. Of relating to the different people who come into our lives and the way we accept and embrace all that is sent our way by God and the Universe.

In addition, if we add just two small words to the above principle, it changes the impact and intent even more deeply.

Just for Today I will Love and Respect Every Living Creature…INCLUDING MYSELF!!  If we do not truly love ourselves, how can we possibly love and respect our neighbor??

I will try and give insights into the following two questions we must try to answer:

1.  Can we truly love and respect others if we don’t do the same for ourselves

2.  Can we truly be expected to love and respect EVERYone??

Before going any further into the idea of loving even those who we perceive as causing us pain or wishing us ill, let us, just for a moment, think about our relationship with ourselves.

  • Do you love yourself?
  • Are you proud of yourself?
  • Do you respect yourself?
  • Do you take yourself for granted?
  • Do you put yourself down?
  • Do you say unkind things about yourself ?

Just for the next week, in addition to saying this principle each day with your daily prayers, meditation or whatever your regular practice is, try delving a little deeper into it.  Pay attention during the day to the thoughts that you have regarding the things you do.  Check the impulse to criticize yourself, or be compassionate with yourself. Note how you feel when you make a wrong decision, or get lost on the highway, or break a dish you are washing, or burn the supper, or simply forget to do something important.  What feelings do you have, what words fill your head at the moment (stupid, clumsy, thoughtless, lazy). What sensations do you feel physically in your body?  Where? Are you automatically hard on yourself, or, perhaps, compassionate and understanding.

Think about this for a week, and I think you will be quite surprised at what you find.  Many of us cannot even say out loud “I love myself”, “I think I am great”, “I am perfect just as I am”, etc., but even those of us who CAN say these things and truly mean them, are still too often overly critical of ourselves.

I would even think to perhaps state the principle in a little different way.  Instead of “Just for today I will love and respect every living creature…(including myself)”…How about:  “Just for today I will love and respect myself in the same way I imagine I love and respect every other living creature” .  Said in that way, it might make it easier for us to realize how much more compassionate we can be with others, how much more tolerant and understanding, how much more patient and loving, than we tend to be with ourselves.

Like a caring mother

Holding and guarding the life

Of her only child,

So with a boundless heart

Hold yourself…. And all beings

…Buddha

“We might quite readily offer such care to others, but we can learn to offer this same kind of gentle attention to ourselves.  With the tenderness we might bring to stroking the cheek of a sleeping child, we can softly place a hand on our own cheek or heart.  We can comfort ourselves with words of kindness and understanding. ” Radical Acceptance”, Tara Brach, PhD.

For once again, if we do not GENUINELY love and respect ourselves, our pretense at loving and respecting every living creature is just that…pretense… Self love is the first step in truly loving our fellow creatures.  And when we love and respect ourselves, everything and anything that happens to us, can be dealt with in a healthy way.

Only when we come to terms with our own shortcomings and learn to accept ourselves exactly as we are, to extend unconditional love to the beautiful person we are, to be compassionate with ourselves even when we are not all we expected of ourselves, to love and respect ourselves and recognize the beauty of our soul within…to feel worthy and deserving and freely offer praise and genuine respect to ourselves…only when we cherish our own being, no matter where we may find ourselves at a particular moment, or stage in our lives, only when we offer ourselves encouragement and love at each step along the way and appreciate our accomplishments-no matter how small, only when we stop taking ourselves and our own needs and wants for granted and understand that we are just as worthy and deserving as everyone else…only when we truly love and respect ourselves can we begin to truly love the next person.

Many people will say “I don’t expect anything from the next person (my children, my spouse, my co-workers, etc.) that I don’t expect from myself.”  Well, perhaps we are much too hard on ourselves!  Others find it easy to extend loving-kindness, compassion, patience, tolerance, understanding, forgiveness and encouragement to others, while they dole out to themselves judgment, blame, anger, belittling words, harsh accusations, lack of forgiveness, etc.

But it is only when we can find the way to love ourselves unconditionally that we can truly understand the words:

thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself...leviticus 19:18

The idea has obviously been around for a long time and is not a new concept developed by Dr. Usui… The Great Hebrew Sage Rabbi Akiva said “This is the most important point in the Torah…the rest is just commentary”.

The idea of loving the next person as we love ourselves becomes very easy as we simply extend the same gracious and loving attention to everyone that we do to ourselves.

And that will bring us to the second part of this discussion…loving and respecting EVERY living creature:

Let us look at this idea of loving and respecting EVERYone …. This would seem almost impossible when we think of some of the strange, difficult, inconsiderate, spiteful and even abusive people who we meet in our lifetime.    But there is a profound lesson in extending understanding, forgiveness, compassion , patience and tolerance to those who truly wish us ill.  It brings us once again in contact with the idea of FAITH…faith that God is sending these people into our lives for a loving purpose…no matter difficult that may be for us to see.

(see my blog post re: forgiveness at this link: https://notinindia2012.wordpress.com/2012/02/02/living-in-the-shadow-of-the-past-and-the-power-of-forgiveness/  )

We must learn to Cherish those we dislike, even those we perceive as enemies, for they are gifts from God and we must be thankful for this blessing and pray for the wisdom to learn the lesson these people have been sent to teach us

We draw to us those who will help us learn about ourselves.  Each time we are presented with a challenge dealing with another, we are really being presented with an opportunity to look inside ourselves to see what about us it is that needs working on, so that we may grow.

The idea of loving each and every person, no matter what, is quite difficult, almost impossible, but I present the idea to you for further thought and consideration, together with the following collection of quotes and insights: 

In the practice of tolerance, one’s enemy is the best teacher.
HH Dalai Lama

Everything that irritates us about others
Can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
Carl Jung (1875-1961),
Psychologist ~

I have learned silence from the talkative,
tolerance from the intolerant
and kindness from the unkind.
I should not be ungrateful to those teachers.
Kahlil Gibran ~

What angers us in another person
is more often than not an unhealed aspect of ourselves.
If we had already resolved that particular issue,
we would not be irritated by its reflection back to us.
Simon Peter Fuller
(from ‘Rising Out of Chaos’) ~

No-one can make you feel inferior
without your consent.
Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962) ~

Nothing can hurt you
unless you give it the power to do so

A Course in Miracles ~~

The main teachers of patience are our enemies.

HH Dalai Lama

Every person sent to us is a blessing meant to teach us a lesson we need to learn.

I leave you with the above thoughts and truly hope you will begin to ponder your own actions on a daily level regarding the different ways you relate to yourself and your Being.  The thoughts you generate regarding yourself, the feelings you encounter on both the emotional and physical levels when you “do something wrong” or feel dissatisfied with yourself, the amount of loving kindness and compassion , love and respect ,you extend towards yourself each day, etc.

I wish you all much love and compassion, patience and tolerance and freedom from fear to accept and embrace all that is sent your way by God and His Loving Universe.

with love light and JOY

Below is a mail I received from Tom, Don Thomas, a Shaman, and it was so perfectly said, that I felt I would share it with you all as he wrote it.  I have his permission and suggest you check out his website at the end of the post

My Dear Sisters and Brothers,

 I have found that low self-esteem and lack of self-love are issues often found together. If you suffer from low self-esteem, it is possible that the root cause is due to insufficient self-love.

 If you find it difficult to obtain unconditional love and acceptance for yourself or loving yourself feels unnatural, is it likely that your mind has been embedded with self sabotaging thoughts a long time.

 Nothing will be any different until you make a conscious decision to change and you have that power to change!  When you do not unconditionally love and accept yourself, you are basically telling the Universe that you are unworthy or undeserving of any love, acceptance or positive outcomes that have the same vibrational match as unconditional love and acceptance.   

Learning to unconditionally love and accept yourself starts with making a conscious decision with an intention to become happy and lead a fulfilled life. When you do not unconditionally love and accept yourself and suffer from low self-esteem, it is almost impossible to ever reach the potential that you suspect you have.

 When you make a decision to unconditionally love and accept yourself, you are really saying that you want to come alive. You accept that you are responsible for the outcomes that you experience in your life and would like yourself to shine from living a fulfilling life.

  I have compiled a list of suggestions on “How to unconditionally love and accept yourself”, therefore, if you’ve decided to unconditionally love and accept yourself here are my 18 suggestions which I believe can be helpful in fulfilling your decision:

 1. Fall in love with yourself. Think about what makes you you. Just like a flower that needs watering to grow, learn to nurture yourself in every way. Love yourself for all the good that you are and accept your flaws and the fact that you are imperfect. This does not mean that you do not learn to change from your shortcomings; instead, you are being gentle and kind to yourself despite your “flaws”. Look in the mirror and fall in love with the reflection that is You. Speak loving thoughts to yourself and believe in you by nurturing this self love with corresponding thoughts, words and deeds.

 2. Eliminate Self Criticism. Do you often berate yourself over the tiniest things? Is there a little voice inside your head that often tells you that you are no good because you are stupid or make mistakes? If you find that you criticize yourself often, make an effort to stop the self-criticism. Remember I can is 100 times more important than IQ.

 3. Be Kind And Positive. When you start to think kindly and positively about yourself, the love you have for yourself naturally grows. Make it a habit to praise yourself everyday when you talk to yourself and in the front of the mirror. Because of such thoughts, you then naturally undertake empowering actions that support your development.

 4. Acknowledge Your Effort. It is not always about winning or being on top in everything that you do. Many times, it is the effort that counts! Acknowledge that you have done your best, even if you have not produced tangible results and learn from your efforts.  

 5. Let Go Of Worry. Unconditionally loving and accepting yourself requires you to let go of your worry. Constant worrying is a horrible way to live a life for it is wasted energy.  Worry does not help any way. It cannot, on its own, make things happen. Only wise actions can! So instead of worrying, spend time thinking about what you can do to help the situation. If there is something you need to do then do it.  If the situation is beyond your control, then make a request to the Great Spirit for what you want. Next, surrender your outcome.

 6. Trust Yourself. Have confidence in your abilities. Know that you have the ability to make important changes for yourself as long as you put your heart in it. You can also support yourself by visualizing desired outcomes.

 7. Forgive Yourself. If you have made mistakes in the past that have caused you to feel less worthy, then you need to forgive yourself. All of us make mistakes; so there really is no need to beat yourself up over them. Also, if you have been carrying around baggage of emotional hurt because of a childhood trauma, learn to forgive yourself and anyone else who may have caused your pain.  

 8. Be Truthful To Yourself. Unconditionally loving and accepting yourself requires you to be truthful about your own feelings. If you are happy, acknowledge the joy. If you are sad, acknowledge the sorrow. When you are truthful about your feelings, you do not try to lie to yourself or seek to bury your negative emotions. Instead, acknowledging what you feel provides a good guide to what your thoughts are. As we all know, thoughts can be changed, so that healing and self growth can take place.

 9. Grow Spiritually. When you spend time growing spiritually, unconditional love and acceptance of yourself becomes automatic. You become more peaceful, connected, kind, loving and compassionate. You nurture a mind that grows more beautiful by the day. You naturally love yourself in the process.

 10. Make Positive Affirmations Everyday. Reframe your mental outlook with positive affirmations. For instance, say this to yourself “I love and accept myself completely and unconditionally.” Read your affirmations out loud several times a day and then incorporate them into actions that are unconditionally loving and accepting.

 11. Express Gratitude. Express gratitude for the person that you are. For instance, cultivate an appreciation for your strengths and gifts. Also, feel a sense of gratitude that you are alive and well, and fully capable of making a difference in your life. Look for what is right and see all the many blessings in your life which are overlooked or minimized when we only focus on what we don’t have.

  12. Nurture Your Dreams. Why deny yourself your dreams? When you nurture your dreams, you will love the life that you are leading. Every moment that you live is a joy because you are expressing yourself fully. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do rather than the things you did do.

 13. Boost Your Self Confidence. Make a deliberate attempt to look for opportunities that can help improve your confidence. For instance, if you are particularly good at doing something, set aside more time to indulge and improve your skills on it. Knowing that you have particular gifts and acknowledging them can boost  self-esteem.

 14. Relax. Give yourself space to take breaks every now and then. If you spend your time working, without paying attention to your health, it also means that you do not unconditionally love and accept yourself well enough to take care of your own body. Fill your time with silence, meditations, fun, joy, soothing music and visions of beauty; anything that nourishes your body, mind and spirit.

 15. Have Fun. Inject some fun into your life. Life is meant to be enjoyed. Do not take life or yourself too seriously. If you can think of life in this manner, you automatically relax and quit worrying over things that do not matter.

 16. Look After Your Body. It is important that you strengthen yourself with prayer, proper nutrition and regular exercise. Your body is a temple and you should treat it with respect, love and care. It has been found that the lack of self love is often the root causes of conditions like eating disorders, obesity or even terminal diseases.

 17. Learn To See Beauty. When you learn to see beauty in everything, you will also see beauty in yourself. Thus, stop and smell the flowers. Notice everything. Feel everything. The pink blush of the flowers in your garden, the greenness of the leaves, , the whisper of the gentle wind, or the myriad hues of a setting sun.

 18. Share the Love. Once you have a true feeling for unconditional love and accept of yourself share it with everyone you meet.

 I suggest reflecting on this affirmation to grow your self love: 

 I am me. In the entire world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it.  I own everything about me: my body, my mind, my spirit, all my actions, whether they be to others or myself. I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own my triumphs and successes, my failures and my mistakes.

 Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with myself.  In so doing, I can unconditionally love and accept myself  and be friendly with all my parts. I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know – but as long as I am unconditionally loving and accepting of myself, I can courageously look for solutions to the puzzles and learn more about me to deepen my unconditional love and acceptance of myself.

 However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at any given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new to replace that which I  discarded. I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do. I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me.  I am me and I love and accept me….unconditionally!  

 Happy Valentine’s Day! 

 Peace, Love and Sacred Journey,
Don Thomas

Living in the Shadow of the Past and the Power of Forgiveness

Like your shadow on the sidewalk when the sun shines behind you, holding onto painful past memories darkens each forward step which could instead be filled with light.

UN-Forgiveness is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die

The above statements may seem obvious, and simple, but  they are most profound and warrant further thought and attention.

Holding onto the past is probably the most universal of all human behavior patterns. It is the rare individual who lives his life entirely in the present, unburdened by influences from the past. At the same time, it is one of the main causes of worry, tension, pain, sadness, depression, anger, grief, hate, jealousy, discontent, even physical illnesses – just about everything and anything that each of us would be much better off without.

 

So, how can we rid ourselves of this terrible burden? There is only one way.

Forgiveness!

Forgiveness does not necessarily mean condoning things that happened to us or that were done to us by strangers, and even more difficult to deal with, by those close to us. It means reaching a point in life where we simply decide “Enough!”. I will no longer allow the past to rule my life and take possession of my thoughts, feelings, reactions and dictate the way I live each day. The burden of the past is heavy enough to weigh us down until we are bent over and unable to move, stuck in a place we do not wish to be in, but which we do not have the energy to move out of.

Only by dumping this terrible burden can we again feel light, joyful, fresh, young, energetic, enthusiastic, creative, loving, caring, compassionate, patient and tolerant, content, vibrant and full of peace and tranquility.

I am attaching (at the end of this post) some wonderful short statements, dealing with the power of forgiveness…and how our past effects each step we take in the present.

There are also many wonderful techniques which can help up to  forgive and then easily  release the past and move out of its shadow. I will do my best to describe the one which I find most effective. This is from both personal experience and the experiences of many of my clients who have moved on to wonderful new places in their lives after combining the technique with other subtle forms of energy work such as Reiki and Bach Flower Remedies-but it is a technique which can work entirely on its own if taken seriously and done properly and with intent.

Forgiveness Exercise:

  1. Using a full size notebook or pad (A4, letter size), take a page and fold it in half lengthwise.
  2. Number each line from 1 to 70.
  3. Choose a person you wish to begin forgiving. This can be as simple as a teacher in the first grade who made you stand in the corner or as deep as an abusive parent. It can be yourself (but this is better left until later on in the forgiveness work) or even God! You may want to begin with something small and move on to the heavier duty things once you get the hang of the exercise, but there is no reason why you cannot “jump right into deep water” if you so choose.
  4. On the left hand side of the page (remember, there is a fold line down the middle of the page), start on line one, and on each line up to 70 write: ” I (your name) completely and totally forgive (name of other person).”
  5. You will write this 70 times.
  6. While writing this short but powerful sentence, thoughts will begin to come up into your head “Why the hell am I doing this?” “This is silly” “There is NO way I will forgive this person”, “Look at what he did to me when he….” Etc., etc. Every single thought, without censorship and without comment , judgment or contemplation, you simply write down on the RIGHT side of the fold. As they come, as they flow, just write and then immediately go back to writing the other sentence 70 times. DO NOT STOP TO READ OR THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE WRITING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FOLD LINE.
  7. Once you have written this 70 times, take the piece of paper and BURN IT.
  8. Do this for a full 7 days FOR EACH PERSON. And burn at the end of each day.
  9. At the beginning of a new week, choose someone new to work on.
  10. As the days go by, the thoughts that immerge from the depths of our subconscious will become less and less. There will probably be no more left by the end of the week regarding the person involved. If there ARE still many thoughts, do the same person for a second full week! But this RARELY happens.

Once the person is taken care of and the papers are burnt, you will feel an enormous lightness overtake you. It is quite remarkable. It really does work!

If something is unclear about the above, please feel free to comment below and I will explain further. I wish you all wonderful new days filled with the relief of “dropping” the weight of the past from your shoulders, and standing tall of joyfully embrace each new day.

…and as promised:  further food for thought regarding forgiveness.

  • “Healing requires taking action–it is not a passive event.’
  •  ‘What drains your spirit drains your body. What fuels your spirit fuels your body.’
  • ‘We have converted our wounds into a type of relationship currency that we use in order to control situations and people.’
  • ‘Healing means getting over the pain, not marketing it.’
  • ‘Therapy is a boat to cross the river, we just have to remember to get off on the other side.’
  • ‘Master your responses to external events–don’t attempt to control them.’
  • ‘Forgiveness is like a rough diet with no payback — you won’t like it until it’s over.’
  • Just let go. Let go of how you thought your life should be, and embrace the life that is trying to work its way into your consciousness.’
  • ‘Forgiveness doesn’t look attractive until we get to the other side.’
  • Present time energy is its own transformer. The more energy you have in present time, the more voltage you can move through you.
  • ‘Call back the energy you are wasting on events of the past.’
  • We are never being punished, only being taught. Everything is a teaching.
  • ‘It goes without saying that not every healing crisis will have a ‘fairy-tale ending,’ but every effort you make, regardless of how insignificant it may seem to you, will always bring you closer to a state of spiritual and physical health.’
  • What is wrong with us that we have to have yesterday’s grief with us today?
  • Forgiveness is a path to my inner laboratory.
  • Get bored with your past, it’s over! ‘
  • Release the need to know why things happen the way they do.’ ‘
  • Never look to another person to make you happy–happiness is an internal, personal attitude and responsibility.’
  • ‘Life is essentially a learning experience. Every situation, challenge and relationship contains some message worth learning or teaching to others.’
  • ‘Practice forgiveness of others.’
  • ‘Positive energy works more effectively than negative energy in each and every situation.’ ‘
  • Our emotions reside physically in our bodies and interact with our cells and tissues.’
  • ‘Nothing empowers our ability to heal as much as our love and forgiveness.’
  • ‘The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind.’
  • ‘Spiritual teachings encourage us to grow past and through painful experiences, each of which is a spiritual lesson.’
  • ‘Illness can develop as a consequence of behavioral patterns and attitudes that we do not realize are biologically toxic until they have already become so.’ ‘
  • I am forgiving not for you, but for me. I am forgiving because I want my power back.’
  • ‘Get over it.’
  • ‘Feeling victimized only adds to your illness, and should it become a full state of mind, would qualify as an illness in itself.’
  • ‘We are addicted to the power of the wound.’
  • ‘Release victim consciousness and embrace forgiveness.’
  • We can achieve a genuine sense of peace about life only by releasing our need to know why things happen in terms of human reasoning and by embracing Divine reasoning.’
  • ‘We cannot seek to heal an illness without first looking into what behavioral patterns and attitudes need to be altered in our life.’
  • For every time zone that we are in, other than here, we drain our life energy.
  • Law of the gods: get bitter or better.
  • A forgiving heart is an honest heart.
  • Blame is a form of energetic cancer.
  • If anyone tries to complicate your life – turn and walk away from them
  • If it’s not about you, it’s not about you
  • You can’t understand what you can’t understand
  • Don’t make simplicity hard
  • Your task is to learn the lesson that the teacher has for you rather than to resent the teacher
  • Seen symbolically, our life crises tell us that we need to break free of beliefs that no longer serve our personal development
  • Our lives change externally as we change internally
  • View every experience as a blessing and a remedy that serves your well-being.
  • Illness can be a teacher, companion, or challenge-but not a punishment.
  • Healing requires that you admit the truth about yourself.
  • Embrace the changes in your life.
  • Bless your difficulties and ask to see their hidden guidance.
  • Be mindful of how often you judge others.
  • Become mindful of your reasons to stay angry
  • To be unable to forgive is to live in hell, burdened, miserable, angry
  • Get in present time and forgive the people who have hurt you
  • We are not meant to stay wounded
  • To blame the other players in our drama for helping to teach us what we need to learn is the height of foolishness
  • Understand that all experiences either make you bitter or better
  • Practice the art of transformation
  • Become mindful that remaining in a conflict is a choice
  • Learn that the way to set change in motion is to bless and appreciate even the most difficult parts of our life
  • Recognize whether you love yourself enough to heal
  • Realize you choose to stay angry when you can choose to heal
  • Sometimes the strings to our past are burned because we need a new beginning

 
With much love, light, health, tranquility and JOY.
Jane
