Healing Is Freedom!
The thought of healing sometimes scares me. In the beginning stages of healing, my mind begins to race, pondering over many questions. “Am I truly ready to let go of my past? Am I really willing to pack up all of these painful and exhausting emotions and do I fully desire to live forward?” If I am being honest, my first thought would be “no…” No, I am not ready to let go of my emotional burdens, because they have become a part of me! “How do I live forward? How will I bounce back and become myself again? and how do I stand on my own?” After wondering and dancing with the angel of peace, I will share with you a reflection of my truth.
Have ever heard the saying, “the mind is a terrible thing to waste?” Well, I am here to tell you that IT IS! Our minds are the most sensitive part of our body. It’s most receptive to all information and emotional connections. If the mind lacks proper care, then its capabilities are wasted. Take control over your sanity. In the process of healing you must first try to focus on the stability of your mental state. This process forces you to analyze the impact of traumatic situations; reflect on the effect of these impacts, and finally, learn from your pain in order to walk in the steps towards freedom.
The mind instructs the flesh to function and guides the heart to feel. The heart opens the door for you to feel; and the ability to feel is what trauma tires to attach to. At a point in my life, I was hurt, and I felt as though I couldn’t bounce back. It shocked me because I didn’t know that I was able to feel this kind of pain. My heart felt as though it was snatched out and literally thrown against a brick wall. For a long time, I didn’t want to let go of that feeling. Maybe, because it gave me free access to dwell over what could have been, or what I thought it should have been. The heart ultimately allowed me to feel. I once read that “Our hearts often lead us into sorrowful places but in the end, it gives us a greater understanding of what it means to love and be free”. I had to learn how to let my hurt go, so my heart could fly again. Often times we don’t allow our hearts to feel that painful emotion, but even if it’s only for a second; know that it will teach your heart what to allow, and what not to accept.
Hurt and traumatic experience can bring heartfelt damage, and even make you feel as though your soul was disrespected. Keep in mind that you have the power to release, so allow your soul to explore.
Lastly, remember, your soul is precious, your soul is you and you only have one, so take care of it!
Open your pathway to freedom by starting the process of healing your mind, heart and soul.
Your future will thank you...
As always from my heart to yours
