The Body is Programmed Backwards

Our body seems to be “programmed backwards” whereby it holds onto our past experiences instead of letting them go. The story I was shown is that there were many times in human history where it wasn’t safe to speak our truth. If our beliefs differed from the predominate religion, we were imprisoned, tortured and killed. Our human bodies began holding back any differing truths and opinions including holding back how we were feeling about our reality which caused experiences to stay “stuck” or “trapped” rather than releasing. This has become a part of our human energy field which includes our chakra system and etheric body (the blueprint of our mind, emotions & body). 

Our body has become so used to holding onto past experiences that it believes it is its past experiences. Any problems that have been experienced have become a part of our identity which holds us back from learning.

We are on this planet and in these bodies to learn certain lessons. Its all about the learning. We are Divine Beings having a human experience and these experiences are to give us rich depth and new understanding.

To help your body let go of old experiences that do not make you happy, talk to your body like you would a child who needs reassurance:  "Body you can let go of these old experiences, memories and emotions now--they are not who you are.  These experiences are all done now--let go and feel the love and beauty of your true nature."

Remind your body regularly that it doesn't have to hold on to the past.   I have a sign up on my bedroom mirror that says, "I am a Divine Being having a Human Experience."  So are you--give it a try.

Guilt and Lack of Forgiveness Keep Us Stuck

Guilt is meant to be a signal letting us know that something needs to change. Once the lesson is learned, it’s meant to be released. If it’s not released, it turns into a toxic block that keeps us from moving forward in life. Unreleased guilt turns into harsh self-judgment, shame, and lack of forgiveness for self which are the crux of what keeps us from happiness, self awareness, and enlightenment. 

Your body is a barometer telling you whether you're loving yourself or holding onto lack of forgiveness and the emotions that go with it.  To get in touch with your body's wisdom, close your eyes and pay attention to how it feels.  Does it feel tense anywhere?  Do you feel grief or anger? Is there pain anywhere?  Does any part of your body stand out in anyway?  

If, for example, you feel tension and grief in your heart, exclusively focus on your heart.  If your mind wanders from focusing on your heart, bring your focus back to your heart.  As you keep your focus on your heart, you may feel more grief.  Stay present to the grief.  As you do this, the grief will begin to release.  Underneath it you may see yourself as a child.  Stay focused on your child self.  As you stay focused on her/him, your child may "tell you" through pictures or words, what's causing the grief.  Stay with what you're shown or hear and you will release more tension and grief.  Stay with whatever you feel or shows up for you without trying to understand it or fix it--just be present to it. 

We all have times where our bodies are resistant to letting go of past pain and tension.  Our bodies may become afraid of feeling the emotions as they release. Talk to your body:  "body these are old emotions--whatever caused this is all done now.  The pain you feel wants to release so let go and you will feel much better and lighter."  

Be patient if your body is resistant.  You may need to stay with the tension and emotions stored in your body for a few days before it releases but that is okay. Your body may be holding on to a number of layers of emotions and tensions due to the past but that is okay too.  Your body needs a loving, accepting focus. Love and acceptance will replace the tension and emotions and heal you. 

With patience and tenacity, you are able to let go of the past--give it a try.

Turning Problems into Lessons

My last post talked about the need to forgive ourselves and master certain issues in our lives.  Because we're here to gain mastery, there are no problems only lessons to be learned.

I see the soul anchored at the heart. The soul comes into physical form with certain lessons it wants to learn. You could say that it’s like a computer chip that carries what you’ve come to learn and who you’ve come to learn them with. This information is activated when the timing is right and then puts out a signal that its time to learn these lessons.  You then attract the people and situations that can help you learn the most.  Some of these people and situations may be challenging but you're up for the challenge--you've freely chosen to learn these important lessons so you can move into higher consciousness and wisdom.  

Once a part of the lesson has been learned, some of the people you've chosen to experience this segment with with will leave your life and some will stay.  Its all part of the plan.  There is no loss only lessons learned and completed.

My dear cousin said to me during hospice, after a near death experience:  "I could see that we're all like actors and actresses on a stage.  I've completed my role here--I'm off to pick a new role now."  Well said.

We are all masters in training.  What are your experiences as a "master in training" whereby you are attracting more complicated lessons as you move forward with more inner wisdom and depth?  Write a comment on the  link below so we can all benefit from your wisdom.

Five Things I’d Like You to Remember

With the Spring equinox energies here, I'm finding that these intense energies are giving us an opportunity to do some deep internal Spring cleaning.  I'd like you to remember the following five things as you're going through the process of cleansing issues on a mental, emotional, and  physical level so you can free yourself up from the past:

1. There is no such thing as karma where we deserve to be punished due to being “bad“ in other lifetimes. The main reason we experience difficulties is because we haven’t forgiven ourselves.

2. If we’ve had a lifetime where we did things we regret and we don’t forgive ourselves, we duplicate it in another lifetime with people who are playing the role of what we thought was so “bad” about ourselves.

3. We can forgive these people and, through forgiving them, forgive ourselves.

4. We come to “master” certain issues. That’s why the issues come back again and again. As an example, if we have ten levels of mastery and you’re at level 5, you still have five levels of mastery to attain. Each level may become more complicated to see how your skill has increased.

5. You may feel worst before better since the body feels the past pain as its trying to release it. Do not create a new story around the old painful story. Be with the discomfort without trying to figure it out and fix it and ask your body to let it go.
