Have you ever heard yourself say you weren’t going to say or do something ever again? Maybe you weren’t going to swear again and out of your mouth comes a swear word. Maybe you are trying not to worry about money these days and catch yourself fretting over money. Maybe you weren’t going to get mad at your partner when they didn’t do what you wanted them to do and all of a sudden you are mad. What do you do in those moments of realizing what just happened?
Allow me to share my story with you. The other day I made a few main dishes for supper. My husband Jimmy was working late and I wanted to have a couple of choices for him to choose from. When he got home I told him he could choose what he wanted to eat. He chose to have some of both main dishes. I said no, he could only have one or the other and he had to choose. As soon as I said ‘you choose’ for the second time, I instantly realized I was not okay with his choice. I also realized I had expectations of him only picking one or the other leaving us with leftovers for the next night. Here I was saying you choose and then I didn’t let him choose. In that moment of awareness, all I could do was laugh at myself. My reaction of not being okay with his choice was right there in front of me to see. Immediately I shared my learning with Jimmy and he enjoyed some of both main dishes for supper.
When I told Jimmy he couldn’t have what he wanted I couldn’t ‘take those words back,’ so to speak. All I could do was ‘work from there’. All I could do was work from that moment of becoming aware and that is the moment the healing inside begins.
Where is ‘there’? ‘There’ can be a moment of time presenting a window of opportunity to heal something inside you. In any moment of reaction there can be a potential ‘there’ which presents the opportunity to heal whatever is bothering you. For example, if you realized you just said something mean to your partner, once the words are out, you are ‘there’ in a moment of awareness. Can you start in that moment of awareness…and work from there?
Everyday life happens. If there are any reactions, these reactions surface reflecting unresolved feelings or incomplete experiences. What’s important is feeling whatever comes up, when it comes up and allowing the energy to move those feelings through. Once you connect to those feelings, they are already on their way to being resolved. This takes very little effort on your part.
Since coming back from India, I have experienced many times when I’ve had trouble finding words for what I’m feeling. In those moments of not having the words, I start to feel what is ‘there.’ It has been such a blessing to feel the feelings become still and then clear and be gone.
For you, there may be times where you don’t get any words, only sensations in your body. That is a perfect opportunity to just feel what is there and healing takes place…with very little effort.
As the globe is awakening, the energy around us now supports everyone moving through their charges very quickly. We are being called to work in the now.
You don’t have to believe me. Play with the concept of working from the moment of the reaction, feel the bother without knowing what ‘it’ is and be still in the clearing. Blessings to you always.
