To the Other Side and Back… The Miracle of Wading into Uncharted Waters.!
Updated: July 4, 2016
“I’m sorry I abandoned you”
“ Stop the feuding your life will have been wasted”
“ We are so proud of who you have become”
“ Write that book to set the record straight.”
“ Set yourself free.”
“ We are all so sorry you were affected by this legacy”
“This is why this has happened.”
“I waited all my life to hear that apology.”
“ I did feel like an orphan- they gave me away when I was 10”
“I know he loved me.”
“ I understand now.”
“ I am in shock but maybe now I can forgive.”
“ You can change this.”
These are some of the many comments from different people- living and crossed over during the two Messages from Spirit events I had the privilege of presenting in Halifax and St John’s Newfoundland. Besides the fact I now have a special love for both places- I felt such an instant kinship to the attendees- the “tell it like it is” enthusiasm of the people in Halifax and the quirky, salt of the earth “look you right in the eyes” uniquely mystical people of Newfoundland. I fell in love with these places and their inhabitants although I was there for such a short time.
I wish I could have wandered a bit by the sea. And I still want that fun family in St. John’s whose Dad and husband came through with his fun sense of humor to adopt me (you know who you are! lolol)
There tends to be a common theme when I do events like these and what I tapped into was how those who had crossed over were pressing me to remind their loved ones that they are still connected, still present to them, and all of them regardless of whether they were asking for forgiveness, or owning their mistakes, or cracking jokes were delivering messages of love, hope, support and relief.
So what happens when the past is acknowledged and you get the apology you always wanted, or the old wound reopened in front of others to be witnessed with the intention of setting you free? What happens when you spend your whole life building walls on the foundation of the pain of abandonment and suffering yet find out that is no longer true?
I know it’s life changing when this happens at an event. But let’s talk about this without an event in common.
Let’s just talk about how these stories that we define ourselves by are created.
In the womb as our soul integrates with the physical density that eventually forms our bodies every one of us tunes into the ancestral lineage of the ones that brought us into this world. Sure, not all of us will have access to these stories and experiences, we’d likely go nuts, and if we did remember everything our minds might explode! But, in truth we are not isolated in our story-making and are influenced well beyond our fathers and mothers great or poor parenting styles.
The subconscious stores all the pertinent memories and highlight the ones that were accompanied by strong emotions especially those of fear. Those strong experiences become the baseline markers and triggers that set up a chain reaction of protection no matter whether the manner in which we protect ourselves is healthy or not.
We don’t even know it’s happening and many people never care to investigate their cause, although if you’re reading this you’ve already done some work in this area to set yourself free from the illusion of being a victim.
What I think is really important to note that at this time in history as we’ve become conscious of being global citizens we are painfully aware that there is so much conflict, hate and confusion and the bulk of information we are privy to is dangerously laced with fear.
I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist but I have to say I do wonder why we are barraged with so much terror and fear by the media and we have to really look for the amazing news of exciting new inventions, cures, and opportunities for powerful social change and prosperity that exist in abundance.
This is in NO way minimizing the tragedies of late, but life is filled with these and always there will be tears and suffering and also amazing triumphs in life. It’s how we respond to them and how much compassion we can muster that will define our contribution. (Marianne Williamson’s latest book From Tears to Triumph is a must read).
The issue at hand is to catch yourself, before you start your meltdown and begin to cry BUILD A WALL. If you keep reinforcing the fear and stories of being a global victim you will begin to tell a destructive story that will inform the universe that frequency is what you’re tuned into, and so you’ll begin to unconsciously seek reinforcement and repetition to play out in your personal virtual reality you call your world.
I sometimes think the universe is like a giant Netflix that plays movies based on your energetic preferences. Every once in a while your guardian angel gets tired of playing endless angel Canasta waiting for you to wake up to healing and throws you a curve ball. Right! Tired of seeing all those abandonment and abuse movies how about a Love story that shouldn’t have happened? Want more of those? Like the feeling? What? No way! You prefer the other ones because you are familiar with them?
Ok fine.. back to the game.
Or you accept the gift like some of the people in my audiences who are in awe that they have real love in their lives considering they came from such darkness. Is it perfect? No but it’s a beginning that is possible when you begin to believe you are worthy of better, refuse to see yourself as a victim, and say yes to the angel or if you’re still a skeptic nod to the “coincidence” that delivered you out of your old belief system by offering you an alternative.
The alternatives will always lead us into uncharted waters. Healing takes you forward not backward to the way you were, but to whom you’re becoming. You and I have not yet experienced the new. But if we want something different we need to jump into the unknown!
Right now, you and I can make the change by choosing something other than fear. It’s that simple. Breathe in the Light. Allow the dark to exist without resistance. Everything gets to exist in this universe but it’s our choice which to focus on. Show compassion to yourself and others.
Step back. Choose.
So .. my question for you this week is: What do you do to help reduce fear? This week I am giving you a gift of a meditation to help you get out of yourself.
What helps you choose the Light? What works?
One thing I know- we are all in this together. No matter what has happened to us as the result of the darkness and wounds of others, together we can hold hands and choose the Light and trust that Spirit has a plan and we can either be active victors or passive victims within it. Both roles will teach others how reality is co-created. Every life story weaves into the greater Story in the tapestry of life. How do you want yours to appear in it?
Love you always!
