Life is an ebb and flow of change and growth. We can choose what we want to take from each experience and what we want to leave behind. While this is not easy to do, we can do it in small increments, letting go of those things that no longer serve us.
Certain situations, some recent, and some from years ago when we were children, left an indelible imprint on us. These experiences become the basis for our reactions and beliefs. These beliefs may not always be healthy or supportive in our healing. Do you have beliefs that have become steel walls that limit you? If so, you can change them, a step at a time, a day at a time.
You cannot change a belief instantly if you have lived according to that belief for a long time. What you can do, is take small incremental shifts towards a better version of the belief. As you take each small step, you will experience a shift within you. This will create a shift in your life.
Healing is about taking one step at time and continuously moving forward. It is not how big the step is, or if it is appropriate, or whether it fits the conventional methods of healing. It is about getting up each day and taking one step forward in a way that is right for you. It can be giving yourself five minutes of sitting quietly and breathing. Perhaps your form of daily healing is journaling, exercise or releasing emotions in any way. Whatever practice or methodology allows you to feel better than before you started it, is a healthy practice to add to your day.
No matter what you have been through, or who you were before your experience, allow yourself the space and time to heal. Forgive yourself for what you think you have or have not done that you feel led to where you are now. Release judgement of yourself.
No matter what your past is, you are worthy. Happiness is your birthright. Healing is your purpose. You are loved. Your voice and wisdom gained through your experiences are a gift to the world.
Set yourself free from the expectations of others and give yourself, the most important person in your life, the gift of unconditional healing.
