Even More to Heal and Release
Recently, I have been feeling guided to once again get proactive about my personal healing. And it never fails to astound me that there is always more inner work that can be done - there is always more inner "stuff" to clear, and always more opportunity to transmute challenges into blessings.
As I look for the places where I still feel wounded, and the limiting beliefs or fears that I'm still carrying around surrounding the abuse, I am also continually astounded by how powerful the practices I've written about in The Good Energy Book and Magical Housekeeping really are for this kind of inner work. Clutter clearing on the physical plane helps clutter clearing on the spiritual/emotional plane feel like the most natural thing in the world. Consciously establishing a deep and abiding feeling of safety helps me bravely uncover and process my old hurts. Powerfully defining my own boundaries reminds me that I am the deciding factor in my life: that no one and no situation has power over me.
It might not always feel comfortable to look at the pain, but when I know that I am safe, I also know that the discomfort is truly a blessing in disguise: as I move through it, it becomes a portal to a more expansive level of freedom, and bliss.
