We have access to an unlimited source of power and potential. We entered this world as pure love…pure potential. Along the way in our journey, we are exposed to people, events and circumstances to help us grow and gain in our understanding. But if we haven’t been taught to see the gift in every situation, to learn the lesson and allow any emotions the ego-mind associates with that experience to move through us, that energy can get stuck.
That stuck energy blocks our channel, making it harder for us to see, hear and receive inner guidance. We start to believe we are alone in this world, unsupported, needing to defend against forces out there.
We forget what we once knew, that we are connected to everything, and everyone. We start to look at the world through eyes of separation. It’s us versus them, or at least us and them. We forget that we are all one and the same.
Getting stuck in the story-line of what happened, projecting that same story, or a similar version onto the future, ensures that we will experience more of the same. The only way to break free is to allow that which is unprocessed or unhealed to be acknowledged and released. We can choose to look for the gift in everything that has ever happened to us, forgiving ourselves and others for all of our perceived mistakes, and theirs, and then LET IT GO.
Guilt and shame, anger and blame do not serve us, and only keep us spinning our wheels in the mud. Forgiving ourselves and others, and letting go of the story, frees us to return to the natural innocence and openness we once knew.
Realize I am not saying we should never feel anger or sadness or grief, only that we should not hold onto those feelings, thereby storing the energy in our bodies and blocking us from our ability to receive divine inspiration. Letting go and opening up our channels allows us to experience our connection to life, and to spirit. Each moment is fresh and new, no longer written over by the past. New possibilities find us and may be born through us.
Yoga, meditation, Qi gong – there are many ways to help free us from stagnant, stuck energy. Find your way onto your path, and enjoy every step of the journey.
