It’s not about years. It’s not about age. It’s not about youth. It’s about decline. And decline is about alignment, or not. Decline is about, in this moment, which way am I forking? In this moment, which way am I forking? In this moment, which way am I forking? That’s all it’s about.
What I know is that we think upwards of 40,000 thoughts per day. In a single day, we can interact with 100’s and sometimes thousands of people. Bruising, brutal thoughts of injury overtake my senses as my thoughts run rampant. What could I have done differently? I can feel my heart beat under my shallow breath. . . I feel the tension in my energy field. The forking begins!
“Go general.” Must . . . get … out of my thoughts! Go general, says Abraham.
The only way to shift my feelings is to feed myself general thoughts of relief. What is good about the situation or person? From my higher self and bigger, broader perspective, how is this situation helping me? What am I learning? Oh, and don’t go to blame here! Instead I go to the pain as a great teacher and healer, meeting it head on, finding the gifts therein, learning, and most of all forgiving myself.
But say you’re like my gentleman friend. I handed him the book, The Journey by Brandon Bays. He read it first before deciding that he needed to get to the bottom of his emotional wounding that was now a full blown physical manifestation in the form of throat cancer. Not enough to say that he needed medical help, but to ask his throat what was there. I moved him into the emotion. Deeply embedded sorrow, grief, then a situation came up around his now deceased son. Having said what needed to be said during this process work, we re-anchored some new insights and a new expanded feeling of love through forgiveness. I can only say that we must move beyond the wounding. Meet it face on, take out the emotional charge to change the situation within us. And then and only then can we unhook ourselves from the pain.
Emotions are gifts. Forking or stopping for a moment to change old belief systems that are already there. Do the work. It’s worth it! In love, Dianne Carol
