Learning to heal 

We must look at ourselves over and over again in order to learn how to love, to discover what has kept our hearts closed, and what it means to allow our hearts to open.  Jack Kornfield

From a young age we have been taught to believe in love, happy endings and fairytale hopes. 

But where along the way were we taught how to face sickness, death, grief, anxiety, and loss?

Because of this, society is overwhelmed as we struggle to understand how to face these difficult challenges and our inability to trust and know deeply, that if our hearts break open, we will survive. 

Often it’s not until we are drowning in our pain, that we realise we know nothing about this path. Worse still, as we search for answers and support to work through this difficult time, we discover no one else does either! 

Society has trained us to believe that if we unravel or fall apart through these difficult challenges, then at some point we need to tidy it up, push it down or better still, lock it away, as it may make others feel uncomfortable. Besides, how long does it take to get over anyway? 

The answer is there is no timeframe. Each of us has a unique rhythm and timing of suffering and healing.

 Allow space for this pain to arise in you and others. Learn to see what this pain reveals in you, and how it can change your path and create new beginnings. 

Take time to nurture, heal and accept these wounds as part of our journey.

Removing the Barriers

You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?”
― Rumi   The Essential Rumi, New Expanded Edition

Alberto Villodo is an amazing author that has taught me so much about understanding who I am and where I am going in life.

The Four Insights: Wisdom, Power, and Grace of the Earthkeepers [Paperback]

The universe always mirrors back to us the conditions of our love and our intent. If we’re fearful that money won’t come to us, it won’t. If we experience abundance by imagining ourselves with plenty, even if we have no money right now, we will have abundance, and we can be sure that the money is on its way to us. This happens because we’re in balance.

So when our life isn’t working for us, the most effective solution isn’t to change our career, spouse, exercise routine, or community, but to work on what we have already. We rid ourselves of the unproductive stories and envision the experiences we’d like to have.

Start to question your inner belief’s about money.  Did you grow up in an environment that made you believe you never had enough?  Did you grow up in an environment where you never worried about money or abundance?  This will clearly define who you are now and why you believe if you are abundant or not.

The shift from poverty into abundance is and always will be, based on your unconscious belief system.  Once you understand that, you need to shift the old belief within you and in doing so, you will allow abundance in.  It’s not just a matter of saying “I want to be rich, bring it on!”.  If you don’t believe that unconsciously, you will not receive it.

Why do you stay in prison, When the door is so wide open?”
― Rumi The Essential Rumi, New Expanded Edition

So become conscious of how you see money.  Am I generous and detached from money?  or Do I hang onto each dollar, wondering where the next will come from?  When you can freely give, even if you are poor, you will freely receive.

I have always found this to be true.  When I let go of my fear of receiving, when I truly trust in an abundant life that I know I deserve, it will come.  Work out where your fears are, if you are not receiving, you are holding a fear, blocking the source of abundance.

When you can see where your fear is, face it.  See the illusion that fear is and let it go.  See how fear controls you, yet it has no truth.  When you find your truth and realise you deserve so much more than you believe, you will become open to receiving the life you wish for.

Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it.
