If you’re on a spiritual path and doing inner work, you’ve
probably wanted to give up at some point. Feeling those emotions that we’ve
avoided feeling for so long is challenging. Experiencing them again is
sometimes excruciating. It is also what frees us, so we do the work.
Once expressed, felt, and processed, the old emotional
energies are released from the body. In that process we find our freedom from
them. Our bodies heal and we find that we are able to react differently to the
situations that were tainted by the old energies. It is the process of healing.
It is a process. So, let’s think about that process and ways
to be intentional about moving through that process with more ease, grace, and
efficiency. The point of doing the inner work is to move through the energies,
the emotions. The better we move through them the more likely we’ll be able to
heal from our shadow aspects. The more we heal, the more inner peace we get to
experience in our lives.
We know we need to feel them to heal them, then move through
the energies and release them. In that release we remove them from our body,
mind, heart, and soul. We can then heal and bring forward better energy into
our lives. Our hearts become lighter, and our souls begin to sing.
Our daily life, and our healing process, benefit from
awareness and intention. Once we have the awareness that there are emotions
coming up for us, we can set the intention to experience, express, and release
the emotions. Be intentional about the process. Be intentional about moving
through the process with ease and grace. Be intentional about releasing the
emotions. Be intentional about bringing forth energies that are aligned with
the more healed version of us now.
You probably know all of this already. I’ve probably written
about it before, but it is worthy of repetition. And maybe I need a reminder
for myself, to be aware and intentional about my healing. Maybe sometimes we all
need a reminder to be aware of what is coming up for us, and to see it all as
an opportunity to heal. And maybe sometimes we need to acknowledge what we’ve
May you heal well. May we all heal well. May our world heal
Fun fact: As I was writing this, I kept hearing the title
“Intentional Healing”, as Marvin Gaye’s song “Sexual Healing”.
Today’s image is mine. This park, Washington Park, is one of
the places where I go to heal in nature.
While in the shower this morning, I received a burst of inspiration. Stay tuned to this space for an upcoming announcement.
I’m grateful you’re here. I love you.
