This week I have learned more about myself than I could ever imagine. Healing is a long, but rewarding journey. I am learning to live life with more awareness and acceptance. It’s a fine balance living life with love and grace. It is there you will find your peace.
I am learning I must fully learn to love myself in every type of situation that presents itself, the good, the bad and the ugly. We must allow ourself to feel rather than react. We must learn to be our own peaceful warrior. We must learn to be our own healer. Our own light. For when we find ourself even during our darkest times we light a path for others with our unique and authentic energy.
This last week has been a test for me. How strong am I, not just physically, but mentally and emotionally? I have been feeling everything come up to the surface and for the first time I realized I don’t have to go through it alone.
Yoga creates a sacred space for me to release my pain and suffering transforming it into something that is filled with grace and wisdom. Find your own sacred space. Create time to explore what is inside of you, because it’s powerful beyond belief and it will guide you to your own unique truth.
Sometimes we give more attention to the bad, even if we know deep down in our hearts there is more good. We get to choose. We can’t choose what happens to us, but can choose what lens we look through. It doesn’t mean what did happen to you should of happened to you. Rather you are choosing to give yourself the gift of freedom to let go of what does not serve you get to choose what happens next simply by changing your thoughts about the experience.
Should we be seeking justice or peace? Is peace a form of justice? These are questions I still continue to ponder. It keeps me curious, but also allows room to release what is not good for me. We need to go through the emotions of anger and sadness to reach joy and contentment. We must be patient with ourselves and give ourselves the gift of time.
You are a powerful human being. You can use that for good or you can use that for bad. You can’t always choose the experience that comes into your life, but you can choose how to perceive the event in your life. Let it guide you to become a better, stronger, wiser, more beautiful person.
Forgive yourself. Release the fears of your past and find time to live in the present. It is there you will find all the answers.
More than ever I believe our trauma can help guide us to who we really are. Once you find who you really are you’ll never forget that person. You have found home.
