Wow this was one of my Key lessons over the last 5 years. To appreciate the good bad and the sometimes ugly was the path required that enabled healing to occur. In being in the energy of appreciation especially when challenges showed; I could start to transform whatever was presenting itself to be cleared and in turn transform a section of my life.
The whole key to creating a life filled with joy and purpose starts by understanding you are the creator of you present reality. It requires no judgement because in truth there are no good and bad situations; we only perceive feelings that we have interpreted to BE good OR bad.
If we accepted that the so called BAD feeling bring with them a gift of healing and the GOOD feelings bring a gift of inspiration along with motivation. Would you pay more attention to your emotional signs?
As soon as I understood this reality I decided to really understand this life game from this view point. My commitment to understand how I had spent my life giving away my power became a passion. Remember when you ask for something you are going to receive it even when you have no idea how the insights and lessons will appear.
About 10 years ago I asked my mentor how I could understand emotions when I had shut them down for 40 years. She told me all I needed was to have the intent, little did I understand what that request would really mean for my life. I have experienced such a variety of emotions along with challenges that I could have never dreamed. In the end they lead me to heal my attachment to items and people.
“This last journey of surrendering my attachment to food as a way to socialise and reward myself has been interesting as I play the role of the observer.”
How does XYZ have me feel? Do I feel deprived? Do I accept this is just a choice leading to an outcome?
All good and provides me insight into the power of my mind to try to take back the driver seat of my life. I recognise the game and remind it I AM in the driver seat and that the mind has a support role.
This keeps me in the energy of APPRECIATION of how far I have come. As I have mentioned before our emotions hold an amazing gift http://jennyleather.com/life/day-28-power-of-emotions
Have a great Fathers Day!
