Do you need to go through in order to rise above?

When we feel that we are stuck, sometimes we must heal within in order to move forward. 
What do you need to heal from?

We always have a choice.

From the ground up, we choose how we want something to effect us. We choose if we want to be better and grow or if we want to be bitter and stagnate and possibly die as a result of our uncontrolled emotions and thoughts. We choose to live or slowly cause or own destruction. We choose to live and experience happiness or hold on to anger, frustration, guilt, sadness, or worry which can lead to overwhelming stress and possibly cause a heart attack, stroke, or a “rare” health condition. Your mind reacts and so does your body.

Is anyone or anything worth that pain and worth your life and right to live?

Lesson 3: Be grateful for what you have, and you will be blessed with more.

Taking care of what you have been given (life, a house/ apartment, food, clothing, shoes, etc) is an expression of gratitude.

1. You are guided to eating healthier foods, eating meals 4-6 hours apart or frequent small meals, and maintaining a reasonable weight for your body.

2. You are guided to increase physical activity.

3. You are guided to cooking or buying what you know you will eat.

4. You are guided to pick your clothes off the floor / or not put them on the floor at all and properly care for your clothes.

5. You are guided to spend more time enjoying life and appreciating your miraculous body and how it obeys your thoughts and feelings.

Things are no longer things and are a reflection of you and your state of being.

Too many times the outward approval of others becomes the goal of our actions instead of being true to ourselves. When we seek the approval of others, we are saying that we are not good enough, and that we need others to validate our worth. My mother would remind us that when you do something for another person, do not stay stuck there waiting on applauses, awards, or anything else. Do it and keep moving.

When we do things from the heart, we are not concerned about another’s reaction, even so much as a “thank you”. Our intentions are in alignment with a higher power and not for show or approval. Our satisfaction comes from the ability to give instead of receiving.

Thank you Mom!

Heal within

Folly: let go of the pain, there is very little to gain.

Folly

“Forget what hurt you in the past, but never forget what it taught you. However, if it taught you to hold onto grudges, seek revenge, not forgive or show compassion, to categorize people as good or bad, to distrust and be guarded with your feelings then you didn’t learn a thing. God doesn’t bring you lessons to close your heart. He brings you lessons to open it, by developing compassion, learning to listen, seeking to understand instead of speculating, practicing empathy and developing conflict resolution through communication. If he brought you perfect people, how would you ever learn to spiritually evolve?”
― Shannon L. Alder

I believe the above quote says it all. Change your perspective about your journey, and you change your thoughts and your actions. For example, Brian Tracy, a motivational speaker and self-development author, encourages individuals to believe that the universe conspires to help us instead of hurting us. We choose our thoughts; we choose our behaviors.

Heal within,
