What wounds are you still nursing? Are you willing to let them heal? Can you view them as opportunities of growth, transforming and fire starters for your own evolution? Our souls want to be full, healed, and able to expand in greatness and possibilities. We need to find ways to support this healing. “We are not meant to stay wounded. We are supposed to move through our tragedies and challenges and to help each other move through the many painful episodes of our lives. By remaining stuck in the power of our wounds, we block our own transformation. We overlook the greater gifts inherent in our wounds — the strength to overcome them and the lessons that we are meant to receive through them. Wounds are the means through which we enter the hearts of other people. They are meant to teach us to become compassionate and wise.” ~ Caroline Myss
It is in the process of our healing that we learn compassion of self and of others. We learn just how strong we truly are. We often think we cannot handle certain pain or situations, but we do. We heal from the wound, the loss, the trauma and we rise above. Unless we keep ourselves stuck in the story surrounding the wound. When this happens, we keep our attention and our energies directed around the hows and the whys of our pain and suffering. We concentrate our energies on keeping the story alive. This keeps us from moving forward. It prevents us from receiving the greater gifts. It keeps us week, small and fragile.
The shaman can help move the story on or to change it. The shaman is able to discover what is needed for the soul to heal. It is in this process that the heart feels witnessed, the wound is tended to and the soul is able to grasp the positive energies created around this healing and shine brightly with the wisdom and gifts that are received. Once this occurs, imagine the possibilities of your experience! You now have new tools to bring to your day, as you have learned and witnessed how to rise above from a dark spot in life. We have experienced the ultimate form of love, self-love, and now we can share that energy with those around us.
Some people get trapped in woundology. Some don’t know that they have choices. Some want to remain there because the story somehow serves them, and they are challenged to see that there could be freedom and beauty in the place of letting the story go. How do you view your healing of your wounds?
