Healing in and of itself is not difficult. What makes it hard is our RESISTANCE to it that arises from our subconscious LIMITING BELIEFS. Imagine a space where there is a bright light, which by the way is who we are. And within that space are also dark caverns that are hidden and closed off by giant rocks. Even though the light is so bright that it can dispel all darkness, since there are giant rocks covering the openings to the dark caverns, the light cannot enter there.
The only way the light can enter to illuminate the darkness is if the RESISTANCE, AKA rocks are removed. Once the resistance is removed, the light is so bright, it reaches in and lights up the darkness. This is the process of HEALING, bringing our LIGHT into the DARK places of our lives.
Our healing work becomes seamless when we can identify our resistance, AKA subconscious limiting beliefs, that have been forming since we were small children. Here are some common limiting beliefs:
I’m not a good person, therefore I don’t deserve to be loved.
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do, so I must be stupid.
If I don’t do everything possible to please others, they won’t want me, and I will be alone.
Even though others seem to be enjoying their lives and living purposefully, it’s not really possible for me.
I have never had much, and anyways having stuff is not very spiritual, so it’s okay that I can barely even pay for rent and food.
I’m not a lovable person.
I have had this pain for 20 years, and I will suffer from it for the rest of my life.
I am not important to anyone.
Nobody really wants me.
Great news, people! You can remove the rocks from the dark caverns and HEAL YOURSELF! Yes, it’s a process, but it doesn’t have to be hard. We start right HERE NOW. And we keep showing up in this moment, tending to ourselves. And along the way, we keep showing up and identifying as pure LIGHT, healing ourselves.
It’s a matter of reframing how we choose to see ourselves, and instead of avoiding, fighting and distracting ourselves from the darkness, we allow our darkness to simply come into the light. This is when healing becomes effortless and graceful and our honor and privilege to share with others.
