This week’s blog is about the releasing the past …
Why is it that we have the same issues from the past come up again and again?
About your mum
About your dad
About your partner
About your siblings
Insert eye roll …
Usually it’s because we’ve not quite finished healing them.
There might still be a tiny bit of dirt to clean under your finger nails or at the bottom of the pan.
That’s not to say you haven’t come a LONG way since the original incident.
In fact, if you only have a tiny bit of dirt left … congratulations!!
No really …
You are moving in the right direction.
Be proud of yourself.
This week I’ve had some deep conversations with my family about some past stuff.
In some cases it was emotional and in others calm and considered.
What was most interesting to me was that we all came to an agreement that we do want to have healthy communication and being authentic. However, some people think authentic is one thing and some think it’s another.
Makes sense we are different human beings.
Even if we grew up in the same household, we have different views on how things happened.
Now I believe our focus needs to be on three things …
1. Self compassion
Self compassion – being kind to ourselves about anything we perceive we did ‘wrong’ or ‘bad’. Practice being kind to yourself. I did the best that I could under the circumstances, with the tools I had. Now I have a lot more tools than 10 years ago. Don’t you?
Forgiveness – this is not about letting people get away with being unkind or disrespectful (or worse). It’s about letting go of the toxic feelings and being at peace. Remind yourself daily that you are a perfect soul … and so are your family members. We all just get caught up in our ego personalities sometimes.
Grace – when I hear this word I think it is about being open-hearted, present and loving. Think about it … when you are gracious … or graceful … it comes from a heart space. Breathe and be as present as you can, no matter what chaos is going on around you.
Moving forward with my family I am intending to do it with grace.
That’s how I will be fully authentic.
If you’d like to do some gentle releasing of the past … and add some tools to your self-healing kit.
