This will be a 2 part series post. Another will follow with my own story of diving into healing, triggers, feeling things and crying from a place of Love.
Churches and religion have put so much power in the devil.
Face things. Feel things. Take responsibility.
Take action to heal and release, to acknowledge triggers, both positive and negative and self evaluate.
Thoughts are real things.
We are designed to be intentional. When we are, we change the structure of our brain.
How am I triggered, responding to my mate, kids, friends etc?
We are responsible for our behavior, rather than placing it on the devil.
We must take responsibility to heal.
If you think about Jesus, about Love, He modeled how to self regulate in Love.
Think on these things....is said so often, BUT the process is skipped.
Get to the traumas, some may have been raped, abused, stolen from, abandoned and more, but get to them.
Deal with it.
It is in your brain, with physical and spiritual elements to it.
Don’t use scripture to suppress...or technology, substances, whatever it may be.
What chooses life? What brings these thoughts into captivity so that we can think on heavenly loving things?
Scream. Shout. Feel it. Process it. Acknowledge it.
Meditation helps some.
Koren Specific Technique has been an extremely affective tool in my healing journey, and much more prompt, but also working in layers.
We all have a story.
We have to decide to deal with all the stuff.
Release it. Heal from it.
Be in the Love zone, rather than the fear zone.
God is in everything.
We benefit from dealing with things.
When you are aware of something, it is changeable; it weakens.
Physically the structure changes; the energy changes; the whole electrical chemical quantum balance starts changing.
It’s a celebration to have triggers, traumas, feelings from the Love zone, from being aligned in Love, because when I acknowledge what it is I am feeling, have done, have had done, or when parents can apologize for things to their children and hear the possible pain they may have caused them, they don’t have to feel guilt or shame. ✨🙏continued in comments🙏✨
I prefer to do all of my growing in a corner alone where no one can see if I make a mistake.
I don’t like to share any part of myself unless it is perfected and checked and checked again, and though much of my fight against OCD has turned around those bad habits, the echos of my compulsions, the patterns and the comfort of my obsessions still live in my mind.
The fear never quite goes away.
Though my spirit is renewed, the path under my feet is well-worn.
So here I am, healed, ready, waiting
And yet in many ways still as lost as ever.
I see that reflected directly in my spiritual life.
So much of my heart has been closed off towards modern Christian culture. I often fear that so much of it is just inauthentic, almost forced. Repetitive. I have my legitimate criticisms of Christian culture, but I think one of my biggest issues is that I can’t engage either way. To a degree, yeah, a lot of Christian culture feels a little like bullshit. But on the other hand, I cannot even allow myself to discover the side of it that’s not, because I am just so completely afraid of that level of vulnerability. Instead of listening I write it off as mundane and uninteresting, inauthentic & unoriginal. It’s certainly easier than trying to let something in to actually affect me personally or spiritually.
Me & church are getting a better relationship, & my relationship with scripture is healing too (shout-out to @rachelheldevans new book, #inspired ). But so much of me continues to feel distant. And I am still unsure of where to go from here.
Still growing, still learning, still seeking a new path for my feet to walk on.
I’m sure I always will, but right now this burden feels especially heavy.
Couldn’t be more attending on how I was reunited with one of the fewest Tito’s I have. You were there everyday and I wouldn’t wanna have anyone else without mi abuelo y tios y tias ! #domoreofwhatmakesyouhappy#Glory#Blessed
