I've spoken before of how our physical body responds to our emotional luggage and how it manifests itself in the form or disease and/or pain but I'd like to stress that point again as our unresolved thoughts and emotions seriously do take its toll on us physically. Our body is always sending us messages and signals as to what it needs in order to function properly and excel in this world. When we ignore our signs it just continues to grow, and ultimately explode. Sometimes it is not a matter of dealing with what's simply in front of our faces though. Sometimes we need to go back in time and deal with the issues that we have tried to shove under the invisible rug.
I realize dealing with our past is easier said than done for some, but the pay off is well worth the experience. The only way to truly detox our mind and soul is to pay tribute to our experiences and give them room to take flight. We need to allow ourselves to feel the emotions our issues bring forth and be present in those moments. There is beauty in all we endure because there are lessons to be learned. And learning something new, especially when it is about ourselves, is always a beautiful thing. Allow yourself the opportunity to grow from the experiences you have encountered in life. You never have to go through anything alone either. Seek out a friend or professional counsel to take the journey along with you. Sometimes a fresh perspective on things can put an entirely new spin on it.
Be willing and open to heal... and to forgive. Remember, forgiveness is NOT about making someone else feel better. It does NOT mean you condone what someone, or yourself, has done. It does NOT mean you are inviting it to happen again or that you are willing to be a doormat. It means you are setting yourself free. You deserve to be free. You deserve to be healed. You deserve to be the best version of yourself, free from pain and anxiety and turmoil.
So, while it is, ofcourse, important and necessary to detox our body and remain healthy on that level, it is just as important, if not more so, to detox our soul. Being free from life's emotional baggage will also increase your energy level in ways you can not even imagine. Have faith that God never gives us anything we cannot endure. He is always there holding our hand, carrying us when we can not walk alone. Sometimes our experiences are necessary to become the people we are meant to become. They really do make us stronger... if we let it happen. Set the stage for healing to occur. Be present in your emotions. Allow them to take form so you can process it and put it in its proper place, instead of under the virtual rug. We don't need to exist in pain.
Listen to your inner guidance and feelings. Trust that they are your signs instructing you what to do next and telling you what needs to be healed. Trust that God is taking care of you and will not let you down. And trust that you are strong enough to endure and rise above each and every sour hand you have been dealt. You can not control what happens around you or the people that surround you, but you most CERTAINLY CAN control how you react and deal with them. You were born with free will. The choice to heal is always yours to make. No one can take that right away from you.
As always, good luck on your journey and you know where to find me if I can help in any way.
Blessings, love, light and healing to all of you...
