"When darkness comes and pain is all around" -- probably everybody has heard this line from the popular song by Simon and Garfunkel. There is so much darkness and pain in our world. If we choose to dwell on the darkness, it can be quite overwhelming, especially if you are an empath like myself. The darkness seems to suck us in. If you have ever fainted, you know the sensation of everything fading out until there is nothing left of the light. That is how it is when you get sucked into the vortex of darkness. There is a helplessness and a hopelessness there. I have been at that very place many times during this lifetime. That is why I can relate to the lyrics of songs such as "Hello darkness my old friend, I've come to talk with you again." I understand the feeling. I know what it feels like to be depressed. I have had to spend many, many hours and shed a million tears to purge and cut cords that were tying me to those feelings. I chose to do this. It was an intention to rid myself of all negativity so that my soul may be happy and joyful and free. It doesn't just happen. No matter how much time you put between now and the event, the feelings do not just go away and you can be transported back there and feel them just as raw as when they happened with just a thought.
How then, you may ask, do we do this purging? It is a conscious intention. For me, I asked for help from my spirit guides. I wanted those emotions to stop paralyzing me when for some reason the thought of what had happened crept into my mind. I asked how to do this and I got answers. It may not be the same for you as it was for me but my spirit guides knew I could handle it, even though I was sure I was going to have a nervous breakdown before it was all over!
Is this something you can do on your own? Of course it is! You can ask for guidance from your spirit guides who will be very willing to help you. It does require a commitment on your part to accept the help and do the hard work of digging in to some very painful areas. However, because it is so intense, you may want the help of someone who can hold you up and support you through the process. My guides have shown me how to help others with this and I would love to be there for you. If you're ready to get real and feel you need help with the process, then I encourage you to check out my Spiritual Coaching sessions on the website. Hugz~Love
