Freeing The Ghosts In Our Minds

”Do not waste one moment in regret, for to think feelingly of the mistakes of the past is to re-infect yourself.”

~~ Neville Goddard

Okay, I’m going to speak from personal experience here as it is all I can really share with 100% accuracy and knowledge. I live my life today in today. IF I were to choose to do anything else, it would be a nightmare to try to focus on everything that came before this very moment in time. I am extremely happy, peaceful and fulfilled in my life because I discovered this one important key over a decade ago. Prior to that, my past was constantly the focus of my waking thought and much of my unconscious thought. I was miserable. I was hurt and angry and sad and all of those low vibration feelings that happen when we constantly drag the events of our lives that are over and done into the present moment. In reality, there is no past. Let me explain that. All our experiences leading up to this moment happenED. When we are caught up in being the victim, we make all the feelings surrounding those experiences our present. In my case I constantly reminded myself of all the failures, all the shoulda’s and coulda’s, leaving no room for me to be anything else except that angry bitter person pointing fingers. What I really wanted more than anything else was to be free of those feelings yet in not understanding that I was sabotaging myself, I could only blame. One day the sadness and loneliness gave way to a more intense desire for freedom and happiness. I cannot say that it was one particular thing that switched the lightbulb on. I had been doing daily meditation and seeking answers from my angels and guides. I remember the moment in meditation where I was told by my guide, Joseph, to consciously say goodbye to those things from my past that I kept dragging into my every now moment. He encouraged me to say the words out loud “I release this with love” and then see the door closing on it. Some of it was easier to let go of than others. I had to get beyond the entitled feeling of the anger at how I had been wronged, starting at a very young age in life. I argued with my guides over this. I stomped my feet and threw a temper tantrum that any 2-year-old would be envious of. Joseph was patient and loving and kind. He wrapped virtual arms around me and let me cry until I felt the total release. We repeated the process every night, always with the same mantra of “I release this with love.” What I came to know after months of cleaning house is that we don’t have to bury the past; simply be willing to not have it be our present. The tighter we hold onto all that restrictive energy, the more we are unable to breathe and move in our now moment. Did the release have to happen in this painful cathartic way? For me the answer is yes. My stubborn self was not getting it any other way. Our release of the past is as individual as our fingerprints. This I know to be true, however: you will release the past by remaining true to your commitment of being free to live your present. Those memories of “past” events are only thoughts which are occurring right now in your present time. Those thoughts are what is keeping the hurt alive. You have the ability to choose to let it be released with love in order for you to live a full and happy life. If you truly want to heal from the past, pay attention to your now thoughts. This is the blueprint for healing. I did it and so can you.

Dear Angels, we cannot nor should we “forget” our past. There are so many hurting people in our world and much of it due to the fact that the past keeps being dragged into the present. We know that where our attention goes, our energy flows and that what we focus on expands. When it comes to dealing with the hurt from our past; however, we seem to have a more difficult time focusing on healing and we keep beating ourselves up which makes it harder to move forward. Any insight would be appreciated.

Dear Ones, we understand the struggle and it is very real indeed. Releasing the bond of the past is something that each of you must do for yourself as no one else can do that for you just as no one could be birthed or die for you. These experiences you are here to have are yours alone; therefore, the responsibility for your healing from those experiences lies with you. You and only you hold the key that unlocks your heart and allows the hurt to be set free. We can sit with you as can anyone you choose to have nearby for support, but you have to do the work. It would be much easier if we could just open you up and scrape out all the hurt. What we are offering you is similar to that process. You do not have to revisit the experiences. It is enough to make a commitment to let them go with love, which means there is no longer any resistance to the healing and no longer any need to hoard the emotions. It means that you are freeing yourself from telling your past stories as doing so brings them forward to continue being your present story. It is time for you to tell a new story; one of freedom, hope, and love.

Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.

Today, I promise to keep the door of my heart unlocked and not hoard any emotion that keeps me tethered to my past.
