Each moment offers a unique opportunity

 

When presented with a situation that brings about unwanted emotions, we can choose to deny what we’re feeling. We can also choose to dive headlong into the emotions. If we are fully present during the dive and we allow the emotions to lead the way, we can heal the current suffering as well as the suffering that has remained unhealed from our pasts.

For instance, in being present today with the feeling of rejection, I first experienced the events of the day and the past week. In staying with and breathing through the feeling of rejection, I quickly began to experience and see situations in years past where I felt rejected.

On the outset of this journey, I believed all of the rejection feelings were from the past week. It did not occur to me until I rode the wave to the shore that the vast majority of what I was experiencing was actually from my past. Had I stopped riding the wave too soon, I would have missed healing the core, the source of my misgivings.

By being willing to sit, be present and breathe through the rise, peak and fall of your emotions, you can heal both your present and your past. The more you heal now, the less you carry forward into your future.

Releasing the burdens that weigh you down frees you and others in your life from suffering. Hurt people hurt people. So let’s each do our part to start anew!

Namaste.
