In my personal life the last few months I have witnessed many people be confronted with their current and past pains. Loved ones, friends, and friends of friends around me are all struggling and having to face old issues from their childhood or even residual soul baggage that just keeps dragging behind them. They are being forced to look into those dark parts of their history and the manifestations from that history. Any attempts at trying to ignore the fact that life seems to be falling apart and that you just can’t handle the stress as you had been, are no longer working.
It takes a strong soul to admit, face, and process personality issues whether inherited or taught. It takes a strong soul to confront a reality of being a victim, process it, be able to let go and move forward. We all have something that challenges us and to have the strength to be vulnerable, accept help, and have the desire to move forward positively is a major step in a lifetime.
I am relieved to hear so many of these people are taking on the challenge to face these problems and hopefully release themselves of the pain, anger, resentment, lies, misrepresentation, and false egos. An even better sign is that most are taking a holistic approach in dealing with the issues.
We are moving into a time where the heavy pharmaceuticals are not being relied upon as much. We are more aware of the adverse effects and think twice before taking something to mask the pain. These brave souls are trying new methods like seeing therapists to work through problems and understand a different point of view, hoping to see the lessons they need to learn. Some are meditating and just finding nature.
Today there are so many different ways to heal from the pain. We all must do what feels right to us. The coping options today range from the old go-to of diving into a religious book looking for answers to talking to a therapist to medication, if needed; to releasing the bad/old energy via eastern medicine (massage, acupuncture, reiki, meditation, and spiritual communications).
Holistic doctors are becoming more mainstream and if you have done all you can through your primary doctor, but know in your gut you need to try something else, trying a Certified Holistic Doctor is another option.
In the past, I have taken this alternate route after my primary medical doctor had run all her tests, and could not figure out what was causing my physical issue. The final straw was when she looked at me and said jokingly/yet seriously, “I just don’t know what to do with you”. So I got a second opinion through a certified holistic doctor and found my way to healing of a very common issue called Adrenal Fatigue, which is not recognized by the standard medical community.
We are in a time where trying new ways to heal is looked upon as smart and preferred. We are trying new things to help break cycles of codependency, drug dependency, and old behaviors/thought patterns. To be able to talk with a therapist to help you deal with issues is good. We are learning to not keep it all bottled up. Friends are great for helping you work through problems too. If there are friends in your life that are there for you during the tough time, then you likely have a soul contract to help each other through this period, but knowing the boundaries of a friendship and seeking professional help is smart and wise also.
Being open to eliminating stimulants such as caffeine, nicotine, sugar, processed foods, and high dosage medications (when directed) and opting for a lower dose medication or herbal pill can help you get yourself back in working order as you process the turmoil of emotions and feelings you are being faced with. Exercise and fresh air are such simple, free ways to help keep you going in the right direction also.
Getting back to reading the inspirational books, self help books, and religious texts, are all good reminders to help bring you back to center and help you find answers in other people’s stories. I guarantee! In the 7 billion people on this planet, someone has gone through exactly what you have and being able to see how they have gotten through it, will be a comfort to you and even guide you to keep going.
A natural point of view is your mind over matter. If you believe that you can heal yourself and get through a stressful time, you can. Millions of people believe everyday in religious practices, people, non physical energies, books of inspiration, talismans like crystals and rocks, natural scents from flowers, essential oils, and even a simple refreshment and calming effects of running water. Being open to new ideas and trusting what our bodies/gut are telling you, is a brave step.
Along with traditional doctor’s prescriptions, western doctors also recognize that we are in a more stressful world and will often mention you need to be “taking care of yourself by resting more, eliminating stresses and stimulants, and exercising”. Having regular maintenance like taking a vacation (putting electronics away, or better yet, go where there is no cell or internet service-just disconnect) are suggested.
If you can’t get away, then try a holistic natural approach to help your body release the toxins it has held onto for so long. The same toxins that are now manifesting into the aches and pains and are adding to the mental stress you may feel. Holistic options:
A spa day
A salt bath
Sitting in a sauna
Reiki (energy healing)
Getting fresh air outside
Talking with someone to get a new point of view
Releasing fear and anger over things you cannot control
Mentally releasing any soul connections to feelings and people that you feel have a hold on your life
You are an amazing, bright, powerfully huge soul energy and have chosen to squish and squeeze into the tight shell called a body. It is a stressful task, but with maintenance it can be harmonious.
Accepting help and pushing the ego to the side will open your spirit up with new solutions to help balance this world of strong negative energy. Your body was made to be tough and withstand this planet. Your soul is even tougher, but yet a balance of gentle.
The challenges you are facing right now are to be embraced and faced. Every person on earth is being pushed to get rid of the old patterns, old feelings, old ways of coping, and no longer look back. You are not alone in your desire to seek help to heal. Don’t be afraid to speak, share, and let it be known you are a brave soul that can’t do it alone. You are not meant to. Let one person know your struggles and you will find God will show you your soul companion that agreed to help you through this challenge.
Know this time will pass, but you must learn and grow through it. Embrace a positive, happy, joyful future and that is what you will receive. Focus on bringing that light at the end of the tunnel- to you.
Much Love and Healing.
