LIFE IS SHORT...FEEL TO HEAL...FORGIVE TO MOVE FORWARD
On average, every single day, 153,424 people from around the world pass over into spirit according to the World Health Organization.
Our true Spirit, which the Chinese call "Shen," is the spark of divinity that resides within the heart of every human being and manifests as love, kindness, compassion, generosity, giving, tolerance, forgiveness, mercy, tenderness and the appreciation of beauty. Time is short for all of us, and at the end of the day we are another day older, so take today and the present moment to wake up each day, kick ass, make a difference, give more, have patience, feel, heal, appreciate, and forgive so that you keep progressing forward on your personal, positive, and inspiring "Soul Adventure!"
One of the most famous quotes of every 12-Step program out there is, "You have to feel it to heal it." Many people and
cultures from around the world refuse to feel or even acknowledge the term of "feeling" as it can be perceived as a vulnerability or weakness, especially here in the United States. Feeling is actually one of great strength, growth, transformation, and healing! One thing all of us have in common is that we have all felt pain first hand, witnessed pain of another, and all have a story to tell of painful life situations. All of us share together in the "pain community" of what life can bring our way; no one is except from this community. Pain, sadness, grief, anger, not forgiving, and holding onto those feelings, that energy, or thoughts only stagnates, in-prisons, and limits our lives, when it can actually be a great catalyst for growth, transformation, knowledge, and even wisdom!
Every feeling and experience in life teaches us about ourselves
he world around us with the ability and opportunities to heal and connect on a much deeper level. By allowing yourself to feel everything either in the moment, or reflect after the moment has passed, whether it is a childhood memory, a personal traumatic event, the passing of a close friend or family member, or a toxic relationship allow your energy, heart, soul, and thoughts to explore this "spiritual paradigm" in greater detail. The human ego always kicks into high gear or "survival mode," or "protection" whispering to your energy, heart, soul, and thoughts that you must not face the real pain of the situation, stay busy, focus on your career, focus on others, pretend it didn't happen, and evade or escape from this pain, trauma, and grief that is right in front of you. The human ego will continue to do this until the day you are one of the 153,424 people who transfer back into spirit, energy, and love.
By ignoring the feelings, not embracing or accepting the emotions and letting them build or compound on each other over time has the
potential to build up and lead
to other problems from depression, poor health, broken relationships, loneliness, stress, disappointment, negative thinking, loss of faith, and even suicide. Most importantly, the "Shen" of your heart will begin to lose its spark and fade away.
Keeping that spark of divinity "alive" and "charged" in our heart is not always an easy accomplishment, and requires "awareness," and "discipline" on a daily basis, especially with all the changes life can throw our way. Working on your feelings and emotions through the physical body, the emotional body, the mental body, and the spiritual body as four different bodies is a way to gauge where you are at on your spiritual path on a daily basis.
Feel into what is in front of you, acknowledge, accept, let go, and set the intent to move forward with much gratitude so you can keep your "Shen" open and recharged on a daily basis, living presently and authentically to your life. A
s the old sayings go, "smooth seas never made a skilled sailor, and your beliefs don't make you a better person, your behavior does," so take the time in your busy day to practice and be aware of feeling and forgiveness with plenty of healing, love, patience, tolerance, and acceptance...because life will throw pain your way.
Don't judge it. Don't analyze it. Don't get negative with it. Don't' be scared of it. Feel into it, acknowledge and accept the feelings and emotions, and "let go" the pain you feel. The action and intent of acknowledgement, acceptance, and gratitude allows for the release and healing to take place, creating a new, healthy, loving space for your energy, heart, and soul to grow, transform, heal, and is leading you somewhere special! Once the heart is open, "Shen" manifests as light and energy always follows our intent and illuminates the path for all of us in the "Soul Adventures" of life and the journey forward, towards the spiritual goals of love, kindness, compassion, generosity, giving, tolerance, forgiveness, mercy, tenderness and the appreciation of beauty.
Life is short, feel to heal and forgive to move forward. There is much truth in "what we resist persists," and "the only way out is in," so listen to the whispers of your heart and allow the clarity, freedom, knowledge, and peace of what true healing can bring to the soul! The expansion, growth, and transformation to allow your journey to move forward while stepping into the authentic, loving, peaceful, and wise person you are! Hold on and get dragged or let go and be free, the choice is entirely up to you.
Every day is a brand new day...Let your
"Shen" shine brightly!
