No feeling or emotion happens by accident. In fact, if we have been witness to a certain emotion arising in our body it is the clear signal that said emotion is only arising in order to be healed by us. All emotions are healed by the actual feeling of them. The only way “out” is “through.” When we think of things in these terms, it becomes clear why we manifest situations time and again that act as the catalysts that prompt our hearts to feel certain ways. For example, if there is repressed anger in our emotional body we will find that we manifest situations in our outer reality that make us angry, over and over again until this emotion has been observed, felt and unconditionally loved by us. On one level of understanding it may seem as though we are attracting to us “negative” circumstances because we have done something wrong or we have some sort of subconscious belief that is out of alignment with what we truly want and for that reason we continue to attract to us circumstances that make us angry. When we see things from this perspective it is no wonder why so many of us are still blaming ourselves for our lives and how things appear in our outer reality and why certain emotions seem as though they pop up over and over again without ever being healed. However, true healing and transformation can only occur when we do the one thing that may seem the most scary or painful even…welcome all emotions in, no matter how they feel. By seeing ourselves as the light of awareness that actually has the power to energetically transcend all perceived “painful” emotions by simply letting them be exactly as they are and sending love to them with our intention and breath, we actually become the savior we have been waiting for. The divine within all of us is waking up. Gone are the days when we needed a third party healer or shaman in order to heal things for us, or to remove blockages on our behalf. We are the light of the divine that our hearts are pleading and praying for in order to be liberated from its pain. See each emotion as another aspect of your inner child that is desperately wanting not only your attention but your love. When unhealed emotions that were used to being shunned and judged as “bad” are shown unconditional acceptance and love it will be amazing how quickly we begin to heal our hearts and move through painful feelings. The next time a situation happens that prompts your heart to feel sad, angry, frustrated, disappointed or any other emotion that has previously been judged by you as “not acceptable,” look at this situation as an opportunity for healing and to give your inner child some desperately needed love and affection. The more we blame ourselves for our life’s circumstances, the more our inner child feels not only criticized but also abandoned when it needs love the most. True freedom from all emotions lies in the willingness to surrender to that emotion. Surrender is the natural precursor for the light of our being (our divine nature which is pure love) to flood in and wrap this emotion in the warmth of its unconditional love.
