Is Your Mind Healed Yet?
Is your mind healed yet? . . .
Or do you still feel the results of your formative years? The years where you were used and/or abused?
It’s difficult for some to realize that even though their experiences happened years ago, it is still with them.
Others say, “Why am I still feeling the repercussions? I’ve changed, but the same old things keep happening. The same fears, the same doubts I’ve had forever just keep coming up.”
I’m about ready to let you in on a little secret. It’s hard to heal when we are bound to the wounds of our past.
How do we know which wounds we are bound to?
Well, when you are introduced to someone, do you ‘drag’ up the past, thinking they need to know about your childhood, your work, or marriage history, in order to understand you?
Do you tell how your parents abused you? How you are out of a job — and you give the same old excuse as to why? How you can never find the right partner in life because… same ol’, same ol’?
If so, then those are probably the wounds of the past with which you have bonded.
How about when you see someone new, do you say to yourself “I’d like to get to know him or her, but I know they won’t like me because . . .” Well, whatever reason you give is what you are bound to.
We use these wounds to draw attention to ourselves, and this is the very process that keeps them with us and keeps us from healing.
But wouldn’t you like to heal? To feel whole?
We each have to do it ourselves, so here’s what YOU can do:
Every night before you go to sleep, think of your wounds — your excuses for your life the way it is — then say “I forgive myself and everyone concerned.” Then, think of the good things that are happening, or about to happen, in your life.
Every day when you think of your wounds, say “I forgive myself and everyone concerned.” Then, think of the good things that are happening, or about to happen, in your life.
Every time you feel hurt, think of that wound, then say “I forgive myself and everyone concerned.” Then, think of the good things that are happening, or about to happen, in your life.
You get the idea? You say it until it becomes your truth. You ‘used’ to think about your wounds and place the blame on someone else, but you don’t anymore. Now you think about your good points. The more you focus on your good points, the less you focus on old history — ‘old’ wounds.
If you don’t think about bad points all the time, pretty soon your mind won’t be going there.
Pretty soon your life will be full of good points, maybe some bad, too, but mostly good — and that’s the way you will act.
And isn’t that the way you want it?
