I’m an open person to almost everything in life. But, I’ve found my openness poses a problem when it comes to my ability to use discernment with those I let into my energy field. Let me start off by saying both to myself and the universe: I am perfect where I am in my soul’s growth, RIGHT NOW. All of the bumps, bruises, and experiences that I’ve encountered along my journey so far have definitely helped to shape me into the Opal that I am today. I allow myself to accept and love me here and now.
There’s a lot of knowledge that I’ve gained over the years in the realm of taking care of mind, body, and soul. And, there are certain things that resonate more with me personally than others that I am going back to. Eating a pescatarian diet (seafood, fruits, veggies, and no other meat), doing yoga and meditating on a consistent basis helped me to thrive in the past and I am now returning back to self. However, along my journey, I picked up others’ emotional baggage, thoughts, fears and eating habits and made them my own to my detriment. I gained a lot of physical weight while picking up others’ baggage. After realizing that I was being self-destructive, I decided to go back to my ways of self-care that I found success with initially. So now the question is, are you holding onto to dead weight that may be holding you back from stepping into your greatness? Examine all areas of your life right now: emotional, physical, financial, and spiritual health. Are there any habits, people, or energy that are keeping you stagnant? Releasing what no longer serves you will allow you to show up in the world on a new level-no longer shading your light, but BEing the best you can be.
How do you release these things? It starts by taking an honest inventory of where you currently are, identifying the things that are holding you back, and symbolically or physically releasing them. Examples of such release are: making a list of what no longer serves on paper and then burning the list or flushing it down the toilet, or allowing yourself to emotionally go through the list and FEEL how each thing makes you react. The act of FEELING through traumatic experiences allows us to fully process them, and move forward. How many people (including yourself) do you know who have had traumatic experiences and literally shut-down. They didn’t allow themselves to FEEL and their system became overloaded by the attempt to hold on or block the emotions that naturally arise. Holding onto anything that we weren’t meant to creates an imbalance in our system and can also appear in the form of what we label as disease. To support your holistic health, please check in with your mind, body, and spirit today-you may surprised what you find.
