Pain. If we’re alive, we feel it.

If we’re honest with ourselves, we don’t want anything to do with it.

And if we’re like most, we’ve found incredibly creative ways to avoid it.

Humans are brilliant escape artists by nature. We can resist this fact or accept it.

When we’re not in alignment with our Highest selves, deep suffering ensues.

We CRAVE:

mind numbing drinks

every possible thing that even slightly resembles “love”

avoidance

fame and adoration

isolating

being right, damnit!

drugs that numb out our emotions

excessive amounts of food

unhealthy food

approval

drama

sugar buzzes

moment by moment news fixes

constant background noise so we don’t have to face the music

having the latest and greatest gizmos

fitting in

shopping

zoning out to t.v. and the interwebs

busyness so we feel “productive”

blaming others to avoid our own stuff

ETC…ETC…ETC…!

These cravings gnaw on our bodies and souls and create a very intense discord within. As much as we know that indulging these cravings will never do the trick…because ummmm, have they really ever?…we will do anything to dull the pain anyway. We are so sneaky…or are we really?

The time is now to shift humanity’s old debilitating habit of believing that all the problems in the world are “out there.” The reality is that we live in a perfect universe that is reflecting of all our tumultuous inner worlds, daily. It’s time to stop the creative self deception, wake up, own up and shine the f**k on.

Absolutely nothing will ever fill this hole. Ever.

Why? It’s not real. It’s a feeling. A feeling of emptiness.

Instead of fleeing from this highly uncomfortable place, what if we choose to look at it as a grace-filled warning sign? A major red flag that’s saying: Warning! You have lost your connection to who you really are. To Source. To your highest self. Your thoughts are creating your own personal hell!

We have often been told that we all have this gaping dark hole within and we’ll be searching to fill it until we take our last breath. But what if this is just a bold faced lie? Doesn’t this thought or idea breed feelings of hopelessness? Despair? Sadness? Desperation?

Challenge these falsities and step into your ever lovin’ Bliss that’s BEGGING to dance with your Spirit.

Internal ingredients needed: Courage, Willingness, Practice.

When the pain hits, acknowledge it. Feel it. Lean into it 100%. Resist the temptation to avoid it. Instead – – – bawl, shake, sweat, rage out loud at home by yourself, feel-the-shit. Know that it’s temporary and that this too shall pass. How do we know this? It always has.

After feeling-the-shit, you will feel a shift. For some it will be subtle and for others it will be huge, depending on how deep you went with feeling the feelings. Breath into it. Now, enjoy your new found reality. You’ve earned it, big time.

3.   Acknowledge yourself for transmuting the pain.

      Seriously. this is big work!!!

      Be present to your new space and all that it’s offering you.

      Keep moving forward and don’t look back.

      Breath into where you are in this moment and trust.

      Trust that everything is unfolding for your highest good right

      here, right now.

      You are exactly where you are meant to be.

     Remember that by healing yourself, you are truly healing

     the world.

     Feeling one feeling at a time…
