Stored deep within our bodies are the memories of what we have lived through – the jOy, the pain, the exhaustion, the elation, the tension, the pleasure, the trauma and the comfort. The act of daily living requires us to get on with it and to move out from those experiences, but within our cells, those memories are retained, re-emerging as strong reactions to circumstances that bring us back in time to those experiences. Even if you have healed unkind experiences that you have lived through; even if you have talked through and deeply understood the necessity of those encounters that have helped to shape your sOul; even if you believe that you have gone on from your past, it still exists within you as a ‘muscle-memory’ imprint.
There are times when those memories arise so that they can be reviewed within the healing benefit of time, experience and perspective. There are other times when those memories arise so that you can ‘see’ whether you have truly moved on or whether you remain stuck in a moment. How do you know which is arising for you? The scale to which your body reacts to someone or something that ‘reminds’ you of the fruit you previously ate from a bitter tree. How you react will give you an experiential gauge of how deep the healing has gone, how you have integrated those experiences into your life and whether you are veering ‘off path’ by the intensity of those memories. During this day of truth, remember you are not your past, regardless of how it has shaped you. True freedom comes when you finally realise that you have not made a mistake, nothing in your life is out of place and every state of mind you experience – joy and wonder; despair and loneliness, is part of your path.
Tread consciously and confidently on YOUR path over the coming days.
