The past few years has felt a variety of ways, for me, it’s felt like time has melded together. It’s a lump of time.
Where we have literally based things off of, well had you had your 2nd surgery yet?! Oh ok the third? Had we heard back from them? Oh what are we waiting on now?
When reality hits.
Many times as life is happening, life IS happening.
What does that mean?!
Although the “major” for the majority of us in our household was nothing physical we had to heal from, it was heavily emotional.
After a great weekend, having a good day I was suddenly reliving a frustrating time not long ago and I instantly felt triggered. Then what felt like instantly, things began clicking into place, not necessarily giving answers, but providing so much insight, in a very strong way.
I was hit with tears, as soon as this realization rocked me. I used to hide away if I cried, especially if I was at work. Now I normalize. Shit happens and sometimes it just sucks. I came home, feeling sad, angry, pissed off and wanting to “fix” something, I simply cannot fix. I leaned in, allowed myself patience, enjoyed a hot shower and cried. It felt so good. A variety of emotions flowed.
While in the shower I thought of Louise Hay’s book You Can Heal Yourself. A phenomenal book I was introduced to back in 2016, the beginning years of my holistic journey. Our minds are so powerful. So much in fact, the emotional experiences we have can 100% contribute to our physical health. Within this book Louise takes various health challenges, issues, illnesses etc and relates to an emotion and then an affirmation to flip. It then hit me, of the details of our kids body talk session earlier this spring and the emotions pulled up from my husband’s accident.
I first started all of our diffusers! Key, scent can instantly impact how we feel. Helps so much! Plus the emotional benefits of each oil, Love and Trust, Aging and Perspective, Shielding, Energetic Boundaries, Protection.
As I looked up some of the affirmations to go with the current, it began to make sense even more, in a different yet reassuring way. What better way to shift than to put somewhere we will all see them, many times during the day.
It’s not a matter of not feeling what we feel, it’s a matter of feeling it all, embracing whatever that may unfold as and supporting yourself in whatever way(s). Normalizing for our kids and the younger and older generations. The importance of feeling. The importance of talking, so no one feels alone. Ever. Feel, to Heal.
