Bringing back feelings from being numb in life
Everyday stress and suffering over time becomes a self defense of numbness that is carried around each day.
It may feel like, “always going through the motions in life.”
Not wanting to feel the hurtful or painful feelings. It pushes away the other emotions that are wanting to be experienced. The joy, the gratitude, the possibility, the wonder within each day.
It is extraordinary how a perspective shifts that numbness. Refocusing on what brings life and energy into each moment.
It no longer feels like things are “going through the motions.”
There is a purpose and commitment to feel again. A revitalized awakening that slowly opens vision to exciting possibilities.
The realization that intention must be focused on the thoughts which demand attention to be experienced.
The emotions need to be processed, acknowledged and accepted. A gentle handling without judgement. An openness to refrain from judging the judgement of the emotions. Shame and guilt are not wrong. They are sending me a message to uncover what they are trying to tell me.
Offering the choice to let go of suffering
The one small step of being in the presence of thought and emotion begins to shift perspective.
The soul wants to wake up. It wants to be seen, it wants to be heard.
It is waiting for permission.
Each passing day that the soul is asleep, it becomes restless.
Continually trying to attract attention.
All the soul truly wants is to be reunited with the heart.
To be guided in life with connected trust and courage.
Break the continual pattern of numbing out in an attempt to feel better through extreme satiations that fill the void.
Binge watching, screen scrolling, addiction choosing activities to quiet the mind and avoid feeling.
Fear of the attempt to break free from the safe space that has been established.
Curiosity and self discovery await a committed focus.
Begin to explore the questions,
“what wants to be acknowledged?”
“What part of me wants to be heard?”
“What would I rather be experiencing instead?”
“What do I need, what is required of me?”
Let my soul awaken from it’s slumber.
Let it breathe the fullness of being alive again.
Let the healing begin.
Let the unravelling be revealed.
Allow the transformation to unfold within.
May I see the vibrant colors of life
May I be grateful for this moment I chose to see.
