SOMETIMES IT IS
WE ALL NEED TO KNOW HOW TO BE IN THE ETERNAL NOW AND HOW TO BE IN THIS MOMENT AND CREATE THE CHANGE WE WANT IN OUR LIVES.
Have you ever found yourself wondering about living in the eternal NOW and what that means to you?
I always strive to be in the here and now, not the past or the future, however, I constantly find myself missing much of the valuable information I have gained in the past and end up stuck and unable to move forward and help other people to do the same. I am a counsellor, advocate and trainer of people, and I am constantly having to shift from consciously knowing what experiences I have had in my life that relate to what it is that my clients are going through in order to be effective and responsible with what I do and who I am as a human being.
There are many times in my life that I have wondered about my past and what the reasons were for me having to go through all of the difficult experiences I have gone through in order to arrive in this moment today. In the past I used blame, shame, guilt, pain, and ignorance to cover my reality so that I could maintain what I believed to be my “personal safety“ . This kept me stuck in the muck of my life in order to have situations that were familiar to deal with. When I knew how to deal with all of the negativity, it was challenging, and profoundly simple to stay in the same place. I really did not like me or value me in any way. Today I like who I am, I also treasure many of the experiences I have had in my life, however, there are certainly parts of my life that I have dealt with and I have decided to move beyond, take ownership of my creation of them, and also own the means that I needed to work through the personal changes that have taken place because of the experiences. Amazingly, I have always known that there was a valuable reason for me to have gone through these experiences, and without knowing any different I just put it down to self growth, the evolution of my soul and the unveiling of my life purpose. I had been asking what the reason was once again, and when you ask the question, the teacher usually like magic appears.
My new teacher appeared a few days ago when I met with a wonderful young man who reminded me just how important it is to bring forward the memories from the past, and to relate these memories to where I have moved to today, no matter how negative these memories are!
Although we are all unique human beings there are times that it sure is important to share experiences with another human being, whether they are positive or negative, in order for us all to benefit and move into the realm of being the real, loving, caring and compassionate people that we are today!
Thank you to all of my teachers in the University of Life that I attend every second of every day.
Peace, love, light and blessings!
