“Many of us struggle with behavior patterns that cause us harm and keep us stuck in uncomfortable situations. Often the reason we cycle with these patterns is because subconsciously we dwell on the dysfunction…We focus on what we don’t want and therefore we get more of it!” Daily Agreements, Guidelines & Intentions, by Aimee Mosco and Donald L. Ferguson, page 57
We all experience the same thing in that we are born and then we grow physically, emotionally and mentally through the different stages of life. There are no two days in the existence of anyone living and breathing in which they experience the same exact thing. This means that we all grow at least a little bit each day.
How many times have you learned something new and wished you had known that piece of information earlier in life? Or lamented your lack of wisdom ‘back in the day’?
While it is not possible to turn the clock back and re-create the events of your past knowing what you know now, you can look at your past and review your experiences with a new view to initiate healing.
Childhood is a wonderous time. There is beauty in the innocence of children because they see life with an unrefined openness that gets lost along the way. It is purposeful to lose this because the openness can invite as much pain as it can joy. Discernment and boundaries are a necessity to function with balance in the adult world.
There is benefit in reviewing the events of your childhood, both the wonderous memories as well the ones that left deep wounds in their wake. It is not always necessary to relive trauma in detail to spark healing, but it can be helpful to identify your mindset at the time of the trauma and compare that to your current understanding.
Often times you get trapped in an old mindset, a mindset that was born before you knew differently. Your brain continued recirculating that un-awakened perspective even though it was not as applicable as you grew.
It is important for you to remember that you are the keeper of your memories. You can choose to recirculate your memories with a mindset formulated once upon a time, or you can choose to apply an overlay of your new, current perspective and love to shift the impact those old stories have on your life now. It takes some soul searching as well as a willingness to see the soul lessons associated with the past, and it may not be easy, but it will likely inspire a healing event that moves you forward from a stuck position.
