It involves awareness, acceptance, acknowledging resistance, and taking radical action. Simply stated, it requires accountability for our words, thoughts, actions, or lack of actions.
Earlier this week, when I was soaking in the sunshine outdoors, I had an epiphany. A positive shift. It was a magical light bulb moment when everything became crystal clear.
In awe, I clearly understood what I needed to do. I must get out of my own way in effort to live in alignment with my true self. To make positive changes in all area's of my life; physically, emotionally, spiritually, financially, and personal relationships.
I am letting go of my old stories that replay painful memories. The nightmares that keep me stuck.
I've spent quality time to work through each traumatic experience. I have addressed it, acknowledged it, built awareness about it, and lamented the horrific offenses.
Journaling. Going to therapy with a trauma-informed counselor. Praying. Meditating. Practicing self-care. Doing the hard work of recovering.
I guarantee, it's messy. I have shed a lot of tears. There is no easy way to confront and work through compounded trauma, including Complex PTSD.
What I've discovered is that these old stories no longer help me, heal me, nor serve me. And it's time to release them. To surrender everything.
Truly, I am on a healing journey. In determination, I'm fighting for my life, my health, my highest aspirations, and my future. This chapter is going to have a happy ending.
If I want to attract positive energy and experiences into my life, I must focus on the new. To explore amazing opportunities ahead of me. To embrace gratitude. To redirect my time, thoughts, talents, and energy.
After having this enlightening revelation, I was flooded with peace. My entire being from head to toes felt like it was immersed in serenity.
It's led me onto a new path. A magnificent transformation.
Major changes are on the horizon. I’m releasing and healing. One by one, I am making important lifestyle changes.
I am excited and ready for a fresh start. Let the adventure begin!
