Removing Your Inner Thorn.
In order to grow, and bring new blessings into your life, you must let go of what has happened before.
It’s a good time to be reminded of this, as we move towards welcoming a new year.
When we learn to give up the struggle to stay the same, we will grow, and true change will happen in our lives.
One of the most important areas that may be calling out for change, is the way that we solve our personal problems.
We normally look to solve our personal problems by protecting ourselves ~ and real transformation begins when we can embrace what’s troubling us as agents for our growth.
To remove your inner thorn.
For example, if you have an actual thorn in your arm, it would be very painful. Every time you brushed past something and touched it, or if you got close to someone, you would be worrying if someone would touch it and it would flare up.
This thorn is a constant source of disturbance, and to solve the problem, you have two choices:
- Protect yourself – make sure that nothing touches the thorn in your arm.
- Decide that because it’s so disturbing and painful, you must remove it from your arm so that it doesn’t bother you again.
The effects of your choice will determine what happens for you for the rest of your life.
If you decide not to touch the thorn in your arm, protecting yourself becomes the work of your life. You will go to any lengths to avoid others touching the thorn, you will sleep differently, and you will make sure that you don’t get too close to people, so that you protect yourself.
The thorn runs your entire life ~ it effects your decisions, including where you will go, where you will work, where you will live, and how you sleep at night.
A life of protecting yourself from your problem becomes a reflection of the problem itself.
You didn’t solve anything by avoiding the thorn, and instead of protecting yourself, the thorn has ended up running your life.
You’ve dedicated your life to avoiding your problem, but it ‘s not solved, all you’ve done is devote your life to avoiding it and it becomes the centre of your universe ~ it’s all there is.
It’s obvious that it would be much better off taking out the thorn in your arm, and you have the same choices when it comes to removing your inner thorns.
This is what we do, we allow our fear of our inner thorns affect our behaviour and life choices.
We limit our lives, just like someone who has an actual thorn in their arm, and doesn’t have it removed.
If there is something disturbing you inside of yourself, you can make a choice. You can remove the thorn ~ by no longer avoiding or suppressing your feelings ~ and no longer focusing your life around it.
This is possible for you.
You can look within to the core of your being, and decide that you don’t want the weakest part of you running your life.
You want to be free.
You want to talk to people because you find them interesting, not because you are lonely.
You want to have relationships with people because you genuinely like them, not because you need for them to like you.
You want to love because you truly love, not because you need to avoid your inner problems.
You can free yourself, by being with yourself ~ mindfully, wholeheartedly and lovingly.
You are not the pain you feel, nor are you the part of yourself that feels fear and stress. Because your consciousness is separate and aware of these things, you can be free.
Your disturbances can come up, and you can let them go.
Your inner thorns are blocked energies from the past, so they can be released.
By working together, you are stepping forward and allowing your blocked energies to be released with mindful awareness.
When you feel triggered by others and are feeling fear, emotional pain and energies from the past, don’t push them back down and try to protect yourself from pain ~ know that there is another way.
Together, we will sit with your core self, and you will begin to experience the strength of your inner being, even when you or your heart feels weak.
This is your path.
Let go and be sustained by an inner energy flow that comes from within you, and you will be free.
with joy and holiday love, xo.
