You are an evolving light and the past is what has helped to shape who you are today, and what you do today shapes who you are becoming tomorrow. Yesterday is a gift, today is the present. Let us finally put the past where it rightfully belongs and see the opportunities that are now before us.
Releasing judgement and how we feel about our past is an important task in the journey of awakening. When we harbour negative feelings it affects us on every level and blocks us from leading the life we know we should be leading. Remember the Law of Attraction, we get back that which we are vibrating to. When we see the opportunities we have experienced because of these events, hopefully we can then see the gift and transform our feelings, which in turn transforms our mental attitude, the Law of Cause and Effect in action.
While it is your past that has helped to shape who you are, and in a way is a badge of honour for you have fought the good fight to get to where you are today, it does not need to define who you are. This is why it is so important to see it's completion, you can then freely move forward without repeating the same cycle over and over with new actors playing the old roles.
The first step in this process is to release any judgement. This is the judgement you feel toward yourself for the choices that you made. You might hear echos of this letting go from those around you who have agreed to play the catalyst in your contracts by them offering your 'their' opinion, this is usually a good sign that you are indeed working on this energy currently. In other words, there is usually at least one person in your family who has agreed to 'play' the roll of catalyst in your life lessons, sometimes a few will assume the roll. This catalyst is the one who most often says comments that feel negative or unsupported, when in truth they love you very much, it is just they sense the energy and show you what you are feeling on some level. Most often if you asked other people to describe this person, they would be seen as positive and loving to the rest of the world. When you become empowered and walk in mastery with this life lesson, it will seem as if these people change overnight, when in reality it is you who has changed and they are just responding to your vibration. Judgement in itself is not a bad thing when you are referring to using it as a discernment tool, however I find that usually humans attach a darker, harsher meaning with judgement. In our religious upbringings most of us are taught that we will face a final judgement day when we die, so I am presuming we have distorted the meaning from this past experience. It is always good to look at how you personally feel about the word and how it is reflected in your life. Releasing judgment of right or wrong, or good or bad helps this process. See it from the point of view of spirit or your higher self, 'All is in love and is good or better.' There are times in my life where I wished I had tapped more into spirit and asked questions about what I was doing next, however there are some things I might have changed at the time if I had thought them through that I am grateful every day that I did not and just followed the path of spirit. Each choice that I have made has led me to this exact place and well, I guess there is no place like home.
Step two is to really take a good look at yourself. Look at all the talents and skills you currently have. These can be educational or personal growth classes you have taken as well as all of those life lessons you learned earning that badge of honour. Really look at these as I am sure it will actually amaze you when you see all that you have under your belt. As you create this list, think of how each of these steps have brought you something that is useful to you right now. I did this when I was first trying to figure out how I could be in passion of creating space for others to heal when I didn't have the physical means to create it on the physical plane. I was actually quite amazed at what I had done as I do have a great variety of training and experience from Marketing to Nursing, to healing and more. All of these things have come in very handy as I use it all in my life now. Recently I was looking at why I choose a certain path, I actually am finding myself returning to that time and have the opportunity to make a different choice this time around.
Lastly, we have the transition that takes place as you release the feelings of unworthiness, missed opportunities and regrets. Be willing to forgive yourself. These are the transformations that are so important for you to get everything flowing in the direction of your desired path. You will begin creating a more firm foundation in your physical world and therefore seeing the desired results manifest in your life. Each time you think of this person or incident, remember that the person is your family at work or at play and their true essence, just like yours and who each one of you is at the core, is Creator light. Think of this energy as a part of each of you, regardless of who they are, and not some higher power in the Universe. It is a part of you, each and everyone of you! You are each trying to find your way, sometimes in the dark, and doing the best you can at that time. Do not compare yourself to another, for each of you sees the world from different eyes, see the beauty and the gift that each of you has brought to the world and keep your focus on trying to the best you can for yourself. Remember that as you let go of this energy, there is also a grieving process.
There is no more profound gift you can do for yourself than to change the energy of a troubled past. It will change your very life experience and the energy will start flowing to you, creating a more rewarding life. Take good care of yourself and your own consciousness. The light you shine today will never go away and it will light the path for others to follow by your example when they are ready to step into their contract of Human Angel.
Remember, you can always take a deep breath and choose again.
Love and infinite light, Sharon
