Our card for the weekend, May 5th and 6th, is taken from the Whispers of Love Oracle Cards – Embrace your Emotions – “Don’t push down your feelings or judge your emotions.”
Sometimes I feel that on this spiritual journey we are told by spiritual teachers and coaches that we should always be in a state of happiness, or joy, or bliss, and most certainly feeling love for everyone, and forgiving everyone who has caused us pain of any kind. And that if we are not doing so, then we have somehow missed the ascension boat, or something is wrong with us and we need more healing work done, or some new teaching to learn, or whatever is being offered by those out there who profess to be leading the way. If we were meant to be perfect here, we wouldn’t come here in the first place.
The truth is that we are already perfect on the other side, and we come here to have other experiences, human experiences, in this 3rd dimensional reality. So while we are here we are human and subject to all that being human entails. We are meant to experience our emotions as we feel them because if we don’t allow ourselves to feel angry, or sad, or whatever other negative emotion we might be experiencing in the moment, it will find a way to express through dis-ease, or pain of some sort in our bodies.
Of course just because we allow ourselves to feel these emotions doesn’t mean we have to act on them. For example, I’m a natural redhead and even though I am slow to anger, I do have the temper to match it. I bought myself one of those blow up punching bags so that when I need to let off some steam, I have myself a punching bag session. Whatever works for you is fine as long as it allows you to work through the emotion and clear your head. For some it’s going for a walk or a jog, or some other form of physical activity. For some it may be watching a funny movie or video about cute puppies or kittens. For some it may be channeling that emotion into a creative endeavor. Again whatever works is fine.
Just remember, because we sometimes experience negative emotions doesn’t mean anything more than that we are human. Also, all the increased energy on the planet is bringing up things to be healed, and it cannot be healed if we don’t allow ourselves to experience whatever it is so that we can work through it and hopefully be done with it once and for all. However, sometimes just when we think we have worked through it all, something comes up again that we thought we had healed already. This transformation process is like peeling back the layers of an onion. So be patient with yourself and know that you are doing just fine.
Have a great weekend everyone! ~Namaste~
Love & Light,
Carolyn & My Spirit Team
