Question: If the energy field contains the past, present and future and we can learn to see it, could we by healing the present somehow heal the past too? (& the future of course.)
Answer: Yes, we take the healing in all directions. It’s beautiful, isn’t it?
When you heal the past in the present, you then release the future.
Many of us don’t recognise how we create our future due to the pain of our past. We don’t understand that healing the past happens in the here and now. In part, this is because it’s easy to turn the past into a static truth, a story we have retold enough times that its reality is so deeply etched into who we have become.
Something startling, or tragic, is usually the impetus for us to look at our past with new understanding to view the “bigger picture”.
If you feel that you may be plagued by your past, then this is for you.
But only if you want to be free and wish to be open-hearted, with enthusiasm for life that comes with making peace with the past.
As you probably know, sometimes events from the past have a mind of their own. Ancestral shadows, past life energies, early memories and negative beliefs may be “running” like a program on a hard drive of a computer, which you may not even be aware of, on a conscious level. It may surprise you to know that you can inherit emotional experiences and imprints from your ancestors.
Trauma experienced by your ancestors as long as 2000 years ago can impact your subconscious mind and block your path to happiness and abundance today.
If you feel that your past is affecting your life, read on. Because you will discover 10 facts that may just be the key to unlock the door to your full, abundant, joyful, infinitely sane expression of you.
Be free of the past, and you can go on and simply enjoy your life.
Do you feel emotional?
Limited by fear, distrust and neediness?
Do you have a “blinkered” view of what is possible for you?
10 Truth Bombs…
Apply these 10 Truth Bombs, to see clearly, get you unstuck and soar.
1. The past isn’t really about the past.
When you look with great clarity, you will see that there is no actual thing called the past. Everything that happens happens in the present – it can’t be any other way. Memories of events are thoughts occurring in the present. Anger or hurt about the past is happening now. Your present moment experience in the now is what keeps the past alive.
What is amazing about this understanding is that it shows you that the way out of your suffering is always in the present. You can change your perspective – now, focus on something different – now, feel your feelings – as they are right now.
If you want to heal from the past, put your attention on your present moment experience and this too will change your future. If it goes deeper then consider having an Ancestral Healing. Read my free eBook to see if it resonates with you.
A memory is a thought, and a thought has no power or meaning whatsoever, unless you give it power or meaning. You have many thoughts about things that happened long ago, and these thoughts cause no problems. But some thoughts become obsessive. You have an emotional reaction to them and you think them over and over. You may even have beliefs related to them, for example, “I am justified in thinking this” or “I need an apology so I can move on.” This keeps them very much alive, affecting your ongoing experience.
If you want to be free of the past, let go of those thoughts. Know that it doesn’t serve you to repeat them and that thinking they are justified only delays your freedom. Be prepared to take a look at the pure experience of your feelings without the layer of thinking that solidifies them.
This can be cleared with Ancestral Healing which discovers the root cause.
3. What not to do…
Your goal is not to:
Make yourself forget about the past (impossible)
Stuff or ignore your feelings (creates other problems – addiction, anyone?)
Wait for an apology or acknowledgment (postpones happiness)
Wait for time to heal all wounds (you may need more than time)
Wallow endlessly in your emotions (oh, so painful)
Redo the past (you can’t change what happened but you absolutely can change your reaction to what happened)
What you focus on is what will grow. If you continually focus on sadness, regret and revenge, then they will become your reality. As an alternative, be very willing to see through these stories as much as is needed. Be open to energy moving through your body and honouring what you’re feeling, rather than pushing the feelings away and staying stuck.
Once you accept responsibility, you have the power of letting go. Your happiness is your responsibility alone, not anyone else’s. You might be very familiar with feeling like a victim. But this is a passive, unempowered position, leaving you waiting for words or actions from someone else, something you can’t control.
Taking responsibility means being open to recognising how your own internal landscape is feeding your suffering. What thoughts make you unhappy? What feelings are stuck in your body and heart? How do you make yourself suffer by recycling negative memories through your mind? Being stuck in the past means that a part of your heart is closed. Take responsibility for going right into those bruised and tender places.
Ancestral Healing can re-balance your chakras and ensure your heart chakra is rebalanced and open.
We tell ourselves all sorts of stories that bring trouble to our lives. Want to be trouble-free? Here is the recipe…
Notice how entranced you can be by the stories of drama and victimhood that appear in your mind.
Just for a moment, let yourself lose interest in these thought stories.
See that what is left is a pattern of physical sensations, maybe gripping, tension, or burning. You may never have noticed these sensations before, but they have probably been there for a long time.
Now notice this: You are aware, and these sensations are appearing in your awareness. They come, go, and change, but here you are: aware.
Take the perspective of awareness, and the sensations have the freedom to be. They aren’t ignored or suppressed. You aren’t so busy in the story that you don’t notice them.
Now notice: Are you suffering? No, you are simply experiencing sensation as awareness.
Besides getting stuck in the story, you might become aware of beliefs you hold about what needs to happen for you to let go. These are simply more thoughts that keep you distracted from the heart of the matter. Here are some possibilities:
“I’ll never forgive them.”
“It is someone else’s responsibility to make this better for me.”
“If I let go, I’m somehow approving others’ bad behaviour.”
“I need an apology.”
“Life is unfair.”
“It was so bad that it’s not possible for me to heal.”
You life begins now, in this very moment. You can always start anew. Don’t add fuel to the fire of these limiting thoughts. Swap them to new beliefs such as:-
“This is a new moment, I am free to let go”
“My spiritual growth is not dependent on others”
“It is strong to forgive and let go”
“I refuse to limit myself – I am always willing to take the next step”
Ancestral Healing can remove old beliefs in your Akashic Records and replace them with positive ones.
8. Relationship troubles relate to your past.
Unless you see through all of it, you’re a product of your past and the ideas you have formed about how relationships work. This keeps the past alive in the present. Do you fear rejection or commitment? Do you feel you need approval and attention? Do you isolate or push people away? Do you need to be on top and in control? Do you have difficulty trusting?
Untangle your thoughts and feelings about the past with Ancestral Healing and live in freedom from them as you move forward.
Dwelling on what happened and leaking your feelings all over the place will keep you suffering. Hiding, indulging, or stuffing your feelings doesn’t work in the long-term. Instead, bring intelligence and clarity to your direct experience. Cultivate a fire for peace and ease that serves you well.
10. Finding out who you are is the ultimate freedom.
If you define yourself by your past, you will be living as a fraction of what is possible for you. Say you think of yourself as wronged or abused or victimised. Or you see yourself as having gotten the short end of the stick.
Defining yourself by what happened doesn’t help you now. It’s like wearing clothes that never fit. Is it time to take them off?
It’s easy to believe in a mistaken identity. It feels so true to think we are the result of what happened or the sum total of our thoughts and feelings. But the truest thing about you is that you are aware. Life presents a passing array of experiences – thoughts, emotions, events, people. These all arise in you but are not you.
Live as the awareness that you are – fully alive, here, not in conflict with anything. Know who you are, and the pain of the past will barely be a ripple…on the surface…of the immeasurable vastness of you.
