Spiritually Side-Stepping Our Wounded Souls!

We are all living in a world where there is so much chaos, confusion and fear. I think we all are exhausted, looking for ways to escape. Is escaping the answer? It’s a question we each must answer.

You’ve heard me say that what’s happening within our midst will reveal who we really are. I now believe what’s happening within our midst is a reflection of who we have become collectively.

Many people are showing themselves to us in ways that we find difficult to accept. It’s easy to get on social media,  get into intense debates with each other and show ugly sides of ourselves to the world. The world gets to see our wounds loud and clear.

But what’s even more dangerous are those of us who get up in the morning and read a passage of scripture, say a few words of prayer, then jump on social media to share our newfound wisdom while still carrying deep muted, unacknowledged and unresolved wounds.

We run successful businesses, make great money, have plenty of friends and become popular, all while avoiding our real internal issues, challenges and pains that show up in ways that have us blinded us to the truth.

You see, hiding and side-stepping the truth can be seductive and deceptive. Because it frees us from dealing with our shame, our truth, and our pain lodged in our souls. So we take the path of least resistance.

For some, there’s a knowing that we still have deeper issues that remain untouched, ignored and unhealed. For others, we’ve learned how to dodge and side-step the truth that our soul is crying out through our false sense of spirituality.

Our need to be applauded and significant drown out the deep whispers that urge us to do the real healing work on ourselves.  In the midst of these arising times that humanity is now facing, it’s easy to blurt out phrases like, “God will fix it, It’s happening for a reason or We are living in the last days” all to make us feel better and temporarily escape.

Yet, if things are going to change, we’ve got to change. If things are going to get better, we each must get better. This must happen regardless of who is in the White House.  Because at a deeper level and collectively, the world is reflecting back to us who we (humanity) have become at our core.

Why is it so important that our wounds heal? Because it’s our wounds that keep us divided and separated. Our wounds keep us hating instead of loving. They keep us bitter instead of forgiving and our wounds keep us bound instead of free.

Yes, this is a wake us call for us all. The alarm is sounding. And if we are going to heal collectively, it must start with each of us individually. Individually we must brave the uncharted waters of our soul to swim deeply into our wounds, to truly heal what we’ve been so good at side-stepping because it was just too painful to feel.

The truth is, God can and will heal our land. Yet, we must acknowledge we have wounds that need to be healed. The healing of our individual souls is how we heal the soul of humanity. And it starts with each of us acknowledging the truth about who we have become and the truth about WHO WE CAN BE!

Design Your Week

Screen-Shot-2013-03-03-at-6.26.39-AMI  truly believe that we have the power to live our lives by design. We all  have been born with amazing capabilities to create life with our thoughts and our words. Today, I want to challenge you to dedicate this week to God.  Decide that you are going to have a wonderful week filled with love, peace and joy.

You can do this by starting each day in prayer, meditation and focusing your attention on Love. Begin to imagine in your mind the kind of week you want and begin to speak that image out loud. Be specific, feel the emotion attached to it, write what you’re feeling down in your journal, read it aloud and thank God for it being granted.  Our words give power to our lives. Therefore remember to speak only what you desire to see manifested in your life. Purpose in your heart to remain in Love’s space. Because that’s where God lives.

WARNING –  I want to warn you, however, that the very moment you decide to make love a priority in your life, everything that’s not like love will begin to surface.

When unloving things happen you can choose to take the high road as exampled here:

  • When a co-worker says something that is untrue about you.
  • Embrace your husband and kiss him on the forehead when he doesn’t take the trash out once again.
  • Remind your child how magnificent he is when he is acting like a fool.

I’m not suggesting that you become a door mat.  What I am telling you is to refuse to focus on the evil around you and choose to focus and see the Love of God that’s every where.

You have the option to see life differently and when you do, you will make new choices that support your new reality and vision of life.

When we choose to love instead of hate, when we choose to give instead of take, when we choose to laugh instead of complain, we will have what we desire. We are co-creators with God and it is our birthright to be happy, joyful and free on any given day we choose. Dedicate this week to God; to Love and you will experience an extraordinary Love Filled week.  It’s yours and you deserve it!
