Have you ever noticed that when you are fully present in your life, everything flows and the possibilities are endless? Thoughts of the past naturally conjure positive feelings and the future seems bright and filled with potential. These are the moments we flow with grace and ease and experience life as a beautiful expression. We notice the subtle perfection all around us and our hearts expand with a distinct knowing that all is well.
Then there are the moments when we pick up on a suggestion, whether from someone or something on our path or think about a past memory that stimulates a sense of hurt - these are the unresolved emotions in our consciousness that have crystallized in form. In a split second, we transport ourselves out of the present moment, via our thoughts and feelings, to a point where we start reliving this painful stuck emotional energy. It then begins to color our present and future experience with all of the unresolved emotions like anger, guilt, shame, worry, greed or fear.
What is the difference between these two realities? When we are aware of our thoughts and feelings and trust the process of life, we remain in an unconditional and timeless state of consciousness and act according to our heartfelt wisdom. Everything is interconnected and we empower our imagination with potential while we seek to fulfill our hopes and dreams. Obstacles and mistakes are recognized as serving to refine our goals rather than block our path and we allow them to be a part of the journey. Love is our guiding emotion.
To the contrary, when we react to a situation identifying with our fears and doubts, we give away our creative responsibility and attach ourselves to a moment in time and space. This incomplete perspective or emotional response is eventually accepted as truth simply because we did not know how to let go. From childhood on, these energetic limitations repeat themselves throughout our lives until we decide one day to release our attachment to them.
We can choose to detach from these distressing limited memories through forgiveness, both for ourselves and all the characters and circumstances that we once perceived to have caused us to feel hurt, harmed, violated or victimized. This is our key to personal freedom and our ability to flow with life once again. When we heal and release ourselves from our own limitations, we also heal and free the world around us.
Unconditional love is indeed timeless since it is impossible to ever attach ourselves to anything when we remain present and loving in our perspective.
