Life brings you the opportunities to learn
Each day when you get out of bed do you think about the small and the not so small events and experiences that will be coming your way? Some of these events and experiences you may face easily and confidently, not really thinking much about them. These are the events where your previous experience and learning allow you to confidently deal with these circumstances. You also meet with experiences where you may feel overwhelmed, inexperienced, out of your depth and unable to internally organise and resolve what has happened.
Do you feel yourself cringe, do you feel embarrassed or do you become emotional when you recall one of those events or experiences that you were unable to respond to immediately, or sort through and resolve? Do these moments still linger in your memory? Do you go back and think about them again and again? Do they leave you feeling angry or sad, unworthy, depressed or stuck?
It is your unresolved issues that disempower you and create a drain on your energy system. When your issues remain unresolved you have less energy available to you.
Your design as a human is to learn, to process through and find answers to each and every challenge you face in both the small and larger events in your life. You do so by internally reflecting, thinking things through, seeing it again in your mind’s eye, burying it or sharing it. You can do many things with your challenges.
You could compare the internal part of this activity to the way your digestive system works. Your digestive ability allows you to take in food, which is then broken down at specific physiological stages. The goodness and nutrition is extracted and used by your body and any waste left over is finally released. Many small processes contribute to healthy digestion.
You follow a somewhat similar pathway when you ‘digest’ or process through events and experiences that are presented to you in daily life.
You deal with:
- raw emotion
- the facts
- your thoughts
- your responses
- your feelings
- your insights
- what was said and not said
- the energy of the event
There are many components involved in this process. Your chakras activate and help you to find the correct responses both in the moment and afterwards as you sort through the detail. Your human intelligence system is used to sort through and check everything that has happened. You go over things, you search for some of the missing parts, you ponder on why things have occurred, you question, you reflect sometimes over and over again trying to find your own responsibility and hand back to others that which is not yours to take on. You want to resolve the issue.
If you do not have the detail you need or the mental and emotional clarity required you can become confused and overwhelmed. You may not be able to resolve how you feel and remain emotional about events or experiences, even for years afterwards. You have become stuck. Your chakras can also become stuck and deliver less energy into and through your energetic and physical body systems.
You can only release the energy of an event or experience when you are fully resolved with it within yourself.
Have you absorbed responsibility for others
You might be holding onto responsibility for what has occurred and the responsibility may not be yours. The energy and charge from taking on this responsibility gets stored in your muscles, your body, your cells and your energy centres. This means the flow of your own energy is diminished and below what it could be. This can occur when children go through a stressful or even traumatic event and the adults involved do not deal well with it or do not assist the child to reconcile the situation.
Children can easily absorb what is not dealt with and they become burdened and sometimes act out trying to resolve the issues that are not really theirs to deal with. The child can become stuck. Adults may have an inner child aspect that has remained stuck from childhood. You might relate to this if you had a significant event in childhood that you could not find a resolution to.
Taking on the energy of situations of conflict doesn’t only happen to children. It can also happen in close adult relationships, friendships, work relationships and more, when healthy boundaries are not formed.
If you or a younger aspect of you is stuck, it might be time to consider freeing yourself from old burdens and emotions, and instead gain more energy with that new sense of freedom and the confidence you seek.
