Living in fear either means you are living in the past or worrying about the future. Today we are going to talk about living in the past.
Do you find yourself reliving past events over and over again?
Do you struggle to let go of pain and hurt that others have caused you?
Well if you do, you are not fully embracing the now, or creating the future you truly desire. You are living in fear over and over again.
You are stuck in a time warp, harboring resentment, anger, pain and negative emotions. You are torturing yourself, draining your energy and playing the victim.
Victim = disempowerment.
Does this really sound like living?
More like living in dungeon all chained up!
It’s Time to Let the Past Go
It’s time to let the past go, heal yourself and create peace within. To free yourself to LIVE!
When you let the past go, you are no longer giving your power away to others. You stop living in fear.
The truth is, you are only harming yourself. You are causing yourself more pain.
Sounds totally insane doesn’t it?
Well it is, but it’s not your fault. You have been trained by your own past and programming to react and respond in a certain way.
You have created sabotaging patterns and programs, to keep you safe. They are there to protect you, or so they think that’s what they are doing.
But in fact they are contributing to you living in fear and keep you in the space of victimhood. You then continue to sabotage your peace and happiness.
This does not allow you to become empowered.
What Can You Do?
- checkTake action by choosing to let these experiences go. Make a conscious decision that you need to let the past go, in order to move forward and become empowered.
Learn to forgive and love YOURSELF! You don’t need to forgive the other person, or accept what they did was ok. You can understand things from their perspective, but work on loving and forgiving yourself first and allow true healing to take place.
Then you will no longer give them your power and you will become free.
- checkMeditate. Start a daily meditation practice to develop self awareness, inner peace and a sense of deep connection to yourself. Meditation will bring you into the present moment and recognise the truth of who you really are.
