As the season turns and
flowers bloom, newness begins to surround us. During this time I am reminded of the importance of having
newness within. If we have not spent time unraveling our childhood experiences
and wounds, how can we ever say it's a fresh new day? For example, if a child has lost a parent, a feeling
of abandonment may often carry into adulthood. This may express itself as a deep feeling of longing for
someone or something to fill that void.
This "past" wound is likely to lead to "present" relationship problems
or issues such as overeating or overspending. When we ignore our childhood wounds indefinitely, our bodies
can even begin to express our emotional pains physically.
We all carry the risk of
getting stuck in patterns of automatic reactions from our past experiences and
from this place we are unable to fully enjoy the beauty that exists in the
moment. Thankfully every one of us
has the opportunity to peel away the layers in order to become present to the
newness within. And while it may
be challenging, this process of self-discovery and emotional healing leads to
the true you...the best you!
Until our next adjustment...
Yours in health,
