You think you’ve done all that you can
and still there’s something missing
You work so hard to heal
and you just peel back layers
You think you’ve gone down every road
crossed every “t”
dotted every “i”
felt every emotion
seen every trauma
experienced every pain
forgiven every person
There’s still something missing
I’ve come to believe our sole purpose on earth is to find our way back to our authentic selves. We are born little innocent babies and spend the next 20 years burying our truth with pain and shame, and guilt and fear. The next 20 years we laugh at life as we boldly believe we are invincible, and we gradually begin to feel something is not right.
If we are lucky, we move into the healing game as we start to recognize our own mortality. We do lots of soul searching and lots of work to heal the fractured parts, but invariably we miss something.
There are three spokes on the wheel of healing; mind, body, and soul, and each one has to be addressed and integrated to find the strength and harmony of your authentic soul.
I don’t know why healing happens when it happens, or why it doesn’t happen when it doesn’t happen. Perhaps it is something that has a mind of its own; something we don’t control.
It is like it has a life cycle and no matter how much work we do it only comes to the surface after it has moved through the levels of consciousness; after it has moved up and out of our cells and all the stars have aligned – meaning our body, mind, and soul are in agreement that the time is right! Yes, you are safe and protected and now is the time for you to face every single thing without fear.
There is pseudo-healing, and then there is deep, complete, visceral healing. Pseudo-healing is all the work you do, and you have an intellectual understanding (you are in your mind.) Then something happens and you discover a truth that hits you on the inside like a lightning bolt. It is deep in your body, and it connects to your mind and finally – mind and body are on the same wavelength – in agreement.
Your body is thankful that you “get it” and it cries. It cries from every cell, and you have physical symptoms. But you are not afraid because you know this understanding is so powerful and you feel such a release as your body lets go of all the bad memories.
And then your soul smiles.
When body and mind come together and integrate into truth over past trauma there is a rising crescendo of love. Then the soul breathes a sigh of relief because the triumvirate is once again united in the same place – in the same space – connected as one!
It is such a freeing experience to have such integration – the emotional healing I experienced was life-changing! I would just like to add that for anyone who is in the middle of their journey, in the middle of their pain, there is always help available. It can feel so hopeless as you sit with the shame and feel like you can’t share it with anyone.
In my experience, it is facing this pain and shame that actually takes the fear out of it! And once we eliminate the heavy blanket of fear, it allows us to free ourselves of all that has been buried for so long.
