Where have you been? What have you been doing?
I have been spending some time in NYC, reflecting and healing.
In our digital world, I’ve noticed our society freaks out when the statuses to our social media change. This is not just with our social media or even our society but in our personal lives as well. Sometimes, the universe intervenes forcing us to take a pause, giving us no choice but to deal with the stillness.
What have you been reflecting on?
I have been reflecting on the past and the present. Finding the links between physical and emotional pain.
Have you ever noticed, if your physical body is going through a tremendous amount of pain, eventually you will pass out? When some madness happens to your life, your emotional strength breaks down. We as humans naturally transfer that emotional pain to our body forcing it to react. If our physical bodies are unable to react from the emotional pain, we are unable to handle it.
The first layer, whether purposefully or naturally, we transfer our pain to the body. We freak out. Like a roller coaster, all of our emotions go from anger to sadness. We try to fight and figure out where these overwhelming emotions are coming from. We use different emotions to suppress these experiences. We try everything until the pain just gets worse.
The second layer is the deep emotional part. We come to a point when both our physical and emotional pain becomes so extreme, we can’t give in to either way. We are at a standstill and cannot allow ourselves to heal. We come to an internal moment, where we either die figuratively, or we wake up from the inside out. This moment is both a curse and blessing.
Are you fully healed?
Not yet, but with time I will be.
How long will it take?
I don’t know. I am not in a rush. Every day is about learning. With each passing moment, I gain a little more self-recognition. In this healing time, I have found the door that we can all see to our higher self or consciousness. I am standing in the door frame. This is when the new journey truly begins.
