What's interesting in life is how often people show up in our lives to teach us about ourselves. When we get upset at someone and get tempted to make our problems about them we give away our power.
This weekend's training taught me that when I am triggered, it has NOTHING to do with that person. It's a wound within myself that isn't healed yet. So.. I go deep within myself and do some investigation into what is it that triggered those feelings of fear, lonliness and pain? As I go searching, I find times in my life that I have been judgemental towards others which really intern is a reflection of my own judgements of myself. I can't change what I don't acknowledge and until I am ready to take a closer look at these deeper feelings within myself am I able to then have the freedom to make certain choices. It's beautiful. I can't say that it is without pain because pain is inevidable but suffering is a choice.
Each day I seem to get stronger and stronger in standing for health. Not just for my own personal body but also for my mind. It's a journey not a destination it takes work. In order to truly be free from bondage I have learned it takes turning things over to God and allowing him to do for me what I am unable to do with myself.
