A while ago, I read a comment from a nurse whose patients were in the last months of human life. What she heard over and over were stories that contained this awareness and sadness: “I wish I would have been true to who I knew I was when I had that chance.”
I, too, have experienced that sentiment, sometimes silencing my pleading and often sorrow-filled inner voice, choosing what others wanted or needed instead of what my inner spirit was whispering to me. Have you ever felt that way?
So, how do we move forward?
All those never addressed past sorrows or disappointments and the heartbreak hidden in dark buried parts of your psyche continue to cry out, to be set free from captivity, to be acknowledged, to become simply a powerless memory.
Perhaps, the overwhelming apprehension of stepping into that space, remembering times you felt less-than, or reliving experiences that shook you to the core or created a gaping hole in your heart, is terrifying.
But, your soul desires healing, restorative healing, not a temporary bandage or perfunctory pat on the back, genuine peace, found in the honest effort you choose to forge ahead to defeat the demons, fears, and sorrows of the past.
And, in this journey of your soul, you will be changed in miraculous ways that you may never have imagined possible, and those times and places will no longer hold power because you have tapped into your highest self, the you that God knows, the you that is pure love.
There’s so much I want to explore, understand and make peace with while I’m still on this planet racing around the sun. And, as time continues to pass swiftly in this limited reality, I often question my three-pound brain choices, and so my learning continues.
What do you desire?
What makes your heart sing?
What will you and your beautiful spirit do with the time you have left?
