I have been drawn to write this because it will resonate within the hearts of some of you who read it...
My spiritual journey has accelerated this past year and although I’m very much enjoying being what I class as “The New Me”, it has by no means been an easy path to take. Many aspects of myself have been highlighted to me in order for me to accept them and release them so that I may be healed at a deeper level. Today’s lesson was Guilt.
With the beauty of my awareness of The Law of Attraction, I was able to see how over the last few days I had been attracting all manner of people and situations, even TV programmes, which highlighted to me the Guilt I had been carrying around inside me for a long time. I had even projected my Guilt onto my husband and believed he would not really accept the new spiritual Me, as I was not the same woman he had married 5 years ago. When I discussed this with him he helped me face up to the truth - that I was only in conflict with myself.
I felt guilty that since embarking on my spiritual journey all opportunities and offers of work had evaded me (by work, I mean that we all feel obliged to do in order to pay for the roof over our heads, the material stuff and the Tax Man). Everything I tried did not succeed; all adverts, letters of application and interviews all lead to nowhere. I felt guilty for not contributing financially to the household and guilty for not conforming to society’s condition that all people should work if they are able to. Yet the conflict lay within me, for I knew at a deeper level, that somehow, I would not be going back to what society (and my family) class as “work”, for I have had a greater calling. My “work” is what is known spiritually as “Light Work” but of course right now this is not earning me an income. And is it considered acceptable to earn money from Light Work anyway? Will my abundance come in other forms perhaps? Why do we place so much emphasis on success being measured in monetary terms? I know deep inside that I am not here in this lifetime to sit behind a desk pushing papers from 9 till 5 every day, in fact it would simply be soul destroying for me to even attempt this anymore.
I intuitively knew that this Guilt had manifested as tension and pain within my neck and shoulders. I was carrying this burden around with me every day and it was incredibly heavy! I felt compelled to release it and I knew that once I did, I would become stronger and more confident in my life. I had to empower myself...
I proceeded to sit down and write out a list of all the things I was feeling guilty about. To my surprise the list was much longer than I had first imagined and as I wrote each line the tears streamed down my cheeks as I was beginning to release the surge of emotion inside me. At the end of my list I wrote a message to myself and to the Universe, which read:
“I now acknowledge you Guilt, I now accept you Guilt and I now release you Guilt, back to Source to be transmuted and then returned to me as Love in my heart.”
I then did a very powerful act, I took the paper outside and set light to it. As I watched it burn and the wisps of smoke rise up, I felt the Guilt being released from within me and I imagined it floating up into the sky. Nothing but a scattering of ashes was left of my Guilt and I knew that they too would disappear into Mother Earth beneath my feet. I was FREE!
I then allowed myself some time to do a beautiful healing meditation with the Angels. I know that I have done a very powerful deed today and I also know it will take a few days for my mind and body to assimilate what has happened but my spirit already feels the joy of this Freedom.
Love and Light to you all.
