What does it mean- to dig deep to heal?
In essence it’s to self reflect, to discover the elusive and deep subconscious thoughts and beliefs that can block us, to understand them in order to release them. It quite often involves pain to gain self awareness and in turn to allow forgiveness for yourself & others.
But what if those thoughts and beliefs are so painful, that every time you dig your are reliving the very things that make you suffer. At some point you have to be honest with yourself about how much time and energy you spend digging.
You have a choice about how to recover and release. Keep digging and reliving, or you can put it all in a virtual waste bin and move forward without having a full understanding of the what & why’s of your past - accept, let it go, stop holding onto it, stop over analysing, stop giving it space and energy, cut it off, suffocate it before it suffocates you.
Make it history.
There are plenty of healthy ways to then release without having to totally re-live past pain. Crying, hugging, therapy, counselling, dancing, walking, running, laughing, meditating, reiki.
All these start with you making a conscious choice to change the way you feel. And do that you must realise that you are in control of your 'here and now', that you have the power within to unlock your emotions and to let go of past trauma without replaying them. Yes you may need help in getting there. Try a number of different things to see what works for you.
Detach from what destroys you.
Use your energy and time for positive change rather than replaying past pain.
