You know when you just haven't got over something and people say 'get over it' as if you are a bit crazy, a bit of a drama queen or just a pain in the butt?
And when you just feel like things are getting 'on top of you' - there is nothing there - but you feel weighed down and struggle to get anything done because it just feels too hard?
Well sometimes the reason why you can't 'get over' something is because it's all over you. Actually - even though you can't see it - you are carrying it.
Life sticks to us.
Picture a field of long, long grass. Waving in the breeze, seed heads, dandelions, burrs, thistles and all sorts.
That's life. We have beauty, we have thistles, it's just how life is.
Now imagine you have a full length, fuzzy onesie on, a pair of velcro dungarees or woollen overalls.
Now get a visual idea of what that fuzzy pair of overalls would look once you have walked all the way to the other side of the field.
Covered in stuff isn't it? Can you resonate with this?
The human energy field can be just like this. Collecting the burrs, the seeds, the pollen and the other little sticky bits, getting loaded up with life.
Some people are self clearing, often we can 'brush things off' really easily, but if we are tired, overworked, burdened and not addressing our own needs, we can feel really awful.
Most people have burrs and fluff stuck to them without realising it.
Being aware of this helps you in many ways. Sometimes, in order to cope, we seek medication that we may not need, sometimes the stress builds up and up and relationships are damaged.
Keeping an eye on stress levels, running a little 'where am I at?' body check and clearing your own energy everyday helps life and You, to become unstuck.
You can do simple things like consciously breathing, running, walking, spending lots of time in fresh air, swimming, drinking lots of water, meditating, relaxing, and practicing affirmations - take extra special care with the words (and thoughts) you use every day.
Sometimes when things are really stuck, a session is needed.
In my work I often see people who have been 'carrying' something for so long it is almost embedded in them. They need help to get it out. Sometimes they are ready and sometimes not so ready, perhaps they are convinced, by guilt, that they should carry it, punish themselves and have a terrible life because of something they have done. Heaviness can be caused by blame, shame, a perceived 'wrong choice' or by hurt they have caused someone else, a broken heart when someone left, and words left unspoken when someone passed away. Heaviness, without a doubt, blocks your enjoyment of life.
The readiness can be worked on and these things can all be released, - even the feelings of guilt can be washed away too. Innocence is always within you, even when you've been through the worst experiences and reclaiming yourself, stepping into your personal power is an awesome thing to do.
It's time for all of us to say yes to freedom, and releasing yourself is a step towards making your life, and your world more of a garden - a better, more peaceful place to be.
