In the places in our lives where we are holding on, where we are unwilling to give up, where we are fighting to maintain the illusion of control, we unconsciously, or sometimes consciously put up an emotional shield to guard ourselves against fear or pain. It binds us to the pat and keeps us mired in the circumstances that we most dislike. Resistance to the truth about our lives denies us the ability to move forward with our lives; what we resist persists.
Sometimes we go on automatic pilot
Sometimes unresolved guilt and shame , feelings we need to release and heal, get in the way of who our soul wants to be. These feelings don’t magically appear, sometimes we become defensive, people may not be able to understand us or know what we mean. What we are really doing is defending ourselves, and we can’t find our way back home.
The lessons and the drama
Confronting the way fear influences our every move we are able to see how we are only trying to avoid embarrassment and shame. Despite emphatic promises to ourselves, we are afraid people will look too closely.
When people walk away from you let them walk
As you surrender and let go of the people you are holding on to, new people, inspiring people who see your greatness, will show up in your life. When you learn to trust life, and know that you are worthy, life will deliver treasures beyond your imagination. Courage and confidence will remain with you the rest of your life.
