This week has been a week of learning about honouring… Honouring those supressed emotions, past lives, blocks etc.
It started with an amazing session with a lady that taught me to feel the emotion wanting to burst out of my body and say hello to it, honour it and feel it rather than stuffing it down and allowing panic to take its place. Panic is a benefit of not allowing these to rise and be felt. It is what happens when you are not honouring yourself.
Amazing stuff, not only did I realise how much extra energy I was using to supress all these emotions and feelings in my body, but how much easier it was to actually honour them. Now it was hard work, totally emotionally wrenching and panic provoking, I am not going to sugar coat it but the relief and immense lightness I felt after it made it all worthwhile. It does help that I know I am ready to shed that particular shell and move forward so I didn’t try to hold onto anything that wanted to come up.
Today though after a chance conversation, I realised that honouring can be put to so many areas of our life.
Many of us do the release and let go method, often or during the full moon – which is all well and good and something that I do often myself, but many times when it is stuff we don’t really like or want to change, we come from a place of frustration, anger and so forth. I got to thinking though, what if we honoured and thanked those things before safely saying it was ok to let go of now. Would it make it easier to do this? Would it not feel like it was being forcibly ripped from ourselves, which means it tries and hangs on for dear life.
If you are trying to release blocks from your past lives. Honour that life that gave you the block. Have a little honouring ceremony for your old life, people that were in that life and thank it and honour it and then surrender to it. Don’t get bogged down in the nitty gritty details, that is the human ego side of us that feels the need to do that – your soul knows what it needs to do, and by surrendering to it, it can let go of what it needs to without trying to listen to direction from you.
Even in everyday life – work, friends, family, general life – the list could go on. Rather than coming from a place of wanting things to change, or situations annoying you, try honouring it instead. See it as a way of learning something, as a way for your soul to grow and evolve.
By honouring you are putting good intentions out into the universe. You are coming from a positive love space. By doing it this way, you are allowing your soul and ego to know it is ok and safe to release this and move forward. It is honouring that even in hard times, there is a positive to be learnt.
Till next time… keep walking your spiritual path xx
