Reflecting between the LINES
By Lori Lines
I hear many questions from you along these lines, "if I allow myself to feel all the negative feelings from my past (lives) that have hurt me or made me feel stuck, won't I be lowering my vibration?"
Here's my take on it. Many of you hear, from the law of attraction community, messages to stay positive and keep your thoughts high! I think this talk creates the fear of doing things wrong when we are feeling sub-par. It creates the worry that if you ever have a negative thought that what you want won't materialize or be actualized. I think this is B.S. Nothing will keep you stuck longer than the act of worry caused by fear!
We are obviously striving to raise our vibrational frequencies so that we can be naturally more joyous, happy, and in love. It is unrealistic to think you can keep your thoughts high ALL THE TIME. We are here on Earth to experience her polarities: light/dark, love/fear, left/right, above/below, hard/soft, etc. so that we can appreciate and express gratitude for the love, the light, the joy, the happiness, those days when everything seems to flow in our favor.
We are here to learn how to merge these polarities.
Do not allow yourself to deny those parts of yourself. As an empath, it's painful to watch someone smile when they are hurting, to hear someone say they are doing great when you know they are struggling inside. To watch someone act in martyrdom. This is not authentic. We would not be given the ability to cry if we weren't meant to do that. We have not been given a voice if we weren't meant to communicate our soul truth at any given time. Giving yourself permission to express your pain ultimately removes the debris you've held on to and once it clears, you will be given clarity in your life like never before! It brings you back in to balance. It helps you to open your heart and to create from that positive space.
When I have given myself permission to FEEL, to release and purge, I've found levels of forgiveness, of myself and others who have hurt me, in ways I never thought I could. The result? True compassion for myself and others, a lightness, a spring-in-my-step.
Going deeper, once that level of compassion is realized, you can find the compassion for others and yourself when your perceptual filters begin to fall away and you realize how you have hurt them. This expanded perception allows you to see and to feel and to cry for the others you have wounded, perhaps without even knowing you had wounded them in the past. This gives you the opportunity for complete and ultimate forgiveness, thus, you have merged the polarities and you have risen to a higher vibrational frequency. You UNDERSTAND.
Still walking with you as we see the light on the other side emerging.
Peace out, Lori <3
