Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. Thank you. In today’s article I am going to continue to share my thoughts on Healing Beyond the Mind. In my experience, I found that knowledge could not do for me what identifying with other people could accomplish in my life. In my experience, I found that knowledge could not do for me what healing from damaged emotions could accomplish.
In my experience, as my damaged emotions began to thaw and heal, I found the courage to move beyond the shadows of my isolation and my feelings of alienation.
In my experience, I found that as I found the courage to move beyond the shadows of my isolation and my feelings of alienation I was able to begin to address my denial. In my experience, as I began to address my denial, I found the courage to admit my powerlessness. In my experience, by admitting my powerlessness, I found that I was able to move beyond the denial that I sought to defend for many years. In my experience, by moving beyond my denial, I found that I needed help to heal.
In my experience, by admitting my powerlessness and my denial I became willing to ask a power greater than myself to help me to heal me in my denial.
In my experience, I found that by asking for help to heal me in my denial I began to discover things about myself that had previously remained hidden from me. In my experience, I found that by being honest with myself, by examining my motives and the patterns of behavior(s) – as I interacted with other people and myself — I began to understand why I sought to defend my denial. In my experience, by examining my denial, I began to accept myself in ways that my denial kept hidden from me.
In my experience, as I began to accept myself in ways that my denial kept hidden from me, I found a new ability to trust. In my experience, by admitting to a loving God, to myself and to another human being the exact nature of my motives and behaviors, I found that I was able to begin to embrace once hidden parts of myself. In my experience, I found that I was able to embrace once hidden parts of myself, I grew in my ability to trust a loving God, other people, myself and the process.
Please read Part 4 of this article, which I will write and publish in the next several days. Thank you.
