Core Wounds Revealed.
You may find yourself revisiting old wounds, despite all of the times you have cracked the code and (seemingly) dealt with the root of your pain…a new layer may be surfacing for you at this time.
Intensified energy shines a torch into the dark, to highlight the remaining debris of what has been cleared. You may find yourself immersed in the silt of repressed gunk that sits in your system.
Look around you. Many people are in the midst of their own version of this.
The binding of core wounds woven into us are in the midst of a steep and unforgiving unravelling.
For some: the experience is cataclysmic, in the inner and outer world.
For others - a force of nature that brings with it a purification that is swift and crisp. (Perhaps a combination of both!)
Tensions are high on a deeply personal experiential level - it is hard to hold others when you’re going through so much.
Be mindful not to get stuck in defensive response to other people’s drama.
You will take it personally.
You will have a relationship with it.
It will trigger you.
You will respond from your own trauma.
Take this opportunity to notice what resonates, and what emerges from your own core wound.
This is yours to work on, be mindful not to expect others to take ownership of what ails you - just as you are not responsible for another’s.
These pangs that rise up from the depths of your wounding pose as potentials…opportunities to learn.
The opportunity to intervene between old patterns and your future…offering you a CHOICE to do something different. To do better, be better.
Better than what the core wounds have had you believing you’d ever have the capacity to be.
Creating safety for your tender heart, rather than seeking it externally as you’ve been taught you had to.
More powerful than the stories that left you powerless.
You are not your wound. History does not have to repeat itself.
Bring yourself back to heart, before you respond.
Things can be vastly different…if you take the time to come back to love. It may take more time, sure. Making new ways to relate: requires and deserves that space.
The energy moving through takes old stories of Victimhood…and attempts to run this outdated show out of town.
Chose to own your mistakes, grow from the mistakes of others, and rewire the response systems that you learned when you were young…in whatever ways resonate for you.
Chose to surrender to the flow of what you can’t control, take charge of the things you can - and make a stand to be courageously trusting of the unfolding.
Detach yourself from a particular fairy tale outcome.
But don’t give up on hope, dreams, wishes and magic.
Don’t give up on yourself.
No one else can heal your wounds FOR you.
No one else is going to ride in on a white stallion to save you from your demons.
No one else can dig you out of the situation you’re currently in.
You are the answer. You have always and will always be the answer, and the prayer.
You will save your fucking self.
Those left to stand beside you on top of the mountain peak will surely have earned the flag they lay into the soil at your feet.
Those beside you will join forces with you, having met their own wounds, alone in the dark - but beside you.
Together you forge new beginnings and leave the old skins and armour in the pit below. You won’t need them anymore.
And if you find yourself alone at the peak, know too that this is your path - and the best is yet to come. See the horizon as a brand new day, the sun shines upon you as you embark on the next cycle.
You may not like what transpires, but it will most certainly be what you need.
