I know that every relationship and circumstance in my life can be used by my Inner Wisdom to teach me where I am at in my healing process. But, what is it that needs to be healed? Well, I know for a fact that I still hold many false ideas and beliefs about myself and the world in general.
I realize that I identify with the body as if I am a body and not that I have a body. I still have fears that I need to address, process and release because they are based on lies. I know that Love, the eternal love that doesn't change, is the answer to each and every seeming problem. In A Course in Miracles it states clearly that there is only one problem.....and one solution. Basic, right? And what is that one solution to all my problems???
Knowing who I am in truth. Every time I remember to identify as a Child of God, created by Love, having all of God's attributes, and I feel it and hold it in my awareness consistently, something of the old drops away. I realize that I am one with my Creator, that I am not separate from Him at all. Those old beliefs I've held on to for so long, such as unworthiness, fear, guilt, shame, defensiveness, and not being enough as I am, are not true of me. Or of anyone. They all stem from believing we have done something terribly wrong....at a very deep level.
So far, knowing this truth and being it is still in the process of becoming one in the same. I forget, I fail, I fear, I defend, I doubt. But I am aware! When these false beliefs show up, I use the tools I have learned: I affirm I am not guilty, that I am eternally loved, that I don't need to defend myself because I am whole. I use forgiveness, which is a practice of seeing everything from a spiritual standpoint, not an ego one.
Along with affirming these truths about everyone, I find that writing about this in my journal, reading on it everyday and listening to other spiritual teachers strengthens me to be and act from this true place in me.
