For many of us, the shift to a different phase in life often brings not only a renewed sense of hope, but also a time of reflection. With new resolve comes the need for more clarity about our experiences along the path that lead us to our desire and willingness to change. Any time we decide to change we are openening up to heal our past so that we can overcome our fears of the future.
Regardless of the reason for change; whether it’d be away from co-dependency, addicitve behaviors, substance abuse, or simply an ego driven life for example, if we are honest with ourselves, we often discover that there is some repair work needed before we are able to move any great distance forward.
It's quite common to discover that our previous way of life was one during which we lived through conditioned beliefs, patterns and programs that were so significantly misaligned from who we truly are, that our past actions barely feel like it was us doing them. For the deeper inner healing these aspects of ourselves need to be reunited and integrated.
To overcome our fears of the unknown – we need to overcome our fears of our past.
