Allowing the light to touch our dark places

Painful experiences have a beautiful way of opening us. I have found that when I feel some intense negative emotion and allow myself to really feel it deeply, compassion for myself rises from within. I open more widely to Source and to the goodness it is always flowing to me. Miracles happen.

Allowing myself to feel negative emotion deeply creates the opportunity for light (the love from Source) to enter those dark places and heal them.

I found an example, a note I had written about a year ago:

'Today, I received a bill in the mail for a large and unexpected amount, the result of a decision I made a couple of weeks ago. I immediately felt negative emotion about it (mostly to the tune of 'why the hell did I make that decision?') and money worries.

I sat down to meditate and quiet my mind because the negative emotion felt like hell. As I began to have some lighter thoughts about it, I suddenly could feel Source kissing my face with the most tender, sweet love I have ever experienced. There was so much contained in that kiss that I continued to tune into the vibration. In doing so, I knew that I had been loved in every single moment of my existence with this deep, sweet, limitless love, no matter what I was doing in the moment. Judgement does not exist and it never has. Source has never and will never deviate from its abject, beautiful, pure love of us. I have decided to join in and see myself that way also.

I am going to write that cheque. I will write a huge 'thank you' on the envelope, too. It will be the most joyful payment I have ever made. They gave me the most beautiful gift when they sent it to me: the chance to focus on and feel the pure unconditional love Source has always had for me (and all of us). And my own personal decision to love myself like that, no matter what.'

  1. Bingo! The delicious discovery that 'negative' emotion is the key to personal growth aka expanded consciousness. I've been getting heaps lately :D and the decision to stand aside and watch is becoming automatic. Goodbye, hopeless struggle. All is well.

    Thanks for being there, Christine.

  2. Wonderful, Leah! Thanks so much for sharing. xx Christine
