Let’s get into some raw and real spiritual talk about guilt and the truth of how it negatively consumes you. In order for you to move on and heal you need to find a way to let go and forgive yourself. You see when we are preoccupied by the past it consumes us, it zaps our energy so that we are not fully present in the here and now which decreases our happiness.
FACT: you cannot change the past. All the guilt and shame, all the blaming and wallowing in it, all the wishing and praying it was different… none of that will change what the past was. Anyone who has been keeping up with my stories and teachings knows that nothing about my childhood was easy or pleasant. I carried the burden of my stories in my heart and in the choices I made as a young adult that were very damaging. The thing healing never really end we all heal all the time from something or the other on all different scales, it’s never really over. The work I do with my clients as a healer is the work I continue to do with myself. And yes the healing process becomes easier, smoother and comes more quickly as we get really good at it.
I have been there. I have broken down by my past and felt actually broken inside me but once I felt the relief from spiritual healing, there was no turning back to the darkness of my pain. I found my answer and my guidance and you can too.
The Universe has your back.
The Universe Loves you.
The Universe is there for you with all its helpers.
The Universe is you and you are it.
Once you feel better, you know better and so you do better.
Guilt is a pointless burden and once you know that it’s a little easier to accept the past for what it was and move forward, leaving the baggage behind. You will find the beginning of great peace, purpose and your passions can come to you.
So, how would you define “guilt?” Guilt is “a feeling of responsibility or remorse for some offense, crime, wrong, etc., whether real or imagined.”
Guilt, shame, secrecy and repression these all fall low on the scale of human energy vibrations, they are ingrained in the psyche and we all suffer with them. The really cool thing is that once you label it in yourself and identify where your feelings are coming from you can heal. And when you heal yourself you heal the world you live in.
Here are some guilt transformation tips to let go of the past, forgive yourself and bring you back for some healing:
Journaling Start by writing down your overwhelming thoughts and feelings and don’t hold back from the full expression of yourself. Ask yourself “How is guilt holding me back? Do I need to hold onto to these thoughts and feelings? How would my life be different if I let them go?”
It’s hard to forgive yourself and accept that you deserve it, but holding onto your guilt only creates pain. Seek help from a trained practitioner if you feel you cannot do it on your own.
Be Still and Accept. When you catch yourself judging yourself evaluate where that judgment is coming from. Is it really true? Ask Is it something someone told me that I decided to believe?
Meditation and yoga makes it easier to sit with these thoughts and questions; to observe, accept, and release guilt and to help focus on new positive beliefs and thoughts. If it’s something you heard then the guilt you have is a sacrifice you are making to not be who you really are.
Take responsibility: Stop rationalizing; stop applying “if, and, but, well you know you must…”Stop telling yourself stories that keep you stuck in the guilt. Catch yourself if you can and change the self talk to, “I will change. I can do better. I will do better. When I do, I will feel better about myself. I am healing.”
“Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything—anger, guilt, or possessions—we cannot be free.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh
I work with these concepts every single day of my personal and professional life and you can too. I went from being an empty person to a fully happy and purposed person and you can too.
You can change the course of your experience, from hate to love, from confusion to clarity and from being messed up from guilt to healing and having a purpose-filled life to call your own.
