Does the Past Have a Hold On You?
When guilt arises it has the duty to inform you of your indiscretions. It is not meant as a punishment. It asks for you to make amends if you have caused harm to another and to make conscious improvements to stop detrimental behaviors and create healthy ones that benefit all. Sometimes guilt is misplaced. It is placed "upon" you by others. Have you ever been "guilted?" Have you been called selfish for following your path and your desires? As long as you are truly being responsible in a healthy way to others and yourself, you have the right to live your dreams.
If you have been holding yourself back out of fear of lack in any form (love, abundance, security), life is compelling you to step out of the box of your own constraints. Are there emotions you have stifled or rejected? Emotions are powerful jolts that inform you of thoughts and patterns that lie under the surface of your consciousness. They will speak your frustrations, your pleasures and more importantly point the way to your desires. Ignoring them or shoving them under causes your soul to ache. Be conscious of your truth...the real truth. Don't fake it or downplay what is speaking inside of you. When you are in integrity with yourself a natural boundary forms that protects you from oppression. Joy arises in response to the stability of your inner self-worth.
