Heartaches, Letting Go, and Moving Onward

Sometimes moving forward is the hardest thing that we can do because of so many changes in life. But life is full of changes. Heartaches, heartbreaks, and letting go are a huge part of what this life is about. All we can do is keep holding love, light, faith, and be in God’s presence. No matter what, forgive. It does not mean we have to remain in someone’s life who did the wrong things to us. What forgiveness is, is there is a release of bad energy from within us and from within our heart. Forgiveness is for us, ourselves, our hearts, and our well-being. It releases the one who did wrong to us, and allows them, to go on and experience what they need to in order to evolve themselves. Experience all of life, stay grounded, stay rooted in the foundation that you have. If your foundation is shaky then change the one that you have and make sure that you are on solid ground. Stay in God‘s presence, I am repeating that one because it’s the most important one ever. Embody the Spirit of God and embody your very soul and higher Spirit because when we do that we receive the best for ourselves and attract the best in our lives. Even more so we heal in places that we have so needed to heal so long.

What Are You Watering in Life?

It never ceases to amaze me how many lessons I learn from nature. Growing plants, flowers, and trees speak messages into my life every day I attend to them. The keyword is “attend.” Whatever I water grows, unless I overwater things. Some plants need more water than others. Depending on their needs, I adjust what I do for them.

Plants show visible keys as to what they want or need to grow effectively. When they begin to whither, I know they probably need more water than I am giving them. When they die, I have not given them what they need to grow and thrive.

It’s the same with every aspect of our lives. Our physical health will show a decline on the outside when we neglect our body’s needs. Our lives will speak louder than words when we are not attending to life’s garden. We will see a decline in the quality of life when we don’t feed critical areas the attending they need.

When I neglect my spiritual time, my faith withers, my heart becomes like hardened soil, and my happiness scale starts to show a decline. I’ve come to understand it is my responsibility to feed my life in areas that are suffering drought and nurture my own needs when I am feeling void. All processes in life require awareness; this is key. Anything we don’t keep our awareness focused upon will wither and die. To truly thrive in all areas of life, we need to ask ourselves what the most critical thing we must do right now to improve our lives.

Sometimes caring for our internal needs means some time away to reboot our systems. There are times we need to rest and recover from issues that passed through our lives we might have paid way too much attention to. This can drain our system faster than we care to admit. Sometimes we need to take action, or an area of our lives that we depend upon can die. The area can be of body, mind, or spirit. Those areas can also support us, like our job, business, or project we have our hearts set on.

Establishing roots and allowing our foundations to become firm in life’s soil will give us what we desire to maintain. Our outcome depends on the foundation and how much attention we have paid to create a firm one. If we do this in all areas of life we desire to maintain, then the winds and storms will not tear us down.

This, my dears, is the secret to success. We might cry out, squirm, or falter, but getting back into the routine of obtaining that stability and balance we need will calm the seas and allow us to field the storms. We have strength in focus, attention, awareness, and action. Care for all issues in life that are important to you by making sure you attend to things ahead of time before they show signs of neglect and wear.
