Do You Hold Back Your Truth Just to Keep Peace? Here is What You Need to Know

Let me encourage you to be completely honest with yourself. First, I need to ask you this question. Do you avoid bringing up subjects you are concerned about in relationships to try to maintain peace? If your answer is yes, let’s stop and consider this question for a moment. Close your eyes and think about a time when you held back your emotions, comments, expressions, or your truth.

Now that you have a good example place one hand on your stomach and one on your heart. Keep that moment when you are held back in your mind as you breathe. What does holding back the issues you had on your mind cause you to feel inside? Can you feel the impact of the emotion or the disturbed feelings within yourself?

Holding back your ideas, comments, emotions, honesty, and truth can deeply harm your mind and body. Consider these questions. What are you afraid of, and what will happen if you express to someone what you honestly are thinking? Will your open expression cause a rift in your relationship or make someone angry at you? Do you imagine you will end up in tears or harming your own body as you absorb the impact of someone else’s responses?

As you answer the questions I have posed above, consider the control issues in your life. Are you are allowing inner torment to keep perceived peace? Energetically not speaking your truth will cause an imbalance in your throat, heart area, center, and even at the base of your spine. As an energy healer, I can tell you, holding back your true thoughts and emotions from someone whose response has conditioned you to do so will imbalance you in ways that can eventually cause damaging physical problems.

You were born with tenacity and courage. You have the power of an infinite spirit that resides within you. Everything that is encountered in your life can be handled efficiently and confidently when you connect with your Creator’s power inside of you. Nothing stops you! Knowing God is within you, and divine support also enfolds you on the outside can release you from tormenting issues you need to express but can’t find the courage in your human self.

Consider all of the things I have just presented to you and meditate for a few moments on what you can do to solve your holding patterns. Not everyone will be a safe harbor for you, but you can be that for yourself as you allow God to help you rise and be someone who walks in balance and truth!

Let’s rise!

“Infinite Spirit of God, release me into the hands of true courage. I am all I was created to be. I am the express image of my true Creator and comforter. Be my comforter and my compassion as I release my emotions, honesty, and truth, toward those who have offended me, held me back, oppressed me, or kept me from being my true self.”

Release yourself today and every day! YOU are a unique being who walks in high places with the One who will never let you down!

What’s Your Problem?

frustrated-womanNow there is a million dollar question, right? I guess I should entitle this post, “What Problem Are You Dealing With Now?” I can see your wheels turning. Maybe you are dealing with many problems. Welcome to my multi-tasking world! Let me interject some reality here. Everyone, I mean everyone, has problems! In fact, if you don’t have problems I would think you are an alien with some sort of super powers to overcome obstacles and leap tall buildings at a single bound. Bottom line, you can not escape them!

Yes, I know, they make life a pain. Life is supposed to be a pain. In fact, life is supposed to be one pain after another. Life is like labor pains; problems and labor pains. Before you click off and proclaim me too negative, think about this. Without problems there is no reason to solve anything. Can you hear me in this? If there is no reason to solve anything then there is no way to grow, no need for intuitive insight, no reason to find or seek peace. Have you ever had a problem resolved and were able to take that deep sigh of relief that says, “I did it”!

You see, without problems there is no celebration of success either. Interview any successful person and they will tell you about all of the problems they had to field on the way to where they are. So, get on your hiking boots because life is a mountain to climb. Yes, indeed, we can speak to that mountain, “Be thou removed” and if we have faith, it should vanish, right? I think it’s more honest to think that maybe the mountain can be removed by solving the issue concerning how to climb it! That is the only way muscle will be built and the only way we can ever celebrate our success!

I know, sometimes it feels like one thing after another hits us and we become sure there is a bulls eye on our behind that every problem seems to be attracted to. If this is how you ever feel than consider yourself fortunate! Sounds strange, I know. Think of it this way. The more issues you need to field and solve the more your faith has to be exercised, your brain has to be accessed, your emotions need to be tamed, and your skills need to be utilized.

How about if I interject the idea that having problems is a blessing and thinking of them that way will make them less daunting? If life were always easy and no problems were to ever come up, I think that would mean a person is probably dead or in a coma. Let’s embrace them, alright? Repeat after me:

“Problem, I am so blessed by you! Thank you for coming into my life, because now I am challenged to be an over comer. Thank you for showing me that I am alive! Yes, I treasure you and your lessen you came to teach me”!

Blessings upon you, AND the problems you face today!
