These painful memories, heavy feelings and old illnesses are clearing from our mental/emotional/physical bodies...they cannot exist with the current vibration you are holding, either intentionally or not (e.g. raising of the vibration of the planet/collective).
I was reminded of this yesterday when I was driving to a gig. I set my energy field before I got into the car, and while I was driving, an old memory popped to mind and an old feeling of anger. I heard myself say, "I hate you!" into the empty space.
That broke the vibrational free fall. I was able to become the observer again (vs. caught up in the past) and consciously release the old memory and associated feelings down my grounding cord, re-set to the vibration I wanted, and observe other thoughts/emotions that were coming into the light for clearing.
Visually, I was reminded these energies cannot coexist with the vibration I was setting myself at. They were moving slowly out of my field like dark ink blobs, coming from various parts of my body/field. I was able to assist the energy moving along, and thank the people/situations/emotions for the lessons. A part of me was surprised at some of the old resentments surfacing, but it was a neutral surprise. If I started to judge myself for them, I would have fallen right out of the vibration I was holding.
There's definitely been times I got lost in the memory/feelings and lost e.g. an hour of my life, or fallen into judgment of myself or others, both things which took me much longer to get back out of.
I've found that when you recognize what is surfacing is what's clearing and that's all (whether it be an old memory, painful emotions or a physical ailment)...it's easier to just observe it and let it go without judgment (keys for easier/swift release).
Originally when I got the concept for this blogpost, I thought I was going to come out with a list 1-2-3 of things one could do...
But what I'm inspired to write down is simply this...
Next step for those who feel inclined:
I encourage you to ask in one of your meditation sessions for insight on how you can process the old stuff that comes up for clearing with ease and grace.
Would love to here the tools you get in the comments below!
