For years I had pushed these places away because of the people and memories associated with them. I had literally given my power away to these places.
On a total whim I decided it was time to face one of them. By pushing away a place because of a painful experience I had shut out the friendships I had with the other people there. It felt really really good to take my power back and reconnect with my old friends. In fact, it felt so good, I went from there to my old house. I have a lot of pain still around that place, and not only did I drive by the house (twice!) I stopped and visited with my old neighbor. I had been away for over two years.
I not only had pushed away the painful memories and the chaos that had taken place there following my divorce, but I had pushed away the loving hours I spent in my gardens, watching my son grow from a child into a young man, the dreams and aspirations I had. Everything I had created in the 10 years I lived there I pushed away. It felt really freeing to be there and to release all of it. I consciously took back my power and decided to launch forward in my life.
This past weekend was a full moon, lunar eclipse, and Easter. The energy was all about stepping into the next phase and releasing the past once and for all. It felt so good to release the fear and cut the power switch of the past. What have you done lately to launch yourself forward? I would love to hear from you in the comments below!
