Grief is a form of non-acceptance, and if you allow it to occur repeatedly, the feeling of grief can overwhelm your life. For there are many incidents and events that have occurred throughout your lifetime whose outcome may bring you sadness, but instead of allowing those depressive feelings to fall into the past, you may have chosen to hold onto those sad feelings in your present moment reality. You may have chosen on a conscious or sub-conscious level to store the energy of those feelings in various parts of your body. One common area that you may have stored your feelings of sadness, depression and grief may be in your lungs, or perhaps your liver. Maybe those feelings have grown larger in your present reality than they were initially in the past, because of your focused intent on re-living those memories over and over, and emotionally expanding your grief. This occurs when your focus and energy remain on what might have been, instead of detaching from the past, and accepting what is your reality right now in the present.
Much of what being healthy is all about concerns your ability to detach and release. If a life experience occurs, and you feel compelled to hold onto that experience and remember and re-live it over and over, and you are unable to find the strength or will power to detach and release from it, then those past pains are being authorized by your freewill , and these pains will continue to block your energy flow. These feelings will continue to injure you and bring you emotional and mental pain, which may certainly begin to manifest physically as you ground it into the present moment reality in the form of physical pain.
You may have decisions to make about releasing and detaching from areas of your life that are no longer beneficial for you. These activities are often substitutes for how you would really like to feel. Common methods that a human being may choose to alleviate pain without detaching sufficiently from the past and its injuries may be to choose an addictive, compulsive or obsessive behavior that masks the pain and the hurt and injured feelings that persist as you focus on the past without successfully detaching from it. Successful living in an Earth human reality requires that you spend more energy and focus on your present circumstance than your past circumstances. One emotional tool that is most effective in detaching and releasing from past injuries, sadness and heartache is the tool of forgiveness.
Forgiveness allows you to accept and bless an event or series of events in the most compassionate way possible, for both you and others involved, and releases negative emotional energies which may have congested in various of your chakras and parts of your physical body. These negative emotional energies may even still linger in the electromagnetic fields that surround and penetrate your body, and help to make up what you psychically might recognize as higher dimensional soul-related energies. For remember that you are a Soul inhabiting a human body to have a physical Earth lifetime. Remember that you are not your body but you are the Higher Mind and Soul that inhabits your earthly body in this present incarnation to gain life experiences and eternal wisdom, and mostly to share and experience love in its infinite variety of forms.
In order for the electromagnetic sub-atomic particles and waves of Light (which you are) to best function, you need to allow those energies to flow freely up and down your spinal column, which your chakras are aligned to, and for these electromagnetic and spiritual energies to best function, you need to allow a free flow of energy through this spinal system. As a metaphor to help you understand this, imagine eating a food (as in experiencing an event in the present which immediately begins to recede into the past) and then not allowing that food and its nourishment to past completely through your system. This would not be healthy to try and retain this food in your body; you obviously understand the need for your body to take in the nourishment from the food and allow what remains to be expelled and released out of your body. So, continuing with this metaphor, it is not healthy or production for you to experience a present moment hardship or negative experience and continue to hold that in your body. Your ability to expel, detach, forgive, release and pass that energy and negative experience from your system is vital to maintain your electromagnetic, spiritual life force in good health.
With this understanding, you realize that detachment, release and forgiveness are vital to your spiritual well-being. Addictions to substances that mask this retention of past painful events in your lifetime represent that you have not been successful yet in releasing, detaching and forgiving yourself and others involved in these painful memories, which may even extend into past lifetimes.
To spiritually clean your chakras, you may try to imagine and focus on the sparkling white light of the stars at the center of the galaxy, and imagine that light as conscious, loving, sparkling white light in the form of a pillar of light flowing up and down your spinal column, cleansing your chakras and releasing the hold that the past has on your mind. Allow for the clearing and soothing of that pain, instead of resorting to other freewill choices like partaking of addictive substances to mask pain, instead of curling up in depression, instead of hurting your physical body through neglect and self-abuse, instead of building up feelings of anger and vengeance, instead of choosing to hurt instead of healing in this present moment.
Always remember that the present is your most powerful moment, and it is where all reality occurs. If what has occurred is not emotionally beneficial for you and the rest of the world, then release it, detach from it, forgive it, and learn from it so that love, compassion and wisdom are what remain in your physical form, for after all, you remember that you are a spiritual being from outside of time having a physical lifetime. As you remember this wisdom and practice forgiveness and detach, and allow the negativity to be flushed from your Light Body field, you will enjoy greater and greater moments of happiness and benevolence in your present moment, which is where you really should be living instead of the past.
We of the angelic kingdom hope this message helps you once again to steer your intentions toward wholeness and love everlasting.
