The perfect storm by definition is “a confluence of events that drastically aggravates a situation.” This term is used to describe severe storms in our weather, but it perfectly describes our own life circumstances when we have failed to resolve our emotional past issues. This is the life lesson that I have learned through my own life experiences.
Through our own emotional landscapes, we too have a confluence of events that is our “perfect storm” that will aggravate our life situations resulting in suffering and pain. For each of us, we have unresolved emotional issues from our past. We may have forced ourselves to live a “healthy life” currently, but inevitably we will encounter our perfect storm.
For some of us who have used avoidance and denial to live in our current lives, we may not even see this storm coming, and when it arrives, we may not even realize that we are in the mist of the storm full of destruction and chaos. We, however, begin to see that the perfect storm has blown our house down, and destroyed the very things we love in our lives.
By the time the perfect storm is in our lives, getting out of storm becomes a huge and difficult endeavor as we watch the life we have known be destroyed around us. The way to survive our perfect storm is to make peace with our past, and heal our emotional landscape so we no longer will be impacted as we will see this storm coming and evacuate to a safer place. Healing love and light. (Copyright 2014 Kundalini Spirit with All Rights Reserved)
Where boundaries lie,
I cannot see,
When reality and dreams collide.
While misty rain upon my face,
Takes me to another place.
Into the wildness of my mind,
Where I lose myself.
To unveil another life,
I could not see,
All the possibilities.
Into the inner realm of my being,
Where I meet my soul I again.

The concept of letting go has eluded me for most of my life. I hang onto everything forever. I have come to realize why I hang onto everything forever, and it is the part of me that is wounded that causes me to hang onto hurt and pain for so long. It is the part of me that wants to feel loved but did not receive it as a child. When we begin to heal that injured part of us by releasing all the bottled up pain and hurt, and by giving that love to ourselves, we are able to begin letting go of unhealthy relationships and situations in our current life. I use Emotional Release Practice found at this tab on my Blogsite Homepage in conjunction, most recently, with body work, yoga, art therapy, music therapy, and writing.
Through these methods of healing, I am learning to let go. What I have experienced about letting go is that it comes in gradual stages. When we begin to truly let go, it is letting go of our own desires of outcomes. For me, it is my desire to reunite with my parents as a happy family. In reality, this cannot be and my desires are merely an illusion that I must give up in order to end my own suffering and disappointments. Our refusal to let go of our past will cause our present life with others to be filled with the same suffering and disappointments.
The beauty of these methods is that true healing occurs, and we don’t need anger, resentment, or hate to force us to let go. The process is very natural and letting go becomes more and more effortless. May you let go of things not meant for you. (Copyright 2014 Kundlini Spirit with All Rights Reserved)
