Hurt

Throughout our lives, we have felt and experienced hurt ... and yes, this hurt is our perception ...

BUT ...

We have not been allowed to express how we feel ... we have been told not to be selfish ... people have looked at us as much as to say ... what are you going on about ...

we have all been given advice from healers and therapists as to what we should do ... and how we should do it ... with should being the operative word ...

we have been given answers that suit mothers, fathers, doctors, lawyers, teachers, priests ... etc

all of which avoid the subject of the hurt which has been buried down deep underneath more layers of hurt ....

WHY ...

Our individual feelings of hurt are very real to each of us ... and I will not make it wrong for anyone to say they are hurting ...

Only when each one of us is allowed to say ... yes, my body hurts ...
can we go down underneath the hurt to find out why ...

Hurts come from a number of sources ...
but each is very real to each of us in our experience ...

we can NOT heal from the hurt if we do not allow that the hurt exists ...
because only then is it possible to go beneath the hurt and understand why the hurt in the first place ...

It may not even be your hurt ... It can be something that you have taken on from someone else ... it may be a genetic memory ...

BUT you are experiencing hurt in your body ... and HURT is a symptom ... PAIN is a symptom.

Now ... we can wallow in the pain and the hurt ...

or we can look at pain and hurt and say to ourselves ...

What are the pain and hurt symptomatic of ...
What fear, grief, anger, resentment
do I have locked down in my body
that is causing me to separate me from the harmonic flow of energy
that is my true expression ...

The acknowledgment of hurt hides a grief ...
and under that there is a deeper grief ...
and underneath that another hurt ... another grief ...

Will you wallow in the grief ...
Will you deny the grief ...

or will you look at the lessons that each layer of grief brings ... than is under each layer of hurt ...

Can each change your perception and accept the possibility that from this moment on ... (yes the hurt is real)

BUT

The hurt your body can start to experience ... is the release of memories .. the untwisting of distortions ...

that what you are feeling is the remembering of how the hurt go there in the first place ... and not some new hurt ...

It is OK, here on this list, to release how the hurt got there in the first
place ... because, until you do so, until you acknowledge

That the CHILD in you was not heard ...

you will keep holding on to a restriction in the expression of your truth ... and that only makes the hurt worse ...

until you become old and twisted and distorted and crippled ... (and that's the easy way...)

The change in perception is to allow that for once ... you are not going to experience a new hurt ... but a remembering of how the hurt got there in the first place ...

and in that remembering ...

you are allowing a distortion of your truth ... essence ... expression ..
to rise to the surface for release ... so that underneath ... you may find that part of you which was always there

but which you were forced to deny
and then forget

that is the self judgement ...
that is the grief ...
that is what you have never been allowed to express ...

I, for one, understand this process ...

it's like learning to walk for the first time ...
first you gotta crawl ...
and you gotta hold on to something ...
and you might fall over a few times ..

but

as you have already learned,
you can walk unaided,
stand on your own two feet ...

So ... explore the possibilities ... for you cannot move anywhere if you are holding onto anything ... particularly the past ...

it's like for me ...

I couldn't explore my family backyard because my mother kept me in a harness firmly attached to the clothes line ... and when I finally remembered that ... I was able to release the pain of that harness from my chest, neck, back and diaphragm ... then my legs had to find out how to walk without having to be held back ... so my body had to find a new balance ...

   and each hurt I now experience ...
   is a joy ..
   because I know
   it is my body remembering
   its pathway to freedom
