KNOW Your True Self Series-”Healing Past Memories”{2}

Posted Oct 20 2010 12:00am
Last week when we started talking about Knowing our true self, we touched upon the first step to this knowing and that was - Being a Dreamer! If you haven’t read that article{the first part of this series} I suggest you read it too, so that you can truly and very simply start the process of Knowing your true  calling. Once we have realized our dreams and have started working on them consciously, automatically they tend to replace all the negatives in our lives with hope and positivity. A certain passion within us will come forth at the realization of our true dream.

This is the Second Part of the “KNOW Your True Self Series” of Articles. You will find more details of this life altering series at the end of this article.

Every man’s memory is his private literature. ~Aldous Huxley

The second step is healing our memories. All of us have a vault of memories, that in itself can be the material for many many bestselling books and movies! We all have had heartache & pain, happiness & serenity, peace & contentment in our past. Amazingly when our memories come forth, they come in waves-waves of either happiness or sadness. And many times these memories can bring up lots of pain too, which hinder your growth.

Good memories- The memories that make you happy, make you smile and make you want to relive that moment over and over again, each time making you happier and happier. Good memories help you regain your confidence, make you feel better about everything in you and around you.
Bad memories- The memories that make you un-happy and bring forth a very strong pain in the heart. You can’t help but cry..and usually you stay in this state for a whole day or week or even a  month. A bad memory is like a scar on your heart. The more you fidget(think) with the scar, the deeper and more painful it becomes. When you apply an ointment and leave the scar alone, the faster it heals.

Sometimes, its a smell, sometimes its just a color, sometimes its probably a date on the calendar….anything can spark a memory. Good or bad…memories are there and they can’t be undone. In-fact you being the star of all your memories, its hard to forget too. But, who says you have to forget. You should remember…its part of your healing process.
The bad memories though, are like scars on your heart and soul. If they come and bring you intense pain, sadness and leave you with an inability to function for a set period of time-you NEED to heal them! HOW?

Don’t be too daunted, its not difficult and certainly not impossible. It just takes a bit of will power on your part.
Here are a few points you should remember and start working on. These will work like the ointments on those past scars and help them heal:

With the above two ways, you will be able to get over all those bad memories you have stored within you, which are literally a hindrance in your potential growth. When you let go of these bad memories, you make space within you for so much love, peace and positivity. Which in the grand scheme of living your authentic life and finding your true calling are milestones for knowing your true self.

The best part of this process is, you are now thinking positive thoughts. You are now making positive memories. In a few years from now, when you think back to this time of your life, you will have only good memories and will be free of those haunting bad memories. I’m not saying you wont have any bad experiences in life..ofcourse you will, but your internal positive health will help you bounce back faster. It will make you stronger.

So, are you ready to fill your life with positivity and Know your truest self?
Take action NOW! Its all in YOU and only you.
