“Energies are ours, to accept and release…” – Yolanda
Welcome to Freedom Friday! This week we explored our chakra energies to reveal and understand our truths, as well as open ourselves to self-acceptance. Today we are going to discuss how to release energies that no longer serve us by stepping out of denial.
The first thing we should reveal is why we would ever deny truth in the first place. Purpose. Everything we choose to do is done because we believe that it serves a purpose. Therefore, our starting point will be the purpose of denial.
When we deny truth, it is typically an attempt to avoid some form of hurt. Another reason we find ourselves in denial is that we believe we are protecting something or someone. We can even deny truth as a form of punishment. All of these elements are foundations of denial, but the actual root is fear. Yes, let’s be very clear…denial is rooted in fear.
· Give yourself a moment to recall something you have denied, and be honest with yourself about the reason/purpose of your denial.
· Keeping what you have denied in mind, consider the fear attached to your denial. Did it cause upset, such as feelings of guilt, anxiety, sadness, etc?
· Where did denial lead you?
The energy of denial lingers with us until we decide to honor the truth. The truth is the only way to release the burdens of denial, which can weigh quite heavily on our hearts. This is why we are prone to having a guilty conscience when we deny anything, or have such an adverse reaction when we find out truth was denied from us. We are designed to act in truth. Denial is taught. Why do children often find themselves in trouble? Because they have not been conditioned to denial yet, they are still in pure form…honest.
Today, let’s honor ourselves by releasing a burden. What are you denying that you simply need to admit to yourself? Standing in truth does not always require total exposure.
There are plenty of things we have a hard time accepting. Be kind to yourself…we are all a work in progress. Remember, when we are able to embrace and accept ourselves, we are more able to embrace and accept the truth and others.
Until next time…
Peace and Blessings!
