The following is written by Peter Peut:
The ability to "heal" completely and embrace a past experience is governed by the size of the ego. The larger the ego, the less likely a healing can take place. The ego's job is to protect us from everything "out there". Two ways it does this are the Aggressive/Defensive mode and the "Poor Me" or Victim mode. Both are designed to keep us safe from whatever is "out there". The ego keeps two 'files' on any experience. First there is the actual experience, there may be pain, fear etc. This file is the small one. AFTER the experience the ego builds a huge file: fear, hate, revenge, self-hate, blame etc.. Any time the experience revisits, the ego can add more junk to file number two. Instead of healing it can get worse.
If the experience (small file) itself is healed, the large, ego manufactured, file ceases to exist.
So, how to cut the ego down to size, so the actual experience can be healed. You have the answers from your soul writing on God "make sure you go within" - go to source as part of a healing.
A human exists on this planet in two worlds.
The first world is "out there" - the domain of the ego.
The second world is the inner world - connection to soul.
You can still live your daily life connected to soul - even when cooking dinner, kids fighting, hubby drinking beer watching TV.
The strength of the ego is directly proportional to the time spent in the outer world compared to the time spent going within. There is no need to do anything to the ego. It just readjusts itself to where you are focused - inner or outer.
Peter emailed this to me after we had a discussion on this topic. I think he sums up nicely what we need to do to heal past hurts, suffering and trapped emotions. Rather than re-hashing the “story” and “drama” around the events that caused us pain, just get in there and connect with the original feeling and heal that. The more we can connect with our soul and feel the peace and connection to source – the less time we will spend empowering our ego and "our stories" and the easier it will be to heal past hurts.
If you have experienced past hurts (grief, abuse, breakups, humiliation, fear etc) and don’t necessarily want to dig up all the past “stories”and “drama”, I can help with a gentle but effective energy healing session (in person or by distance) which can help with this process. By connecting with your Soul we create a safe peaceful place to connect with the trapped emotion and release it.
Once we have completed our journey with our past, then the soul connection can become stronger and we can start living with soul guidance and experience the joy and peace we have all longed for. There is beauty in our past experiences - the soul connection will help you find that.
I believe that knowing who we are at our unique soul level holds the key to living an authentic and joyful life. Once we know who we are, we can begin to BE who we are, and then BECOME who we were always destined to be.
