Healing the Wounds

 

“Children show scars like medals. Lovers use them as a secrets to reveal. A scar is what happens when the word is made flesh.”
― Leonard Cohen

 

His emotional wounds called to me. They were so sharp and so painful that I had to look for myself. He had never felt special enough to anyone and asked for a space in my heart. I felt that wound myself so I tried to give it to him. Then I realized that the reason I felt his wound was because I had the same one. I wanted to matter, to have weight for someone. If I mattered to but one person than I would feel more worth in myself.
Is a weight what I wanted to be to anyone tho? Something that would hold them or myself down. Far better to be a balloon, something that would lift the spirits and add buoyancy. I could only do that by healing that part that needed to matter to anyone including myself.
How do you heal a wound tho? The first step is to admit that it exists not so much as an object of aversion but as something to deal with. Then can come treatments of affirmations and healing but never denial. I catch myself with amusement when i see myself enter needy mode, not in a derisive way but in a way that acknowledges what I feel. I already ‘know’ all the whys of it. Why I needn’t feel that way and all the self-talk in the opposite direction yet I feel what I feel. Each time that is honoured but acknowledged for what it is, It becomes that much easier to do without.
One day I’ll have realized how long it has been since the last time I felt unworthy. The wound has healed leaving only the slightest of scars.
Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – November 20 2011

“The wound is the place where the Light enters you. ”
-Rumi

Many popular psychologists say that everyone on the planet exist as “walking wounded” to one extent or another. If that statement contains truth than this quote of Rumi’s becomes an amazingly hopeful one. We all have places where the light enters us. That resonates for me. Rumi’s statement also suggests where we can find the entrance of light place inside of us as well. I have long suspected that the areas in our life where we mess up the most tend to be the ones in which we can have our most intense successes. The place of our greatest wounds can also be the area of our lives in which we have the greatest chance  of healing others. Namaste
