Thy Wounded Self

Your path is long
With rocks and stones
But believe in yourself
For you are perfect in all ways.

Dear One, the journey here upon this plane is not always an easy one for you. There are obstacles present in your path as you move forward. And you may stumble upon these as you find your way. Worry not about that part of yourself who makes itself known during these times. Though it may live more in the shadows, it is still a part of your light. It is still a part of the Divine. This part of yourself completes you in a way you may not yet understand.

We talk of the wounded self. That part of you which emerges in times of stress, of growth, of change. Do not try to run from this part of yourself, for it has a purpose and that purpose is to show you a way to be at one with others on their own journeys. Surrender to this part of yourself. Accept it with open arms and allow it to teach you the lessons you need to learn this day. For it is all a part of the journey. The journey home to us.

You are a being of light and love. We have said this before. But you also exist in a physical plane in order to learn, to grow in an experiential manner. This was your choice as you were adventurous enough to heed the call and take the ride here upon this plane. But in order to grow, there is a need for you to accept yourself as you are, in your entirety. And that includes that part of you which remembers and holds close the wounds felt along the way. That is not to say that you should allow those wounds to fester and grow. But to acknowledge their presence, give gratitude for the lessons they teach you. Allow them to lead you closer to expressing compassion for others who are in battle with their darker side.

Embrace all of who you are and judge not that which you do not perceive as positive. For each and every one of you has many layers of which to discover upon this path you walk. When you come across the wounded layer, kiss it, love it and accept it as a part of your entire being. For how could you grow otherwise, without the challenges, the wounds inflicted upon you along the way? Remember that it is through these wounds that the light shines the brightest.

Do not worry that you have fallen off your path at these times. For in truth, you have taken a great leap forward as you acknowledge and move through this layer of you. Embrace yourself, all of you. Nurture yourself, all parts of you. And give yourself time to sit with this part of you. Work with it and give gratitude for the lessons it teaches you. Then raise your head and continue on your path. Do not doubt yourself, Dear One.

You are a Divine being on a physical adventure.
And we are here with you every step of the way.
Be at peace with who you are in totality.
For you are light and love and One With All of Thee.

    This “pathway” of which you speak is littered with expectations, and the difficult times are when expectations are not met. Some will say, “I really have no expectations of you,” but when behavior breaks the norm, they are the ones who also say, “Well, really! I would never have thought he’d do something like that.” There are, of course, expectations we have for ourselves. Sometimes these expectations are slow to emerge because we’re consumed trying to meet the expectations of others. However, self-expectations are a part of life’s agenda, and most of us would like to be better than we are. Personally, the really dark places are when I’ve failed myself, often driven by fear or timidity. Regardless, your teacher correctly encourages us to receive these times as opportunities to be grateful for learning.

    Only in more senior years have I learned to “embrace” all that I am and to be grateful for all the pieces of my life’s mosaic. There are still stressful times, and certainly times of uncertainty, but I encounter them more wisely now. Best of all, I look forward with hope, knowing I’m loved, and feeling I am whole.
