Bury the past and stop letting it control your today and tomorrows. Constantly scratching old wounds, should have done this or that, could have done that and all the other negative self talk will not solve anything. Focus on what you can do today and prepare for tomorrow. Let the old wounds heal and walk on the petals of life, instead of the thorns.
You cannot change the past. All you can do is change the way you allow the past to affect your present and your future.
Worrying about what you should have done years ago that may have allowed you to avoid what you’re going through today, is a pointless exercise in self-criticism. We all have things we wish we could have done, or changed. But dwelling on the past keeps you struggling in the past energy and allowing it to constantly exist in the now.
Stop it! Leave the past perceived mistakes in the past where they belong. Close your eyes and visualize yourself packing all the old criticisms into a crate. Put the energy of the mistakes in there along with the memories they generated. Then see yourself burying them deep into the ground and cover them up. Allow the cool energy of Mother Earth to sooth their ills and put their ‘souls’ to rest.
Now let them go. Don’t put a marker over their resting place. Don’t make note of where you left them. Simply see them at peace and walk away never to look back. Then turn your sight to the bright future that lays before you. See your path basked in sunlight, peace and abundance. See your path in the setting that brings you the greatest peace and self empowerment. Even if you look at today’s card, you can see the faeries looking at a brighter future. All they need do is step off the thorns and onto the petals. You can do this too.
You can, because you are One with the Divine Consciousness in Mind, Body and Spirit.
You are at peace and take your first step onto the path of a brighter and abundant future.
And so it is.
