As I made my green smoothie this morning, right after coming back from my one hour walk, I had a very profound revelation.
Before I tell you what it was I want to tell you a story...
Over the past year I have gained some weight on my body. Two years ago I had released a tremendous amount of physical weight right after I had released my marriage in my heart and spirit. You see two years ago, I had left the marriage in my heart and mind, my stuff was packed and I was just waiting for God to show me where to go. Then my husband came back, forcibly so, because he had lost his job and asked me not to leave.
I realized this morning that over the past year, not only had I gained weight in my body but I have been carrying a tremendous amount of weight in my emotions, my heart and in my spirit because I have felt trapped in an unhappy, weighted and emotionally disturbing marriage.
This marriage I dubbed my "last marriage", in number was my second. I made a commitment to myself at the beginning of this marriage that "failure was not an option". I understood this relationship on a soul level, however this did not always make it easy to bear. I had to truthfully admit that the only reason that this marriage lasted as long as it did was because my soon to be ex spent most of the marriage working overseas.
During his absences, my mind, emotions and spirit were more free. That heavy energy was not around and I didn't have to deal with all the negativity, attitude and emotional discomfort. I freely worked out and had a healthy mindset... I ate right and mostly felt good all the time. My mind was free, my spirit was free and my heart was free.
Relationships can be our greatest source of joy but they can also be our greatest source of turmoil. Often we allow ourselves to feel trapped in relationships that aren't working because we fear making a change. The source of this fear can be many things...
So many fears, so many thoughts, so many worries...and this fear manifests itself in the form of "weight".
At the end of the day though, we need to ask ourselves a question and be honest with ourself...
What do I deserve?
When I confronted myself with this question a little over a month ago, my answer to myself was...
"I deserve to live the life I know I was born to live. I deserve to feel better, be better, have better and do better and I CAN!"
I made a decision to choose me and I decided to release the weight... the emotional weight, the mental weight, the spiritual weight and the physical weight. I decided to walk away from what was weighing me down, the source of which was the marriage, and you know what followed?
A true releasing of all the weights in my life!
Weight is not just physical... it can manifest emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Remember that at any time, we have the power and can give ourself permission to release anything that weighs us down, hold us back or hinders us from being all that we were born to be.
What weights are you carrying that are becoming too heavy for you?
Relationship, Emotional, Mental or Spiritual weights?
A successful relationship with another person takes the participation and cooperation of all parties involved. A successful relationship with someone else can never take place however, if you don't understand how to have a successful connection with yourself. You are the very first person that you will ever have a relationship with. What does your relationship with yourself look like?
I understand, there are times when we don't want anyone to know what we are dealing with, but we know that we would love to have some clarity on what we need to do. Truthfully, the only thing that we can ever control is what is happening within ourself, yet we often put much focus on what everyone else outside of us is doing.
Do you feel that you need some help where you are in your life and relationships today? Do you need help shedding some weight?
