I usually pride myself on being aware of what is uncomfortable in my life and releasing the person, thought, old belief or situation that created that discomfort. I’ve worked hard and done my homework on this awareness…or so I thought!
Recently I was caught in a new helping relationship that turned into a more draining situation for me. I felt the discomfort, the knot in my stomach, but ignored it saying that I was being compassionate and helpful to this person. Here’s another place where I did not pay attention to the cord that was becoming attached to me for the benefit of the other person.
Uncomfortable relationships which are unbalanced, emotionally draining, pulling you into something without consent are not healthy. I felt the dis-ease. Relationships should not be out of obligation but out of love, joy and compassion.
It became important to my own physical, emotional and spiritual health to not only sever the relationship, but to cut the cord that was attached to me. Severing the relationship took a phone call, but cutting the cord was done in meditation. I could feel the ache of the attachment just below the breast bone at the stomach. I visualized it, saw it, and detached it while breathing and setting the intention of freedom and everything working out for the highest good of all. And then healing can take place.
Was it difficult to do? Yes! But, my choice was to be loving and compassionate to me.
Will it happen again? Probably! But in awareness, I know I have a choice. And having a choice leaves me empowered. That’s why my motto is:
Helping you find the ACE in the Deck of Life: Awareness, Choice, Empowerment
And now I just have to practice what I preach as my Nana used to say!!
