Whatever the reason, many of us take great pains to avoid looking beneath the surface. The irony is that when we avoid facing ourselves we tend to behave unconsciously, from the default guidance of our lower selves. This makes us more likely to behave in a poor, foolish or wreckless manner.
We have several built-in mechanisms designed to alert us when we're off track in our lives. A few of the most common ones include:
- Disturbing dreams or sleep issues
- Addictions, obssessions and compulsions
- Weight issues and eating disorders
The hidden blessing in the most painful life experiences is that they force us to wake up, sweetheart, and take inventory of of what we've been doing or what we've been avoiding. And it's never too late to turn within.
Even if you're on your deathbed you can experience healing by going inside and making friends with who you really are. Your Higher Self, your Angels, and God still love you no matter what you've done. Even if you've given up on yourself, they will never give up on you.
