Good morning everyone and happy Thursday. During my guided meditations I help my clients release a array of negative emotions that we've held onto since childhood. Ones that have been reinforced by employers, partners and people in our lives who've come to mirror what we think we deserve and how we should feel.
An emotion that seems to come up again and again is guilt. We feel guilty about everything from our less than perfectly replicated Martha Stewart dinner presentation to the rain that fell during our child's soccer game. The truth is we are not Martha Stewart and control in the weather is completely out of our hands. Somewhere during the years of our childhood, guilt played a huge role for us and it started with questions of why. Why didn't you....how could you....what were you thinking....If only you didn't...this wouldn't have happened. IT IS ALL YOUR FAULT!
We may not have had an immediate answer but we had an immediate feeling that we did something wrong and were, here goes.....GUILTY! Hence guilt became part of our core, snuggling in making itself way too comfortable to ever want to leave.
Today's quote is, "The guilt we carry from each lifetime will continue to the next - use this time to release guilt - the most useless of emotions." Guilt really is the most useless of emotions. Think about it. It is a punishment that never ends. We rehash events in our lives, feel bad about the outcome and then feel guilty because we should have done something else.
STOP. You might not be competition for Martha Stewart but you made a fabulous meal for your family! The soccer game may have been rained out but you were there watching and getting soaked while cheering on your mini Pele.
Release guilt from your life knowing that you did your very best!
Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy
