Lingering Limps

Morning Meds 1 12 23

Emotional pains don’t heal in the same matter as physical challenges.

When a pulled hamstring has recovered the pain is gone and you no longer limp.

When we think back to the incident, we remember the pain with less intensity.

Emotional hurts differ, each time they are remembered they are reborn, and we are affected in the same way.

Our responds to our inevitable visits can become a pattern of response behaviors, sort of an emotional limp.

It is not bad, just a part of the healing process just like favoring a sore leg.

The healing of an emotional hurt requires time and self-love and acceptance of our state of healing.

We can tell when we are starting to heal when we realize that we are revisiting the hurt less often and we linger less.

The real healing is when we realize that after we leave, we no longer respond in the same pattern as we did before, and we begin to lose our emotional limp.

My wife Cheryl and I live in St. Joseph, Missouri. She is retired and watches three of our 12 grandchildren and 1 greatgrandchild. I work as a maintenance man at Highland Community College in Highland, Kansas. I have a BA in Art with an emphasis in ceramics. I am a second degree Reiki practitioner and BQH (Beyond Quantum Healing) practitioner. I started writing spiritual related posts in 2018 and started sharing them on a few different Facebook sites. This site is to consolidate and re-share them. It is also to share short stories based on images seen while in meditation. My hopes are that it will inspire others to use the powerful tool of visualisation to enhance their spiritual journey. Thank you.
