The one big reason people fail in healing is that they’re trying to get rid of their feelings and experiences instead of embracing them.
Embracing shame, self-hate, terror, guilt, frustration, anxiety, and more is not fun, and when we use spiritual surrender, we feel more vulnerable to those and other feelings and sensations.
But in surrendering, we are taking energy away from those feelings. In time, they run out of energy and disappear from our experiences, or they only have brief cameos in our lives. 🙂
When we try to get rid of them, we are strangely energizing these emotions and sensations. By giving them energy – the energy of our rejection and resistance – they are reinvigorated and continue to arise in our lives.
This resistance-reinvigoration can make many people feel stuck in endless healing circles for their whole lives.
