Signs You Are Healing

Many people who start down their spiritual path expect it to be fun and positive, and believe that pain and difficulty are signs that it is not working. This is not the case.

A fun, exciting, positive beginning is many times a powerful sign that you are on the right path, as is taught in the book The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. After this realization, there will be difficulties and all the fears that you have been running away from will come back. You have to understand that the path to inner peace and self-transformation is supposed to be so difficult at times that you want to cry, give up, turn around, run away, numb yourself with substances (food included) and certain relationships. DON'T. Don't listen. Of course it will seem impossible to not surrender to the negative patterns as usual, but remember that you are stronger than that which you believe has you in shackles. You can be fully free!

Of course, this path is way more rewarding than staying put with your difficulties. Once you gain momentum, it's only easy and rewarding to progress on your life path by constantly letting go. How ironic! It becomes easier to face fears and break their death grip than to stay put. Ha! But that's life.


Good luck ♥
