I have been a practitioner of Australian Bush Flower Essences for many years and still forget what I know for myself, often until the very last moment when intuition knocks so loudly it can't be ignored for another moment ... thank goodness!
My dilemma ... surgery or no surgery ... do what I know best in blind faith or go under the knife as strongly advised by the medics. It was all compounded by the fact that I have said for years I'd never do it because my mother had the same op, never recovered and died of this very condition. Not an easy one to call! And I've seen other loved ones suffer too and I don't want my kids to experience that. So I took the remedy to bring clarity and help ease the stress of the confusion that was over riding my whole mind and body.
Freshwater Mangrove brings about the ability to release and heal mental prejudice. It is the remedy for those who have already made up their mind about something or someone without having actually experienced them. It helps disperses the seeds of intolerance that may have been sown generation after generation. It is very beneficial in those situations where the heart is closed as a result of mental prejudice and allows us to change our beliefs of what is possible. It plays an important role in opening us up to the awareness of other ways of doing and perceiving which are different from what we have done before.
I so needed this to help with my 'tunnel vision'.
It was time to let go and trust myself.
It was decision time.
I was hanging on so tightly I daren't relax for a moment which made it almost impossible to recognise new information. I was totally scrambled in my thinking.
"We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the life that is waiting for us " ~ Joseph Campbell
Letting go, changing direction doesn't necessarily equate to failure - it's really a matter of perception - What have you experienced, learned, received along the way? How will this made you grow?
"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be" ~ Lao Tzo
Of course we have to make sure you're letting go for the right reasons
We have to give ourselves permission to feel sad, disappointed ... grieve if necessary.
Sometimes it might just be about needing a bit of space. Finding out what we don't want can confirm what we do actually want.
Ask yourself ...
Are you feeling overwhelmed?
How can you simplify things?
What's the worst thing that could happen?
Will it matter a year from now?
What would you say to someone else if they were in your shoes?
What have you experienced, learned, received along the way?
How have you grown?
What does your version of your world look like now?
For the moment my world looks calm, contented and full of love.
I'll let you know what happens next x
