Understanding stress, the cause & the solution is here right under your nose. It’s an inside job!
The main cause of stress and tension is found in recognising what drives it. By locating the real problem we can take fear out of the drivers seat and replace it with faith. As soon as faith is recovered, you will recognise it as your natural ability to trust your self. Faith doesn’t just belong to religion, it belongs to everyone as a real sense of self and belonging. By recovering Faith at the onset of stress and tension, we will prevent chronic anxiety and other fear driven illnesses.
Stress and tension have become a way of Life. It’s like an addiction to many people. They don’t feel at home without it. I could handle the tension from Monday to Friday, but I didn’t know how to handle my weekends without stress! I would often spend my Saturday morning with a migraine! It was like a detox! Why was that?
What makes us so tense and stressed in our mind -body system? Is it our way of protecting our self? Do we try to protect ourselves from being hurt? What hurts the most? It could be an array of things, including failing, being exposed, being robbed, being abused, being fired, having to make dead lines, having to live up to expectations, not being good enough, being rejected, what people think? The list goes on.
Keeping our guard up all of the time in an attempt to defend our self from the possible emotional upheaval, leaves us very tense and stressed. WE keep the so-called good, bad and the ugly emotions become blocked. It’s like blocking or constricting the arteries. As we hold on tightly, we harden, making it harder for us to attain that which we truly desire. Our real desires, which are driven by love can only be enjoyed through a softened heart.
Letting go of your defences means allowing your self to be vulnerable. Being vulnerable IS the way to success in all its glory. When you are willing to confront all that pent-up energy you can let it be in motion. When you let go, and let those blocked emotions be in motion something like a detox takes place. You may not feel good during the process; it can be tough on your mind and body. However, when it is complete, the softening happens, the channels open again and a new life begins to flow.
As all that stress subsides the love continues to flow, grow and overflow, leaving behind anything which is not of its self. This is freedom This is who you really are, the real deal. https://mariebrunger.com/does-forgiveness-stop-the-cycle-of-guilt-if-we-let-it/
With love, comes joy, pleasure, Faith, prosperity, compassion, passion, kindness, understanding, acceptance, honesty and other virtues become an expression of life. This is ‘raw’ love, and real life working its way out as one. It has nothing to do with anything or anyone else. Love is an inside job, exposing more of who you are, which before you were possibley scared of. Now, you attract to you that which you are alike.
This powerful passage is often attributed to Nelson Mandela. It actually originated from the book A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson (1992). A wonderful book which I highly recommend. I wonder how many of us really suffer with this contradicting syndrome.
‘Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a Child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others’
What you do with this love and life, or this life of love is entirely up to you. With a new sense of self belief, you will better see those things you have already achieved and be able to pat your self on the back. You will now see those things, which before seemed impossible, become possible. It is possible that your journey, direction and destination will change dramatically. Why? Life will take on a brand new meaning and purpose when byou are guided by this higher and lighter energy.
The question is: “Will you let go long enough for that tension to ease and for a new and easier way to be shown?”
