Interested to find out about the parts you are most grateful for ?
Hi Tom, thanks for asking a great question.
A lot of instances that I initially thought were challenging ended up being very positive and life changing. For example repairing and improving relationships, finding a creative side, getting to know myself, releasing trauma, and a much deeper understanding that life is a journey not just a series of objectives. The process has helped me grow in confidence and discover sides of myself that I was not aware of. So paradoxically the parts of the journey that I am most grateful for have arisen through the most challenging experiences.
A year after surviving what was a traumatic 4 month initial crisis when my kundalini erupted I went to the inaugural Emerging Proud Event...it was inspiring meeting others who were on a similar journey.
Also around this time I realised that emotions relating to child hood trauma had been released......a sense...to use an old fashioned metaphor... that the tape had been erased.
This resulted in:
A great sense of freedom
A sense that joy is the back ground sound even in difficult times
Freedom from my "self" which I could now observe rather than be taken over by.
A greater feeling of love towards others (often random!)
A deeper sense of connection with Nature.
So it has been pretty good really!!!
The initial explosion of energy. It lasted for 10 weeks in my case and it was like being high on positivity, freedom and power while being more pleasurable than anything else I have ever experienced. When it stopped I enjoyed the moments when I unravelled knots within me (I can feel them in my body and working somatically seems to be a much easier path for me to deal with my issues) and the peace that has slowly sunk in.
I love this question.
Getting to know myself and to remember the simple joy of being alive.
