We experience growth when we learn to release all the negativity from a past experience. When this happens we feel great! Then something comes along to remind of that painful experience, a friend going through a similar circumstance, a dream, even something as simple as a song on the radio, and those feelings of negativity and defeat return. When we recognize what's happening we can quickly clear out negativity and release it, understanding it is no longer real, it is the past and over and done. We bring our awareness back to the present and the life we are creating now. This spiritual growth is a big part of our journey. I find it easier to deal with life's lessons with a regular meditation practice and chakra clearing. Learning to quiet the mind and clear the body of negative energies brings us more in align with our spiritual journey. Blessings my friends.
