In the midst of healing, it may seem as if the healing will never appear. The long journey of pain and the hours and sometimes weeks and years of discomfort become a daily friend and there seems to be no end in sight. It is the trusting of the process that allows you to become silent and to surrender to the process of healing.
The process of birthing is a complicated one. It takes a change of thinking, the looking at the larger picture, the vision of the dream that is unfolding, in spite of the pain you may be enduring.
What is being experienced is change. It is a time to transformation which requires a journey of redefining an experience, whether it be an illness, a change in job, money or social standing.
Even a change in government as we see in our present time. The division of the country is calling for a rebirthing, a healing. It seems it is time for the baby to come and we are wondering if this will be a long state of crowning.
I recently went through illness and the process seemed grueling. The process took me to depths I had no knowledge of and many times I wanted to quit the process. My goal was to heal emotionally, spiritually and physically. I entered the journey in a contract to heal and be born again as a new and redefined being.
I had to keep my eye on the prize and remember to stay committed to my contract of mind, body, and spirit. I could not be a prisoner of my past behaviors that had caused the health problems that I was now experiencing. I had to change my old echoes of behavior and create new ones that would create different outcomes. I had to experience the root of my old behaviors that have supported my disease within my body which cause disease.
I had to let go and allow the process of healing to unfold, trust the grounded source and surrender to the fear of failure and a possibility of healing. I knew I had to use my historical personal story, get grounded in the truth of the story is able to allow the healing of my present story and my present illness. I had to let go in order to find a solution. I had to turn my pain into power.
When we come to our point of crowning, the pain can be intense, along with glee of the coming birthing. So, we must think of the transformation of any part of our human journey as a birthing, a time of becoming the manifestation of who we are supposed to be, just past our gestation period of pain.
As tired as I was, in the heart of the healing, I wanted to see some relief and get on to the other side. I also feel the same way about the rebirthing of our country. The baby’s head is crowning and we are ready for the birthing. I know our country needs to be healed and get on the other side of the internal division. We, as a country, are looking for personal and political healing.
It is time to enhance our active desire for peace within our country and the heart of our democracy. The desire of the country was to be a country of civil rights and the freedom to attain the American Dream of abundance and equality. Our pathways to freedom have had miscarriages and we are waiting on the birthing of this new child coming, the manifestation of a real authentic America. Through the blood and the bleeding, coming through the birth canal, the baby is ready and the crowning is announcing the ceremony of the birthing of the important desires that will heal us as a country. I understand the feeling of forthcoming healing, the coming of the time we will be rooted and grounded in peace.
The heart and truth of the matter are to believe in the process and never give up, no matter what. You can’t abort the baby before it comes. We waiting for the miracle of the manifestation of internal peace within our country, as I have done with my own body.
We must embrace the process of healing and trust the coming manifestation, in our times of becoming more today than we were yesterday. We want to be healthy, healed and happy, which means we must roll up our sleeves and get busy laying the new tracks for our trains of freedom to travel on. We must stand firmly within our principles and continue to work in faith as Martin Luther King Jr. says, “We shall overcome.”
