I wanted to share a simple insight that came up for me this morning... it was one of those moments where you recognise you have 'known' a concept intellectually but it remains 'knowledge' until it finally clicks and integrates.
This morning I did a Mas Sajady medi healing and it was exploring both the dark realms and light realms and how one of the big misconceptions is about moving away from the dark into the light. When actually as we become more spiritual advanced, our journey teaches us how to master both realms.
Anyways, it made me think about the concept of separation as it relates to an issue in my life, specifically around nutrition and nourishment. Having struggled with an eating disorder for many years this concept of separation was very embedded in my mindset, 'good foods' 'bad foods', 'good day: perfect eating' 'I am a good person: perfect eating', 'I am a bad person: less then perfect eating'. The actual content of what made up the good and bad was quite irrational, but it didn't matter, what mattered was that I was viewing nourishment, and health through a lens of separation, judgement and lack of acceptance.
So, until we cease to view the world, ourselves and our experiences through the lens of separation, 'good/bad', 'right/wrong', the universe will continuously present us with experiences/patterns where we can either continue to choose separation OR we can choose to learn the lesson and instead choose radical acceptance. I realised this, this morning when I had too many home made protein balls and it triggered mental looping and disordered mindset around food :P & all of a sudden it was 'I am bad', 'Today is no longer a good day', 'That food was bad'. e.t.c.
When we decide to choose Radical acceptance and love over judgement and ridicule, over time it will cease to trigger these behaviours and self-sabotage. When we recognise there is no 'good' 'bad 'right 'wrong'... there is only a CHOICE! All we have to ask ourselves in those moments is, 'Is this choice TRUE for me?' 'Is this choice in ALIGNMENT with my values and desires?' Then our heart will show us the answer rather then the analytical mind.
