Guilt – Level 30 of 1000
Guilt is self blame for our own transgressions. People who feel guilt often have a past that they haven’t let go of. My theory on guilt is that if you feel guilty all the time, you will repeatedly do things that make you feel guilty. The law of attraction gives us a reflection of our inner state. So people who are self-condemning will make their own hell because they haven’t forgiven themselves.
I believe you don’t ask for forgiveness from God for your own sake. You simply forgive yourself for God’s sake. Everything about letting go is all about forgiveness and taking 100% response-ability. You always choose how to respond to phenomena. Life arises and carries you on an eternal journey. Everyone I know has felt guilt before. In my past I have felt guilt, but I am fast to forgive, learn the lesson, and keep moving forward.
Hell is a place and state of being, and happiness is an inside job. Life will never give you more grief than you can handle. Healing yourself from sin and guilt starts with the intention to move forward and forgive. People who feel guilt will blame themselves for things that they weren’t even responsible for. It’s unreasonable to guilt yourself for things you couldn’t manage.
The basis of forgiveness is to understand that we always do what we know to be best. I forgive people on the sole basis that I always know that the person who sinned missed the mark. To sin is to make an error. When you are enlightened, you understand that nothing is ever a mistake. There are no errors. The perfection of life is such that every bad thing is a contribution to the greater good. This can be direct or indirect.
I have been guilty of making bad decisions in my past, but they have always corrected themselves as I have healed more and more of my resistance. Lower states of consciousness always come from inner resistance. To heal is to let go and make happy.
Gratitude is 50% of the power of the law of attraction. All states have power, and guilt is no different. The state arises and nothing can be done about it. Simply being is enough to purge whatever is afflicting you. There is no absolute affliction, people who hold guilt will do damage to their body because illness is a blockage of energy. This is not an issue though, once you release the blocks of energy, the illness will go away.
I have bipolar, but have been in remission for a year because my medication is good at keeping me on the straight and narrow. I used to have side effects from my medication, but since I forgave myself for my mistakes and absolved my guilt, I healed. Side effects from meds indicate the illness hasn’t been surrendered. To use meds as a means to heal is fine. Western medicine is very effective, but the inner work is still an important part of personal change. Once you understand the nature of your illness, the light of awareness will bring what you need to deal with to the surface so it can be let go of.
Side-effects are part of the package for anything including positive developments. I have a Dog who I love, but the side effect is the fact that I have to walk him even if I don’t always feel like it. This idea that life is mundane and mystical is to understand that we have things we don’t want to do. I’m serene and have inner peace, but I still have to get the laundry done. Getting back to chopping wood and carrying water is part of the integration process. Sweet surrender is good, but states will always be subject to the laws of polarity and rhythm.
Once ego has been surrendered fully, guilt will melt away and often what happens will be a remission of physical illness. All illness is energy blocks. I think that following the path of least resistance as much as possible is the best way to go about the journey of life.
You will heal as you teach people to heal.
I’m a life coach and I would sometimes feel guilty that I didn’t help my client enough. My feeling was that I failed, but what I didn’t realize the whole time was that I healed my deficits in empathy as I set the intention to coach and teach. My clients and I exchanged communication and energy. Since we are all the same and are just different versions of each-other, I actually learned after 3 years of coaching that I am the perfect student I always desired as a coach.
All my students are perfect, and they have been my best teachers. There was nothing wrong with my clients at all, they were with me to show me the things I had to heal within myself. As I healed I realized my clients were mirrors for me to learn more and see what needed to heal. I was the recipient of their gift to the world. I think looking back I helped my clients tremendously over the last 3 years. Maybe in ways I will never be able to comprehend.
You can only ever meet people where you and they are at. I always bring my power of now presence to coaching sessions and allow my higher self to guide me through the discussion. The higher self of the client and my own higher self collaborate to facilitate the exchange that works for our greatest good.
I never come to a session knowing how it will play out, and it often never ends up being what I imagine it to be. Sometimes it’s a matter of personal discussion and I often just want to listen with intent and presence. My serenity is contagious as I hold space for the client to release what is in mind. I have ESP so I finish sentences and laugh before the joke becomes a part of the sentence. We all have different gifts and we are all geniuses at heart.
My goal is to be my genuine self as this is my greatest gift to the world.
