Wounds – From My Heart

One of the themes this year seems to be ‘Play Full Out.’ So I’ve been practicing this in my life. It’s been wonderful, scary, expansive – and much more – beyond words really. It’s also been bringing up my wounds to the surface for healing. This is one of the themes that I’m seeing in 2012 with people all around the world. Do you have wounds calling for your attention right now? It’s not the most pleasant experience for me as I become aware of my shadow stuff – my old wounds that have surfaced over and over again in my life. I feel embarrassed – like I want to sweep them under the rug and disown them immediately. “That’s not me!” I want to yell to anyone who will listen. I’ve had stories about how these wounds weren’t actually mine: They belonged to the other – and arose from unique circumstances. Not my creation, not of me. Not needing my attention. Blame, extricate, and move on – that’s been my strategy in the past. Yet here they are once again. No denying that they’re mine this time. A gift from the transformation we’re all going through right now – and playing full out. I’m able to see the patterns around these wounds. How they’ve been coming up for attention since adolescence. Now to address and integrate my wounds. I’m always looking for the lesson. In the past, I might have told myself my wounds were there to stop me from making mistakes again – from playing full out where before I’ve been hurt. I might have focused on refining my approach to be more low key – to modulate my energy and my light to prevent waves from being made. I would have seen the resistance and my pain as a sign that I was wrong or fundamentally flawed in some way. I’m seeing it differently this time. I’m grateful that I’ve been willing to play full out in my life so I can engage new muscles, have new experiences – and yes, for the opportunity to heal my wounds. And even as I write this, I am aware of all the ways I’m not yet fully playing full out. I am inspired to a new level of engagement. In relationships, in my business, in my spiritual practice, with my kids…in every area of my life. I am inspired to embrace my wounds, to see my beauty there as well – in my very human experiences, in my stories and my wounded beliefs. To see the hand of the Divine inviting me to love my wounds and then to integrate. What a wonderful, frustrating, confusing, and breathtaking experience to be on the spiritual journey. It’s an honor to be on the journey with you. That’s it for this week…From My Heart. Peace, Ken Stone “The Soul Archaeologist” Internationally Recognized Teacher and Healer KenWStone.com
