There is an old saying that goes ‘Time heals’.  Time heals all wounds.  Just give it time, you will heal ‘or’ you will feel better.  Especially when we are talking about emotional wounds such as heartache or abuse it does seem to work.  Or does it?  After some weeks or months, and for some even years, you do tend to feel better.  As time moves on the emotional pain lessens and you start to feel like yourself once again.  So you move on with your life, but then you start to have physical ailments that recur over and over again.  You start to get sick all the time; you just finish one cold and you start another. You may start getting migraines, back aches, rashes or stomach problems. Or maybe you just seem to be more stressed out; getting bouts of anxiety or depressed now and then. This is your body trying to tell you that there is something wrong.

Everyone gets stressed out now and then.  It’s normal so you think nothing of it.  The same goes for migraines and stomach problems.  I have lived for many many years in pain before I realized that my body was shouting at me.  It was not until recently that I got a big AHA moment about time.  Once I realized that I never forgave myself for things that happened some 10 and 20 years ago, my pain and health has been steadily improving.

Time will heal all the physical wounds BUT time does not heal all the emotional wounds. Yes, over time you will feel better, that doesn’t mean that you are healed. All it does is suppress the emotion so you can go on with your life.  The problem with that is the wound is still there and it’s festering.  Over time that emotional wound will fester into a physical ailment.

Why? Why hasn’t the emotional wound healed with time? Because with the emotions there is usually feelings of hurt or guilt associated with the wound.  Until these feelings are let go, the wounds will not heal. You may think you feel better but these recurring ailments are your body’s way to tell you that there is something wrong. I was lucky to get that AHA moment which came to me when I was meditating. Many people don’t ever get that AHA moment and some have even used passed life regression to deal with issues from previous lives. That I am not going to go into here.

The best way to let go and heal is to acknowledge what caused the wound then forgive yourself and if there is anyone else involved forgive them as well.  Then just let it go.  Believe me when I say you will feel like a big weight has lifted off you when you do this.

Wow, my back feels better already!
