It’s Time for Some Heaving Lifting

“You know what truly aches? Having so much inside you and not having the slightest clue of how to pour it out.” ~ ― Karen Quan 

Telling ourselves to stay in the light and to focus on the positive is not going to work much. We’re being asked to get real. We’re being asked to dig deep within ourselves and do some heavy lifting. We’re being asked to step into our power and be in our truth.

We can only do that by honoring who we are in this moment and what we are feeling. Anything less is just another layer of identification that we have added while on this journey. We must honor all parts of the light, the dark and ourselves.

It is time to reflect and resolve the issues that continues to bubble up for us. The pain we’ve denied buried deep within is asking to be released. It’s time to open our hearts wider and begin to heal at a deeper level.

Many of us built and maintained a defense system that retains the pain and locks out Love.

Fears need to be released, doubts banished and speak, not what has been taught and accepted, but what is known as so in the heart.

It means replacing ‘I can’t’ with ‘I can.’ It means replacing ‘I shouldn’t’ with ‘I may.’ It means replacing “but” with “and”.

Acknowledge what is asking to arise, make space for it, and let it flow through you, like grief. It cannot be rushed. Accepting to understand or recall its origins stops the flow and traps you in a seemingly endless loop. 

Release the emotion even it’s painful or embarrassing.  Shed the tears, scream if you have to, and experience it. Allow it to flow.

You’ll notice there will be room for Love to fill and heal that empty space within you.

Much love xo  Bernice

  1. I think this blog post is pure magic! So glad you’re sharing such timeless and wonderful content.

  2. You write about a concept that I struggle with being able to truly understand. I so appreciate your perspective on this paradox. You express it so well.

  3. But can you ever really get rid of all of it?! Sometimes I think I’ve dealt with some issues a billion times and they still keep coming up. Maybe I need to be more diligent.

  4. This is really great because it’s true! I had a traumatic experience that I needed to work through but I didn’t want to because it hurt too much. When I finally did the work, it was hard and painful, but I came out on the other side strong and happy. And I know I’m totally healed because I can talk about it without crying and I also have no anger left, only compassion for the person that hurt me so badly. I was finally free.

  5. Your post speaks very clearly to me. The quote you began with is the exact pain I was in recently. The process that you described is the exact one I am choosing to flow through.

      1. Really? OMG. I was just reading some letters over the weekend that my sister retrieved from her house, letters she’d kept from when I was just 14.

        1. Wow! Well there you go.
          I knew it was her even b4 she showed me an image of you. To show the connection. It was around 3am. She just wanted to say hi to you. Know she’s around. There’s a softness about her.

  6. Good post Bernice, but I was initially attracted to it because I thought we were going to be talking about weight 🙂 However, one does have to dig very deep to lift the heavy weights. And if you have doubts or fear, the weight quickly senses that. I’ve had times when I couldn’t move the weight. Came back a few minutes later, focused and picked it up.
