Our current life experiences are filtered through the lenses of our past experiences in this or past lifetimes. As I have clear memories of my past life, and realized that my soul still holds the pains and wounds of those lifetimes. For example, in a past lifetime, my lover got me pregnant then ran off with another woman, leaving me an unwed mother forcing me to give up my daughter for adoption. In this lifetime, I never had children in fear of losing my child again, and fear being abandoned again by my lover for another woman. These fears haunted me into this lifetime.
As I begin to release ego and have awareness of my victim lenses, I begin to identify these fears as they arise in my present day. This identification through my awareness helps me to observe these negative emotions, understand where they originate and that they are created by my ego. In my practice, I just sit with these emotions until they dissipate without reacting or responding to them. This is the Observing Ego Practice that I do every minute of every day. This practice is a form of rewiring our brain circuitry and changing our behavioral responses, a form of cognitive behavioral therapy.
From an emotional healing standpoint called Emotional Release Practice, I explore the terrible emotional pain of losing my daughter and losing the man that I loved, I believe over several lifetimes. This pain can feel gut wrenching, but I stay with this pain emotionally without reacting, although I may cry and even sob releasing lifetimes of pain and hurt that I have stored in my emotional landscape as my emotional painbody. Releasing this pain and hurt from my painbody is one of the hardest part of spiritual work as it requires courage and strength. As I devote time nearly everyday to releasing these pains and hurts, I hope for emotional recovery as many of my readers can understand.
Just know that this work will be the most important thing you will ever do for your soul, and will benefit your soul for an eternity. When you realize this, you will devote time to this work above all else in your life. With healing love to you, Brooke (Copyright 2013 Burrowing Owl Press/Brooke Chang with All Rights Reserved)
