Great Suffering of the Mind


As an empath, I have had the privilege of entering energy fields and minds of those I am attempting to help with healing their emotional wounds through Reiki and other modalities of healing work.  I have sensed and felt great suffering from those I am attempting to help.

What I have felt is that the greatest obstacles and sufferings are not from others or factors outside of us, but the greatest obstacles and sufferings are created by ourselves.  Let me explain.  When we experience anxiety, fear, and stress, most of these are perceived in anticipation of something we are about to experience.  This anxiety and stress is our fear of this future experience.  Some of these fears involve the fear of the unknown or failure in this future experience.  Other times, it is the fear of re-experiencing a trauma or negative experience we earlier experienced, but our minds cannot forget or let go of that past negative experience.

The greatest suffering is from our negative thoughts within our own minds.  It is our minds on automatic pilot filled with negative thoughts about ourselves and our future experiences. We essentially torment ourselves with these negative thoughts all day long.  Our moods and overall outlook are tainted and adversely effected by these negative thoughts.

The first step to changing our moods and overall outlook is changing our negative thoughts that haunt us by recognizing that we are doing this to ourselves.  These negative thoughts can be controlled and resolved through awareness, healing the wounds causing these negative thoughts, and rewiring our minds to positive thoughts.

Once we begin to understand where great suffering comes from – us, then we begin to become the masters of our thoughts and our minds.  It is learning to take back our own powers from our thoughts who end up controlling and tormenting us when we live on automatic pilot.  (Copyright 2018 Awakening Journey with All Rights Reserved)
