When the past interferes with the present


Maria’s Midweek Mindfulness

Healing and Medicine

Everything we do, everything we say and everything we think is a product of our past and how it has shaped us and influenced the person we are in this moment. Some of the past contains hurt, shame, pain and sorrow. Some of the past contains joy, happiness, celebration and love. The formula, the cocktail, the proportions and ratios are what give us our unique, individual life experience that cannot be duplicated.

Every time we try to control the outer world by force, coercion, manipulation or aggression, we are unconsciously responding to an unhealed wound. When the unhealed wound is interfering with our ability to love the present, it’s time to open up to some medicine. Medicine comes in many forms but for this kind of healing it starts with a safe and trusted space to be heard and fully accepted.

From that place can we understand what is truly alive in us in the present and then we can begin the healing journey of sampling the medicines available to us. Some medicine we will spit out, some medicine will not help and some medicine will turn out just to be a band aid. With perseverance we can find the one medicine that works for us at this time.

The DRM understands that we cannot change the past so although it is important to tell your story and be fully heard, the purpose of the telling is to learn and transform the present, to alter the trajectory of wounds left unhealed and to become a master of self determination with compassion, mercy and love for the whole. The DRM is a form of medicine.
