Have you ever noticed that like a moth to a flame, we are hypnotically drawn to that which is not good for us? As human beings, every one of us has issues but unfortunately not every one of us is always consciously equipped to deal with them. We obviously all have the innate tools to do the work but somehow the draw of the “dangerous and forbidden” tends to be too alluring and seductive that we fall prey to our impulses and lose our way. We can see this manifest in a myriad of addictions (substance, sex and dysfunctional love) where self-sabbotage seems to reign king.
Once you begin the work and you are truly on a path of healing, you will no longer feel anesthetized by the warmth and glow of the flame. For once we get burned, consciousness becomes heightened and we begin to learn how to find another way to show up. Self-sabbotage begins to take a back seat to healing. Look at your patterns, where are you drawn to the “unhealthy” in your life? Do you go back to dysfunctional relationships hoping to make them work? Do you turn to food to fill an emotional need? Do you hide your pain behind smoking or recreational drugs/alcohol? These are all ways of coping and temporarily “band-aiding” a gaping wound that is crying out for attention. When you are ready to do the work, the teacher will appear. The answers will be given to you. And life as you know it will change for the better. You are never alone. You are never broken. You only need to wake up and feel the heat of the situation before you thrust yourself headfirst into the flame.
