When you openly embrace a plan for healing and personal growth you may begin to notice many strong emotions that have arisen. Everybody’s past comes forth through memories. You grow, by letting go. Change is inevitable, as you embrace the seasons of your heart, you free the ties to the child deep inside.
Early on when the frontal lobe development is critical, children’s perceptions of the world can be brutally altered. The importance of allowing for our children to find their peace and grow naturally is of the most importance.
Strong human beings can develop at a rapid pace without tampered illusions and prefixes that our world taught us to believe in. It hasn’t worked thus far, so when are we going to stand up and take liberated controls of the forces at hand.
Although sometimes we may associate some the strong emotions and feelings with negativity (sadness, grief), these feelings are beneficial. You are working through emotions and feelings that may have been hidden and are now making their way to the surface. In time, you'll begin to feel different– you may begin to think clearer, and possibly feel optimistic. Others even notice it when you start changing. Growth is something to embrace, even if it feels uncomfortable. To grow as an individual requires time and effort. As you build your personal growth mastery, you’ll gain valuable strategies to build a knowledge muscle in your mind.
As you learn more about who you are, you begin to see things from a different approach. Your life becomes meaningful as you develop ways to know exactly who you are. You’ll develop a personal voice, both internally and externally which matches your value system. Each time you tap into your potential, knowledge and purpose are strengthened. As these two traits become solidified, you’ll continue to expand your mindset.
Each time you recover from any procedure it takes time to recover. The longer you wait, the longer it takes. Fear stops us from advancing. As you heal and grow, allow your mind and body will take some time to adjust. Challenging your inner child to grow is exhilarating and invigorating.
