Steel Gray Clouds are all around me
as I cross a long bridge across Tampa Bay and I see the choppy steel gray waters. I know it is 80 degrees outside, yet my mind wanders to western NY state.
Those clouds meant damp and dreary rain days or cold freezing sleet. Bur-r-r is all I could say and I shivered as I drove over the bridge, even though it’s 80 degrees out. Even though a hurricaine Matthew is possibly going to hit the other side of my beloved state and is presently pummeling the Bahamas where I have family. Still feel a coldness not physical, but it is deep inside the convoluted thoughts in my brain and in the ethereal heart (not the beating one) where the center of our being arises. Not going to keep it like that, am totally shaking it off, NOW!
Funny, how visuals can stimulate a memory so strongly that the body actually shivered.
The chill I felt was so real I pondered turning off my air conditioner momentarily. But I didn’t as the thought and experience were fleeting and I made sure not to hold onto it!
It made me think about how the mind can and often does affect us. Heck some folks truly destroy themselves with negative self talk or repressed trauma never dealt with or healed. They cannot rise above it, sadly stuck in garbage thinking or emotional trauma that has real physiological negative effects on the body and mind.
And then I realized how some folks have suffered such trauma and perhaps repressed it so it is frozen somewhere in their pysche.
One day, maybe 30 years later the trauma comes to the surface and without professional help all hell can break lose for this person. Sometimes this trauma is buried, but not totally forgotten.
Yet despite the failure to deal with trauma over the years, I strongly believe it can be healed with professional help.
I also know for a fact that many are gifted in healing with the laying of hands and the ability to draw out what needs to be fixed. You see when we put trauma in the dark, it stays in the dark until something, perhaps a memory triggers it. Trauma needs to be brought into the light, that is where healing takes place.
If you keep it in the dark it can be an open door for further darkness to oppress you.
And you really do not know what is wrong with you, most are clueless as to why they are always physically sick or spiritually lost.
TIME to step forward, I can say with great confidence, if you seek professional help and better yet a praying professional, you will arise from the ashes of darkness. May take time, but you are worth it.
Do not let the steely gray cloud cover bring you into further darkness.
Put it all under the light, warm up your heart, mind and soul, asking for Divine healing radiation treatment (LOL, that’s what I call it).
Don’t believe that spiritual healing is possible? That is your privilege(or your demise). But I say we are body, mind and spirit….when one is ailing it can affect all parts….so get all parts fine tuned. Only you can shake the chilly gray cloud hanging over you. The rainbow will appear once you step forward, just be patient.
