Healing with Time

Dear Deepak, How do some painful memories/karma (shadow energies) heal on their own with time without our consciously healing them through reflection and contemplation and/or meditation?


The natural force of evolution is a healing force that seeks to rebalance whatever has gone out of balance. It is like biological homeostasis, or even the natural way that our skin heals when we cut it. When we are emotionally hurt, our inner intelligence works to heal it through wisdom and spiritual maturity even if our intelligence and insight isn’t always consciously involved.

I have been in pain now for a few years. I long for peace but do not know how to let go - what does this involve? Any advice?

The past takes us to where we are in life, but it`s not who we are in life...thus we must learn to let it go.

Pain gives birth to great wisdom if we accept and work through it with patience and with love.

Acceptance,changing the story and feel it. I think we give so much energy to the past, i used to do the same, when you truly accept everything, peace just comes....a thought
