The following is an exact excerpt from the book Listening To Your Inner Voice by Douglas Bloch. I in no way possess any ownership of the following. I am simply sharing the thoughts, expressions and words of an author who has inspired me.
You Can't Heal What You Can't Feel
You are like a diamond that is continuously being polished and perfected. As this purification proceeds, old thoughts and negative patterns rise to the surface to be released. Past unfinished business must be completed. Old traumas that have been stored in the body as to be discharged.
This is not a bad thing - far from it. The fact that painful events are being re-experienced is a sign that healing is taking place. Although you may feel tempted to run from these feelings, let yourself experience them. As you allow yourself to feel the pain, the pain diminishes and eventually disappears.
Spirit is always helping you to release what you no longer need. Let go of the resistance and surrender to the process. Complete the past and move on. Once you have done the work, you will never have to repeat it. How good it feels to be free!
