Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. I am happy you decided to stop by and visit with me. Several weeks ago I published a 2 part series, Traumatic Brain Injury and the Power of Commitment. With in that article I used several metaphors to illustrate the journey and the power of commitment. On my journey through the power of commitment I have learned some valuable lessons as those lessons have pertained to the power of commitment.
In my experience I needed to clear the channels of my spiritual and emotional energy. I needed to come out of my denial system so that I could begin to heal in my body, soul and spirit.
One of the essential ingredients in my recovery process has involved the process of learning to redirect my spiritual and emotional energy. Let me explain. In my experience I have come to understand that my emotions have the capacity to harness huge amounts of energy. The energy from those emotions can either be used to enhance or hinder my recovery process. With my awareness, I have discovered that I can choose to channel my spiritual and emotional energy in ways that work to enhance my recovery process.
I can choose to thrive through my recovery process by identifying how my spiritual and emotional energy resources are being used.
Through my process I discovered that I was using huge amounts of spiritual and emotional energy to defend a denial system that was in effect invalidating my reality. Instead of enhancing my recovery process through my spiritual and emotional energy I was conditioned to use my energy to invalidate my reality. Over time I bought into the notion that my reality was a lie and the denial system was real. What made matters worse, was that I developed limiting beliefs and behaviors.
In my deception I used my spiritual and emotional energy to develop and maintain limiting beliefs and behaviors to sustain the denial system.
In my experience I reached a spiritual and emotional bottom that led to an awareness. My awareness showed me that I needed to stop sabotaging myself. I needed to challenge my limiting beliefs. I needed to stop practicing limiting behaviors. I needed to confront the belief system that was in essence blocking my recovery process. I then needed to begin practicing new behaviors to empower my recovery process. I needed to take the necessary action steps to open the channels that had been clogged by the denial system.
I needed to learn how to use my spiritual and emotional energy to enhance my recovery process. I needed to accept and own my reality.
In my experience one of the first steps that I needed to take — to be able to use my emotional and spiritual energy — was to break free of the three rules of dysfunction. I wrote a post on how I addressed these three rules Don’t Talk, Don’t Trust and Don’t Feel approximately 14 months ago. Through my process, I have been able to talk — to be honest with myself and other people, able to trust — both other people and myself, and been able to feel — through owning my experience.
As I have learned to talk, trust and feel, I have been able to release my spiritual and emotional energy in ways that work for me. As I have learned to talk, trust and feel I have been able to trust the process, a loving God and myself.
