How to Heal Your Past with Meditation

By Dick Ingersoll

We all understand that rolling back time is not a possibility or undoing or correcting bad choices we made in the past, however utilizing meditation we can transform the way we feel about the bad decisions we previously made so that they might stop tormenting us now in the present. We all carry a lot of baggage from the past, those things may include a heart ache, hurt feelings, or bad memories of friends or loved ones that have been untruthful, cheated, or betrayed us, happenings that might have brought us pain, or we might torture ourselves over opportunities we may have missed out on or even wrong choices we made in our lives.

We absolutely cannot allow ourselves to let things in the past we cannot change take over our present lives. Meditation is simply organizing our thoughts in a calming atmosphere. If you take the time to get to know how to heal your past it can enable you to be happy in the present. You might wonder - how can you heal the past? You can look at past situations you cannot change in a brighter light with a new perspective on the events that have hurt you in the past. When you're by yourself in a quiet place begine your meditation.

Think about how whatever might have affected you in the past may even be a an advantage to you. You know how horribly you felt when something or somebody said or did something to you that made you feel that you had no function in life or you were not up to the standards of others. Meditating about how those things affected you helps you to understand how others who are now in the same situation you were in then feel about themselves.

You know how they feel so you maybe can tell them about your past experiences and how you got over it and made a life for yourself. So many of us just need for someone to make time to say Hi or nice day isn't it? Just a kind word to someone who has had a bad day can make a world of difference. My dear sweet mother use to tell me that you can catch more flies with honey. Meditation can make you feel so much more optimistic and give you a different outlook on life in general, it is something very optimistic you can do to help yourself.

What she meant was if you have been around someone that wasn't pleasant or had a bad attitude don't act like that person does, instead just turn the other cheek and it may rub off on the person who has a bad attitude. Meditation could be what causes this happening. So you see meditation can be utilized to turn bad situations into something good or even good situations into something great. Shining the light of the new understanding on those events that happened in the past might help you to have a feeling of acceptance, peace, and happiness. - 14682
