Receiving lessons can feel hard. When we are shown something about ourselves that we have previously judged as wrong, or bad, or we are shown something we don't want to admit about ourselves, it hurts.
Our subconscious minds desperately want to protect us from anything that hurts us & so it advises us to put up our walls, enforce our boundaries, disconnect & protect ourselves from others.
There is a good case for spending time alone, getting back to ourselves after a lesson is dealt, tuning into what we feel & think, rather than reacting to other's lives. Doing that serves us well, but there comes a time when we need to open back up & be willing to allow other's to touch our life.
When you haven't understood the previous lesson that caused you to shut down, it can be very hard to open back up, it can feel overwhelming to do so, the fear is real, what if it happens again?
This is why it's so important to understand your lessons, to process what has happened, to receive the gift from it. Then you can open back up to more gifts, more lessons & move forward in life.
The subconscious mind can relax once we learn that the lesson wasn't a bad thing, it was a beneficial part of our lives.
The way I learn my lessons is by connecting in with my higher self in meditation & asking questions. Why did this happen? What am I not seeing about this situation? Why has this happened again? Why am I attracting this? What else is possible?
The answers come, sometimes in the moment, sometimes through signs & messages, & sometimes through readings with my cards.
You too can get your answers through asking, through your signs & messages, & through readings. All it takes is an openness & a willingness to face whatever is behind your lesson. It's never as bad or difficult as your subconscious is making it out to be. Refusal to face it is surrendering to fear, it's resistance & resisting life makes life very difficult.
What are you scared to open back up to? Are you ready to face what is behind it?
