HEAL THE PAST
"What you bring forth out of yourself from the inside will save
you. What you do not bring forth out of yourself from the inside
will destroy you."
-- Gospel of Thomas
We can transform painful memories by re-imagining them from the
soul’s perspective of love and meaning.
Andrew Schneider says that all experiences have the purpose of
serving the soul. An experience in the past blocked us because
our fear at the time distorted our perception of what happened.
To transform this limiting experience, we must bring what was

2. OWN the experience (no judgment, blame, etc.).

4. GIVE IT MEANING (the soul was attempting to gain some kind of
mastery or skill, but we didn’t know that at the time).
5. RE-IMAGINE it from the perspective of soul consciousness
(showing its higher purpose).
"Letting go of our suffering is the hardest work we will ever do.
It is also the most fruitful. To heal means to meet ourselves in
a new way -- in the newness of each moment where all is possible
and nothing is limited to the old."
-- Stephen Levine
