Your Natural Wisdom

Learning to trust yourself

By Donna Morgan Published 2 years ago 5 min read
Are you seeing yourself?

Being seen and feeling like you have been heard, feeling valued and loved is very much a part of who we are. We have so many layers and levels to our being to our human existence, the us we are now. We are complex beings yet at the core of us, we all want the same thing, to feel the unconditional love we felt as babies but it's more than that, it's the unconditional love of being connected to source, spirit, the universe, god, goddess whatever term works for you.

In my years on this earth and before in other lives, I have seen this in so many ways. I have seen it develop in all of us differently, from not feeling enough, addictive behaviour, self-sabotage, procrastination, becoming reclusive, judgmental, jealousy, anxiety, stress, perfectionism, hiding in plain sight with over the top acts of bravado, not communicating, talking to fill the space, gathering stuff to fill a void, sitting still all day not moving ignoring the self or doing, doing, and never allowing yourself the space to be and receive, self-abuse, and of course self-denial.

Ultimately all of this or one constant act that becomes a habit can lead to emotional disconnect and physical illness. We store so many things in our bodies and our cells.

The things we experience and believe, the emotional state we are in at the time that we experience minor everyday trauma, change, a fright, and excitement our bodies record all of these events and all of our everyday events, our subconscious programming runs it never shuts down. Our beliefs and emotions attached to those beliefs are written or stored in our subconscious energy field.

This is something I have observed and intuitively felt from doing energy healing. It is the beliefs instilled in us and the way we bring them through into our daily lives from our emotional space that fuels our beliefs constantly reinstalling them into ourselves. Through these beliefs, habits and patterns we often compromise ourselves when we don’t actually want to. We continue to accept something that is offered to us or given to us when deep inside we are saying I don’t need or want this but then we accept it anyway, we move away from our true intuition and knowing we don’t need the food or the stuff, the relationships etc we settle and numb down, justifying our decisions with a yes but what if that thing never shows up again.

What if that person never comes, what if that love never finds me,

If I don’t eat now I may never get offered food again

What if I never get offered another job.

All of these are irrational feelings with no real basis in this lifetime for the everyday person.

Let's be clear here I'm not talking about people that have had a big life-changing trauma, physical mental or sexual abuse, tormented by a scene that will never let them sleep, I’m talking about the everyday things the irrational fears the fear of walking on your own, the fear of flying or driving, the reason yu over eat etc the irrational that cannot always be explained away so bypassing the self begins.

We become the collective conditioned consciousless society of robots.

We follow clocks not our bodies knowing for cycles and the times to eat and sleep, we overstimulate ourselves, with electronics, and substances to stay awake, we try to sleep when our body wants sunshine or gentle movement, we sit when our body wants to move. We ignore our body’s and because of this, our minds begin to run things.

We ignore our wisdom our bodies wisdom, we ignore the wisdom of nature and the elders the grandmothers and wise women that walked before us. Those that have shared the knowledge and wisdom of the ages with the mothers so they too will one day become crones and elders. All of this over the lifetimes and through habit and compromise we have been taught or learnt to ignore what we crave and seek so much. A tribe to belong to, our innate intuition, we study how to be intuitive psychic, healers, herbalists, naturopaths, to live off the land, we learn from others, yet we do not learn from ourselves from our deep well of inner wisdom.

As messengers, creators, awakened voices we need to support and help each other as we begin to reteach and relearn for ourselves and our children. To change the patterns, the instilled beliefs and the faulty imprints that we unconsciously have running within us and our children and our children's children. We are being called now in this year of massive change to do things differently. To stop following what has always been done this way before us and to create a new way for our family, our tribes!

It is time for us to look at the ways of the Elders, the grandmothers, the wisdom of the Crone, the village wise women, to look at the wisdom of the animals and the land and begin to change the way we view things. It is time we begin to feel nature and the natural world again, feel into how things want to be done by your body and your inner wisdom your inner counsel and create a new tribe new family pattern new beliefs

Creating a new cellular imprint in ourselves and our children starts with going against the old patterns and beliefs. It begins by meeting your layers and fears working on the instilled beliefs and changing your perspective. Not necessarily letting things go and definitely not bypassing or ignoring the beliefs, patterns or ourselves. There is not burying your head in the sand this is the opposite it is showing up and meeting your beliefs working with the reason they are with you and letting your wisdom and intuition guide you in what needs to happen next. It may mean looking at the way you want to parent yourself, letting the inner child show you what you need. By doing this we begin to rewrite our perception of who we are.

When we do this deeper work we learn to hold space for ourselves and others but we also learn to trust ourselves and we become aware of the beliefs as they rise to be seen.

This wisdom comes from the deep depths of the wise crone, mother, enchantress priestess within me. We are all meant to live without compromising our wisdom and our true gut intuitive beliefs.

Are you ready to take your journey within to let go of the negative beliefs and instil new ones?

Rewriting you as you go.

It's time for all of us to change and shift our old patterns and beliefs take charge of our health and listen to our bodies, raising the next generations to listen and be wise.

Everything is possible when you believe in yourself and see yourself through new eyes
