You can transform your pain into power
If you’ve ever suffered from a traumatic event that changed the course of your life, a chronic health problem, or the wounds that traumatize the heart, then congratulations! YOU have an important mission and a powerful gift to share …
Meet the ‘Wounded Healer’
In 1977, an asteroid in our solar system was ‘discovered’ and brought to our collective attention. It’s called Chiron, named after the ancient Greek Master of Healing & Teaching.
His timely arrival into our awareness coincides exactly with the birth of Alternative & Energy Healing. Yep, it was right around this time that energy healing powers stopped being reserved for spiritual masters, and started moving through ‘ordinary’ Joes & Janes – folks like you and me.
How and why the heavenly bodies end up being named according to the exact energies they represent within our human psyches is a mystery that maybe even astrologers can’t answer. But as an astrologer, I can tell you that these archetypal energies are consistent in every single chart I’ve ever read.
It’s all about YOU
But this post isn’t about astrology, this is about YOU. It’s about your power to Heal, Whole and Serve others, thanks to the pain-teacher that was ‘gifted’ uniquely to you …
Your Pain is your Power
Or put another way: “Your ‘mess’ is your Message.”
If you’re here, I know it’s for 1 of 3 reasons (and probably all of them!)
1. You are seeking solutions to a chronic health problem
2. You are awakening and now seeking your Soul Purpose Path
3. You are a Healer, Teacher, Mentor or Spirit-Centered service provider
In any case, (or all of them), you came to be here on Mother Earth at this exact moment in time for a very specific reason. And that reason is DIRECTLY connected with, yep … your ‘wound’.
Shhh … Keep that mess of yours a Secret, for goodness sake!
So many of us who have awakened to our true, eternal nature, at first feel we must hide our mess. After all, if we are here to lift and help and heal others – we certainly can’t show them how vulnerable, weak and screwed-up we are, right?
You see, your unique set of life challenges put YOU in the Perfect and Powerful Position to help others with those very challenges. It is your passage through the pain, the mess, the confusion and the fear that makes you the ideal Guide, Mentor, Healer & Helper for others walking the same path right behind you.
Put Yourself in ‘Your’ Shoes
What I mean to say is, if you want help with a spiritual, emotional or physical problem, do you really want to go to someone whose never suffered? Would you trust ‘Little Miss/Mister Perfect’ to understand how to serve you?
(and if you’re not sure what I mean, think about how incompetent most political leaders and representatives are, and how incomplete most of their policies end up being, because they’re clueless about things like poverty, lack of health care for their own families, or what it means to work the butts off just to get by …)
Healing energy of any kind comes from the heart of compassion. And compassion comes from understanding – from the “I know what it is to suffer” experience.
The World Needs YOU. Umm … Now
This is why you chose to come here and struggle with your ‘pain’, your mess, your unique set of P.I.A. challenges. Not because of ‘bad karma’ or because god is punishing you, but because you chose to cultivate compassion-in-the-name-of-service in that particular way.
Your Story – Your Power
Sharing your story is a powerful way to get clarity about your Soul Purpose. It’s also a priceless gift you can give to those looking for understanding and compassion. When you share your own vulnerability, you allow that ‘wound’ – that mess to actually BE the catalyst for change your Soul intended it to be.
So with this in mind, I would love to hear your story. What is the ‘mess’ you came here to heal? And what is the service you are passionate to offer others? Please share the wisdom uniquely yours with us in the comments below.
And thank you for your courage to Heal, Whole & Serve!
