I cannot tell you how stupid I felt after realizing this situation of people moving on and myself still fuming inside. One of the issues I had was with my boyfriend when I was 21. After 5 years of courtship, he left me with my unborn daughter and would not marry me. I was so angry over it for the next 25 years that it was virtually eating away at me with terrible tinea (athlete’s foot) in my toes for years. Once I let go of the anger and the frustration, then I was shown a past life which showed me that all that had happened was meant to be and that it was nobody’s fault. For 25 years I had sat on that issue, not able to let go of it, brooding over it every now and again, sometimes on a monthly basis. What a waste of energy!
When I thought of what I could do with that energy, I could have done so much with it – manifested money, a job, a better life – but I did not. I hung on to the memories, the pain and, of course, the emotions. It evoked sympathy and sadness in the people to whom I told the story. It fed my emotional body and ate away at my soul. Now I only get tinea every once in a while. Now I go within and try to find out what is causing it, what is eating away at me. I am usually successful in doing so and then in letting it go. Now I am very blessed to have the Thanksgiving because I can forgive and bless all those in my life who have taught me through their mirroring, but also those whom I have a bee in my bonnet about. But what about the rest of the world? What do they do without a special day to say thanks?
