Today I was shopping at a place that had big screen tv’s and there on every screen was Tiger Woods face holding up a trophy. An odd sort of chill shot through my body and I wondered how many people are being affected by his infidelities right now.
It’s actually my inner voice pushing me to write this blog. It’s been bugging me for a few days and then today when I saw his face on every screen, I thought “Okay, Okay, I’ll write it”
If you’ve read any of my books, you’ll know that I usually try to find the good in whatever life challenge I’m going through so that I can get through it easier and without so much resentment about it.
What this public display of infidelity does for anyone that still has wounds from being betrayed like that is that it’s a reminder that we still haven’t healed completely. If you’ve been through this type of betrayal, it can take a long time to heal and some choose not to look at it at all. Sweep it under the rug and pretend it didn’t’ happen until someone famous comes along and gets caught cheating and then all those old wounds come up to the surface.
As strange as it sounds, if you are one of those people that has felt this kind of betrayal and you’re still hurting either with trust issues, jealousy, hatred, anger, rage, feeling like a victim, powerlessness, self destructiveness or wanting to hurt someone else, you need to look at this as an opportunity to heal yourself and those feelings. That hurt you feel is not about Tiger Woods or any of the other people coming forward about betrayal. Their actions are a catalyst for you to continue to heal so that the day will come when you can listen to a story of betrayal and not feel personal about it. That’s the goal here.
I remember a couple of years ago the astrologer Nancy Jernander told us that we were coming into a two year period where secrets would be revealed. That it was time for the light to shine on everything that was being kept in the dark and that’s why we’ve heard so much of in the last few months. My guess is that it’s not going to stop. We’ll continue to hear of stories of betrayal but if we can switch gears and look at it as a barometer for our own healing process, we can see the good in it. If you’re having a tough time not knowing where to go or how to go about healing, get a copy of my latest book, My Big Book of Healing. As you work your way through the book ask the Universe to help you be honest with yourself and get those feelings out on paper. This life of yours is about YOU healing . Give yourself the gift of healing for the new year. Make it your goal to get out from under all those harmful feelings that might be eating away at your good health.
We’re coming into a brand new year……………And from what I’ve seen in readings lately, 2010 sure holds alot of promise for people. I see new beginnings everywhere.
So let’s send a mental thank you card to all the people out there that are pushing our buttons and reminding us of our unresolved pain.
