What is in that old baggage: Old repressed emotions, old unhealed wounds, fears, shame, guilt or anger that people still carry around. And they all can hinder people to attract new things. Because those old energies hinder them to raise their vibrations to the next level. You now understand why it is necessary to first clean them all out. Because those old emotions lower your vibrations.
This is why in my blog, I so often share tools and information that help you heal all that; because through these steps, you clean out „the old baggage“. You can't take it with you into the higher dimensions. Even many would like it, nobody can skip these steps.
Maybe, there is bitterness. At a certain age, all people have experienced situations where they sometimes feel a little bitter. Sure, one would never admit this feeling. Such an uncomfortable feeling has also a lesson for people. Where does it come from? What does it tell? And how can a person overcome it, heal it, transform it and let it go, to feel new joy of life again:
People can observe their own bitterness when they are in a situation where old emotions are triggered. When these old emotions come to surface again, they feel the old pains or old fear again, the signs of unhealed wounds. Those moments then are real chances for healing, if
one can look at them this way.
Then, it is important that the person doesn't project those unfulfilled needs on other people. Often, bitterness goes together with old anger and resentment. Especially, when one refuses to forgive another person. Bitterness has many different roots and is often well hidden. But everybody has to clean it out, if he wishes to manifest and create a fulfilling life.
Bitterness can come from situations where your needs haven't been met, where you didn't feel respected by people around you. Or from situations where one felt rejected. If a person has experienced this too often, one then feels disappointed, hurt and also bitter. Bitterness often
goes together with anger, when the human self didn't get its will.
There are many reasons why a person ends up feeling bitter about life or about relationships.
The more important question is: how does one transform and heal it?
First, he looks at the bitterness and simply accept it fully. He says "yes" to this feeling he doesn't like to feel. One admits that he feels what he feels. He now makes peace with all the bitterness. Because one can't change an emotion, as long as one doesn't embrace it. Therefore, he admits to himself that he feels this way and he accepts it. Then, one can transform it.
From here, there are different steps that one can take, depending on the reasons for bitterness: before you go to forgiveness, simply honor yourself and your own feelings. Because one of the things that has hurt you in the past is the fact that others didn't honor you and not acknowledge your feelings. Now today, this is your own task: you can honor and acknowledge your own feelings and own the full responsibility for them. With this, you detach yourself from others.
Then, you can do the steps of forgiveness, if necessary. If you wish to transform and heal all the blocked emotion in a situation with other people, here is another helpful tool: bless them all with Divine Light. Bless all people who were with you in that situation with Divine Light and Divine Peace. This will release all old emotions.
You often hear people say: You got hurt because you had certain expectations. Some people judge expectations as something negative. An expectation isn't negative. You were young and didn't know all you know today. You were simply learning. Acknowledge this, honor your expectations, don't judge yourself for having had certain expectations or needs. Take them back into your heart and embrace them. Imagine how you, as your Divine Self, give a big hug to your human self.
That is how you become fully self-responsible, free and whole: you learn what real self-love is. Unconditional self-love helps you to raise your vibration, and to heal yourself.
In those steps of self-healing, you give yourself all the love, all the honor, all the kindness and acknowledgement, all the care and attention that you need. You no longer expect others to do this for you, because it simply isn't their job. Even if you are in a love-relationship with someone, this still remains your own task, always. You can choose to react differently and keep the full responsibility for your well being.
Therefore, feelings of bitterness and anger show you where you didn't take care of your own needs. They show you where you didn't put yourself first place; and where you have projected your expectations on others; and where you didn't honor yourself. They also show you where you forgot to set healthy boundaries. This is how sometimes, bitterness can be a real good teacher on the path of self-healing, unconditional self-love and awakening.
You now understand that bitterness is not a feeling to repress. It is one that can help you to be free, and serve you for your healing. It also shows you in which areas of your life you still have to make peace with certain themes. It is a guide to unhealed wounds you have to look at. Bitterness for some is a sign for failure, but in truth it is a good guide to healing.
The more you heal yourself, the more you clean out your old baggage. The higher then you can raise your vibration. From there, it gets easier for you to manifest and create what you wish to bring into your own world.
