Even though we all know that it is not possible to go back in time and undo or modify our past decisions, utilizing meditation we can change our feelings about those decisions such that they no longer cause us distress in the here and now. When it comes to the past, we all have a lot of baggage to deal with. This can include things like broken hearts, hurt feelings, or bad memories of loved ones who have betrayed us or hurt us in some way. We may also be haunted by regrets about things like missed opportunities or bad decisions we made in the past.
Things from the past that we can’t change can’t be allowed to encroach on our current existence.
In its simplest form, meditation involves nothing more than creating a calm environment in which to focus our attention.
To be happy in the present, you must learn how to heal the wounds of the past. You may wonder, “How can I heal the past?” With a new perspective, you can see previous events that you can’t change in a more positive light. Start your meditation when you are alone in a calm environment.
Even if you’ve had a bad experience, think about how it could assist you in the future.
You’ll never forget how it felt to be told or treated in a way that made you question whether or not you had any meaning in life or were unworthy of friendship.
When you go back to the feelings you had in the past, you can better comprehend the feelings of people who are today in the same circumstance.
It’s possible that you can help them by sharing your own story of how you overcame adversity and went on to build a successful life.
There are so many of us who just want someone to say hello or have a good day, don’t you think? A kind word can make all the difference in the world to someone who has had a rough day. My wonderful mother always told me that honey is a great way to get rid of flies. Meditation is an excellent self-care strategy since it elevates your mood and opens your eyes to a new perspective on the world.
Instead of being like the person with a nasty attitude, she advised, “turn the other cheek” and it might rub off on the person with a poor attitude who you’ve been around. If this is to happen, then meditation may be the key. So, as you can see, meditation has the power to transform negative circumstances into positive ones, and vice versa. You will feel more at ease and happy if you use your new understanding of the past to shed light on what happened before.
