Conditioning of a Soul....
August 17, 2010
I pray the Angels are watching over you... keeping you safe and making you happy. This is something I used to hear my Grandma say more times than not when it came to neighbors who were going through a hard time or a child who always seemed to be unhappy. There were even a few times that it was directed at me. Looking back I can see why.
Life has gotten away from me. More and more people are walking in my front door and I am seeing some pretty unnerving things. I think the most unnerving for me is seeing just how many people have been conditioned to live a certain way because of their upbringing. Children can be 'molded' into what their parents want them to be. They can be isolated from society. They can be rejected from the family unit even though they are still living within that house. They can be made to believe that there is no way on Earth that they would ever be worthy of anything good or loving. Now you see where my Grandma's words stemmed from. She named this process "conditioning of a Soul". She watched as I was repeatedly told that I would never be anything, have anything or anyone in my life that was any good at all. When she had me alone she would tell me not to believe in those lies. She said that I could be anything I wanted to be, have whatever I truly believed I could, and I would be with the person that I was supposed to be with. Over the years I began to doubt my Grandma. The relationships I had brought a lot of grief with them. So why was I supposed to have them? Simple answer.... to learn. Well now that I have broken the 'pattern' of that conditioning, my life has turned around. I am where I need to be... doing what I love to do, and the people who are in my life are truly meant to be there. Do I have a ton of friends? No. Yet the ones that I do have are true friends. They are truly worth it.
So I ask each of you to look at your life as far back as you can remember and see if you have had to endure that "conditioning of a Soul". If you have... please believe me it can be reversed. It takes time and effort and most of all... it takes believing in yourself.
Conditioning of a Soul...
What is it little one... what do you see?
Whatever makes you think that you could ever be free?
Can't you see the chains on you?
What is it that you think you can do?
There is no way to escape your fate.
You will always live with an overfull plate.
Yours is not to question why
but simply to live within the lies.
Do you really think I will swallow those lies
not allowing myself to break the ties
that bind me to a broken life
that even caused me to be a battered wife?
Think again then I say to you!
For I am done... am simply through
with this hell you have put me through!
It is time for me to start anew.
Watch me now shed the old
breaking out of this disgusting mold.
Spread my wings and let my Soul take flight
and live my life with what is right.
There is no fear where I live now.
For I see who I am and how
you have tried to crucify me so.
Now is the time for you to go!
And once you have lost your grasp on me
forever and a day will I be set free!
This is the time to live the Truth
something I should have done along time ago... since my youth!

May each of you see the beauty that you are... the love that belongs in your hearts... the serenity that longs to be within your Soul. May you believe in yourself as much as I believe in you. For those who have lived this 'conditioning of a Soul'... my heart is open to you and I offer my love and support. It is not an easy path to walk, yet the freedom that it brings is priceless. Throughout this week I ask you to notice what makes your heart sing. Those are the things that my Grandma used to tell me belonged in my life. May your heart sing and your soul smile for all that is brought to you.
