To allow ourselves to move through our experiences instead of staying stuck in them, we look for how we participated in the circumstances, experiences, and conditions of our lives.
As we embrace responsibility, we are given the gift of clear sight and are able to see how much we have grown and evolved from the experiences we have lived through.
The gift of taking responsibility for our journey allows us the kind of emotional freedom that can't be gotten anywhere else. We are able to see and claim for ourselves the immense inner strength always available to us.
So why is it that so many of us hold on to experiences from our past, refusing to let them go? Is it because w don't know how to let go and move on?
Or could it be that our familiar emotional wounds are part of our story, our human drama, and we somehow feel more like ourselves when we're holding onto them?
To experience emotional freedom, we must accept, surrender, and let go of our wounds. We must be willing to take responsibility for what we are holding on to, which is usually a hurt or pain from the past that leaves us feeling victimized.
The Code of Emotional Freedom calls on us to let go of "I'm Right" and "You're Wrong" and "I'm Good" and "You're Bad" so that we can stand fully in our power.
It calls on us to take responsibility for our lives and then, with grace and ease, to let go of our excuses, reasons, justifications, and righteousness.
