“Sometimes whatever you think is killing you might actually be resurrecting you.” ~ Jacinta Murray
I went under the blankets and tried to shake myself to sleep but couldn’t. I coiled up in a ball and held myself for comfort but the hurt in my heart kept oozing through my senses like dogs let out of a restricted area.
It was 10.00 a.m. on a Monday morning, a day and time when I would normally be working or taking care of other business, yet I was in bed–seeking refuge in the bedding. I had hit rock bottom yet once again. Someone very close to me, someone I loved and trusted very much had done something that I had clearly told them not to do. They had betrayed my trust, and this wasn’t the first time. The pain was rooted more on the betrayal and less on the loss. Additionally, a few days earlier, I had received news about my immigration petition. They had sent me a notice with intent to deny: and this was like the 7th time they were denying my appeals. I just didn’t know what to do. I felt as if I had subconsciously made a contract with the devil.
I was in pain…emotional pain that I started feeling physically in areas I didn’t even know could feel pain. But somewhere somehow I knew that although I felt beaten and trashed by life, I had to get my broken-self together and figure out how to move forward. It was up to me.
Why am I Telling You This?
When I got up, I prayed for help from God…the Universe. And this quote came in my mind.
“Sometimes whatever you think is killing you might actually be resurrecting you.”
I recited the quote all day because it gave me hope and inspired me to accept what I perceived as horrible for my life, as part of the divine plan, and then move forward with confidence that there was magic in this pain.
It is because of these experiences that my heart opened up a bit more. I learned to be more compassionate to others–especially those who were experiencing similar incidents. I was forced to learn how to forgive from the heart and mind–which is releasing all doubt and the accrued negative emotions from my memory.
