"You don't have to go back and deal with childhood issues, because those childhood issues produced a vibration within you that you are still offering — which is producing today issues. You can shift your vibration a whole lot easier when you're dealing with today issues, than trying to deal with childhood issues. It's the same vibration. That vibration that was creating childhood issues, now it's creating today issues. Deal with it in your now. "Which thought feels better? Which thought feels better? Which thought feels better?" ~Abraham [Excerpted from the workshop: San Diego, CA on July 31, 1999]
It's funny that this came up after my post from yesterday (I think it was yesterday) talking about my fear of change coming from my childhood. The difference, though, is that I'm not going back to "deal with" the childhood issues, just identifying why I am so afraid of change - that is my current adult vibration and that's what I want to correct.
This is so important for all those who want to spend time analyzing their childhood and it's effect on the present. When you do that, especially if you're doing it with another person (counselor, friend, clergy person, relative, etc), you are reliving it and therefore the vibrations (usually fear, anger, resentment, shame - a biggee, guilt etc) will recur and take over your current vibration. You don't want that at all. You want to create your good vibrations right now and from here on out. Childhood emotions and reactions are self-centered (that is the function and protection inherent in a child) and as children we think everything bad is our fault. Thus the guilt and there is often shame as well. You don't want those emotions to persist throughout your life. If you don't release them and work to improve your vibrations, you will continue to exist within those lower vibrations of guilt, resentment, shame, anger, etc.
If you do "go back" to your childhood, get what you need and get back out again. Look at it as a cave that you want to visit and leave as soon as possible. Get the information about the event and then return to your adult state!
