The path of enlightenment has brought you to a place of self-discovery. Old wounds are re-opening as a way of transforming old pent-up energies.

Your ‘stuff’ from the past is no different; it takes time to clean out the layers of sticky messes you once found yourself in. Don’t be afraid, the past is in the past. However, it’s important to take inventory and responsibility for what’s yours and what isn’t. Let the rest go.
