Awakening and Dealing with Child Abuse

by Anon
(Location Undisclosed)

I found your website by chance today. It's not a coincidence that I was led to your articles on child abuse. I have started what I call my "awakening" since the middle of June, I started by reading Sacred Contracts by Caroline Myss and then moved on to A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. I have therefore been working with my archetypes identifying the elements of my psyche and this has led me to understand myself more profoundly. I was working on my past (wounded child, victim), my experiences (prostitute) and my chakras and soon identified that my illnesses were due to my fourth and fifth chakras as I have not been able to forgive, holding back my feelings and not speaking my truths. My initial thoughts were of times when I have held grudges and thought I was stronger by having values and it is these values that have held me back (saboteur).

I started reading Paula Horan's Abundance through Reiki and have now started her 42 day programme which I would recommend to anyone, I don't think you have to be Reiki attuned to benefit from this programme as the daily meditations would be beneficial to anyone.

Last week when I was on Day 3 the third chakra concerning relationships and sexual activities, I was informed by a medium that I haven't dealt with my childhood abuse fully. To this I cried, blamed an innocent in not protecting me, and the medium said that I needed to forgive myself. It is only now on reading your articles that I fully realise that I still thought that I was to blame, that I must have invited this abuse that went on for several years and I now know that "it wasn't my fault" that I still have healing to do to repair this damage. All my life I've been fighting, surviving, now during my intense awakening I can start the healing process. Thank you for your wonderful website. I am so glad I found it today.

I never understood the use of the word "coincidence", when to "coincide" means basically to meet up; so, given what the word means, I agree: it was not a coincidence that you found my site. Awakening to your spiritual Self is one of the most freeing experiences that can happen to you. The books you've read and are reading are exceptional in that light. One more I would add to your list, but only if you keep a really open mind, is Colin Tipping's Radical Forgiveness. The work included in his book can be very helpful. Thank YOU for sharing your story and how you're both healing and awakening with my visitors and me.
