Does Your Life Need Pruning?

Does Your Life Need Pruning?

Rebirthing is a strong part of our life experiences that most people have yet to make a connection with. We die often in this lifetime, and we are born again in this lifetime. Just as ocean waves move toward us and away from us with their ebb and flow, so it is with us in our human suits. We have areas in our lives that have died that we need to wake up, and we have areas in our lives that we need to truly bury and put behind us. To be thriving trees, we must honor the value of pruning ourselves from time to time.

There was a huge photo of me as a baby about nine months old, and there was also a photo of me in my forties—what I had become. As I stood there, breathing in all the energy from people from all walks of life, I was able to feel how much of the old me had died so that the real me was starting to come through. So many doubts and fears and so much distrust of allowing people to get close to me had had to die so I could let people into my heart. A heart once guarded was now open to receive and let people in. It was truly a rebirthing experience.

Moving Beyond Your Story

It is not always easy for people to allow their old belief systems to die so that their new beliefs can move them from impossible to what is possible. People often become so attached to a story even though the story isn’t working. Why would we not be willing to go in a new and…
