My life has been so simple and yet it is the perfect example of how your thoughts create your reality and how you can spend your whole life time missing the point of your existence. How one single event can change how you view the world for most of your life and more importantly how you view yourself.
I invite you to use this book as your journal and take this journey with me. At the end of each chapter there will be an invitation for you to look at your own life, so that you can start finding the gift in every moment. Life is giving you each moment as an opportunity that you may KNOW who you are. Consequently, everything that comes to you is exactly what you need for YOU. Start peeling all the layers of wrapping paper off today and discover exactly what's inside each gift.
I believe with all my heart that until we can make peace with our past and understand the blessing in every moment, we cannot move forward. At each point we have made interpretations about others, about the world, about ourselves. As children we take in what adults tell us as true. To be awake to who you truly are is to understand that it was always their truth. What they believed about themselves and the world around them.
Understand that an adult who has a heart full of love, cannot harm another human being or living thing. Therefore, if an adult hurt you, physically or emotionally, it was just an expression of the pain they were carrying within them. The pain of feeling unwanted, unloved, unworthy and not good enough. Their anger towards you was never about you and for some adults what they do is all they have ever known. It is up to each one of us to choose whether the cycle of abuse continues.
You are here reading this book because it is your time to be happy. It is your time to make peace with your past. Find the blessings in each and every moment you have experienced. Free yourself from every interpretation you have made that does not serve you. It is your time to release every thought that makes you feel bad about yourself and begin embracing the truth. The truth that you are love. You were born to love and give love and be love. You are pure love.
May you KNOW at all times that you are loved and have always been loved. That your light is far more beautiful than the simple exterior you are looking at with your own eyes. May you always KNOW that you are not separate. You are not disconnected. You have never been alone.
It seems like, the times I have felt the loneliest in my life have been when I was surrounded by the most people. This was due to the way I viewed the world, because for most of my life I chose to believe that I was separate. First and foremost, I was separate from God, my creator. Therefore, I must be separate from everything else. Yet, something inside of me was telling me that this was not true.
Life becomes a completely different dance when you KNOW you are not separate. When you understand how connected you truly are to everyone and everything. When you can find the gift of every moment that you have lived.
I've made every effort to include the bare minimum about the people that affected my life. This is to protect their privacy, because this is not their story. This is my story and as you follow along you will understand how to write your own story with my book.
The thoughts and ideas I am sharing with you are collective consciousness. They are not my own. Actually, they are inside all of us. The idea that we are not alone has always been in the back of your mind. All of us are connected by energy. Everything you say and everything you do affects others. Similarly, you are affected by everyone that you come in contact with every day.
Whether you choose to accept them and believe these are true is entirely up to you. What you believe has always been up to you. All that is true and real is inside of you. You just need to KNOW it. However, hearing the words and knowing them are two different things. Experience is what takes the words and turns them into knowingness.
Take this journey with me today. Don't put it off for one more second. Fall in love with your life and with who you are. In the beginning, it will feel like hard work, because we are not in the habit of working on ourselves. All of our focus has always been on others. It is time to make it a habit. As a result, you will be in love with the process of learning more and more about yourself.
Otherwise, you will stay on the same path you are already on. Feeling that there is something else out there but not being able to tap into it. Change means doing something different. For this reason it is imperative that you take the first step. Do the exercises marked out for you in this book. Read over the chapters as many times as you need to. Each time you do, something new will pop up for you revealing something new about who you really are.
May this book guide you to your inner peace. May it guide you to your joy and to your bliss. Follow each chapter carefully. Look at your own life. Look at what you have created up to this point in your life. We choose our parents and environment we come into because it will benefit our growth the most. Whether we choose to let our beginnings define us for the rest of our lives is entirely up to us.
This empowering step-by-step guide helps you find the gift in every moment experienced in your life. By following the process, you will find the answers inside and finally set yourself free.
So many self-help books teach you to bury your past and just focus on your future. The truth is that you can’t create the life of your dreams until you understand the gifts you have already received. As long as you keep burying your past, ignoring it, or just pretending that it never existed, you will always feel stuck. When you can understand the value of each experience that you have had in your life, then and only then can your life take off.
In this unique work, Your Past is a Gift, you will learn:
Who you truly are
The purpose of your relationships
How to learn from your mistakes, rather than avoiding them
What’s holding you back from living the life you always dreamed of having
Why you are angry or frustrated all the time
The truth about your money issues
Why you keep sabotaging your best efforts to be happy
The reason you feel alone, regardless of how many people you have in your life
Hollie Belle invites you to use this book as your journal, start the process today, and fall in love with your life. You deserve to be happy.
