Personal Decisions Of The Heart: The Inner Enemy!

Copyright (c) 2007-2017

It had been three days since he had gotten separated from the rest of his commando team, and he was deep in the heart of the Norwegian mountains struggling through a blinding snowstorm, praying that he would find his way out of it.

The time was World War II and all he knew, was that if he didn't find shelter or help soon he would lose his feet. They were already so frozen that he had taken off his army boots and slung them over his shoulders. Now, he was trudging through the deep snow barefooted and unable to feel his feet.

Strong feelings of fear that he might not survive made him feel panicky inside. He needed a miracle desperately. But it seemed his prayers had gone unheard, as three days had already gone by. His rations were gone and so was his hope. But his desire to survive to tell the tale was excruciatingly intense.

As Tony recounted his story to me, I wondered why he said that he had lost his faith and belief in God when here he was, some forty years later, telling mewhat had happened to him.

It seemed that as he had fought against the snowstorm and freezing cold, he also had fought against an inner foe that he could not see but one that he could only feel. The inner enemy gripped him with intense feelings of fear, despair, rage, grief, self-pity, helplessness and hopelessness. He lamented to me that he wondered at the time,

"Why is this happening to me? Why has God abandoned me?"

When I asked Tony how he managed to survive, he said that he had unexpectedly stumbled out of the mountains and appeared at the edge of a small village. What a spectacle he must have made as he stepped out of the blinding snow, in his barefeet, with his boots drapped over his shoulders and his rifle in his hands. The miracle he desired had happened! He had found his way to a community of people who helped him to physically heal and recover. But he had not recovered and healed emotionally because he was still feeling that God had abandoned him.

My question to Tony, was,

" If you could have seen the bigger picture would you have only believed in what your five senses were telling you?"

Maybe you weren't abandoned by God. Maybe the real problem you had was that there were major gaps in your data base as to how to recognize and deal with your real enemy...your emotions!

Don't get me wrong. A snowstorm is a snowstorm. But our feelings about what is going on outside of us also contribute greatly to how we handle the external events.

My question to you is this.

Do you find yourself in overwhelming situations where there seems to be no way out?

Your story may not be under the harsh conditions Tony encountered, but the reality is that anytime the emotions rule you, you've already lost the battle! Berating or belittling yourself only adds to your already damaged belief system that you should have done better. Shutting them down (stuffing or denying them) only prolongs your misery or life difficulties.

One of the secrets is to come to the realization that it is never you who has the problem! I'll repeat this. It is never you who has the problem!!! It is your data base - the thoughts and feelings held in your computer (your mind, heart, cells of your body - your subconscious belief patterns) that is missing some essential information you require for you to make a different choice.

Understand that you are not to blame.

YOU are O.K.

Your behaviors may not have been the best but you are O.K. This does not mean that I am condoning past harmful behaviors. I am only acknowledging that if you had known differently, you would have done differently!

When you come to grips with the fact that you are OK, along with the idea that if you had more data, you would have made different choices, you will then truly be on the first step in your journey to emotional freedom!

At this moment, you may be feeling just the opposite. As well, your life may not continue to be the way you want it to be. However, when you reflect on the above idea, that you are O.K., and can accept this fact, then you will experience an inner peacefulness! You will know that you did the best you could at the time and will be able to truly feel in your heart (emotions) that you now have the freedom to make different choices. Choices that you may have never felt you had before.. Additionally, your behaviors will begin to reveal your new found freedom and inner peace. In fact, the quality of your life will improve.

To-day, will you give yourself permission to realize that you are not to blame?

Will you take ownership for your feelings...to feel them, deal with them and heal from their ongoing e-motional sabotage?

Or, will you continue to let your life get so out of control that you will want to give up and just let the chips fall where they may?

The choice is yours!

Why not start your day by taking a moment to check your e-motional barometer. Are you feeling Love or Hate? By answering this question daily, you can improve the quality of your life!
