Have you ever reacted to something someone said or did and justified it with "well if it was just his one thing, I wouldn't care, but there is this and this and this"? Then you list out all of things that have ever happen with this person that relates to this situation that is happening now. This is a big sign your energy drain is clogged! You are carrying that past around with you and not letting it go. The next time something goes there in that same energetic pattern, be it that person, that situation, etc., it catches on that clog and adds to it, instead of washing through. It piles up on you and pretty soon you are reacting to things that are happening now based on something that is already over and done. How do you just let go of all of this?
Awareness is the biggest gift of all and you are giving that awareness to yourself every time the past comes up. Notice the entire story that is coming out here. Notice the things you could list in relation to this issue. These are all the issues that want to be healed right now! Bring them up. Look at them with fresh eyes and all that you have learned since that happened. Sink into the past feelings that want to clear out now and let them have permission. Then notice how that shifts everything.

Really noticing it, feeling it, having the wisdom of it. This is your chance to heal your past! It is really that simple. Give it a try. This isn't going to solve all you past traumas at once... but it is so much better than adding to the plug.
