Letting Go of Past Pains

posted by Guy Finley

Question: I’ve been having many issues lately with past pain. If someone hurt me in the past, and a situation happens now that is similar to that, my mind instantly jumps to the conclusion of the past and takes my attention, convincing me the pain is real. I try to watch and not believe, but it does continually take my attention. I’m wondering about the difference between intuition and past pain. What am I intuiting as correct about a situation or what am I incorrectly assuming because of past pain?

Answer: There is no pain in intuition… ever. Intuition is a higher kind of seeing that can’t be emotionally touched by what is perceived. However, there is always pain in allowing the mind to unconsciously recollect and then identify with past impressions stirred up by present circumstances that seem (or may even be) of a similar nature. Letting go of this psychic undertow isn’t a question of “not believing” in what you see, but rather requires you seeing — and remain seeing — that something in you wants to look at what lashes you each time you lend it your attention.
