As time goes on the events of our past fade away… if we let them.  We can hasten the process by focusing on the “now.”  You’ve heard this before… right? 

We have to be in the right place, in the right frame of mind, to hear the messages that make a difference in our lives.  Until we’re ready the messages are lost on us.  How many times have you thought, “I know this.”  Yet we ignore the message.

It’s time to start living a conscious life.  To sit up and take notice of those messages that have been waiting for us to “get” them.  We’re smart people after all…  So let’s do this!

Here is the Simple Step when dealing with what is haunting you from your past:

It’s over, done, you can’t change it, you can’t take it back, you can’t, you can’t, you can’t. 

So rather than focusing on what you can’t do… start focusing on what you can do!   You can learn from your mistakes.  You can do things differently, now

When you chose to live in this moment… and live the life that feels right to you deep within your soul… you’ll live that authentic life.  And when you do… you’ll realize that the past is past.  It doesn’t matter. 

Only what you do now matters.  And I promise you… focusing on the now feels so much better!

  1. As always, I love your work Cheryl.

    I read this on the 20th anniversary of my son's death and can say in no uncertain terms, this blog is absolutely on the money.

    We often get trapped in the "what ifs" which only intensify the pain and suffering attached to the incident. We can quickly get mired down in the belief that we can do nothing about our feelings. We fall into victim mode and while the pain is all consuming, it at least gives us an excuse to emotionally die. The illusion is that it is easier to stay in the pain than reach beyond it to healing. Like you say, we cannot change the past, we cannot change the incident, we can only change the way we perceive it and the way we respond to it.

    Focusing on the now really works and yet it is so difficult to do at times. We must be open to the resources available to help get focused. Those resources come in all shapes, sizes, forms, people, situations….. Mine came in the form of a week long seminar and brought me back to life.

    Twenty years ago I never would have thought the death of my son would be an inspiration, the pain at that time was simply too great. But that is exactly what it has been… Because of that situation, I was able to adjust my life and have been able to work with thousands of people in their search for positive life changes.

    Thank you Cheryl,
