Guilty feelings can arise from the feelings of not having done something at the right time. This could be not having resolved a problem before the death of a close relative or friend.
Maybe it could be to do with being unable to satisfy the needs of a growing family due to financial or personal problems.
Guilt can stem from so many different sources.
They all come back to getting stuck in a particular mind set and being unable to move on. I know that sounds simple.
Some people feel a ense of guilt from things that happened to them in early childhood.
Until I was given the chance to release it I had carried a guilt about causing the house to be set on fire. The story goes like this.
We had just moved into our first home. I was about 18 months old my sister 2 years older.
Mum and Dad had little money and our house had very basic facilities. Our cooker was a two ring gas burner or on cold days a coal fire heated range. I donít remember this in detail but have put it together from what I have been told.
One day I was playing outside and wanted to use my potty for a pee. I must have created a bit of a fuss for Mum left her cooking on the two ring gas cooker to attend to me. As she was sorting me out the fat on the cooker caught fire and began to spread.
Fortunately our neighbour came to the rescue and extinguished the flames. In fact very little damage was done. BUT for years I was blamed for causing the fire. I can remember the story being repeated on many occasions by my Mum.
There were, in fact, two other fires in that house. Neither to do with my needs or misdemeanours.
One was when our primitive candle lit artificial Christmas tree caught fire. Very quickly extinguished. And the other was when my Dadí model aeroplane box set on fire. He used to use old fashioned salt petre fuses on his very efficient model soaring planes, beautiful to watch. The fuse burned slowly and caused a flap to lift and bring the plane slowly to the ground.
It was a hot summer and the salt petre ignited. Fortunately the fire was discovered before any damage was done.
I had carried the guilt of my early fire rasing attempt around with me into mid fourties total unaware of the intesity of the feelings I carried. The whole thing emerged as I was going through a Breakthrough session during my training.
My partner was finding lots of references to fire in my responses to her question. The questions were designed to uncover hidden problems. The references that I was bringing out i was conciously totally unaware of. But they were there trapped in my mind from that experience as a very young child. That process taught me a lot about how our minds trap emotional experiences and reuse them, sometimes daily.
When we are able to let past guilty feelings go we can move forward and ejnoy this time her now
During the process I was able to let those feelings go and leave them back in the past where they belonged. And just as importantly I was able to heal the hurt of my younger self.This gave me the freedom to move forward. Freedom to move forward from a restriction in my life that I didnít even know that I had.
So yes if you suffer from guilt in any form you can have it reduced so it no longer is a problem.
