Our past is just that the past it has already happened, we can choose to live there over and over again and when we do we continue to get the same outcome we never really get any farther ahead because we are repeating the past.
If we want to truly move forward then we let go of the emotional baggage of the past and allow ourselves to be in the present moment for it is only there that we can receive guidance from spirit, spirit does not talk in the past it speaks in terms of now.
Ask yourself today am I allowing my past to determine my present? If so why do I still value the emotional bagge? Am I will to let that baggage go? If Noy why?
