Heron’s Nest Retreat #5
Soul wounds are buried, unfinished business of the soul that will not simply “go away” with time, “good works,” penance, charity, denial, ignorance or repression. Wounds remain until you care for them with loving attention, nurturing and guiding support.
If this is the first you’ve heard about soul wounds, and you think you don’t have any, guess again. They are common, and can only be healed with willingness, awareness, invitation and allowing. In essence, compassionate, loving care is required to heal any soul wound. And most people haven’t been taught those arts.
If you know that something inside you is stuck but you don’t know what, it’s probably a soul wound that’s calling for your care. If you’re aware that you’ve been in an ongoing cycle of the same type of drama but with different people–often for many years, this is also a result of a soul wound. If you have unexplainable anger, sadness, anxiety, impulses and urges, these too, are the result of soul wounds. If you recognize any of these symptoms within you, let’s learn, care for and guide your soul to heal and love yourself and life more deeply.
