Never fear making mistakes, they fuel creativity, providing we learn from them!

hi I would like to know how to stop making the same mistakes, over and over, I was diagnosed with ptsd and cannot handle anything anymore any advice on how to deal with the terrible memories I keep having and nightmares, I relive everything that ever happened to me always bad stuff, I don't get much sleep my mind will not shut off, I go for long walks in the woods with my dog and I yell out for help from god, I believe in prayer, I am not sure why all of this is happening to me I am trying so hard to find out who I am , why I am here, why my mirrors have been some really mean people. probably wrong spot to post this but was hoping someone could shed some light on this.

Hi Jubilee,

I'd say the first thing to do is to work to move beyond the idea that you are the sum total of your thoughts - you are not. They are simply the product of your inconfiguration of consciousness - your beingness.

At your core, you are infinite peace and contentment. This is what you have to work to connect with. It's about accessing your deep inner sense of being.

Going for a walk in nature is great, but if you're projecting outwards either in prayer, shouting, or focusing on other external things, then you'll be distracted from going inside.

Meditation would probably help a great deal. Just to breathe and observe your inner presence - this is who you really are, not ideas about what you think you are.

As we access this core beingness more and more, then the pain and disharmony of the past will unravel and over time, thoughts and emotions will come more into alignment with this sense of wholeness and connectedness.

You'd probably also benefit from working with a spiritual facilitator.

Jubilee, you are not defined by your mistakes, I cannot shed light for you but I can say you are not alone and you are loved.
