Sometimes, bad things, unfair things, and injustices happen to us, which can cause us to pause in this place.  We want restitution for what we didn’t get and restoration of what we think we lost. We want vindication of our innocence and we definitely want vengeance on the people who hurt us.

We’ve heard that The Universe is keeping track and It’s balancing the scales. We look for it, but don’t see it; we wait patiently for it, but it doesn’t seem to ever happen.

We think we have to take matters into our own hands but we don’t know what to do.  So we resort to playing the “if only” game, alternating that with fantasizing about our revenge. We spend a lot of time (years, sometimes!) moving back and forth between these two “entertainments”. We hope one or both of these will heal our wounds and mete out justice.

But it doesn’t work.

On top of that, we’re stuck!  Fairly deeply, as it turns out, because we have so much time and energy invested in this!

We aren’t getting the relief!  The event is over and done with so we can’t go back for a re-do, and,  meanwhile, the people involved have moved on and seem quite happy and content in their lives (argh!!).

Then we start a new cycle: This is so unfair! The Universe is supposed to balance things! We want vengeance and vindication (add and image of us stomping our feet)! We want restitution and restoration (add an image of us threatening to hold our breath until we die)!

All this does is entrench us even deeper!

The only way things can be fixed and the scales balanced is by moving forward into the future.

Your homework today is to start the justice and restoration process by moving toward your bright future. Refuse to stay stuck one more moment.  Then take the next step on your journey to your dreams. Keep on stepping into the future. Little bit by little bit the balance of your scales will be restored.

You can do it!  I believe in you!

I’m so proud of you for getting up out of the muck, shaking it off, and stepping into your exciting future. I knew you could do it!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
