Find Acceptance With The Past To Make Empowered Decisions For Your Future by Trish Rock

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.”


Acceptance can set you free.

Non acceptance can have you continue to live the past, making future decisions challenging, from an energy of pain or fear.

I have many clients that come to me looking for future direction and advice. Seeking new perspectives on who they can be and how their life can look. And while I have all sorts of magical and powerful, practical and energetic tools to teach and offer, one of the most important hurdles to jump over is being at peace with the present moment, here, now.

Step 2 of my 5 step- The PEACE Process: Tools To Align & Prosper– is about forgiveness and acceptance. When we step into a new story, the old story needs to be set free with love. Being ok with what is now, entails being grateful for what was. That is the key to the new place of freedom and empowerment you’re moving into.

Forgiveness is freedom.

Acceptance is peace.

One of the things that kept me playing out the old stories and hanging on to my old life of lack and drama, was that I was so familiar and uncomfortably comfortable with the old stories and the negative feelings and thoughts that came with them.

Often the thought of accepting the terrible things that have happened to you can evoke feelings of resentment or anger. Associating acceptance as complacency or the condoning of what has happened. And whether it’s condoning your behaviours or someone else’s…acceptance is not that.

This is a crucial step in the process of receiving the new and releasing the old.

Acceptance is the realising of the now. The knowing that this moment is the only truth. And being ok with it.

When my clients go through Step 1 of the PEACE Process and remember their persona already living their desire in a parallel reality, things are different for them. They no longer hang on to old stories that have kept them safe because they now remember that what they desire to be different IS safe also.

Therefore, the acceptance and forgiveness of the past in step 2 becomes a whole lot easier. Its like sweeping up the residue with a dustpan and broom, not the intense cleaning that created the residue.

When you are in acceptance of the now, your decisions for the future are made from the heart, from what you desire, from your passions and purpose, from love and joy. Not from the fear of what has happened before, what you are hanging on to or what you fear for the future. They are made from a peace and calm energy, a flow.

What can you do to find more acceptance in your life right now?

When you allow yourself to be open to the possibilities that forgiveness and acceptance can bring, including the wholeness of you, you will be amazed at where it might take you.

Ask yourself this, do the self enquiry:

  • Is what I am hanging on to, or churning around in my head constantly, helping me?
  • Am I ready to be in acceptance of it and move past it or do I still need to be in the story? How is it benefiting me by staying in it?
  • If I could be in acceptance of all that has been up to now, ow would that feel?
  • If I was in acceptance of myself, my life and all my experiences right now, what decisions would be different for me right now for my future?

Forgiveness is Freedom.

Acceptance is Peace
