Many who are experiencing the resurgence of old emotional patterns that they thought were healed wonder if they are 'backsliding' or why, after progress had been made, the old difficulties reappear.
The 'purification paradigm' is crucial here, namely, to know that the experience of old emotional or mental patterns does not mean that something is wrong, but rather that healing is taking place more deeply within the karmic roots of the emotional, mental, or behavioral pattern. For this healing to be completed, the pattern itself must pass through consciousness.
The 'purification paradigm' allows one to witness this phenomenon without identifying with it. To that degree, it fosters greater acceptance and non-judgment, and allows the movement of light to do its work in the best possible way. Blessings.
