1. You are of Him, in Him, worthy of all He is, innocent as a child is, and capable of making mistakes.
Do you embrace the reality that you are a Child of God?
Do you accept the Christ that is within you, is you, and your contract with Him was to come here in the flesh to prove He could suffer and die?
Do you forgive yourself and Christ, for that contract?
Do you see the Christ in others?
Choosing to recognize these concepts will change you from a witness of suffering, to a witness of the Atonement. (That is the miracle Jesus is teaching in ACIM.)
2. It will be in Grace that you stand as a recipient of the Atonement. As a little child, you will be able to make mistakes or take a fall, but you have a loving Father in God that will pick you up and set you on your feet again, taking pride in your accomplishments.
In Grace; in the abundance of God’s blessing and witness. You cannot fail before such a loving Heavenly Father. Grace means He takes pride in you in your challenges/weaknesses as well.
3. Compassion needs to be your offering to each other, through forgiveness, and then the sharing of whatever resources and gifts you are prompted to share as directed by the Holy Spirit. No one can be forced to accept healing of any kind.
Expect to go through a time of adjustment as you are taught by the Spirit when or how you might assist others. You cannot break their contract. Truth is not everything you want fixed is meant to be fixed. (Remember that when you are dating.)
4. Your PTSD will not leave you. It is part of the witness that life as we understand it as separate from God is a mistake. With the Atonement in your life, it becomes understandable and bearable. It even becomes something to be thankful for.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (emotional scars from the challenges you faced and the witness you received), embodies the role that you have accepted in the Plan that leads humanity into the Atonement. You may alleviate the symptoms, but the memory will remain.
Normally, we are taught that health removes these things from us. Yet, is that even logical? We may dress our challenges up differently or develop new skills or persona’s, but the person who went through that trauma in the unique way that you did, is like a fingerprint. It is yours and no judgment needs to be placed on it.
It reminds me of what they say about grief, expecting it to go away. The reality is that it never goes away. You never fill the void of who was once in your life or who, or what, you wanted in your life. You do learn how to cope or survive, for the most part, but that is not the same as the healing that only comes from the full awakening of Christ, when each of us join together (including Jesus) and enter the presence of God. It is where we know there is no death.
You are Christ in the flesh; innocent, perfect, and loved.
We are all in a state of Grace.
Compassion and tolerance needs to be extended to each other. We are not going to change another’s journey and without them asking for help, we need not take on that responsibility. We need to maintain our own boundaries, also.
Standing in the Atonement is a place of abundance.
Your Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is there to remind you of a loss that God simply would not allow to be real. It can also remind us of God’s affection and need of the Son, as well as the Son’s need of God, His Father. For neither is WHOLE without the other.
I pray this serves to lift you.
Till next time, God bless, Namaste~
