"All is pattern, all life, but we can't always see the pattern when we are a part of it." Belva Plain
Money is energy. When we are aware of our greatness we start attracting our worth. Money then finds its way to us in abundance. Once our own cup is full we can then pour out to assist others in the filling of their cups.
However, some systems and programs in place appear to hinder people's vision to see their own worthiness, keeping some stuck in a cycle of lack. This lack can leading them to believe that in order to find worth, they must go after money and prove themselves worthy of being.
Why are there not more systems in place that value people, which in turn can help them understand their worth and enable them to fill their cup? Is this not the hope that is the American dream? However, many have decided to chase money and place it above lives, so the dream remains covered in deceit, fear, and hardship. The unjust court rulings, profile- police tactics, multi-level medical care ranking those with money, color and gender, as well as the unaccountable levels of government, are keeping the cycles of abuse running.
For survivors of physical, sexual, and mental & emotional trauma there is proof that having support can assist in their recovery. According to the website www,mentalhealth,gov it explains that there are 4 major dimensions that help support a life of recovery for those living with an addiction. It is proven that this support can also be used for all who are overcoming toxic behavior patterns to change and become a better version of themselves. They are: 1. health-wellbeing, 2. home-a stable and safe place to live, 3. purpose-meaningful daily activities, 4. community-relationships and social networks.
If we know that those that suffer from various traumas need to have support in areas such as health, home, purpose, and community why do the powers that be continue to operate in the same cycle? Today, homelessness is a problem becoming increasingly worrisome, causing some cities to become uninviting and unsecure. As home and rental prices go up, homes are taken right from under people. In recent news, single mothers and families have described having to move, due to landlords deciding to sell for a profit. Properties sold during a time when home and rental prices are sky rocketing, leaving families unable to find safe affordable housing, children torn from childhood homes, and individuals transit or simply homeless.
Homelessness is an emotional trauma and influences mental health that can have an effect on anyone. Those most at risk, and already suffering from traumatic events are military, women and children. If not addressed, the trauma can consume them. In the words of Napoleon Hill from the book, THINK AND GROW RICH -"When men first come into contact with crime, they abhor it. If they remain in contact with crime for a time, they become accustom to it. If they remain in contact with it long enough, they finally embrace it, and become influenced by it."
Once a survivor of physical, sexual, mental & emotional or military PTSD trauma is able to understand and leave the cycle, they are met by another abusive cycle, which if not careful, can send them back into their own cycle. It takes a lot of mind work to rise above the trauma to finally break free and live the life that one deserves. Survivors have trusted themselves in their own healing journey. Can they now get a bridge to cross through life that they are worthy of, not a brick wall that they keep hitting?
We'd love to hear from you.
