OCTOBER DEVOTION – DAY – 14 – THE HOLY ROSARY – FOR PROCESSING OUR OLD BAGGAGE
There is so much to talk about when it comes to our inner life and inner child to be specific. And it borders more on our psychological baggage. We accumulate a psychological, emotional and spiritual baggage when we deny and snuff out the voice of the child within us. “This unexplored and unresolved baggage causes us to experience problems such as mental illnesses, physical ailments and relationship dysfunction. In fact, it could be said that the lack of conscious relatedness to our own inner child is one of the major causes of the severe issues we see in today’s society. From the brutal way we treat the environment, to the cruel way we talk to ourselves, we have become completely separated from our original innocence.”
Thanks be to God for the gift of the Blessed Virgin Mary and her Holy Rosary. The Rosary assist us through its mindfulness nature to listen to ourselves, the depth of our being and a sincere personal listening to the rhythm and movements of the Spirit of the Holy Rosary, would unearth our old baggage of anger, unforgiveness, uncontrollable sexual feeling, low self-esteem and so on. Sometimes many of us feel discouraged from praying the Holy Rosary because it “embarrasses” us since it makes us to uncover our old wounds and past life issues. Here lies the healing – humble acknowledgement and channeling of such to the offices of the Great Mother of God. These issues, if sincerely acknowledged, they become prayer intentions for the Holy Spirit through the maternal intercession of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary to grant sanctification and empowerment.
