There are numerous paths to emotional liberation and healing.
One is to work through each and every drama and traumatic experience of your early childhood life. The direct path to doing that is to be in some type of therapy centered on diving deep into the subconscious mind. You then analyze the issues by talking about them and releasing emotions, after which healing can occur. Some people might not ever get around to doing that type of work because they might not have the capacity to find out what went wrong.
Some find healing by changing their behavior and devoting their lives to service work, doing good and positive things. Such people may have the capacity to shift their thinking from negative to good. Just by entering into that state of being for long enough, those people can attain happiness. The problem with this is that one who does so may attain happiness but never reach their true and intended potential. This is because some of the gifts that they have may never rise to the surface of their lives; those gifts may be buried under the psychological rubble and wreckage of their pasts.
Sometimes creative people have been stifled by emotional traumas of their past. They may have been ridiculed or humiliated in some ways in connection with their talents. When such situations happen in people’s lives, they should dig deep to discover where and when their traumas took place. If they then work through the emotional pain using calculated and effective methods, they can free themselves in order to put their creativity back into good use.
