I think in life, humans tend to repress, repress, repress. This is our coping mechanism. And then all of a sudden, all that we have been repressing comes to the surface for healing. Much like the bug bites, the process of healing can be extremely itchy and sometimes painful. But once we can identify what's bugging us, the healing can begin and the pain goes away. Interestingly enough, sometimes we don't even need to identify what's bugging us, we just need to be aware that we are being bothered. Then, simply surrender and and hold the intention to release.
So, I invite you....the next time you get a bug bite (or two), ask yourself, "What's bugging me?" Whether you can identify it or not, simply surrender and release.
