It doesn't matter that we chose to have an abortion because it was in our best interests because of our situation.
We feel we deserve to suffer because we lived and the baby did not.
But that's just a shallow look at guilt and suffering through abortion.
It's not the whole picture.
We can work on forgiveness, but often that's hard if one day we are telling ourselves we murdered another human and the next day we tell ourselves we forgive ourselves for the choice we made.
It only seems to affect us depending on our mood.
It doesn't get in deeper and last longer than a fleeting moment.
We need a different perspective for it to stick.
A spiritual perspective.
At a soul level we have lessons to learn in our lifetime. We have on some level chosen abortion as one of those lessons, and if we are suffering then most certainly it is an area we can grow and learn what those lessons are about.
It's lip service to just tell ourselves stuff at a head level, we need to reconnect with ourselves at a soul level and guilt is a sure fire way to stay disconnected and in pain.
Finding out for yourself what those lessons are is hugely comforting and reassuring. Knowing that your soul and the soul of your baby came together to make this agreement to do this dance called abortion.
It's not an angle that society embraces because the subject of abortion is still very controversial. Taking the soul approach in no way denies your experience, as if you took it lightly, but it explains how when healing abortion takes a spiritual approach the ability to move on and find acceptance is achieved a lot faster.
We look at the bigger picture not just that 5 minute procedure.
