Below are some selected questions and Melanie Francesca’s fascinating answers.
What are THE WOUNDS YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT IN THE BOOK?
Each of us is born with a wound inside, a kind of mark that determines our existence. Like Dixi: her anger, her tattoos, and her mystical attitude towards the world all derive from this wound with which she came into the world, in her case, that of abandonment, the same as her mother, father, grandmother, of the great-grandfather: an entire family of souls linked by the same chain of suffering that each generation has the task of breaking, thus freeing their ancestors. Dixi hopes to break this chain that binds her to continuous suffering, always trying to recreate the same situation that confirms her abandonment and loneliness. Instead, Alan tries to explain to her that our present shouldn’t be linked to the past but to the future, in a new interpretation of life: we are not the product of the past, of memories; we are our wounds. Paradoxically, even if we lose our memory, we would act in the same way; we would recreate the same situations and realities. What happens to us only manifests who we are; it doesn’t shape us but is shaped by us.»
This makes us extremely responsible and creators of the reality that seems to happen to us.
The wound is like a radio: we only pick up the frequencies on which we are programmed. By changing the programming, we change our frequency. At this point, the secret lies in raising our frequency in love. How do you do? We intervene in the only area to which we are given access: not the past, not the future but the present. By entering the now, we are able to transform our lives because we stop lying to ourselves and start just being. We live. By living, we discover our wound; where is it hidden: in the pit of the stomach with a sense of nausea? In the heart with a sense of oppression, in the legs with a sense of paralysis? Our wound speaks to us with pain, it is enough to contemplate it with love to heal it. That’s what Alan does with Dixi: he loves her, and it would be enough for Dixi to look at herself with the eyes of an angel like him to heal… we are so perfect and excellent with our frailties that we don’t realize we have all the angels at our side. our feet…»
WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO US?
Life is love; love heals and heals. Every misfortune, accident, illness, and depression… are nothing but manifestations of the lack of love.
