Recently I completed a mind-opening and powerful 7-week emotional healing and sacred business course.
It was potent and deeply revealing. And I loved it. Some part inside of me had been yearning for an undefined locked door to be busted wide open.
Over those 7 weeks, I had the opportunity to witness in the many ways the relationship between my emotions and my mind were asking for some guidance as I would revert to those good ol’ comfort zones.
Those parts of us are so unassuming at first. They were once on our side – or were they? For the first time in my life I was ready to meet these parts and do the work to see what we could learn from each other.
The parts that were running the show on a survival mode that unconsciously I would go to during the passing of my mother.
Like a pseudo security blanket. The parts of me that were defaults that actually facilitated me during a time – to just “get through” life with the thoughts and habits that felt most familiar.
And yet, these were the parts that would furiously whisper again and again – they could no longer support me in this new space. In this new cycle.
This space that had been calling me to trust that it is okay to thrive in my life – and in this healing arts practice birthed a year ago.
It’s a deep thing. The parts of ourselves we cast out because we do not (yet) understand their cause – and yet, always feel their effect.
They remain with us the most, as these are the parts that once really talked to – will hold our medicine.
I have had many dialogues with the inner child parts to Carly over the last few months.
We are becoming really good friends actually! We lean into each other a lot more these days and can more quickly find new ways to engage with each other instead of running away.
Choosing to stay.
I ask her more now what she needed then that I just could not see or understand how to give her.
It is becoming a beautiful reconciliation. It is a new formula of relating with my whole self – and best of all – it’s a renewal that I can see + feel the difference within the connections with others in my life.
This is one path of embodied healing and connection. Lean in. No matter how many times you have to come back to the dialogue within.
And sometimes those dialogues are more easily accessed in guidance and support.
I am so excited to share new and refreshed healing processes with you all in 2019. Look out for the SoulSpeaks virtual healing hub coming this month!
