When we prioritize our healing, the benefits surpass our typical day to day. If we are willing to open our hearts up to the full process, we can radically transform our lives in the most unexpected ways!
So what is involved in this process?
Caring for & protecting our energy is going to be very important, but there is more to one's deep healing journey. The inner world needs our attention!
What is this inner world?
The inner world is the countless experiences that we are having within. It is our thoughts, our emotions, the conscious & unconscious patterns that we find ourselves in & the painful experiences or traumas that we carry.
The inner world runs very deep & is often packed full of experiences & feelings we have tucked away or even outright rejected. It's all of the traumas, fears, worries, judgements, grief & despairs that we have not fully processed or acknowledged.
There are times when we experience difficult or traumatic situations & we may consciously push them aside (perhaps rejecting them as we don't believe we are allowed to or able to feel them fully) or the subconscious mind will work to protect us by burying them in order to move forward. It's a beautiful human survival mechanism that helps keep us safe while we are in the "thick of it" & while we adjust to life's upheavals.
The thing is - these heavy feelings don't just disappear. They exist within us, carefully hidden away in the shadowy parts of that inner world. They take up space & can often cause painful triggers that can be hard for us to understand.
This is why looking within ourselves & being open to acknowledging those shadow aspects is so important! We carry so much that sits heavy, weighing us down & blocking the pathways we wish to take. We are so often held back by this, but if we are willing to traverse the inner world, we can release the heaviness & make room for more light!
How does this bring out our inherent gifts?
Intuitive & psychic gifts are a part of our natural human expression! This is why we see many children with such abilities. However, as we grow up, we receive all sorts of "programming" from the world around us & accumulate painful experiences that end up dimming our light & dampening our natural gifts.
But they never disappear! They simply get covered over with a host of limiting beliefs, patterns of thought & judgements from ourselves or others.
When we are willing to dive into our inner world, truly look at ourselves & work towards becoming more aware of those deep & sometimes shadowy layers, we truly make room for our intuition to expand!
