Is This You?
Are you someone who is wanting to heal from the distress of painful childhood experiences that continue to replay themselves in your adult life? Do any of these situations seem familiar?
You are a middle aged deeply inspired creative person with a humanitarian spirit who wants to create change in the world through your love for beauty and spiritual principles. You know your message is about love, peace and bringing more light out into the world, but your body goes weak at the thought of being criticized, ostracized, and ridiculed. Your deepest wounds are now triggered, and the childhood pain comes flooding back where you collapse and end up neglecting and dismissing the dreams of your true mission.
You have just met a new business partner, and you are excited about a joint venture together that could accelerate your career to higher levels. You are enthusiastic at all the new possibilities that await you when all of a sudden you freak out because what looked like an inspiring and creative strategic union that your dreamed would bring ease, inspiration and freedom may now somehow turn into a nightmare of a power struggle of being manipulated and controlled by your new partner. You panic at the thought of sliding into that feeling of being powerless and losing everything.
You have fallen deeply for someone, and you seem to have met the right one. Yet, you’re up in the middle of the night worrying that this could turn into another disastrous relationship, and you now fear opening your sensitive heart and being vulnerable yet again with another human being.
You are a healer and coach within the healing profession, and you feel competent enough in helping others transform core difficulties and adversities, yet, because you still have unresolved issues of your own, this creates a disconnect of uncertainty about your actual talents and expertise, and you withdraw into guilt and feeling like a fraud.
You are about to exhibit what you feel is labour of love that you have been working on for what seems like ages. And just before you need to present it, the negative inner voice of judgment and self-doubt escalates telling you that it is crap. It’s suddenly worthless in your eyes, and you imagine the probable negative scenarios and criticisms that cause you freeze into not going public with it.
