The Pain in ‘Playing it Safe’

Safe.. hmm ‘playing it safe’ a medley of words put together to enhance one’s own sense of safety.

What does all of this mean when we unscramble the thoughts that are so unhelpful within our egoic perception.

The other day, I experienced an intensity of gut-wrenching pain. I experienced dread in the pit of my stomach I hadn’t felt for a long time. Then the thought came in, “I’ve done something wrong? I’m in trouble.” And then, “How can I fix it?”

This pain came from deep within and was triggered by social media. Someone I knew unliked my page, and another unsubscribed to my mailing list. I know! How could that cause such an extreme reaction, but it did.

After much searching, I had created all sorts of scenarios and concluded that I hadn’t done anything wrong. After all, I’ve also unsubscribed, and it wasn’t personal. So where was this coming from?

And then, I felt it! It was the wounded child crying out who wanted to be loved and always felt she had done something wrong. In desperation, this child did what she could to fix it, but it was never enough.

Then, I realised I had often ‘played it safe.’ Others would differ because I have indeed been on some adventures and taken many risks. But, there was always something inside holding me back, something that kept me small, something that created an empty void, isolation, and aloneness from the rest of the world.

Connection and love were all this child wanted but stuck in her belief, she continued to find a reason to confirm that.

The adult and wise woman I am, knew this was not the case and my heart burst open in gratitude for this strong reaction which alerted me to the fact this poor child was still in pain. So, I sat with her for a while, talked to her, loved her through our tears, and something beautiful and profound happened. The tears turned into tears of joy; they sparkled and danced as my body moved with grace. Together as one, we laughed and giggled and felt whole once again.

I’ve come to realise no matter how much work we’ve done on ourselves. It is in the truth of our emotion that invokes further insight into our subconscious beliefs. Playing it safe is a metaphor, yet it is so true because the subconscious will create parts to keep us safe. At that time, it was important, but as the child grew and experienced life, those reasons were no longer valid, and instead of supporting her growth, it held her back in the past wounded empty state.

The personality ego is a funny thing for it often creates an unreal perception. We watch others often making judgements as they watch us doing the same. There is so much more depth in each of us.

BREATHE my friends, STOP AND LISTEN, FEEL your emotion, and ALLOW IT TO SPEAK TO YOU, then you may heal and create from a conscious and aware state of being.

If you need support to break-through old sabotaging beliefs. Connect with me through my website and see how I may help through one of my services.

Love you, until next week,

Clarity is a Great Builder of Confidence

Clarity is a great builder of confidence. How do you feel about that statement? Does it resonate with you? Have you found when you are clear your confidence is never in question? In fact, it may not even be on your radar.

In the past few weeks, I’ve recognised that many of my clients have felt confused, overwhelmed and lacked confidence in their decision making. They expressed feeling anxious, stressed, irritable at times, and generally unhappy.

As we sat together and I listened intently to their story with an open heart. I noticed as each client processed with greater understanding, their body would sit up straighter, shoulders no longer slumped and what seemed difficult, overwhelming and obstructed prior, was now replaced with possibility and options.

Once again, the light shone through as I witnessed their breath drawn deeper into their body. Less in primal flight and fight mode, there was an expression of safety and being heard.

Each day, I’m thankful to be a ‘wayshower’. I’m in awe of my clients and students as they share with courage their most profound pain and desires. You inspire me. You see, I see YOU. I feel your soul and support you to reconnect with the wisdom that is within.

Remember YOU HAVE THE POWER.

Clarity IS a great builder of confidence, and it’s okay to share and have someone else create a sacred space for you to be held and nurtured. You ARE awesome and unique, and I’m privileged and honoured to guide you.

Interestingly, as I sit here writing, I feel exulted as the passion rises for my purpose to restore hope into the hearts of many, and I do this through inspiring people ready for transformation through deep healing, spiritual teachings, psychological insight and of course, the written word. You see, I can relate on many levels because my journey has not always been an easy one, and although heartbreaking at times, and others magical and profound, the benefits empower me to listen and share strategies from a place of knowing.

If you are interested in gaining clarity and building your confidence, then feel comfortable contacting me for an appointment. I work both in my healing sanctuary and through skype and zoom. Remember, energy flows where your attention goes, and I can hold space no matter where you are in the world.
