There’s a beauty in life that’s obtainable. It’s actually given. The problem is that we fail to receive this gift. A lack of self trust, self respect and love in our own self breeds unworthiness. Unworthiness in peace, joy, happiness and love in ourselves. It’s a lonely emptiness we get stuck in. Your mission is to learn to become unstuck. Build the foundations that allow you to heal, so that you can grow this sense of self love. My mission is to provide the tools for you to build these foundations.
Coming from a space in life where depression was the predominant factor to becoming mentally disabled in my ability to live a normal life, there has been a deep passion for healing instilled in me. Lost loved ones, family mental health issues and personal experiences have brewed the desire for change in the status quo. According to the World Health Organization; One third of the adult population globally suffer from some form of mental health issue at some stage in their lives. It’s human to feel pain, to experience suffering. Yet, when we do, an overwhelming taboo presents itself to us, inhibiting our ability to talk to those around us about it. It becomes annoying, weak, not masculine or over thinking. This comes from other people, but more often, it comes from ourselves. We restrict our own ability to heal and to overcome.
In this space of resistance, comes stress. In a space of stress, healing becomes near impossible. We resist the need to allow for flow. When a thought becomes present, or a feeling comes up, we resist it. We get anxious about being anxious! We literally amplify our own anxiety by being anxious in that space. “Oh my gosh, I can’t be anxious right now” … Sound familiar? It’s an endless battle to fight what can’t be fought. The release is in the acceptance. The 5 step process that needs to be actioned in any phase of healing. Awareness, acknowledgement, acceptance, healing and growth. In this approach, we not only learn to create a more conscious, pre-frontal lobe activity in our brain, but we position ourselves for reprogramming the subconscious.
When you brush your teeth, you start on the same tooth. When you wash your body in the shower, you start in the same place. When you stand from a seated position, you get up with the same movements. These are habits. The neurological patterns in your brain of “whenever X experience happens, I feel Y emotion” is a habit. To change a habit, we have to consciously be in a state where we are making these habitual changes of brushing our teeth in a different way multiple times until it becomes a habit. To change the way we talk to ourselves, and to change the emotions we feel in situations, we need to consciously take action on altering these habits. So we learn techniques on how to be more pre frontal lobe active, so that we are then in a space to become aware of these patterns, and then alter them.
