Have you ever found yourself paralyzed by indecision and emotion? Most of us have and, to be honest, found it terrifying! As I have been moving through the world, I have noticed a lot of people who seem to be frozen in that state. Something happens and they shut down. The problem is, no one can live that way forever. How do you move past such a state?
The first step in creating a conscious change in any life is to realize that you are uncomfortable. Now, I realize I just told you that to get past being numb from overwhelm you need to feel. That sounds both awkward and unrealistic, but give me a few moments and trust that there’s a way forward. Emotional overwhelm usually starts with a particular emotion overwhelming a person. So, let’s start by separating our emotions just a little. It may be helpful to think about some positive emotions to begin with. Think about a funny joke. Did it hurt or feel uncomfortable to laugh? No? Ok, so joy is ok, at least in small amounts. Move your way into another emotion, maybe curiosity or delight. Find little pieces of emotion and carefully test them out, like putting a toe in the water. This is a gentle way of easing yourself back into emotion. You allow yourself to begin to understand that not all emotion is going to put you at risk!
Give yourself a little compassion and a little room to breathe. Each step you take needs to be accompanied by mindfulness of who you are and what you have lived through. This is not an invitation to be a victim! Just because you have lived through certain experiences does not give you the right or privilege to spew toxic emotional sludge on anyone else around you!
Once you have begun to feel, it’s time to take stock of what hurts and why. If you don’t address the causes of your emotional overwhelm, you will suffer from it and find yourself back in that state again! Do not go looking for the most tender parts of your mental or emotional state and drive spikes through them! Instead, breathe and move slowly and carefully. Can you find the space to look at your wounds with compassion? Can you find the holes and the shrapnel in your boundaries and be willing to hold space for yourself?
This is what I do. As a Life Coach and Energy Healer, I provide space for people to heal. I help them recognize where the wounds, the booby traps and the triggers are. In being able to see patterns, I then help empower people to heal their wounds, disengage the booby traps and diffuse the triggers. You don’t have to live in a numb zombie state for the rest of your life. You don’t have to live miserably, just barely surviving. In order for you to change, though, you have to realize that change is possible. It can be one of the scariest moments of healing, to take on the power of personal change. That moment of realization is often almost ecstatic, though, as you suddenly shift from fear to possibility.
I can not emphasize enough how important it is for you to come alive and enjoy your life! Improved quality of life is what I offer. It is not for the weak of heart and it is not and easy path. It is one of the most rewarding challenges that an individual can move through, though. I love what I do. I love being a witness to a moment of enlightenment, and the best part is I’m not a fly on the wall when it happens! I’m not hiding in secret, hoping no one notices what’s happening. I’m with them, right there in the moment, celebrating success and being amazed as a soul unfurls before me!
I hope you have someone in your life who is willing to help you grow and unfurl in magical and magnificent ways. If you need a little help, a guide, a Healer…come find me. I’m waiting and I would love to see what amazing discoveries we can make together within your reality!
Light’s Blessings to you all!
