Living in a fast paced, globalized society, where services are widely and easily available to us, the illusion of the solution to our problems being one click away from us is often confirmed by our reality. Depending on our upbringing, we often grow up disconnected from our inner world. We learn to silence or postpone difficult emotions and conveniently seek external coping mechanisms to find meaning and heal our scars. We do this either consciously (choosing the best therapist, the most intuitive healer, the best expert in their field etc.) or unconsciously (an the ideal partner, the most successful career, the most luxurious lifestyle etc.)
For good or for bad, but mostly for good, truly healing our emotional scars means really showing up and taking charge of our own healing process, even when working with an expert. We need to truly long to access our wholeness, and be prepared to work hard for it with tons of self-compassion. Without processing our traumas (big or small) and totally owning our process, we end up perpetuating a constantly triggered life, where life happens to us and not for us.
When we realize that we are the only ones that hold the keys to our healing process, stay present and do the work, the rewards can be extra magical! What is magical about it is that we experience first hand that we hold the power to connect with our soul, shift our reality and live with love, trust and purpose.
