Hi there, It has been sometime sinceI've visited this page. it is my intention to write here on a weekly basis, so stay tuned please.
Today's topic is family wounding, anyone out there able to relate. It sems to me that here is where we learn our Value, if we were failed here, we may find ourselves feeling unappreciated, dismised and altogether not Valuable to others and feeling low swnsw of self worth as a result. We go forth in life experiencing a lot of disappointment and believing it is our fault or certainly, "there is surely something Wrong with me ". We may feel ashamed that we are not good enough, after all, this is what those closest to us are demonstrating. You are not alone, although it may feel this way. There may be some comfort in knowing you aren't the only one, but this comfort is not enough to heal ourselves.
We all want to belong, it is natural and healthy to reach out to others, to try and find validation in someone outside of ourselves. Yet, if you are an adult, that validation may come with lots of hard work, or it may not come easily, because we are most likely reaching out from the wounded self, and we may end up with more neglect and shaming.
The Good News is we can turn inward to the vast resource that is our true home, our true Self. This might not feel encouraging at first but as we develop the inner, true Self, this Self will never let us down, honestly. There is the hump of learning to turn inward rather than the learned turning outward. This will take practice, a practice that is well worth it and will keep on giving, I promise.
Remember to breath from your Heart center,
