When we start on a self-awareness or awakening journey, we often long for freedom and peace. Freedom to not repeat the same destructive patterns, and the peace we imagine having if we could quiet the loud mind chatter and emotional reactions.
However true and heartfelt this longing is, the parts of us that long for peace are often protector parts that have a low capacity to be with high sensations. THEY long for peace because they are overwhelmed, overworked, and lost at how to be with what’s occurring – internally and externally. Their solution is to avoid friction, conflict, and emotions altogether.
In this episode, we explore a different perspective. What if friction is a gift to grow from? An expression of life that you can welcome and learn to dance with – without getting overwhelmed.
