When we’ve done a lot of work on a pattern or reaction, just to have it show up again and again, it’s easy to feel disheartened and even desperate. What we might not have recognized yet is that this is an opportunity to go deeper into our healing.
In our second session, Kate connects with a protector for the first time and sees a completely different side of it. A side that’s afraid and hasn’t processed the emotion of shame.
In this first session, we explore her intention and desire. What it is that she longs for and what she’s experiencing now that she wants to change. We also look at how the wounded part has been treated by her when she’s directed her attention away from it, again and again.
After eight months of live coaching on the podcast, it’s time for the last session with Tina. Such a special episode where we look back at the changes she’s experienced and give room for the emotions around ending the sessions to be felt.
Your mind and awareness can only take you so far on the road to self mastery. In a sense, it’s hanging out in the safe surroundings of the actual dojo. At one point you’ll be invited into the arena of emotions, nervous system and embodiment. You’re invited to merge the spiritual and the human.
I can’t stress enough how important it is to recognize your survival response and make nervous system regulation your best friend when you do inner work. Why? When you do deep inner work you’ll visit emotionally stressful moments in your life and move past your usual protective mechanisms of numbing out, distracting, etc, and actually meet with the sense of hurt and unsafety.
We explore the dynamic between a protector part, the little girl and another part that resents the protector part. Tina discovers that they have a lot of similarities with how her mother and father sounded growing up.
Do you remember the conversation I had with sex coach Erika Alsborn in my podcast back in 2022? This past month, I had a conversation with her about all things self mastery, transformation and embodiment on her podcast: Yes Please.
