Every time I sit in circle with women or take on a new client, I hear many of the same longings. At the core of who we are, we actually desire similar things in our lives.
And what I know to be true is that most of the time, it is the lens in which we are navigating through the world (our beliefs, conditionings, past hurts) that directs us in our choices. So, if you are finding yourself not experiencing what your heart is envisioning, it is most likely because of something that happened in the past that has imprinted in your body or mind. Although you might now be 27 or 45, your inner child is still wounded and her pains haven’t been addressed.
For a moment, imagine how you felt as a 14 year old.
Pause and reflect on how you entered “womanhood”… perhaps feeling different, misunderstood, fearful of intimacy, worried about being liked?
Think about how you felt around your friends and what you felt like in your body.
Have you taken time to address some of these issues and/or acknowledged their presence?
If you answered no, then my sister, those heart aches are still informing your present day life.
What if you took a moment and focused on your 14 year old self within?
In this month’s episode of WomanRising TV, I am inviting you to “reparent” your inner adolescent. I believe that taking time to speak to your 14 year old self can actually shift how you are interacting with your children, your partner, your boss, your friends.
