Avoiding your own inner healing
Last Monday, I read a beautiful article of Gulara Vincent. She came up with 4 common reasons why we people avoid our own inner healing.
The article is spot on for me personally. And I think for many of you too, so I decided to share it with my own Goosy experiences and my personal interpretation.
Looking at yourself
Are you looking at yourself sometimes? And by this I mean, really looking at yourself? Do you see yourself?
Because, how scary it is to look at your reflection in the mirror and to see you? You, the beautiful version of yourself completed with the version of you with all shortages of your own being, all defects and all the fears you have? However, to start your own healing, you have to see yourself and to accept yourself in this integral, entire way. Completely. Kind. Without judging.
If you take this step to meet yourself in your own, integral way of being, with everything you are coping with in your life, you are a brave person. It takes a lot of internal power and courage to see the one behind your own eyes.
Then coming to the descision to meet up with all imperfections, all the things which are holding you back in your life, all parts of you which need attention or need to be fixed, might feel horrific. I have seen people who really are too afraid to recover. Too afraid to look in their own eyes and to pick up the armament to fight their own trauma’s. In my opinion, people like this never will bloom like they would have been able to if they took the chances to overcome and fight their own fears.
Are you afraid of loosing yourself?
First of all: by looking at yourself in a friendly, no judging way and by accepting the facts some hard work needs to be done, you will never loose yourself. Also please realise that whatever you might consider as an imperfection, just could be that one specific characteristic that gives your personality a great balance or will give you the opportunity to develop your specific talents.
I have to tell you this from my own and very recent experience: if you take the chance which is given to you by your own life, the chance to heal, and to work on every toughness you are experiencing, you might learn the most important lesson in your life: the opportunity to become the one you really are. The opportunity to grow and the opportunity to meet the real you.
Heading all those experiences, all those parts of you you are afraid of, even habits you preferably don’t want to see, or to know of yourself, is the biggest chance of your life. It is difficult. And it is scary. It is taking you away from the one you thought you were, basically. So you might have the feeling of loosing yourself first.
Coming back to you
The person you will be about to meet, will be your most honest, trustworthy, strong and sincere person you will ever come across in your life. And this one will be with you for the rest of your life, without any doubt. But above all, this one will give you the love and attention you really deserve.
You will meet you.
For myself, I realise, a lot of work still needs to be done. I just started by uncovering and processing old, apparently forgotten, but in the contrary constantly emerging trauma’s in my own life. Trying to meet them, to see them, to break them down and to give them a healty place in my existence.
It is hard. But in the same way, it is beautiful to uncover myself and to overcome my fears and trauma’s. It makes me myself. And I wish you the same healing too.
