I have been organizing, cleaning...letting go of stuff. AND getting ready to co-facilitate the "Letting Go" workshop on Vancouver Island starting this Friday, the 20th.
I came across this quote, from a former client while I was organizing and preparing.
"I worked with Zoe earlier this year on an issue that has plagued me for nearly 20 years. Her gentle, effective approach allowed me to work through it. Her hypnotherapy technique brings you to a more relaxed state and helps greatly with the therapeutic process." M.S.
Why do we wait to do our deepest healing work? I so admire many young people who jump in, uncover some of their deepest wounding and begin their healing process. A process that will last a lifetime. And, I know for myself, it took me many years to recognize the depth of the wounding and the current effects that wounding was still having on my life, my work, my relationships.
So why do we wait?
Fear is probably the first thing we think of. What will happen if I......?
Shame at what might be revealed: what if other people knew me at my deepest self? They would not like me.
Forgiveness: forgiveness of the self. Forgiveness for the times we hurt or wounded people, ignored what was in front of us. Acted out of meanness.
Worry about what others might think of me, if my outside persona or mask that I wear is not congruent with who I really am inside.
And sometimes although we are ready and willing, we are not met with the right combination of skills and intention so that we can really dig deep into our issues with a feeling of safety, the surety that whoever is guiding us will 'have our back', not judge, co-create the right container for healing to happen.
I started my deepest healing in my 50's, mostly because I had not found the right combination of safety, encouragement and skills which would allow me to really dig deeply into my wounds and heal. I found that with my teachers at The Wellness Institute and that is why I continue to train and study..and heal myself, with them. Twelve years later.
So...why are you waiting? What are you waiting for? Consider registering for the Letting Go Weekend February 10, 11 and 12th in Olympia - in my home! You will have a 100% chance of uncovering, healing, letting go in a safe, sacred container co-faciliated by myself and the amazing Lori Austein, a skilled and gentle gem!
