I am feeling disheartened and extremely frustrated. We can not run or hide from our feelings. We can not stuff them aside or pretend they don’t exist. However, on the other side, if you are going to be in a space where you dive deep into spiritual and emotional wounding than you MUST have someone that will support you in re-building! I am disheartened because two schools I attended have not offered ways in which to re-build and heal. Classes were offered on how to travel to the depths of someone’s pain but then it’s as if they dropped you in the middle of a cave saying, “find your own way out”. That is NOT healing to me! We need coaches, mentors, and therapist that are willing to journey back with us to light and love!
This is where my coaching work differs from others. I will not leave someone behind and in the depths of their pain without offering or recommending ways to heal, transform, and live a heart centered life again.
When you are in the depths of that pain, when you are asked to go deep, when you are asked to drudge up wounding, you can’t expect someone to find their own way out. Often times if we are left to fend for ourselves the darkness only seems to grow - wanting to just stay in bed, hide from life through addictions, and much more. We were made to be in relation with one another!
I am not saying here that you need to tell someone what to do and how they should heal. It is about coaching, directing, and guiding them to listen to their own heart and spirit’s healing requests. And for those who attend church, going to mass once a week doesn’t always cover it. I know it didn’t for me. I needed weekly support through various means, one of those being creative activities for expressing myself in a healthy way. The others have included seeing a shamanic practitioner, working with my life coach, doing psychic readings, listening more deeply to my body, eating well, finding ways to release what needs to be released, and much more. This is why I have created the Radiant Heart Unique Serving System. It is an alchemical brew of experiences, tools, and healing modalities that have given me serenity and transformation in my life.
You are not meant to go it alone. You are not meant to be broken open without a way to come back to your core self of light, love, joy, peace and ease. Marianne Williamson states in Tears to Triumph, “A society whose entire social and economic system fosters separation from ourselves, from each other, and from the earth on which we live is a society that guarantees suffering.” Living a Radiant life isn’t all roses and butterflies, it is the willingness to stay connected to ones self even in the midst of pain. Living a Radiant life is being connected to another and being willing to meet the other where they are at, to be a witness to their story. And then, to hold sacred space for them to return to love. This is what I feel called to do and who I want to be.
