Emotional healing is probably one of the most challenging forms of healing. In order to attend to who we are as fully formed adults, it’s imperative that we understand our inner child to aid in our healing journey. That’s why we’re talking to the amazing Dr. Peace Amadi, a mental health expert, professor, author, TEDx speaker, TV host, and trauma-informed coach who has helped leaders heal including everyone from entrepreneurs to content creators, to pastors to parents.
Dr. Peace is a coach and cheerleader to the people in our lives that everyone goes to. She explains neuroplasticity and what affects our ability to change, what it means to heal, and how we can incorporate joy into our healing process.

00:01:39.649 --> 00:01:48.600
unbalanced black girl we produce episodes in series so we will take a central topic and we will have conversations about it from different angles for
00:01:48.480 --> 00:01:58.205
six ish episodes and our current series is called modalities of healing so we're questioning what it means to heal in various contexts,
00:01:58.265 --> 00:02:03.499
a big inspiration for the series is the book what happened to you by dr. Bruce Perry and Oprah
00:02:03.496 --> 00:02:12.222
I listen to that book earlier this year and it really changed my perspective on healing and help me understand how significant events in our lives can impact
00:02:12.111 --> 00:02:22.961
to our behaviors and reactions and how we view the world and so this episode and next week's episode actually kind of a little two-parter here will be really inspired by the learnings from that book.
00:02:23.247 --> 00:02:36.537
Our inner child can really influence our outer adult and we couldn't have a series about healing without talking about emotional healing understanding our inner child and how healing can Aid in our evolution.
00:02:36.831 --> 00:02:46.934

I thought I was healed or when will I be healed we will cover that,
00:03:47.778 --> 00:04:00.627
peace welcome to balance flat girl I'm so happy to have you here I have been waiting for you to ask me to be on this podcast like thank you so so happy thanks for having me

00:04:19.457 --> 00:04:29.614
let's do it let's talk you and girl he is yes so we're currently in our modalities of healing series we're examining healing from various different angles and.
00:04:30.098 --> 00:04:41.506
I love how supportive and encouraging and affirming your work is and how helpful it is for all of us who are navigating an emotional healing Journey from you know
00:04:41.413 --> 00:04:50.671
various different points and finding wholeness so I'd love to learn from your perspective what do you consider healing to be what
00:04:50.596 --> 00:04:55.073
does it mean to heal and is healing,
00:04:55.178 --> 00:05:07.811
a destination or is it a process that we embark on yeah you I mean you said it right there in the question healing I mean I'll just start right out the gate saying it's definitely a process it's definitely.
00:05:08.330 --> 00:05:14.419
A journey one of my favorite metaphors actually for healing is picture yourself.
00:05:15.010 --> 00:05:22.755
Walking up a mountain right so you're going round and round you can't go straight up can't go straight up a mountain,
00:05:22.860 --> 00:05:30.641
you have to go round and round and round the hill if you can imagine going round and round the hill.
00:05:31.142 --> 00:05:44.909
You're going to get to a place that looks very familiar right because you can't go straight up you're just going round and round and round so when you have I'm not good with numbers and latitudes but you're going to get to the same spot that looks really familiar,
00:05:44.960 --> 00:05:51.751
feels really familiar can you could have sworn that you've already healed through this but guess what you're higher up.
00:05:52.090 --> 00:05:58.746
Right you bounced back a little bit quicker when you're triggered by something let's say we're talking about,
00:05:58.851 --> 00:06:06.794
some you know traumatic thing that you've been through you're going to feel similar things okay you're going to you're going to have memories,
00:06:06.872 --> 00:06:13.807
but as you're walking up that mountain you're bouncing back quicker you're not as pained
00:06:13.759 --> 00:06:23.052
it's not completely taking over your day like it used to you're a little bit stronger and that's what I like and healing to it's a
00:06:22.905 --> 00:06:33.918
process where we may be triggered by the same things you know that originally triggered when we were first hurt our original wound our original trauma whatever the case may be.
00:06:34.617 --> 00:06:41.804
But every year we are a little bit higher up on that hill right every year it gets just a little bit easier to pass through.
00:06:42.044 --> 00:06:46.368
The moment passed through the trigger to think about whatever it is that hurt you.
00:06:46.554 --> 00:06:54.677
So hearing is definitely a journey it's a journey that we take on a lifetime you know we have our original wombs.
00:06:54.791 --> 00:06:58.656
That happened likely very early on in childhood,
00:06:58.671 --> 00:07:12.618
and it's a lifetime of unpacking and unlearning and relearning and developing better coping skills and the and giving to ourselves what was either taken from us what was violated
00:07:12.570 --> 00:07:14.104
for what we never got
00:07:14.065 --> 00:07:24.528
that is a lifetime thing oh my goodness what a beautiful description and a really helpful metaphor thinking about the way is that we go around the mountain,
00:07:24.571 --> 00:07:27.895
when you were describing that I was thinking of a hiking trail that I
00:07:27.730 --> 00:07:44.261
like to go on that has a trail that kind of zig zags down down the canyon is kind of what I was I was picturing yeah the idea that we bounce back differently with experience and as we climb higher is so so helpful
00:07:44.213 --> 00:07:51.589
yeah and he just said something it actually reminds me another part of it even what we are telling ourselves about this journey,
00:07:51.631 --> 00:07:56.955
is a real key piece of it as well as I really really big on.
00:07:57.015 --> 00:08:10.503
Storytelling on the power of narrative on the power of recreating our story this is probably like a whole other podcast but you know even shifting your understanding of what healing is
00:08:10.401 --> 00:08:22.143
shifting your understanding of what it requires what it takes the fact that it's a journey the fact that it's a lifetime being the fact that you're not quite stick seeing anything but you are getting better
00:08:22.059 --> 00:08:26.545
all right bouncing back if you will since you're using that email metaphor
00:08:26.434 --> 00:08:35.925
understanding that that's what healing is can be really powerful as well because a lot of us think I know I myself have been really.
00:08:36.472 --> 00:08:39.301
Hard on myself in the past because.
00:08:39.424 --> 00:08:48.204
I will memory will come up and I'll find myself crying again I'll find myself sad again when I learned
00:08:48.166 --> 00:08:59.790
right that this is not being weak this is not you know me being unhealed this is me walking up the mountain this is me getting up to a spot that feels familiar but I'm higher up.
00:08:59.959 --> 00:09:05.867
Right and may take me one less day than it did last year to get through it and that's all part of it.
00:09:06.062 --> 00:09:19.757
That in and of itself is really empowering so even just telling ourselves a new story about what our healing look like looks like it is supposed to look like can be an incredibly powerful powerful thing for us to do and I.
00:09:20.124 --> 00:09:29.426
Highly suggest looking at the stories we tell ourselves yes that is so helpful because it can be so tempting to.
00:09:29.558 --> 00:09:37.447
Embark on healing and to have something happen that may remind you of a past experience or may bring up you know
00:09:37.255 --> 00:09:54.632
not the best reaction I know I've had that where I'm like Oh I thought I've come so far why does this still upset me and you can almost want to kind of beat yourself up over it like ah I thought I got over that I thought I was past that and and that reminder that we're still always working towards it and
00:09:54.431 --> 00:10:02.473
that we can always move through our reactions to those things is so helpful and a reminder to give ourselves Grace
00:10:02.470 --> 00:10:11.971
yeah I mean that's that's it right there I mean you've been doing this podcast for years I you you know the gems I'm sure because you have these conversations I've listed into a few
00:10:11.851 --> 00:10:21.189
a few times I'm like this girl knows what it is and that that Grace piece that self-compassion piece I mean.
00:10:22.194 --> 00:10:23.358
00:10:23.419 --> 00:10:32.379
it's everything and what I realized in my work back when I was at they're pissed but also now is a trauma-informed coach is that.
00:10:32.619 --> 00:10:44.172
The self love and the grace and the self-compassion self-kindness the self tenderness is what let me speak specifically about black women,
00:10:44.277 --> 00:10:50.860
it's something that I've
found we struggled the most with is.
00:10:51.335 --> 00:11:04.886
Is that sort of kindness and it's you know that soft tenderness be it because of conditioning how you were raised what we've had to do to adapt you know to survive the environments that we.
00:11:05.018 --> 00:11:06.389
That we've been in,
00:11:06.476 --> 00:11:18.992
I have found I have seen that that self tenderness that self-care that Grace that self Mercy is something that we've had to learn to do and often times.
00:11:19.116 --> 00:11:20.793
Learn a new,
00:11:20.817 --> 00:11:35.152
because we've been in situations with that hasn't been modeled to us and so a big part of my work whether I'm a therapist to coach a friend a sister is really talking through what that looks like
00:11:35.059 --> 00:11:43.074
right to practice self-love in the true sense of the word which is self kindness itself compassion its
00:11:43.053 --> 00:11:50.960
it's I love I love tenderness I love the idea of tenderness you know even physically touching yourself in a tender way,
00:11:50.984 --> 00:11:59.926
there's research behind that being really powerful and really important part of our healing again giving to ourselves what we need.
00:12:00.148 --> 00:12:09.081
I just love that you brought that up because it's a I would say cultural struggle that I'm really passionate about helping.
00:12:09.501 --> 00:12:11.575
00:12:11.473 --> 00:12:23.944
yes yes absolutely I would love to talk about some of the steps that we can take to start reversing that and what that looks like in practice especially
00:12:23.815 --> 00:12:29.408
you know if we may be in a situation where we haven't had that modeled for us or we do still
00:12:29.288 --> 00:12:33.918
sometimes struggle with that kindness to ourselves how can we get started,
00:12:33.969 --> 00:12:39.662
yeah that's a great question so somehow we're really good at this one it comes to other people.
00:12:39.947 --> 00:12:49.888
Hey wait we are nurturers we know how to be the supportive friend you know how to be the encouraging friend we know how to be the writer die friend right,
00:12:49.939 --> 00:12:52.949
it's friendship and enough but you know how to be that
00:12:52.784 --> 00:13:01.375
ride or die girl you know how to be that affectionately know how to be that cheerleader and so part of this work is just
00:13:01.255 --> 00:13:06.074
tired of stepping back objectively what am I doing for these people in my life,
00:13:06.090 --> 00:13:11.350
that I love how am I showing up for them what am I doing for them.
00:13:11.563 --> 00:13:23.926
To them what I am struggling how am I holding them how am I touching them what words am I saying what pardons am I extending them what pardons am I telling,
00:13:24.004 --> 00:13:26.591
them to extend towards themselves.
00:13:26.759 --> 00:13:35.899
Right when we can look objectively at how we are treating our most treasured people.
00:13:36.832 --> 00:13:39.311
We need to then give ourselves permission,
00:13:39.398 --> 00:13:48.556
to do the same thing for ourselves we need to borrow that same love and tenderness and Grace that we give to other people.
00:13:48.814 --> 00:13:58.603
To ourselves and it may not feel extremely natural and it may not even feel like we deserve that.
00:13:59.419 --> 00:14:07.893
And then that becomes a whole conversation right it should become a whole conversation of War why why don't you deserve that same.
00:14:08.466 --> 00:14:14.789
Love and tenderness and Grace and pardon and affection.
00:14:15.101 --> 00:14:27.824
That you are giving other people around you who are also imperfect or whatever the case may be so I like to start with just that awareness of how are we when the people in our lives that we love,
00:14:27.839 --> 00:14:35.332
hurts how are we when the people you know with the people in our lives when they fall short right how are we with them.
00:14:35.473 --> 00:14:40.094
Let's borrow that for ourselves let's try it on for size.
00:14:40.379 --> 00:14:50.330
Let's be our own friend the language that you use there was so good and so helpful because I love
00:14:50.309 --> 00:15:05.192
things that are framed as a practice right like asking ourselves those questions seeing that we have those skills and our other relationships and like as you said borrow some of that for yourself it just reminds me so much of things that
00:15:05.172 --> 00:15:08.487
I practice something that we work at and
00:15:08.277 --> 00:15:22.144
a skill that we strengthen and and seeing compassion towards ourselves is another thing that we can practice we don't have to be perfect at it but we can lead with curiosity and try some of that on is such a helpful way to think of it
00:15:22.096 --> 00:15:31.461
gravity here that yeah as you were speaking I'm also thinking of something that I know that personally has helped me find compassion in myself and that's,
00:15:31.566 --> 00:15:38.060
seeing the little girl version of me so I love talking about the inner child I love.
00:15:38.309 --> 00:15:41.976
Helping people understand that our inner child,
00:15:42.045 --> 00:15:55.767
stays with us throughout our lives so much so and this is you know this is a little bit provocative what I'm about to say but so much so that when we are seeking and cultivating friendship and love,
00:15:55.836 --> 00:15:58.171
we should be seeking.
00:15:58.330 --> 00:16:11.548
People who can log not only our adult self but our child self as well this is how much this child self is so much a part of us and what's really powerful to think about is.
00:16:11.689 --> 00:16:17.265
You know when I say inner child what age comes to mind and it's either theirs.
00:16:17.433 --> 00:16:27.878
Reasons why certain ages will come to mind but for me it's age 11 so age 11 you know is is a time where I remember some specific things,
00:16:27.974 --> 00:16:29.589
00:16:29.676 --> 00:16:39.977
that were really hurtful really painful really sad for me and I still carry it around so for some reason thinking about like you know coming back to the present.
00:16:40.208 --> 00:16:53.310
Thinking about how to get myself compassion how to get myself Mercy how to get myself tenderness when I picture myself at age 11 and I picture what 11 year old piece needs because of what was going on in her life.
00:16:53.523 --> 00:16:56.983
It becomes a little easier to do that,
00:16:57.070 --> 00:17:03.860
you know it's when I'm in a situation in my adult life now where I'm meeting that terrorism meeting that Grace.
00:17:04.794 --> 00:17:14.753
And I can't do it you know for you know me being my big age but it becomes a little easier when I see myself at eleven year old know what she needed.
00:17:14.948 --> 00:17:20.695
Where she was hurting the very small things I would have made a huge difference.
00:17:20.827 --> 00:17:28.094
You know some of that compassion becomes a little bit easier so that tendon tenderness becomes a little bit easier and inner child work.
00:17:28.281 --> 00:17:33.838
Is you know a whole whole thing but that piece right there imagining yourself,
00:17:33.925 --> 00:17:38.393
at a time in your life when you were younger and you know you needed.
00:17:38.777 --> 00:17:47.080
Support you remember it viscerally that's a time that you can have you know that's a an image you can hold.
00:17:47.212 --> 00:17:54.417
And practice giving yourself compassion to to that to that you know younger version of you.
00:17:54.549 --> 00:18:08.253
Grow in that area grow in being able to give compassion to 11 year old or you or seven-year-old you four-year-old you and you'll find that it becomes easier to give compassion to adult here.
00:18:08.530 --> 00:18:20.191
Yes inner child work is something that is so fascinating and what you mentioned about different ages is also.
00:18:20.422 --> 00:18:25.646
Really sticks out to me because when I start thinking about inner child work something that I have.
00:18:25.967 --> 00:18:35.098
Recently realized about myself is that my inner child that needs support is actually my teenage self and I think sometimes we forget that like
00:18:34.906 --> 00:18:47.035
teenagers are children our inner child we also have like a teenage component to that and so I would love to hear maybe if you have some insight there if people need some inner child support around kind of
00:18:46.843 --> 00:18:49.079
they're later childhood as well
00:18:49.049 --> 00:19:01.349
oh my God you're making me want to jump into it so many I'm like a game do it we are but interrater generational trauma just you know the all of that so yeah we're talking about you know pre-birth
00:19:01.229 --> 00:19:07.020
birth to Young adulthood I mean 18 is like the hard-and-fast number but.
00:19:07.252 --> 00:19:16.419
Really I mean this is a developmental thing so what's 18 for someone could be 23 for somebody else could be 25 for somebody else I mean all of that is.
00:19:16.740 --> 00:19:19.732
Like environmental and everything but weird.
00:19:19.891 --> 00:19:30.282
Definitely talking about teen years even young adult years as what we're still forming the time in our lives that is a formative time is all part of this right.
00:19:30.684 --> 00:19:38.258
We have an inner child that has needed things at certain.
00:19:38.705 --> 00:19:44.272
Stages of their life so we have psychosocial stages
00:19:44.269 --> 00:19:59.044
about eight of them throughout our lifespan and I'm thinking of a very specific fear is Erik Erikson I mean this is going way way way back but we do have these psychosocial stages basically where our psychology,
00:19:59.114 --> 00:20:03.402
and what's going on in our social environment are.
00:20:03.750 --> 00:20:13.196
There's a conflict there sorry our psychology is demanding something and then we're in a social environment that's going to give us what we want what we need,
00:20:13.274 --> 00:20:22.378
for not so again our psychology is demanding things of us throughout our lifespan and our social environment is going to give us what we need,
00:20:22.447 --> 00:20:29.184
or not what happens when we don't get what we need psychologically from our social environment.
00:20:29.343 --> 00:20:35.288
Is basically the root of the different psychological concerns.
00:20:35.420 --> 00:20:40.590
An unmet emotional needs that we have right now because we needed something at
00:20:40.461 --> 00:20:48.989
3 and 5 and 7 and 12 and 13 and 15 and 18 and 21 that we didn't get,
00:20:49.022 --> 00:21:05.103
right or we had something that was violated so that's what I'd like the basis of inner child work because that we needed things to develop well optimally and we did not get these things and these things were emotional in nature from our social environment so
00:21:04.929 --> 00:21:11.306
this whole time specifically in this formative time well we're needing things from other people,
00:21:11.330 --> 00:21:19.786
like any any time in our life where we needed things from other people is a time where we can actually be sort of emotionally stuck.
00:21:19.927 --> 00:21:28.725
Which is the basis of inner child work is that we get stuck because we did not get something that we needed to develop,
00:21:28.812 --> 00:21:36.584
in an optimal fashion at this whole this whole time this whole formative time which again,
00:21:36.590 --> 00:21:50.340
02 whenever you stop needing things in people so yeah that's what we're talking about here so we talk about inner child work we're talking about work that needs to be done for a certain time of life and sort of age of life is certain season of life.
00:21:50.463 --> 00:21:53.166
Where you your needs were not met.
00:21:53.433 --> 00:22:03.825
And because it's a developmental time okay because you your psyche your brain your personality is literally forming around,
00:22:03.849 --> 00:22:08.893
what you were given and what you are not giving it leaves an imprint on us.
00:22:09.052 --> 00:22:15.267
So you know the different ways you can say we're stuck at leaves an Indians a mark and then that's what
00:22:15.048 --> 00:22:31.579
human becomes for the rest of our lives as I get trying to give to us what we never got at a certain time in our lives and because just like language right think about how language how much easier it is to learn a language when you're young when when you're an adult,
00:22:31.603 --> 00:22:38.204
it's a similar thing where it's easier to change and make you,
00:22:38.301 --> 00:22:47.999
what they call synaptic Connections in the brain when you're younger it's not impossible in adulthood but it's harder because we don't have that same brain
00:22:47.915 --> 00:22:59.720
plasticity we don't have that same malleability that we did as a child which is why we're so impressionable as children less than questionable as well so all this stuff is working together the psychology the socio everything
00:22:59.492 --> 00:23:07.804
and here we are right just try to make it through life it's just trying to find happiness and love and all of that stuff but we've been been imprinted,
00:23:07.909 --> 00:23:16.149
at a certain time in our life marked especially by things that we did not have so I went crazy so.
00:23:16.659 --> 00:23:22.145
So that is the work that is the work cut out for us is understanding.
00:23:22.853 --> 00:23:29.851
Identifying the times in our life where needs were unmet understanding those.
00:23:30.127 --> 00:23:37.548
Embracing those being compassionate towards ourselves for not being able to be.
00:23:37.752 --> 00:23:52.185
Perfect for lack of a better word and in every way you know understanding that you have shortcomings and weaknesses you have vulnerabilities that compassion comes from understanding that that all counts that all comes from somewhere I tell people we need to stop asking
00:23:52.083 --> 00:23:56.344
ourselves why am I like this and start asking ourselves.
00:23:56.963 --> 00:24:04.077
What have I gone through right what have I gone through to be like this what has happened to me.
00:24:04.605 --> 00:24:12.404
What has happened to me not why am I like this what has happened to me it's a subtle ship remember I talked about Meredith is a subtle,
00:24:12.482 --> 00:24:23.576
subtle shift that involves so much more compassion of understanding that we're not just out here trying to be you know broken and messed up for the head for the fun of it something has happened.
00:24:23.699 --> 00:24:28.293
Right something has happened at these different points in our life in our.
00:24:28.831 --> 00:24:36.918
Childhood our preteens our team something was missed and now with less malleability than we have in our childhood.
00:24:37.221 --> 00:24:42.823
We're trying to fix it and that's hard work it's not impossible work but it's hard work.
00:24:43.000 --> 00:24:56.893
That helps so much because I think inner child work is something that we hear people talk a lot about but it is sometimes hard to understand okay what is it and what you explained with being able to identify.
00:24:57.395 --> 00:25:02.304
What were those times in my life where I didn't get what I needed what was missing,
00:25:02.355 --> 00:25:15.240
and how has that impacted me now and being able to ask yourself those questions and understand how to connect our current behavior to what has happened to us I'm like oh that makes now I understand now I understand what it is and
00:25:15.156 --> 00:25:22.037
and the steps that I can start taking to heal from those things yeah oh you summarize that so well
00:25:21.962 --> 00:25:27.582
I need you in my class that's exactly it and so.
00:25:27.768 --> 00:25:41.779
I'm hoping that you know we have these conversations you know from your listeners to you know when people are out there carrying inner child work what they understand is that this is why this is hard work and why this is Lifetime work because at this point as adults.
00:25:42.064 --> 00:25:48.756
Right you have the compassion and the tennis on the understanding where now it becomes about.
00:25:49.257 --> 00:25:55.066
How can I give myself what I need how can I give myself what I never got.
00:25:55.630 --> 00:26:00.882
You know how can I give it to myself how can I cultivate an environment that gives it to me.
00:26:01.563 --> 00:26:09.020
That's the work but that's also where the power is that we can give to ourselves what we still need,
00:26:09.125 --> 00:26:21.713
what will always need because again there's that imprint we can't talk about modalities of healing without talking about meditation.
00:26:22.052 --> 00:26:29.419
Meditation has been a daily essential for me and my healing journey and as someone who is always on the go I can have a hard time sitting still.
00:26:29.668 --> 00:26:39.051
That's why I have to put you on to my favorite meditation app open open is a digital mindfulness platform combining breathwork meditation and movement.
00:26:39.300 --> 00:26:49.161
No I was introduced to meditation years ago recently I've really lost my way I was feeling really restless I was having a hard time connecting to my practice and getting centered
00:26:49.122 --> 00:26:56.660
I just needed something different and what I started using open I was really able to recommit to my daily meditation practice.
00:26:57.062 --> 00:27:01.944

00:27:11.700 --> 00:27:17.482
I've also started doing some of their breathwork classes on the app and it's really changing my mind about breathwork.
00:27:17.686 --> 00:27:31.048
I'll be honest I personally have not been a breathwork girly in the past it just wasn't clicking and it really challenged me in ways that made me not want to do it but on open the breathwork exercises are just so
00:27:31.036 --> 00:27:36.378

00:28:24.080 --> 00:28:29.520
00:28:29.362 --> 00:28:36.252
So taking myself for an example you know understanding that at 11 I needed.
00:28:36.690 --> 00:28:42.058
Someone to stand out for me yeah you know and someone too literally.
00:28:42.731 --> 00:28:48.846
Be my friend yeah someone to be my friends this is a hard year I go back to this memory.
00:28:49.113 --> 00:28:54.040
I was just talking to my therapist about this planning this my family was planning this huge.
00:28:54.325 --> 00:29:00.090
Birthday party for me you ever want to understand trauma,
00:29:00.150 --> 00:29:13.602
how do you feel about your birthday will tell you a lot about your drama I'll say that that track but definitely tracks you right right it's like this it's some of our birthday responses are Chalmers monkeys but it's like a birthday party.
00:29:13.986 --> 00:29:22.190
Spring cut the long story short you know we put a lot of work into this I'm you know I'm the first daughter of immigrants humble beginning we don't have a lot of money.
00:29:22.367 --> 00:29:32.102
And so I remember my parents spending a lot of money on this birthday party and me already starting to feel guilty because we didn't have no we didn't have this money.
00:29:32.234 --> 00:29:44.642
Anyways nobody came nobody came and I was crushed you know I was I mean that was such a defining moment for me like when I think about the self-talk I have now.
00:29:44.801 --> 00:29:55.103
About you know that I if I can just be real yeah that I still struggle with even though my externals have changed even though I'm grown and I have,
00:29:55.208 --> 00:30:03.538
great family your friends whatever whatever there's two that self-talk of like no one will show up for me you know or I'm not important enough for people to.
00:30:03.967 --> 00:30:09.200
To show up for me I'm not a I somehow I'm gonna.
00:30:09.971 --> 00:30:19.589
You know I'm just I'm just not important just not important enough to people we do without and I'm also trying to say this in a way where I don't get emotional start crying on your podcast stop making cry together okay
00:30:19.505 --> 00:30:31.724
thank you you're so sweet so you know I think about 11 I think about that birthday party among other things that we're going on that year and I think about how I needed to think someone to stand up for me and someone to meet my friend
00:30:31.496 --> 00:30:35.874
someone to basically say you are important you are significant enough to show up for,
00:30:35.898 --> 00:30:44.687
to be around to claim okay that that word like claimed that word belong belong belonging all that stuff is like
00:30:44.684 --> 00:30:51.340
that's steep stuff for me okay the power I have now is.
00:30:52.759 --> 00:31:05.680
Tell myself like to give to myself you know to claim myself to belong to myself to stand up for myself in different ways but also to cultivate Community where I don't have to worry about not belonging,
00:31:05.768 --> 00:31:13.791
right where I don't have to worry about not being stood up for where I feel claimed and people do that in different ways,
00:31:13.834 --> 00:31:27.313
and the thing that you have to realize is that not everyone will do that for you and it's not necessarily everyone's responsibility to do that for you that's why you choose your friends you choose your love you choose your community right because there will be some people who
00:31:27.274 --> 00:31:36.936
we'll be able to create a space and give you what it is you need not everyone is for everyone and you know some of the problems
00:31:36.933 --> 00:31:44.876
the problems we have is that we're putting ourselves in situation or allowing ourselves into situation or allowing people into our lives that trigger.
00:31:45.080 --> 00:31:58.713
Over and over again our deepest blue right and it's like they have their own stuff you doesn't necessarily make them bad people but when you're thinking about you know we use the word compatibility for love and we're thinking about.
00:31:59.214 --> 00:32:08.021
Compatibility it's not just oh I you know I'm a night person I'm a morning person I mean obviously you guys you get me but it's like.
00:32:08.243 --> 00:32:11.496
What do I need in my healing you know what I mean like I.
00:32:11.727 --> 00:32:26.449
I person personality may be compatible but what about our healing Journey yeah like do you have the strength the wherewithal the emotional intelligence to make.
00:32:26.779 --> 00:32:35.415
To help me feel like I belong to help me feel claim and then do I have the same stuff for you you know.
00:32:36.483 --> 00:32:49.684
Yeah so there's a lot of we can be empowered in the type of relationship that type of friendships the type of communities that we cultivate knowing that there ain't no shame in meeting people in our lives
00:32:49.663 --> 00:32:55.211
who can create space when we can continue to heal who can be a part of that healing and I think,
00:32:55.226 --> 00:33:01.341
there's something strange about our culture where everything has to be by ourselves,
00:33:01.375 --> 00:33:15.106
and there's room for that because we need to be able to give ourselves these things too but we don't have to sit in relationships and communities Faith communities love anything where people continue to trigger our deepest wounds look like
00:33:14.977 --> 00:33:21.228
nobody asked for that you know what I mean like we're allowed to be choosy about the people in our lives.
00:33:21.576 --> 00:33:26.260
It's because of our healing because of where we've been wounded.
00:33:27.328 --> 00:33:34.758
Yeah yay we hurt in relationship so we heal in relationship to me
00:33:34.737 --> 00:33:40.339
that's it that's it but first I want to really thank you for,
00:33:40.445 --> 00:33:54.743
sharing your story about what happened when you were 11 and I'm so sorry that that happened and I appreciate you just sharing openly and vulnerably about that and about
00:33:55.217 --> 00:34:05.267
ways that we can be empowered in our healing and I really appreciate the distinction you made between kind of the individualistic
00:34:05.075 --> 00:34:15.061
culture we do have in a lot of ways versus you know being the self-starter for your own healing because there is a big difference like we do have to kick-start our healing
00:34:15.031 --> 00:34:24.630
for ourselves but once we kick started or maybe tip over that first Domino we do kind of we need connection and support.
00:34:25.087 --> 00:34:33.921
Tip over the rest that's exactly right is this there's room and it's important to do the individual work but it's also important to cultivate.
00:34:34.368 --> 00:34:43.607
Community and relationships that honor if you will and what we need you know it's literally.
00:34:44.424 --> 00:34:51.295
Just the opposite of for the compliment the complimenting piece too.
00:34:52.319 --> 00:35:04.916
How things happened in the first place so if you know in childhood you have it on me I met me that remain unmet need comes from a person right it's.
00:35:05.219 --> 00:35:06.716
00:35:07.154 --> 00:35:18.968
Do you think I can think of an instance where it isn't a person or you know or people or family or a system or a teacher or something you know what I mean and so.
00:35:19.388 --> 00:35:27.160
There's a while it's important to give these things to ourselves it's important to recognize oh well.
00:35:27.932 --> 00:35:32.400
I was hurt in to Unity so let me cultivate.
00:35:33.648 --> 00:35:47.163
A different type of community you know I was hurt by somebody who did these types of things to let me cultivate relationships with people who don't do those types of things yeah while I'm also learning to to to to give myself.
00:35:47.827 --> 00:35:52.475
What I need to the best of my ability yeah that's.
00:35:52.652 --> 00:35:59.145
That's I feel like I'm going to be thinking about that for quite some time because I think.
00:35:59.872 --> 00:36:04.772
Hyper Independence is something that's very common.
00:36:05.444 --> 00:36:10.101
Also I'm adding myself right now because I also
00:36:09.963 --> 00:36:22.569
exhibit some of those behaviors and it can kind of be that natural response of people don't support me people don't give me what I need so I'm just going to do these things myself it feels like kind of bad natural knee jerk.
00:36:22.854 --> 00:36:29.258
Reaction and so remembering that it's a Band-Aid but it's not,
00:36:29.282 --> 00:36:43.913
what's going to actually heal that wound but it's also really scary if you had these experiences of being let down putting yourself in a position to be vulnerable like that again even though that's where the true healing happens is really scary.
00:36:45.036 --> 00:36:55.292
All of this is Gary you know and I'm glad that you named that so that people listening can.
00:36:55.515 --> 00:37:04.637
Find Solace if you will that you know if this if this is a hard thing it's a scary thing.
00:37:05.570 --> 00:37:07.500
It's a beautiful day huh.
00:37:08.055 --> 00:37:17.006
Right yeah it's a beautiful thing to truly have what you need to truly find what you're looking for.
00:37:17.345 --> 00:37:26.440
To be whole yeah hard but beautiful and again lifetime lifetime Journey definitely.
00:37:28.049 --> 00:37:32.571
Yeah psychological emotional cognitive spiritual all of it.
00:37:32.847 --> 00:37:44.544
Which is why I love the things you talk about on your cat on your podcast and I'm just here podcast because it's pretty holistic approach you know to do a work and.
00:37:44.919 --> 00:37:56.805
And that's what it requires that's what it requires yeah thank you I appreciate that yeah it's I've learned that a lot of this is so very interconnected.
00:37:57.243 --> 00:38:08.679
And actually I what you just said you know and that integration is kind of the perfect segue about the work being hard but being worth it it's also love to talk about maybe,
00:38:08.775 --> 00:38:17.798
signs when we can kind of tell that the work is working because with emotional healing It's Tricky like,
00:38:17.849 --> 00:38:26.450
physical healing it's a lot easier to tell when something is healing if I break my leg.
00:38:26.969 --> 00:38:37.477
There will be a point where my leg is no longer broken and it's pretty easy to tell when that point is but for those emotional wounds that's a little bit different.
00:38:37.879 --> 00:38:47.920
You know what are some signs where we can look for we can see okay I've made I've made a little bit of progress here I have maybe I have made a lap around this mountain then I've gotten a little bit higher.
00:38:48.358 --> 00:38:57.858
Find such a good question was um I mean there's there's there's some of the obvious things so if we're talking about like let's say like a heartbreak
00:38:57.729 --> 00:39:12.019
you know just you know that happens the first couple days weeks lower if it's me a month you know you're waking up crying going to sleep crying you know um that you feel like you've been hit by a bus I mean it
00:39:11.890 --> 00:39:13.144
third gear Justin.
00:39:13.618 --> 00:39:23.110
Total Physical and emotional disarray I mean you if you think back to like when heartbreak was fresh to now.
00:39:23.521 --> 00:39:35.902
There's an obvious difference there you're not waking up crying and I'm going to save crying whereas you didn't you know where as you felt like you could not go on without this person or you did not feel.
00:39:36.187 --> 00:39:42.537
A just any confidence in yourself without your person I mean I think a lot of us can resonate with.
00:39:42.804 --> 00:39:55.527
Feeling like this is it this is the end is going to be the end of me like I will not find happiness inside of this person to where we're here now you know you've moved on maybe even somebody else you're with somebody else marry somebody else,
00:39:55.560 --> 00:40:03.899
you know so you mean I think that's like an obvious sort of observation that we can point to in all of our lives where.
00:40:04.067 --> 00:40:09.580
The first time something happens I heartbreak happens as an example we are.
00:40:10.630 --> 00:40:19.851
Not well and then we're able to stand on our own two feet again so that's you know very that's specific to like
00:40:19.776 --> 00:40:28.817
incident maybe like an adult and incident in your adult life what you're seeing changes but I think like to talk more.
00:40:29.301 --> 00:40:37.027
Like subtly and like with new ones what I've found and and even have written about is things like.
00:40:37.484 --> 00:40:46.552
Agency things like being able to
make your own decisions and.
00:40:47.071 --> 00:40:55.599
Stand on your own two feet trust yourself more trust your gut more.
00:40:56.082 --> 00:41:02.261
You know see your future experience.
00:41:02.573 --> 00:41:12.127
Freedom from meeting a million different approvals to do what is in your heart to want to do I mean these are.
00:41:12.475 --> 00:41:20.679
Settle but insanely huge strides to make.
00:41:21.316 --> 00:41:26.252
That is a healing thing because the things that keep us.
00:41:26.654 --> 00:41:37.081
Down to people's opinions the things that make it hard to make our own decisions that the thing the things that make it difficult to think about the future and what we want.
00:41:37.403 --> 00:41:42.267
Um to have boundaries to exercise them
00:41:42.255 --> 00:41:49.829
the things that make all of these things hard is a wound yeah is something that has happened.
00:41:50.078 --> 00:41:53.619
To us where we kind of.
00:41:53.733 --> 00:42:05.925
The take-home point for us as let me not do these things so I can keep myself safe like that's how we protected ourselves I'm not going to make any sudden movements I'm not going to make my own decisions I'm not even going to think you know,
00:42:06.012 --> 00:42:12.253
of what I need to do I'm not going to hold my boundaries I'm not going to do any of these things because because.
00:42:12.710 --> 00:42:16.421
You know that's not safe and things could happen to me at all,
00:42:16.455 --> 00:42:29.123
I'll lose my place I won't be long anymore I won't be accepted I won't be able to sound makes on my own two feet so these subtle things that I'm aiming are things that we have difficulty doing because we were wounded at some point,
00:42:29.130 --> 00:42:34.741
and we learned to sort of like shut off these little things about ourselves so that we can stay safe.
00:42:35.377 --> 00:42:40.566
Healing is when you start to
00:42:40.527 --> 00:42:55.158
realize that you can withstand the discomfort right that can happen when you make your own decisions when you exercise boundaries when you stand on your own two feet when you really think about what you want to do in your future like that freedom
00:42:55.146 --> 00:43:03.458
to be your full authentic self to move around the world.
00:43:03.887 --> 00:43:07.842
Here's your full authentic self doing what.
00:43:08.767 --> 00:43:17.421
Is fully authentic to you and important to you that's all healing that's all freedom and.
00:43:18.003 --> 00:43:21.103
Those things deserve to be celebrated.
00:43:22.531 --> 00:43:28.664
Those things deserve to be celebrated I know from me
00:43:29.922 --> 00:43:39.386
To do what I need to do without the approval of a ton of people is huge to me I remember like what a my core wounds is,
00:43:39.410 --> 00:43:49.352
not belong there right and so when you are moving through life hurt because you never belong and then when she do be long afraid that you're going to lose it,
00:43:49.439 --> 00:43:56.716
I mean everything becomes about acceptance and approval and not doing anything that's going to jeopardize
00:43:56.641 --> 00:44:08.833
people's opinions of you because you don't want to be alone again I mean this is my story is I realized that my view I'm seeing my healing my progress my journey up the mountain when I make any decision bigger small.
00:44:16.545 --> 00:44:30.051
Somebody that approving of me that risks somebody not accepting me and sometimes I do it and I'm like Oh my except I'm still accepted and sometimes I do it and I'm not you know somebody disapproves but.
00:44:30.876 --> 00:44:39.764
Regard I am still doing it I the fact that I'm able to risk that what once felt like something I could not.
00:44:41.157 --> 00:44:45.913
Survive is healing for me.
00:44:46.261 --> 00:45:00.020
I'm a different person just by being able to do something that risks a wound that I've that I've experienced before does that make sense it totally makes sense yes and doing those things that risk a wound.
00:45:00.503 --> 00:45:07.357
Can be so so scary like yeah I completely completely.
00:45:07.660 --> 00:45:16.070
I agree and commend that that is a really beautiful thing in such a beautiful sign of growth when you're ready to start taking those small steps.
00:45:16.779 --> 00:45:23.255
I feel like big steps I shouldn't necessarily call them small because they're not always small they're here yeah they're huge step.
00:45:23.819 --> 00:45:32.248
Yeah they're huge steps and it may not ever not feel scary but the.
00:45:32.722 --> 00:45:34.831
What shifts is.
00:45:36.278 --> 00:45:42.825
What shifts is going from I can't to I can't survive this too.
00:45:43.192 --> 00:45:47.083
I can survive yeah right.
00:45:47.972 --> 00:46:00.209
Yeah I don't want it to happen no one's willy-nilly oh I want to be you know wounded again yeah you wouldn't I'm No One's Gonna get there but when you take that small step.
00:46:00.836 --> 00:46:01.847
00:46:03.078 --> 00:46:11.255
Just that's like just that step alone is huge the fact that okay I'm risking some ass here I'm going to do it anyway.
00:46:11.594 --> 00:46:20.734
Nine times out of 10 you're going to be fine but that one time out of ten or nine times out of ten you know what you fear you're going to lose you're not going to be us.
00:46:21.100 --> 00:46:23.696
When that when things.
00:46:24.143 --> 00:46:31.753
Do happen that are hurtful you realize I survive this I can survive this and it just gives you more courage.
00:46:31.948 --> 00:46:36.569
To keep going oh yeah because that's the thing like we underestimate.
00:46:37.115 --> 00:46:43.348
How much we can survive absolutely we underestimate we underestimate our own resilient,
00:46:43.372 --> 00:46:57.769
we also over estimate bad things continuing to happen to us it's a trauma thing so just taking those small steps which are huge steps taking the huge steps that are smaller than that.
00:46:58.577 --> 00:47:02.387
Is a sign that your healing because once upon a time you want to even treem.
00:47:02.691 --> 00:47:11.426
Once you would like nope I'm good where I'm at this is you know what I mean they're the Once Upon a Time you risk.
00:47:11.594 --> 00:47:17.727
With send you into a panic attack yeah the fact that you're even entertaining it is hewn.
00:47:18.067 --> 00:47:30.591
That's so empowering so empowering and I think that that also relates really well to the example that you shared before about heartbreak thinking about the first time you get your heart broken it is like.
00:47:30.868 --> 00:47:40.143
You've never experienced that before so you are just like the world is ending and then once you survive it yeah you don't want to get your heart broken again but,
00:47:40.158 --> 00:47:49.964
if it happens again you're like okay I've done this before and I lived I survived and I will continue after this and it's that that proof.
00:47:50.376 --> 00:47:59.291
That helps you trust yourself again
yeah and I love I love that piece to Les just trust in yourself.
00:47:59.540 --> 00:48:09.220
That's something that we when we get one little me get hurt one of the first things to go out the door I trust for ourselves,
00:48:09.325 --> 00:48:20.446
you know trusting our gut trusting her instincts trusting our decisions testing all of that some of the first things to go it's almost like we blame our not even almost oftentimes were blaming ourselves.
00:48:20.839 --> 00:48:29.475
For being willing that we're blaming ourselves for you know for sure how we were her and so it's like well.
00:48:30.922 --> 00:48:41.646
Even if it's not conscious as a part of this it's like if if I wasn't me or if I thought differently you know I wouldn't be here I wouldn't you know I wouldn't be hurt so it's like well I'm not trustworthy.
00:48:42.130 --> 00:48:44.068
Which is why I think.
00:48:46.082 --> 00:48:54.538
And we believe that being able to trust ourselves again yeah is one of the most.
00:48:55.039 --> 00:48:59.660
Powerful things and went to me one of the most incredible.
00:49:01.269 --> 00:49:09.590
Signs that we are healing I can trust myself and I'm not going to get it right every time but.
00:49:09.857 --> 00:49:17.025
There was actually nothing wrong with me what happened happened you know but.
00:49:17.374 --> 00:49:23.696
It's not because it was me you know it's not because you don't know me like.
00:49:25.350 --> 00:49:31.150
It's it's not because I'm fundamentally flawed you know yeah there's.
00:49:31.750 --> 00:49:35.687
In most situations there's things that we could do.
00:49:36.008 --> 00:49:45.058
Yeah I do better there's lessons to learn yeah I'm not negating that but there's this kind of fundamental trust we can have.
00:49:45.344 --> 00:49:49.740
In who we are how we think how we move.
00:49:50.061 --> 00:49:58.193
Um that's important to have and is unfair when people take that away from us you know.
00:49:58.712 --> 00:50:06.592
Um so I'm really big on trusting yourself and it it owning your mistakes because we all make them who doesn't make mistakes.
00:50:06.859 --> 00:50:16.197
Own your mistakes grow develop don't not trust yourself who can you trust more than yourself.
00:50:17.662 --> 00:50:20.212
You know that's a great question.
00:50:20.560 --> 00:50:28.062
I like that asked myself that a couple times I mean who.
00:50:28.636 --> 00:50:38.361
Who can we trust more than ourselves I mean if you're a spiritual person that I would say the only other person is you know God your creator but outside of that,
00:50:38.385 --> 00:50:49.803
who am I going to trust in my life more than me right what their weakness because we at least when it's with ourselves we know what the intention is right right exactly.
00:50:49.935 --> 00:50:53.863
Oh my goodness peace this.
00:50:54.157 --> 00:51:01.875
