Here’s the truth: you may be wasting your time, money, and energy on healing if you’re not aware of or taking actions based on your barriers and bridges. The best-fitting homeopathic remedy, the “perfect” diet, the most positive mindset can only do so much for a person who subconsciously believes they don’t deserve healing, who doesn’t move their body, or who is unaware of their trauma patterns. I know first hand how hard it is to shift our shit. But when we show up over and over again with awareness and intention fueled by that awareness (as well as a big dose of self-compassion) HEALING HAPPENS.
Also: It’s important to know that becoming aware of our barriers and bridges isn’t often a solitary or cognitive process. We are beings largely driven by survival instincts and a fundamental need for safety, with a lifetime of conditioning and embodied memories neatly packaged away below the surface (to make things extra complex). Therefore, many of our barriers and bridges are beyond our conscious awareness…deep in our body in our cellular memories.
But please don’t be discouraged. This awareness alone is a bridge.
It does highlight why healing partnerships are important: practitioners who can co-create a container of safety and awareness, who can go with you below the surface to identify what’s really getting in the way (hint: it might be something your mind is not conscious of), and who can support you in building bridges around those unconscious barriers.
