Last night I awoke with a jolt just as a car was slamming into me in my dream.
A few hours later I jolted awake again as a driver tried to ram into me with their little red car. I ran and ran, in that horrible dream speed where you can’t really move at all (pure hell that feeling is!). I finally found solace under a pure white desk. I thought I was safe…until the eye of the driver appeared in a teeny glass triangle in the desk.
I could not escape.
Thankfully, I woke up at this point. The dream-adrenaline kept me awake for a while, and I used the time to reflect on why I felt so fearful, so upset, so helpless in this dream.
You see, I knew the driver. I knew the person who was after me. And in real life, this person represents something in my life I *KNOW* I need to deal with. A something that I have been using all my resources, conscious and otherwise, to avoid. Gotcha Universe. Message received.
HOW ABOUT YOU?
What about you? Where in your life do you *KNOW* you have something you need to address in order to be fully free to create the life you want? Maybe it’s a relationship that needs mending or severing. Maybe it’s a childhood story that is desperate to be heard. Maybe it’s an inability to say no. Or a lack of confidence that keeps you from taking risks you’d love to take. Or money fears. Or anxiety. Or depression. Or overeating. Overdrinking. Over-anything.
When you are ready to dive in and address it, you’ll know. Maybe this post is stirring a truth in you – the truth you know in your gut of that thing you are avoiding.
I’D LOVE TO HELP
When you’re ready, I’d love to help. I am really good at being with, helping and guiding people through the difficult emotions and situations they’d prefer to avoid. (One client has referred to me as the “emotions whisperer,” which I consider a huge compliment!)
As an Enneagram 4, I am deeply aware of emotions. Even the hard ones that we all want to avoid (and we have fabulous strategies to do so, don’t we?).
I feel them.
Live in them.
Want to work with them.
The Enneagram 4 is nicknamed the “deep diver of the psyche,” and being able to make that dive is essential to fully living into your magnificence. You don’t have to live there all the time (thank goodness!), but most of us need to spend some time taking care of the hurts, pains and vulnerabilities of the parts of us that live down there.
In my work as a therapist and coach, I never push anyone further than they are ready to go, but I also do not let people off the hook. With a gentle and compassionate style, I assist people in connecting with their “Littles,” the parts of us that hold our deepest vulnerabilities.
When those Littles are seen and acknowledged, loved and brought into the fold of your soul, whole new possibilities open up for your life.
So, if you know deep in your soul…if your intuition keeps tapping you on the shoulder and saying “you know you have to take a look at *this*… I am your gal.
If this is stirring something in you, I encourage you to explore “Personal Awakening,” my 6-month program designed to educate, provide tools, and do in-the-moment processing of the REAL stuff of your life.
The results you can expect are a sense of inner freedom you may not have felt for years, new tools to help you manage relationships, career choices, and learn how to genuinely practice self-compassion, which opens a whole new world of possibility for what you draw into your life.
This program is for people who have wondered if therapy is the answer, but can’t seem to quite pull the trigger on seeking a therapist. This is a coaching program (NOT therapy), but it does take you inside yourself, your emotions, and we keep it real in terms of what’s holding you back from <fill in the blank desired thing in your life>.
What we won’t do is process past stories. We may talk about them for context, but the true processing of past stories (trauma and crisis) is the work of therapy. However, we may work with the parts of you that hold the pain of past story.
The 6-month program has six “Destinations” that we will wander through. They include:
- Parts Work
- The Void
- Ceremony and Ritual
Check it out here if you’d like more details on these “Destinations.”
If this is appealing to you, hit me up for a quick phone call (you can simply reply to this email). We can assess if this program is a good fit for you based on what you are hoping to accomplish.
