Most of us have had less than a perfect childhood. We all do the best we can with that, but sometimes it comes back to haunt us. And when it does, we rarely see it for what it really is – an old wound that still needs to be healed.
When we have hurt and pain, when we are not able to achieve what it is that we really want in life, we tend to make up a story about the reason why, but our story is usually BS. It’s our alibi for why we haven’t done what we came here to do. But we can only appease our ego for so long...
KarenTurpinWhy Are We Afraid To Be Who We Truly Are?
Have you ever been at a place in your life when things felt so bad that you knew, with every fibre of your being that you could not go on living like that… that something had to change, and it had to change quickly… because you simply could see no way through and you could see no positive future?
Well I’ve felt like that. On a number of occasions actually…
And just like that it seems, the year is almost over. What did you achieve this year? Did you tick off all of your goals or do you find that you are pretty much in the same place that you were this time last year?
This year has been a year of big energetic change for many people. Some of us have made huge strides forwards on many levels and of course, others haven’t. For some, nothing has changed even though they desperately wanted it to and they feel frustrated that things don’t look any better and that they don’t feel better either.
Have you ever had a sudden flash of remembering… perhaps in a meditation, a dream or moment of absolute knowing… that you are so much more?
Have you ever wondered what’s really inside of you…? What you really know, deep inside…? What you have really experienced in other lifetimes, in other galaxies? And, what you are truly capable of?
I’ve always believed that our work should grow and evolve, just as we do – after all, nothing in nature ever stays the same so why would we…?
But even if we accept that our work will change over time, it’s almost impossible to see what it will actually look like when we haven’t got there yet. How could we know what we will feel like at some point in the future…? and how could we know what gifts will unfold from within us, to be expressed in that exact space, time or dimension.
KarenTurpinWhy A Pivot Might Be Exactly What You Need To Do
You’d probably be surprised at how many emails and nasty comments I have had over the years, from so called “spiritual people” abusing me for charging for my services.
When I’ve written articles (for free) for some well-known online magazines and put my website details at the bottom so that people can find me, I’ve been abused and called money grabbing. Or accused of preying on people who need help.
Have you ever had an experience in which, just when you were about to embark on a new path, this massive amount of fear comes up from nowhere?
Sometimes that feeling is so intense that it stops you dead in your tracks. Gut wrenching fear, that makes you break out into a sweat.
What do you attribute it to?
I know that sometimes in spiritual circles people say that it’s a warning sign that you’re on the wrong path… that you’re heading in the wrong direction and such like.
And have you ever had a healing session in which you’ve felt sick before, during or after, or had chills or the shakes during the session… and people have said to you that it’s because the healer was running dark energies or was “not clear”.
The missing piece for me, came when I worked with a woman who had come for help with something very specific in a healing session.
It became a turning point in my life and has completely transformed my business and made me value my worth in a way that I never did before.
When we continue to evolve and grow, our work will too and I realised in the type of session I was doing with this woman that my own personal growth and development was not recognised. There was no space for my values ...
Many of my clients come to me and say that they just want to follow their heart and do what they came here to do…. Or that they want to make a difference in the World… or words to that effect.
Some simply want to open up their creativity or be the best version of themselves that they can possibly be. But no matter what they want, they usually come to me when they’re stuck and not getting where they really want to be in life.
I know for a fact, that I’ve said exactly the same things myself in the past, so I understand what it feels like to be there.
It seems to be human nature to avoid the things that make us feel uncomfortable.
The mind’s job is to keep us safe, and alive basically… so it stands to reason then that if something is not making us feel good, that it could be a warning that we are in danger and we should probably do something to move away from that danger.
It’s basic instinct… it goes back to primitive days, when our senses were probably more heightened than they are today and we could feel when we were in mortal danger and about to be pounced on by tiger. But that’s unlikely to happen to us today
