If you’re anything like me, then you know what it feels like to get broadsided by an emotional wallop that feels like a punch to the gut.  It’s when we get triggered by our worst fear.

Here’s why it feels like a punch to the gut (plus a heartache! UGH!)

  1. It stabs us in an old wound
  2. It’s an attack on our self-esteem
  3. It’s poking our worst fear or pain
  4. It’s a third chakra issue AND a heart chakra issue

Let’s break this down a bit further.  

#1  It stabs us in an old wound.

I used be utterly convinced that there was something “wrong” with me.  I had no idea what it was or how to fix it.  It felt like it might be that I was basically, fundamentally evil and bad.  I truly believed it was unfixable.  I thought the best I could do was manage it, hide it, and cover it up.  That was my “old wound.”

Because of that old wound, when someone got mad at me or was mean to me, I automatically interpreted it to mean that my “something’s wrong with me, I’m bad” was showing.  Since I didn’t have a belief that I could do anything about it, it was like a sucker punch.  I would feel just awful.  I’d want to either explode or implode.

#2 It’s an attack on our self-esteem.

Being reminded that I wasn’t good enough, and that I was unlovable, all because there was something wrong with me that I couldn’t fix!  I tried my best to hide it, but I couldn’t do it well enough.  I would feel awful.  

#3 It’s poking our worst fear or pain.

I think you get it by now.  Being reminded that the worst thing about me was something I couldn’t do anything about was a nightmare.  I felt ashamed.  I felt angry.  I felt hopeless.  Despair was a hole I was falling into.

#4. It’s a third chakra issue AND a heart chakra issue

Third Chakra, solar plexus issues are all about our perception of ourselves.  When we don’t feel good about ourselves, that’s where we feel it in our solar plexus – knots in the stomach and other sensations.  That’s why it feels like a punch in the gut.  I used to get sick to my stomach.  When our feelings are hurt, we can feel it in our heart chakra.  I’d drown the feelings with whatever I could find because it didn’t feel like there was any other alternative.  

I was managing and coping with those feelings and experiences.  Those are just some of my experiences of playing small by living in a loop I believed I couldn’t get out of.  

That’s why I started offering my Stop Playing Small Retreat.  Those feelings were so painful, and now I know how to heal the root cause so that we never experience it again and that’s THRILLING to me.  

It’s literally mind-blowing to realize that so many emotional and mental problems that we just cope with can actually be eliminated and healed.

When we do the healing at the level of the mind, then our feelings don’t get triggered anymore because of the core issue is resolved.

When we do the healing at the level of the mind, then we save ourselves and our families and friends so much heartache because we don’t drag them into our painful patterns anymore.  

AND, what’s so magnificent is that by doing this work we can literally help everyone around us.

The healing spirals out to those closest to us and those closest to them.

We become a vortex of healing.

I’ve seen so many people transform their families through doing this work.

The healing ripples out in the most miraculous ways.

Managing and coping with our feelings and situations, as well as settling with what we don’t like, that’s playing small.  

It’s a choice.  

A Course in Miracles tells us:  “Yet you are not sufficiently vigilant against the demands of the ego to disengage yourself.  This need not be.  The habit of engaging with God and His creations is easily made if you actively refuse to let your mind slip away.  The problem is not one of concentration; it is the belief that no one, including yourself, is worth consistent effort.  

What I know is that we CAN do this work and doing it together makes it easier and more fun, which leads us to keep going and not quit on ourselves.

I used to quit on myself almost every day.  I’d get discouraged and I was “out.”  And then I’d find a way to crawl back to feeling willing.  Once I started to really partner UP with Spirit each and every day, life got easier.  The journey got more focused.  My resistance faded.

I no longer have my worst fear. Truly.  It’s gone, and those triggers are gone and I an’t imagine that I’d ever feel that way again.  PHEW!  I never believed that was possible for me – just the opposite, I thought it would be impossible, but it wasn’t.  Miracles are possible.

This is why it’s now my Joy to be able to offer sustained support.  WE CAN DO THIS!  Now is the time.
