The negative effect of trapped emotions and beliefs.
There will always be challenges in life. I like to think it means life is never dull or boring. But some beliefs we learnt from childhood and reinforced as adults can limit us, keep us stuck and get in the way of our goals. It can push us to breaking point, cause havoc in our lives and affect everyone else around us.
In truth, our reality is simply a reflection of what's going on inside, it doesn't define who we truly are. But often when we are so involved in a situation, we can't tell the birds from the trees. This is where the help of a coach can help you see the blind spots. The coaching concept really resonated with me since I believed from a very young age that we have the answers within us. I also love the empowering, solution-focused and action-based approach that coaching offers.
Now when I come across challenges, I seek the hidden lessons within, but it wasn't always like that. Life has not always been easy. My father died when I was just a toddler so I hardly saw my mother as she worked day and night to provide for us in another city. For many years we had no home of our own, slept on floors or shared a small room with others.
It took me decades to realise just how much my upbringing and trauma from childhood truly affected me. Despite the success I had in my career, personally I was on a self destructive path. I tried counselling a few times but simply couldn't bring myself to talk about what was really going on. Inside, I was still just a scared lonely little girl. Scared to open up. Scared of being judged. Rejected. Abandoned.
But I knew the only path to freedom was to face the fears that kept me small and release the trapped emotions that was causing chaos in my life. I made a lot of progress through self development but it wasn't enough to truly understand the meaning behind my actions. I tried therapy three times which lasted one or two sessions. I told myself it was not for me, that it was a waste of time and money. Decades passed and it turns out, the excuses were only a small part of it.
In 2019 I had a coaching client who was diagnosed with chronic anxiety and depression. Although we made progress I prayed I could help him and future clients at a deeper level, to quickly and effectively deal with the past in order to move forward easily. Not long after, a series of coincidences led me to RTT.
It was literally the answer to my prayers and as it turns out, RTT set me free. All those times when I struggled to speak, berating myself as tears rolled down my face, finally made sense. At a deeply relaxed state, I was able to find my voice, finally let go of the trauma and move forward to help others achieve Freedom from within.
