In my signature "womb rooms" women are healed from emotional pain, procrastination, unworthiness, shame, silent screams, stillborn dreams, broken relationships, past trauma, faith fatigue, and limited thinking.
I reflect on a recent story one of our Women on the Grow Malibu reTREAT sisters shared. She stated she was born in prison during her mother's incarceration. I thought how some people, like her, are born in a storm and some people have personal storms later in their life. Some people survive and talk about it. Some people survive tough times and remain silent. Some people deal with unimaginable pain. For some, their storm has left them in a 1,000 pieces trying to start all over again. For some, their storm is raging now out of control ... while some are thankful they have a testimony.
The next time you look at someone’s life covetously, or feel your life is inadequate compared to their life…remember you may not be able to endure their experience. You may not know the cost of their alabaster box. So, while someone sits before you looking calm like an ocean on a sunny day, think about this. The ocean is vast and wide. One part of the ocean can be calm while another part of the ocean could be experiencing a colossal storm. It’s happening on the same ocean.
The voice of shame and low self-esteem say, “I’m not good enough.” “Who do you think you are?” I’m not worth it.” “I’m not lovable, beautiful, smart, good, capable, etc.”
Are you frustrated and feel your progress of healing from a broken relationship, financial setback, job loss, trauma, or illness, depression, or setback in your life is not happening fast enough? Your breakthrough and healing are NOT linear. There will be ups and downs. In order to heal, you have to become comfortable facing your uncomfortable reality. Don’t depress your feelings ... express your feelings. Let the feelings come. Don’t run, hide, deny, numb, or minimize your feelings. There will be moments of feeling stagnant and triggers that may cause you to feel defeated or fearful.
The support I offer through my one-on-one sessions, signature "womb rooms", and books which are curated to inspire others to find the hope, courage, will, and strength to discover the depths of their faith, courage, wellness, self-awareness, abundance, joy, and resiliency they never knew they possess.
I pray you learn to create a sanctuary within yourself, not a prison. Create inside yourself a place, a knowing, a safe place where the pain, anger, grief, and world news cannot disturb your peace.
It will not be easy, but it is possible. You can’t be rushed, forced, or manipulated to start or stay with it.
Your mind can come up with a lot of ways to protect you (e.g. blame, avoidance, denial, feeling helpless, ashamed and guilty, fake smiles, minimization, isolation, busyness, suppress or medicate your feelings with food, drugs, alcohol, sex, shopping, gambling, helping others).
You have to be ready and hopeful. You must feel worthy of healing. One day you will thank yourself for not giving up. Ready, set, grow! Stay in the light. – Jewel Diamond Taylor
