What the World Needs Now is LOVE Sweet LOVE
Would you enjoy transforming your judgments into self connection and compassion?
Self-empathy is a process that helps us connect more deeply to ourselves and take self-responsibility for our experience.
When I am triggered and offer myself empathy, I observe my thoughts and judgments and connect to my feelings and needs contained within them and instantly feel relief. I ask myself what am I telling myself about what happened? What am I feeling? And what are my unmet needs? When I approach my emotional pain with gentle, curious compassionate presence, and open hearting allowing a shift begins and I feel relief.
As I invite myself to dig deeper inside, remembering the other person is not the cause of my pain. This opens me up into an inner spacious allowing and moves me out of blaming/judging the other person for my experience. Self Empathy brings me back home to me. I begin to feel more self-connected, relief and relaxed. I give myself empathy daily as it is simple and yet eminently effective.
As I soften and relax, I have more willingness to ask myself, what need were they trying to meet? I invite their need into my heart and let it impact me. This shifts me into mutual connection and understanding. If I am still triggered, than I give myself more empathy.
Empathy rewires your brain with new neural pathways and resets your nervous system to receive care, warmth and love.
Would you enjoy?
- More self connection when triggered
- Increasing your capacity to respond from choice
- Taking more responsibility for your reactions
- Transforming habitual responses to life
How often do we slow down and really listen deeply to another? Usually we can’t wait until the other person stops talking so we can talk. This is a different way of showing up in the World.
If the other person is in pain and I hold them in empathetic presence as I journey with them. I am not guiding them. I am being with them. It’s an energetic quality of connection and curiosity as you explore what they are feeling and wanting. It’s more about heart centered presence than it is about the words.
When we experience being held in this deep way, a quality of connection emerges in our hearts.
This is a TRUE gift.
