Heart Centred Living

Many of us believe unconsciously that love is limited and conditional. We associate love with “approval”, believe that we come up short unless deemed otherwise, and become invested in proving self-worth through productivity.

We learn to dislike ourselves, and compete with each other. This competition is based on the confusion of wealth, status, and power for love and personal worthiness. Part of trauma therapy is to identify and heal these unconscious beliefs and the emotional wounds connected to them.

Straining against the fear of worthlessness is exhausting. This is a sharp contrast to living for your heart. The challenges that are encountered on the way to achieving the heart’s goals build strength, infuse the struggle with meaning, and never put your personal worth into question.

A Note About Trauma Release Therapies

Emotions can be entwined with traumatic memories. These are often the persistent, negative emotions that we just cannot shake off. We can be unaware that our emotions are linked to trauma because the subconscious mind has stored the traumatic memory separately from the emotion that we feel.

We can feel it, but we are not in touch with the story of that emotion. These memories can be pre-verbal (i.e. before you learned to speak language) and may even go back to past lives. Trauma release therapies should be guided by a practitioner of trauma healing or trauma treatment.

Your Freedom Reality

Fear is an instinctive response. It is one of the most challenging human experiences. The energy of fear scatters our minds, stresses our bodies, and disconnects us from the unique power of the heart. In the state of fear we act and think in ways that we would not do from a higher state of consciousness.

The practices provided in this guide can support your body, mind and heart to resolve the energy of fear. Trauma treatment, healing childhood abuse, and generally healing through trauma release therapies will further liberate the body from states of fear that are encoded in the nervous system and brain. You are the master and commander. Not fear.

The Art of Fulfilment

Whether we believe it consciously or not, we are trained to believe that the greatest success in life is marked by what we have obtained. We associate material wealth and social power with fulfilment, but in fact, the happiest people value the inner gems of generosity, compassion, and integrity. To love others is to love yourself. To love yourself is to love others. There is however no fulfilment in giving when we feel deprived, neglected, unseen. 

how to be happy

We can meet desire after desire after desire, and by becoming efficient in doing so, may finally recognise that the emptiness remains. Many of these desires spring from a false self. They would cease to exist if the wounds of abandonment, oppression, and conditional love were healed. We have not learned to live meaningfully as an expression of happiness, but rather to chase after happiness as an expression of a wounded heart.

When you cut yourself, you tend to the wound in order to heal it. Once the healing is complete, you can focus elsewhere. When we do not self-care our inner lives, we create inner states of disease and cause a kind of self-involvement that is not to our benefit. This state even disables our ability to contribute responsibly to the benefit of others.
