We're back! In episode two, we work through some gunk in our own experiences by sharing our ideas around the whole light & love shiz and the ultra-spiritual bypassing that happens in spiritual communities. We talk about the importance of having supportive people in your life, finding one's pack, reaching for those shifts in yourself and trusting that it will propel you into the realms of possibility, surrounded by "your people" that are there for you...to listen, support and love all the parts of you regardless. We get to the grit, unpack, and find our way in this episode.
In our conversation, we talk about:
Wanting to be witnessed when in a vulnerable space and others not listening! Well intentions? Or tangled in triggers, ego, agenda, assumptions. Lack of capacity to witness and hold space. Not letting us be in or openly process while in that shadowy or angry place. And when that shame sets in.
Little trust when sharing ideas/projects, etc. Feeling protective and discouraged when sharing from a vulnerable place. Told it has to be a "certain way." Always receiving uninvited feedback on ways to change or improve.
Coaches. The marketing behind big money coaches and the damage they can do to make a sale. The unworthiness factor is their greatest tactic and how done we are with this!
Claiming a feral process. How one can get caught up in the illusion of perfection. The power of showing up to reclaim our voices, truths and birthrights in a society that continually tells us we are wrong, illegal, broken, and unwanted.
A quote from Women Who Run With the Wolves, by Clarissa P. Estés
“A woman's life may die away in the fore of self-hatred for complexes can bite hard and, at least for a time, successfully frighten her away from coming too near the work or life that matters to her... Many years are spent not going, not moving, not learning, not finding out, not obtaining, not taking on, not becoming. The vision a woman has for her own life can also be decimated at someone else's jealousy or someone's plain out destructiveness towards her family, mentors, teachers, and friends are not supposed to be destructive if and when they feel envy, but some decidedly are, in both subtle and not-so-subtle ways. No woman can afford to let her creative life hang by a thread while she serves an antagonistic love relationship, parent, teacher or friend.”
