Have you ever felt you just didn’t fit in, a sense of not belonging?
I’ve been exploring the metaphysical and mystical world for as long as I can remember, though I kept much of this to myself, out of fear of being labelled ‘weird’.
As a child, I was wise beyond my years, yet frequently criticised for being a dreamer, having a will of my own, and going ‘against the norm’. Too often, my intuitive and inquisitive nature was unappreciated and so I learned to dim my light.
Did you know it’s discouraged to awaken a sleepwalker? Waking them could trigger a stress response, meaning that when startled the sleepwalker is likely to act in a manner akin to ‘fight or flight‘ response. They may lash out or fall, they may injure themselves or the person waking them. The safe option is to encourage the sleepwalker back to bed.
You know, most people experience their entire life as a sleepwalker.
Bleary eyed, merely surviving, they believe they are embracing life… when in fact they barely exist, unconscious to their own infinite capacity to thrive.
How do I know this? Because what I describe happened to me…
You see, what needed to die within me was my sense of self; the ego mind, the self that had been constructed through routine, programmed reality.
So I asked myself:
“How was I able to attain freedom and self-mastery if I was not aware of my Self; of my own character and feelings.”
I immersed myself in Quantum Healing and understood that each time I put others’ needs above my own, I abandoned myself. The more I trusted the power of the healing process, I realised how far I had disconnected from myself.
This profound realisation is where I found my inner strength, and with that… the courage to honour my own inner guidance.
