We all have had experiences in our lives,
where we were not seen, heard and loved fully.
It’s these experiences, particularly in childhood, that can trigger us to protect ourselves by armoring or closing our heart, so that further or future pain, disappointment, rejection and sadness is not felt.
The process below allows us to connect with these challenging memories, in a particular compassionate and loving way, that begins to release that method of protection: the copying mechanism that was created at that time, in service to clearing the ways you’re holding yourself back through protection and separation.
Step by Step Guide for Self-Healing Process
⏰ You will need:
- Pen and paper
- A safe, quiet space where you will not be interrupted. Turning off your phone, and letting people in your vicinity know that you’d like to be undisturbed can be helpful.
- At least 30 minutes, if you have 60 minutes…awesome
1. Describe what’s challenging.
Describe what’s challenging or limiting in your life.
Describe it in as much detail as you can, and allow any emotions about it to come up as you share fully. This can work for almost any human limitation you find yourself WANTING to let go of, but feeling out of control in the moment to choose. For example: not speaking up / being defensive and bitchy to people / giving up, not believing in one’s self / not being able to follow through / being sarcastic and critical. It can also work for any challenge that’s going on.
2. Describe how you feel.
Describe how you feel, inside of yourself.
Focus on how you feel. You might feel many things, but focus on the strongest, and most challenging feeling. You might be aware of continuing to reconnect to wanting to describe or explain the outer challenge, but continue to come back to describing how you feel inside. Starting with “I feel…” can be a great start.
3. Allow an earlier time.
When was an earlier time that you felt this exact way?
Describe that situation and let the ‘Younger You’ share freely and completely. Don’t think hard or try and figure this one out. Rather just keep feeling the feeling from Question 2… and be open to any moments from early in life just popping naturally and automatically into your mind. ‘Younger You’ might want to address a particular person, perhaps to yourself, or to the world or God.
4. What changed then?
What changed at that time? What did you start to do inside of yourself to cope with that challenges? What did you start to believe, in order to cope with that challenge?
Let yourself answer from ‘Younger You’, and let yourself reflect on that time as fully as you can. Can you become aware of how you starting to protect and take care of yourself through some new behavior or belief? Can you see that this new coping mechanism was just trying to keep you safe and loved? Can you feel deep compassion and loving for how understandable it was that you reacted and coped in that way at that time? Can you see that this coping mechanism is also what’s holding you back right now?
5. Own and Forgive.
Ok it’s time to Own and Forgive this pattern. Entirely.
So again, it is powerful to remind yourself that it was NOT your fault that you reacted this way and created this coping mechanism. But until you take 100% responsibility for creating this pattern, you are powerless to own it, forgive it and release it. So can you take 100% responsibility for creating this pattern at that time? And are you willing to forgive yourself completely and let it go? Once you’re ready to let yourself off the hook, use the following methods to do so.
6. What’s the Truth?
What’s the truth? What’s present right now?
Allow yourself to share the truth, the clarity, the Love that’s present. What’s your clear intention for moving forward in your life? Are there any next steps that will support you in living this intention.
7. Complete with Gratitude
Share Gratitude and Complete
Share your gratitude with yourself, your younger you, the Spirit, and anyone else you want to. Anchor and complete this process in your gratitude for all that’s present.
From Zoë Lumiere
I adore this work. This self-healing work saved my life, and created my life.
In this event on Thursday I’m also going to be very vulnerably sharing about the massive shift I made in about 9 months of geeking out using the process I’m going to share.
It’s not for the faint of heart. But it’s something we can ALL learn, and for those of us that are more emotionally wired, this might be THE best process you can learn to truly have a happier, healthier and more abundant life.
And this 4-Step Process is just a basic start to the Big, Brave and Beautiful Adventure of Self-Healing. Please let us know how it goes for you!
Sending you love, Zoë 🤗
