Episode 32: Unleashing Your Potential: The Power of Inner Work
Join me on a captivating podcast episode as we dive into the transformative world of inner work. Discover why therapy, healing, and personal growth are essential for everyone, regardless of their background or life experiences. Break the misconception that therapy is only for those who have experienced major trauma and understand the wide-reaching impact it can have on our lives.In some communities, therapy and healing carry a stigma, limiting access to the incredible benefits they offer. Let's challenge these outdated beliefs and embrace the fact that therapy, breath work, healing—whatever you call it—is for everyone.Trauma takes various forms, not just from significant events. Even seemingly small incidents can leave lasting imprints. Renowned psychologist Dr. Gabor Mate emphasizes that trauma is about how it affects us internally, not just the incident itself. We can even experience trauma by empathetically hearing someone else's story.Let's explore the profound connection between trauma and personal growth. Therapy helps us release suppressed stories and traumas we've carried for too long. It impacts our self-worth, confidence, and hinders our ability to pursue our dreams. Remember, trauma isn't limited to tragedy—it encompasses a wide range of emotional wounds.This episode breaks the cycle of generational trauma. By actively working on ourselves, we create a positive legacy for our children, nephews, nieces, and future generations. We refuse to let limiting beliefs hold us back or hinder our loved ones. We instill unwavering self-belief, teaching them that they can achieve anything they set their minds to.Ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery, heightened confidence, and limitless potential? Join me as we embrace our inner power and create a brighter future. Together, we can overcome obstacles, heal our wounds, and unlock our true potential.Support the showFollow Us Here:Web: https://elatedyou.com.auInstagram: @elated_youFacebook: @elatedyouTiktok: @elated_you
