EPISODE 22

How hospitable are you to yourself? Does your inner self feel safe to reveal itself to you? Are you able to believe that all your emotions - even anger, hurt, envy, and other 'negative' feelings come bearing a gift for you?

This episode is the second half of a two-part conversation I have with experienced soul guide and spiritual companion Edwina Yeow . We discuss what it means to become a safe space for ourselves.

REFLECTION PROMPT
Listen.
- As you listened to today's episode, what struck you? Does something resonate particularly strongly with you?

Ponder.
- At this point in your life and in your journey, how safe a space are you to yourself?
- How hospitable are you to your own emotions and the physical sensations that your body may feel?

Act.
- Notice the emotions that are surfacing in the course of your daily life. Pay attention to just notice, not to do anything about how you feel, but to just notice them.
- Allow whatever thoughts, judgments, criticisms that might surface almost automatically to be contained. Give permission for the feelings to just be without criticising them
