Recognizing when you’re playing out old patterns (coping mechanisms, destructive behaviors, etc) calls in an opportunity to offer yourself the recognition, compassion and unconditional love that you needed when you first created that pattern.
Which disrupts and redirects the pattern into something of your choosing.
This comes through a very intentional and practiced self-awareness. An ability to truly witness yourself without the presence of ego. And a devotion to healing through love instead of arresting yourself with shame.
That devotion often looks like constantly redirecting yourself to love when you find yourself in shame.
This is a type of healing that transcends space and time, and offers you the immediate opportunity to reframe your entire human experience, and the way you show up in the world.
It’s always worth it to do the hard work.
