We all have wisdom and healing potential inside of us. You probably have spiritual ideals that you desire to live by. Some examples of those ideals may be: treating others and yourself with compassion, being centered and at ease in your work, staying mindful in your parenting, putting into practice what you teach others, skillfully navigating tough emotions, staying grounded with your partner in conflict and expressing yourself authentically in your relationships.
Many of us have blocks, wounds and patterns of thinking and behaving that challenge our ability to live in accordance with our spiritual ideals. We may have mental health issues that are challenging our ability to live and function as we want to. It may bring you comfort to know that our mental health challenges and wounds can actually be gateways to living the version of ourselves and lives we desire. When we work with our challenges with compassion and are open to the insight they hold, our challenges can provide powerful support in our personal transformation. We need courage, compassion and self-awareness to change.
