More and more I’ve realized the “safety” of staying within our comfort zone is an illusion. It’s really a prison that keeps us stuck and disconnected from the fullness of who we are.
It reminds me of “the window of tolerance” in my trauma therapy work. Nothing transformative can happen when we stay within it but if we push too hard and too fast, the client is overwhelmed and easily becomes disregulated. I must stay fully attuned to my client—her present emotional state as well as her strengths; her wisdom and her resilience and diligently work to help her from not getting stuck in negative cognitive loops or overwhelm.
On my own healing journey I had to become attuned with myself and embrace my authentic power before finding the courage to move from safety to bravery. Practicing self compassion is crucial before taking leaps and engaging in powerful truth telling because we are bound to make mistakes, fall down or get judged along the way. Without this unconditional love and acceptance when we are suffering or admitting our worst mistakes, we can spiral into shame and silence. Our purpose, our power and our wisdom stay imprisoned and we run the risk of hurting others in our defence against this unbearable shame.
For our children to be brave, they need to see us being brave. They need us to be fully attuned with their spirit so we can teach them to trust themselves to take risks. By emotion coaching and modeling self compassion to our children, we arm them with the tools to speak and act from a place of courage and confidence. Stretching and growing outside our comfort zone alongside one another, we can be the change this world desperately needs. Want some distance reiki to help you be more brave? Follow and comment below
Thank you @asha.frost for the inspiration for this post and for leading the way with brave conversations around healing, truth and reconciliation and mothering.
Over the years one of my favorite things to hear is hubby playing his guitar. Since we started dating 12 years ago his music has evolved as he has grown from 70s and 90s classic rock to a lot of worship music. Now that his hand is almost 100% from surgery I'm blessed to have our home filled with worship music again. The simple things make me burst inside even though he isn't singing to me I always take it as a gift to me. he hates photos so I had to sneak this one. #Ilovemyhusband#hesingstome#growingtogether#worship#thelittlethings#Taylorguitar#partofmyheartoutsidemybody
Our next big step as a couple is coming in mere days... it's terrifying but I'm glad we are doing this together. We've grown together and individually so much and now we're here. I'm proud of all you do for us and cannot wait to see what life brings us next . Thank you for being at my side.
I have never been one to jump from relationship to relationship. My previous relationships have all been very precious to me.
But today is the first time ever I woke up feeling like I’m ready for forever.
Meet our a client who came for an intensive Schroth program to work with @sanjacurvyspine all the way from Honduras!
IM is a wonderful man who has spent a good chunk of his life trying to find the best treatment for his scoliosis that is giving him a great deal of physical and emotional discomfort and he thinks that he has finally found it with us. He shared some incredible thoughts and learnings with us and we had an amazing week of learning and sharing between us.
Scoliosis is more than just a musculoskeletal problem. It goes well beyond the physical. It affects our emotional and psychological wellbeing. Schroth can help to cope better with all aspects of your scoliosis.

Thanks GOD, kemuliaan Tuhan selalu dirasakan dalam hidup ini. Tak peduli berapa besar halangan yang kau alami, ketika kamu MAU dan YAKIN akan keputusan yang bisa membuat hati Tuhan senang karna kamu berada dalam komunitas yang positif, maka segala urusanmu akan dimudahkan.
Kata beberapa mentor TAB Team yang bertemu saya ketika 3 hari di lembang berkata : "Jangan pernah putus asa, jangan pernah redupkan semangat meskipun Jufri hanya datang sendirian. Setidaknya Jufri sudah melakukan dan memulai untuk menjadi contoh"
Terima kasih atas semangatnya, terima kasih atas kata-kata motivasinya, semoga kedepannya saya juga bisa belajar dari kalian, Leader yang rendah hati
