One of the first things I do with new clients is help them establish an understanding of safety. But how do you do that? How can you feel safe in an unsafe world?
You tackle this goal in two phases. First, you create a safe inner world for yourself. Then you establish a safe outer world.
When we don't feel safe as adults, it’s because our inner world isn’t safe. In order to heal your inner world, you must give yourself permission to not only feel your emotions but also face those emotions you weren’t allowed to express as an abused child.
This is important, because every year those repressed emotions eat up more space inside you. You need to acknowledge them, feel them, express them, and then release them in a healthy way.
After spending years struggling with my feelings, I’ve learned to appreciate them. I no longer fear them. Your emotions are the language your body uses to communicate with you. This is how your nervous system warns you about something or lets you know it’s time to make a change in a certain area of your life.
Once you’ve made peace with your emotions and created a safe inner world, your outer world will begin to shift and change.
The most important step I took in creating a safe outer world was to cut out family members who were unsupportive of my healing. As I healed my inner world, I realized most of my family was never going to be a part of my healing, and I’m okay with that. We each have our own path to follow. We may have been born into the same family, but that doesn’t mean our paths are the same.
If you’re having trouble with safety issues and need help, I’m here for you. My clients often tell me how safe they feel with me. That’s because I simplify the process to make it easier for them to create a safe inner and outer world for themselves.
Contact me if you need help. I had to create safety for myself years ago, so I’m happy to show you how to do it, too!
