I have a therapist. There are things in my past that have needed healing for me to move forward fully and authentically as who I am. This is not your conventional therapy. This therapist is not a person looking on, he's there with me, connected to me, and holding awareness and safety and possibility and healing.
About three months ago I became aware of something that I wanted to address. I had alluded to it in passing in previous sessions. Yet, I was afraid to come out and talk with him about it. I was afraid that it would cause problems and mean that I could no longer work with him. This would be quite awful because I have made a lot of progress during our work together. Then about a month ago I did it. I talked to him about this issue. He was so open and accepting. It was an amazing session.
Instead of causing problems as I had feared, talking to him authentically about the issue the opened up whole new areas of exploration and ways of healing.
I have attended a new church, changed my diet, have more energy resulting from the change diet and am going to a new social group. So much has changed so quickly. Yesterday I had so much energy that when I missed the bus I didn't want to get in a taxi and so I got on other buses and got myself downtown. It is 6:45 AM now should be in bed barely able to move but I'm up writing this.
And I am finding answers to how change happens with regards to coaching, and I found this great training because I got up last Saturday and had energy and started exploring Immunity to Change offered free through Harvard Edx. Then, through some miracle I cannot retrace, I found on the internet a West Coast training happening nearby – the first time such training has been offered – and I am going! So much has happened!
What looked like taking a step into the abyss has turned out to be taking a step into freedom. What I thought would happen was simply a story. It was not true. And if I had listened to that story I would not be where I am today.
