How To Get To The “Core” Of Your Issue
You’ve probably noticed that the only thing in the way of what you want is… you. So what is in the way, really?
If deep inside of you, something still feels painful or unresolved… And the things you’re wanting the most in life are still elusive…
It’s because the teachings and techniques you’ve gotten so far simply don’t have the ability to identify and to shift the root cause of your internal resistance to what you want. (Read this twice!)
At the core of your system, you have wounded younger selves, past traumas, identity beliefs (like “I’m not worthy” or “I’m not lovable”), insecure attachment styles, or protective patterns.
These Are Your “Core Wounds.”
Core wounds originate when we have childhood experiences where we felt severely threatened and overwhelmed with negative emotions. Our nervous system then gets “programmed” to be on the look out for situations that seem similar… and avoid experiencing that intense pain again.
We then spend the majority of our lives unconsciously trying to protect ourselves from any life experiences that are similar to the original negative childhood experiences. (Even if we’re going for what our “conscious goal-setting mind” wants – our unconscious mind may try to avoid that to protect us from what happened in the past.)
What’s more – we also spend our entire lives unconsciously trying to “fill the hole” that didn’t get filled in childhood. Whether it’s safety, feeling loved, feeling nurtured, feeling like we belong or fit in, or feeling enough or worthy – we keep trying to “fill” ourselves from other people or experiences or substances, but it ultimately never works. This can lead to life-long, painful feeling of lack inside.
Here’s The Key to Resolving a Persistent Inner Issue & To Creating Change
Virtually every inner issue you’re dealing didn’t just start last week — the origin of the issue started with childhood wounding. You’re carrying past pain or struggle into the present, and recreating it over and over.
However, everything you’re doing to protect or suppress or even “fill up” your wounds is actually keeping them intact. Until you heal the wounding at the core, the issue tends to persist.
So the key question to ask yourself is this: what are your core wounds?
