Beneath the layers of criticism, rejection, and shame, there's a version of you who's already healed. As you gently move beyond shame and self-punishment this version of you is getting ready to rise from the pages of this book.
Whatever's been done to you or said to you, however you beat yourself up about things from the past you had no control over and that you cannot change, from the roots up you can heal your past.
Whoever depressed your spirit and stole your power they no longer have control over your opinions and your choices. It's time you knew the truth and saved yourself.
Our new website is being updated and will launch in October 2022 - see you then!
"All battles are first won or lost in the mind".
The power to rest and feel safe..... & the power to know you are enough.
Below is a very, very short video of my original '4 sticky notes to emotional freedom' plan. This simple little plan formed the foundation of my emotional transformation. It was the first step I took towards healing my childhood trauma, my rock-bottom self-worth & self-esteem, overcoming severe social anxiety, and brought me back to life from the suicidal depression that had threatened to capsize me for good. It seems so simple when I look at it now, but these little messages lifted me up from underneath the toxic power of other people's criticism, rejection, and judgement. I lost them more than once but found them again, usually tucked in the pages of a journal or self-help book. They stuck together until I could make proper sense of the meaning behind the words bringing them all together as a foundation to build my future upon. I sincerely hope they can do the same for you.
FEEL FREE TO USE IT!
In my 18-plus years listening to people talk about their emotional pain I’ve learned that healing and transformation both begin with the permission to meet our needs, to feel emotionally safe, to know we’re meant to be here, and that we matter. With Permission prominent in our emotional toolbox, we can stand up and speak up, pursue our passions, take ourselves seriously, be sincere, be flawed, feel OK about failure and mistakes, be amazing, funny, clever, different, be the ‘us’ that matters, and be the 'who' we were born to be - all without the fear of judgement and criticism stopping us. When we give ourselves Permission with a capital 'P' we get to live with dignity and self-respect regardless of our dimly lit past, our lack of education, our race, religion, gender, our crimes, our misdemeanours, or our trials and tribulations. With permission we finally get to achieve the successes we long for, and to embrace the failures we’re embarrassed about as we're no longer hiding or denying our past. And the gifts and talents we’ve kept in the shadows and away from the light? Thanks to permission, they can finally bloom.
“Who were you before someone shaped you to be, who and what they needed you to be? Where did you go?”
Did you learn too early to change who you were to stay safe? Did you compromise, strategize, sit down, stay quiet, leave yourself behind and lose your identity to suit the needs of others? With Permission you can transform your history, you can emerge from underneath layers of compromise, procrastination, and perfectionism. You have Permission to reclaim the dancing, singing, unique version of yourself; the version of you who’s already healed.
