SYMPTOMS + PERPETUATING BEHAVIORS
Do you recognize these symptoms or behaviors that perpetuate the wound?
🌀 Feel like the black sheep of the family, never really fitting in anywhere, and longing for true belonging.
🌀 Carry heavy false belief that life is lonely, unkind or not made for people like me.
🌀 Suffer from severe self-doubt and/or self-hatred due to lack of loving recognition, by self and/or others, of my unique gifts.
🌀 Chronically feel unwelcomed and/or left out, as if my person is not wanted/valued.
🌀 Fail to create supportive structures to channel my gifts in highly profitable, valuable and impactful ways.
🌀 Unable to see my gifts and/or withhold them, as if they don’t matter to the world.
🌀 Wait for others to invite or include me, rather than initiate my own participation.
False Identities to Release
🗝 I am a reject
🗝 I don’t belong
🗝 I am a freak
Maturation + Integration Practices
If you do recognize yourself in this identity matrix, here are some practices to maturate and integrate that wounded child.
🌹 Cultivate a sacred environment at home and beyond to ground me to the natural rhythms of earth.
🌹 Join groups with common interests, then learn to engage within the rules of the group, while maintaining unique self-expression, knowing that true belonging is effortless.
🌹 Strengthen social skills of openness, curiosity, attunement, and reading the room.
Viewed through sacred lenses, my wounds become my greatest gift.
