The Shame That's Been Holding Me Back continued...

So, even though I've spent decades helping people heal emotional trauma (and subsequent false beliefs) I know what it's like to smack up against my own Self Worth in the aftermath of emotional abuse and betrayal. It was only a few years ago that it knocked me to my knees.

I know what it's like to feel like you've lost yourSelf. I couldn't tap fully into my value. My worth. I hadn't realized I'd stopped trusting mySelf - I was barely working and wasn't sure I even had anything to offer anymore. I hired a coach to help me get my business shored up, but nothing was shaking loose. I stopped believing in mySelf, in my work - even in my innate GOODNESS.

I'd wake up in the morning and not recognize mySelf in th mirror sometimes. Or I'd lay awake at night obsessing about some imagined slight or harm I caused or if someone was upset with me. I started having anxiety, which I'd never had before, and even had a couple of random panic attacks! I'd left the marriage a year before and was aware grief takes it's sweet time, but this felt different. At one point my coach suggested I use my OWN work to pull myself up - which was brilliant - and also my turning point. I'd been running FROM the trauma and when I turned TOWARD it, I found a well of shame that wasn't even MINE - I'd found the cork that was blocking me from ME! That was the beginning of the deepest healing I've ever experienced and the process that changed my work profoundly. I know how painful the aftermath of emotional abuse and betrayal can be - it's insidious and it sucks.

AND I know what it's like to be on the other side of it - to be joyfully back in my skin, living and loving WHO I AM! I wake up happy to work with my clients or spend the day with my grandbaby, or whatever lights my heart up. The best part is I know in my Soul the work WORKS because I'm living the result of it! And now I go to bed grateful for all of it - for healing me on a level I'd never touched before, and for the impact it's making in others' lives. That's why I do it - that's why I've ALWAYS done it, and it feels good to be aligned in that again.

There's a part of me that feels like I might be sharing too much about my work - (ahem, I'm doing that challenge 😊) - but what's more true for me is, if I had to go thru it to help others thru it, then it was worth every bit of it - and who am I to keep that to myself?! I know how painful it is and life's too short to live that way!

So if you or anyone you know struggles in the aftermath of betrayal trauma or emotional abuse/abandonment - and the negative, nagging beliefs that linger - I'm offering 5 people a Free BELIEF BUSTING BREAKTHROUGH SESSION to help you take big steps in healing and reclaiming your Self and your Self Worth! I want YOU to be free to BE WHO YOU ARE and I'd be honored to support you. Just let me know in the comments below if I can be of service to you or someone you care about.
So much love! ~ kab

The Shame That’s Been Holding Me Back and How I'm Healing it

Even though I've been helping people heal emotional pain and trauma for over 30 years - breaking thru limiting beliefs to live the TRUTH of WHO THEY ARE, I have to admit I got stuck in my own very painful, untrue belief that was triggered by trauma several years ago. Over time, I found myself hiding and playing comfortably small, not wanting to be seen - and not making nearly the impact I know I'm here to make. 

Because I felt deep shame about my experience, I haven't shared a lot of the most significant aspects of my story  - or how I got here, and why I’m even more passionate about my work now.

But that changes this week! 

I've joined a Challenge to be more VISIBLE and share more of my story with you, because I know there are a lot of people I can help who're ready to shed the shame of the debilitating false beliefs that keep them stuck, and live TRUE to WHO THEY ARE again! 

I’ll share more of my story tomorrow - but for today, if you'd like to see me make a bigger and more positive difference in the lives of a LOT more people,

Will you please drop me a note below?

On my last post someone asked: what do you think of unconditional love?

And this was my answer.

One of the most destructive collective beliefs we have is that unconditional love means unconditional acceptance of any behavior. It does not. Unconditional love means: I love you *and* love myself. I will protect myself. I can love you from afar if that means keeping myself safe and emotionally healthy. I can let go if I need to. I can choose my peace and my sanity. And my physical health.

Unconditional love is a state of knowing a person is not their conditioning or their patterns. While also knowing their live choices are for them to live with. Unconditional love believes in everyone’s ability to do the work, to take responsibility, and to become the person they were truly mean to be

"... that which will save me from the constant appearance of an unwanted experience of myself. "

If you knew you were safe to be WHO YOU ARE, EVERYWHERE YOU ARE..would you want to?

If you feel a big YES! just reading that, join me for the upcoming LETTING GO™ Series starting Sept 11th and I'll show you HOW!

But I won't just show you - I'll walk thru every step with you, because I've lived it and I know it works!

Here's what I found thru 3 years of healing and recovering from a long term emotionally abusive relationship: The roots of my suffering - MY why - were my lingering unconscious Codependent traits. AND - the root of my Codependency was Shame.

Yes, SHAME! If we trace our Codependent patterns all the way back to their original source, I promise you - we'll find shame. Abandonment Trauma, Insecure Attachment, Trauma Bonding - all rooted in shame and all share Codependent qualities. Getting in and STAYING in toxic relationships = shame. Anger, control, caretaking, people pleasing = all shame. Self sabotaging, negative beliefs about ourselves = shame. Shadow Self = shame. Codependency shows up everywhere WE show up, because it's all about our relationship with ourSelf.

I've been in Codependency recovery for many years and it's good work, but THIS? This was not THAT! When I tapped into the shame that was blocking me from me, I dug in and dug deep. I did the work. I found support. I invested in mySelf (even though I didn't always feel worthy of it - there's that shame again!) I grieved. I turned toward mySelf rather than away. I practiced uncomfortable, "new" things to break up "old" patterns. I retrieved parts of mySelf I didn't know were missing. I dug some more, let more go, found more ME. The shift I felt was palpable. I could go on, but the bottom line is this: Heal the SHAME - heal the Codependency!

I remember thinking "This is it - this is all of us." And here we are! I've condensed those 3 years of my own healing work into a powerful 6 week process you can experience in a fraction of the time! It does NOT take years and years to heal and recover, regardless of where or how Codependency is showing up in your life. It does take work, but when that work is laser focused, guided, and intentional, you can get right to it and get on with living your best life!

So, if you said YES! to being WHO YOU ARE, EVERYWHERE YOU ARE, register here:https://thecenterforwellbeing.com/events/ right now and join us for the upcoming LETTING GO™ 6-week Series - Sept 12-Oct 24, 2023.

(If you've participated in the previous version of LETTING GO™, you can still Review thru the end of 2023!)

It's powerful. It's palpable. It's possible. It's HAPPENING!

I can't wait to see you!! So much love, Kate 🧡

Get ready...things are about to change!

When we start breaking away from the old codependent paradigms and behaviors that seemed so "normal" before, people around us start freaking out a little. Ok - a LOT! We aren't engaging in the drama or allowing them to use or misuse us anymore, but to them, we may appear selfish, detached, and indifferent. OUR healthy boundaries feel like slammed doors for those who're accustomed to controlling and manipulating. They may try to coax us back with guilt and shame - holding us hostage in their expectations of who we've been - or who they NEED us to be - to avoid their own Self evaluation and growth.

They don't get it - not yet - and we're not responsible for when and if they do. That's between them and God. WE are responsible for being TRUE to ourselves, living in integrity, honoring our own (and others') boundaries, and nurturing OUR relationship with the Divine.

When our communication with others becomes a reflection of honor and respect for ourSelf, it may take a while for them to realize it's also honoring and respectful of them, too! But we HAVE to draw the lines in order to stop the madness. This requires us to stand firmly in the Center of WHO WE ARE and allow some people to step away as they need to. We must be WILLING for the unhealthy relationships to fall away, trusting that the true, authentic connections will come close again, healthier and willing to create genuine, healthy relationships with us.

How do I know this? Because I've BEEN this! Every side of it. And then I woke up. When I realized how unhappy and unhealthy I was, I did what I had to do to heal, to let go, to find mySelf and recover my Self worth. I slowly shed the codependent "me" and stood naked in WHO I AM...shaky, insecure, and damned determined to not shrink back. I stood right there in the light until I remembered that I was already home - already WHOLE - and absolutely worthy of being here. And here I AM!

So get ready! Recovering yourSelf will shake your snow-globe, but it's a beautiful thing and you are SO very worth it! ~kab

Everybody's BRAVE looks different! We tend to compare and bully ourselves if we're not doing someone else's BRAVE. STOP THAT! My BRAVE thing today was honoring my boundary when it was pushed. Yesterday it was self care when my brain was screaming "WORK, WORK, WORK!" Every day ALL day offers possibilities for us to choose comfort or risk, familiar or unknown, fear or freedom - in great and small ways. Even if you only choose ONE BRAVE THING today - and the next and the next - you ARE being brave with your life. Let that sink in.

What does YOUR brave look like today?

07/21/2023

Why DO we care so much what people think?? Ugh. It's the worst!

The deeper I dive into ME the more free I am to be WHO I AM -EVERYWHERE I AM! It wasn't always that way for me - the struggle was real. That belief that said, "Don't do that. Don't BE that. People won't like you." was strong. And it was WRONG! People may NOT like me, and that's ok! But if I don't like MYSELF? Nope! That's NOT okay.

Do you ever struggle to be true to YOU - to be WHO YOU ARE, EVERYWHERE YOU ARE?

My grandgirl has become fascinated with her shadow! On our walks, she'll ask me where it is and I'll say we have to wait until we get back in the light so we can see it. Is that not the perfect metaphor? We can't see our shadow UNTIL we're in the light! It's only a reflection of - US! And what if we had that same fascination with it rather than fear and judgment? SEEK your shadow and you'll find yourSelf!

Letting Go™ 6-week Series is BACK and Registration is OPEN! Registration link in bio.

I stumbled on the concept of Codependency in the mid 90's when someone put the book Codependent No More (by Melody Beattie) in my hand. I wish I could remember who that person was, because they changed my life! From the first page, I couldn't put it down. It was ME - I was reading about MY life! I'd been on my teaching/guiding path for a few years and THIS - this was not THAT and it blew the doors wide open! I dug in and dug deep - practiced new things, grieved old things, grew, dug some more, let more go, found more ME. The shift I felt was palpable and I remember thinking "everybody needs to know about this!" And that was it - I commenced to creating my very first course: Letting Go™​

I knew even then that this was NOT just for people in relationship with addicts and alcholics - this was ALL of us. I had students in my circles who had never been in relationship to either, yet shared the same Codependent qualities as those who had. I've taught this work for almost 3 decades now and in the last 3 years, THIS is what has crystalized in my experience: Codependency is rooted in shame.

Yes, SHAME. If we trace our Codependent patterns all the way back to their original source, I promise you - we'll find shame. Shame disguises itself in a lot of ways - Abandonment Trauma, Insecure Attachment, Trauma Bonding - all rooted in shame and all share Codependent qualities. Getting in and STAYING in toxic relationships - shame. Anger, control, caretaking, people pleasing - all shame. Deficiency (negative) beliefs about ourselves - shame. Shadow Self - shame.

I could go on, but the bottom line is this: Heal the SHAME - heal the Codependency! The Letting Go™ work has never been about letting go of others, but rather, of our own unhealthy attachments and beliefs about ourselves - and it's taken on a whole new, deeper resonance than ever before: Letting Go™ of the shame that keeps us hiding WHO WE ARE. It's powerful. It's palpable. It's POSSIBLE! It's happening.
