A picture says a thousand words…..
I was raised in a southern fire and brimstone, scare the pants (literally) off you, god is gonna get you, woe to those that even think about having, fun kind of church. And yes, you guessed it….it was as far from fun or forgiveness as you can get.
When we shot that picture you see above I remembered my mother’s casket being carried up those steps and a couple preachers who never even knew her talking about her short lived life. I felt the anger and rage of what I was taught about myself back in those days in that church. Seeing those same heavy doors reminded me of the heaviness that hung in that space. As a woman you were less than, worthless, told not to wear pants, makeup, cut your hair, dance and while you are at it, just go ahead and hand over all your power on a silver platter right now..place it on the holy altar. Otherwise you might take that turn straight into you know where and burn there forever.
I was deeply wounded as I sat in those pews. My innocence and light as a child dimmed in the guilt and shame that hung in the air and choked the life out of not just me but many others. I had hoped for respite in a sacred space from the abuse that was going on at home, but all I received was more of same.
Do you remember being a kid and how you were feeling being in church? I hope your experience wasn’t as extreme as mine but, as you can see from the video I sure remember! For many of us what bubbles up is that sinking feeling in our guts. Feeling shame, guilt or just somehow inherently bad. So many people who are close to me refer to “catholic guilt” and that phrase hasn’t been said a gazillion times for nothing. And when you feel bad…you do bad or create less than what you want.
In the video I explore how ideas planted in our emotional gardens can stick around for a lifetime….that is until we wake up. Ever heard the expression, “Beware the danger of an unconscious belief?” Now I’m not saying church is the only culprit….there are many, this is one that has reared its ugly head in my awareness lately. Let me preface this upfront….I AM not saying all churches will hurt you …. I just recently I went to an amazing,almost all African American church where I felt more love and acceptance than I ever have in my life! (Click Here to view this very freeing video now)
On this journey through creating the Reveal series, Lyanca and I have dredged up so many old and at times unconscious (and by that I mean we didn’t even know they were there!) beliefs, that we knew we were on to something big. Not just with ourselves but with our clients and listeners and sometimes even with our speakers. You see, the decisions we have made about us…or the ideas that got planted sometimes early on are running the show. So much so that we can wake up everyday going through the motions of our days, wanting different, yearning for different but never seem to be able to make the change that’s required. Does it happen to you? That’s because we are still running on the old version….of programming, whether that came from your family, culture, church or whatever. Just as you get a virus in your computer and it and will run slow or sometimes shut completely down, that’s what is happening to us mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Lately we’ve seen it is affecting your bodies too. Its as if the virus begins multiplying and you feel as if you can’t stop it. Well hold the frick up….You Can!! We are living proof of it! You Can!! We are living proof of it! Get started here!
Our commitment to you has been to always support you finding your joy and gifting your treasures to the world..whatever they might be. We know how many beliefs can be running the show, and you may or may not be aware. And through our deepening process, examining our own beliefs day in and day out, we are even more committed to being a guide that you’ve possibly never had or never knew you could have.
How does a guilt ridden, small town, southern, fearful girl who wants to hide out end up on a national TV show….in front of 10 million people? By facing the beliefs, yeah all those about not being good enough….I have been coached through my dark spots and now I know who I am and I’m so happy to be sharing what I know with you. In fact it hurts when I don’t share with you, click here to start sharing!
Help, support and coaching is available to you by us. We get it, we’ve lived the pain, anger, sadness, and hopelessness many of you feel. Let us help you shine light on the places inside that tell you that you are wrong or less than wonderful. You can feel joy, get out of pain, give your gifts to world, make more money, write the book. You absolutely can. But not by holding on to beliefs that truly no longer feed you. You gotta choose or the universe will choose it for you!
