Do you ever have this overwhelming feeling that you're missing something? Or maybe that something is trying to get your attention for some reason?
I have been feeling like this for most of this year up to this point.
Things in my life have felt hard, unfair, uneasy. I got into fix it mode a lot.
Then my coach called me out and said Chantel- you need to go work with your shame.
Shame? Blah. I don't have shame.
I was adamant she was wrong.
However, allowing myself to be wrong was a game changer.
I played with what if she is right?
What if I am running from shame?
I got quiet and curious.
And what I have encountered has been anything short of amazing.
So often, we do the hardest work we can to avoid feeling a part of ourselves. For many it's shame. Others it's overwhelm, anxiety, fear... but we're all running for different parts of ourselves.
Except that is what's creating all the problem and drama. The running. The thinking and believing it's wrong.
Over the past couple weeks, I've been doing the uncomfortable work of encountering my shame.
I will no sugar coat this, it's been hard.
However, I can see how this has been holding me back in so many ways.
I am understanding more of who I am and also my connection to my Heavenly Father than I ever have before.
Sitting with it.
Talking to it.
Today, I want to share my intimate experience with shame and how you can do the same for whatever part of you that you are resisting.
So listen to today's podcast.
