  1. Primal Therapy Off to a primal childhood decondtioning retreat. This is gonna be such a trip. A trip of personal growth, trauma healing and embodied spirituality. I'm excited. I'm nervous. I'm already glad I decided to do this. _________ Dear childhood self: I'm here now. Picking up the pieces and parts of me I left behind. I promised I would come back one day and make it right. Now's the time. Hurt people hurt people. Let's break the cycle. "Peace with our past, love in our present, and openness to our future." See you in 2 weeks folks.

  3. When a child is born When a child is born, the world seems to holds its breath. Time stands still. Presence fills the room. The presence of innocence and love. Looking at this child, we can’t help but be touched by the mystery we live in. Looking at each other, we suddenly know that its nothing short of a miracle that we’re here. https://the-inward-morning.com/journal/when-a-child-is-born
  4. After my first "awakening experience" I had no idea how to put into words the beauty of what I've seen, the trust it created, the meaning it gave to my life. Some time later, I heard this excerpt from The Divine Comedy and I teared up because it so perfectly described what I've seen. All I wanted to do was read this poem for days. "I have been in that heaven the most illumined by light from Him And seen things which to utter, He who returns hath neither skill nor knowledge. For as it nears the object of its yearning, Our intellect is overwhelmed so deeply It never can retrace the path it followed. But whatsoever of the holy Kingdom Was in the power of memory to treasure Will be my theme until the song is ended.” - Dante
  5. I really love that mechanism. Can observe it in so many things. INFJ to the core I'm not sure about Enneagram types. Do you know a good test you can recommend? I get different numbers every time I take one. I also don't get the "wing" thing. So I haven't really looked into it. I get 4 and 5 a lot. Also 9.

  7. Overwhelm Part 2: Resolve and shifting the lens Dear uneasy feeling of overwhelm, thank you for helping me. I'm not sure how to deal with you when you arise, but I'm sure you're only here to help me evolve. I'm here now, to listen. I'll be as open as I can to your answers. What is it you want to tell me? So you're being as open as you can? Yes. Then you wouldn't have a problem with me arising. Are you forcing me to stay open? You're still trying to anchor yourself in things that don't define you. I'll just crank up the heat until you get that that doesn't work. Isn't that a super ungrounded way to live? When nothing is certain? It's probably the most sane way to live. Look around you, how do people live who want to secure things into place?

Can't say I'm implementing what I've learned at the minute. I'm a stressed chicken if there ever was one
  8. @RendHeaven I don't even know what to say about that
  9. I think you’d be surprised to find out that these rules are actually written nowhere, that cultural norms are a collective hallucination and that everyone’s wanting to break out of them just as much as you do. It just needs one person to take the first step, and reading what you wrote, who could that be… Also, there’s a difference between giving your honest opinion and needing people to agree with you. The latter is just a desperate cry for attention; attention that you’re not willing to give yourself. I follow a basic rule when it comes to these things: I only give my opinion on things when I’m directly asked or when I’m completely relaxed and feel that my input could unify, inspire or deepen the understanding. Love, value and honour your feelings and dreams to such a degree that you need no one to validate them. If people do, it’s nice. If they don’t, who cares? Give yourself all the attention and freedom you miss during the day. Also, check out the LP course for that. It'll help immensely with grounding. Be your own best friend, parent, teacher, care taker. Maybe the most worthwhile journey I’ve ever encountered. Another cool rule to live by: “Other people don’t ever have to change. Only I do.” Much love!
  10. Bigger vision! “If you want to build a ship, don’t herd people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea. One will weave the canvas; another will fell a tree by the light of his ax. Yet another will forge nails, and there will be others who observe the stars to learn how to navigate. And yet all will be as one. Building a boat isn’t about weaving canvas, forging nails, or reading the sky. It’s about giving a shared taste for the sea, by the light of which you will see nothing contradictory but rather a community of love." - Antoine de Saint-Exupery
  11. Overwhelm. Again and again. I woke up in pain. Emotional pain. The pain of going through the same struggles again and again and again. "I should have gotten up earlier. I should have read, meditated, done yoga, etc. by now." I feel anxious about work, like I've already done everything wrong even though I haven't even gone there yet. Like its inevitable that I'm gonna disappoint... Read full journal post: https://the-inward-morning.com/journal/overwhelm-again-and-again
  12. So exciting! Hands down, best descriptions of Ni I've ever read. Beautiful! This journal man... Written like a true INFJ. Wanna be best friends?
  13. @Daphnedenninghoff23 Seems like you guys have gone through some amazing growth together. The "risk" in being very honest is that, there might be a point where you decide it doesn't make sense to be together anymore. Just keep the communication going and see where it takes you. I think you're doing much better than you realise. Just be very honest with yourself. How do you feel about the fact that he's with other women? Is it ok for you? Do you still trust him? Do you still feel safe with him? If so, where's the problem? Just because its against the norm doesn't mean you can't become very happy going for it Just make it a regular practice to check in with yourself and communicate your feelings with him. Honesty will always find a way. @Preety_India What manipulation is going on when you're completely honest with each other and only doing things that are ok for both of you? Being open and honest about what you need and wish for is the highest good in any relationship and the only way it's gonna turn out well. Just because you couldn't deal with it doesn't mean it can't work for other couples. I don't like the way you use words like "cheating" and "low self esteem" to describe a perfectly healthy couple finding its way. So misleading.
