It is counter-intuitive, but for many people, learning to accept joy and freedom is a challenge. If you’ve been bound up in trauma and it’s after-effects, then freedom, joy and flow are very frightening. If you have had experiences that showed you you couldn’t trust the world, your Self, or the Self of others, then freedom and joy seem preposterous.
So we are gonna have to work on this within ourselves, and support our brothers and sisters to begin to trust in Self, trust in freedom, trust in joy. They seem desirable, but for those who suffer from unresolved, unhealed trauma (which is MOST people, by the way), they are scary.
Let’s love ourselves back to life.
