Journey Home to Self

Mar 13, 2024

In this episode of Journey Home to Self, we dove deep into the waters of our emotional states and how we often mask our true feelings with rehearsed responses. I invite you to pause and reflect on how you're genuinely feeling, beyond the surface-level "I'm fine" or "I'm okay."

We explored the discomfort that comes with acknowledging our true emotions, especially when they're not entirely positive. I shared my own experiences with this struggle and introduced the concept of "spiritual bypassing," which is the act of using spiritual ideas to avoid facing unresolved emotional issues.

To help you navigate this process, I offered four tenets of always being feeling (ABF): radical honesty, avoiding labeling emotions, allowing emotions the time they need, and remembering the purpose of our emotional journey.
