Restoring Your Innocence
One time I was coaching Aislynn, who had a dream of owning an investment property. Most of my initial sessions involve reframing a person’s mindset. Fear and insecurity are usually the biggest obstacles for people to overcome. That’s why in the early sessions, I guide people toward finding their true self within: so they will have the confidence to accomplish their goals.
But working with Aislynn, I noticed that she experienced unusual resistance. Although she wanted to own property, Aislynn disqualified herself and didn’t think she had what it takes. Then in one session, I encouraged her to look within to identify what was holding her back. Suddenly she broke down in tears and shared how her ex-husband had always put her down and made her feel inadequate.
For the next 30 minutes, Aislynn revealed her life story. At that moment something shifted inside her. Aislynn exposed her perceived weaknesses, and that became the turning point for her. Being vulnerable had opened her to allowing love to heal her broken heart. When her heart was whole, Aislynn was able to take action on her dreams. Sharing her perceived weakness was the fuel she needed to be strong enough to achieve her goal.
When divine love thoroughly permeates your subconscious, your innocence is restored. With that purity of heart, you are free to be an open book. You can talk about your own flaws, failures, and mistakes without shame because you recognize that it is through your weaknesses that you are made strong.
