It's not always easy to navigate emotional pain, especially when it can come in all kinds of shapes and sizes.
I was reading a post about a healing event with an array of well-known authors.
I noticed a conversation that piqued my interest. It began with a woman who said that one of the presenters made her feel uncomfortable.
There was a response from another follower who said, "You're wrong!"
This made me think.
Why tell someone they're wrong about their own personal experience?
While it can come from a place of love, we can be conditioned from an early age to second guess our own and someone else's wisdom.
Being told what to do is part of growing up, but it can filter through into what we consider to be the norm.
Were you ever told you were wrong as a child? Do you remember how that felt?
Telling someone that their experience is wrong potentially separates them from their own intuition, wisdom, and what's right for them.
Just to be clear, I'm referring to personal experience.
When I told my mother that I was seeing colored lights around people, she didn't tell me I was wrong because she wasn't experiencing them also.
As healers, our desire to be of service can sometimes appear pushy.
We want to share our experiences in support of others. It doesn't mean it's right for everyone.
If you have the urge to tell someone that they're wrong, think about your own experience and what theirs might be.
If it's different, then honor that difference. It doesn't mean you're right, and it doesn't make them wrong either.
We create separation, even when we're on the same side.
This is the age of unity, union, oneness, and it starts with us, you and me.
We are the ones working all of this out.
And my heartfelt wish is that we do it together.
