A couple of months ago I attended a personal development event hosted at a private home in Denver.
The event wrapped up, and people started leaving.
I walked out into the living room and saw a beautiful young woman curled up into a ball, weeping uncontrollably in an overstuffed armchair.
I walked over to her, knelt down, and asked her what was happening.
She shared that the event had resurfaced a life-long, deep guilt she’d been harboring since she was a young child.
She shared she felt fully responsible for her younger brother being beaten (instead of her) and for her stepfather leaving her mother — even though she was just a young girl at the time.
While she normally tried to suppress the guilt, occasions that asked her to look inward (like the event we’d just attended) ripped everything open and made the pain of her guilt unbearable.
Nothing she’d tried in the past relieved the guilt, and she was absolutely terrified she’d have to carry it around for the rest of her life.
I put my hand on her knee and asked if she’d like to be free of the guilt, forever.
She immediately stopped crying, finally met my eyes, and asked “Is that actually POSSIBLE when I’ve felt this way for SO LONG?”
I said, “Yes. It’s possible.”
She said, “Oh my god. Yes please, let’s do it. How?”
So we found a quiet bedroom on the home’s lower level, closed the door, and sat down facing each other on the double bed.
As we talked, she came to the realization that she’d be forced to carry her guilt forever, UNLESS she could let go of her conviction that the events were her fault. She knew intellectually she didn’t cause the events, but some small part of her couldn’t let go of the conviction.
So we sat on the soft bed for a little under a half hour, and we did just a bit of MindFix work.
Before our half hour was up, she began crying again.
This time though, it was tears of relief and pure joy.
Her eyes were wide and she shared, “I feel SO FREE. Of COURSE it wasn’t my fault!!!!!!! I always knew that, but now I actually FEEL that. I’ve never, ever, ever been able to feel this before. I feel SO FREE. You just changed the rest of my life.”
I followed behind her as she left the bedroom with a look of awe and aliveness on her face. There was a spring in her step, and she walked as if a hundred pound weight had been lifted off her shoulders.
I love what I do.
And I share what I do so that people can see that massive change and relief from what burdens them doesn’t NEED to be difficult or take a long time.
When you're sick and tired of getting in your own way, and you know you're capable of SO much more, it's time to talk to us.
