Take Back Your Power

— by Fiona Coward —

Imagine life as a complex tapestry. It's made up of moments, some vivid and joyful, and others forgotten but still significant.

These experiences can leave hidden scars, both emotional and physical, that can have a profound influence on our lives and how we show up in the world.

We Don't Know What We Don't Know

These hidden wounds can be the result of emotional turmoil, traumatic events, or physical injuries, and they often linger beneath the surface of our awareness. What makes them so potent is the way they shape our attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors in subtle yet significant ways. These scars can impact our relationships, decision-making, and even how we view ourselves.

I've been privileged to witness the relief and release when clients join the dots between a childhood experience and its direct influence on the quality of their lives. It's a powerful moment.

Let's Take an Example

Consider the emotional scars left by a childhood experience of rejection. While it might seem like a distant memory or even forgotten over time, its echoes can continue to resonate throughout our adult lives. This can show up as feelings of inadequacy which influence our relationships, self-esteem, and even career choices.

As children, we're especially vulnerable to the opinions and judgments of others. Rejections during our formative years can leave us feeling hurt and questioning our worth. What might seem like a minor incident at the time can plant seeds of doubt that grow into larger insecurities as we grow older.

The impact of childhood rejection goes beyond immediate emotional pain. It often shapes our self-perception and how we relate to others. We may internalise beliefs of unworthiness or not being good enough, which persist into adulthood. These negative self-perceptions can rule various aspects of our lives, from our ability to form intimate relationships to our willingness to pursue new opportunities for fear of rejection.

Hope for Healing

The difficulty for most of us, is that we don't remember these incidents. We don't have the capacity to understand or process the emotions and so they get buried. But the subconscious does not forget especially when strong negative feelings are involved.

Rejection is just one example of how an experience in the past can influence our lives in the present. Whatever the wound or scar, it doesn't define our worth or limit our future. We have the capacity to reshape our narratives, nurture self-compassion, and cultivate healthy relationships.

Healing modalities like BodyTalk offer hope. As a practitioner, I work with my clients to uncover the root causes of their limiting behaviours. By gently unraveling triggers, patterns, and emotional wounds, we're able to work together to achieve deep, irreversible transformation.

The AHA moments that come from this process are always accompanied by clients taking back the power lost to them over the years. By bridging the gap between past experiences and present struggles, BodyTalk offers us an opportunity to rewrite our narratives.

Who wouldn't want that for themselves?

In the next blog post, we'll look into coping mechanisms.

Until next time,

“Fiona's practice was highly recommended to me by someone whose health I had seen solidly improve. I was not certain what I needed, except to be 'unstuck'. My first two F5 BodyTalk sessions with Fiona really boosted me up a level. Phenomenal difference before and after. I am hugely grateful.”

“BodyTalk has taught me to listen better to my physical body. I often wonder if living in one’s head and not paying attention to the messages of one’s body is a cause of many of our health problems. If you seek wellness, I encourage you to listen to what your body may be telling you...”
