The Peace Power Path was predicated on a rock solid belief that we are all capable of healing ourselves.
I know it has worked for me, but I just didn't really know exactly how.
Yesterday I had a clue:
I was talking to a client that had had a PPP release earlier in the week. He had released an energetic pattern of perfectionism, and a core underlying energetic pattern/belief/fear that he was unloveable. Two days after our session, he made a mistake. A big, public one, that involved his kids. (Nothing harmful, just publicly embarrassing.) In the past this was exactly the type of thing that would cause a shame spiral. Instead, as he was moving through the experience, he had a realization: it was just a mistake.
He realized that he was having an awareness of being kind to himself.
Rather than his usual coping technique of judging himself, berating himself, hiding his mistake, etc, he was aware that it was just a mistake.
This always happens within a day or two of the PPP - we experience an event differently, with an awareness that we are experiencing it differently.
We are calmer, more peaceful, have more clarity and awareness, and sometimes even participate in/heal a painful relationship dynamic - we show up more as who we want to be.
And that is a radically different internal experience of our lives. We are not flooded with stress/cortisol, or shame, we do not shrink and get small, we do not lose sleep over an event, we do not fight and over react.
All those toxic emotions and chemicals never flood our brains, bodies, cells. And removing those toxic emotions from our bodies is deeply healing.
Now, imagine doing the Peace Power Path every day. Imagine never feeling those toxic chemicals and emotions again.
How much energy would be freed up for living life more joyously, more spaciously, more freely?
