The truth is, we are all flawed or broken in some way but we don’t have to cast away or discard these aspects of ourselves. These aspects can make us stronger and more resilient if we take the time to gather the pieces of our psyche/soul, which have been damaged through trauma, abandonment or just the daily struggle of life. We can mend the fractures through self-exploration, compassion, curiosity, and understanding towards our self. This is the journey to wholeness and the cracks are how the light of wisdom and healing get in.
If you’re interested in gathering the pieces together and starting the journey towards healing, I would be honored to be a part of your journey. Give me a call or email me and we can get started!
