The Importance of Being Witnessed
Last week I had a remarkable dream where I not only forgave someone who has hurt my family very deeply, but offered this person a peace offering. I woke up feeling lighter than I have for quite a while.
The truth is that I would not have had that dream, danced that dance or been able to feel that shift if my husband Daniel hadn't WITNESSED THE FEELINGS I NEEDED TO RELEASE.
Sometimes emotional distress can run deep and the idea of forgiving might seem doable in the moment,but TRULY letting go of the pain can FEEL IMPOSSIBLE!
This applies to ALL of your relationships:

We are all doing the best we can.
We all face our own traumas, fears and failures behind closed doors. It is WHAT WE DO with our OWN feelings that can CHANGE EVERYTHING!
I needed someone to witness my pain to release it. We can all have moments when we feel powerless to an inner conflict or a conflict with another. You may have felt you have moved past it. Yet maybe hours, days or weeks later you can feel the resentment and hard feelings seep back in like a sudden chill.
