How can we genuinely love ourselves if we do not know who we are creatively? Embracing our natural differences allows us to be seen for our uniqueness. We need to stop hiding and engage others without fear. Radiant Self Unifying Love is transformative, healing and radiant!
Love is an internal experience of our energetic creative connection to everything that exists. The more we embody this connection, the easier and more joyful it is to share ourselves with others. Our ability to receive Love grows as we give it. Obstacles to this process are Attachments to infatuations, Positions about how we want others to treat us and Beliefs about our â€˜specialnessâ€™ that trap us in self-limiting expressions of Love. Instead of experiencing Love through the distortions of Excitement and Intensity, or the Romantic Mythology of Idealized Love we can, instead, step into the creative world of Aliveness, Wisdom, enthusiasm and peacefulness. As we learn to love, we regenerate an authentic sense of Self that produces greater clarity and a natural connection to all that is.
One way we know we are loving ourselves is how much we can honor and engage others in our Primary Creative Expression. If we are unable to give of ourselves in this way, it indicates we have not yet fully embraced Radiant, Self-Unifying Love. Individuals who live this possibility operate from service and demonstrate a capacity to give that is not concerned about how much they get in return; they receive great joy in the giving. How much do you limit your ability to contribute to others? How much do we use our Defenses to keep others at bay (so they will not want something from us we do not want to give)? Radiant, Self-Unifying Love is how we maximize our fulfillment. Whenever we inhibit our Primary Creative Expression, we limit the joy and passion that make life worth living.
Defenses place us on the path of self-limitation, creative repression and intense, insecure relationshipsâ€¦ So why do we invest in them? Defenses provide simplistic half-truths that require no effort and encourage us to play a predictable role.
Since Defenses limit our perceptions, interfere with our creative ability, and limit our consciousness and presence, are we now ready to transform our lives through Defensive Healing? Healing requires Unity thinking, understanding our pre-existing patterns and accepting self-forgiveness. This class invites and teaches us how to balance and express our inner masculine and feminine under all circumstances without becoming polarized by the demands and desires of others. We not only focus on how to release our own Defensive framework, but how to neutralize the defenses of those around us who are different.
Experience the unconscious pain of Defensive Distortions with class partners. Discover how intractable we become. In this way we work to embody our patterns so they become obvious. We will explore how our defences process work. Do not miss it!
When we engage the interpersonal modeling process for defenses it quickly allows us to recognize our personal blocks. This combination of definitions, presentations and processes allows participants to work through and understand the unidentified Attachments, Positions and Projections that get us into trouble. Their are four main defense processes: 1) Unpacking Our Defence Patterns: 2) Objectification Blues; 3) Subjectification Slams; and 3) Idealiization Chasms. Each of these processes are done in groups of four with the same sytle defense so we become mirrors to each other. Being with others in this process means healing in a memorable environment with others who become our support team.
Experience the unconscious pain of Defensive Distortions in a clay modeling process with class partners. Each participant beigins by defining their particicular Defense with three other with the same defense. We see and realize our intentions are not conveyed by our Defense.
This combination of definitions, presentations and processes allows us to work through and understand the unidentified Attachments, Positions and Projections that get us in trouble. Most importantly, we begin to see the cost and limitations when operating in a Defense.The completion of these models requires that all members will know the elements of a defense, how it is misused, and why it is not appropiate, particularly for opposite defense style individuals. This process open our eyes to the way defenses make false assumptions, expect certain responses, and end up distancing more based on personal confusion in the results.
