Stepping Stones

Withdrawal - Week Three

The purpose of our life journey is to give us the opportunity to experience, learn, grow and evolve into more and more of our authentic Self. The first half of life is all about moving through the experiences of life and bumping around in both the pleasant and the painful experiences that are part of everyone’s journey. The second half of life is about making sense of where we have been. As we withdraw into our inner life, we first need to make sense of the ways in which we have felt small, powerless, mistreated or misunderstood in our past. If those old stories are still stored up in our unconscious with negative emotional energy, they will have a way of getting in the way of our progress and repeating themselves until we work through them and heal them.
