Do we use language or does language use us? This wise question is posed by integrative clinical psychologist Asha Dullabh. She will be featured on the webinar ‘Balance stress naturally‘ on The Longevity Channel, 8 August 2020. How does the power of our words effect us?
Becoming intimate with oneself is a tough and challenging journey. You are forced to delve deep into your vulnerable self. You are forced to really face, head on and embrace, your inner dialogue. This dialogue you engage with every moment of your existence.
We live in a harsh world of judgement, non-acceptance and apathy, all of which start within ourselves. The power of our words,our own thoughts, the way we judge ourselves, the words we say to ourselves, our inner dialogue forms part of our stories.
In my work with clients, I do not want to hear what they glibly say to others. I want to hear what they have never dared to share with others. The words that they have not spoken is where the fear, shame, guilt exists which manifest in dis-ease and disease. I encounter this daily with those who seek healing. All of which begins with a single thought and escalates into an internal dialogue that become our life scripts that we play out naturally day after day. Life is like performing on a stage, playing different roles, wearing several masks that ultimately distract us from really connecting with our true authentic self.
There is such power in sharing our stories, our life scripts. It is in our real sharing of our stories that we can heal each other.
