Web bonanza #5: the importance of a support system, working with the medicine wheel and being yourself while changing the world

Back on the chair, I’m determined to present you with some useful information around the web. But first…

In fairness, though, life is intense… I’ve been mainly spending time with my son Sylvian, doing school runs, parks, parents’ meetings and the likes. And talking to his new teacher/carer. Well, things are complicated but I’m willing to work with the issues and repair as much of what has been done in the past.

The truth is that we are a collection, or a collage, of what we have been through and what has happened so we have to work with our wounds and scars and try heal them as much as we can. School for us has been a sensitive subject and we’ve been through some rough patches. Things are erupting again but this time I’ve enlisted some professional help.

Lately I’ve been recognising the importance of having a support system, something I’ve never really had. And this isn’t only family and friends, although it doesn’t exclude them either, but it’s more people who you can talk to just about anything, receive support and compassion, feel understood and accepted, and when necessary been comforted and consoled.

On my second session of Inner Child Work, I understood and felt that I’ve been taught how to be strong and independent and self-reliant but I’ve never been showed what support and a safe harbour are.

I’ve been going through the storms by myself all my life, trying to stay afloat, but more and more I understand that I can’t actually do it for much longer.

In fact, for the last week or two I’ve been feeling the strong feel of the abyss under me and the feeling of desperation catching on me.

I’ll leave it there for now and would like to share a few valuable and inspirational links with you. Get comfy and grab a drink!

I'm Vilina Christoph and I share my journey of healing and transformation. My awakening was triggered by the death of my mother and sister of cancer. When the feelings became too much to handle, I started documenting my experiences of dealing with depression and anxiety, coping with the loss and grief, and the general lack of motivation and joy in life.  Since the beginning of this journey of transformation I've learned compassion, acceptance and love for myself and others. My mission is to encourage others to look into their pain and take on the path of self-love. By accepting who you are with all your imperfections, by loving yourself fully with all your wounds, you find the strength to be your most authentic self and you unlock your unique gifts in the world.
