Hey, series of possibility. Here we go. Did you Did you notice that I missed something? Last episode. I wanted to see who would notice that you all did notice I missed my dad joke or my page joke. I can’t even believe it. Ah, well, this one. I’ll definitely make up for it. So my friend is losing her mind over a missing piece to a 5000 piece puzzle. Y’all know how much I love puzzles. I don’t know if you do, but I love them. And I have them out all the time. But if she thinks that’s bad, I’m missing for 1999. So in the process of sharing the dad jokes, I forgot that there’s an Instagram account, Dad says jokes which sometimes are really inappropriate and funny. So there you go. Play great place to find more dad jokes. If you want more. I hope you’re filling out your workbook. Awesome. I’m sure you are. So we’ll get right into it. You know that saying they say they say that time heals all wounds? I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately, like a lot, because I think what happens is we expect time to heal all wounds. And I’m not saying that time doesn’t change the perspective. And often it is easier to look back on something when there’s been some time and some space. Not arguing that that doesn’t help the process. But what I actually would not agree is that time alone heals wounds. Because I’ve seen enough from the people I work with when we’re doing our process will actually often go back to things that have happened when they were two or three in the womb were in their 20s. Right. And there is still a motion, there’s still a decision that was made in that moment that they are going back to repeatedly. And there’s been lots and lots of time. And I personally had this experience when we had a very eventful day, the day my daughter, my oldest daughter was born. And it was a very, very stressful day. And I’ve told this story in some places. So maybe you’ve heard it. But we were essentially kicked out of removed from the home. We were staying in on the day that I went into labor Munch hospital. So there were a lot of feelings I had around this house where I’d lived and this person that had kicked us out. And I for many well for a long time. As long as the rest of the time that I lived in Hawaii, this was in Hawaii, I was not able to walk or be in that neighborhood without going into full like fight or flight in my body. Like I would have a physical reaction. And of course, we moved from the island, right? Like this was not a place that I stayed permanently. So I didn’t have to go by this area. So that’s often what happens is that maybe you remove yourself from the environment or the triggers. And so you’re totally fine until you’re in a place that is similar or you’re going back to that place and you realize that it’s still all there. And that happened to me. It was still all there because at that time I didn’t know or have the tools to process this kind of event. Again, I was like well, this was a long time ago. So I’m over it I’m safe. You know, we’re all alive but we found a home. Kids are healthy, right? Nothing horrible happened and everything is good. So it’s easy from that perspective to say I shouldn’t have any emotion about this anymore. And you may write in sometimes these may be even events that you We’re saying there shouldn’t be it’s too small my conscious mind says this is not a big deal, I want you to know that you still may. And that’s okay. In my model of the world, that it’s not the time that heals it, it is sharing the story, being witnessed to the story embodying the story, emotional processing, and subconscious reprogramming that we can actually shift anything that is are tied to these old events. And it’s important to do that, it is important in my mind, because we hold on to energy, and beliefs and things stored around events, no matter how long they were ago, if we have not officially processed in move them, because often, at some point, if we shut ourselves down, if we got into a motion, if you think about what the child if they start to cry, and then we shut them down, when they do not they, if they do not fully process, whatever emotion that was in the moment, it is now stored and trapped. And trapped emotion leads to dis ease in the body. Okay, so we get to start to feel, right, just like yesterday’s episode about the power of vulnerability, and showing that in emotion, we get to feel because then I went and actively did some processes to clear the trauma around that event and around the people involved and the different things that I saw, right, because images can trigger different things or being in a certain place, or the sound of somebody’s voice, whatever it is, when I worked through that process, and worked through that event, and fully fully just released it. Then we went on a vacation and I wanted to test it, I wanted to go back to the neighborhood and back to the house. And I was able to stand right outside and have zero response. And what I watched for was to see if there was any response in my body, right, like heart palpitations or heart racing, right? Something that I’m not controlling, and I watch for and there was there was just nothing, I had totally shifted all emotion and all stories with them. And it wasn’t the time, though, it wasn’t the time. It was the processing. So I urge you to be aware of the things that you have decided, because so much time has gone by that they no longer matter, or they shouldn’t bother you. And yet they’re showing up in different ways. So if we want to have all the possibility in life, then it’s time to shift these emotions. It’s time to allow yourself to feel maybe it’s a journaling process. If you come to our trainings, and highly suggest that you get together with your buddies, right with your other practitioners, and you trade with what we have our ladies do all the time, they’ll trade with each other. So they say hey, this just came up for me. I didn’t even know this was still there. I need some help clearing it and reprogramming what we actually want. Cool. Awesome. Thank you for being here today. And I would love to end with some words of possibility.
Sophie Shepherd Quist
Hi, my name is Sophie Shepherd Quist. And I’ve been working with Zesty Ginger for about seven months. And it has completely changed my life. Because I have seen so much possibility. There are really three main ways that the tools I’ve learned through zesty ginger have helped me. The first one is releasing my stuck emotions and oh my goodness did I have a lot of shame, a lot of anger, a lot of sadness, releasing those emotions, and then having the tools to process when things come up again, allowed me to feel safe in coming off of my antidepressant, which was huge for me because I actually had been on it for an entire decade. I’ve been off it for about five months, and I’m feeling amazing. And that is in huge part due to the tools I learned through this Tejinder the second way that it’s really helped me to see possibility is working through a lot of limiting beliefs I had around certain habits and why they weren’t happening like drinking too much or staying up too late. And wanting them to be different but then never seeing the change. While I worked with zesty ginger on these habits and how to effectively make a new habit stick. It actually allowed me to do these things with ease and I’m so grateful for that because I just feel so much better. And the third way was addressing patterns like people pleasing and perfectionism. This was huge for me because these were ingrained since childhood and it has totally transformed me into the woman and the coach that I want to be and it has allowed me to know myself better and how I want to lead myself through this life. So I am eternally grateful for these tools of possibility that zesty ginger have instilled into And I can’t even wait to see what else comes from it.
