This Saturday, Raphael Awen and I will be hosting our third Men’s Group Call over Zoom. We will be connecting hearts around the topic of the Punisher/Shame loop that happens inside of many men.
This dynamic feels to be quite a pivotal part of any man’s healing journey. It has manifested so many unhealthy choices and actions in individuals and in the collective. It holds so much anchoring energy and a huge block to drawing the life that we truly wish to experience as human beings.
I can remember this feeling early on in my life as a child. That inner voice that would judge me and pick me apart. Then there were the feelings of shame whenever I was told I had done something ‘wrong’. That feeling of Shame can be responded to in a passive inbound fashion or an outbound, defensive one.
I tended to get defensive as a boy and then at some point it internalized and became an quiet battle within. I could feel parts of me shrink as a shroud would come over me. Another part would try and counter with some okayness and go about the day.
The loop of punishment and shame was a heavy anchor in my heart and soul. It cut off my expression and my own self-worth. I felt impotent and dulled. This dynamic feels pervasive in so many of us. I can see how it has contributed to either the disempowered man or the aggressive, dominating man. It may be the root of the Narcissist we have all had our experience with (which if could be seen and felt, there could be some compassion and healing with them.)
This dynamic is something that starts at an early age and also has roots in our soul memory as well. This is met and unwound by meeting with these two parts of you locked in a spin-cycle. It keeps you as the seat of power and Love to come to the forefront. To lead the way to a more healthy and self-loving relationship with the World. It opens the door to your inherent self-worth, Joy, and peace.
Please join Raphael and I on Saturday where we will talk more about this dynamic from the SoulFullHeart lens as well a provide a guided meditation for you to see and feel this dynamic inside of you so that you can begin the process of understanding, healing, and transformation into a more alive and authentically loving you.
