Empowerment Call, DAY 5

by Jim on August 5, 2013

Step 5.

We share with another person, ourselves, and the Universe, all those things inside of us for which we feel shame and guilt.

Openly sharing where I’ve felt shame and guilt is a super challenge that we ALL have– it’s way hard, and I get that. AND. It’s one of the ways that clears out our inner pain so we can live our lives more fully. Many of us hold onto shame and guilt and they become secrets…secrets that eat us up inside.

People will go to their graves with guilt and shame of something, even of not sharing their own guilt and shame. In this step, I’m challenging you to share some small secret with someone that’s safe for you to share.

Another opportunity here is to make a list of things about which you feel shame or guilt, and really examine the shame and guilt around these issues. Then, per this step’s challenge, share one of the things on the list. It’s important to take ownership of what I don’t like…the guilt, the shame that I have,  and then I can start sharing it.

Are you ready to share a part of your guilt and shame? That’s the homework.
