A huge piece of who we are is where we came from. Our personality and our beliefs are shaped from a very early age by the people around us and the stories they told.
We describe ourselves by our family name, our heritage, where we grew up, and our nationality. This type of connection to our past is important and healthy, but there are times when it becomes a problem.
It becomes easy to use these descriptions of who we are as a way of limiting ourselves unnecessarily, for example:
- The men in my family were never good at sharing their emotions
- You know how hot tempered we Irish are
- The women in my family always have had trouble with love
In this interview with EFT Master Jacqui Crooks we talk about the conscious and subconscious ways in which we adopt these beliefs as our own, how debilitating they can be, and what we can do to release them in a healthy way without damaging our connection with the people we love.
