Most of us have such psychological “blind spots,” aspects of our personalities that are obvious to everyone but ourselves. You can find the answers if you care to—or more accurately, if you dare to. This is the roughest mission you can undertake: a direct seek-and-destroy attack on your own pockets of denial.
Identifying your own blind spots is an exercise in paradox, because if you’re aware of a problem, it doesn’t count.
Our guest today, Joe Ryan, has been on a lifelong journey of overcoming trauma, shame, and the demons that plague him as a result of childhood abuse.
With often bone-jarring honest and authentic vulnerability, he is sharing his invaluable insight; paving the way to help others heal from the turmoil and distress of past traumatic experiences.
Joe and I explore how we each can become more emotional connected to uncover and understand our emotional blind spots, empowering us to recognize past trauma triggers so we might mi e behind emotional reactivity. Being emotional and emotionally connected to self are two very unique and different states.
Joe teaches how to go inward, facing our trauma triggers, so we might uncover those hidden blind spots which allow us to become fully engaged and present.
Tune in to find out how lean into those often uncomfortable emotions. In the process, learning how to become more comfortable with your authentic self on this episode of- The Light Inside.
