Have you ever found yourself in a negative emotional pattern that seems to be an ongoing, recurring theme in your life?
Dysfunction is described as a pathology that manifests itself in the form of a painful outcome. It reveals a defect in perception that becomes a root thought pattern that is controlling your life.
Dysfunction comes in many forms, and it doesn’t always refer to relationships either. It can manifest itself in the form of our eating habits, distractions, or even financial well being.
For anyone who has experienced this, it can be emotionally debilitating, and exhausting.
Often you’ll find yourself wondering why these negative experiences keep happening to you, or you’ll notice that you keep reliving the same negative experiences in different forms.
For example, if you’re in a relationship and it’s clearly toxic, yet you still feel this magnetic pull to stay, even though it has become totally unhealthy to your well being.
Or when you finally find the courage to leave that situation, but years down the line you’re in another relationship with someone else, only to discover the same theme showing up – and it happens again and again and again.
While these divine assignments are meant for your highest good, let’s be real, it can be frustrating, right?
So the question is, how do you stop this vicious cycle?
The answer to all of these questions is – when you no longer value pain.
And, in order to fully understand why you value pain, you must understand it’s source.
The good news is once you identify the root source, you can bring the cycle to completion.
There are 4 P’s of Dysfunction:
This is a pivotal moment that caused you emotional pain in the past, usually going back to your childhood. It manifests itself into various forms and themes in your life in the present. If you have a journal, you can gently log down some of these pivotal moments to help identify the source in order to complete it.
Your perception is formed by how you see yourself internally. It becomes the lens through which you interpret your life, and the world as you see it. Most of us walk around with an incomplete perception which filters our experiences through the lens of lack, scarcity and powerlessness. A wounded inner-life then manifests into a wounded outer-life.
Once perceptions are formed by your past experiences, you then form recurring thought patterns which becomes a pathology, your way of thinking. For example, if your parent walked out on you as a child, you might now believe that everyone in you’re present life will abandon you.
The unconscious desire to prove your internal beliefs, and recreate a painful, pivotal experience of the past.
The key to healing dysfunctional patterns is going deep within oneself to determine how and why the pain that you keep on experiencing is feeding you.
The ego will validate the pain, as a means of proving your internal beliefs of feeling unworthy, small, powerless, and not good enough.
Finding the courage to break up with these soul-debilitating beliefs can take time — however awareness is half the battle.
For the brave soul, letting go of the past is the door to igniting personal power and emotional freedom.
