The Shame and guilt experiences we have can open us to life! They can expand our field of feeling-experiences and stimulate our growth. This is what doing the work of depth psychotherapy can bring you: the exploration of how do we take these feeling-experiences and begin to transcend, to develop new dimensions of experiences, to get the whole rainbow of the human experience: the joy world, the ecstasy world, the trauma world, the caring of others world, the anxiety world … – the whole continuum in our world of feelings and experiences.
Our field of experiences do not stop just because we stop or avoid them. To create a heightened growth of awareness in my sensitivities, creates a larger capacity to attune to others, realizing that we affect others all the time!
This is one of the heart-work we do in the work of therapy.
