Module 4 Emotional Healing

  • We all need emotional healing in one way or another. We, at The IHCI beleive that in order to sustain emotional healing, and refrain from reverting back to limiting past patterns, a deep excavation of one's foundation must take place.

 

  • This involves "shining the flash light in the dark corners of our being", in order to get very clear on what an individuals limiting beliefs are, where they came from and also what the individuals core-values and core purpose in life are.

 

  • From here, we can discover what emotions are stuck and use the appropriate tools to commence the Emotional Healing process in a wholistic and balanced manner - one that lasts.
