Is Your Sense of Worth Tied to the Approval of Others?
It’s Not You — It’s Your Programming:
Childhood emotional neglect leaves us with TRUST ISSUES. As adults, we NEVER ask for help and believe we must tackle life's hardships completely on our own. Feeling ignored has caused us to repress our needs, minimize our pain, and accept whatever crumbs fall into our lap. We have trouble finding our purpose in life, and our thinking can be disorganized. No one taught us how to process or regulate our emotions and as a result, we are then prone to food, chemical, and relationship addiction. In the throes of addiction, we can run from our invisible scars. We are haunted by shame, and blame ourselves for things we are not responsible for. Our sense of worth is tied to the approval of others, which leaves us sensitive to the slightest of criticisms. We never feel good enough, and self neglect. Our scars are invisible, even to us, which can leave us locked within subconscious loops of self sabotaging habitual thinking and behaviors, such as codependency.
Breaking Toxic Patterns:
Adult children of alcoholics and those of us who were raised by immature or narcissistic parents, struggle to admit that our childhoods left us with emotional scars. The unpredictable nature of our childhood homes, left us needing to abandon the self for the sake of focusing on others. We are adults who have lost our identities and live in servitude to others. We believe our worth is tied to how useful we can become, often to those with little empathy. Our conditioning forces us to deny our feelings and to worry more about others than ourselves. As children, these survival strategies helped us avoid more pain, yet as adults, these same coping mechanisms drive us to develop people-pleasing traits and codependent tendencies that have been accepted as truth by the subconscious mind. These traits are survival strategies we have yet to outgrow. Learning to live above the veil of consciousness, is your opportunity to heal the generational trauma responsible for codependency.
You Can't Change What You Can't See:
Up until the age of seven, children are in THETA hypnotic brainwave states. This means that what you observed consistently over time in your childhood, has become your default way of viewing yourself as well as the world. Your blueprints for relationships, careers, self worth, financial wealth, and even your physical health were created in childhood, and by the way Dear One, that's not your fault. However, unless you AWAKEN and learn to REPROGRAM your SUBCONSCIOUS MIND your life will continue to unfold as a mirror of your painful past. The GREAT NEWS is, with my 12 Week Breakthrough Program, transformative guided meditations, and my 1-2-3 Emotional Detachment Technique, you can RADICALLY transform your subconscious mind and FINALLY liberate yourself from toxic generational patterns of the past!

Are you ready to level up?
We are smart men and women, who make poor choices again and again unaware that our subconscious mind is stuck in survival strategies we relied on as children.

I want to teach you my TRANSFORMATIONAL tools so that you can LEVEL UP in every area of your life. When you develop confidence in your talents, your mind, and your decision-making process, you become a MAGNET for authentic love and fulfilling careers, and you also become a healthy role model for your children.
Are you codependent in relationships?
If you're codependent your relationships are enmeshed and your boundaries are distorted. You lose yourself worrying about what your partner thinks, needs, or wants and your sense of self is dependent upon external validation. You may find yourself easily falling for people you can fix, or you believe you can heal. The fear of abandonment fuels denial.
Do you believe a relationship can save you?
Codependency is a coping and survival strategy adult children from dysfunctional homes rely on to avoid pain. Childhood emotional neglect and often, narcissistic abuse by parents, leaves invisible scars. As a result, a codependent will ache to attach themselves to others, falsely believing a relationship can save them, all below the veil of consciousness.
Were you abused by a narcissist?
More than half of the women involved with narcissistic relationships have no history of childhood trauma or codependency traits. However, after loving, working, or having a relationship with a narcissist, coercive control tactics like gaslighting, and trivializing your emotions, will have you feeling frozen, confused, and dependent upon a narcissist's opinion, as well as treatment towards you. Breaking through the cognitive dissonance caused by narcissistic abuse tactics is key.
Were your parents' alcoholics or narcissistic?
Those of us with a family history of alcoholism can become isolated. By default, we fear authority figures and become approval seekers. We are over-responsible, focus on the needs of others, and abandon our needs. We can become easily addicted to chaos, confuse love with pity, and fear abandonment. We are often dependent upon others perceiving us as 'good'. We are reactors rather than actors in our lives, without a solid, and positive sense of self we can rely on to help us make healthy life choices, set boundaries, and honor the self.

When we are codependent,
we are not independent.
As codependents we tend to attach and in the attaching to some external relationship, person, or experience, we detach from the self.
Codependency is a faulty way of viewing the self as well as the world. The lens that we view life through is tainted but we don't know it. All human beings are born asleep, but again, we don't know it. What has been impressed upon the subconscious mind while we were children and in hypnotic brainwave states has become the maps we use to navigate our adult lives. If our childhoods were chaotic, unsafe, and unpredictable, as adults we attract people, situations, and experiences that mirror what took place in our lives when we were children.
- What we believe we see. If we have been taught to believe we are unworthy or that life is unsafe, we will live our lives waiting for the next shoe to drop.
- When our lives have been unpredictable and we have been conditioned to suppress and deny our emotions, as adults we may seek to CONTROL others as well as things and situations that are outside our ability to control.
- When we are codependent, we fail to set personal as well as external boundaries. We may live in a perpetual state of powerlessness, and seeking to fend off hidden shame.
- Gaslighting is a form of psychological and emotional abuse aimed at gaining control and power over a victim. Many wounded adult children have suffered from gaslighting as well as other forms of abuse. Gaslighting causes victims to doubt their reality.
- Children who have grown up in homes that were abrasive, dysfunctional, hostile, emotionally abusive, and alike, are more prone to depression, anxiety, reactivity, and codependency.
As adults, we owe it to ourselves to awaken from the dream state that codependency is, so we can finally live the authentic lives every human being has the potential to live.
