I want to thank Radavie for her offering me the opportunity to change my life. For about 2 years prior to working with her, my inner voice had been telling me it was finally time to work on my inner child issues. Like everyone else, I’d tried things over the years, and I thought I’d made progress, BUT the inner voice was unrelenting. Being me, I responded by saying “then give me someone to work with because I’ve done all I can by myself.” I absolutely knew the moment that Radavie told me what she did inner child healing that the universe had provided the help I needed.
In August I joined Radavie at the retreat. I made an agreement with myself that I would trust Radavie completely and follow where wherever she led. I bring this up because I believe most of us with inner child issues find trust hard.
I believe that a huge part of the success of the 4 day Retreat was my willingness to not second guess and more importantly not analyze or intellectualize. As an analyst by training and a strong T on the MBTI – this was tantamount to asking a fish to fly or a bird to swim, but my word is my bond – even with myself. I am stressing this so strongly because I believe (at least for me) that it is what allowed me to turn the key on the locked part of my psyche known as my inner child.
To say it was transformative would be an understatement. By the end of the 4 day Retreat, the anger that was a continuous low-level presence in my life had died down to a candle flame.
It is now 6 months later, and the question any logical person would ask is, “Has it really worked? Has my life changed?” The answer is yes. Not only has it changed but much more importantly it has continued to change. I found, upon reflection that everything in my life centered around being safe and in control. Of course, most of us could say that, but I realized that I had taken the childhood wound and indirectly dedicated my life not just to making myself safe, but to showing others how they could be safer and hopefully, have more joy in their working lives. I’m fortunate to feel I made lemonade out of lemons, BUT what I am finding now is that I am FREE to make completely different decisions, without fear or anger.
I will be honest – freedom feels strange and a little stressful, but it’s allowing me to rethink who I want to be in this new chapter of my life. It’s too soon to know what decisions I’m going to make – after all life is a journey, but I can say without reservation I would not be exploring my options without the help that Radavie gave me. Radavie, DeDe (my inner child) and I thank you from the bottom of our shared heart.
