Reconnecting with the Essential-Self

“What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow; our life is the creation of our mind.”


So many spiritual and psychological approaches endeavor to guide and support people to live healthier and happier. They look different from one another, but they share a fundamental similarity. They want to help you who are experiencing the disconnected self to rediscover your essential self.

The fundamental aim of therapy sessions with all its intervention modalities is to aid clients in developing and strengthening their inner capabilities to uncage themselves. Clients learn to undo their mental stubbornness to free themselves from the internal void. The internal void often tells them that they don’t belong to anybody and have to roam the wild world by him/herself only.

People with this outsized deepest void have been yearning since their earliest childhood to seek trustful connection and, most of the time, feel betrayed and rejected. This condition becomes a striking journey of love and hates simultaneously, which stationed anger and rage in the middle. Some of them who were unable to manage this dynamic reported that they were kind of experiencing nervous breakdowns. They felt like they lost control over their feelings of worry, nervousness, fear, anxiety, and depression. They were trembling, fast thinking, shortness of breath, nausea, irritability, and rage with a rapid heartbeat.

As they examined their lives in therapy, they found a startling reality that they were chronic self-saboteurs. They were controlled strongly by their social-self part, which decided what kind of person they had to become, where they had to go, and which way to choose. They lost themselves because what others think, see, feel, say, and do became the most matter in their lives, and without knowing, they hold those beliefs dearly.

Through the therapeutic journey, they found that their “self-sabotage” was in harmony with their essential desires. The experienced therapy process had freed them from the internal void: to voice the voiceless, to unmask the faceless, and to unlearn the old paths of thinking and believing.
