Embrace Your Life - Wilfried Nelles - ebook
Opis

Regardless of how grown up we feel and present ourselves in many aspects of our lives, our child feelings and behavioral patterns deeply impact our daily lives, especially where emotions come into play. We may act as adults, but we feel like children. And yet we all come with an inner vision into this world, a very specific and unique potential that wants to unfold through us during the course of our lives. But through our internal life struggles, we often forget it and lose touch with it. Using the Life Integration Process, Wilfried Nelles introduces a constellation method to help us see and feel our life's inner vision and thereby guide us to our psychological maturity and adulthood.

Chapter 1

“I WANT TO FINALLY BE AN ADULT.”

The concern of psychology is solely that the individual becomes what he is, regardless of what that may be in any given case.

Wolfgang Giegerich1

The woman next to me pulled a serious face and her voice sounded determined. It was the voice of someone who had finally made a decision after a long period of contemplation: “I want to finally be an adult.” She was a pretty, medium-sized, slender, blonde woman with big blue eyes, and full sensual lips. Her make-up was discreet and she was always perfectly dressed. Her expression was usually more dreamy than resolute and her engaging smile was an irresistible magnet, drawing you in whenever she looked at you. It wasn’t difficult to imagine her as a child who could easily wrap her fingers around her father, and how difficult it must be for most men to resist pleasing her and fulfilling her wishes.

A woman-child, both attractive and unhappy. She was well aware of her weapons, wearing them like a second skin, and though she used them well (though unconsciously and automatically) she also hated them.

She sensed that even though they gave her the control, using these weapons meant she would always remain the child. She had become fed up of living the life of this woman-child and so began a year earlier to uncover her issues in family constellations and individual one-on-one sessions. All that work gradually culminated in her decision: I’ve had enough; I no longer want to be the cute little girl. I want to finally be an adult!
