Coming to the Table with Your Inner Truth

Coming to the table means more than sharing a meal together. It is an opportunity to get in touch with your inner truth, the ability to listen to others to hear their truth, and to work with communication that transforms your relationships to create greater freedom, love, and growth within and with others.

Contacting Your Inner Truth

Contacting your inner truth with the ability to resonate with life-energizing beliefs, discernment, and truth opens the door to positive change in your life. Repetitive negative patterns point to underlying truths related to your need for nurture. Listening to your inner sadness, your need for bonding or respect, fear, or hurt due to life-depleting or limiting earlier experiences in your body-mind system creates more inclusive support for your body-mind system.

“Don’t take anything literally but always look deeper. For example, if you drink too much, what is your soul looking for in the alcohol? If you eat too much, what part of your soul is in need of nourishing? Think poetically and never respond on a surface level.”
.~Thomas Moore from Care of the Soul

It is important to be kind to yourself in the midst of situations and circumstances that push these internal buttons, some you might not even have known existed until you look at these daemons (teachers) trying to get your attention. Taking the compassionate journey within means that you listen to these messages not only what your mind is telling you, but what your body is experiencing to create transformation. By doing so, you are bringing to the table the potential for new courage, strength, and discernment related to your life patterns today nourished by the truth that emerges from the insight of other parts of yourself including your adult parts and Higher Self.

Coming to the Table with Your Own Truth

When you realize that you are repeating the same patterns in your life today perpetuated to manage or protect a part of yourself that feels sad, angry, hurt, hate, afraid, abandoned, or betrayed, you allow the awareness of these parts with their messages to be included in your view of what is happening in your life today.

The path to experiencing joy, freedom, and presence starts with looking at places in your life where your body-mind system has held on to the suffering. This suffering is not diminished by placating or wallpapering over the pain from the past. Many times hurt parts might not know or feel like there is a way out, or that there is another option for experiencing life. Your body-mind system acts out the painful experiences in tension, difficulties with boundaries or letting go, inability to sleep, or feeling stuck with physical, emotional, and mental pain.

The important message is that through integrity, transparency, and truth, the experiences of your life through time can benefit from the development of your brain to include higher executive function as an adult, This means that when faced with challenges you can take your time, breathe, and tune in to the parts of yourself that are responding to the present before making a decision about communication or action.

Other parts of yourself that are connected to your creativity, ingenuity, tenacity, and wisdom from life experiences as you became an adult with your Higher or Greater Self are parts of your inner truth. Through acknowledging hurt parts, and connecting to Source even in dire straights today it is possible to update the needs of the parts of the self that feel isolated, scared, hurt, and abandoned while responding from your greater self through getting in touch with the needs of these parts. This then frees other parts of yourself to develop more fully.

Bringing Your Truth to the Table with Another Person

Your life energy flow within and between others is dependent on how you come to the table with your perception of yourself. This flow is tempered by how your body-mind system interacts with internal beliefs, attitudes, and responses to what your mind believes is true. Staying open to what else could be true for you or the situation can also expand your awareness.

You are only able to see as much of another person as you are able to see of yourself. Coming to the table with what will sustain your wellness and well-being so that you can let go and heal yourself happens by giving mercy to your feelings and voice to your needs. By valuing what is true for you, you can also extend mercy, compassion, and empathy to others. This happens because you understand your emotions, take and give with discernment, and offer the same respect and value to your conversations and interactions.

“We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversations with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.”~ Thomas Moore

Expressing your truth and hearing the truth of another person can sometimes feel difficult. However, knowing that painful parts of another person might be speaking allows for the opportunity to get to the heart of what else could be true in the situation. It is easier to get to the truth with an understanding between you when you can listen to the other person more fully, and when fear or resistance does not drive the conversation,

Preparing the table for honesty and integrity allows you to slow down, take your time, and the opportunity to take in the words or meaning of what is being communicated. Build your capacity to be present with another person with your body, your attention, your gaze, and your intention to create safety and trust to nurture non-violent communication between both of you. To truly get the core messages, you can ask the other person to repeat back what they heard you say, or for you to repeat back what you heard the other person say to you to create the space for listening to check for understanding.

Taking Care of Your Relationship Energy Circuit

Expression of needs is different from projecting blame and shaming another person. It is also important to consider when and with whom to share your truth. Disagreements can and will happen. When challenges arise, it is important to offer yourself and the other person the opportunity to take some time to sit with what is being expressed or asked. This creates honor and respect for the sacredness of your communication and relationship. You can do this with a Pause for Centering.

The aim and goal of your communications are to access your inner truth to create growth, harmony, and balance in the energy flow within and in your relationship. This allows you to get in touch with what actions, words, or direction you truly need to consider for what is life-energizing for your wellness and well-being.
