Client Journal: Fear of the Depth of Sadness

Client: I exploded. I exploded. My heart became light. I can breathe. I cried I broke. I feel open. I feel something flowing through and out of  me. My chest broke. The broken pieces melted and flowed through. I broke down and I exploded. My chest felt heavy. I hit the pillows until I broke open. Now I am here coming back from where I was. I am back. I am here. And I look back and wonder about the grief that came out of my body. The pain, the crying. Where did it all come from? Have I really been keeping that locked inside this whole time? How sad? It’s been living in me and I kept it locked in all this time. How sad. So much pain hidden and trapped and I’m sure there is more there. More sitting inside of me, living and dwelling, resting in my heart to heal.

Marta: What stops you from going deeper into your sadness?

Client: I don’t want to see it.  I am afraid of the depth of my sadness. I am afraid of knowing how sad I really am.

Marta: Do you want to learn from your sadness?  Learn to take care of it with love instead of judgment? Feel the beauty of the sadness as the healing of your heart?

Client: I’m afraid and I want to.

Marta: Sadness is a connection to the soul of your little girl’s heart. She needs to be seen and received in this sadness. The anger is a defense against the healing of the sadness. When you embrace sadness it becomes compassion…and it helps you to understand your how much you need to be loved, recognized, treated with kindness and care. It helps you set boundaries, make discernment and choices in how you want to be treated in life. Keep going at a slow pace. Bit by bit, step by step…your heart is a tender organ…when it breaks open, it is allowing the light to come in…
