Unpacking our Emotional Baggage for Improved Relationships
Lucky for us, every interaction with the people in our lives is an opportunity to become more aware of the patterns we need to release. Our relationships are like mirrors, reflecting the parts of ourselves that are healthy and balanced, as well as the unresolved layers of emotional pain. Sometimes our interactions with others trigger these old layers and our so-called buttons get pushed, causing us to react with defensiveness, sadness, or maybe by closing our hearts to protect ourselves. These interactions can provide deep healing if we are willing to look at what we have buried inside and how the past is affecting our current life and relationships.

The essences featured in this article increase our self-awareness by shining a light on the emotional and mental patterns we must address to live more freely.
