Here is a video on the topic of Defenses.
Defenses are long-ingrained behavior patterns whose purpose is to keep us from experiencing or being aware of overwhelming painful emotions.
Defenses are often unconscious, generally formed at an early age, initially involuntary, and can be quite resistant to change.
Defenses are the behavior patterns of the False Self.
Defenses are walls that we have erected around our hearts in order to feel safe.
We were created for relationship, for loving interactions with each other, and that means sharing together, heart to heart. Our walls, our Defenses, keep us from the beauty and tenderness of heart to heart, open loving relationships.
So, our walls need to come down. Our Defenses need to be dismantled. And this is not an easy process.
Tune in to learn more about Defenses and ways in which we can intentionally cooperate with the dismantling of our Defenses, so that our relationships can blossom into the safe and nourishing connections that we were created to enjoy.
Blessings to let go of everything that blocks satisfying relationships,
