“We are psychological, emotionally, cognitively and spiritually hardwired for Connection, love and belonging. Connection, along with love and belonging is why we are here, and it is what gives purpose and meaning to our lives.” Brene Brown
What is Connection?
The definition: a relation of personal intimacy (as of family ties). A person connected with another especially by marriage, kinship, or common interest
Brene Brown defines it as: “energy that is created between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment”
What it is NOT:
To help us understand what connection is, it is useful to know what it is NOT. It is not
SHAME: (The FEAR of Disconnection). The intensely painful feeling or experience of believing that we are clawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging. Connection!
It is not JUDGMENT, it is not PERFECTIONISM, it is not NUMBING out!
Benefits of Connection
Connection with God – Healthy One- fundamentally LOVE or FEAR?
When you have a true connection with God, one that is fundamentally based in love not fear, it changes everything.
It changes everything; it changes how you respond to other people, it changes the decisions that you make.
Connection with Self – Creating Love and Trust in your relationship with yourself.
I work with my clients to create a connection with themselves, creating love and trust in that relationship with themselves. If they can love themselves completely and they can trust themselves completely, it changes everything! Because you suddenly feel connected with who you are and who you are meant to become. It helps you to fulfill your purpose and your mission here in life.
Connection with Others – Being vulnerable and open – inviting them to do the same.
Connecting with others is more important than you might think. Social connection can lower anxiety and depression, help us regulate our emotions, lead to higher self-esteem and empathy, and actually improve our immune systems. By neglecting our need to connect, we put our health at risk.
Connection also brings purpose and meaning to our lives that we can live our lives in abundance. What does that even mean? It means that we live our lives on purpose and are filled with hope.
Also allows us to repair wounds. It also allows us to heal ourselves and then. Help to heal others through our compassion and our connection. Then you are able to bless other people’s lives because you are ready to connect authentically with them that your sphere of influence widens it enlarges.
