📺 IWFGG | Why Just Healing Your Inner Struggles Isn't Enough





00:00:02.040 --> 00:00:12.719

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Hello hello, and welcome to Inner Work for Greater Good, my name is Emily Eldredge, as always, I am the creator of the ChangeLight System, the founder of ChangeLight.


00:00:13.019 --> 00:00:18.450

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And my whole purpose is to teach you, those of you who are passionate about making a difference in the world.


00:00:18.870 --> 00:00:29.340

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Inner work that can accelerate your power to do so, this inner work is all about healing your inner struggles clearing out those parts of you that get in the way of you feeling fully at peace and fully empowered.


00:00:29.670 --> 00:00:36.990

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: As well as bringing forward your inner powers which I call those emPowers for those of you who've been watching this before.


00:00:37.380 --> 00:00:44.820

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And really get you aligned with your inner Truth, which is who you are that inner knowing excuse me of who you are.


00:00:45.240 --> 00:00:54.900

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And who you are here to be it's that compass your inner compass that guides you, through your life to really become the presence that you're here to be.


00:00:55.260 --> 00:01:03.030

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and makes a difference that you're here to make us that presence so first of all I want to point out, I think I did this last time, like here's what's going on with my hands.


00:01:03.900 --> 00:01:09.030

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: This week, just because i'm sure it's probably distracting to see me going like this and going what is going on with her.


00:01:09.480 --> 00:01:22.020

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So, as always, I have eczema so I had to cover you know bandage that but i'm actually, as you can see it's a different background i'm back in Vermont, which is where my first episode was filmed and my parents have a house up here and so.


00:01:23.130 --> 00:01:33.900

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: i've been helping my mother touch up paint on the wall, so I did take a shower this morning, and yet the paint is still with me so just so you know you know everything's okay it's just my hands are a mess.


00:01:34.590 --> 00:01:53.670

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But frequently rms i'm afraid i'm not one of those people who, like gets pedicures manicures or any of that stuff but any case so i'm so happy you're here, so what I want to talk to you about today is this thought of why is it that just healing your inner struggles isn't enough.


00:01:54.750 --> 00:02:05.550

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: i'm bringing this up, because there are a number of modalities out there, that really are focused on you know techniques for healing the inner struggles and and and and there's so many different ways of doing so, and I really honor those ways.


00:02:05.910 --> 00:02:16.140

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: One of the things that I discovered in my own work, because I, let me just put it this way when I first started this work, it really was focused on Okay, how do we heal these blocks triggers blue.


00:02:16.710 --> 00:02:25.920

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: wounds blind spots all this stuff that gets in the way of US truly feeling at peace and fulfilling our purpose and being the presence that we can be, and that we are here to be.


00:02:26.250 --> 00:02:29.160

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And that came out of my own struggles as i've shared very openly.


00:02:29.760 --> 00:02:40.350

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: In terms of feeling so blocked and so self critical and so self loathing and having all kinds of anxieties and all kinds of insecurities and you know Rachel reactions, you know triggers.


00:02:40.950 --> 00:02:50.880

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so I really was focused, from the very beginning on how do I heal this stuff because this is the stuff that was getting in the way this is the stuff that was causing me pain.


00:02:51.180 --> 00:03:04.950

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so that in the beginning, is really the focus and that's oftentimes what drives us to heal ourselves, you know or to seek out healing modalities is because we're in pain is because we are.


00:03:05.760 --> 00:03:12.210

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: uncomfortable within ourselves or because we're having issues in our relationships or some kind of patterns, which keeps showing up.


00:03:12.570 --> 00:03:25.680

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so we're like I don't want to keep doing this, I want to change, and I want my life to change and so usually it's pain that draw our fears other other all kinds of pain right that drives us to.


00:03:26.430 --> 00:03:37.290

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: start to do the inner work and start to really address those aspects within that are preventing us from really feeling at peace with ourselves and feeling fully empowered.


00:03:37.680 --> 00:03:42.990

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So for years that's what I focused on for myself, and in my own work was the.


00:03:43.590 --> 00:03:56.220

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: doing the Drawing Out Process and healing all those inner triggers drawing them out, and you know clearing them, but then also discovered into three types of exPowers, what I call exPowers now if you haven't seen my previous episodes please do.


00:03:56.850 --> 00:04:03.600

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But there's exPowers being there's three types of inner you know triggers and blocks and wounds and parts of ice that.


00:04:04.020 --> 00:04:12.600

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Take on the get distorted by fear and pain and other kinds of traumas or chronic stressors in our lives, so that was my focus for a long time.


00:04:13.290 --> 00:04:20.550

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And I think I may have shared this story, by the way, in a previous episode, but basically what happened was that one of my own exPowers guided me to discover.


00:04:21.300 --> 00:04:33.690

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: The existence of eemPowers, so what was happening was these exPowers these inner struggles during the Drawing Out Process we're transforming into these wonderful beautiful beings that were just really parts of our power.


00:04:34.020 --> 00:04:43.980

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Well, this one exPower of mine was basically like you need to stop being so completely focused on inner struggles and it's the seeing us as somehow wounded meeting extra hours.


00:04:44.220 --> 00:04:51.120

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Seeing us to somehow like we're flawed or or week or any of that because you need to start seeing that we are parts of your power.


00:04:51.480 --> 00:05:02.490

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So it was that exPower inside of me that led me to discover the three types of empires, so that was back in like 2011 I think that I got that very clear message from her.


00:05:03.420 --> 00:05:15.630

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so I that's when I discovered the three types of emPowers, I used to call them something else, now I call them your inner Sovereign your inner Impresario and your inner Free-Spirit but back then, I called them like.


00:05:16.170 --> 00:05:24.240

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Your spiritual self and your practical self and your playful self I don't know I had it it's gone through different iterations over the years.


00:05:25.200 --> 00:05:35.430

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But the thing is, even though I discovered them, I really was not teaching about them, I wasn't talking about them, I wasn't even exploring them, it was sort of this kind of oh that's kind of an interesting thing oh that's cool.


00:05:36.000 --> 00:05:49.230

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Until 2015 I think at the end of 2015 or 2016 anyway, the point is I when I reached another period where I really hit a wall.


00:05:49.470 --> 00:05:55.560

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And I had been clearing and clearing and healing and you know, I was like like feeling so much better from doing all this healing.


00:05:56.250 --> 00:06:08.370

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But circumstances led me to realize that wait a minute I can't just like like that here, I was clearing and healing and all of that, but I still felt almost this kind of emptiness I felt this kind of like a lack of.


00:06:08.910 --> 00:06:17.580

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: sort of focus and purpose it wasn't like I felt lit up, I felt clear and I felt more at peace and I felt healthier and I felt less triggered and less reactive.


00:06:17.880 --> 00:06:26.340

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But I really was missing that sense of just a real feeling filled by something right so it's sort of like healed and cleared, but not refilled.


00:06:27.000 --> 00:06:35.100

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so there were a number of things that came together that guided me to realize that I needed to start really honoring my emPowers and listening to them.


00:06:35.400 --> 00:06:49.590

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: One of those things I don't know if I share this in a previous episode, but one of those things that happened was that my own husband who been watching me as I developed all this work and he loved it when I came up with the emPowers he's the one who said.


00:06:50.940 --> 00:07:00.690

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: He said that he had a dream that something like shook him and said, you have to get to talk about the emPowers.


00:07:01.530 --> 00:07:10.590

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And, and he woke up and then he told me about that the next morning and I literally was like oh that's that's interesting and just kind of didn't think about it.


00:07:11.160 --> 00:07:22.650

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And it wasn't until like a year later, that I finally because my own life was not going the way I wanted it to go that I finally was like Okay, you know, maybe I should actually like listen to these emPowers and when I finally did.


00:07:23.280 --> 00:07:30.480

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And my husband laughed he was like I think i've been telling you this, I had that dream remember it was like oh yeah that's right.


00:07:30.900 --> 00:07:42.240

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So i'm a little slow on the uptake sometimes and my husband, who would not call himself intuitive or like getting messages or anything clearly it was like something was trying to get the message to me through him.


00:07:43.170 --> 00:07:54.660

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Because I guess it was kind of hard to get the message straight to me because I really wasn't listening anyway, the point is I started honoring my emPowers and and I actually use them to a really amazing.


00:07:55.440 --> 00:08:01.950

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: result which is I helped they helped me to design my first online course I felt guided to create my first online course.


00:08:02.460 --> 00:08:07.830

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so they helped me do that and they helped me come up with different elements that I would not have come up with.


00:08:08.280 --> 00:08:16.680

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: On my own, and only then, and then I started to feel like so good, and so filled in a way that I hadn't felt before.


00:08:17.190 --> 00:08:22.080

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So that's when I really started listening to my emPowers as well as healing my ex powers.


00:08:22.290 --> 00:08:35.460

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And that's when I also started teaching people how to honor your emPowers not just heal those struggles and clear them out, but really bring forward those parts of you, whose job it is to empower you to live your Truth.


00:08:36.180 --> 00:08:47.970

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So I tell that story to show you the contrast between just healing your inner struggles and you know, like that that's fantastic but really it's also about bringing forward your powers.


00:08:48.300 --> 00:09:00.420

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: When we do the drawing up process the exPower is to transform into emPowers, on the one hand, just clearing the struggles, they transform back to your strengths, but there are a number of reasons.


00:09:01.260 --> 00:09:16.740

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Why it's really important, though, to to do the full process, if you will, meaning we get it, you know I talked about with the ChangeLight System is you heal those inner struggles you honor your inner strengths you honor them we focus them.


00:09:17.850 --> 00:09:27.210

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Excuse me, and then you, you know draw out your Guiding Star and and bring forward your Truth and the whole point is that your Truth is your treasure that's what we're after here.


00:09:27.750 --> 00:09:36.270

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: healing your inner struggles is only one part of that pathway and i've seen other modalities where it's they just focus on the healing the inner struggles.


00:09:36.570 --> 00:09:41.400

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But not the whole life, well then okay So what do you do with this power that you've that you've.


00:09:41.850 --> 00:09:54.810

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: unleashed that you've received that you fried that you brought to the surface and how do you bring forward more of your power to the surface so that's a very important part.


00:09:55.500 --> 00:10:02.430

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Of the process as much as the pain may have guided us to really start the process it's really all about taking it through.


00:10:02.700 --> 00:10:08.550

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: To healing your struggles honoring and bring for more your power so that, ultimately, you can fully live your Truth.


00:10:08.820 --> 00:10:21.390

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Because your Truth is the most at peace and most empowered you can feel your Truth is your knowing of who you are and who you're here to be so it's not enough just to be clear it's also important to really.


00:10:21.630 --> 00:10:38.550

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Be honoring that Truth in every way possible, so the point is that, when we heal those parts so, for example, if I take if I have an inner child in that I that is throwing a temper tantrum and it's screaming and crying and.


00:10:39.990 --> 00:10:42.420

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know it's it's you know it's having to be changed.


00:10:42.900 --> 00:10:53.280

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And I transform it I heal it with the Drawing Out Process and it transforms back into this lovely delightful sweet child, you know, and I hug the child and we have this wonderful embrace.


00:10:53.580 --> 00:11:02.040

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And there's this wonderful peace and clarity, like this amazing peace and clarity that comes from that and bliss to like it's so fun when.


00:11:02.310 --> 00:11:13.560

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I experienced or my clients, you know there's just this amazing bliss that comes from reintegrating week reconnecting with and healing and re integrating with that part of your every integrating it with you.


00:11:14.490 --> 00:11:21.480

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: it's an amazing feeling, but what can happen is so you feel you have these parts that ultimately kind of go Okay, they feel more at peace.


00:11:22.080 --> 00:11:35.670

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But they're lacking, they can sometimes end up lacking in focus and direction so it's all about helping them actually see where we going here that's, not to say that all parts of us have to be like on this mission with us.


00:11:36.150 --> 00:11:47.670

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But it's all about having them aligned with our higher purpose and mission and sometimes if we don't give them that that something to align to or with.


00:11:48.090 --> 00:11:53.160

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Then they might you know it's fine but we're not really using them to the best of their ability.


00:11:53.460 --> 00:12:01.650

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So that's one thing that can happen if all we do is just focus on healing our inner struggles, we feel better we feel more at peace we feel more clear.


00:12:01.890 --> 00:12:08.130

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But then we've got all this power and it's like okay So what are we doing with that power, what are we doing with that peace and that clarity.


00:12:08.460 --> 00:12:13.620

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And I often say that what happens is your Truth does come forward more clearly.


00:12:14.010 --> 00:12:23.700

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But it can come forward even more powerfully and faster when we actively tune into it and call upon it and talk to these parts.


00:12:23.970 --> 00:12:41.370

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Those emPowers whose job it is to empower us to live our Truth is helping a lot faster, and it was so much more joy and peace and clarity and wisdom that's what it's about so the whole point is when we only bring forward those.


00:12:42.480 --> 00:12:48.960

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: i'm sorry when we only heal the exPowers, without bringing forward our eemPowers as well.


00:12:49.560 --> 00:13:01.170

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Then we miss out on that additional support and that guidance and that wisdom that they have for us so sometimes what i'll do with a client, is that we do the Drawing Out Process.


00:13:01.620 --> 00:13:05.670

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And they've got this part that they've discovered and sometimes it actually part of the process.


00:13:06.180 --> 00:13:17.820

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: requires that I actually got you know align them with that Truth, but even then i'll often encourage the person i'll say this is a part of your power, this is a part of your wisdom.


00:13:18.300 --> 00:13:24.600

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And it knows your Truth and it's here to help to empower you to live your Truth so keep talking to it.


00:13:24.870 --> 00:13:34.350

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Keep receiving from it, keep learning from it, keep bringing it into your life use it as an advisor use it as a guide that kind of thing again.


00:13:34.710 --> 00:13:41.190

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: it's it's all about being in connection with ourselves, but also really maximizing that power we have inside.


00:13:41.490 --> 00:13:54.600

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: really like bringing it into actual reality in our lives, so that we can make an even bigger difference on a daily basis, because we're calling forward these wonderful powers within us so.


00:13:55.770 --> 00:14:06.750

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: The so that's I just want to point out that, that if we do the healing our inner struggles without honoring our powers we're missing out on a massive amount of love.


00:14:07.050 --> 00:14:20.430

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And peace and joy and presence and clarity and pleasure and wisdom and all kinds of yummy yummy stuff that so many of us wish that we had with us.


00:14:20.790 --> 00:14:27.210

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: The other thing that's so fun about really bringing forward your emPowers as well and i've talked about this before that we talked about the.


00:14:27.600 --> 00:14:35.430

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: that some of my clients will call it their inner team, you know their wisdom team or their their inner committee or they have different names for their emPowers.


00:14:35.820 --> 00:14:46.800

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But by by actually listening to them and inviting them to be a part of your life and inviting them to weigh in inviting them to.


00:14:47.670 --> 00:14:58.020

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: help you design like design, I might help me design my course help them to design your business help them to design your day like invite them to help you do these things.


00:14:58.380 --> 00:15:07.560

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Then you're going to find that you don't just feel more at peace because you've been healing the inner struggles, but you feel like filled and fulfilled.


00:15:08.010 --> 00:15:17.880

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And you feel the way, one of my clients put it was she said, and in fact she did this, where she actually hadn't been doing the clearing the inner struggles she hadn't been doing that drawing up process.


00:15:18.240 --> 00:15:39.180

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: All she did was do this this simple technique that I teach for honoring your emPowers and it was, and she said, I feel much so much more whole and I feel so much more fulfilled from the inside, so much so that I don't need other people's approval that I feel like I am enough, as I am.


00:15:40.380 --> 00:15:50.370

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: that's big that's big stuff that's a great example of how it can be powerful just to really pay attention to your emPowers.


00:15:50.610 --> 00:16:00.840

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And honor them and bring them forward and I teach this in the ChangeLight System course, which is, in my Community where you can do this work in a safe and supportive space and learn all these techniques.


00:16:01.260 --> 00:16:08.700

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But just the point is that she hadn't even done the drawing out or clearing the stuff she just did this one technique for bringing forward her emPowers.


00:16:09.120 --> 00:16:16.710

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And she felt so much more whole and I might have actually shared this before she went from feeling completely burned out in her business and having to let go of clients.


00:16:17.160 --> 00:16:30.750

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: To being on fire to doing so well and really being able to stick with her commitments, but also to redesign her days, so that they were more filling and fulfilling and pleasure felt for her.


00:16:31.290 --> 00:16:39.120

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So that just is a really great example of the power of just doing that one thing alone and how that can be enough.


00:16:39.840 --> 00:16:49.320

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: To really bring in more of that presence, that is, you more of your Truth more of that wisdom and that clarity and that beauty, that is already there within you.


00:16:49.620 --> 00:16:58.590

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That may be obscured by some exPowers, but is also there for you to tap into without really necessarily having to go through years and years of clearing out.


00:16:58.980 --> 00:17:07.140

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: The inner struggles, so the point is that your your powers are there and that that we shouldn't.


00:17:08.130 --> 00:17:16.110

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Just because we heal our inner struggles, we shouldn't just take for granted that therefore, our power is just going to come bursting out, I mean it does and a lot of ways.


00:17:16.650 --> 00:17:31.560

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But as I said, you can accelerate that process and enhance it and magnify and expanded even more within you so that you can accelerate your ability to use that power for good.


00:17:31.860 --> 00:17:43.110

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: use that power to make a bigger difference in the world and receive that wisdom and guidance, that is already within you that is waiting for you to really listen to it and to honor it.


00:17:43.980 --> 00:17:56.010

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Another thing, though that's really, really important that has to do with that whole ChangeLight Systems i've talked about in previous episodes again if you haven't seen my previous episodes get on girl, because there are a lot of stuff a lot.


00:17:56.910 --> 00:18:04.290

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: back there that I share with you, but as I said, it's all about healing inner struggles revealing your inner strength.


00:18:04.740 --> 00:18:14.040

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And then bringing forward your Guiding Star, which is that vision that you carry of who you are here to be live, you know your optimal self living your Truth.


00:18:14.400 --> 00:18:23.490

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: that's your inner Guiding Star and then there's your Truth, which is that inner knowing of who you are and who you're here to be that powerful inner compass.


00:18:23.850 --> 00:18:39.240

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That sense of mission and purpose and being and presence and really it's it's the presence you're here to be so it's just a process of clearing out all the struggles and bringing forward those strengths, but my point is.


00:18:39.690 --> 00:18:51.570

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That even then, if you look at it, as well i'm clearing all these you know in our struggles and doing the drawing out and stuff and then well i'm also drawing on my emPowers i'm listening to my emPowers very, very, very important.


00:18:51.990 --> 00:18:56.490

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That, as I often talk about even with those emPowers you know you've got the three you've got Sovereign.


00:18:57.180 --> 00:19:07.380

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: The Impresario and the Free-Spirit, so this the impersonal start with a sort of bottom to the ones below so you've got the Impresario which is really that part of you that's very practical.


00:19:07.710 --> 00:19:21.420

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And you know likes to figure things out likes to fix things and think things through, and also wants to you to survive it's very focused on your instrumental needs and your instrumental care is some would say, like in therapy circles instrumental care.


00:19:22.860 --> 00:19:34.590

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But then, and then there's the Free-Spirit which is the part that's like your inner child that just free and joyful and doesn't care about responsibilities and doesn't care about getting things done and doesn't care about schedules It just wants to be free and have fun.


00:19:35.070 --> 00:19:39.480

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and be creative and come up with fun ideas and activities to do.


00:19:40.560 --> 00:19:45.390

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And oftentimes it's the artistic part of us so you've got these two parts.


00:19:46.170 --> 00:19:56.610

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And oftentimes they can kind of be at odds with each other, not at odds like they're antagonistic but they just have different perspectives, or they might have different approaches to the same.


00:19:57.000 --> 00:19:59.040

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know, maybe you're faced with a dilemma.


00:19:59.310 --> 00:20:09.750

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: or trying to make a decision, or even in a moment, where you're like what should I do with myself right in this moment what would serve the highest and your Free-Spirit might your Impresario might be like well, you need to do make that phone call.


00:20:10.050 --> 00:20:15.840

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And you're Free-Spirit, bit by be like yeah but you know let's go for a walk that would be really fun and get some sunshine.


00:20:16.350 --> 00:20:21.330

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And there's that little I don't know which one, but the point is that Sovereign is that part.


00:20:22.170 --> 00:20:33.300

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That is kind of a above it all, if you will it's the one that knows your Truth, it is basically your intuition and so while you're Impresario is a part of you that let's say.


00:20:33.690 --> 00:20:43.530

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: For simplicity sake thinks and then you're Free-Spirit is the part of you that feels again we have you know different versions of that.


00:20:44.280 --> 00:20:52.770

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Your Sovereign is a part of you that knows that knows what is right and wrong for you, independently of how you think or how you feel.


00:20:53.100 --> 00:21:00.900

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so, in some ways that Sovereign is like the tiebreaker, if you will, but what it's also being is the voice for your Truth.


00:21:01.470 --> 00:21:11.790

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: For that inner knowing of who you are who you're here to be what serves your highest good and so that's why your Sovereign is a rather it's.


00:21:12.180 --> 00:21:29.220

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Your Sovereign is is absolutely vital part of you, because it gives focus and direction or your Truth really does, but your Sovereigns like almost at the mouthpiece for your Truth, sometimes is that it gives it gives the all these powers within you focus and direction.


00:21:30.390 --> 00:21:37.200

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And the reason why that's important is because you know sure we can go through our lives and just be sort of.


00:21:37.530 --> 00:21:44.160

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: enjoying ourselves and surviving and that's fine that's totally fine I don't I don't necessarily believe that everybody has to have some like.


00:21:44.520 --> 00:22:05.400

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: overarching mission, or like huge sense of purpose, but at least have some sense of their your values some kind of guiding principles some sort of sense of focus and purpose and mission and again it doesn't have to be well i'm here to you know, create a spaceship that flies us to Saturn.


00:22:06.840 --> 00:22:15.300

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Okay, good luck landing on Saturday, but the point is that it's it's simply about giving focus and purpose.


00:22:15.660 --> 00:22:24.060

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: To these powers within you to these parts of you, because the reality is we do have difficult situations in life.


00:22:24.360 --> 00:22:33.420

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Where we are forced to decide, do I go this way do I go that way, or what are My guiding principles, what are my ethical standards.


00:22:33.960 --> 00:22:44.730

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: What is right or wrong for me, independently of anyone else so life will will present us with the scenarios with these dilemmas with these decisions.


00:22:45.120 --> 00:22:56.430

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so it's really important to have a sense of purpose and focus and so that is why the Sovereign is so incredibly important, and that is why it is so incredibly important that when we're when we're talking.


00:22:57.000 --> 00:23:01.680

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: about this idea of why it's not enough just to heal your inner struggles.


00:23:02.250 --> 00:23:10.620

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: it's like the inner struggles, the whole point my opinion of healing those inner struggles until you feel better and also so that you're more in tune with your Truth.


00:23:11.040 --> 00:23:22.680

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Because your Truth is the thing that's going to give you that clarity that purpose that direction that guidance that focus, so that when you're faced with these situations in life.


00:23:23.040 --> 00:23:33.570

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: there's so much easier to navigate so much easier to navigate when you're already tuned in to your own inner compass.


00:23:33.960 --> 00:23:39.510

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So in that way that's why it's not enough to just i'm just going to heal my struggles and feel better.


00:23:39.720 --> 00:23:51.630

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: or i'm just going to bring forward my powers or i'm going to heal my trials and bring forward my powers it's also about giving your powers as I talked about earlier sense of purpose and focus and mission and direction.


00:23:51.990 --> 00:23:56.220

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And that that is an incredibly that, let me put it this way, if if if.


00:23:56.730 --> 00:24:06.780

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You wouldn't have if you didn't need a Truth you wouldn't have a Truth, if you didn't need a sense of focus and purpose and direction you wouldn't have one if you didn't need.


00:24:07.620 --> 00:24:16.890

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know, ethics or values or you know boundaries you wouldn't have them, and so the point is, we do we have these built in.


00:24:17.280 --> 00:24:23.490

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: values and boundaries, and I think sometimes of course they're impacted by our environment, you know certain things that can happen.


00:24:23.790 --> 00:24:29.340

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: situations in our lives can actually cause us to recognize even more clearly like what our values are.


00:24:29.580 --> 00:24:38.400

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Or what our purposes or what our mission is or what we what changes, we want to affect in the world, of course, our lives also guide us towards.


00:24:38.760 --> 00:24:48.060

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Those things, but my point is that your Truth and that that Sovereign out of all three of the emPowers is the one.


00:24:48.900 --> 00:25:02.490

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: The Truth is really what it's all about here, and the reason why we're healing these inner struggles and bringing forward your powers, if anything, your Truth is ultimately your why.


00:25:03.180 --> 00:25:11.100

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And usually one of the big reasons why we often are wanting Taylor inner struggles is because we know that's not our optimal state.


00:25:11.400 --> 00:25:19.140

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And we know that's not how we're here to feel we're not here to suffer I don't believe that we're not here to suffer and struggle.


00:25:19.410 --> 00:25:31.350

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Or that if we end that when we do suffer and struggle there's wisdom to be gained there's growth to be gained from that, but ultimately why, why are we doing this and everyone has a different way.


00:25:31.860 --> 00:25:46.650

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And everyone has a different Truth that's guiding them, I mean your Y or your Truth could simply be I am here to be a shining beacon of light on the planet, you know or I am here to help connect people.


00:25:47.970 --> 00:26:00.360

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: to one another, or be in connection with other people, I mean it can be something so very like non specific and yet still so extremely powerful that can manifest itself in so many different ways.


00:26:00.720 --> 00:26:12.660

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But ultimately it's like okay here's a great metaphor it's like if you go well, so i've got this team of inner powers right we've got our empower team or inner wisdom team.


00:26:13.290 --> 00:26:16.800

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: or you've got a team within a company okay so.


00:26:17.280 --> 00:26:28.920

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So does it make sense if you've got a company with a team of people and all they're doing is just sort of sitting around and chatting and going Oh, we feel so powerful we feel so great and are we happy and isn't this just great.


00:26:29.250 --> 00:26:35.160

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I mean yeah that's fine obviously you know presence, and that is valuable enough in and of itself.


00:26:35.580 --> 00:26:43.140

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But my guess is if you're thinking about yourself, and you know you like having these this team inside of you that you're really that.


00:26:43.530 --> 00:26:52.530

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: it's like they probably want a job they want something to do and that really we can maximize their gifts and their skills, when we give them something to do.


00:26:53.010 --> 00:27:08.610

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Or you know when they are set on a purpose and mission of path your emPowers tend to know what that is, they are designed to support you in living your Truth to empower you to live your Truth, but the point is that.


00:27:09.690 --> 00:27:20.790

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: it's also it's, the key is also that we also have to be in tuning into what that Truth is and making sure that those parts of us are aligned with that Truth.


00:27:21.090 --> 00:27:25.680

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so it's not as though you have these other parts doing other things, but we're all in alignment.


00:27:26.130 --> 00:27:32.460

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: In flowing in the same direction, and when we flow in the same direction it's so much more so much easier isn't it.


00:27:32.790 --> 00:27:42.930

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And you feel so much more powerful I mean think about like a river if you've got water kind of going like this well it's not very focused or directed, is it it's kind of chaotic, as opposed to.


00:27:45.000 --> 00:27:54.270

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And everything's flowing and it's flowing easily down river without any encumbrances or or you know obstacles or anything like that so that's.


00:27:54.780 --> 00:28:05.370

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Ultimately, what the Truth can help us do is provide that compass provide that sense of clarity and mission and purpose and direction and focus.


00:28:05.760 --> 00:28:13.050

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: For our emPowers and also can be the very thing that gives us the courage.


00:28:13.440 --> 00:28:24.510

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: To really overcome our inner struggles or overcome those fears to achieve certain things were to be a certain presence in the world, or to have a certain impact, you see.


00:28:24.870 --> 00:28:32.160

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So that's why, when I talk about the ChangeLight System, and I share all aspects of it, I really want you to hear.


00:28:32.550 --> 00:28:45.270

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: How holistic, this is and how all parts of it are so equally important is that we need our emPowers to empower us to live our Truth we need our Truth to give guidance to our emPowers.


00:28:45.540 --> 00:28:51.090

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and also to guide us to overcome our exPowers or healer exPowers, we have our exPowers that can help us.


00:28:51.360 --> 00:28:57.510

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know by by working through them and overcoming them, we can actually grow stronger because of our inner struggles, I mean there's.


00:28:57.840 --> 00:29:09.000

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: it's all of it all works together Okay, so I just want you to think about that because, again, a lot of times we tend to focus on, I just want to heal my struggles, because we want to get rid of the pain.


00:29:09.690 --> 00:29:17.910

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But also remember, there are so many other tools here and so much of so many so much other wisdom and guidance and love.


00:29:18.390 --> 00:29:30.120

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And and joy and peace and pleasure and all kinds of other aspects of you to call upon as you're on your journey of really living your Truth and making the biggest difference that you could possibly make.
