Today, I want to dive into the incredible power of human connection to bring about healing, transform mental and emotional health, expand our thinking, and break down those tough emotional walls.
Coming off our recent Visioneering retreat, I've been reflecting a ton on the incredible experience we had. Going through pictures, reminiscing about the deep conversations, it's just mind-blowing how much healing unfolded over that weekend.
If you're feeling armored up, you know you have emotional barriers, are struggling with connection, or just sensing a need for healing, this episode is for you!
I'm a firm believer that when two or more gather, there's a supernatural power of healing. Today we are talking about neuroscience, mental health, and emotional health, but I also want to touch on the spiritual aspect of why gathering together is so essential!
Matthew 18:20 says, "For where two or more gather in my name, I am there with you."
Gathering, sharing, being open and vulnerable creates an undeniable atmosphere of healing. Virtual connections are great, but there's something truly transformative about bringing people together IN person, hugging, sharing stories, and engaging in wisdom circles. The energy and connections that happen in those moments are absolutely priceless!
If I am honest, I had a lot of resistance for many years around sharing my authentic self with others. There were just too many wounds and too much evidence that people could not be trusted. Until… I decided to GET OVER that OLD story and create a new one.
I was done operating as a LONE WOLF. Feeling isolated and alone. This continues to be my work to this day and it’s why I speak about relationships so often. God used what was my greatest source of pain and turned it into a GIFT I now get to share with others.
The incredible power of connection, support, and empathy has been rocket fuel in my life. In group settings, we find strength, normalization of experiences, and a shared journey toward healing. As we open up, share our stories, and connect on a heart-to-heart level, we create a powerful space for compassion and mobilization.
In today’s episode we're unpacking:
The Power of Human Connection: We're delving into the profound impact that human connection has on healing, mental and emotional well-being, and personal transformation.
Breaking Down Emotional Walls: The importance of connection in breaking down tough emotional walls and fostering vulnerability.
The Neuroscience Behind Connection: We examine the role of mirror neurons, empathy, oxytocin (the LOVE hormone!), and neuroplasticity - the brain's ability to reorganize information -in the dynamics of human connection and how it positively affects our mindset and well-being.
Plus! The Supernatural Power of Gathering: Beyond the scientific perspective, we touch on the spiritual aspect, discussing how gathering in the name of connection can bring about a supernatural power of healing.
The collective power of shared wisdom, vulnerability, and genuine connection has the potential to transform lives. So, if you've been feeling the weight of isolation or struggling to break down emotional walls, consider the power that unfolds when humans connect, support, and uplift each other!
