Over the years as a psychologist, I’ve realized that it’s not unusual to find a trend or theme that seems to emerge across client concerns. I have no idea why this occurs, but in talking to colleagues, they notice it as well. All I know is that most people feel like evolution is a difficult process.
Because of the particular kind of work I do, based strongly on conscious evolution and also soul development, sometimes the themes that emerge in my office have a bit of a different slant. The latest theme that has appeared over the last several months is the sheer exhaustion that folks are feeling in their current process of growth. Hard work is being done– and I mean HARD WORK– as my clients evolve beyond old thoughts, emotions, perceptions, behaviors, patterns, and so on. In my work, I emphasize that it is not only the human condition we are healing, it is also the soul. This requires a greatly heightened sense of awareness, one that becomes both a blessing and a seeming curse.
The world is changing, and this is causing us to evolve on a global level. People are being existentially challenged to consciously or unconsciously adapt to new beliefs and values, and as we simultaneously work through our personal issues, the energetic impact of the global changes can drain us even more. So, regardless of the level of individual work you are engaging in, we are all under the stress of a changing world as well.
It is no doubt that evolution is difficult, so much so that the word should be synonymous with the words “worn out”, “spent”, “exhausted”, “tired”, and even “fed up”. So, the words that I hear myself saying as clients lament their challenges through their growth are “Evolution Sucks”. Some clients laugh, some simply nod, and others launch into a verbal resonance with the statement.
Although our growth is the most beautiful and natural thing we experience, it is also the most difficult and challenging. The following video explains more, and discusses the first “Hazards of Therapy or Conscious Evolution” that I’ve come up with over my 26+ years of working in the world of holistic psychotherapy.
