Have you ever considered what the word SAFE means to you? Or how it vibrates in your body? Does it feel good or not so good? In this audio blog I explore how the word safe could carry a very different meaning.
As you listen, consider, what does it mean to be safe, whole, or grounded for you? Each word will carry a specific vibration, a feeling or sensation, in each of us. Just because we use a word does not mean others are interpreting it the same.
Imagine how different it would be if you engaged your curiosity around how you react to the words others use, and how others react to your words. It’s not so much about changing the words as much as getting curious about how they feel for yourself and others.

From listening to your excellent audio blog I understood that we all use everyday words that hold different meaning and therefore different context for each of us. What I also heard was that when we use the word SAFE in terms of protection or locking something away to keep it from harm, that perhaps we are not allowing ourselves to be totally vulnerable and open to experiencing life to its fullest.
The WEL-System process includes learning that you are safe in your body and with its sensations, and yet if some people are using the idea of being SAFE as protected, sheltered or guarded then surely this will limit their ability to be vulnerable and open, as the purpose of the process is to produce the exact opposite effect, that is to be open to your body and it’s sensations, learning to trust that it’s all just information being processed.
Again, thank you for this blog and I know that is there is something important here for me that requires further discovery.
Yes to all you have stated and that is why it’s so important for us to pay attention and get curious as to what word holds a different resonance/vibration. A willingness to stay in the conversation and with what moves is key. And it’s never time before it’s time. In my own experience, it was not until a recent conversation with a friend, that I discovered ‘safe’ did have another meaning and resonance, that had been hidden until this moment.
