Why Joy and Play are Hard to Access (and What To Do About It)

Feb 12, 2020Depression, Unconscious Contracts

Joy and the PLAY circuit are the most vulnerable emotional circuitry we have as humans. Our capacity to experience joy is especially vulnerable to the ways in which we have experienced feeling unsafe, unaccompanied, or not having a sense of mattering to those around us.

Have you ever wondered why, despite having parents who loved you and expressed exuberant joy sometimes, it might be hard for you to access that kind of happiness in your body?

Would you like to be connected to a deep knowing that, no matter our childhood experiences, genetic predisposition, or age, have access to all that we need for happiness? (Hint: WE DO! We all have access to this capacity!)

Are you curious about why some experiences can cause us to mute our joy, and what happens in our nervous systems when we suppress our capacity for this emotion?

And would you like to know how to work with the unconscious contracts that prevent us from accessing aliveness and delight in our bodies?
