Finding Grace Through Death and Rebirth with Hannah Wallace
On this week's episode of the Choosing Change podcast, Hannah Wallace joins me to share insights from her own deeply personal healing journey. Hannah describes how at a young age, she faced major life changes that plunged her into darkness. But through perseverance and support, she emerged stronger by learning to accept where she was at.
Hannah helps us understand that as humans, we all experience natural cycles of "death and rebirth" throughout our lives. Major transitions involve metaphorical deaths of old selves that must be grieved. During these times, feeling safe and releasing resistance is key. Rebirth then allows questioning of beliefs and choosing what truly nourishes our well-being.
Both Hannah and I have navigated challenging periods involving illness, disability, trauma and more. By openly discussing our experiences, we hope others feel less alone. A takeaway is that each person's process is unique - experimenting mindfully aids wellness. Hannah emphasizes embracing all aspects of self, including quirks, with compassion.
Finding grace, joy, fun and softening rigid patterns also support healing. I'm grateful Hannah joined me to provide profound insights for all undergoing life's changes. Her wisdom reminds us that with perseverance and community, light emerges even from our darkest of days.
I can’t wait for you to listen to this conversation.
