Each and every one of us enters this world as a beautiful beacon of light radiating Love. Those around us can’t help but express their feelings of joy, peace and fascination as they bask in the calm and nostalgia that an innocent child brings to their lives. Free of the burden of responsibilities, expectations and the trappings of personality, the baby brings Love to so many by simply being as they are.
As we learn and grow, we begin to understand what it means to be part of a ‘tribe’ by trial and error in our actions and behaviours. We begin to understand our role within the tribal unit, and we make adjustments to our self-expression informed by the guidance of our caregivers.
These concessions often come at the expense of our ability to see ourselves as inherently good – rather, we see our caregivers as omnipotent as we contort ourselves to win their favour. In many cases, these changes also serve to protect us from potential rejection, and allows us to operate within frameworks of boundaries, limitations, dogma and taboos.
The criticism and disapproval that directs our way of being as we grow is echoed in our own inner narrative and remains long after our guardians and other influences remain to enforce them. Even in the absence of our critics, we seek validation from those outside of us. Our shame and unworthiness then becomes the subconscious driving force behind our intentions, actions and behaviours as we slip further into the denial of our true nature and inherent worth. Even our goals are informed by failures and false belief systems that previously allowed us to function within the environment of our upbringing despite the fact that the beliefs are no longer needed and no longer serving our betterment.
Who could you be if you could express yourself freely and live a life free of lack, limitation and languish?
Imagine yourself as a beautiful, glowing light set within a gift box (your physical body). Each time we compromise ourselves in service of what or how we think we should be, we wrap our box in another layer of gift wrap. We wrap ourselves in beautiful paper, layer upon layer dimming our light as we seek to impress and gain the approval of others. To us, perhaps neither the colour of the paper nor the patterning is representative of what we are, but with enough time we learn to adapt to the taste of others as we hide the light that is inside of us and begging to be seen.
Eventually, the effects of self-denial enter our lives as blocks in our progress, maladaptive behaviours in our interpersonal relationships and often despair in the form of anxiety, depression or hopelessness. We try in vain to live well and make decisions that support our betterment, but despite our efforts we are always left with a sense that something just isn’t working.
What if the pain was just Love calling you back to yourself?
Unwrapping the Gift of You
Making Love Loud is an opportunity for each of us to go within and redesign our experience
without the continuous and stifling judgment of the inner critic that has been running the show
for so long. As we reclaim our light, we begin to understand that not only is our light not meant
to be hidden – but it is there to illuminate our unique path. When we discover the power of true
acceptance and Love of the Self, we begin to align with our inner nature and step from fear into
possibility and limitlessness.
Making Love Loud is changing lives and building momentum in the men and women who are
ready to do the real work of peeling back the limiting layers that shackle them and delivering
them back to Love. Like so many of us, Amy discovered her own inner light without the
guidance and wisdom of a trusted ally to offer support and discernment on her path through
transformation. Now, her life’s mission is to support others in breaking out of their box and
discovering their incredible ability to heal through acknowledgment of their uncompromised essence. Amy sees the Love inside of you, and she wants to hold the mirror for you to see it too. But a mirror is only a mirror if you open your eyes…
If you are ready to show up for yourself 111%, if you can commit to approaching yourself with a sense of curiosity and non-judgment, if your light is ready to be seen – you are ready to Make Love Loud.
Your comfort is keeping you contained – the Gift is You.
Inner Work for Men
Many men are unaware of the crippling weight of shame that they carry. At a time
when societal criticism of the masculine runs freely in mainstream media and private gatherings,
men often receive unsolicited guidance on how not to be – but are left to identify how to be on
their own. Role confusion is a prominent theme in modern times, with external criticism and
inconsistent expectations leaving them feeling, on an energetic level, that being a man is fraught
with unobtainable standards. This inevitably leads to a spiral of unworthiness and resentment.
Brené Brown brilliantly depicts men’s shame of not being enough when she characterizes their
response to shame-inducing events as ‘pissed off, or shut down’ – and who could blame them?
Through her own experiences with men, Amy has been blessed with a developed
understanding of the need for men to shut off the atmospheric ‘noise’ and go within to
overcome chronic feelings of guilt, shame, and of generally not being ‘enough’. She is often
heard saying that in her calling to ‘Make Love Loud’, healing the masculine has a special place
in her heart.
For men, Making Love Loud is about respect for both the masculine and feminine energies
within all of us, and the need to understand the inherent value of each. Deeply held emotions
which have been repressed find their way into consciousness where they can be released with
grace and replaced by a new respect for, and awareness of the Self - free from the heavy
vibrational energies of grief, shame and guilt.
Our work together doesn’t require you to ‘be’ anything – rather, through our work we uncover the light of who you really are, as we peel back the layers and Make Your Love Loud -Amy
