Are you Living the Truth? It turns out this question may be a lot more complicated than it appears. Our body and minds have very sophisticated mechanisms to protect us from pain, both physical and emotional. As a result, we may not be conscious of the reasons we do the things we do, the relationship partners we choose, or the shields we use to continue to protect ourselves.
Living the Truth takes the listener through the process of determining childhood pain the mind may be shielding you from and what impact these shields are having on your life. Also included on one of the CDs is a Living the Truth personal workbook which walks you through the steps of self-discovery, starting with identifying your self-defeating behaviors, followed by exploratory questions regarding childhood experiences, and an examination of the feelings associated with these experiences. By facing the pain experienced in childhood and understanding the resulting behaviors, you will free yourself from the shields and recreate a new and more effective reality.
Keith Ablow is a published psychiatrist, contributing to the New York Times, the Washington Post, USA Today, and Cosmopolitan. He also has a long list of guest appearances on the Today show, Larry King Live, Good Morning America, Oprah, and many other programs. Using examples from his practice, he guides the listener through the process of discovery and connection to childhood pain.
Living the Truth is a valuable resource of self-discovery and renewal. The workbook provides a framework for working from current self-defeating behaviors (shields) to identifying the root experience and turning the pain into power.
