Wellness + Wisdom | Episode 630

How can you heal codependency and create liberated love?

Mark Groves + Kylie McBeath | Liberated Love: Release Codependent Patterns + Create The Love You DesireMark Groves and Kylie McBeath join Josh Trent on the Wellness + Wisdom Podcast, episode 630, to explore where the root of codependency comes from, how you can create a liberated relationship with your partner, and why it's important to learn to be okay on your own before you get into a relationship.

“Until we make the pattern and the unconscious way of being in relating conscious, we'll seek to get the things we never got from our mother. Till we do that, we seek it in our partner when we're really seeking it in ourselves.”Mark Groves

Power Quotes From The Show

Codependency: Outsourcing Safety

“We source safety outside of ourselves from someone or something at the expense of our wholeness, our sense of self, and our core needs. We're playing out our survival strategies in self-protection mode, doing what we learned how to do in order to survive our earlier family system dynamics, and we're just repeating that in our adult dynamics now.”Kylie McBeath

Coming to Truth

“There is no coming to change without coming to truth. You can't change if you don't acknowledge your circumstances and your way of being because you can't change something you don't accept as true.”Mark Groves

Liberation Through Limitation

“The majority of us don't know what it feels like to be in our center, don't know what it feels like to have inner authority, don't know what it feels like to be really solid in our foundation. Liberation through limitation allows us to see the blind spots; where we're still trying to source validation, where we're still trying to source security or safety from someone at the expense of our wholeness.”Kylie McBeath
