Power Quotes From The ShowEmotions are energy in motion. They're meant to be fluid so that when we embrace and feel them, they move through us. They don't get stuck unless we don't allow ourselves to feel them. - Dr. Brenda Walding of @NativePath1Click To Tweet
“A lot of my healing process focused on embracing the feminine energy by dropping into my heart and feeling my feelings. Instead of being this charging athlete, I turned towards learning how to flow and dance with music. That started to wake up this creative, feminine energy within me that I had not known before. It felt so good to begin to be aware of my feminine power. There is power in this feminine way of being and it's not a weakness; it's just a different way for women to express themselves. As women, we're not meant to express ourselves and be powerful in a masculine way; we can be powerful in a feminine way.” – Dr. Brenda Walding
“I had this sense that I was ill because there was something wrong with me or I wasn't worthy of God's love but the more I read and did the inner work, I realized something. The God that is love does not punish or create disease and that fundamental belief that somehow I deserve to be punished was blocking my healing. So, switching to thinking about how this power that created me, the cosmos, these beautiful sunsets, and this extraordinary world is also within me helped me to become more open to experiencing and receiving this healing.” – Dr. Brenda Walding
“If we can begin to open or shift our perception that disease is potentially this divine opportunity and this catalyst for radical growth and transformation, we can really go in and remove all that isn't us and awaken to the truth of who we really are.” – Dr. Brenda Walding
“We all have this deep desire to live our best life and feel peace, happiness, purpose, passion, and connection but the only way to experience our optimal life is to feel. Part of the human experience is this symphony of emotions from happiness and joy to sadness and anger. Embracing all of these contrasting emotions is what it means to be human. So, give yourself permission to feel those feelings. Feel each feeling and love what you feel. No matter what it is, love that feeling.” – Dr. Brenda Walding
