3 Thoughts from Linda J. Wolff [ Cultivating Calm Within ]


Abandonment wound feels imminent danger or a spontaneous burst of joy. How to heal it and reboot the brain and find inner peace. Healing abandonment wound means you will create a space within for new responses, that will in time offer new results. 

You will practice cultivating calm within by learning self-soothing through exercise, walks in nature and listening to the peaceful sounds of birds, the wind, the ocean. Sit on a park bench and breathe in the scents of nature. Allow it to saturate within you to create an emotional safety space. Rethink: I am safe!


“If you want inner peace then you must practice kindness.

It’s hard to create peace unless you put the work into it with yourself and others, and it’s hard with others if you are not kind to yourself.


A phrase I think of often and is quite useful for me: I will always deliver kindness and love in every word I utter from my mouth.

Many words are wasted, and the energy used to speak them don’t have undertones of love or kindness.

Subscribe, p.s. there’s always warmth inside this room.
