In this lesson, we explore the anatomy of conflict from the third layer (-2) - our childhood historical pain. Often in our conflicts, we regress into younger versions of ourselves - throwing tantrums, feeling small, acting from places that don't look or sound like the full adult version of us. In this lesson, we'll look at where behaviors like this come from - looking back at our early childhood in our first 7 years. when we begin to question whether we are loved or lovable.
We begin to experience disapproval and punishment. In this lesson we'll look at the decisions we make about ourselves, the world, and the people around us that lead to conflict later.
