I wholeheartedly welcome you to Journey into the Soul. My name is Khadíjih Mitchell-Polka (Kah-Dee-Jay),
I'm a Meditation Teacher, Intuitive, and the Founder of Journey into the Soul LLC. My ambition, intention, and dedication are to help individuals find harmony & balance through cosmic guidance, meditation, and heart-centered living.
I believe there are no accidents and that you have been guided here to my site for a reason. That reason may currently be unknown to you, but if you are willing to trust the process of life and sit with the wisdom of your heart, the reason for your being here will become more clear.
For some time, I have been looking out into the world and have seen the disruption, chaos, pain, and separation occurring in the hearts of people all over.
And from what I have seen, I believe that the core reason for the collective mass suffering comes from our individual separation from ourselves, our hearts, and thus the world & universe around us.
This separation often stems from growing up in a world that told us that we had to look, act, and behave a certain way in order to be accepted. It comes from years of being conditioned with certain beliefs and worldviews that cause us to become convinced by others about how we are to live our lives and who we are to be.
From early childhood, we learn to judge and undervalue ourselves (and others) and are pulled apart from our ability to follow our intuition, trust our decisions, and ultimately deeply and profoundly connect with who we really are.
This lack of connection causes us to look outside of ourselves for the love we are seeking only to continuously return to feelings of being let down, of disconnection, of something missing,
And even though we desire to experience fulfillment, love, harmony & peace
Our traumas, fears, and past pains cause us to build barriers against love and turn our backs on the version of ourselves we truly want to be.
Does any of this sound familiar?
I'm sure some of it must, just as it does for me.
For a long time, I was battling the desire to be fully authentic & fully free in a world where in the eyes of others, I never felt I could quite meet the mark or live up to their expectations.
I received messages from the world that told me I was "too much" OR "not enough".
And after years of running from my childhood traumas, past, and ultimately from myself, I completely lost my voice. Becoming miserable, bitter, and angry at the world for not seeing me, not hearing me, not accepting me.
Then when I couldn't take my suffering anymore, I was gifted with a deep dark night of the soul.
And after trudging through the darkness of my own trauma and sitting in the stillness, I found myself for the first time, truly trusting what my heart and the inner guide had been trying to tell me all along.
That the most important opinion is the one I have of myself, And I've always been enough.
Just as each and every person in this world is!
From my own journey, I have come to recognize that healing is a non-linear journey and for me has required dedication, perseverance, and allowing my friends to walk with me along the path.
Do You Hear the Call?
The nuances that come together to form our concepts of life, ourselves, and others are intricate, delicate, and dependent on our own life experiences.
As we grow up, seemingly harmless comments from family, friends, educators, employers, etc., and traumatic life events become stored in our bodies and replayed on a loop in our thoughts, negatively impacting our self-perception, and becoming triggered at any moment.
The media also plays a role in our ability to love ourselves; with the glorification of certain bodies, minds, social status, etc., we come to hold certain expectations and beliefs about ourselves and others. Many of us, become overly critical of our decisions, habits, perceived abilities, body shape, size, etc.
All the messages we get from our internal and external environments greatly influence the thoughts we think and how we treat our bodies and minds, and the bodies and minds of others.
For many, the path toward healing and liberation, if taken at all, is often found when we are much older; the traumas have been buried, and the damage done.
It comes after years of suffering and coping with painful memories, fear-based patterns, and desperately trying to find the love we always desired in other things such as food, sex, drugs, alcohol, etc.
However, when we begin to embrace the quiet of our hearts and the quiet space in our minds, we allow healing to occur.
Going on this journey requires courage, dedication, and a willingness to look deep within to uncover what it is that is truly holding us back from loving ourselves and living a life where we are truly happy, truly fulfilled, fully authentic, and ultimately following the path of our Soul.
So, if you are ready to accept the call from the Universe that brought you here, I invite you to have a look at my offerings and take advantage of one of the many ways in which I am here to serve you, and of course, feel free to reach out should you have any questions.
I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
