“If you bring forth what is within you,
What you bring forth will save you.
If you do not bring forth what is within you,
What you do not bring forth will destroy you.”
~ The Gospel of Thomas

  • Learning to love is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do

    After more than 30 years of life together—I am learning to love my husband.
    I want to learn to love in such a way that the evolution in the structure of our relationship or any changes that each of us may still undergo will not kill the love.
    Committed to filling my own needs, I no longer look for relationships to complete me.
    I am learning to love people beyond what I can get from them, beyond my needs for safety, stability, or fear of the unknown.

  • Returning to wholeness in order to form healthy relationships

    Coming from co-dependence we look to be completed in our relationships. I observe a lot of our pain and suffering comes from that sense of entitlement and expectation we have that people have to be or behave a certain way for us to feel good. The fact is – no one can complete us. It is our journey – to return to wholeness, which is our birthright.

  • Our feelings, reactions and triggers speak of our relationship with ourselves.

    I used to think that my readiness to be generous and kind had to do with the other people: some people are just easier to love. But now I understand that my kindness and generosity have to do with the state of my own nervous system and my overall psycho-emotional state. An irritating phrase or behavior can cause only a slight reaction, even amusement when I am happy and at peace. Whereas the same gesture may cause me to blow up when I’m tired, overextended, or unwell.

  • Happiness is an inner state of being and is fully in our control

    Happiness is our birthright. It is always available to us. We have a tendency to think of happiness, joy, fulfillment – as something that we can get to at some point in the future: when we meet someone, or our partner will finally change, or when the children grow up, or when we have more […]

  • Learning to self-express from the inside out

    To start expressing from the inside out has not been easy for me. Since childhood we’ve created coping mechanisms to self-censor in order to adapt to the environment, adjusting ourselves to others, people-pleasing, controlling their reactions to us. Unfortunately, we continue this behavior into our adulthood. But it no longer serves us, because it prevents […]

  • No one belongs to us

    Our childhood experiences and traumas play out in our adult relationships. Our attachment styles dictate how we show up in relationships and inform our core needs. Most of us relate from our mother and father wounds, bringing into our relationships old baggage: fear, woundedness, mistrust, the need to please, the absence of honest self-expression. So […]

  • From Living by other people’s Rules to Becoming your own Highest Authority

    I took a few weeks from posting my weekly videos to catch my breath, to take some time to feel into the changes that I’m experiencing. I enjoy observing how my personal journey mirrors what is happening in the collective. How my personal transformation is a journey of breaking out of living from outside rules, […]

  • Mother’s Day – My experience as a mother in less than ecstatic terms

    One of the more unexpected revelations of my work with women is the extent of the damage that occurs in our development due to the mother wound: the trauma of being raised by mothers who were cold, critical, withdrawn, mothers who could not give love, could not attune to their children.

  • The awkwardness of being me

    With all the processing I’ve done in the last years, all the effort to leave the smaller, the familiar version of me behind, she is still there. She is still my default setting: my inner child. My experience of me as a child, my somatic memory of it is painfully shy and awkward. Did shyness […]

  • "Just read your article, Love from Another is Unsustainable, in Elephant Journal. Wish this was taught in high school, it’s what I’ve tried telling people for years. But you said it so very clearly. Thanks for your work."

    Book Galina for speaking engagements
  • "Galina’s voice is strikingly unique, particularly in the feminist space. Her words carry the weight of deep self-enquiry and hard-won truth. She offers the reader a bracingly fresh perspective on relationships, femininity, empowerment, and self-responsibility. The revelations she unearths are often profoundly uncomfortable in their clarity but strangely comforting to finally hear spoken out loud. She cuts right through our layers of conditioning to the heart of the female experience."
