I have observed it in myself and in others too that what we tried to hide the most about ourselves is where we are wounded. Except that we cannot heal until we  ‘expose this wound to the Light’ . It means that we acknowledge the wound by becoming aware of the way we protect this wounded part of us. As we are unique individuals we adopt protective behaviours that suit our personality the best. We need to discover these as well as the underlying pains, shame, anxiety, anger, helplessness or else. As we do that, we become receptive to the Divine Light and Love that heals all wounds. It simply happens by our self-acceptance and bracing ourselves just as we are.
