Holding Space for Others

Holding space.

It’s a phrase we tend to use a lot but what does it really mean and why does it matter?

Holding space means that you are giving up on the need to change someone’s life. You’re giving up on the desire to try and control someone’s outcome. You’re allowing people to be who they are and where they are in life and you’re allowing yourself to deal with whatever feelings YOU have about the choices they’re making.

Holding space means that you trust that whatever the outcome, it’s the outcome that is meant to be. (Even if it’s not the outcome you wished it would be.)

But it’s hard, ya’ll. Make no mistake about it. Holding space for other people is hard. It takes effort and grit. It takes awareness and a conscious intent to let others be who they are. AND it takes a strong understanding of your own willingness to be where you are and feel whatever it is you need to feel.

It’s hard.

It’s also confusing sometimes because there is a line between accepting poor treatment from someone and holding space for them.

You see, holding space doesn’t mean that you accept poor treatment from anyone. But what it does mean is that once you exert your perfectly loving and healthy boundaries — you let others feel whatever they need to feel as a result of the assertion of your boundaries; you don’t try and control it or them.

On the recorded Instagram broadcast below, I give two crystal clear examples of what holding space looks like and why it’s important.


In love with love,

Christina Renée Joubert is a truth teacher, healer, speaker and coach.

She’s also founder and CEO of Teaching the World to Love; author of When Soulmates Unite – Learning to Love Ourselves from the People Who Can Hurt Us the Most; creator of The I Choose Love Project; creator of Love. Pray. Talk; and a proud mommy to a beautiful little boy.

One of the things Christina’s students appreciate most about her is that she doesn’t just talk the talk, she walks the walk.

Like many of her students, Christina has overcome many hardships in her life. She’s also healed herself from several debilitating addictions, a “generalized anxiety” diagnosis, the need for dysfunctional relationships, a fear of losing love, devastating insecurities and from a life-long belief that she was not worthy.

Her trials, tribulations — and the ability to become better because of them — have also reinforced her belief that nothing happens to us and everything happens for us.

This is the thought-methodology she teaches; teaching that there is purpose in our pain, glory on the other side of our hardships, and, love surrounding us and guiding us always — even when it doesn’t feel like it.

Christina also teaches that wherever we hurt the most, we also have the greatest opportunity to heal the most. If you’re ready to heal, she’s ready to guide you.
