A theoretical model created by Samantha Kaaua to help individuals better understand all parts of self and to overcome their greatest fears and challenges. This innovative approach helps to deepen one's practice of self-acceptance and self-love and improve their results in all areas of life!
Over the years of working as a Substance Abuse Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist, I found that what people lacked most was self-love and self-trust. There were many ways that I learned how to teach self-love to myself and others that included affirmations, self-care activities, and setting healthy boundaries to name a few. However, both in my own personal and professional journey I saw that there was something missing.
Positive affirmations didn't work for me, doing a skin care regimen only made my inner-critic louder, and setting healthy boundaries just made my life harder and created more distance with those I loved. So I looked for answers by going to therapy myself, attending trainings galore, and reading through all the personal and spiritual development books. Although I didn't find a single answer in all of those places, what I did come up was this:
We all have different parts of self that show up at different times in our lives. These different parts of self were created during impactful moments in our lives that was connected to strong emotions; good or bad. Once these parts, or personas, are created in us, they exist forever more whether we like them or not.
When I first started working with parts, I called it shadow work. I looked at the parts of self that we hid from the world and didn't want anyone else to see; the parts we are ashamed of. However, as I continued to do my own work and shared my work with others, I realized that we weren't just dealing with the parts of self that we condemned, we were working with ALL parts of self!
That is when the Inner Mosaic method was born. I love to help women to discover all the different parts of self in order to love and embrace every aspect of their Inner Mosaic. The term Mosaic means "a picture or pattern produced by arranging together small colored pieces of hard material, such as stone, tile, or glass." I believe that each individual has a beautiful mosaic within themself; a masterpiece of life impressions and imprints.
In order to see the beautiful Inner Mosaic and reach your full potential, you must be willing to look at all the pieces even if they look dark and scary. I found that through my Inner Mosaic method, we no longer need to memorize positive affirmations, force ourselves to start any new self-care routines, or set rigid boundaries. We easily learn how to trust ALL parts of self and self-love becomes second nature.
