Meet Dimple Rayat, a certified Rapid Transformational Therapist (RTT), Mental Health (Trauma) and Spiritual Coach at Insyc Therapy. Dimple Rayat thrives on transforming your well-being through the power of tuning into your own story. Your story of illness to wellness. Healing pain, anxiety, depression, PTSD to calm and peace. Challenges to triumph. Defeat to victory. Dimple believes,”Well-being is your birthright, not a privilege.”
Healing can look different for everyone. We have all faced difficult circumstances, setbacks and disappointments. In the face of adversity, how we harnessed courage at our thresholds and experienced triumphs makes each of us unique. In my experiences of over a decade of walking my spiritual path, I discovered mindfulness and meditation is a powerful tool to begin the transformation process. In contrast, while it offers many benefits, it is not the key to resolving the issues but the catalyst to create awareness and inner space while doing the necessary work toward one’s healing journey.
For me, it was a journey diving deeper into the parts I had neglected, dismissed and avoided unconsciously. I was unaware of such consciousness until I recognized my blind spots, core beliefs, and conditioning. Now I offer my experience and knowledge diversified with Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) and coaching to help others reclaim their inner power. Hence, my restoration journey, of what it takes to survive, thrive and win.
The most complex challenge I have come up with in my personal/professional life is the profound realization that not everyone by your side will have your best interest at heart, or have your back. That is okay because everyone is on their journey with their beliefs, experiences, and perceptions different from yours. It was natural for me to be caring, loving, accepting, and prioritizing others’ needs while overlooking mine; until I gained awareness of my blind spots, sabotaging beliefs, and self-limiting conditioning. Over time, I witnessed parts of me colored in strength, courage and love in contrast to the parts bleeding, injured and broken at the same time. We live in a society that condones vulnerability as a weakness, self-love as selfishness and healing as stigma. Therefore, wearing the shield of strength over unresolved painful emotions, when triggered, suppresses the warning signs, lessons and critical transformational processes waiting for growth and evolution to transmute one’s well-being.
Here are a few of many lessons learned:
Be patient with yourself and others
No one comes with a manual or a guide on living life. We do what we know best in the given moment with what we have experienced, learned and acquired growing up. When we know better, we do better. The key is to remain open to learning about yourself and others. Change and correct behaviors that no longer serve and are toxic to your well-being, while updating your core beliefs.
Trust the process
Nothing in life happens to us. On the contrary, life happens for us. Yes, even your pain has a purpose, function, an important role and intention for you, provided you are willing to receive it. Just as the lotus grows in the mud, you too have the ability to bloom under the darkness of grief, anxiety or depression.
Make yourself your priority
If self-love is the ultimate journey back to the self, we must acknowledge the unloved and undervalued parts of ourselves, to embrace ourselves fully. Learn to create and hold space for our weakness and darkness while the strengths and the light within.
Be Present in your Pain
Give undivided attention to your present, even if it means challenges. Your obstacles are not insufficient or here to deter you; they are stepping stones and motivations for resilience, wisdom and growth. Therefore, embrace them. Know, what is in the way, is the way through your pain.
Your story is valuable
What is on repeat in your mind? How do you talk to yourself? How do you pick yourself up after a failure? How do you celebrate your success? The story you tell yourself becomes your reality. Your every thought, feeling and emotion are valuable and valid; however, is it true? Remember, you have within all that you need. Focus on your resources and bring them to light and fruition with an empowering self narrative.
Set Healthy Boundaries
No one teaches us what setting healthy boundaries looks or feels like in our personal, professional, social, financial or spiritual life and yet it is the fundamental element for a happy fulfilling life. It is critical to set healthy boundaries for healthy relationships with the self and others for a wholesome you.
Learn the art of saying “NO”
I had tremendous challenges with learning the lesson of saying ‘NO.’ I was always the ‘YES’ person, even at the expense of my mental, emotional and physical health. Being able to say ‘NO’ is an act of respect and love for oneself and others. As before, saying ‘NO’ in any form to me was perceived as not caring, compassionate or selfish. Oh, was I wrong!
I would advise women of colour to do it because it’s one of humanity’s most essential services. To be part of someone’s healing and influence a trajectory of positive change is one of the most rewarding and meaningful lives you can create. Because this comes with great responsibility, it reinforces you to do the necessary work on yourself. This work is not only about serving others; it’s also serving the self to illuminate the path for generations to come by healing passed on ancestral trauma.
To me, “Women empowering women” means supporting, cheering on and sharing the name in a room full of opportunities even when they are not present—highlighting strengths and connecting to the right resources for one’s ongoing success.
I help not only South Asian women, but all women to re-connect and reclaim their inner power by processing and transforming personal and inherited generational trauma. I help them find their voice and express themselves effectively. To set healthy boundaries and say no without guilt or shame. I help them release the invisible threads of self-limiting beliefs of biological, cultural or societal conditionings sabotaging their happiness and peace. I help them live their happy, healthy, joyful best selves by transforming trauma, fears and insecurities into meaningful and purposeful processes. In short, I help women recognize, regain and reclaim their power.
I am always here for you. I got you. Allow your light to shine bright. Others’ opinions are mere reflections of their perceptions, not your reality. So, don’t make others’ fears affect you. Dare to explore. Dare to question. Be curious because your curiosity doesn’t make you wrong; it just makes you human.
My motto in life is: you can’t fill from an empty cup. It’s crucial to feed your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being to live a happy, healthy, wealthy joyful life. It is your responsibility.
Writing, meditating, being in nature, traveling, connecting with people, having deep conversations, walking, cooking, gardening, organizing, doing creative DIY projects. Such as designing landscapes, home decor etc. But my all-time favourite, besides my work, I am most passionate about spending time with my three children, family and friends.
I am chilling with the kids at home or running errands, planning and prepping.
Balancing and keeping my inner space decluttered is the most important factor in maintaining balance with work, life and family. It enables me to prioritize what requires my attention at a given time and the rest follows. I also thrive on scheduling everything on my planner, including “me time.” It keeps my mental space free for me to tap into my creative flow.
