I can’t even begin to tell you what a crazy and powerful weekend this was. Between a full moon and lunar eclipse on Friday 5/5/2023 (which in numerology ends up being a 555 day) and the Mercury Retrograde (still going strong until 5/14), I had a lot going on. Practicing how to love myself was all part of the process during this time.
My discovery, while I was doing this reading, is that as a highly sensitive person, being out in public, especially on a full moon cycle really affects me, in that I pick up people’s energy around me even more deeply. As a Highly Sensitive Person, I am learning to create a space for myself that keeps me in balance and love. Apparently, though, I needed this opportunity to really recognize this about myself.
The reading, Free From Judgment, Free to Love, was spot on for me not to judge myself because I am highly sensitive and needed to love myself in order to take care of myself. It was definitely challenging being there and being able to take the walk on the beach helped release some of that energy I had picked up. Nature is such a healer.
Listen in as I do the reading and the healing process, explain what it means and guide you through coaching from my experiences, tools, and understandings.
Healing is best done in partnership…
I understand what it’s like to be a highly sensitive, empathic person who has experienced trauma and found inner peace.
Throughout my healing process, I came to realize that the trauma I experienced and the Complex PTSD that ensued was actually locked in my nervous system. With Cognitive Therapy done for most of my life, I was able to understand what was going on. Yet my body would react to situations that occurred and I couldn’t figure out why. I logically knew that I was safe, but I would have an immediate anxiety attack and my body would start to go into a stress response. People would tell me to “relax” (which did not help or work) and I constantly felt I had no control over myself. As a result, that feeling of being out of control created a Protective Mechanism for me to control things through codependency. It became a viscous cycle.
I also tried to meditate, breathe, relax, connect to a Higher Power; all of the things I was searching for throughout my life and was just not able to do. I could not figure out why… until I did. I realized that my knowledge of what was going on, what to do, how to do it, etc., was great. The challenge… getting my nervous system to regulate so I could feel peace. Only then would I be able to heal the Protective Mechanisms I created… and yes, there were plenty of them.
That’s when I decided to focus mostly on bodywork with some cognitive work mixed in. As a result, I was able to release the stuck energies in my nervous system so I could finally breathe, meditate and relax. From there, I began to feel the peace inside me.
Most of us that have been traumatized with highly sensitive nervous systems will have trouble attaining and feeling peace. Until you recognize what is happening and work to release the traumatic energies from your nervous system where they are literally stuck, you will feel stuck in your life.
If you think you are empathic or highly sensitive, I can assist you in discovering what is going on, empowering yourself and transforming your life to attain and keep your peace. Just like I am doing with mine. I work with healers as well.
I invite you to recognize yourself in me and see that you too can shift and find your Freedom.
