A lot of people don’t know this about me. I was in the Army for 8 years. I also experienced Military Sexual Trauma (MST) and Harassment. I have finally, after being supported and given a little push by my therapist to finally look at it, do the healing work and put a claim in for benefits.
I was in such fear, I couldn’t even go on a military installation or the VA without my body’s trauma/stress response kicking in. I did not get deployed. You don’t need to be deployed to experience PTSD. MST and harassment will do it too.
I wanted nothing to do with the military. I buried it that deep.
It has come out. I am healing. My claim is in. I’ve talked to and met a lot of wonderful people in this process with the VA, who have changed my view and helped my healing process.
My life is changing. I am grateful.
I’m so glad that I got that little nudge.
Thank you to all those who served, serve, are married to or part of the military in some way on this Memorial Day.
I create through my own healing and contribution globally to new consciousness through my spiritual growth. I am, through my way of being in the world – birthing a new awareness by healing the human heart and bringing it back into balance with nature. Learning to receive is the answer for greater human evolution and expansion.
Travelling throughout the US sharing my vision of Healing the Nervous System from Trauma to Attain Inner Peace and guiding people, to include empaths, highly sensitives and healers. I do this through speaking and a writing group called The Write to Heal – Finding Inner Peace through Writing.
Healing is best done in partnership…
I understand what it’s like to be a highly sensitive, empathic person who has experienced trauma AND 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.
Thank you for supporting my conscious business, I love and appreciate you!
