I know I’m not alone in this.
I was a time-bomb waiting to explode.
They say trauma lives in your body for seven generations.
Until we become aware of it, release it, heal and start over.
We’d said farewell to my dad that afternoon; later that day my body released, exploded, let off steam and I crashed. Looking back, my body had held everything together forever – until it no longer could. It had had enough!
Although I’d been on a healing and personal growth journey for many years, I’d not realized the enormity of the trauma residing in my body. Up until then, I’d been dealing with the trauma I was aware of totally unaware of the deeper layers and root causes.
After that day, my healing journey intensified as I was determined to make it to the other side, heal and grow. Over the subsequent months, more and more stored trauma surfaced, ready to be released and healed. I’m not going to lie and say it was easy; yet I’m so grateful I’m no longer carrying that trauma with me through my life.
What I do know for sure, through my experiences and my clients, is that when we’re willing to process what’s happening as we’re going through it, we’re less likely to retain trauma as a result of our experiences.
When you’re going through difficult experiences it’s harder to process what’s going on and make sense of it alone. When you bury it, carry on and push through without processing you run the risk of turning your fears, stress and worries into trauma, health issues, low energy or other negative consequences that reside in your body and have detrimental impacts on your well-being.
Noticing, acknowledging and processing your feelings and concerns increases your ability to cope now and in the future.
If this is you, or someone you know, my encouragement is for you to process it sooner rather than later.
