Have you ever felt so stressed and overwhelmed, you can’t rest?
No matter how hard you try to relax, your thoughts keep racing all over the place.
You are incapable of catching up on much needed rest and relaxation.
In my book “The Underbelly” I talk about how I exhausted all my energy, until there was nothing left in the barrel.
My mind was completely broken.
I spent time in a psychiatric hospital and received care and counselling from psychologists and psychiatrists.
They trained me in controlling my thoughts, by doing CBT.
But, there wouldn’t have been a chance in hell that any of it could work if I hadn’t been a healer.
I knew I would never be able to ‘find rest’ until I dealt with the wounded parts of myself that these thoughts belonged to.
I was hit by a truck in 2006.
While I made an incredible recovery, it had opened a can of worms deep inside my psyche.
In 2008, my whole internal reality came crashing down, and I knew that ultimately, it was up to me to find my way back through the maze of confusion and suffering.
The constant barrage of thoughts of self-hate and self-loathing came from my ‘abandoned and despised ‘inner’ children.
I had to start on a journey of finding and healing these wounded parts of myself to reduce the amount of hateful thoughts and increase self-love.
I almost had no capacity to love myself at that point.
Eventually, after healing and healing and more healing, I got to a place where I was able to rest, relax and be safe inside my own skin.
This is the goal of all healing.
Actually it’s a journey as well as a goal, because there will always be more to heal from.
Everyone has suffered some sort of childhood trauma, including you, if you are reading this email.
People often say: let bygones be bygones, don’t look in the past, your future is bright!” etc.
I guess I had done that for a big chunk of my life.
I moved to Tasmania and started afresh at age 19, and made sure my glass was always half full.
In the long run, neglecting to do our inner work will cost us.
Cracks start to appear sooner or later.
Because, ‘we’ might have moved on from a traumatic experience in our childhood, but part of us didn’t.
Part of us stayed behind, frozen, suspended in time, waiting for us to retrieve it.
So, let’s have another look at the mechanics of childhood trauma.
When we experience a traumatic event that is so threatening or painful, we dissociate.
There is psychological dissociation and there is also spiritual dissociation.
A fragment of our soul can actually leave us and this is experienced as soul loss.
It’s a protective mechanism that your soul does on purpose, it will leave your essence so that your psyche doesn’t implode on itself, so you can survive the painful situation.
In the beginning it could be a protective mechanism, but as time goes on, this missing part really begins to weigh heavily on you.
You can feel depressed, have chronic fatigue, feel half alive, constantly triggered, be accident prone, or suffer from chronic ill health.
There are so many symptoms that come with soul dissociation, and none of them are good!
As a healer its my job to look for parts of you that are not with you, and to integrate them back into your system, so you start to feel lighter, and experience a sense of wellbeing and belonging.
As you begin to feel so much better, your circumstances will realign to reflect the inner shifts you have experienced. (Your relationships and finances begin to flow!)
So today, if you resonate with any of this, please book in for a session with me.
I will get you started on your inner journey.
And, if you have been on your journey for a while, I can put wind under your sails!
When was the last time you received deep healing OR felt truly supported?
Tune in to the video below where I take you through a short process of some inner child work.
The intention is to bring a long-lost part of you back into the Greater Self, and to bring it back healed.
Join me on this adventure!
“The Underbelly” is not for the faint hearted!
Some people are shocked by the way I openly talk about my dark night of the soul, and others are truly inspired by it.
