Life After Trauma

Recovery from trauma is never as bad as the trauma itself.

Trauma seems to be a dirty word. The kind of word you mutter quickly and quietly, if you mutter it at all.

Unfortunately it is a word that often carries the ‘victim’ energy of shame, embarrassment and guilt – All human constructs that perpetuate the Victim embodiment and are totally misaligned with the Soul Truth of trauma.

Trauma is an important word to speak freely about. In speaking about it we learn from each other. We realise that EVERY human suffers trauma at some point in their life. Yes there’s different depths of trauma, and everyone will be impacted at differing levels because we are all individual. But to not talk about it, to not acknowledge it’s presence in human life, does more harm than good.

To heal from trauma we need to acknowledge its existence, speak freely of its personal impact, and support people experiencing it.

Trauma is not just something that impacts those who’ve gone to war or witnessed other horrific atrocities.

Our human life experiences contain many traumatic events – grief, loss, death, divorce, poverty, financial & property loss, miscarriage, abortion, loss of a pet, rejection, abandonment, defamation, slander, academic failure, eviction, adoption, changes in friend and social memberships, accidents and injury, abuse in any form, bullying, teasing, violence and assault are all examples of trauma.

How a person copes with their trauma is as unique as them, but one sure thing is everyone can heal from trauma and the healing journey is never as difficult as the traumatic event itself.

Once upon a time I would have completed rejected anyone saying this to me. So conditioned by society that trauma was taboo, not to be spoken openly about, I was fully in my ‘victim’ mode.

So filled with shame, guilt, embarrassment, self-blame and self-loathing was I that my ‘victim’ had free reign over my physical, mental, e-motional and spiritual self. My life was almost destroyed and my existence was insignificant.

I carried significant trauma with me all my life.

Adoption, childhood abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence (physical, financial and e-motional), rejection, abandonment, defamation, divorce, miscarriages, grief & loss from the death of my beloved Nan & Pop, giving up my successful career to be full time carer to Thomas. Yep. I had trauma in truckloads and the only Sovereignty I had was the ‘Queen Victim’ identity I adopted.

I’d done counselling, psychology, EMDR therapy, prescription medications etc etc etc. They helped somewhat, but they didn’t shift the energetic imprint trauma left in my body. They masked it and didn’t clear my body of the trauma.

Our body is energy. “Everything is energy” (Albert Einstein). Every e-motion and every experience leaves an energy imprint within our body. Some imprints are beautiful and leave us feeling good – love, joy, success, laughter, celebration etc. These are a light energy imprint.

Others leave a dark energy imprint – trauma, and all the causes of trauma fall into this category.

Dark energy imprints cause physical dis-eases, dis-comfort, and dis-ability.

I had fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, depression, PTSD, suicidal symptoms, social withdrawal and more. Thomas has ASD Level 3 and Complex PTSD from his trauma… born with it from the maternal stress from DV that I was under while he was in utero (medically attributed cause).

Trauma left unacknowledged and unhealed impacts our health & wellbeing. Fact.

To function optimally we want our body to hold the light energy imprints and release the dark.

Discovering it was possible to clear trauma imprints changed my life. But not until I had the courage to talk about it. To acknowledge it. To own my Soul’s Truth that I was carrying trauma.

My life is NOTHING like it used to be because of speaking about trauma. It took many years, but I made it.

My mission now is to help others to shift their trauma and heal their physical body and rebuild their life free from the baggage they carry.

It’s not always easy, but it is never as bad as the trauma event was. It requires love, guidance, support and trust.

Shifting the stigma and falsities perpetuated by society around trauma is my passion and motivation for the work I do.

I am living proof trauma can be shifted, your life re-woven from the threads of despair.
