You are one of 7 billion exactly like you in this world and that can feel like the loneliest place to be sometimes. Valuing connection is not a bad thing and feeling like you do not have it means that you require more authentic connection. ✨

Trauma can create something like an injury to the emotional body. There is nothing wrong with this and like with the physical body it may require you to learn new skills or tools to cope and move forward in life. The therapeutic process can be a great place to start.✨

You can feel pain and discomfort while you are healing because healing is really acceptance of what is. It is only through acceptance that we can choose freely and authentically for ourselves which can lead to a more peaceful life. ✨

You are the Guardian of your body, space and things and so you and only you can determine who is allowed access and under what conditions. Other people do not get to decide the conditions needed to access you, your space or your things. ✨

You are one of 7 billion exactly like you in this world and that can feel like the loneliest place to be sometimes.

Many people try to avoid ever feeling lonely or being reminded of their ‘aloneness’. They can hold on to friendships or relationships that bring more pain and hurt than love and care to not feel it. There really is no need to do this because that feeling of loneliness only means that you value connection and do not feel like you have it.

Valuing connection is not a bad thing and feeling like you do not have it means that you require more authentic connection not to hold on to or keep inauthentic or hurtful ones. So try to build new connections or find a better more authentic balance in your existing ones. ✨

A traumatic injury to the physical body can create a handicap to its physical development. If this occurs it can be difficult to navigate, but there is usually something or some information that can be obtained to make it easier to cope or move forward in life. This can look like physiotherapy or the use of tools like crutches or prosthetics with the physical body. Either way it means that the physical body with the handicap from the traumatic injury requires greater patience and the use of certain tools to do some things that others may be better able to do.

Well it is the same with the emotional body. It is important to know that emotional trauma can create something like an injury to the emotional body. This may mean that the emotional body may not be able to cope with certain emotional situations as it would if the injury had not occurred. There is nothing wrong with this and like with the physical body it may require you to learn new skills or use particular tools to cope and move forward in life. The therapeutic process can be a useful place to start learning more about this.✨

Many people can equate healing or being healed to not feeling uncomfortable or tough emotions. This isn’t so. Healing doesn’t mean not feeling pain. My interpretation of the image in this post is that the person has sunk deeper into their discomfort, fully embracing it which is a major part of the healing process and ultimately facilitates growth.

Imagine that you sprained your ankle; you can expect to feel pain and discomfort and you will have two options to treat with it.
1. You can ignore the current level of pain and treat your ankle like normal, which will create more pain and a greater injury to heal from.
2. You can accept the current level of pain and support yourself through it, which in this instance would mean making adjustments to ease your discomfort.

In the first option you would have essentially refused to accept your injury and this non-acceptance would have led to a greater injury to heal from. And in the second, you would have accepted your injury and worked with it. This acceptance and subsequent "working with it" can be considered the healing process.

And this is the same with your emotional body. You can feel pain and discomfort while you are healing because healing is really acceptance of what is. And it is only through acceptance that we can choose freely and authentically for ourselves which can lead to a more peaceful life. I provide one on one sessions where you can explore this concept through the therapeutic process if needed. ✨
