It’s been a week since my car accident and dealing with what I now know to be a concussion and several severe muscle strains in my neck and back. Here are a few of the more holistic ways I’m taking care of myself: turmeric for anti inflammation, ice wrap to reduce swelling, CBD salve and honey sticks for pain, and this awesome neck pillow I found to help stabilize my neck and keep me upright! 💫🐝🍯 #holistichealing #concussion #concussionrecovery #musclestrain #cbd #honeysticks #turmeric #antiinflammatory #traumaticbraininjury #traumarecovery #holistichealth

🦋There can be no physical growth when there is unresolved trauma🦋
.
Left(2016): 170 lbs
Right(today): 149 lbs

The girl on the left is stuck, broken, withdrawn, but knowing. She knows that in order to stop feeling this way she must get to the root.
.
The girl on the right is thanking the girl from 2016 for making her look herself in the mirror, rewrite her stories and live in spite of it.
.
There is so much trauma that we experience, especially in our childhood that we try to bury away because society makes you believe that "it doesn't matter it was so long ago, you're so strong get over it", when in fact traumatic experiences slip through the cracks and show themselves in our adult lives when they go unresolved.
.
They show up as:
•withdrawal
•numbness •fatigue
•difficulty concentrating
•anxiety +fear
•anger, serious mood swings •guilt, shame, and self blame
•being startled easily
.
I lived my whole life feeling all of these things but never feeling as though I had a space to share what I was actually, feeling without being judged or being reminded that "I'm strong".
.
1st of all who came up with the definition of "being strong" ?!because I felt weak AF.
.
I couldn't just "shake off" these occurrences. They've sat with me, in my mind and on my heart, eating away at me for years, and I know so many of you experience this too.
.
That is your mind BEGGING you for help, begging you to get to the ROOT of these things and to work through them. .
So many occurrences happened in my adult life, especially college years that made me realize that I was hypersensitive, withdrawn, anxious, and I wanted to get to the bottom of it. .
If you're dealing with trauma:
.
Cut the crap.
.
Fu*k feeling numb, withdrawn, and unheard.
.
I want you to find refuge here🦋
.
Because I am fighting like hell to work through my stories and it has shifted me. I have so much compassion for you and I want you to know that I am here for you. With you. .
 I hope that you too will find the courage to take off the mask, peel back the layers and do some work with me. Because if the root is not addressed our potential physically will be capped🦋
.
Love and Light🦋

It's Saturday! I wish I could celebrate with those mermaid smoothies 😍 It was such a great week. Some lovely shifts happened, bringing me closer to myself and my family. Amazing New Moon magic on Wednesday and connecting with like-minded women changemakers yesterday. 
Today I'm going to celebrate a new addition to my friend's family #newbaby and other friend's birthday. Exciting day ahead 😊 
What are you celebrating today? What went well? What are your plans for the weekend? •

I can’t even put into words the amount of God wink’s I got the last 3 hours. 🙏🏽🙏🏽
▫️▪️ I went to the movies and every trailer was either about fighting through hard times, be a light that shines in the darkness of evil, keep going, you are a warrior, forgive those who have done you wrong, trust yourself etc. ▫️▪️
I SOBBED. I walked out of the movies looking like I just left a funeral. ▫️▪️
I’ve started following what my heart wants instead of fighting with my mind the past couple days and it’s crazy how free I feel. I am learning to take care, love & trust myself. 👑

My team of magical #healers have described the episodes I have sometimes at night: a #spiritualemergency, #hypomania, 'sounds like your nervous system is on fire', #flashbacks, a healing crisis, and a really fantantastic sign of #recovery . I am really getting better. I'm so grateful. I am also grateful to all my parents gave me that has supported my #resilience. #childsexualabuse #survivor #bipolar2 #moodspectrum #traumarecovery #ptsd #ptsdrecovery #bphope [image: red back ground with small photo of two kids climbing on a plastic rocking horse on a stand with springs. Words: I don’t remember the landscape of my toddler's unconscious at night
sitting up in bed, still asleep, screaming with my eyes wide open 
sleepwalking through the neighbor’s yard
my dancer father gathering me from my crib and taking me to the 
rocking horse
bouncing me on that horse and smacking my back with each bounce

He says I would relax instantly

I can imagine him - My dancer father trying to show me how to let go
Modeling the exhale The shudder The rag doll
Me, with the nervous system from the other side of the family
and an experience of sensitivity he would never understand

I think he may have saved my life then 
Tonight my nervous system is on fire again
I am trying to forget To let go To remember]

LIVING in the heart space is all about PLAY. When we step into the power of PLAY, we learn to FULLY LOVE ourselves.

I love pretty much everything Brene Brown and her stuff in vulnerability is life changing.  Our culture tends to make vulnerability = weakness = shame, but this is so very false.  Your true strength lies in your vulnerability.

Awareness of how psychological abusers hide behind different personas is critically important to recovery for survivors.

Definitely been a tough and challenging week. Lots of physical and emotional challenges. I don’t know what I would have done without energy healing, emotion code,  essential oils to release pain and 2 sister goddess with hearts as wide as the world their love reached me miles away.  I’m so grateful and blessed to use such powerful healing tools on myself. Using this stuff never means you won’t have bad stuff happen. It means you are more equipped to move through it. People often suffer in silence if they reach out support them. Healing is necessary in life’s divine and challenging moments. But sometimes you just need someone to pass by home and hug you or make you a cup of tea too. Breaking through to higher ground. #energyhealing #emotioncode #givemeahigherlove #essentialoils #traumarelease #traumarecovery #selfcare #healing #healerhealthyself #healerhealingherself #healersgonnaheal

Update: im most likely going to hospital Wednesday (possibly for the night) when i tell my therapist how im feeling. 😘 also, Mum is looking for an outpatient facility for this that might be opening. I’ll probably go there in May. 🌼 because of my cp, no doc’s going to risk keeping me in an inpatient unit as there is a liability on their part. see my second to last post for details.

Ready to head out west on the train next week: totally terrified but so very very EXCITED!!!! I definitely get travel anxiety - which is honestly a pretty common stessor 🙋🏽 SOOOOO what do I do? I make a list because lists help me A LOT - packing a few days a head of time & making sure I have a few items that will make the trip feel homie (slippers and my favourite tea). Travelling anxiety can totally be manageable it's all about finding what works for you. (Also just a heads up there will be lots and lots of train photos coming your way and some vlogs!)

'The adult survivor is at great risk of repeated victimization in adult life. (...) the child victim, now grown, seems fated to relive her traumatic experiences not only in memory but also in daily life. (...) The phenomenon of repeated victimization, indisputably real, calls for great care in interpretation.'

Our safe home is so much more than a place to sleep and a clean bed. It’s a place for trauma recovery...and laughter!
It starts with silliness joining reality. We laugh deep, laugh loud, laugh often.

Making sure my boys get all their nutrients is a full time, especially because we primarily eat s plant based diet. 
Eating vegetarian/ vegan calls for a lot of grocery shopping and meal prep. Every week I plan a grocery list, shop & cook a few things to have through out the week. Although a healthy life style requires time and effort, I now see it’s benefits.

The power to change anything is from within, not without. 
Look at your thoughts. At the beliefs that drive you.  Do they bring about freedom,  positivity or do they cause you pain? If it's the latter then why not challenge these beliefs. Why not try letting go of the belief and see how that feels not being bound by a boxed in view of the world. 
If the problems are consistent and you can recognise pattern of results then look at the thoughts and beliefs that drive the behaviours. .

Powerful words right there!🙌🏻 And so true, especially for my postpartum mamas out there!! We need to quit forcing ourselves into societal ideals of what a postpartum body looks like and start focusing on our recovery. Emotional and physical recovery. And by physical recovery doesn’t mean getting your six pack back. There’s plenty of women that get that back at the cost of peeing themselves and wrecking their pelvic floor. If this is your goal postpartum I ask you to really reflect on why this is your immediate goal after having a baby?  When it comes to postpartum recovery. Slow and steady is best.#physicalrecovery #emotionalrecovery #Repost @janetheclapp (@get_repost)

▪️▫️ God forgives and so should I ❤️ ▪️▫️I forgave someone today who I’ve been extremely angry with... For weeks I was thinking about it but made an excuse everyday... I finally picked up the phone and said “i forgive you for what you did to me” I’ve never felt better.. I feel at peace ✌🏽Even if you don’t say it out loud try forgiving in your mind 📍Nothing good comes out of holding onto pent up negative energy ❎ once you let go of the anger there’s room for more love 💕 👀⬆️🙏🏽

#truth Yoga, meditation are tools but not magical cure alls. Healing takes time, work, and beginning again and again, knowing the face of progress may change and thats OK. I'm by no means knocking the practices, just saying theyre not the only footstones on the path. .

I often say - I’d rather lose everything than live one more day under deception... being constantly lied to, devalued and disrespected. Alone is better than that.

____
But let me tell you something.

____
You need to be obsessed with the freedom.

___
When you decide to say fuck it and jump head first into our truth we free up so much time.

___
and space and energy. ✨You have time to pursue that idea you’ve been sitting on. ✨You have time time to focus on your health. ✨You’d have time to relax and start the hobby you’ve been talking about forever. ✨Your day would go so much smoother if you told the truth.

___
Sure, in the moment there may be some fear and even consequences.

___
But then would come the reward.

___
Then would come the intoxicating rush of freedom and exhilaration that knocks you off your feet.

___
The 2,000 pound elephant gets off your chest and you can finally take a deep breath and exhale...loudly.

___
When’s the last time you felt that kind of ease? Maybe ever in your life.

___
Do you want to experience this higher level of living but don’t know how to do it?

___
If your ready to experience this kind of true living, this Tuesday I’m starting a 6-week Mastermind that walks you through every step of taking bf your life back.

___
I’m there every step of the way holding you accountable and cheering you on to the life you know you were meant to live.

What does it mean to live our lives and move through the world from a trauma informed framework? It means to ask certain questions over others: instead of "what is wrong with this person?", we ask, "what happened to this person?". It is having the assumption that we all come to the table with trauma and emotional baggage. We all have nervous systems that have been negatively impacted by our culture of chronic stress. And we choose to believe that if given the right supports, anyone could do the healing work necessary to lead a fulfilling, successful life. When someone is stuck in unhealthy patterns, we can choose to believe that they must not have all the supports they need- not that they have inherent flaws. We don't ask why some people manage better than others- we assume everyone is doing their best and we mourn the gaps in support that cause people to suffer long term. By having this perspective we do not excuse toxic or abusive behaviors- we can still set boundaries with harmful people. But it is our understanding that changes. It is the way we move through the world that shifts. This is a trauma informed world view. See how it changes your interactions when you move through the world with this approach. #trauma #traumainformed #traumainformedcare #traumarecovery #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillnessawareness #traumaawareness #chronicstress #emotionalboundaries #ptsd #ptsdrecovery #posttraumaticgrowth #newperspective #traumainformedperspective

Welp. 😶
I talk often about how I “feel fat”.. I know I have body image issues, I restrict my food, feel immense hate, shame & guilt towards my body. ❎
❎

But It wasn’t until this afternoon I realized how SEVERE my body dysmorphia actually is. I took a picture and looked in the mirror and just said “shit I have a problem”
❎
this is probably the first time that I ever admitted out loud to myself that I truly have an issue.

I’m not posting this for attention - I am posting it because It’s time that I acknowledge I have an actual problem and I need to start actively doing some serious work to fix it.

Adrienne Gaither: HOW I GOT OVER (Transformer’s 15th Annual DC Artist Solo Exhibition) in today’s Washington Post Express (link in bio)
.

“I want to talk about a process of healing within the trauma. I want to normalize the conversation. We [all] have relationships with folks who have experienced traumas that we don’t know about, because there never seems to be an appropriate time to bring it up. I think traumas can be a catalyst to a new beginning — one of the biggest traumas in my life was the catalyst to me pursuing art as my career. Trauma is a part of our human experience, so there’s resilience that all of us have.”
