Link in bio | Did you experience childhood trauma? You’re not alone! Trauma of any kind is not solved by a simple “get over it” or “let it go”. This is a national issue not a socio-economic problem and it has a lasting impact on lives.
.
Listen to Dr. Nadine Burke Harris explain how childhood trauma effects our mental and physical health.

Okay... I don't really feel comfortable with posting this picture, because I think I look a bit ugly laughing like this.. but WTF? How can someone feel ugly while looking at a picture in which I am laughing out loud and obviously having the greatest time?? So I love this picture, I love seeing myself laughing, I am beautiful.

And so are you, no matter what you think you are, how you feel about yourself today: You are beautiful and a queen. 👑 💕👑

Shazziesviproom.com 🖤 A couple of days ago I broke my silence to my email list and told them what happened last summer. Unless I am forced to, I won’t make it fully public. But know that it left me scared for my life and deeply traumatised. In my quest to get my life and sanity back, I drank in all I could find about effective and fast trauma healing. I had already suffered at the time of the event, and there I was months later still suffering daily with emotional flashbacks, panic attacks and breakdowns. One of my friends told me of an EMDR practitioner who lives closeby. I’m about to have my second session with him and I feel better already. I have found deep healing and comfort in other modalities too. I’ve collected all this information and have teamed up with trauma psychotherapist Michele Paiva @paiva_helps_you_heal to bring you a six month book club Healing Our Trauma. Because through my searching, I came to realise I’ve lived my whole life in trauma. Even my birth was traumatic! I don’t know who I am without my trauma and you may be thinking the same. So let me ask you this question... WHO WILL YOU BE WITHOUT YOUR TRAMUA? Let’s find out together: Shazziesviproom.com 🖤🖤🖤 #timesup #timesupnow #cptsd #trauma #emdr #healtrauma #traumatherapy #stoptheabuse #domesticviolencesurvivor #domesticviolence #domesticviolenceawareness #domesticviolencerecovery

Today I woke feeling low and heavy (yes, therapists have these days too🙋🏻‍♀️). My morning hours contained a headache and general feelings of discomfort. By afternoon I knew what I needed to do (I have to practice what I preach!) - so off to the woods I went, to breathe deeply cold air, to walk mindfully on the crunching snow, to listen to sounds of birds and squirels scattering around the forest floor. Engaging my senses and grounding in the moment. While feeling the sun on my face, the wind reminded me this is a season of hibernation and settling and so I did my best to hold my heavy and low together, bringing self compassion and intention to where I carried this in my body and I walked. A shift was not immediate, however; by early evening I noticed that I felt more lifted and spaceous - it never fails to amaze me how much we can give back to ourselves when we listen to what our body and mind need - the hardest part is showing up! I wish you all moments of mindful listening, showing up and self compassion. 🌲❄️💛 #mindfulness# selfcare#compassion#nature#walking#mindfulmovement#traumatherapy#somaticexperiencing#cptsd#resilience#posttraumaticgrowth#grounding#senses#somatictherapy#somatic#winter#released

Saw these beautiful rainbows while waiting for my therapy appointment today. 
The last image is a good one for one of the places I’m at. 
Matthew and I both have complex PTSD. 
We’re a beautiful rainbow and then there’s this trauma piece in both of us that often cuts through the rainbow and leaves us in places of struggle. 
We do damn well for the shit we have dealt with and for the faultily rewired brains we have. 
But where is the marriage book on the shelf that addresses when the third person in the relationship is trauma? 🙇‍♀️

Gratitude check in...FRIENDSHIP
...
Friendship was not always easy for me. I used to be so deeply buried behind walls I constructed for survival, that my friends would become furious and exhausted with me! My distanced demeanor and cool “stoic” persona made people feel so unimportant. It broke my heart. I knew that they deserved more, but I couldn’t break through.
...
It took years and years of work, melting away my defenses through each new safe interaction with my therapist, working with plant medicines in deep therapeutic containers, and working with my body through exercise to release the energetic imprint of my traumas. Years of baby steps. The steps had to be small, so I could integrate. Large leaps in health would only increase my defenses and result in a contraction (cue self-sabotage).
...
I am deeply grateful that I am able to give and receive love after all those baby steps. I’m grateful that I can share laughter with my friends and tell them I love them and cry with them and expose my humanity. I’m grateful that they can feel my Love because I’m i afraid to show it. And most of all, I am grateful for those who have stuck with me and accepted me where I’m at over the years, even though it may have been quite to tough to be by my side.
...
Take time to notice your health an successes today 🙏🏽😘

I just want to forget about everything. Memories can’t be erased but I have to make them invalid. Not feeling things when I think about the memories. I will work my way to that point. When I’m ready.. now I’m not

And you can't tell who has experienced trauma or not just by looking at someone. Many trauma survivors get really good at hiding it. Some survive by excelling at everything and anything that they can. That's what we do sometimes to self-preserve. ⠀
.⠀
It's also worth saying that many trauma survivors cultivate a great deal of healing around their trauma and land in a genuinely better place. So much better, that someone from the outside could look at them and think that they've never experienced anything hard.⠀
.⠀
People across every identity and socioeconomic status can be haunted by experiences that would haunt anyone until they got some resolution around it. ⠀
.⠀
For those of you doing a lot of hiding -  I see you. I hear you. I don't judge you. Your pain is real and there is a strong coalition of people ready to be there for you.

*****TW*** (abuse)
*
*
Last night I woke up in chills to the sound of my own scream.  My heart was pounding as I felt the familiar sensation of dread. *
Ritualistic abuse has by far been the most difficult trauma for me to work through.  I remember the terror, being frozen and paralyzed in my body.  The evil presence around me I embodies with all my senses.  My fingers still tremble as I recall the memories of my worst fears. *
I look at my past and have deep compassion for myself, despite the years I spent cutting, restricting and purging.  I understand that I was acting outside of my value system and my behaviors others found disgusting.  I know one thing, I have managed to survive my own life.  At this point I am no longer surviving but I’m fucking THRIVING. *
If you are in survival mode....know in your heart that if you do the work....life gets better and easier.  Take your demons....deal with the core issues (many times the issues are@so much deeper then food). You deserve to THRIVE not just survive.....and don’t let anyone (including yourself) tell you otherwise 💪🏼

How Trauma can Affect Your Window of Tolerance. Great visual resource by @nicabm_ruth #windowoftolerance #therapy #traumatherapy #counseling #dysregulation #trauma #aces #balance
A true statement from a great book.

There’s always a way, maybe a transformed way, so very different than you expected and even quite vulnerable.
And it’s still energy and will take a direction. So let it flow and transform. Accept the change.

Focus, direction, innercise. 
Observe, take in, process, enjoy. Change continues to happen.
In life.

Take a break.
Please breathe.
Please exercise.
Every day.
...
Watch
Breathe in.. while counting to four
Wait
Process... while counting to seven
Wait
Breathe out..while counting to eight
...
Repeat 3 times, and then process, while breathing deeply twice & observe how you are, now.

Here is a video of Ron No'ar, CEO Ortech Defense, talking about the Beit Melacha protective shelter project.

Beit Melacha Center for Creative Arts and Education is located in the Shaar HaNegev Region in Southern Israel, and is in constant danger of Hamas rockets. Thanks to our generous donors, Operation Lifeshield was able to hire Ortech Defense to create a safety room for the school.

Every difficulty in life is an opportunity for growth. Those of us who have survived trauma often can appreciate life at a deeper level than we would otherwise have been able.

Emotional Freedom Technique is one of the most powerful ways to quickly release self sabotaging patterns of belief and behaviors. This book was created specifically for moms, to help them release stress & tiredness, while focusing on being energized, patient, abundant and in control in the various predictable and often unpredictable challenges of Motherhood.

Over ten years ago I made this small ♡. I worked on it during the art therapy, which was a part of the traumatherapy group that was in. I worked on it for several weeks. I was inspired by something that I had read  in a book of one of my favourite therapists / authors (Riekje Boswijk-Hummel, perhaps the Dutch ones know her 😊). She writes that  courage is the power of the heart. It's a simple line. But to me, back then, it wasn't. I knew I needed courage. I was in therapy for quite some time already and it didn't work out. At all. I wasn't able to take the steps therapists wanted me to. At all. I couldn't move. At all.  I knew I needed courage but I didn't know where to look for it. Until I read that line. That simple line, that showed me where to search. It wasn't the right therapy, that one also didn't work out. But it was there where a made this small ♡. A reminder. Cold, pale, not even really 3-D. But a reminder. And a beginning. || •🌱• #towardsaplacetobe #healing #healingjourney #healyourself #courage #healingheart #arttherapy #artheals #healingart #artistherapy #kunsttherapie #arttherapist #traumatherapy #ptsdrecovery #cptsdrecovery #cptsd #lifeaftertrauma #dissociativeidentitydisorder #couragetoheal #loveandlight #followyourheart #followyourpath #followyourtruth

Who are your protective figures? They can be real or fictional, but they should provide a feeling of being emotionally and physically protected. This need for protection comes from our earliest attachment experiences which teach us about safety and trust. We all need these figures in our lives to help us feel less alone and that we are worthy of protection.  This is Jake, well a much younger version of the senior rescue dog that I have today. In doing trauma work, I ask clients to think of protective, nurturing and wise figures to hold onto, especially for more intensive sessions. Many of clients select Jake as a protective figure to hold onto when working through difficult memories. It’s pretty amazing to me that dog with a history of being abused has become a symbol of overcoming trauma for many people who walk through my door.  #attachment #tuesdaythoughts #psychotherapy #socialwork #psychotherapist #socialworker #psychology #trauma #traumatherapy #london #londonontario #londonont #londonontariocanada #londontherapist #londontherapy

"In trying-trying to trust / to dare to hope / she broke." || Some of us grow up, learning that trying to trust and daring to hope are highly dangerous. In order to survive they need to stop doing so. In order to survive they need to stop being. When they find a way out (if they do), many of them aren't safe yet. Not at all. A new battle awaits them. A battle in which the deepest longings, whispering of life and light, are two opposite things at the same time. It's the thing that keeps them still here, but it's also what puts them in great danger. For hope and trust are needed to hold on while fighting, but at the same time a source of unbearable fear. It's a hard battle. One that no one should be fighting. But many of us have to. Let us all be patient enough. •💧• #holdon #cptsd #cptsdrecovery #childabusesurvivor #childabuse #towardsaplacetobe #healing #healingjourney #healyourself #healyourlife #recoveryispossible #recoveryishard #lifeaftertrauma #dissociativeidentitydisorder #yourlifehaspurpose #arttherapy #healingart #artistherapy #arttherapist #artheals #traumatherapy #traumatherapie #traumatherapist #traumart #traumasurvivor #loveandlight #lightworker

Neuer Second-Hand-Mantel. Verliebt ♡

Vielleicht muss man sich nicht in eine Schublade stecken. Nicht vielleicht nicht. Man muss sich nicht in eine Schublade stecken. Veränderung, innere und äußere, ist gut. Und wichtig. Innere noch wichtiger als äußere - für mich. Auch wenn mir das oft nicht bewusst ist und ich das Gegenteil leben möchte.

Man darf sich jeden Tag neu definieren. Das ist ein Geschenk. Die Freiheit zu haben, sich neu zu definieren. Wenn das nicht klappt, dann die Freiheit, eine bestimmte Sichtweise und Haltung einzunehmen - zu Situationen, die man gerade nicht ändern kann und die unaushaltbar erscheinen. Das ist schwer - aber bewusst machen, das man diese Freiheit hat - das ist wichtig. 
Verwirrte Gedanken. .

Today I did (at least) two brave things, two things I thought I couldn’t do at first
.
.
When greeted with the opportunity, my soul shouted “No thank you. Not yet.”
.
.
And then I took a break for awhile and, dear ones, when I came back to the invitation, I said “Maybe, let’s try.” And it was uncomfortable and I wanted to bail
.
.
Instead, I set the timer for 10 minutes (literally) and looked straight ahead into the wind for those 10 minutes
.
.
I did the thing! Twice! .
.
And now I’m more excited about having been brave than the things I did themselves
.
.
Be brave, dear ones, then smile gently at yourself because you were

I have lost 100lbs this past year. It wasn’t due to physical #werk though. It was due to facing my #trauma. As I unpacked my psychology with my #therapist, my body began to react with physical side effects associated with #emdrtherapy. I was diagnosed with #anorexianervosa. I learned what foods my body allows and stayed with that. This is a battle I still fight as I am still in #emdr #traumatherapy. But I will tell you this- as you see a new physical person emerging in body, you will see a renewed version of me also emerging as my spirit is #stronger than ever.  #unbreakable 💪🏼

Coined by Psychologist Cliff Arnall in 2004, Blue Monday falls on the third Monday of January every year. Many criticize Blue Monday for placing extra pressure on those already struggling with a Mental Illness and in some ways, I have to agree. While many of us struggle with "post holiday blues" , any day can be difficult for us-- not just a Monday. I do appreciate the attention surrounding mental health received on this day; however, let's be sure to continue the discussion of mental health every day! You matter Every. Single. Day! If today is tough, be kind to yourself and give yourself the space you need to heal and grow. If you are looking for ways to find comfort in today (or any day), read our latest blog post about safe spaces.

Day 1. I took about SIX weeks off. My heart has been heavy lately ... consumed with grief as I process trauma and major changes in my life. Today we “reset the clocks” in our challenge groups for our 80 day challenge, and as some prepare to do the most advanced program we’ve ever released, I made my own calendar to reflect where I am at in my journey. The next 80 days are all about self care, self love, recovery and release. Consistent, but not too intense. Not this time. I’m also adding meditation to my morning routine (1 week in now), posture stretches (my massage therapist yesterday finally got through to me on this 😝), and rebounding (this is great for circulating lymph and detoxing, but it also makes me HAPPY). It’s just an extra 15 min or so for these but makes such a huge difference :) more in my IG stories @chanellejumper.fitfoodie 
Have a great day!!

This morning I had a 2 hour EMDR session on the sexual abuse trauma😣 So I really don't feel like eating on one hand, but on the other hand I want to binge.. just because I don't want to feel the emotions I'm feeling at the moment🤐 During the EMDR it was okay to express my feelings and now it's up to me to let them stay. I can go through this and don't have to do it alone💪🏻 So going to eat this lunch and then off to a friend for some workouts and distraction💞 #emdr #trauma #traumatherapy #sexualabuse #processing #emotions #feelings #letthemstay #itsokay #gonnagettroughthis #realrecovery #recovery #edrecovery #ed #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorderrecovery #bulimia #bulimianervosa #bulimianervosarecovery #proud2bme

Autonomic nerves —sympathetic and parasympathetic—regulate much of the body without one's conscious knowledge. Sympathetic nerves branch from spinal nerves and form a chain that sends fibers to the organs. Parasympathetic nerves, including the important vagus, usually reverse the action of sympathetic ones. The afferent nerves are responsible for relaying sensations from the body to the central #nervoussystem (CNS), while the efferent nerves are responsible for sending out commands from the CNS to the body to stimulate muscle contraction.
⚡️
Both have communication “hubs” in the form of ganglia, which are further grouped into ‘plexes’ - long considered the “nerve brains” that register a substantial amount of neural information. In the case of parasympathetic fibers, the quality at which these relays operate is crucial in determining body presence and recovery.
⚡️
There are five spinal nerve plexuses—except in the thoracic region (the solar)— which serves in the forms of autonomic plexuses, many of which are a part of the enteric nervous system.
⏬
5 Spinal (Sympathetic Plexuses):
Cervical Plexus—Head, Neck and Shoulders.
Brachial Plexus—Serves the Chest, Shoulders, Arms and Hands.
Lumbar Plexus—Serves the Back, Abdomen, Groin, Thighs, Knees, and Calves
Sacral Plexus—Pelvis, Buttocks, Genitals, Knees, CalvesFeet
Coccygeal Plexus— (internal organs) ⏫
Autonomic Plexuses:
* Celiac #plexus (solar plexus)—Serves internal organs.
* Auerbach’s plexus—Serves the gastrointestinal tract.
* Meissner’s plexus (submucosal plexus)—Serves the gastrointestinal tract.
.
Notice the suspensitory ligaments interwoven to fixate the nerves and aorta to the spine and surrounding structures. 😲

Black puppies are hard to capture in photos...joy is not. A well-populated beach is one of our favorite places to go. Morgan must say hello to EVERYONE—dogs and humans—and chase every seagull. He never runs off more than 50 yards ahead and always looks back to make sure I haven’t disappeared. He gets joy out of these adventures and I bathe in joy as I watch him play. Tonight, my heart rests happy and full. Where did you find JOY today?

I don’t tell people shit. They don’t deserve to know me in any kind of way. They judge me before they know me, and when they know me they take advantage of that. I’m so done with sharing my feelings with other people, y’all can leave!  Nobody will ever take me for granted again :)..
