Hi everyone. I was inspired by the picture above to write about some tips for emotional healing:
Many people don’t realize that PTSD can originate from emotionally violent homes or events as well as physical trauma. When past trauma comes up to the surface because something triggered you, know that it is on it’s way out and be kind to yourself about it. Look at it, love the child you were who had to endure that feeling, and comfort yourself through the pain that you were never allowed to express until now.
One way to do this is to write your painful feelings out in a journal for your eyes only, know you have good reason to feel this particular painful feeling, then say goodbye to it and release it (visualize this negative energy leaving your body to be dissolved and replaced by love from heaven above).
During this process of healing a layer of PTSD, take it easy, have self-compassion, and reduce all stress. Do not numb out, avoid, or medicate your feelings. Now is the time to take time to love yourself and heal these deeper wounds.
You will feel stronger after this layer-by-layer process because you will then have access to more of your true, authentic, loving spirit that has been there all along. You have been waiting for …YOU!
With comforting and caring wishes as you heal,
