Forever Grateful - healing from trauma, abuse and loss

Forever Grateful - healing from trauma, abuse and loss

I am forever grateful to my friends and GoddessLife community who consistently and gracefully root for me like I’m a champ and provide a gentle place for my tears and fears to flow. Though it’s only March, this has been an epic year of healing for me. When I set my intentions January 1st, I had no idea how they would manifest in my life. In the past, I have practiced a googleplex of healing modalities hoping to “let go of my old stories” of trauma, abuse and loss. After all, they no longer serve me, right? It’s frustrating that I spend my days empowering other women and my nights dancing under the stars in the cabin of my dreams – yet I intermittently still feel deep sadness from trauma, abuse and loss that happened long ago. This morning as I meditated and stretched besides my cabin's hills of green, I was thinking that I don't know if the sadness will ever go away entirely because I think sorrow is an appropriate feeling given the circumstances. A magical shift in how I am experiencing healing is afoot. Maybe the healing IS that I am able to feel sadness now and then AND that I am resilient enough to feel vs. being depressed or wanting to numb/self medicate my pain due to suppressed trauma. I don’t have it all figured out, but I do know that it takes a village to heal from trauma. Thank Goddess for the Internet and the connectivity it provides. Please know you are NEVER alone and there are always someone you can ask for help.

I’m Forever Grateful,

It does take a village. Lately, I find myself crying to strangers over my situation. Even though I'm not close to some, they give me their full attention and for that, I am grateful.
