Self-nurture and care are acts of self-love. Not taking this seriously led me down a road to despair, hopelessness, frustration, irritation, pessimism and exhaustion. Before I knew it, I was stuck in a quagmire of dense emotions that eclipsed out the light entirely. I needed to address some unresolved emotional trauma from my past, having previously found ways to cope by suppressing and avoiding. Unfortunately, issues never magically disappear, all that happens is that I would drive myself harder to stay ahead of them. That wall out there in the distance, was getting closer and closer, until I slammed head first into it.
How do you get from ‘Pain to Power’? I’ve been helping my clients resolve and release emotional trauma for 12 years now, using scientific researched methods designed to get results, like EMDR and The Havening Technique. Guiding them out of the Shadow-Lands, to relief, freedom, renewed energy and happiness. We will only start to ‘like where life takes us’, when we are in the driving seat, and being guided by a navigational system of positive emotions, rather than stumbling blindly through the dense fog of suppressed emotions, trying hard to avoid that dreaded wall.
As mentioned, for me, I sought out a good Integrative Psychotherapist, had Inner Child and trauma sessions, went on holiday (first one in 6 years) and stopped working so hard. I learned to say ‘no’ a lot more too. As much as I’d like to help everyone, I can’t. The fog is lifting gradually, but I still need to be mindful and careful. I always tell my clients to put their well-being at the forefront of their lives, now I’m heeding my own good advice.
