Not everyone heals their trauma

Not everyone will heal in this lifetime.
It’s important that we accept and understand this.
The perpetual emphasis on acknowledging and healing trauma is a beautiful thing, but its not for everyone. Because some of us don’t have the capacity to heal. Some can’t even get out of bed, because of the weight of their pain and the complexity of their trauma.
Too much has happened, and there is no possibility of transformation. This is very hard to accept in our toxic positivity culture, one where trauma is the new buzz word and where people forget that they are not walking in someone’s else’s shoes. Just because you were able to heal parts of your past, doesn’t mean everyone can heal parts of theirs.
We have all lived in a trauma inducing culture.
Some of us didn’t make it through in one piece. That’s a fact. And if we can just accept this, and honor and comfort them as they are without any effort to ‘heal’ them, we actually stand a chance of co-creating the kind of trauma-sensitive world that avoids this level of suffering altogether. Because trauma is perpetuated by insensitivity. Our tendency to turn a blind eye to the truth of people’s suffering, to shame them for not healing, to blame it on their karma and their choices, is precisely the dissociative consciousness that perpetuates the trauma cycle. You want to help, but you just make it worse. Better to accept people right where they are. Better to provide comfort to the fallen ones. That alone will heal the world ..

My friend Erica nails it

Very proud of and for her

My latest addition to my compassion toolbox. I have a new found appreciation for the masculine struggle. We live in a world where a concerted effort was made to replace the wild man with the savage man. Becoming civilized and christianized (I’m not talking about Jesus’ teachings. I’m talking about how it was manipulated to subjugate people), being told to blindly follow orders, to turn the other cheek, being told that in order to receive spiritual enlightenment one had to turn away from sensuality…. The women became evil temptresses…. Some men even castrated themselves.
Over the years boys stopped seeing their fathers working a trade with their hands that would be handed down to them. They saw their fathers distantly, exhausted from having to comply and work to make someone else rich.
As necessary as feminism was and still is, men were asked by women to tame themselves, but by other men to blindly follow orders, turning warriors into soldiers, making them capable of committing atrocities… but some fights are still worth fighting, yet it’s hard to tell which ones, and whatever you choose it can feel like damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
We were all separated from our ancestors, deprived of important initiations. Men’s left(Feminine) sides withered. Women’s right(masculine) sides withered. I mean, regardless of gender we weren’t even allowed to hold a pen in our left hands!
Men were ostracized for expressing feelings, necessary for them to make informed compassionate decisions that could actually protect and serve. Women were robbed of their ability to make decisions for themselves and became mere objects.
This isn’t a man vs woman issue to me anymore. This is an US issue. Because we are all imbalanced and need to reclaim what we lost! But i will say that men still have the upper hand in making these long overdue changes, in standing up against the abuse of patriarchy, and they need help from the feminine to do this.
Whatever issues you have with androgeny, gender fluidity, trans, my take is that it’s the necessary evolutionary response to what has become of us.
I could go on but let me finish by saying that I SEE YOU AND LOVE YOU!!!

Energy Reminder

This February, our journey of awakening, healing and growth is dramatically accelerated by the activation of the 2222 gateway. There are four points of activation this month with the second being today the 11th. With today’s activation the energies moving through the gateway will initiate a physical transmutation that will ignite new energetic pathways within our physical body and our physical reality.

The energies are now flooding your physical body and will ultimately increase and expand your physical energy. If you have been feeling stagnant and or lost, you may now feel a sudden boost in energy and a new determination to take action awakening from within. As this energy intensifies it is important that
you focus on being grounded and deeply rooted within your physical form.
Be mindful that before charging ahead, you will need time to integrate and adapt to the inner changes that are occurring.

Inward Migration

“The inward migration is often a solitary journey. It’s where we go to slowly pick things apart, to examine truth, talk with spirits, and reimagine our world in new ways. This inward place is where we work with our own thoughts and imagination, and keep our own knowledge safe. This is where we fashion all the stories we want told, where we catch the essence of a story before it drifts away, or overrun by the power of other stories created to distract our thinking.” – Alexis Wright

Shamanic Healer

“In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions: “When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop being comforted by the sweet territory of silence?”

Heal yourself

Cure yourself with the light of the sun and the rays of the moon.
With the sound of the river and the waterfall.
With the swaying of the sea and the fluttering of birds.
Heal yourself with mint, with neem and eucalyptus.
Sweeten yourself with lavender, rosemary, and chamomile.
Hug yourself with the cocoa bean and a touch of cinnamon.
Put love in tea instead of sugar, and take it looking at the stars.
Heal yourself with the kisses that the wind gives you and the hugs of the rain.
Get strong with bare feet on the ground and with everything that is born from it.
Get smarter every day by listening to your intuition, looking at the world with the eye of your forehead.
Jump, dance, sing, so that you live happier.
Heal yourself, with beautiful love, and always remember:
You are the medicine ..

Stories

I no longer desire to hold onto the versions of me that feel heavy to hold.
The stories of my past brought me here and I love and respect their part in my journey.
But I won’t keep speaking them and breathing life to their wounds to make you feel comfortable because you struggle to embrace who I’ve become.
Growth is all there is and we must allow each other to evolve in all the ways destined for us.
My whole being is in harmony with itself
I am beginning to align my actions with my intentions more and more.
I am cultivating the space that allows me to be balanced in mind, body and soul
Perfection is an illusion that I will not chase.
My circumstances make me who I am today. I am not a victim.
I am a beautiful puzzle and I keep discovering new pieces that make the picture I have of me feel whole.
