There are many ways we traumatically dissociate. Most are involuntary (feeling removed from your own body or the world, memory gaps, shifting into different identity states especially if you are triggered by memories or flashbacks) and some are “semi” voluntary in the sense that we partake in activities excessively as a distraction to numb ourselves out. ❤️ What brings some relief to dissociation is (with the help of a trauma informed therapist) mindful awareness + reorienting yourself to what is happening both within you and around you, as well as achieving some integration when it comes to fragmented memories and identity states. Remember, dissociation can be a trauma response and survival instinct – it may have served to protect your brain in the past while the trauma was happening. You can appreciate its purpose while still working toward healing. #trauma #cptsd #ptsd #complextrauma #narcissisticabuse #shahidaarabi #dissociation
Make peace with your body today my friend,
for it has toiled for many years just to keep you alive.
It has grown, weathered virus and disease,
healed countless wounds and fought many unseen battles, to keep your soul intact for its journey through this life.
Yes it has changed but it has been changing since the day you were born.
And it will continue to change until the day you die.
Make peace with this.
Striving against this change, is like trying to blow away the wind. Futile, pointless, misery-making.
Your body has served you well and done so with your daily hate and disapproval.
It has suffered years of daily, hourly negativity, pulsing its way from your brain to your cells…
Not good enough, not attractive enough, not perfect.
And every day you thought it wasn’t perfect, it really, truly was.
It was keeping you alive, supporting your rash decisions, counteracting your foolish mistakes, doing everything in its power to stay in the game.
Make peace with your body today, my friend, say your apologies, right your wrongs and move on with appreciation.
You are blessed.
Look around you, not everyone is so blessed.
Not every one is breathing, walking, thriving.
And whilst you are looking around, see that nobody is perfect. The way a body looks, says nothing about its strength, its longevity, its endurance.
This is not a rehearsal, this is your one shot at a life well-lived.
Make it count ❤
Complex trauma when you are a perfectionist is very much like having a thousand tabs open and trying to cater to all of them at once, only to focus on the ones that are not necessarily “high priority” yet somehow seem more emotionally important. Who else can relate? 😂 If trauma has affected your executive functioning – your ability to plan, judge, make decisions, etc. you are certainly not alone. #cptsd #complextrauma #narcissisticabuse #toxicpeople #toxicrelationships
We just had a solar explosion go off.
It has hurled a CME towards us.
We have an unstable sunspot that will be turning to face Earth later this week. Venus happened to be passing the Sun at the same time that latest blast went off. That means we are feeling these energies extra. That also means more are coming. We are also feeling the energies of the 1/11 Portal. This portal is shining a light on our love life and finances. We are very much feeling the influence of that Venus blast right now. We are in such a heightened space energetically.
We are instant manifesting right now like never before. Anything your thinking of will materialize. The energies of the 1/11 Portal are helping us to anchor into 2022. This is the space where you get excited about your year ahead. You have so much space and potential to create something new. This week we also have a powerful alignment happening with our Milky Way. Jan 13th- 16th the Moon will cross the Winter Hexagon and the Milky Way. The Winter Circle is made up of six stars, each of it’s own constellation.
We have Sirius, Rigel, Aldebaran, Capella, Castor & Pollux, and Procyon shining down on us. That means we are going to continue to be having extra Galactic Energies pouring in this week as the constellations of Canis Major, Orion, Taurus, Auriga, Gemini, and Canis Minor align. The Milky Way also cuts through the winter hexagon as well. That makes this week an amazing time to check out the stars, you may be able to see our whole Milky Way Galaxy.
Jan 17th we have a Cancer Full Moon. This is the Wolf Moon. This Full Moon will help take our intuition to new heights. It’s a great time to be tapping into your inner guidance right now. It’s also a great time to be brave and to forge a new path.
Many of you are Indigo Souls.
You came here to break the karmic chains for humanity.
You are wayshowers for humanity.
If your feeling guided to make a new path, or a new way, forge or follow it.
This Full Moon is bringing extra light so it will make your path more clear…
Please check with a care provider if you have any concerns about your health. That being said, here’s a reminder of symptoms we might experience during energy shifts. ~ Pam Younghans
“10 Symptoms of Ascension Flu”
by Katherine Anne Lee
With any kind of physical ailment, there’s an energetic root. This could be obvious – like the same old stress at work that always makes your shoulders ache. Or, the root of your illness could run so deep that it’s ancestral, carried in your DNA and impossible to identify, looking at only this lifetime. A thorough treatment of a physical issue requires tapping into this root, into the energetic cause, which could be something like a trauma, a familial belief pattern or even an ancient spiritual contract. Find a way to access this, do the work to clear it out and you’ll see its physical manifestation shift.
It works the other way, too. If you make conscious changes in your energy body, if you unpack some old, limiting thought pattern or belief system, or let go of a harmful emotion like shame or guilt, then a ripple effect will move through the energy bodies, until it reaches your physical body. And it’s here on the physical plane that, even if you’re feeling emotionally tip-top, the last vestiges of this emotional block will emerge, until your whole being has been realigned.
But as this happens, it can make you feel pretty crappy. But don’t worry. It’s common. So common it has a name: Ascension flu.
Ascension Flu and Symptoms
Here is a list of the most common ascension symptoms, and yes, many of these are very similar to “the flu.” But before you put that skeptic’s hat on, ask yourself… what’s that all about?
- Aches and Pains
Unexplainable achy-ness, joint or muscle pain can be a sign that your body is re-adjusting to a new frequency. Commonly, dense energy builds up in the neck, shoulders, and back. And when this is being forced to dissipate, it hurts!
Gentle yoga flows, targeted energy healing and drinking plenty of water, and adding mineral salts to your bathing water, are all ways to soothe these flu-like body aches.
Some of the worst ascension symptoms to experience are headaches. Often these relate to the third eye and/or crown chakras being opened, causing any ‘junk’ that’s in the way (possibly stored in the pineal gland) to be released. Overthinking, and trying to ‘figure things out’ will often make it worse, as the higher vibrational alignment you’re being called into isn’t (yet) perceivable by the logical brain, so doing this is an expression of your resistance.
Essential oils are a great healing resource for these kinds of ascension headaches.
- Runny Nose/Blocked Sinuses
Symptoms that may also be connected to the third eye chakra. But in addition, an excess of mucus can be a physical manifestation of the intense release of debris from your whole being. If accompanied by coughing, and the mucus is being brought up from the lungs, it’s a sign the heart chakra is undergoing a clearing too.
- Sore Throat
Related to the ascension symptoms above, a sore throat can be a further sign that your highest chakras are moving into wholeness. But a sore or achy throat also ties into self-expression. Many lightworkers and people who are raising their consciousness and undergoing spiritual awakening are still not talking about it openly. Sure, it’s scary and puts you in a vulnerable position (and a lot of the fear we hold of talking about the unseen realms is down to ancestral conditioning) but it’s the truth, and it’s important to discuss. As an ascension symptom, a sore throat may indicate the adjustment occurring, as these old fears of speaking out are released.
- Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
This is unexpectedly common and actually pretty scary for many people. Can last just a few moments, or go on for a few days. As sound is the closest vibration to the astral realms we’re able to feel through our senses, it’s where many of the finer adjustments of ascension can be perceived.
Can also indicate the sphere of your personal awareness(to all facets of life, seen and unseen) being widened.
- Sensitivity to Noise
Another flu-like ascension symptom which can make it truly hard to get out there and face the world when you’re suffering is high sensitivity to noise. Related to the point above, particularly if you’ve been working through emotional blocks relating to conditioning around your perception, and what you believe to be true about the world.
This may also be a precursor to the emergence of clairaudience – the ability to hear psychically.
- Fluctuating Temperature
A common flu-like symptom caused by spiritual activation is your body temperature rising or falling unexpectedly. Imagine your phone when you’ve been on a call for an hour- it gets uncomfortably hot. When there’s a lot of ‘behind the scenes’ activation happening, your body temp can get way out of whack.
- Heart Palpitations
Scary, yes. Your heart rate may change, speed up, or flutter without any external cause. This may be another symptom of the heart chakra activating.
But of course, if this goes on for any length of time or is genuinely distressing or worrisome, get yourself to a doctor quick smart.
- Changes in Appetite
The human body’s need for physical nourishment can fluctuate dramatically when your level of consciousness rises and symptoms of ascension hit. You may not be hungry at all for months. You may feel starving all the time! You may crave only light, raw food as the vibration of your physical body rises. Or you may desire heavy, protein-rich food as you feel the urge to ground. Don’t resist whatever messages your body is giving you. Eat what you need to. When you need to.
- Lethargy / Low Energy
A very common symptom of spiritual awakening is low energy levels. Of course it is – moving through such a lot of internal adjustments is exhausting work!
But if this becomes ongoing or shifts into depression, seek help. Long term unhappiness is not acceptable, whatever your circumstances.
- Sleep Patterns Changing
Regularly waking up at 3 am? Needing a mid-afternoon nap? As your internal body structures are reorganizing and up-leveling, you may find that you need to recharge at odd hours of the day, or that you wake up energized at equally odd hours of the night!
As frustrating as this is when you have a 9-5 to hold down, or children to take care of, this is a very normal sign of spiritual awakening. So when possible, go with it. And trust that your body is doing what it needs to and you will return to balance.
