Healing Trauma-Mind is possible by working with your attachment to the trauma or negative events in your life and the narrative or stories you created about it and yourself. This narrative, reactions and meaning may have become part of your identity. Healing this narrative helps it not pervade every aspect of your life anymore. www.thetraumamind.com
Healing Trauma-Body is possible by understanding the different ways your nervous system responds to perceived threat, stress or possibly still responding to past trauma. You can find help with discharging and digesting the experience so your body stops responding with fight, flight, freeze or fawn responses and can feel a sense of safety again.
Healing Trauma-Spirit is possible when we receive support integrating the shock we experienced to our beliefs, and find a sense of meaning and purpose in ourselves or in the world again. Trauma-Spirit can be from a significant tragedy or even less apparent when it is an occasional feeling of being young. This feeling can always be healed.
Experiencing complex trauma can feel like all of the signs in this image happening at the same time. Sometimes this is called a dysregulated nervous system or the feeling of always wanting to fight and flee at the same time. It is important to work with a trauma specialist to help you manage your symptoms and start find your path to self agency again.
Getting ready means asking yourself is you are ready to face the suffering and traumas that you have experienced. Are you ready to look at yourself and change behaviors or thoughts that are focused on what happened? Are you ready for real change?
Have you created a survival strategy that has become adaptive to your life and even part of who you are that may be from your trauma? What would happen if you let go of that identity even if it has been seemingly positive for you? Sometimes we have to let go of old strategies that keep our trauma unprocessed in order to thrive.
