Trauma Therapy & energy Healing

Trauma therapy is a form of hypnotherapy and energy healing that uses the experience of trauma to heal emotional and physical wounds. Trauma therapy promotes self-soothing, alleviates anxiety, reduces stress, and may help individuals come to terms with the impact of trauma on their lives.

The new paradigm in trauma therapy is designed to help people heal from the effects of trauma through a process called “energy healing”. Energy healing works by helping an individual re-energize their own body’s energetic field which provides emotional support for physical healing.

This helps heal many aspects of one’s life such as chronic illness, depression and anxiety. A typical energy healing session lasts one hour and involves various techniques including, Reiki (a form of energy healing), Transformational Energy Healing, 5th-dimensional healing, Mindfulness meditation and deep breathing exercises.

Trauma therapy techniques can be tailored to address specific issues or be used as a stand-alone practice that can be used in conjunction with other therapies (such as psychotherapy).

What are the 5 types of trauma?

There are two types of trauma, physical and psychic. Trauma is an experience that alters the brain’s function and behaviour. The term ‘trauma’ was first used in a book called Trauma and Recovery by Eric Berne in 1971 but became more popular with the release of Steven Hassan’s book on the topic in 1988. Today there are different types of trauma:

1. Physical – for example: accidents, warfare, sexual abuse, natural disasters – physical trauma involves physical pain (such as burns), harm to organs (such as bleeding), or injury to body parts (such as broken bones).

2. Psychic – for example: rape, incest, child abuse and neglect – psychic trauma involves psychological pain (such as nightmares) or psychological damage (such as dissociation).

3. Identity – For example: bullying or rejection by friends or family members – identity trauma refers to a sense of detachment from one’s self-concept and identity that can lead to self-destructive behaviours such as substance abuse and depression.

4. Trauma Emotionality – For example: having to face your own death If you have experienced any one of these forms of traumatic experiences you may be suffering from one or more of these traumatized states, depending on the severity of your wounds. The good news is that you can heal from them with proper treatment and counselling. And therapy is just one type of treatment after all!.

What is Trauma Therapy?

Trauma therapy is a type of psychotherapy that uses the power of energy to treat stress, anxiety, phobias and other psychological problems. There are three main reasons why people take up trauma therapy:

1) You have been subjected to traumatic events and you don’t know how to deal with your emotions and trauma.

2) You need to cope with painful situations and feel alone.

3) You have suffered from traumatic events and you want a better understanding of the things that happened to you.

These are not mutually exclusive motivations for taking up trauma therapy; most people who do it for one or both of these reasons also feel like it will help them in other ways. The fact is that there are many types of trauma therapy available, each with its own set of benefits and drawbacks depending on the reason for taking it up.

Combining hypnotherapy with energy healing is a powerful way of helping to change the way that your mind thinks (your mental health) and also releasing the energetic blocks being held by the body. This combination can help you to work through a traumatic experience and release the trauma memory. This leaves you free from the emotional or psychological harm that you used to experience and free to live your life.

How is Adult Trauma Treated?

The current standard of care for traumatic experiences is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). It works by helping the brain to reorganize and function in a more adaptive manner, which helps to treat symptoms. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy I find is more about distraction techniques than treating trauma on the deeper level that it needs to be healed.

The new standard in trauma therapy for childhood and adult trauma is a combination of hypnosis and energy healing. The energy healing part of this therapy is a form of trauma treatment that helps you to find the root cause of unhealthy behavior patterns and mental health symptoms. Each traumatic experience can be worked through and released in turn.

Two different therapies are used in trauma-focused therapy: hypnosis and energy healing. 

Hypnosis is a technique that helps the patient to relax and become more at ease with their bodies, while they are being hypnotized by the therapist’s voice.

Energy healing can be thought of as psychosomatic medicine, which uses various techniques to help heal a client’s body through treatment and other techniques. 

Self-Hypnosis as Your Own Trauma-Focused Therapy

Self-hypnosis is an approach in which you learn how to control your own mind without consciously thinking about it. It involves learning some skills like dissolving thoughts into your subconscious so that they cannot come back into consciousness, learning how to concentrate on what you want, how to focus your attention properly, and learning how not to react emotionally when you’re faced with something unpleasant and so on. Self-hypnosis techniques are based on previous research done in hypnotherapy. 

You learn relaxation techniques such as slow breathing exercises along with progressive muscle relaxation techniques like visualisation exercises for deep relaxation and meditation along with progressive muscle relaxation techniques.

Practised regularly helps increase the effectiveness of self-hypnosis so it becomes easier for people who practice it regularly to use it effectively in all areas of their lives including work performance, schoolwork sessions and all interactions around them such as family members or friends especially when they feel unsure about themself or others around them which may lead them into emotional difficulty.

How Does Trauma Therapy Work?

Trauma therapy is a powerful and effective form of healing that uses the experience of trauma to alleviate emotional and physical wounds. By soothing the mind and body, trauma therapy can help individuals come to terms with traumatic events, reduce stress and anxiety, and promote overall mental health.

The future of trauma therapy lies in energy healing, which works by helping individuals reconnect with their own bodies’ energetic fields. Through this process, individuals can access the support and healing they need to overcome trauma and begin the journey towards recovery and well-being. Whether you are a trauma survivor yourself or are seeking help for a loved one, energy healing offers a powerful new paradigm in trauma therapy that can help you on your journey to healing and restoration.

Trauma therapy is an approach to treating complex mental disorders that focuses on how the mind may react when faced with traumatic stimuli. It can be used for treating a variety of mental disorders including PTSD, schizophrenia, alcoholism and various forms of depression.

What happens during trauma therapy?

An estimated 65% of people have experienced a traumatic event such as a car accident, abuse, or disaster. One in six people will experience a traumatic event that is potentially life-threatening or life-changing. Trauma is the psychological and emotional impact of an event or experience that forces people to confront their emotions and thoughts about the situation.

Even if you had never experienced a traumatic event, you may be experiencing this type of emotional stress due to past events. People who grow up in a trauma-sensitive environment can be more likely to experience difficulties regulating their emotions when confronted with trauma-related situations. In one study of adult survivors of childhood trauma, 49% had had childhood abuse and/or neglect (physical or sexual), 41% were sexually abused by age 6 years, and 19% were sexually abused by age 13 years. Other studies have shown that adult survivors of childhood violence are more prone to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

goal of trauma therapy
The goal of trauma therapy is to help you to be free from traumatic experiences

What is the goal of trauma therapy?

The goal of trauma therapy is to help you heal from the lasting psychological effects of severe trauma. A traumatic event like sexual abuse, physical assault, and natural disasters impact the body in many different ways. All of these can have a huge effect on your mental health and wellbeing. The best way to heal from trauma is through energy healing, hypnosis and various other techniques such as yoga, meditation and mindfulness meditation.

While there is no one “right” answer to whether a traumatic event has caused PTSD symptoms within the mind or body. there are many treatment options available in the form of psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, energy healing and psychiatry. In fact, therapy is the only treatment option that has been proven to be effective over time. 

The goal of therapy is to help you learn coping skills to work around your symptoms so you can live a healthier life free from repetitive trauma. How does that work?

By understanding how your mind/body work, what triggers symptoms in particular areas of your brain, whether any particular event was just an isolated incident or part of a larger pattern/cycle/triggered by previous events; learning which therapies are most effective for you (i.e., hypnotherapy) without resorting to drugs or surgery; learning what emotional triggers are at play; creating new healthy patterns that don’t cause symptoms.

This way you can live a more balanced life free from emotional pain and burnout while providing relief for those who have experienced severe trauma in their lives.

What therapy approach is best for trauma?

There are different types of trauma: physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual. People are more likely to suffer from physical traumas such as heart attacks, strokes, car crashes and so on. In the case of emotional trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can affect anyone without any prior exposure to the event. The most common example is rape or sexual assault, where people are frightened and confused by the experience they have just undergone.

***

People are likely to experience psychological trauma through a traumatic event at some point in their lives. Fortunately, trauma-focused therapy is a form of hypnotherapy and energy healing that can provide relief from the effects of trauma and promote overall healing.

Spiritual trauma can include feelings of isolation, helplessness, and disconnection. Being disconnected from oneself and the people around you.

In all cases, there is a need for therapy to help resolve the trauma and help one find relief from it. However, there is a difference between physical and emotional trauma. Physical trauma will require you to undergo surgery or take medication to restore your health — but psychological trauma can only be resolved through therapy sessions that focus on healing your mind by changing your thoughts and beliefs about yourself (especially your self-image).

In this trauma-focused therapy, you will be free of the fear that you may re-experience a traumatic event again in the future. The goal of therapy is to find a way through the pain that you experienced in order to move forward with life in a more positive manner and with less anxiety about future events.

What is the most effective therapy for childhood trauma?

There is no single answer to this question. There are many different types of therapy, and each is effective in its own way. For example, one type of therapy for trauma is cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT). CBT helps people to see the effects of each traumatic event, and then to make changes to help them get through life better. This can help children and adults cope with challenging situations better.

But there are other forms of therapy that can help people heal from trauma much faster. These include hypnosis, energy healing, past-life regression therapy and various other forms of spiritual healing. All types do the same thing: help you to overcome your negative thoughts and feelings through a process of accepting them, letting go of them, and focusing on the positive things in your life instead. For example, a person who has been through a military conflict may be able to feel calm after hypnosis while others may not be able to because they are still overwhelmed by the event. A trauma therapist can help you through this process by helping you learn how to let go of what happened so that you can focus on what’s at hand right now instead.

Looking at Anxiety

Looking at anxiety can cause a lot of confusion for many people, as the way we are told it exists often isn’t true. Instead of telling you the same things that you’ve probably heard a million times before, I’m going to show you some concepts that have really helped my clients.

Once you understand anxiety this way, it will change the way that you look at anxiety forever.

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is basically part of our natural protection mechanisms. When we are in a situation that presents us with a threat or a danger, our natural systems alert us to this so that we can take action (or not). We are supposed to feel anxiety in certain situations. It is a natural feeling that has helped us and our ancestors to stay alive.

The problems with anxiety happen when this natural protection system becomes over-sensitive or is being fired in situations where there isn’t really a threat or a danger. If you are in a safe place and nothing is threatening you or your safety then there is no logical reason for you to feel anxious. Your subconscious mind and body don’t do logic though. Only your conscious mind deals in logic and this can be where some of the issues start.

Mind's different ways of looking at anxiety
The conscious mind and the subconscious mind have different ways of looking at anxiety

A Conscious Way of Looking at Anxiety

When your conscious mind is looking at anxiety, it has to rationalise and make sense of it. It needs everything to be logical and ordered to understand. Whilst your conscious mind has the power to dive deep into complex understandings in order to find answers, it doesn’t understand how the body and subconscious mind are operating.

You have a feeling in your body (let’s call it anxiety) and your conscious mind wants to know why the feeling is there. It scans the environment looking for threats and dangers but can’t find any. It then gets frustrated and starts scanning backwards and forwards in time looking for what happened to you in the past.

“When did you last feel like this?”

Transderivational Searching

This process is known as….you guessed it…transderivational searching. Your mind scans back to times in the past that could be related to something you are dealing with in the present moment. It finds an event and gathers the information from that event. It then looks at the future potential outcomes related to where you are now and what could possibly happen in order to rationalise the feeling. It then starts to make stories (often with images) about how things could play out for you.

This then continues the initial feeling of anxiety you had and can also make it feel stronger than it initially was. A feeling on its own can’t last for very long. It needs the conscious mind to fuel it with stories in order to keep it going. Well done conscious mind. You’ve now taken a small feeling and turned that molehill into a giant mountain.

A Subconscious and Body Integrated Approach to Anxiety

The subconscious mind and your body are integrated as one. They both work together very well. While the conscious mind likes to pretend it is in charge of everything, it really isn’t. Everything starts in the subconscious and body then the conscious mind jumps in and creates thoughts to match what is already happening.

Your body and subconscious mind notice a feeling in the body and are more like…

“Oh there’s a feeling”

Now your subconscious can be much more abstract when it comes to reasoning and the storing of memories. It is much more based on feelings than logic. It will sometimes connect a bunch of memories together based on how you felt. Imagine a set of children’s blocks standing on top of one another. The bottom block is the first time your body held onto that feeling and each block up is each time it has held onto that feeling or a similar one that it has put in the same box as the initial one.

body stores unresolved feelings
Your body will tend to store unresolved feelings

Why Does The Body Store Past Negative Feelings

Your body will store negative feelings when you have been through an experience and the issues weren’t resolved. Now, it isn’t always necessary for you to release every negative feeling as it happens. Sometimes you have to go away and think about it. Sometimes you need to learn something in order to release the feeling. Sometimes you need to be able to forgive or let go in order for the feeling to release. Sometimes it can be that your mind believes that the feeling is too much for you to handle so it locks it down in the body. Simply allowing the feeling to come up and experiencing it in its entirety can often be enough to release it.

What Are Negative Feelings?

The straightforward answer is that there are no such things as negative feelings. There are just feelings. Once you can grasp this concept, life will become so much easier for you. The negative feelings are often showing you what you need to work on and resolve from your past. If you are going through grief or loss then you need to feel that in its entirety. If you don’t then you’ll end up with a trapped emotion inside of you causing you issues.

People refer to negative feelings or emotions as the ones that they don’t want to feel.

  • Anger
  • Sadness
  • Hurt
  • Jealousy
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Shame
  • Guilt
  • Loss

There is nothing at all wrong with these emotions. In their proper place, they are there to guide us and help us to do what we need to do. They can lead us out of where we are and into where we need to be. When you can love depression as much as you do happiness and joy, life will open so many more doors for you.

where does anxiety come from
All “negative” or “bad” feelings are rooted in the past

How Our Present Anxiety is Rooted In The Past

So you have a feeling inside of you that your mind has labelled as anxiety. This feeling has a birthing point. A time when it was first experienced by you. The unresolved feeling always stays at the same age as when it was created. If you first experienced anxiety at 5, each time that you feel it in the future, you will go back to having the coping mechanisms of a 5-year-old in order to deal with the situation that you are currently in.

Imagine trying to deal with being anxious as a 5-year old. At that age, you have very limited skills and are in no way as skilled as you are now. Yet this is what happens to you every time that you experience anxiety.

Imagine for a moment that you have a brand new computer. When you get it out of the box and start it up everything works beautifully. You install some software onto it to perform certain tasks and these too work really well. Imagine how well that computer would run if you didn’t update the software on it for 5 years. Now imagine not updating it for 20 years, 30 years, 40 years even.

This is how your mind and body are running when it comes to those unresolved emotions. You are literally running without those out of date and buggy programs causing issues in your life. Some issues you will be aware of and some issues you won’t be. Isn’t it about time you gave yourself an upgrade? You’re worth that, right?

Looking at Anxiety Upgrades for Your Body and Mind

In order to receive these upgrades, we have to start looking at anxiety and where it comes from for you. We need to bring the adult self and help the child self to release the old feeling. Whatever it is that needs to be altered for you to release the old programs we will do. We look at what needs to be put into place for you to be able to change how you perceive that feeling in the future.

Remember, there is no such thing as a bad feeling and anxiety in its true form is there to keep us safe. We never look at getting rid of something that is there to keep us safe. We just learn how to use it correctly. Think dialling down that over-sensitive car alarm so that it can tell the difference between a bus going past and someone trying to break into your car.

Looking at Anxiety and How it Could Be Affecting Your Life

Here is a great video for you to watch about various scenarios of how anxiety could be affecting your life. It can really help you to have a different way of looking at anxiety.

Healing and Therapy for PTSD

People who have faced a traumatic or tragic situation in the past usually think they’re fine and moving on from that with no problem at all––until they suddenly wake up in the middle of the night and feel like they are in danger. This could actually be a sign of post-traumatic stress disorder or, simply, PTSD.

shifting energy healing leeds

Contrary to what most people believe in, positive thinking doesn’t really do much in framing your reality. Shifting your energy through energy healing can alter your thoughts and transform your life in the process.

But how is energy healing best explained?

Understanding Energy Healing

The body consists of interconnected systems that even the slightest imbalance can disrupt its function and flow of energy. This imbalance and disruption contribute to negative feelings, thoughts and illness. Through energy healing, the energy flow in your body will be aligned and treat any obstruction that causes you to have ill thoughts and feelings. 

In simple terms, your body will be cleansed of negative energy, which will positively affect your physical, mental and spiritual wellness. Energy healing will impact the way you conduct relationships, handle adversities and changes and connect with people around you, whether you like them or not.

Here are some reasons as to why shifting your energy field is best done through changing your thoughts:

Energy Is Your Thoughts’ Building Block

Whatever belief or notion you’ve had over the course of your life is stored in your chakras as energy. Energy healing balances chakras. When your chakras are aligned, you’ll have fresh perspectives that will affect your thoughts, experiences and beliefs.

Aside from repeating affirmations, also consider these energy healing modalities:

  • Integrated Energy Therapy
  • Psych-K
  • Reiki

These can support manifestation through making a connection with your cellular memory, chakras, and subconscious.

Cords can keep us attached to people in our present and our past. Cord cutting is a useful tool to sever the energetic ties that bind us. Photo by Erwan Hesry on Unsplash

Positive Thoughts about Someone Will Not Cause Karmic Tie Healing

Unconsciously, some people could create cords of attachment that are energetic, which will affect your energy through draining. For as long as that cord has some attachment to you, then your hold on power isn’t full. 

There are people in our lives that can trigger specific thoughts and feelings. Some people trigger positive emotions, like family and close friends. However, there are those that stir chaos from within us, like an old friend who betrayed you or a childhood bully that caused you trauma. If you feel like your energy is drained whenever you think about that person or whenever they are around, going into a three-week cord-cutting meditation might help. 

Cord-cutting is a practice where you recall power through space and time. Through this, any energy that’s not actually yours will finally be released.

The moment you start trying it out, pay attention to whether or not your energy field gets stronger. Reframing your perspective on this person will help with emotional intelligence development. This will bring a positive effect on your relationships and how you connect with other people around you. Energy healing is able to complement this transformation by handling spiritual, physical and emotional bodies.

Conclusion

Energy is an incredibly powerful thing that can affect the overall health of a person, from physical to spiritual. Simply changing one’s thoughts can help shift an energy field. This is because simply thinking positive thoughts on someone won’t heal karmic ties; energy is the building block of thoughts in the first place.

3 signs of depression

Depression can become so overwhelming and debilitating that it can be almost impossible to function. Completing simple, everyday tasks like bathing and eating become too much to bear against the sheer weight of depression, which often feels like a hopeless pit in your stomach or like an elephant is sitting on your chest. 

The worst part about depression is that it doesn’t discriminate. Even if you seem like a person who “has it all” and with everything anyone could want, you can still suffer from crippling despair and sadness, like how healthy people can still find themselves with terminal illnesses. Fortunately, there are many ways to help deal with depression, with hypnotherapy being a practical solution available to anyone who needs it. 

Here are the common causes of depression and how hypnotherapy can help you overcome them:

  1. Feelings of Unworthiness
depression and unworthiness
Depression often leads to feelings of being unworthy and not being good enough.

Feeling like you don’t deserve your good fortune or your dreams and desires often leads to depression. Thanks to the Internet, we are more exposed to other people’s accomplishments, and we pay particularly more attention to those who look like they’re doing much better than we are. As a result, we feel pressured to do more and be more because, as we are, we aren’t enough.

The truth is that even the most revered, beautiful celebrities have suffered from having to look perfect all the time, especially women. Like Rita Hayworth and Ava Gardner, who were renowned for their allure and beauty, well-loved icons have all chosen to live life away from the spotlight because of the sheer pressure of maintaining a perfect façade. Actors and athletes feel the same pressure as well, believing that they need to ‘keep performing’ to continue the charade of constantly feeling happy and ‘having it all.’

However, hypnotherapy can help you address these beliefs by guiding you through your thought process and uncovering why you don’t believe you are worthy enough. By untangling your thought patterns and sifting the negative from the positive, you’ll eventually realise that you are, indeed, deserving of everything you want, even your wildest dreams. By addressing the root of the matter, you can gain the confidence you need to get up and pursue your goals and live the life you’ve always wanted.

  1. Adhering to Other People’s Ideals of Happiness

Until recently, the popular notion of happiness involved having a partner, children, material wealth, and a successful career. However, the path to these is often lined with making choices that sometimes do not make you feel comfortable. As a result, you may ignore your inner thirst for goals like establishing yourself as an interior designer, a music producer, or a football star in favour of more traditional pathways, like getting into corporate finance. After all, that’s what you’ve been told is the key to success, right?

trying to please others depression
Trying to please others means diminishing your own needs and desires.

However, not following your heart’s desire and adhering to society’s ideals of happiness has been proven to make you feel miserable. Many people have reported feeling depressed because they did not pursue the career they knew they were meant for, causing them to suppress their love for things that genuinely make them happy. However, by seeing a hypnotherapist, you can undo the beliefs that made you think that there was no other way to be happy than by following society’s ideals. Working with a professional will help you unpack the thoughts and perspectives that hold you back from what you truly want to do, allowing you to live a life without regrets.

  1. Unhealthy Lifestyles

Regularly consuming junk food and staying sedentary is not only bad for your physical wellbeing, but your mental health as well. Unfortunately, depression can lead you into a vicious cycle, where it becomes too difficult to take care of yourself, so you allow your physical health and hygiene to deteriorate. However, it’s essential to realise that you are always in control of what you eat, think, and do, no matter how impossible it may seem.

What you put into your body directly affects how you feel, and hypnotherapy can help you make healthier choices to improve your overall wellbeing. It can change your views and perspectives, helping you believe that exercising regularly, taking care of yourself, and eating the right foods will allow you to lead a healthy, fulfilling life.

Conclusion

Depression is a widespread phenomenon affecting millions of people worldwide, which means that you likely know a few people who have grappled with it. However, by understanding its typical causes and seeing a hypnotherapist to help you recover, you can clear negative energy and put yourself on the right path to living a life you love.

Healing body trauma therapy Leeds

Most people associate emotional trauma with only mental wounds, believing that it doesn’t manifest physically. However, the reality is that the stress and trauma we carry in our minds often presents themselves in our bodies, even when we don’t realise it. It becomes body trauma, which requires transformational energy healing to address.

Anxiety has been on the rise since the pandemic has wreaked havoc on the world. More people feel overwhelmed and panicked at the seemingly endless amount of negative news on TV and social media. Some have even said that they have started to feel sick due to their distress. As a result, more and more people are experiencing body trauma and are at a loss with addressing it.

Understanding Body Trauma

Feeling upset and scared doesn’t necessarily have to come from situations that directly affect you; mere exposure to traumatic information from the media you consume is often enough to traumatise you. Your body will be wired to anticipate and evade threats constantly, even when there aren’t any immediate ones present. This constant strain on yourself ultimately leads to body trauma. Survivors of accidents, abuse, and other tragic events have even more difficulty processing this, given their already existing trauma.

Humans are programmed to respond to danger in three ways: fight, flight, or freeze. When you experience a traumatic event, your body commits this feeling to memory, along with the defence mechanisms it has set to fight the trauma. These are kept in the chemicals in your body associated with emotions. By storing memories that contain signs of danger, your body can respond more immediately, helping you avoid threatening situations more easily. However, this fight-or-flight energy can get jammed in your body, overwhelming you and preventing you from responding correctly.

Dealing With Body Trauma Through Transformational Energy Healing

Traumatic experiences do not occur gently or slowly; a surge of strong emotions often accompanies them. While it is imperative to process these emotions healthily, such as crying, resting, or even exercising, traumatised people usually cannot act upon them. Thus, the body looks for an alternative way to express this energy, such as flashbacks or bad dreams. It can even manifest physiologically through neck pains, headaches, and other health conditions. It also affects how you think and perceive your surroundings, making you feel inappropriate guilt and causing you to deem harmless situations as dangerous.

Since trauma changes your body and rewires your brain, you are more susceptible to more trauma. For you to address this adequately, you’ll need transformational energy healing, which will help your body reconfigure its defence system. It will work to relax your body’s response and inform you that you are not in danger, so there is no need to be on high alert. We communicate to your body’s consciousness through energy healing, ensuring it receives and comprehends that it is safe and that it should ease its guard. Once your body calms down, it will be much easier to address the mental and emotional parts of trauma, particularly when determining the emotional energies your body consciousness requires to recover and feel well again.

Conclusion 

Pursuing energy healing is a great step towards recovering from body trauma, particularly in an incredibly distressing and upsetting time. By focusing on the physiological aspect of the trauma, it will be more manageable to address the emotional and mental elements, providing you with a holistic healing method.

coaching and therapy for sexual violence

Violence and trauma can leave deep scars on any person. Healing and coping are different for every person, especially when it comes to dealing with experiences related to sexual violence. 

Recovering from sexual violence is complex and can take many forms, as the term “healing” may have a different meaning for every survivor. But one thing’s for sure, when it comes to moving forward, survivors need to learn how to hold space for both their pain and the beauty of their resilience. 

A survivor experiences waves of emotions — often a mixture of different feelings all at once. Some feelings include hopelessness, surrender, heartbreak, and grief. Still, despite the blanket of despair, there is always a stream of love and gratitude that makes its way through the cracks and broken pieces. 

Though getting the latter may be quite challenging, it’s known that self-care practices, transformational energy healing, and coaching balances and centres the survivor’s mind and body, allowing them to find the gems in their innermost spaces and experiences.

One of the things healing and coaching teaches survivors is self-compassion and how it demands to be felt. With that being said, the process of learning self-compassion emerges in an organic and non-linear way, which often tests our patience, faith, and acceptance. 

There are numerous ways to practice self-compassion that integrate the body, mind, and spirit. The whole practice encourages you to focus on the space that you have and forces you to identify the sources of your resilience and remember to connect your core as you tread traumatic waters. 

Some survivors get the help of coaches and transformational energy healing specialists to help them work intentionally with their bodies and minds to breathe in light, self-compassion, and home, all while gravitating towards balance. 

Remembering That Scars are Stronger Than Skin

Clarissa Pinkola Estés, author of “Women Who Run With The Wolves,” said, “It is good to remember that in tensile strength and ability to absorb pressure, a scar is stronger than skin.”

One gets a scar after a wound heals, so this is the perfect analogy of what it is like from healing from sexual violence. When you get hurt, you learn new lessons and take with you the pain and experience that lead you to this moment, making you see your scars as a sign of survival instead of being broken. 

However, many people still think that some wounds may never heal, and the scar will always be there. But it’s also good to note that even if the scar is visible, the scar does not provide additional pain. With coaching and healing, survivors are taught to see scars in this manner and to see scars as a sign of resilience and strength. 

Trauma and Its Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Effects

Most sexual violence survivors don’t only experience physical effects; mental and spiritual consequences are brought along with the trauma. Abuse can undoubtedly leave an impact on a survivor’s health, including chronic stress, depression, low sex drive, fatigue, and are even at high risk for heart attack.

Other obstacles that survivors face are mental and eating disorders, all of which affect the survivor’s quality of life. For this reason, coaching and energy healing can help survivors cope with these effects and find light in surviving the abuse.

Final Thought: Coaching and Energy Healing Remind You That You Are Larger Than Life

Dealing with the wounds and trauma of sexual violence is a long journey that needs constant support. With coaching and transformational energy healing, survivors are encouraged to view themselves as large and powerful, focusing on their survival on incredibly traumatic events. 

In the end, healing is a collaborative effort where the coach and the survivor work together to create a safe space where the individual can grow and, although it may take time, release their wounds’ weight and heaviness.
