Childhood wounds can come from many places.
Sometimes they are from the places we usually think of like trauma or abuse but they just as often can come from things like stress in the family as a child, divorce, loss, parents who weren't emotionally mature & even from loving parents who just didn't know how to meet all of our needs.
What's so important about them is that they impact YOU and the way you feel about yourself and your life. They become the thoughts and the feelings that are always rolling around telling us that we aren't enough or no one will love us if we show up as ourselves.
Some of the most common ways they can manifest is...
So if you are working on healing your childhood wounds, let me share a few things I've found to be so helpful in my own healing & also with my clients.
#1 PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR FEELINGS
How you feel when you're triggered is usually a re-enactment of the past. It's your emotions from that original...
Notice lately how much harder it’s been to move ahead in life? The energy of this past month has triggered a lot of Frustration & Rejection in our mindsets and for good reason. It’s trying to get you to look at the bigger picture. It’s telling you to stop getting in your own way. To find new tools, to let yourself be vulnerable and yes, to even ask for help.
Sounds easy but it most definitely isn’t. The problem with finding out our old tools don’t work is that we usually haven’t created new ones so we are left a bit stranded and confused. We know we need to move forward but we have no idea how and the ways we used to trudge ahead no longer work… like at all!
Enter the major Emotion of this part in your Journey… Frustration. Yuck, right? No one wants to feel that when it comes to Love, Family or Money. It is really just the epitome of everything we DON’T want to feel. So let’s re-write that....
There are going to be days that you just can’t get yourself moving. You feel exhausted physically & emotionally. You’re tired of working through things, you’re tired of healing, you just want to lay in bed or quit altogether. No matter how much healing you do these days are bound to happen.
First thing you want to do when you feel this happening is check in with your body on a few key things:
Do you know that feeling when you know some of what you do want, a lot of what you don’t want & yet you still can’t really define what it is you are after? You know you want a career that fuels you, you want to be paid well & you want to work with people you enjoy… but… you still have no idea what that actually looks like?? So Frustrating!
Knowing what we DON’T want is great but it doesn’t really answer that nagging question of “what should I work towards.” It basically just leaves us with empty space and not a lot of guidance on what to create. You can say you don’t want a job that requires you to work overtime but that doesn’t necessarily mean you will be happy working a normal 9-5 job either. It could mean that you actually want to start a non-profit to meet your dreams of helping in the world in a very feet on the ground type of way which is vastly different than settling for a 9-5 hourly job! Those extra...
If you’ve done any type of Energy Work you’ve more than likely run across the concept of past trauma & experiences creating blocks or illness in your present life. But how exactly does this work? How does something you aren’t even thinking about create trouble for you today?
Imagine for example that when you were young there was a moment where you felt like you really needed something that only someone else could provide for you, for instance food or comfort, but because your parents didn’t notice this or didn’t provide it you felt “ashamed” for needing it in the first place. Now, your parents may have just been busy or chose not to give you what you needed but if you didn’t fully process the feeling of being “ashamed” and instead pushed it aside it could become trapped in your energetic body. As a result of trapping it, the emotion of “Shame” and the low frequency it has are now ringing...
