-Joann



Healing from childhood trauma is a courageous and transformative journey that requires patience, self-compassion, and a commitment to self-discovery. As a trauma coach/Soul Integration Coach, my goal is to provide you with a roadmap to guide you through the process of healing, making it accessible and understandable. Guide you through the integration process of integrating all aspects of yourself so you can thrive in this lifetime. I am not saying that the work is going to be easy, but that it will be worth it. It will support your wakening to your own consciousness and unconscious behaviors.


Understanding Childhood Trauma: Childhood trauma can manifest in various forms, including physical, mental, emotional, or sexual abuse, neglect, or witnessing domestic violence.


These experiences can leave so many lasting trauma imprints on an individual's mental, emotional, and physical well-being, impacting relationships, self-esteem, and overall life satisfaction. In fact the body itself can store these imprints through life times. I found this to be true in my experiences through the years of my own healing journey, as I was clearing the imprinting from long ago. It helped me better understand my childhood, and now adult life.


Let's dive into how embarking the healing journey actually can help you...


Here are key points to consider as you begin:

1.    Acknowledge the Pain that is present:

The first step is acknowledging and validating your experiences. Understand that it's okay to feel the pain associated with childhood trauma. Acknowledgment is the foundation for healing.

2.    Seek Professional Support:

Consider reaching out to a mental health professional, spiritual coach, energy healing practitioner or trauma coach or RTT Hypnotherapist. They can provide guidance, support, and tools tailored to your unique needs. You want to seek someone who can not only listen but, will give you the tools for success so you can be your own medicine along the journey.

3.    Build a Support System around you:

Surround yourself with a supportive network of friends, family, or support groups. Sharing your journey with others who understand can provide validation and encouragement.

4.    Practice Self-Compassion and self care when you need to:

Cultivate self-compassion by treating yourself with kindness and understanding. Recognize that healing is a process, and it's okay to have moments of vulnerability.

Be kind to yourself.

Nourish with foods and water.

Love yourself how you know best and have grace when you can only do what you have energy to do for that moment.

Write letters often to yourself about what you expect from yourself and what you want to see in your life. I personally love script writing. It helps me dream up some juicy stuff!

Validate the trauma you received and that you are normal feeling what you are feeling!

Be loving and kind.

Be graceful and easy with yourself. You may find as you embark on this journey that you will want to be in solitude and that is normal and part of the process.

5.    Explore Mind-Body Techniques:

Engage in mind-body practices such as meditation, yoga, or deep-breathing exercises. These techniques can help regulate the nervous system and create a sense of safety.

Sometimes a good cry or challenging workout helps me get through the most difficult of situations. Tap into yourself intuitively.

6.    Educate Yourself:

Take the time to educate yourself about trauma and its effects. Understanding the impact of childhood trauma can empower you to navigate the healing journey more effectively.

Learn to process and move the energy through the body.

Learn to journal and letter write.

Burning rituals are also great after pouring your heart and soul out in a letter. Then blessing all people involved.

Get into support circles/soul tribe alignment and make friends with people are committed to growth.

7.    Set Boundaries:

Establish and enforce healthy boundaries in all of your relationships.

Learning to communicate your needs and prioritize your well-being is crucial for healing.

Be authentic and kind.

8.    Journaling and Self-Reflection:

Journaling allows you to express your thoughts and emotions in a safe space. Regular self-reflection can deepen your understanding of your experiences and aid in the healing process.

Journal emotions

Letter writing- There were many times I was so full of rage at a parent or the abuser. I wrote letters letting the person know how I felt. What I felt and why I felt it. I allowed the emotions to flow through me. One time I wrote 5 letters to the same person. I didn’t give the letters to the person, I ripped them up and asked God to bless me and the person. Start envisioning how you want the relationship to look. Feel into that. Sometimes, it means taking long periods of time from the person. That is okay too. Be easy with yourself.

9.    Embrace Creativity:

Engage in creative outlets such as arts, playing instruments, painting, walking in nature, creating something of nature. Expressing yourself creatively can be a powerful way to release emotions and foster healing.

Music

10. Celebrate Progress, No Matter How Small:

Recognize and celebrate your achievements, no matter how small. Healing is a journey of progress, and acknowledging your growth reinforces your resilience.

Conclusion: Healing from childhood trauma is a transformative process that involves self-discovery, self-compassion, and a commitment to well-being. Remember, you are not alone on this journey, and there is support available. By taking these steps, you are laying the foundation for a life of increased resilience, empowerment, and authentic connection.


Embrace the process, be patient with yourself, and know that healing is possible.


Embarking on the path to healing childhood trauma requires a holistic approach that addresses the mind, emotions, and physical body.


As an expert in holistic therapies, I'm here to guide you through practical tools and techniques rooted in mindfulness, emotional well-being, and somatic healing. I want you to walk away with tools to stay empowered.


Hustle and Grace in the same space!
