Dealing with my challenges such as feelings of shame, anxiety, personal expression blocks, nervous system dysregulation, living on fight or flight mode, insecurities, low confidence, self-worth issues led me to a practice of healing from emotional trauma.
I realized trauma is not just traumas with big T; for most of us, it is often invisible, challenging to pinpoint, and not necessarily a one-time event but recurring during the course of our early life when we are most vulnerable, and we carry it into our adulthood.
Trying to fit in, mostly suppressing and not knowing how to express my emotions/thoughts/ideas, and not embracing my different perceptions, not embracing my weirdness was causing me a great deal of anxiety and stress. So I wanted to fix myself quickly to be more social, presentable, and lovable. Well, quick fixing didn’t work, and the journey led me to more acceptance of myself, realizing all the illusions I had about life. It also led me to facing my fears with sensitivity and slowly putting aside learned behaviors that no longer served me.
I had no idea how to process emotions. To navigate the world of emotions was extremely challenging for me. I fully identified with the world of feeling without making the connection to early lived experiences, where and how I learned these and how much sense they make now in my adult life. I felt my emotions deeply and my strategy was to suppress them, leading to overwhelming anxiety and stress. So it was difficult for me to start navigate this world of emotion, thought and start to address it.
With time, I learned to set boundaries, say no, go against the stream, accept emotions that come with it, and use my intuition. Of course, I make mistakes along the way, difficult emotions come, and sometimes I doubt myself. Yet, I know now that my different perception of the world is my strength. It is okay to live off the beaten path, and it doesn’t come without obstacles. It is okay to be different, not to fit into the “being normal” definition.
During the sessions, I primarily work with IFS and EFT techniques. I also incorporate the dream work, ancestral connections and past lives into the healing process if needed.
I support people to live their soul purpose, creating freedom lifestyles, conscious relationships, being their own bosses and setting up their own rules no matter how crazy or boring they seem to the outside world.
We did not come here to work jobs we don’t like just to pay the bills.
