Your Body Remembers Your Traumas
Growing up I could never understand why I only had a few memories from my childhood. As I grew older, I started to suffer various symptoms that wouldn't go away and often times got worse. Various trips to doctors and specialists would provide temporary relief but never get to the bottom of why I was suffering with them in the first place.
As most people do, I started to ignore them. I believed they were things I would have to put up with. That all the symptoms I was living with, were just a result of the way I'd been made.
I now know that these were the soft whispers of my body to make peace with events that had happened in my past. Because with every traumatic event that I experienced, the emotional impact had been registered in my body. Some of these events had been so disturbing that I'd actually blanked them out of my conscious awareness. And as I ignored what was happening in my body, my body decided to get my attention.
One morning I woke up in excruciating pain. It was like my body was being attacked by an army of swords. For over 2 years, I couldn't walk properly and I was relying on high dosage painkillers to numb some of the pain. The Specialists I consulted advised that surgery was the only solution.
I decided to search for another option. I found it and after 5 days I was walking without pain and the drugs were in the bin.
This started an obsession to discover the connection between the symptoms I was experiencing and the impact of past events. It wasn't the most pleasant experience uncovering these, yet I'm glad I stuck with it.
Now my passion is to help people to reconnect to their greatest source of wisdom - their body.
I believe that once you do this, it starts a journey of discovery supporting true holistic healing because it involves your body, mind and spirit.
That's a beautiful place to be.
