We ALL survive trauma.

B. Kliban was right. (see below)Klibanhell

No of us reaches adulthood unscathed. There are things that happened that we wish hadn’t; there are things we wish had happened that didn’t. So much is out of our control, and, especially when we’re young, beyond our comprehension.

And throughout our lives, we suffer wounds—physical, mental, emotional, & spiritual. We all have times when we need to recover from the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. REAL health, whole-person health, comes from allowing ourselves to take the time and space needed to process these events.

This can’t happen only at the intellectual level. Our bodies respond beyond the control of our higher brain functions. So, the work is to heal at all levels, to FEEL the pain and move through it.

So. How do we do this?……..

  1. Yes, most of us have had trauma in their life.

    I like the way you said that real health comes from “allowing ourselves to take the time and space needed to process these events.”

    My childhood was not a usual one and I have done a lot of work on resolving the wounds from my past and was lucky to recently having a great counsellor.

    Tara Brach’s Audios (they are free) help me a lot to be accepting and compassionate with myself.
