It is hard not to be triggered by what is going on in the world right now. Between the war in Ukraine and the latest Supreme Court ruling in the United States of America, humanity feels like it is near the brink. How can it be that we are moving backward not forwards?
At the start of the week, I recorded my third talk on trauma and healing. It is ironic that now my Uterus is on fire. You might be feeling this pain as well.
Good men are feeling it too the ones without wombs.
Collectively we are feeling the pain of oppression and war against women.
This war is eliminating our rights for health and well-being. When we try to control women’s rights we eliminate humanity’s rights for women are the ones that give birth to the nations and the world.
When I am triggered I feel it in my body in that area that is my reproductive system and you might too! This pain feels like a hot storm that builds and floods the rest of my body.
Waves of uterine contractions pulsate.
My body remembers the trauma and feels it here.
Tears are inevitable and I let them fall. I share with you some soothing that you might find beneficial.
This is my self-care and grounding.
Here is a shortened version of the talk that I recorded outside.
This grounding helps when the waves of pain hit.
My vulnerable heart shares with you in hope that together we can heal ourselves and the world.
Trauma and traumatization will show up in many ways. Sometimes you may feel like you are swimming beneath a frozen lake, a forever mermaid trying to break free.
You might feel like you are in quicksand and sinking fast.
Time might feel like it is moving fast or slowing down.
You may feel like you are slowly dissolving or disappearing.
It can feel like the devil on your chest while sleeping caught between waking and dreaming. This prevents you from moving, screaming and breathing.
Trauma triggers show up like a wave, a flash or a dream that lingers into the day.
It can be a scent, smell or taste that reminds you of your past trauma.
Trauma lives in flesh and bones and becomes a muscle memory of its own.
When you feel like this your system is dysregulated.
There are things that we can do to calm and soothe. Healing is a process and will be different for everyone.
Wherever you are right now come back to how you feel in your body.
Bring your attention to your body and your breathing.
Put your hand on your chest and your abdomen or on your uterus. Breathe into this area.
Feel your own energy radiate and warm.
Dear one you are safe.
At this moment we are safe.
Together we can breathe.
Together we can work together to advocate and heal.
Let the collective healing journey begin.
