How Trauma is Far More Common Than You Might Think

     "Trauma is a fact of life. It does not, however, have to be a life sentence. Not only can trauma be healed, but with appropriate guidance and support, it can be transformative."  ~ Peter Levine, PhD, Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma 

      We usually associate trauma with a major life event - the traumatic loss of a loved one, a traumatic accident that causes physical injury, or a traumatic divorce, etc. But in fact we are being traumatized every day. Sound like an exaggeration?  Consider this. Every single day on TV, the internet, and through social media we are being terrorized with a barrage of fearful messages. This produces trauma. We've become so desensitized to it that we may not even recognize what it's doing to us.

     Those who seek to control others know that traumatizing them with fear is very effective. Because people who are traumatized become more suggestible, which makes it easier for them to be manipulated and controlled. However, what is far more powerful than fear is love and compassion. Love and compassion are the antidote to fear, the energy medicine to heal your spirit and your heart from trauma.

     Here are some ways to stop the fear trauma and start the healing:

1. Stop watching mainstream news sources! Instead, seek out what inspires. Put posts from FB pages that have positive and healing messages at the top of your news feed.  Here's a good one: TheGoodNewsNetwork

2. Instead of being anti-something, be pro-something that espouses love, compassion, kindness and caring. Rather than allowing your energy to be drained and manipulated into supporting a fear-based person or cause, heal your heart by using your energy for good, to expand love and kindness in the world.

3. Heal your spirit by spending as much time as possible out-of-doors, where you can hear the whispers of your own soul, away from all the fearful messages. Being in nature synchronizes energetic rhythms. This synchrony balances biological rhythms, sharpens focus, enhances creativity and heightens present-moment awareness. These mind-body-spirit, health-enhancing effects of being in nature are well-documented.

     Here is a video I made of one of my favorite places to heal and write, but you don't have to go any further than outside your own door. Any place in nature is healing.
