How These Tools Work

And, by the way, this is not about getting rid of anything. It is about integration.

In this work I stop resisting and pushing away my pain, fear, anxiety, worry.
In acceptance is transformation.
In acceptance I face what is actually happening.
Then it can stop chasing me and I can tend to what is needed.

This is where the tools are essential and are so effective.
Self-compassion for our suffering.
Mindfulness for becoming aware of the signs of activation and being present with our upset.
Tapping for easing the upset and then perhaps going deeper to the roots of the trigger.

What This Means for You

Trauma (big or little) happens when we were overwhelmed in some way and we did not get the support, or the conditions were not right, for us to fully integrate the experience. The energy of that experience, part of our life force, then gets stuck in the nervous system. These become subconscious triggers later on.

When we show up for ourselves, by tending to our upset in a new way, we are giving our nervous system something it didn’t get originally. This way it can relax and unwind itself.

Triggers, big or small, are like eddies in our nervous system. When they are resolved, that energy is reintegrated back into our life stream, like the dam around an eddy being released. The water is free to flow with the main current again. This means more of you is available …. for yourself, for your life.

For me, it meant I could be more of an adult in all areas of my life. What a relief this has been for me. I could speak more clearly in a business meeting. “Grumpy for no reason” left my emotional background field. I could stay more calm when others were upset. It has been especially profound in how I am in my closest relationships.

Give yourself the gift of more resiliency and ease. Join me on this six week adventure into emotional regulation and integration.
