Spiritual Awakening and Healing Trauma
Do you have deep pain or trauma in your past? Have you healed or are you still in the process?
If you’re like most women, the answer is “yes” and “yes” and “yes”.
I too have lots of pain and deep trauma in my past. I have healed a lot of it. And yet, I find that to some extent, it’s a life-long process. There are always more layers to uncover and heal.
The good news is that it gets a lot less painful as you heal more and more and you gain a lot of wisdom, tools and inner resources along the way.
And there’s something about the holidays that always has me reflect on my childhood and how far I have come… and what is yet left to heal.
I knew I turned a major corner in my own journey 16 years ago when I found myself meditating while pregnant with my oldest daughter and realized that I was grateful for all the trauma and all the pain because it made me the wise and compassionate person that I had become.
THAT WAS SO HEALING AND SELF-VALIDATING!
I have to tell you that I was blown away by this week’s straight-talking unedited conversation on WOMEN LIVING PASSIONATELY: Honest Conversations with Women Who Are Making a Difference with Alana Roach, the owner of Explorations of Self Retreats. She is certified in many healing modalities and has been teaching a dynamic, breath centered style of yoga all over the world since 2011.
Alana shared how the yogic lifestyle helped her heal deep childhood trauma and subsequent addiction, transform her life and live her purpose while traveling the world with a successful business, helping others heal and being a great mama to her daughter.
I expected a great conversation with an amazing woman but I found myself connecting with a SOUL SISTER and inspired to share more personally than I have ever shared in an interview.
We talked about our spiritual awakenings, our past traumas, our fears of passing the crap along to our children, and about the biggest gift I recently received as a mother.
This conversation is really raw, real, deep and ultimately, so inspiring! I saw in Alana the immensity of the human spirit to overcome adversity and create something beautiful! And I saw it in myself.
I know you will see it in yourself too!
Just in time for the holidays…
