I have been listening to Healing Trauma/PTSD together with Anger & Forgiveness for four weeks and I can honestly say that I am giddy with delight at how my whole sense of safety has increased. I have become much more attuned to the present moment and can now notice and appreciate of the options I have; I feel empowerd, with an easier way of being in the world. It is a feeling of more space for me to realize my path forward.
Some of the trauma experiences have been locked in my body without direct access to the actual memories. However, somehow today, I actually felt a shift viscerally, very physically! Later on, I was able to process my trauma experience with my therapist, in a deeper way than I ever have been able to. For the first time I didn’t have the usual sense of jarring, fear and near loss of consciousness. I feel so GOOD! I feel so safe and alive and jubilant! I am not exaggerating the joy I feel in just being.

Thank you for sharing this. It helps a lot to hear stories like this - not just because it makes us happy (which it does), but because it helps us understand how these immersive, non-linear therapies help heal longstanding trauma in a deep, body-based way that is frequently inaccessible otherwise. We are happy for you and wish you the very best on your wonderful journey of discovery.
