Firstly HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
What a freaking crazy year its been.
I always like to spend the final weeks of December reviewing and reflecting on my challenges and achievements, and every year things seem to get more amazing.
Christmas time always seems to be a time to look back an notice how we want things to be for the year to come. Its so important to take care of our hearts at this time of year. The poor darlings can take a beating in so many ways!
I wonder how this year has been for you?
What are you going to consciously create for next year?
If you're like me, there are probably a dozen or more major milestones you can identify where it seems your entire identity shifted and leveled up... whether because of an 'energetic squeeze' through adversity, or a blissful awakening to higher realms of understanding. For me definitely been a lot of both!
The squeeze and expansion thing is part of being human though isn't it?
A trauma specialist that I follow talks about a thing called 'post traumatic growth' or PTG. It's the type of personal development and spiritual evolution that happens on the back of a traumatic or struggle or major life crisis... you know, when you are squeezed and pushed and sort of forced to grow as a person as a result of adversity.
Now I'm not wishing trauma, stress or suffering on anyone, and it is absolutely NOT necessary to have horrible adverse events in order to grow and evolve... NO NO NO!
It's just that PTG is something I'm really familiar with... and have gotten really good at!
I can assure you I would rather not to have had the trauma and stress because it has certainly taken its toll of course... bouncing back better than before has taken a huge amount of time, trial and error, education, experimentation, building a rock solid life-skills-set and a collection of powerful tools, falling down, picking myself back up again.
At times I wanted to quit and just wallow in my misery.
The thing is, trauma isn't necessarily a single BIG thing that hits us like a freight train and flattens us.
>>> listen to this short audio to understand more about big and little traumas
Trauma can be the consistent and persistent stress of cumulative mis-alignment with our authentic self, the denial of our dreams, the whittling down of our energy reserves from daily physical pain, the nagging inner doubts we listen to on a loop at night, or the relentless criticism from a parent or partner.
In fact its these 'little traumas' that are harder to deal with and it seems a bi-product of a society skewed towards consumerism and externalisation.
I am noticing that the world at large is struggling, that we're facing far more disharmony as a society than ever before, and that we as individuals are riding ever increasingly huge and rapid waves of change.
The nature of humans is to resist change... this causes 'little trauma' too.
Our resistance to change (to growth) causes stress and trauma to become lodged in our energy system, and then to manifest as dis-ease in our mind and body.
We can either go with it, or try to stay the same! (which by the way is not possible... because change is inevitable remember?!)
When we resist changing our beliefs, our values, our behaviours, our lifestyle... those things that are now out of alignment with the person we are becoming, we force a kind of inner trauma on ourselves... stress happens... pain happens.
From experience I can tell you that this stress is like a boil waiting to burst. the more you leave it, ignore it, deny it, the more painful and inflamed it becomes until it bursts! That's what we call a healing crisis AND ITS UGLY!
I figure, if we must have trauma, adverse events, struggles and strife in life, why not make the most of those and come out of it better than before;
generally better than we were before
This is exactly WHY I do what I do... I've worked out HOW TO USE my trauma and stress as a launching pad to better myself!
Yep sure, I did it the hard way... I resisted change and the energy patterns of my trauma caused illness.
But here's the kicker... because I have done the groundwork and learned how to be skillful, how to leverage pain, struggle and suffering to accelerate personal growth, spiritual evolution and raise the frequency of life to new heights of awesome...
YOU DON'T HAVE TO WASTE TIME, EFFORT or MONEY like I did. You can SHORTCUT the process of beautiful, graceful, enlightening personal evolution on the back of my efforts!
It makes my heart sing to watch the brilliance of the light that shines through the cracks and scars of pain in those I work with.
It makes my own struggle WORTH EVERYTHING to see how my clients lift out of the agony of emotional turmoil, chronic pain and exhausting struggle... and in such an amazingly short time!
I notice in my clients that it is not always the pain of an event that causes the stress and trauma to get stuck in their energy system.
In most cases, it is the misalignment between their true, authentic and eternal selves, and... its the gap between the amazing, limitless, light-filled beings that they truly and the reality of the life they are currently living which seems to result in inner conflict and turmoil.
So... I'm scheduling my 2018 calendar of Free Online Training, Workshops, Energy Coaching and a Energy Elevation Immersion Retreat in a secret location (oooh I can't WAIT for this one) with this in mind.
2018 is the year to FIND OUT WHO YOU REALLY ARE underneath the weight of stress, trauma and struggle and let your light out! I want you to SHINE out of every crack and crevice, to illuminate your soul with fresh aliveness and break free of the limits you think you have!
And the transformational processes will be FULLY LEVERAGED for greatest impact in as short a time-frame as possible!
This is my heartfelt Christmas wish for you - I know how it feels to fly, and I want you to feel it too.
So... I ask again...
What do you want for yourself in 2018?
What kind of life are you going to consciously create from now on?
What dreams have you been holding off because of trauma, stress, anxiety, fear or pain?
Are you ready, willing and open to transforming your current reality into something amazing?
Are you ready to commit, 100% to doing the work to shine out and never look back (unless its to see how freaking far you've come in such a short time!)?
You can choose!
You get to CHOOSE to release the past from your mind/body/energy, and CREATE the life you want!
I can't wait for 2018 to kick off. Its going to be a game changer!
