Heal the root…not the symptoms!

On a scale of 1-10 (1 = little to no stress & 10 = max stress) how stressed are you right now? 

Did you know that roughly 7 in 10 people suffer from stress-related physical & emotional issues! 

COVID, politics, finances, work, relationships, the environment, global unrest, health & wellness, cost of food, access to food & water…these are just a few things that could be affecting your level of stress. It can be incredibly overwhelming, I see you & I feel you.

So here’s what I want to address today – treating the SYMPTOMS of stress/emotional pain vs. the ROOT CAUSE. It has become “normal” to cover up pain & trauma, or shove it down, instead of nurturing & healing the root cause of stress & emotional pain. That might look something like taking medication, numbing it w/ destructive lifestyle choices, or trying to ignore that it exists even though it’s still affecting us in a big way.

Imagine this scenario – There’s a water leak in your house & it’s begun to damage your walls & destroy the paint. Instead of getting to the ROOT of the problem, you decide to buy some pretty wallpaper & cover it up. This is an example of treating the SYMPTOM! The water leak still exists, it was never fixed. So every time it leaks it causes damage to the paint & the wallpaper & whatever you chose to do to cover up what the leak does to the brand new wallpaper. It’s never going to stop causing damage because the leak still exists!

Apply this to whatever root causes are creating stress & emotional pain/trauma for you.

It’s incredibly important that we dedicate time to understand what is causing our emotional/physical stress, pain & trauma. It’s not always a fun process, but it won’t just go away by covering it up with pretty wallpaper or paint. The world is noisy right now, it’s so loud! Take some time to be quiet with yourself, to explore your environment…is it safe, is it nurturing you, is it making you happy? Do you need to make some adjustments? Do you need to fix a leak?

This is the work of true healing. Focus on the root, not just the symptom.
