Meditation + Trauma Healing

A few weeks ago I stepped outside my comfort zone to share a piece of myself I thought I’d never share. ⁠

⁠When I decided to create meditations for @insighttimer I knew I wanted them to reflect the benefits meditation brought to my life, which has been many. ⁠

⁠I knew I wanted them to provide tools for trauma survivors, for it was trauma healing meditations that brought me to meditation, to begin with. ⁠

⁠Like so many people, maybe even you, I’ve suffered many traumas in my life. Admittedly, I chose unhealthy ways to cope with trauma starting at a young age. Why don’t we learn how to cope with difficult thoughts & feelings in school? In my opinion, this is a much-needed curriculum for most people, all over the world. Don’t get me started, I could talk about this for days, but I’ll spare you 😉⁠

⁠Meditation was an invaluable healing tool for me. It was something I needed & I didn’t even know it. When I realized I needed it I fought it. Was meditation too hippy-dippy?⁠ NO! It was everything I needed! 

Meditation can help you process trauma in so many healthy ways, I’d like to share how it helped me in hopes that it could help you too 😘⁠

⁠🌙 It normalized my trauma. Surviving trauma can feel lonely & alienating. It can cause you to isolate, because you may feel like no one understands you or what you’ve been through, but you are not alone.⁠

⁠🌙 It’s a support group when you’re not ready for a real support group. It’s a stepping stone during a period of healing when you just want to be alone as you process your feelings.⁠

⁠🌙 Builds healthy coping techniques – Meditation itself is a healthy coping technique, but a lot of meditations also provide breathing exercises, body scanning, journal writing prompts & more.

🌙 Builds resilience – Nothing helped me bounce back from difficult experiences, thoughts & feelings like meditation & the more I meditate the more resilient I become. 

🌙 Clarity & Meaning – Healing meditations helped me make sense of feelings & emotions, which made them easier to deal with & less frequent. It also gave meaning to my experience & inspired me to help others who were in need.

Happy healing fellow trauma survivors 😘🙌🏽❤️
