Meditation Series: Healing Trauma Through Natural Elements – Part 4 – Earth

✨NEW MEDITATION SERIES ON INSIGHT TIMER

⁠This is the 4th & final part of the Healing Trauma Through Natural Elements series. This guided series is centered around healing trauma in a safe & healthy way as we channel earth’s natural elements. Today’s healing element is earth. Earth is about stability, strength & growth. It is here that you’ll find your footing & lay a solid foundation to rebuild your life & step back out into the world. This meditation will utilize visualization & sound healing. ⁠

⁠If you have not completed parts 1-3 of this series, where we focused on Air, Fire & Water as healing elements, I would highly suggest starting there first as these meditations connect to one another in order. ⁠

⁠I hope you enjoyed this trauma healing meditation series. Trauma healing is hard work, I know from personal experience, but you showed up and you did the work and I want you to take a moment to congratulate yourself for starting the healing process and completing this series.⁠

⁠Though these meditations connect to one another in order I would like to remind you that you can repeat these meditations as many times as you’d like. Naturally, there will be an element in this series that resonates more deeply with you than another. Trust that feeling and come back to it and any of the others in this series as many times as is necessary to help guide you on your healing journey.⁠

⁠Thank you for meditating with me! I thoroughly enjoyed creating this series and I can’t wait to create more meditations for you ✨

Meditation Series: Healing Trauma Through Natural Elements – Part 3 – Water

✨ NEW MEDITATION SERIES ON INSIGHT TIMER ✨⁠

⁠This is part 3 of the Healing Trauma Through Natural Elements series. This guided 4-part series is centered around healing trauma in a safe & healthy way as we channel earth’s natural elements. Today’s healing element is water, the protective womb stage of healing. Today you’ll mend & rebuild. You’ll go fully inside of yourself to provide love & protection, to heal & move forward with your life.⁠

⁠I hope these meditations have been helpful for you so far. I know from personal experience that trauma healing can be very triggering. I would suggest moving at your own pace through this series. You may even want to work through a single element multiple times before moving on to the next one. For example, if Air feels incredibly healing for you and you feel it’s helping you safely move through blocked feelings, focus on Air for a while before moving on to Fire. You can repeat these meditations as many times as you’d like. Think about it like watching a movie, every time you watch the same movie you see and pick up on new things you didn’t notice before, meditation is like that too. New feelings and emotions will come up every time you meditate. Allow these feelings and emotions to come up and flow freely. This is your body’s way of releasing trauma and navigating painful feelings and emotions that have been suppressed.  ⁠

⁠This meditation will utilize visualization & sound healing. ⁠

⁠If you have not completed parts 1 & 2, where we focused on Air & Fire as healing elements, I would highly suggest starting there first as these meditations connect to one another in order.  ⁠

⁠I hope you’re enjoying this series. The 4th & final part of this series will be released later this week 🤗

Meditation Series: Healing Trauma Through Natural Elements – Part 2 – Fire

✨ NEW MEDITATION SERIES ON INSIGHT TIMER ✨⁠

This is part 2 of the Healing Trauma Through Natural Elements series. This guided 4-part series is centered around healing trauma in a safe & healthy way as we channel earth’s natural elements. Today’s healing element is fire, where we’ll be free to feel anger & disappointment about our experience, as we focus on healing & clearing space for growth & transformation.⁠

⁠I know trauma healing can be very triggering, but as a trauma survivor myself I know the healing process is integral to moving forward with your life in a healthy way. Shoving it down, bottling it up, and pretending it’s not there will only make matters worse. I know, because I tried that first & it didn’t work. My best advice for you is to use these meditations as a safe space to allow feelings and emotions to come up without judgment or trying to change them. Don’t force them down, let them flow freely. This is your body’s way of releasing trauma, it’s detoxing.  ⁠

⁠This meditation will utilize visualization & sound healing. ⁠

⁠If you have not completed part 1, where we focused on Air as a healing element, I would highly suggest starting there first as these meditations connect to one another in order.  ⁠

⁠I hope you’re enjoying this series. Part 3 will be released early next week 🤗 ⁠

Meditation Series: Healing Trauma Through Natural Elements – Part 1 – Air

✨NEW MEDITATION SERIES✨⁠

⁠I’m so excited to finally put this series out into the world. I had to practice what I preach and overcome my fear to make this dream a reality. You can now find my meditations on Insight Timer 🤗 This has been 5 years in the making & I’m over the moon 🌙 ⁠

⁠Trauma healing is the #1 requested meditation from my clients & followers. I put a lot of love and personal experience into this series and I hope you love it ❤️⁠

⁠Welcome to the Healing Trauma Through Natural Elements series. This is a 4-part guided meditation series that’s centered around healing trauma in a safe & healthy way. Each meditation in this series focuses on healing trauma by channeling earth’s natural elements. ⁠

⁠In Part 1 of this series, we’ll be focusing on Air as a healing element. Air healing is all about silently processing your experience. It’s a moment of suspension, where you’re just trying to make sense of it all. This stage of healing is about nurturing & protecting yourself. It’s about observing your feelings freely without judgment or expectations. I call this the “floating in the air” stage of healing, hence the use of the natural element, air.

⁠This meditation utilizes visualization & sound healing.⁠

⁠I hope you enjoy this series. These meditations are meant to be practiced in order. Come back to them for daily support on your healing journey.⁠ I can’t wait to meditate with you!

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.

Some ways to get started:
▫️ Therapy
▫️ Support groups
▫️ Mindset coaching – That’s me – I can help you ❤️
▫️ Meditating
▫️ Journaling

Healing Trauma Requires Consistency – Try This 6-Week Consistency Challenge

How would you define trauma?

I bet everyone has a slightly, if not drastically, different definition of trauma or opinion of what a truly traumatic experience would be. 

Merriam-Webster defines trauma as; an injury (such as a wound) to living tissue caused by an extrinsic agent; a disordered psychic or behavioral state resulting from severe mental or emotional stress or physical injury; an emotional upset; an agent, force, or mechanism that causes trauma.

I would without a doubt describe what the world is going through as traumatic. I’m familiar with trauma, I’m a survivor myself & I coach my clients through past & present traumatic experiences via mindfulness, meditation, mindset coaching & yoga. 

No matter what your definition might be there’s 1 thing I know for sure; healing, growth & change require consistency. 

A consistent healing practice makes ALL the difference & right now we all could use a dose of consistency in our lives. The world feels like it’s gone mad and it’s hard to grasp or wrap your head around.

So here’s my challenge for you…

1st – Ask yourself what helps you find peace, calm & healing in times that feel overwhelming, painful, or traumatic? Make a list, of let’s say 10-20 things that elicit the above mentioned feelings. It might be therapy, a support group, meditation, going for a walk, taking a bath, journaling, talking to someone you love, the possibilities are endless.

2nd – Commit to incorporating at least 6 of these things into your schedule. Feel free to do more, but don’t do less than 6. I want you to actually put it on your calendar, like you would a meeting for work or an appointment with your doctor. Each week, for 6 weeks, I want you to do at least 1 thing from your list that brings balance, consistency, peace, calm & healing back into your life. 

You’d be surprised how healing a little consistency can be, how “normal” it can make you feel when the world around you is everything but, how much more balanced you’ll feel when you incorporate even 1 thing into your schedule that makes you feel a little less like you’re spiraling & are lacking control over traumatic experiences that are no fault of your own.
