I realized after my post last week that I was choosing the "longer" and more "bumpy" healing process. I realized I have more resources at my fingertips than I was tapping into! It still is slower work compared to others times of healing for me, but more smoother than before. Here are a few things I am doing to allow more grace in the healing process:
I have beefed up my daily meditation again. I have added a meditation for healing and calming blend essential oil at the same time and the meditation for a calm heart with Snatam Kaur's "Servant of Peace" and geranium essential oil. I have also been using Faster EFT (google it or maybe some day I will make a video?) for acute trauma responses.
Also, here is a fun and effective meditation for kids who are healing from trauma. Ironically this is our family daily yoga right now.
This is in addition to holistic self-care, including mighty prayer and feasting in the scriptures. Extra tender and out of the ordinary self-care can also be helpful during times of trauma processing. Be as tender to yourself as you would to a friend going through something similar.
