This is the most catalytic and potent time for doing this work.
Every day, we hear from women that they're taking medication for anxiety, self-medicating with food, weed, or wine and/or feeling completely exhausted from morning to night. Recently, so much collective and intergenerational trauma has been triggered, and we are all doing our best, using what we know to get through the day.
There's a better way. We can experience a huge transformational opportunity that's being catalyzed right now. An opportunity to heal collective, intergenerational, and personal trauma...
So that we can THRIVE as powerful women, instead of suffering because we are powerful. What we used to tolerate collectively and personally has become intolerable, creating a catalytic opportunity we cannot afford to miss.
The trauma material that's up right now collectively and personally, urges us to uncover and dive into deeper layers of healing.
Our lives and our world will be shaped by whether we take this opportunity to heal the traumas of patriarchy, racism, and other generational, collective, and personal traumas that have been keeping us and the world in the state of survival for too long.
Knowing the profound shifts that trauma healing can create in just one generation gives me hope. Considering the possibility that this opportunity can be missed makes me shudder...
How much LOUDER does the invitation to heal ourselves and the world have to get??
We cannot afford to live in SURVIVAL anymore.
The price is too high. The key feature of living in survival is living in a constant state of Fight, Flight or Freeze. And it costs lives. Lives lost to the reactivity the state of survival creates – in a lethal combination with racism has been responsible for Black lives lost to police brutality, lives cut short by chronic stress and associated illness, lives not fully lived, and dreams not realized.
