Shame and trauma can be deeply entrenched; indoctrination can have us believing that we don’t deserve the support and help of another. An idea seemingly endlessly stigmatized. We are born with the ability to connect to others, but sometimes it is lost, or worse, severed. I know that we desire to be connected. We must first become better attuned to ourselves before we can bridge out to others.
It has been my life’s purpose to reclaim knowledge of how to reconnect; to ourselves, to others, and to our environment. Take our gut/brain connections and nervous system as one of the greatest examples of how vast and intricate our being is. It is the role, within our body, that these structures form an internal monitoring system that is comprised of a complex arrangement of chemical signals. These signals can become negatively and/or falsely activated. When triggered too frequently, as has become more common every day, these signals begin to manifest as panic, anxiety, and/or depression. These are just a few of the many possible effects of an unsustainable lifestyle. Untreated, they often lead to many other negative personal attributes such as self-deception, self-sabotage, and the derailment and/or destruction of personal and professional relationships.
