Energy Healing Accelerated My Trauma Recovery

Updated: Feb 17

Many people have noticed that I am now a Certified Energy Practitioner. You may have recently seen my new page on my website called Certified Energy Healing where I offer distance energy healing sessions. I've been getting inquiries about my new energy healing services. This is such an incredibly exciting time! I am thrilled to provide sacred space to people who are ready to experience a major acceleration in their life, health, and trauma recovery. Today's blog post is about my energy healing journey. It started in the spring of 2021. I was in school for Certified Trauma Recovery Coaching. My school required each student to compile a "self-care list" of who we could go to for emotional support. Being safe, practicing self-care, and having emotional support by a trauma-informed professional is vital. Looking back, I am thankful that I amplified my self-care practices, including pure essential oils, energy healing, journaling, spending time in nature, watching comedies, gentle stretches, listening to calm music, herbal remedies, plus more. Based on talk therapy not being effective, nor helpful for me, I opted for holistic modalities. That is a whole other story in and of itself. Where therapy had failed, my experience with energy healing has improved my life by leaps and bounds. In my case, I prefer holistic modalities. It is in alignment to me, my life, and my daily practices. Natural options have been extremely effective and beneficial for me. Holistic modalities saved my life 12 years ago when I was on death's doorstep. I have not only survived, but now I am thriving. For this, I am eternally grateful. If you want to read the full story, check out my book, Soul Cry: Releasing & Healing the Wounds of Trauma. If you have suffered abuse or trauma, you know the struggle firsthand. The trauma recovery is not simple, nor quick. Yet, there is value in doing the grief and trauma work. It can be the brilliant answer you have been hoping for. For some trauma survivors, traditional therapy and counseling can be a good place to start. However, it may or may not be successful for you. I've coached plenty of survivors who shared horrifying experiences of toxic therapists who re-traumatized them. I have experienced it more times than I ever fathomed. Even if talk therapy is an ideal fit for you, it doesn't necessarily mean that it will be an ideal match in six months, one year, ten years, or in your future. What I have come to understand is that there comes a time when talking about our past abuse no longer benefits us. After talking, talking, and talking about the insidious trauma, we discover that talking about it is holding us back. We now see that rehashing abuse is harming us and draining us. It is exhausting our body, mind, and soul. Simply stated, we may feel as if discussing our traumatic events is now an insult to our heart and soul. That is exactly what I had experienced last year. This is a major reason why I am not creating new videos on my YouTube channel. It's not in alignment to who I am today and where I am now in my life.

Are you having a hard time in your trauma recovery? When something doesn't work, the wisest choice is to do something new. To consider alternatives. To be willing to investigate natural wellness practices. To leave your comfort zone.

"Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered you will never grow." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Instead of spinning in circles on a hamster wheel, doesn't it make logical sense to try something new? To stretch ourselves. To expand our horizons. To live, learn, and grow. Like a chrysalis, we are not meant to stay inside a dark cocoon forever. We were created to grab our wings, leave the cocoon, and to soar high. In the spring of 2021, I decided to add energy healing to my self-care list. One of my friends who I had known for over ten years had been working as a Certified Energy Practitioner at a spa. She repeatedly invited me to try energy healing. After pondering my options, I took a leap of faith. I scheduled my appointment, and it was the most eye-opening, positive experience. During my first energy healing session, I admit that I felt a bit intimidated. I didn't know what to expect. I never anticipated that my deceased mother's spirit would come through with a divine message. I know for some of you, this may sound "woo woo" or like "stranger things." If this is something new for you, try to keep a nonjudgmental opened mind.

Calmly, my practitioner stated, "Your mother's soul has a message for you. She is here. She said that despite the horrific experiences you had with her, she loves you."

Tears rolled down my cheeks. Tears of deep pain. Tears of relief. Tears of connecting to my deceased mother and her spirit. Tears to make peace with my mom's soul. Happy tears of knowing that I was on the road to my trauma recovery.

I don't have guilt about going no contact with my narcissistic mother in 2018. I had accepted that our relationship was toxic. I accepted that she had unhealed trauma wounds. I accepted that I couldn't change her, nor our intergenerational trauma. As for healing ancestral trauma, that is a whole other story and topic for another day. By the way, we do have the ability and power to heal our ancestral lineage.

For me, coming to acceptance led me to healing my mother wound. It led me to choose a higher path. It forced me outside my comfort zone. It shifted my life, my relationships, and my own healing journey in ways that have ultimately changed me and my perception about parental abuse, family abuse, and traumatic family experiences. My mother and I have made peace with one another. My soul is well.

It's very normal and common to have an emotional, physical, and/or spiritual experience during an energy healing session. Face-to-face sessions and remotely. Energy is not dictated by time or distance. That is what is so awesome about energy healing. However, just because you haven't had the same experience as me doesn't mean that it's not real. For me and millions of others, energy healing is real. What takes place during energy healing is enlightening, powerful, and it can transform you. Obviously, energy healing can be unique and personal. What I experience and what you experience can be different. Those who are empaths, Highly Sensitive People, Lightworkers, and very intuitive may encounter a spiritual experience during energy healing. I am not referring to organized religion. A spiritual awakening and receiving a spiritual message have nothing to do with religion. Energy healing is not affiliated with organized religion. It is a spiritual, safe, holistic practice. People from all walks of life and with all types of beliefs seek energy healing. They do so because they are educated, aware, and ready for the transformative shift in their life; physically, emotionally, spiritually, relationally, and financially. Energy healing can accelerate your own trauma recovery. During an energy healing session, a client may experience a wide range of sensations. They may feel hot or cold. They may have tingling sensations run through their body. They may cry, laugh, or release a wide range of human emotions. It's all good! From the spring 2021 through the winter of 2021, I had energy healing sessions once a month. I invested in my own trauma recovery, and I am grateful for doing so. Energy healing did for me in a few sessions what years of therapy failed to do - help me heal from traumatic experiences and to go from barely surviving to fully thriving. It's by far the most effective holistic modality that has been successful for me.

Energy healing has accelerated my trauma recovery. It has been the biggest, most powerful gamechanger in my life. I only have praises for energy healing.

Here's My Positive Results: Energy healing has helped me to process and heal my child abuse, narcissistic abuse, sibling abuse, sexual abuse, and toxic family enmeshment. It has assisted me to release my old beliefs that don't align to me now. It has removed energetic blocks and imbalances inside of my body. It has reduced my physical pain and inflammation. It has increased my spiritual growth, intuition, life purpose, and tapping into my soul mission of why I am here on earth now. Most importantly, receiving energy healing as a client has opened up my eyes to better understanding energy. Energy healing is a holistic modality that can restore and balance the flow of energy in your body.

One fact about our healing journey is that it goes far beyond our physical, emotional, and mental health. A significant factor involved with healing is our spiritual and energetic health. Energy healing incorporate the body, mind, soul connection.

Healing trauma is comparable to a garden. It needs to be tended to. For weeds to be pulled out. Like a lotus flower, you can sprout through the soil, reaching up through the dark water towards the sunlight, stretching to the surface where you will beautifully bloom.

Certified Energy Healing Practitioner

In July 2021, I pursued local training to become certified for the first level of energy healing. Afterwards, I became certified as an Energy Healing Practitioner. It was very exciting! Due to being in school for Certified Trauma Recovery Coaching and having a large amount of work to complete for my certification, I spent the rest of 2021 devoted towards this endeavor. Then in September 2021, after graduating from school and passing my certification exam, I started my Certified Trauma Recovery Coaching business. Certified Energy Healing sessions are nothing like Certified Trauma Recovery Coaching sessions. They both have incredible value and healing components. However, they are very different approaches. To learn more about Certified Trauma Recovery Coaching, visit my page. I had a lot on my plate during this busy season of my life. There was very much to juggle as I do wear many different hats. I am a wife, mother, author, YouTuber, blogger, advocate, Certified Trauma Recovery Coach, Book Coach, Life Coach, and a Certified Energy Practitioner. As I look back, it makes logical sense that I had to pace myself and my businesses. In January 2022, my original energy practitioner had quit working at the spa. She decided to start her own business. However, she didn't have a brick-and-mortar building. She asked me if I'd be open to distance energy healing sessions. While I hadn't done that before, I decided to go for it. Once again, I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone to try something new.

For the year of 2022, I had consistent remote energy healing sessions. To my surprise, it was even better compared to face-to-face sessions. My powerful distance energy healing experiences blew me away. Wow! Just WOW!!! I think what shocked me the most was that my energy practitioner knew things about me that I had never told her. She was very intuitive and an expert at energy healing. Many times, during my distance energy healing sessions, I would see colorful images, feel sensations on my body, have a release (energetic blocks were removed), sense guardian angels were in my presence, feel strong emotions, have peace of mind, and intuitively receive spiritual downloads of messages. How very remarkable that my practitioner had very similar messages, visions, and experiences as myself. Most importantly, I was in awe of how distance energy healing had accelerated my personal growth, my spiritual transformation, and accelerated my trauma recovery. When my practitioner would call me on the phone to discuss the messages that came through, they were identical to what messages came through for me. It's like we were in sync. We made a divine energetic connection. It was on the physical realm and on another realm beyond our 3D world. It was amazing progress for me.

Self-Energy Healing is Powerful Self-Care

In November 2022, I was scheduled for oral surgery. Right away, I dreaded it because I am prone to getting dry socket after each oral surgery. I contacted my energy practitioner to have a distance session before my surgery. I had high hopes that this time around, my oral surgery would be a much better experience compared to my past.

During my chat with my energy practitioner, she suggested that I start practicing self-energy healing. As a Certified Energy Practitioner, I have the ability to heal my own self. I use a full body hands on approach. Basically, it's laying my hands on specific areas of my body, removing imbalances and dense energy, and focusing on each of my seven chakras.

While I had done self-energy healing prior to this, it wasn't consistent. Starting two weeks before my oral surgery, I began practicing self-energy healing. I was very consistent. I practiced this energy healing on myself for a solid six weeks. Low and behold, my life dramatically changed for the better.

Here's a few positive benefits of my self-energy healing practices:

  • More peace of mind, clarity, & focus.

  • Reduced anxiety.

  • Calmer central nervous system.

  • Less triggers, flashbacks, & CPTSD symptoms.

  • I felt lighter, joyful, & empowered.

  • Zero physical pain during my oral surgery.

  • An increase in my intuitive hits & spiritual growth.

  • More compassion towards myself & others.

  • A softer heart & a stronger connection to myself.

  • Major transformations in every facet of my life.

  • New perspectives & wisdom about my trauma.

  • The ability to transmute & surrender people, places, & things that didn't align to me, my life, & my energy.

In the beginning of January 2023, I was ready to shift to the next level of energy healing. I took a local class to become a Certified Energy Healing Practitioner, level 2. It was such a remarkable, positive experience for me.

The most profound experience as a Certified Energy Healing Practitioner is observing positive improvements in my clients. One of my original clients who had worked with me for 1 1/2 years for Certified Trauma Recovery Coach, had recently transitioned to working with me for her distance energy healing sessions. In only two distance energy healing sessions, my client experienced a remarkable shift in her own life, health, and trauma recovery. She stated, "I feel more tranquil, calmer, and in the present moment. I am no longer spinning like a hamster on the wheel. Instead, I'm stepping into my spiritual gifts, life purpose, and I am recovering. I am healing and I feel so happy!"

YAY! I am doing a happy victory dance for my client. This is positive progress for her. It is an honor to be part of her healing journey.

Those Who are Willing to Learn Life Lessons Can Heal Trauma

Have you opened your mind to the possibility of healing your trauma? The first step is to release a victim mindset. For only negativity and obstacles can manifest from that toxic belief system. I refer to this as 'sink'n think'n. While it's common for your inner critic to rear it's ugly head, the only person who can change it is YOU. Start to build awareness about what you silently think, what you speak, how you communicate to others, and your belief systems.

Here's an example: If you repeatedly think, "I am unworthy and I don't deserve happiness," you will continue to manifest this negative belief into your physical life. You will keep feeling unworthy and not deserving of happiness. Dear Survivor, please be gentle with yourself. Start creating positive thoughts, words, and beliefs. Learn to take back your personal power. Set clear boundaries. Consider distance energy healing sessions to release these unhealthy patterns and imbalances. Energy Healing & Awesome Shifts

Five years ago, I experienced an awesome shift. I started to see things in a new light. Rather than question why something happened to me, I began asking, "How might I learn and grow from this?" Talk about positive growth and transformations! When you are willing to learn valuable life lessons, you have the innate ability to grow and accelerate your healing.

Just because you may have known me in the past, it doesn't mean that you know the person who I am now. A lot can happen in five, ten, and twenty years. I’ve made positive changes over my past decade. Major shifts, wisdom, and life lessons have transformed me from the inside out. I am proud of how much I've overcome. I am excited for who I am now.

Whether we had been friends, acquaintances, relatives, or strangers in the past, the bottom line is this: I’m in a brand-new season of life. I have changed. I have intentionally chosen:

· Gratitude over regret

· Hope over despair

· Joy over sorrow

· Faith over doubt

· Peace over conflict

· Authenticity over hypocrisy

· Boundaries over people-pleasing

· Wisdom over confusion

· Forgiveness over grudges

· Positive energy over negative energy

· Becoming better over being bitter

· Compassion over judgement

· Kindness over contempt

· Divine love over hatefulness

If you desire positive improvements in your life, health, relationships, career, finances, and the world around you, it starts with YOU. The only way to reap the sweet rewards is to practice being the positive change. "This is the way of peace: Overcome evil with good, falsehood with truth, and hatred with love." ~ Peace Pilgrim

While you are not responsible for the abuse and trauma that you've experienced, you are responsible for your own trauma recovery. Healing is choice. Taking the higher path is a choice. Choosing light over darkness is a choice. Choosing compassion over conflicts is a choice. Choosing to get along with others versus always having to have the last word is a choice. What are you choosing for your life?

"The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart. The most powerful weapon you can be is an instrument of peace." ~ Carlos Santana

Trauma is trapped energy and emotional baggage inside of your body. It deeply impacts every facet of your life. This includes, your mental health, your emotional well-being, your physical health, your brain health, your relationships, your ability to function, your central nervous system, your finances, your life purpose, plus so much more.

Today, choose to be an instrument of love and peace. Invest in your trauma recovery. Look outside the box. Be open to commit to your healing process. Be willing and ready for change.

"Nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you do not belong." ~ Author unknown

The beauty of the trauma recovery is that there are countless pathways. There is not a one-size-fits-all-approach. There's so much more involved with healing beyond talk therapy and traditional counseling. I personally and professionally believe that certified energy healing is a magnificent gamechanger. It has positively changed my life for the better and it can change your life for the better, too.
