I have worked with many people who have experienced trauma and I have sought out and learned many modalities and skills to help people heal. I have also used them on myself to heal from the traumas I have personally experienced. I believe that trauma is at the root of many emotional/mental health and relationship issues that people face.
Leading experts in healing trauma agree that one must address the body to heal trauma – that it cannot be healed by talk therapy alone. Our experiences, memories, and especially trauma are held in the body and the body must be involved in the healing process. The body holds so much knowledge that we can use to heal ourselves, and Soul Lightening Acupressure honors that knowledge. Often the body’s symptoms – pain, illness, tightness, recurring injuries – are actually signals guiding us to areas that need healing – areas where our energy is congested and not flowing. Through using the acupressure points in Soul Lightening Acupressure we can encourage a clearer and stronger flow of energy through our physical, emotional, and energetic body. Creating a clearer flow of energy can clarify what we are feeling, how things in our lives are interconnected, and what is the best path forward for our healing.
I have seen and experienced personally how one can talk about a trauma and understand intellectually all of its components, origins, and how it shows up in one’s life, and yet it still keeps showing up. I have found that most talk therapy teaches a person how to cope and live with their current reactions to the traumas they experienced (like social anxiety, general anxiety, low self esteem, unhealthy habits, strong emotional reactions that hurt their relationships with their loved ones or colleagues). Through Soul Lightening Acupressure, the stuck energy in our bodies left over from the trauma can be cleared and that may then eliminate the origin of our anxieties or unhealthy habits and reactions, leaving us free to respond to our lives in a healthy way that serves us best instead of reacting out of trauma. I have personally experienced a clearing of traumatic energy from my body that makes an immediate and profound shift in the way I interact with the world around me, how I experience my own life story, and how connected I feel to the people in my life. I feel called to share this healing with others.
