Episode 2: The path to healing: Honoring your needs and desires

Episode Description:

So many of us are disconnected from what we truly desire and need. As survivors of childhood trauma, we were taught that it was not safe to want or need anything.

We spend so much of our lives denying that we want or need anything or anyone. It is a way to self-protect.

Deep healing requires us to open to our physical and emotional needs. But, how do we do this?

In today’s episode, I share how to connect within… to your desires and needs and a guided practice to help you begin or deepen your connection.

Episode Notes:

- Healing from childhood trauma involves reconnecting to oneself, including the heart, body, needs, and desires.

- Reconnecting and recognizing one's needs and desires is challenging but crucial for setting boundaries and feeling worthy.

- Trauma causes disconnection from the body and the belief that needs won't be met, leading to self-doubt and difficulty recognizing one's wants and needs.

- Reconnecting is a practice that involves specific exercises such as breathing, body scanning, and looking inward to the part that needs validation and acknowledgment. Healing is about coming back home to one's true self, not changing who they are.
