 Trauma Recovery

“Only the phoenix rises and does not descend. And everything changes. And nothing is truly lost.”  Neil Gaiman

There are very few that can say they have not encountered a traumatic event or experienced a traumatic period in their life. Trauma affects everyone whether being an outside observer or the one experiencing the disorienting event. Trauma is not what happens, it is the emotional response to what has happened.   

Trauma can be considered acute, chronic, complex and passed on generationally. Whether experienced as a one time event, repeated or a complex history; the hardest part of recovery is overcoming the disorienting way trauma affects the experience of the individual. It is an assault on one's sense of self-efficacy narrowing one's lens and limiting one's view of self and role in their world. It takes time to come to terms with what has happened and to figure out how to live with the create oneself a new reality.

"Life cracks us into unrecognizable shards of former incarnations. Slivers of our hurt and our pain and our shame nestles next to fragments of our truth, our divinity, our fierce reclamation of power. It is this very brokenness that allows us to knit together, kaleidoscope style. And we spin and shift and turn to the light until we appear brilliant, lit from within. Suddenly we are revealed; unexpected beauty born directly from brokenness. We have to be willing to break in order to become.”
