Trauma so often robs us of the energy we need to be fully alive in the now.. Trauma may start to pull on us first thing in the morning, especially for those of us trapped inside freeze or fawn states of Complex PTSD. Only lately have I really begun to understand how pulled away from being able to live fully alive in the world I am on most days.. My preoccupation with the ancestors and trauma though real and powerful I have lately begun to realize through grieving has not made it easy for me to trust in or try as much I needed to connect.. I am working lately to be more present in my body and grounding myself is a part of this… As a spiritual and sensitive person it is also explained in one of the videos below why many of us have a tendency to detach into the higher realms or upper chakras.. Some spiritual teaching claim that some of us born from angelic realms are not as comfortable hear on earth with the so called ‘lower’ frequencies and sadly much of religion in my Catholic faith did not really honor the feminine and the earthly part of me as well as the sexual part as a woman.
I am including a couple of videos below on the subject of grounding.. the practice of putting our feet on bare earth has been shown to have many positive healthy benefits.. In colder climates this may not be always easy but I was interested to learn tonight of a grounding mat that can be purchased to help with the production of negative ions which are good for easing inflammation.. I hope you find some benefit from the following videos.
