Trauma - the response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event that overwhelms an individual's ability to cope, causes feelings of helplessness, diminishes sense of safety and the ability to feel a full range of emotions and experiences. It may cause a sense of hopelessness and shutdown. It can cause anxiety, anger, irritability and depression.

When we incarnate in a human body it seems inevitable that we experience trauma. So trauma is varied in range from severe trauma to softer trauma. Regardless of degree it has a debilitating impact on the expression of our life.

'Hard' trauma is generally understood. Lesser known or acknowledged as trauma is; any time our body contracts - it could be stress at work, stress at home, arguments with partner, financial concerns - we even contract from our own negative thought forms. There are thousands of examples of overwhelm on our systems.

When we are living out of past, habitual nervous system responses - fight, flight, freeze we are missing out on the joy of present moment awareness. Our true nature - one of joy, peace and SELF -satisfaction is blighted by our dis-regulated nervous systems.

By no choice of our own we are hijacked by a nervous system in continual activation - this impedes our freedom as life.

In my own past before resolving my trauma and balancing my nervous system, I was only comfortable in Nature or with animals. I was stuck in f/f/f combination and was missing out on a whole area of life - communion with other humans. I had no felt sense of safety in the body or on the planet.

My nervous system clocked people as a threat and my experience was one of continual activation. Feelings of anxiety, defensiveness, dissociation and hopelessness.

I thought this was life. I didn't know anything else other than this activated response to life.

If you observe society - locally and globally you will notice that most humans' nervous systems are highly charged. Inner peace and outer peace elude the majority of humans on the planet.

Are you at peace?

This time in history we have a chance for great change - for evolvement as a species. Current understanding of the nervous system is making its way through to the mainstream and we have a real chance to bring about a more highly evolved version of ourselves . We can extract ourselves from instinctual survival mode, from dissociated or depressed states of being. We can achieve inner peace - one organism at a time. Change can occur for the betterment of humanity. If we heal our individual and collective trauma and balance our nervous systems we will be living in peace.

Our individual and collective pasts have been subject to violence, hatred, fear, greed and anger -we have been living a hell on earth. This is such a magnificent planet and us at our source are truly resplendent.

Is our dis-regulated nervous system responsible for our contracted, sub-standard form of humanity we are expressing at the moment?

Imagine living in a society where we are responsive not reactive, where kindness and true compassion are a natural expression of who we are. Where we don't need love but experience ourselves as love itself.

Nervous system health is imperative if we are to gain inner and outer peace.

Nervous system regulation could herald in the much anticipated aquarian age.

One of mass awakening, co -operation, compassionate care for our SELF in the form of all sentient beings - including the planet herself.

Now is the time you can address your nervous system and bring it into peace and balance. Healing a dis-regulated nervous system and maintaining it's balance is one of the most pro-active, positive actions you can contribute to the planet at the moment. I feel our survival - our awakening and flourishing will be precipitated by this work.

Warmest regards

Spiritual awakening is when our true nature - the vastness and silence - the lived experience of the question - Who am I? - surfaces as us.

There is a changing of the guard and a spring of wellness - vastness -emptiness that is also a rich and all pervading fullness emerges.

Where there was once a fearful, constricted, suffering, separate individual there is now a great experience of oneness and love a vastness and beauty beyond description.

It can be a gradual process or an abrupt startling realisation or a combination.

Yet when I look back at this life there have been many times I have been that.

When one loses oneself in the majesty of nature or in making something, playing music, dancing or..................................................

It is not apart from us - it is us. We have all experienced this - we however give much more credit and credence to our personhood - our limited form of existence.

Personhood or limited ego identity springs back readily into place.

The physical body contracts, shoulders and jaw tighten and there we are a triggered, fearful, driven person protecting our sense of self.

When this bizarre, desperate and contracted caricature falls away there is such a sense of relief, hilarity and joy.

It is Grace that descends and shines her light through the vessel and consciousness. I feel the seeker - seeking for what always is - just here - can contribute to the remembering of their true self by removing a lot of noise of the person.

The person's noise in the form of protecting, pushing, manipulating, defending, rushing, avoiding, or exhausted, beaten, hopeless. Human consciousness in its most contracted form.

The progress of our spiritual awakening is vastly compromised by a nervous system stuck on a loop of fight/ flight/ freeze combinations. Our life is hijacked. Our evolution and involution is thwarted.

Beingness - always here waiting for the seeker to surrender to it.

Trauma, tension and stress release is a path to awakening. It is a worthwhile pursuit for pre-awakening to clear and lighten so the beingness can be remembered and allowed. to excel. During awakening to assist the process and to nurture an abiding awakening and post-awakening to deal with the clean up on the full circle back to humanity after transcendence.

There are many fruitful modalities to work with. TRE®, Shamanic Healing, SE Psychotherapy, Cranio Sacral, Massage - the list goes on. The healing journey is a path to awakening. Have you noticed how noisy some people can be even when they are keeping silence, the noise exuding off their person is cumbersome on the environment and those around them.

Some masters say, "Be Quiet". This task is made easier when the nervous system is in balance.- the mind automatically calms- we naturally arrive at a state of inner peace.

Trauma healing and healing the nervous system brings us to a calm, presence - the doorway to the absolute.

When we know we are something profound, limitless and universal it is much lighter to work on our humanity.

Lighter, still imperative.

Awakening is an ongoing journey, a human/divine journey.

My own journey has included much trauma and tension release and continues and is ongoing. What a blessed life to have this human incarnation to experience our divinity and our humaness - our divinity through our humanity.

The body, our vessel for consciousness; home to the senses, our instrument for experience, exploration, discovery and growth. The body reacts to so much; sights, and sounds, to touch, to pleasure and pain, joy and sorrow. To real and perceived threat. To every word ever spoken to it, to every thought listened to.

It is all held in the tissue and fascia. Our bodies hold a myriad of stories. It is a sensitive instrument, expanding into life one moment contracting from it in the next.

Being held in sacred healing space is monumental for the body and has profound effects on the down regulation of an over active nervous system. The benefits of hands on healing is a chance for the body to be heard, to be held and to be soothed. When the body can let go a little, we can leave aside a busy mind and come back to the breath. We can feel our body in the present moment, a time and space to meet your self. Being held in sacred healing space you give your self the opportunity to stop, listen, feel, meet, release, revitalise.

There is a life force that flows through the universe, this force can also flow through your body enlivening your very existence.

Can you feel this pulse of life coursing through your body?

Or does contraction, energetic blocks and a busy mind disturb this natural flow?

Healing it seems is an on going journey, releasing, letting go layer by layer. Contraction after contraction caused by wounding, physical and emotional; experienced by and held in the body. This so it seems is part of the human condition on earth at this time.

This part of our journey, the homecoming, the unwinding of hurt and contraction, the return to our true nature, can be met. For some it is best met in company in co-creation with someone to witness and hold space.

Can you make time and space for your body?

Is it time to listen to your body; to heal and transform?

Can you go to a hands on healer that you resonate with. Be held in sacred healing space. Can you have a massage and greet and honour yourself.

Even better go for a series of work.

If funds don't allow or you don't want touch. What could you do?

Pour yourself a bath and create your own sacred space. Swim in the ocean and wash off the dross. Lay on the warm sand, let the sun warm your bones. sit and notice your breath, dance or move. What can you do to acknowledge and tend your body?

Can you stop and choose something that revives your body and spirit?

If you don't already could you introduce one thing, once a week, designated time, space and activity for your body. See if life is different when you hear your body and do something to assist it.

Better to listen to a whisper than a scream.

When the contraction turns to expansion the life force can flow freely.

Life lived from this expanded experience is one of great and profound freedom.
