Somatic Experiencing Healing Early Imprints and Developmental Trauma

Trauma generally lasts a short period but if not dealt with wounds can last a lifetime.  Situations that overwhelm our capacity to defend ourselves and we feel powerless

Trauma can be passed through transgenerational, epigenetics, the womb and inherited through family lines.  There may be feelings of danger, fear, terror, anger and sadness.  It can lead to post traumatic stress and disassociation as well as depression, addictions, eating disorders, anxiety, isolation and feeling like they don’t belong and there is something wrong with them.

Human beings have an inborn ability to overcome the effects of trauma.  

Our body holds the energy and trauma of what we experienced and when we’re able to stop, observe and listen we receive intuitive guidance which allows us to renegotiate trauma and moves us through our blocks to healing and a renewed sense of well-being.


Ever had the experience where you choose to wear something one day and another day it just feels wrong?    Why you prefer to sit in one place in a room and not another? 

There is so much information that goes into making these choices and you’re using felt sense and inner knowingness from your body.   Employing mindfulness practices to help you gather and access information about yourself.  By tracking and being aware of physical movements and sensations in the body (i.e., muscle tension, breath, heart racing,  trembling).

Discharging Trauma

Titration is utilized as a way of taking small steps so you’re not re-traumatizing or overwhelming your system.  It is a process of baby steps that enables you to finally start discharging the blocked energy from your system.  The stuck energy starts to be released in small manageable waves.  It can be a shaking or movement in the physical body, you can feel a subtle change in your breath by it either expanding or feeling stuck or sensing vibration changing in your energetic body.  

Development Steps

If it feels too intense… sense only a little slice of it?  So your system can manage and not shutdown.  Stay with it for a few moments.  Insights might come.  Notice them but always return back to the immediate experience.   This type of work can be a challenge.  At times we get mixed up and we may feel we are the feelings.
