If you want to know how to heal from past traumas, keep reading! Past traumas come from TRAUMAtic experiences that you most likely have not healed from. When these experiences happen, emotions are generated that are meant to be fully processed at the time the trauma occurs. But since many of us were raised to not feel our feelings, we suppress those emotions instead. And when we do that they become stuck energy inside our mind, body, + spirit, affecting all parts of our life until we wake up + realize…
We need healing.
While there are many paths to healing, I’m going to share with you 6 techniques that have personally helped me heal some of my deepest issues. These healing modalities for past traumas are also not a one and done practice. These are meant to be completed over and over until you begin to find relief or experience a shift in your perspective.
Because you will also be releasing blocked negative energy you may also feel like a weight has suddenly been lifted off your shoulders. This is healing in action!
Keep in mind that I am not a doctor or therapist and you should always reach out to a licensed professional if you feel the need to.

HEALING YOUR INNER CHILD
Most of the past traumas we experience happen when we are children. We carry those traumatic experiences AND our wounded inner child with us into adulthood. This can cause a plethora of problems for us like guilt, shame, trust issues, fear of abandonment, and toxic self-sabotaging behaviors.
Healing your inner child is the process of visualizing your inner child and speaking to her/him lovingly with the words you needed to hear as a kid. This heals the wounded inner child while also healing the trauma experienced as a child and releasing the negative blocked energy.
