Vibrant Energy Flow
Is stress and trauma that’s held in your body affecting your creativity, focus, and joy?
You’re highly sensitive and feel the world deeply, and your body feels it all. This allows you to do immensely successful and creatively juiced work, and it also means that your body feels and takes on ALL the stress.
This might show up as headaches, insomnia, physical tension especially in the neck and shoulders. You might find yourself feeling extreme anxiousness surrounding that important meeting or project. It might show up as feeling unclear about making big decisions, leading to stress about where you’re headed. You might experience crashes of energy, especially following a big success.
If you’re like many of my clients, you’ve done mindfulness work, therapy, and various healing modalities of many kinds. You’re spiritually connected and resourced, and you know on some level that all is well, that things are always working out for you. But the body doesn’t seem to have caught up with that knowledge, and continues to churn out stress hormones and adrenal surges and crashes- leading to exhaustion and a sense of spinning your wheels in different versions of the same experience.
You probably have a thorough understanding of your patterns, of the old traumas and wounds that have affected you- but the intellectual understanding hasn’t led to real change. You may have worked with affirmations and shifting your thoughts (and you wonder, if you were more disciplined about your meditation practice, whether things would resolve).
Affirmations and shifting thoughts can be phenomenally powerful, btw. The limitation is that when we work only the level of thought and mind, it’s possible to leave out the crucial impact that our bodies have on our overall state and well being. You’re probably already doing things to help your body manage stress: yoga, stretching, breathwork. But you may be finding it only goes so far and doesn’t bring the level of change that you’d hoped. (These practices can be transformational once we shift the deeper experience happening in the body).
One of the biggest challenges that my clients experience is that when things finally start to go really well, it feels impossible to trust that it’s safe… some part of you feels certain that something’s going to crash and take it all away.
If this describes you, I know something about you. I know there’s a reservoir of capacity and capability beneath the stress. That when you do tap into that stream of creative work, your energy comes on and your body and energy field light up. There’s a body-level confidence (because you’re doing what you’re wired for), and a pleasurable sense of feeling relaxed, focused, energized, and fully present.
And I also know it’s possible – through new skills, an embodied understanding of how your nervous system functions, deep listening to the language of the body, and releasing the stress responses that have been running the show – it’s possible to bring that deeply relaxed body, divine spark and clear confidence online as your day-to-day existence.
So you feel good interacting with the world effortlessly and easily and clearly. So you bring the strongest and clearest expression of your unique energy to every meeting, every interaction. So you feel that sense of confidence as you take on the new project and feel that kid-like happiness and excitement in life. Sleeping soundly and deeply after a day’s work and play because your body has learned how to truly rest (maybe for the first time ever). Knowing you have the resources, capacity and tools to stay in a state that makes achieving your goals a done deal.
Here’s what I’ve seen throughout twenty years working in the mind-body wellness field, working with hundreds of clients: most peeps are well aware of the effects that stress has on their bodies and minds, and many have a very good understanding of where it all comes from. And yet, even with all of this knowledge, “just letting go” is not as simple as it sounds. It’s important to recognize that there are very real and science-backed reasons why it’s not as easy as it sounds to just “let go” of the stress.
To understand why, we need to shine the light on the nervous system – because that’s where we’ve taken on the impact of stressful or traumatic events, and where our body/ minds store the imprints of past experiences. It’s where we continue to unconsciously react from the old programming- until we shift it at the body level.
Experiences of trauma or overloads of stress can cause the nervous system to become fixated in fight/ flight or freeze patterns. This causes our body-mind to react out of old patterning at very deep and unconscious levels.
What can be so frustrating is that because these responses are so primitive and unconscious, a lot of wonderful tools and processes may only go so far, if we’re not also aware of the physiology of the threat response that’s at play.
In my 12 week Somatic Coaching program, I’ll walk you through powerful processes to shift the stress response at the body level so it’s no longer running the show.
You’ll uncouple the fear from the creative process (because to truly create, our systems need to feel safe).
You’ll teach your nervous system that it is no longer stuck in the past- that it’s now safe to be relaxed, easy, calmly productive, and successful. So you can get off the roller coaster of anxiety, of constantly second-guessing yourself, of energy surges and crashes, of tension and headaches and insomnia – all the manifestations of trauma and stress that keep you from fully bringing your best work.
I’ll be handing you my toolkit of the most effective practices and techniques to calm the fight/ flight response and soothe and settle the body.
You’ll work one-on-one with me over Zoom to re-wire your stress responses and create the patterns that help you function at your best. In between sessions, you’ll work with customized mp3 recordings, based on your system’s needs, to integrate the work and build powerful momentum.
You’ll learn what’s going on beneath the surface, and the reasons why approaches like meditation and mindfulness may not yet have had the profound affect that you’d hoped. You’ll experience change at a body level that allows the mindfulness work to “land” and shifts the trajectory of your whole healing journey. So that instead of re-creating past trauma, the body becomes a gateway to the frequency you want to embody and experience.
