How to Heal Trauma – 10 Ways to Soothe your Soul (part two)

Here are five more ways that have helped me to heal trauma and find my way to inner peace.

Trip

Grass between my toes, the sound of sitars.
I sway with the breeze.
I melt with the moment becoming,
becoming.

Your Majesty

Your Majesty

Having walked through the darkness I found myself, unable to contain the light.

It softens all my edges and calms my storms. I found myself in the eye of them all. In the stillness at the centre. I found myself, in boundless contemplation between worlds. I found myself formless. Timeless. Nameless. No thing- yet, all things.

I found myself, in nothing and in everything. Caught in a beautiful paradox.

Now

Now

In this moment, you Are, and you rise like the lotus out of the mud, and you unfold your way toward the light. In this moment you transcend the world and float toward infinity. It is enough that you breathe. In this moment, in your presence, all worries fade to insignificance in the brilliance of your light and the fullness of your breath. In this moment all gates open up to you; all possibilities remain. In this moment you have a choice, and that choice is always available to you now.

Surrender

Surrender

Tell me, where do you run to when you run from yourself?

Perhaps you lay down with the earth and the wild flowers in a faraway field, make a cocoon amongst the soft grass and your memories of lives long lost. You trade pentacles for your life, for your blood sweat and all your tears. You fashion elaborate walls of them both inside and out to give you an illusion of safety. Still, the frost of winter pierces through your defences to reach your heart, and you are overcome sometimes with the longing to reunite with yourself, to dance once more in fields of your own creation.
