Trauma Healing Learning 24: Respiratory Failure

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_32_96dcz.jpg

Healing prayers across religions take different approaches to the mending of our bodies, minds and souls, but they all have one thing in common: a loving and beneficent Divine God who hears us. They all have had a place in prayer repertoire throughout the ages when loved ones have been sick or ill, and they may serve to comfort you when you are sick. Join Louise in Trauma Healing Learning 24: Respiratory Failure as she shares healing prayers from Judaism, Islam, Buddhism and Christianity. Gain some insight and wisdom about how healing prayers work across religions. Maybe this knowledge will inform how you approach praying for the restoration of health in the future!

Trauma Healing Learning 23: Radical Acceptance

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_7_bm2dx.jpgJoin Louise as she explores what might surprise you with Radical Acceptance. In this Trauma Healing Learning, she builds and expands on the concept of radical inclusion where we can accept both the pain and the joy without having to resist or choose one over the other, and provides more tools for doing so and a method for restoring and unlocking a sense of ease. She then widens the potential for trauma healing with a look at learnings from quantum physics, spirituality and an evidentiary based medium to more fully live into Radical Acceptance.

Trauma Healing Learning 22: A Thanksgiving Message

There is not a Trauma Healing Learning this week; however, Louise has a message for you if you tune in to Episode 22: A Thanksgiving Message.  She shares some tips for handling the holiday which can be full of joy as well as conflict triggers. Listen in for some trauma healing how to’s about how to handle difficulties that come up for you that might be related to past wounds of unresolved trauma. Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate! 

Trauma Healing Learning 21: Radical Inclusion

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_3_84k6h.jpgIn the trauma experience, it can seem like pain and suffering are the only sensations that our bodies and minds can feel. In fact, research and experience tell us that pain and joy can coexist and be experienced, almost at the same time. That integration, that Radical Inclusion, is one path to trauma healing. In this week’s Trauma Healing Learning, Louise shares ways to integrate and to include all emotions and sensations and what ancient spiritual teachings and modern neuroscience research tell us. Listen to this week’s Trauma Healing Learning for a lesson on how to include it all.

Trauma Healing Learning 20: Southern Exposure

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_28_961t8.jpgOur bodies – yes, our bodies — can help us make better, wiser, more informed decisions. When we are faced with big decisions — like Louise and her family faced in this week’s episode — paying attention to the sensations in our bodies can provide somatic wisdom about what decision to make. In this week’s Trauma Healing Learning, Louise explains how to cultivate that awareness and how to listen to our bodies when making decisions — and cultivating somatic awareness to track how our emotions create physical sensations which can shape our trajectory and sense of direction for the better.

Trauma Healing Learning: The (New) North Star

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_26_8o2d3.jpgA north star isn’t just a goal: it’s a guide. A guide towards something greater than our current scenery, our current circumstances. In trauma, like other times in our lives, we can lose sight of our North Star. When that happens, we can try our best to be graceful and adaptable as we look for guidance and what is the right direction. In this Trauma Healing Learning, Louise shares her own knowledge (and other cultures’ knowledge) about the meaning behind the North Star. She calls on listeners to think about their own desires and begin the process towards reaching (or finding) or rediscovering their North Star.

Trauma Healing Learning: Hot Cocoa

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_24_am74d.jpg

When Archer was too weak to consent due to collapsed lungs and the inability to take in much oxygen, Louise clung to a Youtube video that Archer had made for a school project the year before to hear his voice. Patient voices — not just their literal voices but their opinions and consent— are important to consider in the first place, regardless of their capacity or age as it relates to patient autonomy and trauma healing. In this Trauma Healing Learning, Louise gives listeners and medical providers an expanded view of informed consent. Join Louise as she considers the nuances of the patient voice in medical settings and what happens when a patient is unable to advocate for themselves — whether due to their medical condition or the circumstances of their care. Listen as she explores our capacity to rely on an energy field for guidance for difficult decision Making.

Trauma Healing Learning: Caught in No Man‘s Land

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_22_b755q.jpg

Belief, simple belief in possibilities, is powerful. And it has healing capabilities. In this Trauma Healing Learning, where Louise and her family felt like they were caught in no man’s land, they also chose to believe that they had options — that there was more to be done to care for Archer. Maybe it wouldn’t be at AtlantiCare, but it was there somewhere in the world. Louise mulls over this idea and expands on this wisdom for our own lives. Listen to this Trauma Healing for some ideas about how to not give up on believing.

Trauma Healing Learning: Radical Forgiveness

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_17_br5fn.jpg

Forgiving someone who wronged you (even unintentionally) is tough, especially when it comes to forgiveness associated with a traumatic event.  And yet, forgiveness might be a necessary act towards trauma healing. Listen to this week’s Trauma Healing Learning for a delicate and impactful discussion about Radical Forgiveness and how it serves us (or not!) on our journey towards trauma healing.
