This is Dr Bessel van der Kolk, the world's leading authority on the treatment of traumatic stress, and author of "The Body Keeps the Score", a favorite book of mine on PTSD and recovery. πŸ’š In this clip, "Trauma is..." Dr. Van der Kolk shows how trauma relates to our survival system, explaining how and why the survival part of our brain can hijack our "rational self" after we have experienced trauma. Those who have not experienced traumatic stress are not going to be able to understand what's happening to someone who has when they become triggered, so mental health education for all is paramount to both receiving and providing support. --------------------------------- #besselvanderkolk #traumatic #stress #ptsd #cptsd #ptsdrecovery #cptsdrecovery #thebodykeepsthescore #cellular #memories #survival #brain #triggers #dissociation #fear #hypervigilance #educateyourself #emdr #emdrtherapy #healfromwithin #newnormal #traumarecovery #mindgames #healyourlife #educateyourself #mentalhealtheducation #learn #mentalhealthawareness #forall #rewireyourbrain #science RP @wisemind.com_

"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." - Rumi --------------------------------- Mental, emotional, psychological and physical detoxification is a wholistic, systemic approach to health that makes achieving your goals fun... really! This is because you'll start to feel emotionally better within the first few weeks :) πŸ’š A natural uplift in mood is one of the first things that people who begin to incorporate more juices, fruits and veggies notice when they begin to eat lots of ripe, juicy, chlorophyll-rich plants and vibrant, colorful fruits and flowers. 🌱 Your increased good mood will help you when re-affirming your decision to stay committed to a do-no-harm, eat with self-love, plant based lifestyle. That's because it's an experiential decision, meaning based on your own experiences, not someone else's words, experiences, or transformation, and as such, it is lasting - because you are your own experiment - and the direct recipient of all the rewards of a living foods lifestyle. Try it for yourself, because words don't teach!!! 😊 #rumi #lovequotes #love #loving #seekwithin #loveyourselffirst #lawofattraction #lawofallowing #ease #flow #nobarriers #open #letlovein #openyourheart #rawvegan #donoharm #selfcare #feelgood #livingfoods #plants #guthealth #foodmood #selflove #edibleroses #loveyourself #tlc #experiential #seeforyourself #tryit #mentalhealtheducation

"You don't have to stay. You don't have to keep fighting to make it work. You don't have to force and pound your way into the next iteration or the next thing. You don't have to convince others or yourself. You don't have to explain, justify or defend. You don't have to show up for something that has already left. You don't have to believe the narrative given long ago that says what lasts longest is most valuable. You can. You are allowed to. To stay as long as you want and fight as hard as you want and show up with everything you have and love it with all of you. And, you are not required. You are allowed to quit. Quitting is not for losers. It is for lovers, of this one and wild life." πŸ’• This is a love song, not an apology: in praise of quitting by @isabel_abbott --------------------------------- #lovesong #notanapology #inpraiseofquitting #youcanquit #nopermission #uptoyou #you #decide #feelyourfeelings #feel #reflection #introspection #time #ittakestime #listentoyourbody #insight #awareness #vipassana #meditation #gowithin #center #youhavetheanswers #listen #youarenotalone #selflove #selfcare #takecareofyourself #youareloved #healyourlife #mentalhealtheducation

Sometimes a new client will know what has brought them into counseling or a group, & more often than not they just can't stand feeling so terribly anymore - but don't know what's wrong... So here is how we start to heal; from the inside out & based on self-esteem and self-love. πŸ’š β€’ Meditation - learning to quiet the mind & become an observer of your thoughts, rather than a reactor, is incredibly empowering. πŸ’™ β€’ Exercise - Our bodies harbor cellular memory; certain movements & motions can be triggering, sometimes without us knowing why. Exercising lets us get back into the body, helps us to feel our feelings again, releases endorphins that skyrocket your mood & instills a confidence in yourself that feels wonderful & quite powerful. ❀️ β€’ Processed foods are devoid of digestive enzymes, & require intensive, laborious effort from our digestive system. This leads us to feeling exhausted & cranky. 🧑 β€’ Fresh fruit & veggies are hydrating & easily assimilated into energy, allowing your body to feel satiated & ready to go go go! πŸ’œ β€’ Spending time in nature offers us the chance to observe phenomena outside ourselves, & can help ground you into feeling more spiritually aware of the perfection of the Universe, of which you are a part. Also, most people are deficient in Vit. D; which plays a huge role in our emotional well-being. πŸ’› β€’ How do you know what you can & can't control??!? This is often a big challenge for those looking to feel better. Starting with Cognitive Distortions is always eye-opening, & life-changing when they are identified & then eradicated. πŸ’š β€’ What you see, hear & allow your focus to remain on intensifies. None of us can solve a problem when we are in the midst of it. We must feel better in order to get an accurate perspective on how to solve it. --------------------------------- #healthylifestyle #healyourlife #psychotropic #alternative #psychotropicalternatives #healfromwithin #meditation #nature #moveyourbody #feelyourfeelings #eatmorefruit #eatmoreveggies #hydration #eatmoreplants #mentalhealth #counselor #healing #wholistic #holistichealth #mind #body #spirit #feelyourbest #selfcare #selflove #howto #loveyourself RP @awake_spiritual
