Emotional upheaval and trauma-based emotional scars can be challenging to manage in your day-to-day life. In my experience, I found that my emotional state was a knee-jerk reaction at times, especially around not being heard. I couldn’t be fully present with my family. When I was triggered, I would become so overwhelmed by my feelings. It felt as if I were those feelings.
When I was with my children and loved ones, and I was More Present, my emotional state was still causing background noise, which led to some numbing behaviors.
I regularly incorporate The Body Code™ as a weekly healing practice. Since doing so, the background noise has died down to a whisper. I am the one in control of my emotional state and my day-to-day functioning. I am present and emotionally connected to myself, my children, and my husband. I am meeting my needs as well as theirs, understanding what might be troubling each of us.
My children have told me time and again that I am “so much nicer now.” This affirmation warms my heart and validates my growth.
