It is no secret that we are living in a very traumatized world. Trauma is a vast and complicated topic, and can often result in feelings of overwhelm, isolation or hopelessness. But know this: when we understand the core root of our trauma, get support and/or healing trauma, and equip ourselves with the right tools, healing IS possible.
First, what exactly is trauma?
In some ways, “trauma” has become almost a buzzword in the spiritual and self-help worlds. In short, trauma is broadly defined as “the result of one or more distressing events causing overwhelming amounts of stress that exceed the person’s ability to cope or integrate the emotions involved, eventually leading to serious, long-term negative consequences.”
There are many forms of Trauma, and we have all experienced one form or another (or many). Trauma can be physical, emotional, mental, psychological, spiritual, and/or sexual. As such, Healing trauma can incorporate different forms of emotional healing, somatic healing, and/or spiritual healing methods.
Trauma can be from one-time events, such as an accident, injury, or a violent attack, especially if it was unexpected or happened in childhood. It can be from ongoing, relentless stress, such as living in a crime-ridden neighborhood, battling a life-threatening illness or experiencing traumatic events that occur repeatedly, such as bullying, domestic violence, or childhood neglect. It can even result from sometimes overlooked causes, such as surgery (especially in the first 3 years of life), the sudden death of someone close, the breakup of a significant relationship, or a humiliating or deeply disappointing experience, especially if someone was deliberately cruel.
Severe emotional trauma causes lasting changes in the region of the brain that is responsible for regulating emotional responses triggered by the amygdala. This can create an ongoing constant “fight or flight” reaction, depression, anxiety and more.
Sexual trauma and emotional healing
Sexual Trauma is something that touches the majority of people’s lives, whether we have experienced it ourselves, or we are carrying the trauma in our DNA, or from a previous lifetime or taken it on from society/ the collective. Even if we are not carrying the imprint of this trauma, it can affect our lives through someone we know and love experiencing it.
Every 98 seconds, a person in American is sexually assaulted. And every 8 minutes, that victim is a child. And these are just the reported incidences in the US.
Experiencing sexual trauma and abuse has deep and long lasting results, affecting our relationships, our health, even our ability to function in daily life. Unlike so many other crimes, sexual abuse and trauma also carries with it painful shame and guilt. Shame and guilt are THE LOWEST vibrating emotions, and if we are vibrating at those emotions, it is VERY difficult, if not impossible, to create happiness and joy.
Sexual abuse can steal our power, our self worth, our joy, and more. Whether you experienced sexual abuse and trauma in childhood, from a stranger, from a family member or your partner, or are carrying the imprints in your DNA, this group healing will help you release it once and for all.
Healing from trauma in the individual and the collective
As the popular saying goes, what we heal in ourselves we heal in our lineage. We can expand that even further: what we heal in ourselves we heal in the world. We live in a hyper traumatized and very traumatizing world, and healing trauma is a key factor in healing society as a whole. One of the biggest favors we can do for ourselves and for humanity is to heal our own trauma. We hold trauma in our bodies, our DNA, our Cells, and our energy bodies.
Trauma keeps us fragmented, causing separation, disconnection….when we heal our trauma we begin our journey of coming back into wholeness, connection, oneness, and harmony with yourself, with others, with Source, and with universe…we gain clarity on who we really are, and step into our Power, our own Divinity, and with the release of trauma, we can begin to create new stories, better health, healthier more loving relationships, more abundance, and overall well being.
Utilizing Sacred Soul Alignment as a tool for trauma healing
Sacred Soul Alignment is a spiritual healing modality that deeply transforms and heals all aspects of you: the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual layers of your being. Each alignment attunes you to a specific frequency or vibration.
If you are feeling the call towards using spiritual healing in your healing trauma journey, or in using it to help others with trauma and emotional healing, and wish to build a powerful foundation for your practice, Sacred Soul Alignment will provide you with the spiritual and practical tools to do so.
Sacred Soul Alignment is uniquely suited to assist you in healing from trauma or supplementing trauma therapy, as it goes deep to uncover long-buried blocks and wounds. The Alignments work beautifully with any other healing methods or processes you may already be using and the many various ways the Alignments can be utilized is limited only by the imagination (I am constantly discovering new ways to integrate Sacred Soul Alignments into my life and healing practice)
If you choose to be a Sacred Soul Alignments practitioner, you will receive powerful Attunements to unlock your ability to channel clear, divine wisdom from Source. This means you can immediately begin working with the Alignments even if you’ve never done healing work before!
One of the beautiful aspects of the Sacred Soul Alignment modality is that you do not necessarily have to be a “healing practitioner” to learn how to use this powerful modality. Rather, in studying Sacred Soul Alignments you discover your healing nature and meet your inner healer that lives deep within. The Alignments will also connect you to your own Divine Aspect so you can easily channel healing energies and accurate insights and wisdom for yourself and for those you heal.
Elysia Hartzell started teaching Sacred Soul Alignment partially because there was no other healing modality or program out there that showed people how to go deep and release trauma in a way that would work for everyone, even those who had never been “healed” or who had never thought of themselves as a healer or healed anyone in their lives.
Trauma is a vast and complicated topic, but healing IS possible. Whether you take the path of Sacred Soul Alignment or something else entirely, know that you can heal from trauma, and the healing process it WILL change your life and the collective around you.
