Descriptions of healing:
My healing has been Heaven and Hell. Sometimes when feeling my feelings fully, I want to run away. I know I will die in them or want to, and I know I can’t. Other times there is such joy from the freedom and wisdom I am on the highest mountain soaring like an eagle.
When Donna described feeling the feeling fully and appropriately, I told her no way. I’m not going to do that because I have no feelings. I told her I did not want to go back to everything that had happened to me. She gently said, ‘You won’t go back. We are going back only to free the trapped feelings inside you.’ It was the hardest and best thing I have ever done. I found me. I found understanding, wisdom, and freedom!! I learned I like myself!
Feelings our feelings are challenging and can be painful. Often just the thought of feeling terrifies us. We may believe we will not survive if we feel. We always survive.
I am often asked, “How long will it take?” My answer is, ‘It depends on how many feeling layers are stored in our body.’ That depends on how young we were and how long the trauma lasted. It also depends on if anyone helped or ever protected us. If we had help, it would have given us many gifts that helped us maintain us in many ways. The final thing it depends on is how much we put into the healing process – time, effort, and resources.
Yes! Healing is hard. It is also freeing and amazing! We gain us and wisdom! God gives us gifts of information, freedom, and wisdom as we heal and feel our feelings fully.
