Core Wounds Revealed
Core Wounds Revealed.
You may find yourself revisiting old wounds, despite all of the times you have cracked the code and (seemingly) dealt with the root of your pain…a new layer may be surfacing for you at this time.
Intensified energy shines a torch into the dark, to highlight the remaining debris of what has been cleared. You may find yourself immersed in the silt of repressed gunk that sits in your system.
Look around you. Many people are in the midst of their own version of this.
The binding of core wounds woven into us are in the midst of a steep and unforgiving unravelling.
For some: the experience is cataclysmic, in the inner and outer world.
For others - a force of nature that brings with it a purification that is swift and crisp. (Perhaps a combination of both!)
Tensions are high on a deeply personal experiential level - it is hard to hold others when you’re going through so much.
Be mindful not to get stuck in defensive response to other people’s drama.
You will take it personally.
You will have a relationship with it.
It will trigger you.
You will respond from your own trauma.
Take this opportunity to notice what resonates, and what emerges from your own core wound.
This is yours to work on, be mindful not to expect others to take ownership of what ails you - just as you are not responsible for another’s.
These pangs that rise up from the depths of your wounding pose as potentials…opportunities to learn.
The opportunity to intervene between old patterns and your future…offering you a CHOICE to do something different. To do better, be better.
Better than what the core wounds have had you believing you’d ever have the capacity to be.
Creating safety for your tender heart, rather than seeking it externally as you’ve been taught you had to.
More powerful than the stories that left you powerless.
You are not your wound. History does not have to repeat itself.
Bring yourself back to heart, before you respond.
Things can be vastly different…if you take the time to come back to love. It may take more time, sure. Making new ways to relate: requires and deserves that space.
The energy moving through takes old stories of Victimhood…and attempts to run this outdated show out of town.
Chose to own your mistakes, grow from the mistakes of others, and rewire the response systems that you learned when you were young…in whatever ways resonate for you.
Chose to surrender to the flow of what you can’t control, take charge of the things you can - and make a stand to be courageously trusting of the unfolding.
Detach yourself from a particular fairy tale outcome.
But don’t give up on hope, dreams, wishes and magic.
Don’t give up on yourself.
No one else can heal your wounds FOR you.
No one else is going to ride in on a white stallion to save you from your demons.
No one else can dig you out of the situation you’re currently in.
You are the answer. You have always and will always be the answer, and the prayer.
You will save your fucking self.
Those left to stand beside you on top of the mountain peak will surely have earned the flag they lay into the soil at your feet.
Those beside you will join forces with you, having met their own wounds, alone in the dark - but beside you.
Together you forge new beginnings and leave the old skins and armour in the pit below. You won’t need them anymore.
And if you find yourself alone at the peak, know too that this is your path - and the best is yet to come. See the horizon as a brand new day, the sun shines upon you as you embark on the next cycle.
You may not like what transpires, but it will most certainly be what you need.
Wrap Yourself in Appreciation
Before you get too swept away with gifting to others and setting New Year’s resolutions, stop a moment.
There is a whisper in the air…can you hear it? Can you feel it?
This gentle energy invokes us to feel deeply into our resilience and have gratitude for ourselves.
Are you grateful to YOURSELF, for being you?
There is no other, that can bring your unique expression to life.
This energy invites you to sit a while in stillness, appreciating how far you’ve come. Celebrate the little wins, the growth, the self awareness and realisations you’ve had. This is no small thing, darling heart.
Quite often we’re so busy trying to reach that higher state, attain happier, healthier, better, MORE. There’s a place for that, but don’t forget to appreciate yourself and those around you, and your environment. What you already have, right here…right now.
Be in presence - while you give presents.
The Year is Wrapping Up.
As you reflect on the year - notice your triumphs… This year has been ‘different’ to any other…on a global scale. We’ve been able to come out again and in some way or other…some things have changed. We’ve changed.
We’ve not just emerged out of our homes but in some ways…out of the old and the outdated. Perhaps there’s been a shifting out of the restrictive (yet comfortable) patterns…and lifting the facade of who we thought we were or who we thought others were.
As we break free from the cocoons that have kept us in survival, we get to spread our glorious wings, destined to take flight in a whole new world.
This metamorphosis is a beautiful thing, for to realise more truth is a gift. These new wings may take some time to get used to, and things may not always be shiny and sparkling, but a gift none the less.
If things didn’t go to plan or you’ve faced some dis-ease, pain or shadow this year, may you interpret the teachings of life as a blessing… in a way that is deeply meaningful to you. May you experience relief and decompression… and feel the vibrancy of possibility, potential and peace.
Congratulations on your resilience in being able to navigate this new normal.
If you feel afraid to fly, may the winds of change be swift and gentle, and the glory of life help to stabilise the turbulence with loving Grace.
Very grateful to be invited along to the local Geelong Diwali Annakut celebration hosted by BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha.
We love learning about different cultures and the beautiful ways they celebrate life and humanity.
There was a mountain of treats made with love and devotion by the community as an offering. After being offered up the food (prasad) is then shared with their community and beyond. It carries the blessings of the ceremony (and tastes amazing).
It is so fitting to experience this as we have been feeling the importance of gratitude and the many ways it can be expressed.
Turning Mud into Gold
We’ve all been through big shifts and challenges for the last few years. It’s been an unprecedented turbulence that has taken the minority by surprise, and we’ve all done our best to find our way through.
Things have opened up.
Planes are back in the skies.
People are filling the streets, as a sense of community is surfacing again.
Families can celebrate in person together, and faces are being revealed from beneath the masks.
Friends are reuniting, catching up for dinners and parties – able to hang out in real life without a screen in between them.
Many are discovering social awkwardness, tactile defensiveness, and perhaps a germ-phobia that they’d never experienced before.
Perhaps we find ourselves in a bit of a shell shock – a delayed reaction in our system that has been isolated and locked away, that now must share their space with others. The space that we have been told is too close for the last two years or so.
During this period, so many people have been through deep personal troubles, inner battles, and massive lifestyle upheavals.
Perhaps we’ve changed in ways that make us unrecognisable to our families and friends, and we’re not quite sure how to navigate this new normal, or where we belong anymore.
As an autistic person, this is how I have felt for most of my life. It feels like these days, more people I interact with are describing their feelings or sense of dysregulation without knowing how to articulate it. But I have recognised it because I live it. These experiences are real and valid, no matter what the neurological ‘status.’
What I recognise and feel currently, is less separation between neurodivergence and neurotypical – but a unified humanness…People. Humans with a shared need for stability, safety, control, and balance. It seems we ALL function with varying degrees of anxiety, of dysregulation and overwhelm – now more than ever perhaps.
When I found myself in the grips of PTSD – consumed by trauma that had never surfaced fully until now, I knew that there was something I needed to do to create my own sense of safety. A safety and stability that didn’t come from outside me, but from within. This is a muscle that needs to be built, exercised and maintained.
That is how the Reset & Regulate Regime began its inception, created from bare bones of something I’d started putting together over a year ago. The timing was now, and with synchronicity – a perfect time to assist ME to get myself back to my Zen, my powerful creator, my purpose, and my bliss. But it was also the perfect time to share with others…humans that have been dysregulated by the way our worlds have been turned upside down.
As a by-product of sharing my test run with a few others – this program has incidentally helped us all beyond expectation.
One person’s pain is one person’s pain. It’s unique and different for every circumstance, every being. Therefore, a unique and different approach seemed the only way to help people, from where they’re at, with what they’ve got and what they need, on an intimate and personal level.
It is a deep, heartfelt wish of mine to be able to use my (often unpleasant) experiences for the greater good. To spin the mud into gold and share these precious nuggets with those who are seeking them.
It is my wish and intention, that the ripple effect of the good that is generated, assists the well-being of others with lasting, positive benefits and a fruitful transformation for those who find it.
With love from my heart to yours,
Yesterday we had the absolute pleasure of hosting our first Vital Space Nexus event IN PERSON!
We’ve been chipping away in the background for the last year or so online - and it was refreshing and joyous to be able to connect in real life! What fun, to hang out with such beautiful beings and do what we love in an intimate yet casual way.
The focus for the session was to Nurture and Nourish the overall system. We covered SO much in a short time that left the receivers feeling deeply relaxed and nurtured.
We worked on:
- Energy bodies, Chakras etc
- Energising the overall system
- Unblocking and optimising pathways
- Optimising cellular function
- Bringing in Nurturing energies and frequencies
Sharing conversation about our various healing crafts, awakening, conditioning and getting to know the participants and their healing journey was just the icing on the (carrot) cake but also just the tip of the ice burg!
We are incredibly grateful and humbled by each person showing up - not just for our event but for themselves. For saying ‘yes’ to receiving.
We know that this can often be the hardest part, especially as exhausted mums who are always needed - it’s SO important we make time for ourselves too. Thank you for saying yes to yourselves. We know how challenging that decision can be.
Keep an eye out for more events like these on a fortnightly basis. Themes Will alternate and we’re open to suggestions!
