Courageously move forward and into every feeling you ever were unable to feel due to oppressive circumstances. Feel them, let go and be free. Our nervous systems have recorded each and every instance of repression and denial. We have a store of tension from our ancestors as well.

- Feeling the feeling
- Will these symptoms ever go away? (chronic illness and psychiatric drug withdrawal syndrome)
- Forms of dissociation are common to all human beings

I am becoming healthy so that I can deeply meet the developing unraveling of the world. A very serious and sobering coming into my own.

all of life, the good the bad the ugly and right now the political chaos that is the united states is writ upon our bodies….LISTEN
Trauma embeds itself…both intergenerationally (via epigenetics) and by whatever we incur in this life-time as individuals. When we unravel it we heal.
This is the reason shamanistic traditions work with the ancestors…they have understood the nature of epigenetics for millennia.
As it continues to heal my nervous system is under constant pressure. It’s exciting and daunting and difficult and frustrating, all
This is actually a process of incremental relaxation, brought about through many different means in synergistic alchemy (EVERYTHING MATTERS)…the nervous system was blown out to an extreme with the pharmaceutical brain injury…this is a process and practice that takes time. With time and patience and a willingness to pay attention to what is presented to me on a daily basis and then responding with love and kindness to the body, as if it were an infant, I continue to heal.
