One Woke Mama – Episode 041 – How to resource yourself and hold space for emotions.
When we are triggered, by our children, our work, partner, or just by LIFE, working through somatic practice – working with your body – can be a powerful way to show up in the moment as you need to.
Body-based resourcing will allow you to stay present with what is, to understand and even heal your triggers. There are many moments in our day when we are shown something within us, a wound, a past story, that is ready to be seen, felt and released.
This happens to me so often with my children, through my relationships and even clients. I see triggers as beautiful opportunities to continue my own healing and therefore awakening.
But how to actually BE with what is? That’s when being with our body, harnessing simple somatic practices and moving through those triggers is potent work.I share some simple and powerful practices to help you stay resourced during such triggered moments.
In this episode I also dive into what it looks like and why we want to hold space for emotions – not just our children’s emotions but ours as well.
The next step after – we have cognitive awareness and shifts, after we consciously awaken to our blocks, shadows and triggers – is to allow healing to happen via our body.
Our body KNOWS – it keeps the score of past pain and experiences, of wounds and shadows. It holds on to them – as a way to protect us, but ultimately can lead to so much disease and pain.
So when we reach the stage where we are ready to feeling into our body and release FROM our body, this will be a profound shift in your journey of healing, growth, awakening and consciousness.
