Transform Your Trauma
with Veronica Tioicha
Shaman in Orange County
It is time to accept every part of who you are.
I understand that you might be a victim. I believe you did not choose to be where you are. Not only that, I realize that “get happy” is not a solution to your unresolved pain. Most importantly, I know that the trauma you have lived through is not a reflection of you as a human being.
Spiritual practices telling you to rise above your pain and discover a heightened sense of self can result in years of unresolved pain, buried beneath a mountain of denial, self-doubt, and avoidance techniques. These practices are incapable of getting into the deeper, often suppressed worlds of your subconscious – places which are necessary to uncover lifelong healing.
Honoring the fucked up shit your soul holds on to does not always mean letting it go. Sometimes it stays. Sometimes, it lives with us forever. Honoring your pain does not mean “this pain does not define me” because it does. What we should be discovering is “how can this pain define me in the best way possible? How can this pain become an asset? How can I make my darkness dance with my light?”
There are no easy solutions.
This is not for everyone. This is a process.
A process of delving deep into your unresolved pain and trauma, and turning it into a source of strength. Do not let your past minimize you. Everything you have lived through, everything that is holding you back, is waiting to be owned and transformed into something that will make you powerful beyond belief. Embrace your hurt and become a force to be reckoned with.
