I am the accumulation of all my life experiences. Good, bad, and otherwise. My body retains all these memories. I have observed tensions and releases as my clients and I work through releasing the overlays of painful physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual experiences. This is the work I continue to receive and offer.
My goal is to diminish, if not fully eliminate my body’s trauma responses. Yes, I have trauma. And I am committed to doing my self-work so I can continue supporting others in their self-work.
Often, as I turn my attention to the COVID-19 vaccination, my mind is hesitant, yet understands the global predicament. But my body has an uncomfortable visceral response, there is an inner quaking deep within that I cannot ignore. I have been observing this for a while as my family and others ask if I have registered for the vaccination. As I observe my body respond, I am realizing that I have more work to do. My work is to navigate my mind and body to be on the same page. So, I am not adding uncertainty on top of past wounds. I continue working on removing my overlays, not adding to them.
To all those I care for and about, my vaccination is coming. Probably, Johnson & Johnson’s single shot.
