How to Recover from Abuse

by Sophie on June 5, 2012

Experiencing life in a human body is all about riding the waves, the ups and down,  the ebb and flow, coming and going, day and night, rest and activity, with and without.

One of the (many) problems with abuse is that trauma freezes us at one end of the spectrum, usually the “without” end of the spectrum. Without food, without self respect, without safety, without love, without shelter.  As a result of which we CONSCIOUSLY spend a lot of time at the OPPOSITE end of the spectrum: with A LOT of food,  A LOT of attention, A LOT of security in our house,  A LOT of love (or sex), A LOT of house (ever wondered why in the USA, the land created by the poor, huddled masses, the wretched,  the homeless of the world, so many are obese and want a huuuuuuuge house?)

The opposite is also true: when we had too much of something and that too much was associated with pain, we consciously shun that ‘thing’ as an adult. Too much sexual attention can lead to its opposite of not wanting to engage in our sexual power, too much money can lead to not wanting to engage with money or take responsibility for it, too much responsibility at an early age can make us behave like kids long into adulthood, etc.

If you really think about it, too much and not enough are the same. Too much sexual attention in childhood is not enough love, respect and boundaries. Too much poverty is not enough safety and comfort.  So abuse, whether too much or not enough, is about extremes. Abuse is about being permanently stuck at the crest of the wave or at the bottom of the wave.

Abuse robs us of the human experience of ebb and flow, up and down, the calm rest of night and the exciting work of day, the tenderness of companionship and the heightened pleasure of togetherness, the security of money saved and the excitement of money spent.

Abuse robs us of experiencing balance in motion. It robs us of the fluidity of life, of knowing that this too shall pass.

What is the answer? Dissolve the bad memories. Remove the blocks. Ask for, pray for, receive and download the energies of human experience that you are missing. Practice balance in motion. Until you can come and go, work and rest, eat and fast, dance and be still, sing and be quiet. Until you can enjoy riding the waves again or until you can learn to ride the waves for the first time in this  life time.

And yes, I do think that doing energy work is the best ad fastest way to recover from abuse. You can learn how to do exactly that when you join my course “Awaken the Healer Within” that starts next September. Registration is open and you can register here.
