Survivor Flashes

Having flashes is common for survivors.
And they are different than ordinary memories.
They often focus on common objects that would usually float by without much notice.
But this time, in a certain light or a specific time of day and circumstance, a piece of our abuse grabs our attention.
It stuns.
It feels exceptionally real and vivid.
It disturbs.
It instantaneously brings up emotions that feel out of place.

Smiles

We are inclined to think of smiles as responses. They seem to bubble up when our five senses are tickled or emergy as a thought, feeling, or belief pleases us.

In creating changes using energy, we can call on our smiles. They can be flashlights in foggy moments.

Choose to smile at any time and think about the shift you are inviting in your life. Focus on the desire you are holding. You will see new possibilities that align with your smile.

Uncommon Treasures

In their healing quest, surivors of abuse are rewarded with uncommon treasures that are as valuable as any hero's bounty.

We are likely to find unknown talents, easy laughter, spontaneity, relaxation, relationships that celebrate our spirit, freedom to express, desire to explore, reunivenated health, ability to complete what we began. It's the everyday things that others take for granted that we lost in our challenge to build lives with deep wounds.

Weeds of Our Abuse

 

If you keep whacking at the leaves of an established weed, it might seem like you have taken care of it, but the root beneath the surface is getting stronger every day. And you can be sure the weed will rise again.

It will grow robustly in the right conditions... just like your anger when you feel powerless and abused once more.
