Body Awareness and Trauma

When life or death interrupt what you know in your body, how can you move with it and through it so you can see your sovereignty? – Gail Dickert

I’ve known Gail for quite a few years now, and as close as our friendship has become, we have never met in person.

That is the beauty of online connection.

Back around 2010 or 2011 she and I met as annonymous moderators of two facebook pages, both helping each other reach an online audience to spread our messages.

In those early years, neither of us knowing we shared a deeper connection and understanding of each other as childhood trauma survivors.

Over the years, I have had the honor of watching her achieve personal goals of publication, her wonderful marriage, and eventually the beginning of her family.

Three years ago I put up a post on Facebook alluding to a counselor I was going to start seeing who specialized in helping adults with a history of childhood sexual abuse. At the time, no one in my immediate life knew about the abuse I went through as a child.

As a survivor herself with a published book on trauma healing and a few years head start on me regarding trauma recovery – she immediately reached out and sent me a copy of her book with a personal message inside. A book that is now weathered and torn, highlighted, and cried on called Recovery in Real Time: A Trauma Survivor’s Anti-Workbook. A book I still look through and lean on.

Today she shared the above post with me and it resonated so deeply I had to share. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

I am continuously grateful the universe has crossed her path with mine.

Please – Check out her website!!
