Giving words to what is happening in the body is something I find very powerful.
At the site of an old injury for example the muscles contract like armour to protect
They also hold onto the emotions associated with that injury. It could be shame, guilt or anger
Unaware that the injury deep inside has healed and all is left is the armour protecting scar tissue that needs to stretch and integrate back to the body
Words like “armour”
Defend and protect help us to reconnect with what is happening inside
Then change our response
What if we spoke to that injury and told it it was
“Safe” to open and “flow” and the offer the emotions forgiveness and love?
I have seen so many times with my own eyes how my clients respond to this
It is so healing to connect again ❤️
