Thank you Laura for sharing what I feel to be a very important key point to help support everyone to the next experience of life that they desire to be having. This video from Paige Bartholomew is a valuable resource to help you work deeply in order to fully release and heal, as well as understand why it is you aren’t and are continually being activated regardless of the spiritual work you ARE doing.
There isn’t a lot of teaching out there that addresses how to work with all your levels in order to then integrate. Positive affirmations are only a piece of the puzzle as they address only the mental and suppress the rest of what you are feeling in your body and emotions, which can cause confusion inwardly that will show up later.
Paige does a great job in simplifying things and provides a good place to begin this deeper level of healing. I LOVE this quote of hers: “The important thing to remember is that we can’t skip over the levels. We can’t just go straight to the unity level and pray and meditate all day long and expect that we’re gonna be healed, because what happens is that people who meditate a lot will be fantastic when they’re meditating or when they’ve been praying for three hours. But as soon as they go back out into the world, they become activated in their body and they don’t know why. And there’s this subtle message inside of us that says ‘What’s wrong with me? Why am I not getting better? I’m doing all this spiritual stuff.”
It becomes a destructive spiral of self-judgment. As Paige explains, the reason you’re not getting any better is because “you can’t just focus on the unity and then expect the body and the heart to know the truth about themselves. We have to work with the level of the body, the level of the heart, the level of the soul, and we heal on every level.”
Integrating means lovingly recognizing, honoring, working with, healing and bringing together each level. Going beyond the affirmations and understanding what the feelings that prompted the affirmations have to share and teach us and learning how to lovingly support and understand their process. In doing so, you also learn compassion for others, as well as realize that you are loved in all of your wholeness at every step of the journey.
Today, I’m posting a valuable video from Paige Bartholomew addressing neurological and body trauma. As individuals (and as a culture) we have so much trauma embedded in our bodies, hearts and nervous systems that it often feels difficult to remain in body due to the pain. So many addictions, distractions and the ability to detach from instead of help to heal our world, stem from this desire to avoid re-triggered trauma.
In this video, Paige gives some simple techniques to help release the original trauma from the body so that we don’t immediately go back into that trauma every time we experience a trigger. She shares techniques for individuals, but “As Within, So Without.” The more we as individuals address our own, individual wounds, the more we heal our world.
At first, Paige keeps us focused on the body, rather than the story. “Whatever it is you feel, is the…
