Self regulation mini course

I like to refer to "Triggers" as internal "Metal detectors" that discover and locate memories. Once I found safety, my metal detectors used to go off constantly. It started with one or two, and then seasons and upon seasons of unfurling. It has taken years, and lots of privileged resources, to learn how to integrate not only the memories I found, but my ability to navigate the pain that unfurls in the discovery of them.

The Discovery - The Metal Beneath the Surface

The Discourse - The Exasperation, Exhaustion, and Pain

The Pause - The Internal Acknowledgement

The Permission - The Slow Reclamation of Balance Without Denying the Discourse

The Belief - The Kneeling Down Beside Yourself

Compassion workbook

I believe that the shame, blame, guilt, and tenderness around developing internal compassion stems from not knowing what compassion looks like for us as autonomous individuals. When we have the privilege to wade into the messy waters of healing, we are most often unaware that things (emotions, experiences, relationships, roles) are not fixed and demanded. We tend to enter into life, in various ways, in a patterned state that allows us to maintain the roles we held in our trauma(s) because that's all we know.  

Life is/will always be fluid, rather than fixed. That's scary because it means we cannot control it, no matter how much we prepare for it. The chaos of trauma feels safe because even though it too is out of our control, humans are adept at surviving. That means survival ends up becoming our anchor and will take precedence over everything. That's okay. It's valid. It's allowed.

We are absolutely capable of extending sustainable, authentic, genuine, and messy compassion to ourselves. Just like I extended to you above. Our residual impacts are real, and I believe them.

Throughout this workbook, we are going to unpack and re-learn the cues of our own mind, body, and soul (including our own survival cues) and how to be compassionate towards them.

Our trauma(s) have demanded so much attention that we end up in roles that are very much covered with barbed wire. The noise, the fear, the panic, the pain so loud that staying in our fixed role(s) of caretaker, fixer, superhero, hyper-independent and isolated "strongest person in the room" feels safer. Many also stay in the role of victim because they lack the privilege to do otherwise, but that's a topic for another time.

As we begin to slowly reclaim these roles, shifting slowly from shame into compassion, we will be able to source our own freedom. A freedom that allows us to learn how we can simultaneously feel unsafe, and be safe. Grieve and hold boundaries in our sadness. Rage and sift through what lies beneath our fire.

Live again.
