How I Healed From Sexual, Psychological and Physical Trauma – Part 1 of 3

Healing. It’s not linear, rarely logical and definitely has its own timeline. My personal philosophy about healing trauma is that we are – each of us – far more capable of self-healing (even from horrific abuse, neglect and acute traumas) than we’ve been led to believe. 

There’s a pervasive belief in modern society that if you are “trauma” (this word has been stigmatized, dramatized and often made to be something other than it is) you must need the help of someone qualified to address such scary stuff. 

I totally disagree. 

While I firmly believe we need each other, and we all need help sometimes, I think we’ve swung the pendulum way too far in the direction of putting doctors and “professionals” on pedestals and believing they know more about us than we do; or, that they know what’s best for us, better than we do. 

We’ve lost touch with our internal compass, our innate wisdom, our instincts for self-retrieval, self-healing, self-empowerment. 

This is my story, and it is not meant as advice on how to heal your trauma. 

If my story can offer a different viewpoint, a different path up the same mountain, or help you feel less alone, more empowered…then – AMAZING. 

I’m not sharing this for myself. I’m sharing this story because I think our world needs more stories of self-healing, and fewer stories about depression, anxiety and suicide statistics, or how ACES (Adverse Childhood Experiences) decrease lifespan and increase the likelihood of illness and disease. 

Until we “normalize” trauma (and understand that it’s the human condition we’re talking about, not just a small segment of the population to be sequestered and treated differently), we will continue to create traumatic experiences through our parenting, friendships, partnerships and community. 

Please share your thoughts below, and if you’re so called – please share some of your trauma healing story (or your trauma story). If you have a YouTube channel or blog where you tell these kinds of stories, please link to them!

Thank you for watching! 

Stay tuned for Parts II and III.

    Thank you for your story .

    • Hi Petra, unfortunately I can’t make myself available to everyone online by voice app or PM. Maybe you could try typing your story into google’s language transcriber to English? Just a thought. I encourage sharing on my blog posts and YouTube videos so others can benefit and we can all feel less alone. I simply can’t help everyone privately for free. I hope you understand. I’d love for you to share your story, if you can find a way!

  • Cheryl says:

    I would like to know how to start the process of fascia to heal emotional pain. I live in Milwaukee Wisconsin.Can you direct me? Thank you

    • Hi Cheryl, unfortunately I can’t recommend anyone that could help you directly in Wisconsin. I encourage you to explore my blog and find the posts about trauma, trapped emotions in the body and nervous system patterns – those are the keywords I would use to start this journey. Those blog posts will give you a good idea of where to start at home, befriending your own body/fascia and seeing where it leads you. Please keep me/us posted, thanks for being here and braving this work!

    Hi Elisha,

    Thank you so much for this. All I can say is, wow! You articulated so many things that I have felt, but have been unable to articulate myself. I believe your wisdom to be a gift, and what makes you such an extraordinary healer. I believe that self-healing leads to TRUE healing as we fully take control and come to understand ourselves in the deepest sense. I can’t wait to see where you take this next. I know there was a reason that I was drawn to you and your work in the first place, and I only wish that you lived closer. Keep doing what you are doing!! Your genuine authenticity is absolutely beautiful.

    • Hey Julie – so good to hear from you! Thanks for sharing your comments here, it means a lot. I also feel curious to know more, and hope our paths cross again soon. Much love to you!
