Healing Scars

Healing Scars

Scars heal on their own on the outside. Then they leave a mark, a reminder of nature's resilience and our ability to overcome pains

But sometimes scars arent on the outside and they also leave a mark. Whatever that mark is, we carry it with us consciously and other times unconsciously.

Scars Healing

Scars Healing

Ive always wondered if emotional scars can actually manifest physiologically. Being in the health and fitness field and connecting with friends and clients on that level gave me some insights.

For instance posture and body language, are they in any way rooted in our present and past states of mind? Also stress consumers in general, whats their relationship with food like? Does that mental relationship of consumption manifest on physical wellbeing? Social experiences? What about their relationship with themselves? Then i started seeing a pattern emerge.

Physical Vs Mental Healing

Physical Vs Mental Healing

An overweight client of mine was bullied in school. It was ugly. He eventually developed a tendency to slouch forward so his tshirt drops over his man boobs. 10 years later he has round shoulders, over developed glutes and tight hamstrings.

A year into a fitness program he is slim with tight abs. Eventhough he worked on all the physical misallignments, when not aware of his posture he resorted back to slouching. It took him another 2 years working on his self esteem with a therapist to finally correct his posture.

This is one example of the difference between mental and physical healing.

Ancestral Healing

Ancestral Healing

If u ever went to a life coach session or followed a guru on instagram you probably heard the term ancestral healing. The basic lesson is this; some emotional traumas are pick up as kids subconsciously. Imagine a 2 year old seeing a parent freaking out at the beach and never going for a swim. At that age parents are basically gods to us. How do u think this affects the child growing up?

Its very hard recollecting memories from that age, but is it possible that some of our fears have been passed down from our parents or even their parents? Just looking into this is a personal healing process.

The term healing is sometimes misused. From a holistic prespective, the process of healing is natural and healthy. The misuse of it comes when its used as a tool to make u think ur broken and require (place product here) to get fixed.

What Is Emotional Pain

What Is Emotional Pain

Are u breaking inside? Not the sharp edged break, but the resonance of what created it, the sudden magnitude of impact that made no sense to the senses, time feels slower, you became naturally numb, and possibly dumbed down to frozen.. but that was once, now ur left with cracklings, an echo of a distant past where the pain was so strong it created an actual void. The story of a feeling that transcends time, and is physically manifest in your reactions and how you experience the present.

Numbing Pain

Numbing Pain

But still... what is this pain you're so used to that you actively seek and sometimes find comfort in its warmth. Is it trully a warm cave of a once cold crack, or are you just numbing the pain by building camp fires in your head.. have you trully healed or are you just accepting the voids. Are they one and the same?

Your Pains Are Your Own

Your Pains Are Your Own

The story is in the story line, the role of fire in the plot of a crack becoming a warm cave in your mind, or the more mystical musical scale that forever loops. Which musical notes resonate with those base chords that once defined your world through pain?!

You are both the instrument and the musician and some of those pains are just notes along a scale of an emotional past. Serving as a reminder and a contrast from pleasures to help facilitate self-rewarding behavior, to augment self regulation and to enhance cognitive control, reducing rumination and demonstrating virtue.
