Take this quick visual review on epigenetics:
(note: I am including links at the bottom for further reading if you like that kind of thing)
So your epigenetic traumas added to the client’s epigenetic traumas can create the possibility of volatility in the birth space.
That is where triggers come in. Triggers can be from something you have experienced first-hand OR from epigenetic traumas. It takes lots of energy to truly serve a woman who is dealing with things that trigger you. And if she is triggered, too? Very tricky to feel like you have the energy to handle it!
Add to that your commitment to serving at the highest level possible. A noble calling.
After a while serving at your highest level and juggling your family commitments looks something like this:
And you can see why healing your epigenetic building blocks is important.
You need to be able to serve without triggers and serve in ways that do not take from YOUR reserves to do it. Sounds difficult?
To get started, know that this is a multi-level issue, often going back multiple generations. The good news is that you do NOT have to know what the damages are/were in order to heal them. Your body knows what to do, and you need to release the energy tied up in your traumas so you can heal those traumas.
Much like a fingernail that has been ‘bitten down’ it may appear there is no growth, that you have to DO something to grow longer nails. The truth is you need only give your body the resources it needs to let it do what it already does. It heals. Time can heal nails, and hearts, and epigenetic traumas. You can also make progress MUCH faster (in this lifetime!) by supporting your body as it does what it naturally does.
For your nails to heal you need to:
- stop biting them off
- protect them from harsh elements
- provide nutrients to support their growth
- exercise your fingers to increase blood flow (increased blood flow=faster healing)
For your body to heal so that you can be the most present most non-triggered birthworker EVER you need to:
- stop being triggered
- protect your personal energy
- provide ways for your body’s energy to do what it does
- move and keep your blood flowing as your natural healing does what it does
You can do these things in many different ways – and I want you to have a system that supports you as you do it. Consider it nail polish, acrylic tips, gloves, and mega-vitamins to heal your traumas.
