essentil oils for trauma release- black spruce






I can think of several times in my life where something happened TO me. I felt shocked, disassociated, and completely fled my body. These were  times of extreme circumstance created a pattern of escapism. Anytime I felt life was out of my control, I wanted to go numb and abandon ship (my body).

When I felt overwhelmed, I felt powerless- so I would look for a way to stop feeling.  Here's some new tools to help move through the feelings, release the emotions from your physical body, and CONNECT with your higher power. The power of spiritual awareness and prayer will activate your healing. I use plant medicine (essential oils) to focus my brain back into the moment, and back into my body- instead of escaping and staying in the loop of emotion.
