Working with repressed trauma and missing memories

You might not remember…but your body remembers.

Your body still carries the impact of events that happened in your past. And you can experience shifts in how your body carries your past, even if you do not remember what happened.

The way “in” will be found in your present life.

What in your present life is difficult, painful, restricted, in conflict? You can follow the present difficulty back to its roots, by sensing in your body.

  • Are you extra-sensitive to rejection?
  • Is it hard to trust other people?
  • Do you quit a project when it gets “too hard?”
  • Do you get taken over by waves of anger?

These are just a few of the possibilities!

If you spend time doing Inner Relationship Focusing with something that hurts in your life right now, and build an inner atmosphere of trust, respect, and safety, your process will take you back to the earlier relevant time… when the time is right for that.

Your patience gets rewarded. Healing can happen without actual memories if you follow the track of the body.

Embracing what you feel is the beginning of a radically different life, Focusing shows you the practices and processes you can use to accept everything you feel, even the tough stuff.
