Trauma-Informed Energetic Healing- an ongoing project
Hello my loves!
This post is to give you a rundown of an ongoing project that I have been dreaming of doing for about a year- an approach to energy healing which is curated and crafted with an awareness of trauma.
I'm currently in the phase of gathering information about energetic healing practices and practitioners, and I have created a questionnaire! (Oh my giddy researcher heart!)
I have done my very best to make sure that even the questions in the questionnaire are trauma-informed- which means they are designed to be as gentle as possible while discussing potentially difficult topics.
The ultimate purpose of this information, (once it is gathered) is to give me the best foundation when designing the teachings.
So what are the questions like? First I ask things like what modality you practice and how long you've been practicing, what inspired you to pursue energetic healing as a practice, and your experiences with trauma both as a practitioner and as an individual. There are questions about beliefs that are present in spiritual culture, and how you engage with them.
Every practitioner is different and unique, and I am here to observe and understand. While I ask about names of teachers, the questionnaire is not centered on your name or revealing details of your practice. This questionnaire exists solely for the purpose of developing the best possible program for those that are interested.... And I'm not going to try and sell you anything (but hey if you're interested, I won't turn you down.)
What is trauma-informed care?
Trauma-informed care understands that sometimes in making efforts to assist those who have experienced trauma we can inadvertently traumatize them again- so the entire approach to care is one that is consciously and mindfully designed to minimize harm.
Trauma-informed care also understands that sometimes, there is trauma involved in being a healer. That we are human also, and as empathic human beings, holding space for survivors can bring up in us difficult emotional responses- healers are survivors too. Trauma-informed care understands that every single person involved, deserves respect dignity and love.
Trauma-informed care is designed to minimize the harm that many cultural approaches have caused, in conventional and alternative modalities.
Trauma Informed Energetic Healing
Energetic healing often begins long before the session actually starts.
From the moment that a person reaches out to me, I am energetically holding space for the transformative process of healing- which means that the invitation to heal begins at the moment that someone reaches out to me.
The beautiful thing about energetic modalities is the understanding that every interaction we have with one another is an opportunity for encouragement and healing and the cultivation of balance.
And energy is a constant interaction. There is not one moment of our existence that we are not influencing or being influenced, energetically.
According to specific spiritual traditions, an enlightened and conscious human being is evidenced by the fact that they bring healing to every person they meet, even if they aren't trying.
I firmly believe the trauma informed care is a grounded energetic practice which brings us closer to what it means to be a truly conscious healer.
To be one who does no harm.
If you are interested in participating:
Please send me a message either through Instagram, Facebook, or right here on my website!
While it is possible for me to send you the questionnaire through Google forms, I'm much prefer being able to do either a video or a phone call. This is for several reasons- first it is so that I can facilitate a caring and safe environment for whatever comes up during our interview. Secondly, if I have any questions regarding clarification of your answers they can be answered during the interview.
Together we can work out a time that will work for both of us and you can expect about an hour to an hour and a half of a time investment.
I want to thank you for your time, and you're interest in participating, white and for the knowledge and experience that you are willing to share.
And thank you for being a healer.
