“Being frightened means that you live in a body that is always on guard.”
– Bessel van der Kolk, The Body Keeps The Score
Anxiety and overwhelming stress are signals from our internal system that things have gone too far, built up over many years. Our thoughts race, our lives run on autopilot. Our mind and body “appear” to have a life of their own, disconnected from us.
Some examples of our experiences may include racing/unwanted thoughts, restlessness, imagining the worst, tight routines, social anxiety, fear of disappointing others, loss of creativity/adventure, anxious sleep, self-doubt.
Beneath these experiences are unresolved emotional charges that our bodies and unconscious mind carry. It shows up physically through panic/shallow breathing, increased heartrate, vigilant eyes, clicking jaw, frequent frowning, tight chest or solar plexus, hunched or withdrawn posture.
All of the above are our body’s survival strategy it had learned and these imprints live deep in our emotional, mental and physical landscape.
Here at Radiant Roots, we take a holistic approach towards healing that involves befriending the nervous system, mind, heart, and Self.
