I made three versions of this poster so you can repost it in whichever way resonates most deeply with you.⁣ ⁣ Have you ever considered that your sensitive soul can feel the sadness of things, of the earth, of all your personal past hurts and the past hurts of others? It can feel the amount of unfelt grief and weeping needing to come forth.⁣ ⁣ Could it be that you are the valve? That you are simply in tune? We do not need to desensitize, we need to resensitize ourselves. The world has become numb.⁣ ⁣ Dear empath, dear man, women, human, however you identify — you are here to lead the way, to help people feel and heal their hearts.⁣ ⁣ You are not too sensitive because you feel. You were made to be sensitive so you could heal.⁣ ⁣ #epicinitiator #healing #trauma #polyvagaltheory #abuse #heal #reparenting #toxicpeople #toxicrelationships #triggered #personalgrowth #innerchildwork #innerchild #personaldevelopment #relationships #lifecoaching #abusiverelationship #earlychildhoodabuse #lifecoach #therapy #emotionalabuse #empath #seeker #trustissues #help #helpme #codependency #codependent #codependentnomore #abusiverelationships

Do you identify with the avoidant attachment style at all? You can...they operate on a spectrum. You can even be a more secure type with some avoidant characteristics or even anxious characteristics.⁣ ⁣ Let me know in the comments if and how this shows up for you. Have you ever known or dated someone with this attachment style?⁣ ⁣ #epicinitiator #healing #trauma #polyvagaltheory #abuse #heal #reparenting #toxicpeople #toxicrelationships #triggered #personalgrowth #innerchildwork #innerchild #personaldevelopment #relationships #lifecoaching #abusiverelationship #earlychildhoodabuse #lifecoach #therapy #emotionalabuse #j #seeker #trustissues #help #helpme #codependency #codependent #codependentnomore #abusiverelationships

Yes, I misspelled feelings and wrote feelins’ 🤣 Had a back alley brawl with my perfectionist self. I won. Soooo...it’s not exactly pretty, but here’s the chart I made with my video. It got kinda cut off — and here you can zoom in if you need. ⁣ ⁣ If you’d like to watch the video, it’s my latest on IGTV called the Trauma-Response-Resolution cycle.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #epicinitiator #healing #trauma #polyvagaltheory #abuse #heal #reparenting #toxicpeople #toxicrelationships #triggered #personalgrowth #innerchildwork #innerchild #personaldevelopment #relationships #lifecoaching #abusiverelationship #earlychildhoodabuse #lifecoach #therapy #emotionalabuse #j #seeker #trustissues #help #helpme #codependency #codependent #codependentnomore #abusiverelationships

This is my picture from Rebel Practitioner Live with @mastinkipp which was the most amazing seminar ever. Ever! ⁣ ⁣ I’m grateful to Mastin for taking pictures with all (100+) of us even though I’m pretty sure this is not his thing. 🤗⁣ ⁣ Thank you bringing together the most incredible community of humans that I’ve ever met. And thank you for helping us heal ourselves to we can heal the world. ❤️⁣ ⁣ Xoxo,⁣ @epicinitiator ⁣ ⁣ #epicinitiator #healing #trauma #polyvagaltheory #abuse #heal #reparenting #toxicpeople #toxicrelationships #triggered #personalgrowth #innerchildwork #innerchild #personaldevelopment #relationships #lifecoaching #abusiverelationship #earlychildhoodabuse #lifecoach #therapy #emotionalabuse #j #seeker #trustissues #help #helpme #codependency #codependent #codependentnomore #abusiverelationships

From Loving Bravely: “The great news about our stories is that we are always in charge of them. We are the authors! And, when we are willing to bravely explore how we are living within our life story, we open the possibility to change course. This doesn’t mean denying or minimizing painful events in the service of writing a fairy tale. But it may mean that the first step toward greater empowerment, authenticity, and wholeness is becoming aware that early events in your life led you to be cast in a role that no longer serves you.”⁣ ⁣ This is how all great change takes place: awareness and a willingness to do things differently. Being fed up is how you move up. ⁣ ⁣ Hope you’re all staying safe today.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #epicinitiator #healing #trauma #polyvagaltheory #rewriteyourstory #heal #reparenting #toxicpeople #toxicrelationships #triggered #personalgrowth #innerchildwork #innerchild #personaldevelopment #relationships #lifecoaching #abusiverelationship #earlychildhoodabuse #lifecoach #therapy #emotionalabuse #j #seeker #trustissues #help #helpme #codependency #codependent #codependentnomore #abusiverelationships

Relationships are deeply triggering and deeply confronting. They bring up allllll our shit.⁣ ⁣ Why? Because the stakes are high. Because we’re bonded. Because we’re attached and we’re vulnerable. ⁣ ⁣ Have you ever had a great time dating someone but the moment you really had deep feelings your stomach sank and you thought, “Well, fuck.”⁣ ⁣ That’s because you knew, a part of you knew that you were now vulnerable in a new way with this person. You’d come to expect them to be in your life, to support you and to be there with you when you laugh and cry. They’re important to you. They’re also massively important to your autonomic nervous system.⁣ ⁣ They’re the place you want to run to. They’re safe. You co-regulate (emotionally regulate) and have a warm connection. And it’s terrifying when it’s gone.⁣ ⁣ So, of course you fell. But you didn’t fail. And it’s normal for two people doing their best dealing with their underlying trauma to not know how to sustain a functional relationship. Being in a relationship is like a training ground inside a pressure cooker. You learn what doesn’t work, you heal and you try again.⁣ ⁣ You’ve got this. You’re doing a good job. Now, let’s focus on what you want to create. ⁣ ⁣ Work with me and let’s go deeper.

This is layered and nuanced, but, if we think of our emotional body as our inner child then how we treat ourselves is usually adopted from how our parents treated us. For example if you had a mother who was an alcoholic and whenever you needed her emotionally she seem to be drunk, you will likely drink when you feel emotional. You embody your mother and continue the cycle of abandonment.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #epicinitiator #healing #trauma #polyvagaltheory #abuse #heal #reparenting #toxicpeople #toxicrelationships #triggered #personalgrowth #innerchildwork #innerchild #personaldevelopment #relationships #lifecoaching #abusiverelationship #earlychildhoodabuse #lifecoach #therapy #emotionalabuse #j #seeker #trustissues #help #helpme #codependency #codependent #codependentnomore #abusiverelationships

Can’t believe this was just over a week ago already! I was at Mastin Kipp’s Rebel Practitioner Live in Scottsdale, Arizona. This is how I feel about learning about trauma, PolyVagal theory, our nervous system and how it impacts our lives and the lives of others.⁣ ⁣ Once I had more of an understanding of attachment theory, the autonomic nervous system and how this affects each and every one of us, I could start to see how unless we are cultivating awareness, we are at the mercy of our subconscious fears. So if you’re feeling stuck, angry, scared, sad, know it’s not your fault, your body is trying to protect you. And you can learn new ways of being. 100%. You can overcome. You can heal. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #epicinitiator #healing #trauma #polyvagaltheory #abuse #dancing #reparenting #toxicpeople #toxicrelationships #triggered #personalgrowth #innerchildwork #innerchild #personaldevelopment #relationships #lifecoaching #abusiverelationship #earlychildhoodabuse #lifecoach #therapy #emotionalabuse #journeyhome #seeker #trustissues #help #helpme #codependency #codependent #codependentnomore #abusiverelationships

Do you find yourself being a super loyal, super faithful partner only to find yourself being let down?⁣ ⁣ There’s a reason why you are inherently loyal and there’s a way you can still be loyal but have it work for as opposed to against you.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #epicinitiator #healing #trauma #polyvagaltheory #abuse #heal #reparenting #toxicpeople #toxicrelationships #triggered #personalgrowth #innerchildwork #innerchild #personaldevelopment #relationships #lifecoaching #abusiverelationship #earlychildhoodabuse #lifecoach #therapy #emotionalabuse #loyalty #seeker #trustissues #help #helpme #codependency #codependent #codependentnomore #abusiverelationships

How do you climb up out of an energetic hole?⁣ ⁣ 1) 🤔 Awareness of where you are on the energy ladder and how you feel is the first step.⁣ ⁣ 2) 🙃 Going deeper into the feelings to ask, “What am I doing, not doing or telling myself that is causing these emotions?”⁣ ⁣ 3) 🙄 Ask yourself if this thing you’re telling yourself or your reason for doing or not doing something is based on an absolute universal truth. Is it 1000% true that your fear will happen if you take action? ⁣ ⁣ 4) 😌 Sitting in non-judgment with these feelings and allowing them to speak to you. Usually an apology or self-forgiveness is needed. “I’m so sorry I’ve been telling you these things that cause you to panic when they’re not even true.”⁣ ⁣ 5) 🤭 You can ask to be shown where the first instance of this belief or behavior showed up and how old you were so you can excavate the truth from that experience.⁣ ⁣ 6) 🤓 The desire and willingness to take responsibility for generating these feelings is of utmost importance. Decide that you are willing to be open and learn what to do to take care of yourself.⁣ ⁣ 7) ✨😑✨Ask for guidance from your highest self that knows what the most loving action you can take for yourself is. ⁣ ⁣ 8) 😕🤝Ask for help. Sometimes it can be super hard and scary to take the action we know we need to take. That may be cutting out a toxic person from our lives once and for all. ⁣ ⁣ 9) 🥰 Take the loving action. Do it imperfectly. Do it while scared. While freaking out, while you’re wildly uncomfortable, but do it none the less. Be gentle and practice gentle self-care acknowledging the brave step you took to overcome your fears. ⁣ ⁣ 10) 🥳 Celebrate! You should actually feel so much better after taking that loving action that you want to celebrate! If you’re feeling that, you’ve moved up the ladder! Play is the opposite of trauma. When you’re feeling love and connection, that’s the polar opposite of fear and shame.⁣ ⁣ Rinse and repeat. You got this. And I’m here for you.⁣ ⁣ Xoxo,⁣ Angela ⁣ @epicinitiator ⁣ ⁣ Chart: Bruce Schneider founder of IPEC coaching 2006⁣

Should I Get Off My Meds? When people find out the kind of work that I do through my coaching, this question usually comes up.⁣ ⁣ What I have found is that if environment, relationships, emotional regulation and health are all carefully considered and pivoted towards health and healing, there will be no need for medication. But, sometimes it’s needed to survive and cope where it’s just not always possible to function without it. ⁣ ⁣ #epicinitiator #medication #trauma #polyvagaltheory #abuse #heal #reparenting #toxicpeople #toxicrelationships #triggered #personalgrowth #innerchildwork #meds #personaldevelopment #relationships #lifecoaching #abusiverelationship #earlychildhoodabuse #lifecoach #therapy #emotionalabuse #depressionandanxiety #seeker #trustissues #help #helpme #codependency #codependent #codependentnomore #abusiverelationships

This day started so early!!! Sorry I’ve been away, my loves!! This has been one of the best experiences of my life. If you ever get a chance to see or work with @mastinkipp and his team, I can’t even recommend it enough. ⁣ ⁣ I’m so tired but soooo happy and excited to bring everything I’ve learned into my practice and to help others with it (and help me help them). I can’t imagine not having done this seminar. One of the most amazing groups of people I have ever met.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #epicinitiator #healing #trauma #polyvagaltheory #abuse #heal #reparenting #toxicpeople #toxicrelationships #triggered #personalgrowth #innerchildwork #innerchild #personaldevelopment #relationships #lifecoaching #abusiverelationship #earlychildhoodabuse #lifecoach #therapy #emotionalabuse #j #seeker #trustissues #help #helpme #codependency #codependent #codependentnomore #abusiverelationships⁣ ⁣

Ok, the real reason I’m at the pool late is not that I’m just a rebel rule-breaker, but that I’m here at a 12-hour seminar, so we get out AFTER the pool is closed and I have no tub in my room and I’m basically a mermaid. I need a tub 😊⁣ ⁣ Ok, so back to the real topic. You may consciously know you deserve better, but below your neck, you don’t. Your body still thinks it’s a child, so how do we move that awareness that we deserve better to all of us? Keep moving towards the fear and discomfort WHILE staying safe. It’s a balance and you’ll need support. I got you. ❤️⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #epicinitiator #healing #trauma #polyvagaltheory #abuse #heal #reparenting #toxicpeople #toxicrelationships #triggered #personalgrowth #innerchildwork #innerchild #personaldevelopment #relationships #lifecoaching #abusiverelationship #earlychildhoodabuse #lifecoach #therapy #emotionalabuse #j #seeker #trustissues #help #helpme #codependency #codependent #codependentnomore #abusiverelationships

Sooo...have you ever had the experience of attracting a partner that was the opposite of what your parents were and it wasn’t necessarily a good thing?⁣ ⁣ So here, I wanted to talk a little bit more about what I covered in last night’s video — Why We Attract Partner’s That Remind Us of Mom and Dad...which was trying to choose the opposite or not be like our parents and how this isn’t getting you what you want and why.⁣ ⁣ Anyway, I’m not 100% sure I succeeded in explaining but maybe it’ll help? ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #epicinitiator #healing #trauma #polyvagaltheory #abuse #heal #reparenting #toxicpeople #toxicrelationships #triggered #personalgrowth #innerchildwork #innerchild #personaldevelopment #relationships #lifecoaching #abusiverelationship #earlychildhoodabuse #lifecoach #therapy #emotionalabuse #j #seeker #trustissues #help #helpme #codependency #codependent #codependentnomore #abusiverelationships

Do we secretly, unconsciously have a thing for our parents? 🤔⁣ ⁣ It’s kind of like when you say one thing, but you mean you’re mother. God, I love that Freudian joke. No, Freud may have observed something but I think it has wayyyy different and more easily explainable (well, maybe not that easy to explain) origins.⁣ ⁣ #epicinitiator #healing #trauma #polyvagaltheory #abuse #heal #reparenting #toxicpeople #toxicrelationships #triggered #personalgrowth #innerchildwork #innerchild #personaldevelopment #relationships #lifecoaching #abusiverelationship #earlychildhoodabuse #lifecoach #therapy #emotionalabuse #journey #seeker #trustissues #help #helpme #codependency #codependent #codependentnomore #abusiverelationships

Such beautiful wisdom that came from her higher guidance. ⁣ ⁣ Love is all around us — sometimes it’s as simple as letting it in, taking off our armor and laying down the protections that guard our heart.⁣ ⁣ Inner wisdom can be so very poetic. Other times it’s like, “Stop doing that. Do this instead.” ⁣ ⁣ Have an awesome day!⁣ @epicinitiator ⁣ ⁣ epicinitiator #healing #trauma #polyvagaltheory #abuse #heal #reparenting #toxicpeople #toxicrelationships #triggered #personalgrowth #innerchildwork #innerchild #personaldevelopment #relationships #lifecoaching #abusiverelationship #earlychildhoodabuse #lifecoach #therapy #emotionalabuse #j #seeker #trustissues #help #helpme #codependency #codependent #codependentnomore #abusiverelationships
