One of the most haunting things I’ve ever heard was, “No one will want you after this.” The guy that abused me my senior year of college said this to me after a life-changing violent moment. I’ll never forget it. I carried that phrase in my head, in my heart, and deep down in my soul. It’s led to a lot of self-destruction and self-sabotage. It’s been 7 years since then. • • •There’s a meme floating around the internet that says that all your cells replace themselves in 7 years. True or not, I’ve realized it’s been 7 years since I escaped him. It’s been 7 years since I limped into work with a swollen face, he stalked me online and in real life, and I hid in my parents’ home after leaving him. It’s been 7 years since he tried to run me off the road after leaving work, nearly killed me several times, and kept me completely under his control. It’s been 7 years of being haunted by those memories, but now I have a new body that doesn’t know him. Seven years have passed, and I am free. •🌰🌱🌻✨ •@noirememoir

Making this mindset shift is so huge especially for those of us who have been abused. As a survivor of emotional and sexual abuse it is so easy for that abuse to effect so many parts of my life. For the longest time I felt like the man who raped me was constantly effecting my life even after not seeing him for years. It was beyond frustrating!!! One of the biggest things that helped me shift my mindset was forgiveness. Forgiving myself and forgiving him. Once I was able to forgive I was able to finally and totally shift out of my victim mentality. And as a result take my power back and dissolve any power I felt he still had over me and my life. So if you are struggling and want to take your power back I highly suggest forgiveness. Start with yourself and then work on forgiving your abusers. I believe in you! You got this! You can heal!

HERE IT IS! This workshop is now available for purchase on my website! This is so many years in the making y'all. I am so excited to finally be blending my training as a sex & kink educator with somatic work. I can't even tell you how many body based therapy trainings I have sat in thinking "this shit is so kinky!!!" and now, here it is, all together. This workshop will cover Kink 101, the healing potential of play & d/s relationships, and what is literally happening/healing (physically and emotionally) inside of us during these transformative experiences using theories & ideas from the Polyvagal Theory, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and Somatic Experiencing. All are welcome, not just therapists or kinky people. Everyone. If you are a QTPOC, working class, SWer, disabled/chronically ill person who needs a sliding scale rate let me know, I want this to be accessible for all. EEEEEE!!!!!!

I painted this for Ryan Lunn, it’s the cover for his Album : We Are Co-Pilots Ryan and I hang this one in our bedroom. Reminds us who we are and where we come from and most importantly where we are going. This shows the seasons, the healing continuum and the spirit healing. Ryans music also follows the seasons and the healing continuum. This was the first painting I did for him and it won’t be the last.. #artsy #artistoninstagram #artistic #paintings #medicinewoman #medicinewheel #nativehealing #addiction #healingfromtrauma #healingfromabuse #addictionrecovery #colorwheel #RyanLunn #acrylicpainting #canadianartist #canadianpainter #courage #singersongwriter #originalmusic #art #couplesworktogether #power #love #loveart #powercouples #bedroom #bedroomdecor #hubby #lovehim #lovers

"Prior to very recently, mental health awareness in sports was nonexistent. No athlete or anyone associated with athletes dared to talk about mental health. Athletes are gaining the courage to become open with their struggles. Athletes are even taking it upon themselves to pen articles for the public to read about their personal battles with mental health, addiction, and trauma."

Just because you can't see the blood doesn't mean the pain isn't real. . -not all wounds are visible. . . (swipe to see a painting time-lapse video) . Inspired by @ellysmallwood ❤️ I started supporting her on Patreon a couple of months ago and I'm completely obsessed with her instructional videos.

What has been the most important thing you've learned from another survivor that could be applied to your own healing?⁣ ⁣ Because I was raised to go at it alone emotionally, I never in a million years thought that the missing piece of my own personal healing journey was the antithesis of going at it alone….a community of other people. Other survivors. Other stories. Other perspectives. Shared experiences. People who really understood what I was going through. Knowing that I wasn’t alone and other people were experiencing the same thoughts, feelings and treatment that I was.⁣ ⁣ In the past year, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing so many survivors. My goal with SurvivorTribe was to provide a service that was helpful for survivors in their healing journey. I never imagined how impactful it would be for mine. ⁣ ⁣ Here are a few things that I learned from the survivors I’ve met in the past year:⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁃I have been experiencing a heavy level of disassociation! I knew what I was experiencing but didn’t have a word to define it yet.⁣ ⁣ ⁃There’s an enabler handbook. Just joking, of course, but I wouldn’t be surprised. There are so many consistencies with what enablers say to survivors.⁣ ⁣ ⁃I’m not alone. There are consistencies in the ways we feel, think and with what we have experienced. I didn’t feel so alone anymore.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ I have been through therapy and thought that I had made a lot of progress over the years but then I found community and realized how little I actually knew. The amount of progress I’ve made in the past 6 months far exceeds the progress I made in the 6 years prior to that.⁣ ⁣ What has been the most important thing you've learned from another survivor that could be applied to your own healing?

INFJs represent the extreme side of the sensitivity scale. ✨ . Artistic, complex, contradictory, wildly empathic: these have always been my favorite things about people because they make sense to me. . People (and no judgement✨) content to rest in their own banality do not. . This is one of about a gazillion examples of how growing up ✨different plays with our minds. The older we get the less sense any of it makes until that final trauma, that dividing line, the moment after which nothing is ever the same when we start researching, stumble onto the details of our quirky personality type and finally feel seen + less alone in the universe, maybe for the first time ever. . It’s completely amazing how common this journey is for people like us. 💫 . Did you know that INFJs represent over 90% of the population struggling to recover from narcissistic abuse?✨ . That’s insane, but . . . after awhile? Once we ✨know some things? It starts making so much sense. . One of the major themes to emerge from Dark Pretty is self-forgiveness. For so much beyond our control, but especially the fact that for INFJs, the experience of narcissistic abuse feels achingly ✨familiar to things we’ve been sitting with quietly all our lives: only feeling incrementally seen by people who claim to love us, confusion about what’s real vs. what we ✨sense, even the gaslighting aspect of being told we’re wrong, time and time again, for things we really ✨think we know. . If you’re a deeply sensitive soul who has never been touched by this kind of trauma, that’s so wonderful. . But if bells are going off as you read this, if your deeply complex personality has led you into some dark places you’re still struggling to make sense of, I wrote this book for myself, but I also wrote it for you. ✨ . I’ll be going live soon to talk about it, how it’s a healing guide as much as a personal memoir, to expound on all the marvelous support I have coming out around it. 💖 I’m really so excited. It launches digitally December 17 (. . !✨); you can pre-order your copy from the link in my bio. . In the meantime: see you. think you’re amazing. know you can get beyond this. sending you light. ☀️
