Survive and Thrive after Trauma
Hello from Susan Cowe, Rowlands Castle, Hampshire, UK. I have just published my first book Survive and Thrive after Trauma. The book I NEVER dreamt I would write.
I work in Emotional and Energy Healing. My therapy work is based on Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Matrix Reimprinting.
The book describes how my married life was steamrollered by my husband’s alcohol dependency, divorce papers and death. I include a Resources Section which shares emotional healing tools and gives explanation to how you may really feel, not how you think you feel. There are positive learnings and messages from others now thriving after a variety of trauma.
When I first trained in EFT I was surprised by this fact
90 -95% of our physical pain and disease is a result of emotional pain held in the body.
That is huge. I believe that some of us do not appreciate that negative beliefs, unpleasant memories and emotions need to be cleared and released so that we have space for the good things in life to come our way. We may not appreciate that we can choose to clear and let go of emotional baggage. I wonder if you lovely Australians with your laid back attitude and lifestyle perhaps find it easier to let go. Or is that just a misconception some Poms have? I am Scottish so please do not include me with such a generalisation :-). So many beliefs can get us into all sorts of trouble.
Life can set us some difficult challenges however we can learn from them and move on. If we can recognise a need to rest, change an action, take time out to smell the roses, the benefits can be surprising. Another statement I like is
If one person smiles, is kinder or just helpful to someone else that feeling and intention is passed on naturally to countless others.
I work with clients to re-ignite real confidence from within; the confidence which may have been battered and bashed around a bit. I will soon be studying Meta Medicine: healing the physical body by resolving past emotional trauma.
I work strongly on gut feel. When googling to find others whose blogs I could recommend in my book I came across Michelle on the first click. I stuck with her as I liked her relaxed, straight forward style.
My background is in primary teaching: I have 2 ‘big’ children and I am getting married in May! My son recently spent two years in Tasmania and Australia. Herb and I leapt at the opportunity to visit and we really enjoyed our time in your country. My daughter visits in September for a year. She has become friendly with a young Australian: this is an added attraction I expect. It may be my excuse for another visit!
