The Importance of the Physical Body in Healing

This is part of ‘An Empath’s Guide to Narcissists’ video series. Exploring the physical body and its importance in the healing process. How can we maintain a balanced, healthy relationship with the body we inhabit? Abuse contributes to extreme dissociation from the body, but the physical body holds the trauma. It’s also where we feel, everything, which connects us more deeply with the world we live in. Big Love, ~ Jenny <3 * I invite you to check out the course ‘An Empath’s Guide to Narcissists,’ which walks through different aspects of this dynamic from an empath’s perspective. The purpose of the course is to become a more empowered and self-responsible empath. *

Take the time to rest, and if possible, don’t ‘push through’ whatever you’re feeling, but just let it flow. There is a concurrent thread of falling in love all over again, and of aspects of ourselves waking up that haven’t been heard from in some time. It feels like the final days/weeks of chrysalis mode, when the exhaustion of becoming the new is felt side by side with the knowledge of what is to come. I have Continue reading Falling in Love with Life

Exploring Home

A beautiful friend of mine, Joy Holland, has been writing and creating at Facets of Joy for a number of years. I love her energy and the way she shares her heart and experiences so openly. This month, she’s exploring home, and what it means to different people. She asked me to make a contribution, and as I’ve just begun a new chapter on the home front, it felt right. Here’s my contribution, Make yourself at Home. Big Love, ~ Jenny <3
