Healing is not a spectator sport


.
I am not healed or probably will never be healed, however, I have sat quietly, in the middle of my biggest PTSD trauma fears (fight or flight mechanism firing violently).

I have fired my triggers intentionally, then took my breath in the middle of this unrest.

When all the cortisol and adrenaline dissipated, I went back to normal life.

In less than 15 minutes I went from fight or flight firing to calm using only my breath.

The thoughts and comorbid depression are my challenges.

I have helped others use meditation to calm their fight or flight mechanism.

It is a mechanical process, like aerobic exercise will do the same thing.

We need therapy and inner world work to integrate the rest.

We heal in small increments with many different therapies and actions.

Daily work is required.

Healing is not a spectator sport.
