As ‘somatic sensory beings’ we are touched and impacted by our immediate surroundings both in the emotional and physical realms.
We retain our openness if our system’s needs are met – becoming stable and open, being able to flow easily between expansion and contraction.
If however, there is a conscious or unconscious rejection on the parent’s (caregiver’s part) at any juncture from the beginning of form, the system may need to shut down or withdraw in a ‘healthy’ survival response protecting its ‘self’ through contraction or flattening against the outside.
This becomes our life’s work to find our way back to receiving and embracing our life force and all the innate qualities of our essence.”

“Difficulty arises when one tries to overlay the inner states with patterning; not inquiring into the disassociated parts to retrieve their linkages.
A person may create an overlay that supports another belief system for a while, but the avoidance will be a felt as a quiet to loud discomfort which can leave a person feeling as though they aren’t ‘measuring up’ or not doing it ‘right enough.’
Moving through life with unconscious memories, our outer world will reflect these patterns until one retrieves, knows, understands, resolves and embraces the unfolding layers of the soma’s and psyche’s holding patterns.
This challenge requires an unwinding and rewiring of our inner circuitry, clearing the way to remember the tranquility of Oneness.”
