How Did Spirituality Help You Heal Your Trauma
According to a study done by the National Institutes of Health, spirituality can help people heal from trauma. The study found that people who had experienced a traumatic event were more likely to have PTSD if they did not have a spiritual practice.
The study also found that people who had a spiritual practice were more likely to have lower levels of anxiety and depression.
Spirituality can help people heal from trauma because it provides them with a sense of meaning and purpose. It can also help people connect with others who have similar experiences. Spirituality can offer hope and healing after a traumatic event.
What Specific Spiritual Practices Or Beliefs Helped You to Heal
There is no one size fits all answer to this question, as different spiritual practices and beliefs will work for different people in different ways.
However, some specific spiritual practices or beliefs that may help people to heal include:
1. Connecting with a Higher Power:
For many people, connecting with a higher power or a force greater than themselves can be incredibly healing.
This can be done through prayer, meditation, nature walks, journaling, or any other activity that helps you to connect with something larger than yourself.
2. Honoring Your Body and Your Feelings:
It is important to honor your body and your feelings in order to promote healing. This means listening to your body when it needs rest, eating healthy foods that make you feel good and moving your body in ways that feel supportive.
It also means honoring your emotions by allowing yourself to feel them fully and express them in healthy ways.
3. Practicing Self-Care:
Self-care is essential for healing on all levels – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. This might include getting regular exercise, spending time in nature,
Practicing yoga or another form of movement/exercise you enjoy, journaling, spending time with friends and family members who support you… the list goes on! Find what works for you and make self-care a priority in your life.
4. Letting Go of What No Longer Serves You:
In order to create space for healing (and anything else you want to bring into your life), it is often necessary to let go of what no longer serves you first.
This could mean letting go of toxic relationships, unhealthy habits/substances, patterns of thinking that are negative or limiting… again the list goes on!
