Many of you have asked and some have wondered why I haven’t been writing lately. The answer is simple: I’ve been undergoing a transformation myself. For the past few years, I have immersed myself in the latest brain science and positive psychology. I even took a week-long class from Jack Canfield—which was amazing and helped me switch my mindset. I have undergone a rigorous 3-year training in Regenerating Images in Memory (RIM) and am now a Master Trainer in RIM, training other therapists, coaches and anyone else interested in learning this exciting cutting-edge technique.
What does this mean for you? Well, after many years as The Trauma Queen, I found myself thinking differently. I started seeing that things could change more quickly than I had been taught—that because of our brain’s amazing ability, called neuroplasticity, us humans can continuously change throughout our lives. We are not stuck in our traumas, and we are not stuck in those old habits of thinking and feeling. We are more than the sum of all that’s happened to us. And, in fact, we can change all of those things and rather quickly.
When I was trained, I was told that transforming trauma can take between 3-5 years. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There is a lot out there that is helping us feel and think differently and therefore get different results in our lives!
I discovered what can only be called BLISS happening more and more in my life. I am now on a quest to share these discoveries with others and help the world have more bliss! I MEAN, WHO DOESN’T WANT MORE BLISS??
Why bliss? Well, what I was experiencing was more than “joy” and could only be described as BLISS—an innate state of joy. I had always thought of bliss as a kind of eastern term other worldly term, but I found that we all have the capacity to experience bliss much more than we had imagined.
In the book The Bliss Experiment, the author says Bliss is a “state of unity, transcendence, completeness, knowingness, wholeness and uplifted consciousness; it is a feeling of connection with all of creation.” Sounds heavenly, right?
Bliss has become so important to me that I have decided moving forward to rename The Trauma Queen to The Blissful Adult. So, next week, this page will change names. The content will still be interesting and include latest findings about treating trauma but also ways we all can have more of the stuff we want in our lives—happiness, joy and freedom and BLISS!
I’m excited to share some of my new discoveries with you!
