“Become comfortable with the uncomfortable”  — Kim Wilkinson   Growing up, we have not been taught by society how to manage our emotional health; from our emotional experiences, trauma, grief and every root of it all. We’re told to brush it off or just be strong and never fully feel our unpleasant experiences which results in them being unresolved. However, these ways are practiced unconsciously but little do we know that it affects and serves us in our adulthood. We were so conditioned to think, act and believe otherwise that we lose our authentic selves in the process.   Kim Wilkinson teaches us to open ourselves to the hard truth of painful experiences. You can't fix change or heal what you're not aware of but when you become more aware of your emotions and the why behind things. Things make so much sense that everything becomes so much more clear within yourself and with other people.   When you change your perception of the word and its context, it can be powerful and freeing. For example, the word “guilt” in the context of the court of law, means “with the intention to cause harm” but what you did was never intended and so should not be associated with guilt. It can be changed to “ regret”.   Kim tackled triggers with a different perspective in which she states that triggers are an energetic sensation in the body that is trying to get attention to direct us to what needs to be healed. Instead of avoiding and escaping away from the triggers, why not acknowledge and listen to our bodies. It doesn't go away until you actually bring it to the surface, understand it, and find some completion with it then you're free. Connected with all that, Kim bravely showed her vulnerability through her personal experience of grief and how her personal experiences brought her to this purposeful work she’s doing.     Wellness Nuggets: ●       Forgiveness is letting go of the hope of a different or better yesterday ●       Find a different perspective on some of the languages that we use ●       You take care of your emotional health and you will heal physically ●       Grief and trauma comes in different forms ●       Trauma-informed yoga is a great way to reconnect with the body ●       Triggers directs us where we need to be healed   We invite you to ignite the Wellness Warrior in YOU!   About the Guest: Kim Wilkinson is a Trauma & Grief Recovery Coach and Spiritual Empowerment Coach.
