Aug 19, 2020

How are you healing deep emotional blockages and trauma?

Ruthie Lindsey is the author of her memoir There I Am, The Journey From Hopelessness To Healing, A Nashville-based speaker, and cohost of the Unspoken podcast.
Ruthie shares a remarkable story of surviving an accident as a teenager where she had a five percent chance to live and a one percent chance to walk, and the surgery that simultaneously saved and destroyed her body.

As a young woman, chronic pain slowly pulled Ruthie away from everything she once held dear: her marriage, her faith, her family, her body, her very self. But her message is one of strength and resilience, the faith she lost and rebuilt in herself, and the power of sharing our stories. Ruthie challenges audiences to find the healing that is inside of all of us. She has spoken alongside renowned activists and writers such as Brené Brown, Glennon Doyle, and Rachel Hollis.

Ruthie reminds us that the journey through trauma healing is so deep. Suffering and trauma are necessary to reach a higher level of consciousness. Instead of desensitizing our trauma, we need to sit and feel everything to get to its depths. We can’t experience great joy until we allow ourselves to experience significant pain.

Then, Ruthie goes deep into her healing journey. She connects emotionally with her soul family. In the context of a relationship, Ruthie struggles with attachment. During her healing journey, Ruthie does a lot of reparenting work. It’s incredible how our brilliant brains long to heal - we are all so deserving of this healing work. Stay tuned as we talk about affirmations, forgiveness, and shadow work.
