Feeling is Healing.
I am Kristiana, born in Latvia and have lived around the world for the past many years.
Feeling is healing. Through my own experience, I realised that when we feel, we heal. When we say it out loud and there is a witness to our story, we also heal. Expressing how we feel in this moment is one of the most important things to do when we are on a journey of healing. We never end healing. It happens on a continuous basis. There is always something to heal. Our body is so smart. There is so much wisdom within it and it carries so much information (both unnecessary one such as trauma/traumatic situations and one that we need).
In 2015 I started my 10 day journey into Psychosomatic Therapy (psyche - mind, soma - body) and understanding my mom and her autoimmune dis-ease. I always knew there was something more, something deeper, something beyond her pain. That there was a connection between how she felt mentally (depressed, stressed, deeply unhappy, tired of her life and life in general) and the pain she experienced in her body. I felt Psychosomatic Therapy will give me the answers, a proof that what I felt and thought is not only my imagination but that it is true, that our body and mind are connected and that there is so much more to our sickness, pain, dis-ease.
From there onwards, my spiritual journey led me to a 10-day Vipassana silent meditation program, becoming a Yoga Instructor, another Psychosomatic Therapy course (Mastery level), Yoga Nidra course and multiple The Art of Yin Yoga courses.
On the side, I started practicing Wisdom Healing Qigong for my own wellbeing, healing and health.
