Joy sets goals for continuous achievement, and loves connecting with others by helping them reach their own ideals and aspirations.
What Is Possible?
What if you could expect your body to act according to your wellness ideals, not according to "reality"? Well, you can.
Start designing a new sense of wellness today, by embracing the unharnessed energy all around us.
If my body can allow something to be damaged, it also knows how to fix it, and has the means to do so.

Reality vs. Ideals
Reality says that we live in a messed up world full of pain. And yes, we do. Our current home is a spiritually damaged planet, in the wake of which all other damages follow.
But it is possible to reach beyond this reality. And to do otherwise is absurd.
Let me give you an example why.
A Dark Closet
Suppose that you were trapped in a closet. Never mind why or how it happened. Just briefly imagine it's so.
Now, just because the closet is small and dark and possibly dirty, does that mean the world outside it is also unlit, full of the smell of your own despair?
Of course not. Outside, there is sunshine and stars and, occassionally, a sense of hope. The misery of the closet is contained to--the closet.
As soon as you are out of it, there is no reason to live as if you are still trapped.
So it is with healing and accessing free energy.
But even in a darkened closet, you can access hope. This will be our focus. But first--
What About Trauma?
Trauma inhibits our ability to heal and grow. No doubt about that.
So if you have a trauma history, is it possible to totally heal damages, such as those resulting from psychological and emotional abuse?
The answer is an emphatic, "Yes!"
Let's explore this.
Heavy Rejuvination Requirements
The first thing you must accept is that you need to give yourself room to heal.
Yes--lots of room.
This may mean checking out of certain expectations, plans, and relationships.
There will come a time when you may be able to check back in (and may even want to!) But checking out has to happen. Healing cannot take place under pressure.
Anulling Pressure From Others
This decision to be less involved may meet resistance from others. You will have to decide how to meet that resistance, and hold to your boundaries. This in itself may be a journey.
Acting on your own behalf will feel difficult. At times it may not feel worth the struggle.
But you must ask yourself at each crossroads:
Is the pain of staying where I am better than the pain of moving?
And you alone can answer.
You alone are responsible for your choices, and their consequences. So you need to choose the answer you can best live with.
If you are ready to move, or feel that you would like to be, shuffle one foot forward. Now the other one.
My Body Is Capable of Healing
Natural Healing Wisdom
Accepting that your body contains healing wisdom is the next thing you must do.
The catch is that your body tries to listen to you, and adjust to the thoughts of your inmost heart. If the thoughts of your heart prompt your body to think badly of itself, you must learn to think new thoughts.

We're going to learn to reach into the infinite to access energy that can build us up.
What Are You Imagining?
Each of us was created with an immense imagination. Even if we each can't make up wild stories, or paint surreal artwork, we can do our share to exercise imaginations of either healing, or damages.
And our bodies and energy fields are fine-tuned to respond to those imaginations.
Interdimensional Imagining Skills
In order for this process to work, you are going to have to allow your imagination to crash through some fences.
The Universe seems to be made up of layers of shifting, interactive dimensions, to which we contribute as mini-creators whenever we exercise our heart's imaginations.
We're going to exercise our privilege to imagine a dimension in which we exist without pain.
In order to do this, we must face the first fence. This fence is Physical Reality.
A Trapped Feeling
If you were abused in your physical reality, then you probably feel trapped by your body. There may be resentment and anger, at both yourself and others. This is okay for now. All we're going to do is imagine a place without pain.
I bet you've done this before.
What Does Health Look Like to You?
What Does Your No-Pain Place Look Like?
Begin by noticing the place in your mind where you go when you don't want to deal with stuff.
What does it look like? It can be anything.
It can be urban, or a forest; a sunrise-glazed plain, or a mountain cabin; an ocean or . . . out of this world.
The idea is to allow yourself to access the vision. Be there. Smell the air. Taste the foods or scents. Touch walls or trees or grass. Move around. Notice. Breathe.
Are there animals?
What plants grow nearby?
Do you hear people? If so, do they speak the same language as you?
What are you wearing in your vision?
