If you have experienced ongoing trauma or a specific event that impacted you, most likely you an relate to how disorienting it can be. Part of the trauma response is the mind trying to make sense of what and how something happened and if you can trust yourself and your experience. At the same time, your body also goes through a physiological response that is meant to alert and protect you from potential danger. Often the body and nervous system don't know when the trauma has passed because it is conditioned to respond the same way as if it is occurring in the present moment. Trauma also blocks the heart from feeling and receiving love, care, and warmth from others but also ourselves..
