    113. Signs Of A Controlling Parent

    113. Signs Of A Controlling Parent

    The psychological effects of controlling parents.

    What happens when your entire world is controlled?  Micah grew up in a very controlled, religious environment. Church was three times a week. Discipline was militant in style and there were so many rules and beliefs that Micah had begun obsessively washing her hands by the age of 5. Later she developed an eating disorder and flip flopped between dissociation and hypervigilance.  This is an insight into the trauma of a father passed down to his daughter as she fought for control over every aspect of her being.

    Micah is a Trauma Midwife and a Psychedelic Guide & Integration Specialist.  You can find her at https://www.instagram.com/micahsugarfoot/ and her website http://www.micahstoverconsulting.com/micah-story

    112. How Does Trauma Change Your DNA?

    What is epigenetics?

    A fascinating look into how much genetics and trauma affect our lives.

    Johanna Lynn works in the emerging field of epigenetics.  When you have traumatic experiences, that trauma can leave a chemical mark on your genes, which can then be passed down to future generations. This mark doesn't cause a genetic mutation, but it does alter the way that gene is expressed. This alteration is not genetic. It is epigenetic. Not only do parents pass down their DNA, it’s what happened to your grandparents & parents and the affect of those experiences on their DNA that is passed down to us.

    Johanna is amazing!  You can find her at https://johannalynn.ca/ and on instagram https://www.instagram.com/thefamilyimprint_institute/

    Adriana is a coach who is empowering survivors of narcissistic abuse to heal, set boundaries and live life on their own terms. Adriana grew up with a mother who was confusing. She loved her mom and she also hated her and the older she got the more fractured the relationship became. Adriana's mom was abusive, toxic and abandoning and kept Adriana in a tiny world with very few outside connections. Adriana describes herself as a pawn baby and was used in a game by her mom to manipulate her Dad. Her mother manipulated the relationship she had with her Dad so much, she eventually became completely estranged from her father. Adriana is now creating beautiful healing spaces for anyone recovering from narcissistic abuse.  If you have ever had a narcissist in your life, you need to hear this.
