    Does Labeling Ourself as an Empath Limit Us?

    Does Labeling Ourself as an Empath Limit Us?

    On today's show, Lindsey Lockett, the Holistic Trauma Healing Podcast host, joins Kristen and discusses the ups and downs of labels. Labels can help deepen self-awareness and compassion, and they can be restrictive if we don't leave room to evolve. Lindsey says it best; labels can be beneficial and limiting. However, if a label has us looking outside ourselves in fear and blame, it isn't serving us.

    The Sensitive Nervous System; Back to Calm After a Storm

    The Sensitive Nervous System; Back to Calm After a Storm

    To thrive as human beings, we need healthy and balanced nervous systems.
    Being a highly sensitive person means we are processing our experiences more deeply and profoundly. But, unfortunately, the remarkable trait of being a deep feeling person can equate to spending extra time in a stressed or activated state. 

    To get back to a place of balance, we must reclaim self-regulation, build safe relationships, resilience, and our ability to be fully present in each moment. 
    In today's soul-o podcast, Kristen continues the nervous system discussion from last week and dives into the topic of soothing our nervous systems back to baseline, and shares tips and tricks to let the healing begin.

    How Trauma Affects our Nervous System

    How Trauma Affects our Nervous System

    A regulated nervous system experiences the stress and calming response throughout a given day. However, trauma pushes the activation of the nervous system beyond its ability to self-regulate. When a stressful experience bumps the nervous system beyond its limits, our activated system can get stuck on "on."

    In today's soul-o podcast, Kristen discusses the nervous system and how trauma affects it. She also touches on the various behavioral responses we can have to our body remembering our trauma and how our trauma responses can cause shame leading to more trauma over time.
