    131. Checking Our Triggers: It's Not An Attack on Us. But, What Do We Do Now?

    131. Checking Our Triggers: It's Not An Attack on Us. But, What Do We Do Now?

    Today on the podcast, I will be unpacking how to navigate situations that make us doubt ourselves and lack trust in relationships. 

    I will break down my 3 KEY STEPS for checking our triggers and developing trust in ourselves and our relationships.

    1. Checking Trigger 2. Deciding Whether or Not to Pursue 3. It Starts With Me

    We can all be triggered at times. Life happens! Things can kick off and we suddenly find ourselves in highly activated states. The trouble is when we find ourselves LIVING in activated states. 

    Then, once we are regulated and have entered a receptive state, what happens next?



    Episode topics: 

    - What happens when our activated state becomes our "always state"

    - Discussing why people who have been hurt may hurt others

    - Exploring other ways in which we can stay stuck in our trauma

    - 3 key steps: 1. Checking Trigger 2. Deciding Whether or Not to Pursue 3. It Starts With Me

    - Explaining how we can take ourselves out of REACTIVITY and place ourselves into RECEPTIVITY

    - Understanding that it's not an attack on us - it's not about us

    - What is about us

    - Some final thoughts



    Happy listening!

    G 🌸

    130. "IT'S SO INVALIDATING!" : Listener questions answered

    130. "IT'S SO INVALIDATING!" : Listener questions answered

    Hello everyone! Today on the podcast, I will be reading out 3 questions from listeners and answering them!

    Of course, this will be anonymous and I have received permission to use these questions. 



    Here they are:



    1. "My sister and I grew up together. Our dad was very mean but mostly to me. I don’t have a relationship with him but she always maintained one. She said it was hard for her to grow up in the house and watch how my dad treated me but then why is she so willing to have a relationship with him? She gets upset when I talk about how hard it was to be singled out. It’s just so invalidating. Am I wrong to feel this way?"



    2. "I’ve been trying to take a distance from a toxic person in my life and I keep getting mixed options. On one hand my wife is reassuring me that I’m doing the right thing and I know I am. But then my brother is telling me to keep the peace and stop being so dramatic. I start to doubt myself and feel guilty. What should I do?"



    3. "Every time I make decisions in my family that are different, I get met with such condescending comments. I’m always told “oh poor you, that’s sounds awful.” Or “I know you have your own challenges but that’s a stupid decision. My only challenge is conversing with them! I am living a life I’m happy in for once and every time I interact with them, I just feel like I want to scream! Is there something wrong with me?"



    Happy listening!

    129. Old Stories to New Beginnings

    129. Old Stories to New Beginnings

    Hello everyone! I'm so happy to be with you today. In this episode, I will share some personal experiences I had as we explore the concepts of old stories and new beginnings. 

    Old stories can often hold us back and we may not even know they're there! Whether it be a story about relationship dynamics or society's expectations of us, we all have narratives. In this episode, I want to start talking about ways in which we can start developing awareness and take actions. This is all in the effort to understand why we live as we do and how we can continue to grow to make our lives more healthy. 

    Thank you for allowing me to share my experiences. 

    Happy listening!



    With love,

    G 🌸

    128. Disordered Eating and Trauma with Ashley McHan

    128. Disordered Eating and Trauma with Ashley McHan

    Today we are joined by Ashley McHan, a Psychotherapist and Yoga Therapist who specializes is trauma and eating disorders. We will discuss eating disorders, disordered eating, and some aspects of trauma. We will then explore why they develop and why it makes sense. 

    Ashley really does a wonderful job of breaking this all down for us. 



    NOTES on EMDR:

    The intention of EMDR is to heal trauma in all forms. What it does for us is what we so often struggle to do on our own, to see ourselves through new eyes, to see our experiences with a new lens, one that allows that compassion and understanding that we need to release the believes of ourselves that we have carried forward as a result of the experience. This then allows us to see how the experience changed us, how we attempted to cope and compensate after the experience. This is typically where we see the development of disorder eating patterns, amongst many other harmful yet well intentioned patterns of coping. This new vantage point allows people to more easily understand the role of the patterns, to see why they are compelled to act and why they feel so reliant on the disordered eating as if to survive mentally, physically or emotionally.

    When it comes to the type of trauma we are discussing today, a block to healing can be that we haven’t had our experience seen or validated. We tend to look at ourselves, especially our past selves, with a great deal of judgment. I see one of the greatest struggles in teh human experience to be with self-compassion. We view ourselves differently than we view others, we hold ourselve to different (typically unreasonable) standards. When we look back on our past pains we tend to self-blame, to feel it was our fault or due to our own weakness or defectiveness. So we keep our experiences hidden, shadowed, and we suffer alone. This is especially true of experiences that ivoked shame for us.



    Happy listening!

    With love,

    G 🌸

Podcast changed my life

I’ve recently been going through many traumatic life experiences, many to do with relationships as well as important life decisions. And although this podcast is not a replacement to therapy, it has changed my behavior and overall way of thinking for the better tenfold. I have recommended to many of my friends and they have told me the same. Genevieve is indeed very knowledgeable and I love her passionate way of speaking to us in the way she does.
