October – Letter from the editor
Two words that have meant more for me personally on my journey in recovering from PTSD than anything else. For years I attached myself to the pain, to the words, to the memories, to the scars of what happened in the past. It felt almost good to hold on, it felt safe creating space for the wounds to fester. I was too weak to let go of my story for years because I didn’t know how to live a life away from it’s grasp.
I became a character in a nightmare that was told to me as a child that I chose to maintain and recreated into existence within my own life. I was living, producing and acting in my own mental horror film. But one day I started to let go – I started to practice what I am now teaching you this month. I started to meditate every day and began the beautiful process of reclaiming my life and rewriting my story. I found the light and now I am here holding it for you as we stand together ready to let go.
This month in the membership it felt fitting to choose this topic during a month that I personally find very challenging – October, my birthday month. For me, this month and the 17th of October, my birthday, marks the anniversary of an event in my childhood that has caused me a lot of pain.
An event I’ve worked hard at letting go of so I can rewrite my own story. We all have things we need to let go of but I personally feel that we rarely create space and rituals to actually let go and realise our inner traumas which leads to them building up and manifesting into low moods, anxiety, depression, low self esteem, and self-doubt.
This month’s all about practical tools and techniques I personally use to release pain, trauma, stories, and negative energy so that you can move forward, forgive the past, let it all go and start living in the present and in love.
I hope this month serves you and supports you.
I want to leave you with a beautiful quote my deal friend Cartia Mallan’s mother, Kylie, passed on.
“Remember, wherever you are challenged, you are equally supported.”
I hope this month serves you and supports you in the process of letting go.
Love, Fox. x
