Well I certainly have lots of proof that working on connectedness in a personalized manner is working for me. There have always been things that worked, though they were not grounding skills.
Grounding as described was more about sensory things, a connection to my body when it was upset and hyperalert, and a grounding to the earth. Those things are not things that work the best for me. And often they have been things that incite panic, even to the point of having a panic attack.
Working on connectedness has helped me to honor my own intuitive and gut feelings about what worked as a child, as a teen, as a young adult, and today and yesterday. Being able to see that and to ferret out some more skills that I have used and to explore more skills has really helped put me on the right path.
Understanding that I already had a good bunch of skills let me feel much more confident about who I was, where I was, and where I was going. It has significantly helped me to increase my sense of self-esteem, safety, and sense of self and home in the last three months.
It has helped me to learn how to be a leader in our system and how to care for all of us in a healthier, happier, and more healing manner.
It has given me the realisation that I am so connected to so many things and that my life is so much better, right now, than I ever imagined. It has been the opening of the new path and the new life for me and I am so excited. I am walking into the second half of my life.
I will be finishing up my posts on this connectedness series by the end of this month, though my connectedness work will not end there, it is really just the beginning. A beginning with a solid foundation. I am really happy and really proud of all the work that I have done.
