WTF IS NERVOUS SYSTEM CAPACITY?!?!
What you can mentally push yourself to do is not necessarily what your nervous system has the capacity for.
And... what your clients can mentally push themselves to do is not necessarily what they have the capacity for.
What did you feel when you read those statements? Did they feel resonant, like an ah-ha moment?
Or did it feel a little disempowering, confusing? Take a moment to check in with how those statements landed for you in your body.
Now, let me elaborate.
***And, by the way you might want to grab a cup of tea for this read or even print this out because it's a little bit long but VERY important if you want to understand this concept of nervous system capacity.
First - what exactly is capacity from a nervous system perspective?
Or - as I said in the title of this post: WTF is nervous system capacity?!?!
Simply put - capacity is the amount of stress that we can hold and stay present to without having to disconnect from our bodies (by...

I was about 6 years into my healing journey when I discovered the role the nervous system plays in healing from trauma and chronic stress. By healing journey, I mean healing from a childhood of abuse and neglect. Side effects of being raised by a mom whose unresolved childhood trauma led to paranoid schizophrenia, NPD and manic depression.
My journey started with therapy. At around 18, I found myself in the office of an angel who helped me understand that my home was not normal. That it was, in fact, abusive. She gave me a check list for abuse and I checked off almost everything on it.
It was her that helped me realize I needed to move away from my parents home.
After that, things were not all well and good. I was a mess - and chose to put myself in messy relationships with messy people. I was dysfunctional inside. But I worked hard at my retail job, I participated in church leadership, and I did well in college as an honour roll student.
I had a boyfriend who was dealing with severe...
Entrepreneurial Stress - A Healthy & Holistic Way to Respond
There is a push and pull to growth. We feel pulled to grow so that we can become people who do the amazing things we dream of doing and feel the amazing things we dream of feeling. And yet, the process of growth is a valley of internal obstacles. One of the obstacles that can show up in the valley is trauma. Life calls us to move through the trauma that has kept us coping rather than living, so that we can have space inside to make our dreams a reality.
As entrepreneurs - the wild animals we are - we choose an alternative path. Those of us who feel called to bring our gifts to the world through entrepreneurship choose a path of complex problems that become more complex with each stage of growth. We choose a path that requires emotional intelligence and leadership - a relational IQ that can allow us to meet the needs of the market, lead our teams and maintain our relationships with other people in our...

In this episode of the heal for real podcast, I am talking about trauma and choice.
I discuss what trauma is - and how my understanding of trauma allows me to have a very pragmatic and optimistic view of healing.
