When I began selling the Faithful Institute last month, I had my own plans for the Institute.
The Holy Spirit has convicted me since I began selling it around Somatic Experiencing which was my primary mode of training. Click here to read the story of how I left that behind a few weeks ago after the Lord showed me some things about the Founder of SE.
I have had to repent to the Lord around this .
Another thing I felt led to do before I shared the story of leaving Somatic Experiencing behind, was to change the price from 7,500 to 3,000 and I shared that with my community as well (which ended up being confirmation for one of the students to sign up)!
And I have been feeling more and more to yield this program to the Spirit completely.
That has felt scary, and like a true leap of faith for me as God reveals the layers of my heart that I still held back.
Coming out of 5 years of running...
I live in Canada - that means winter is COMING! Freezing cold days, less time outside and more hours of darkness mean that there are some things that I do to keep my health and nervous system functioning optimally in the winter season.
This winter I am extra mindful as I have a weight loss goal to focus on and maintain. If my nervous system spends too much time in the freeze response I will lose any and all progress as I go back to maintenance mode! PLUS we will be doing some travelling this winter - flying, long drives and being out of the environment that is set up for my success.
So I want to be intentional (NOT perfectionistic) about keeping myself in my window of tolerance or as close to it as humanly possible. Remember that in the window of tolerance EVERYTHING in the body functions optimally, not just mood. That means digestion, cellular health, hormone health, thyroid health, brain health etc.
While my nervous system has...
Everyone say it with me: Co-Regulation leads to self-regulation!
This is a key concept for understanding trauma healing at the nervous system level because it teaches us how we can access neuroplasticity with support from other people who have regulated nervous systems.
In this episode, I talk about
Scriptures mentioned in the episode:
So I woke up this morning brimming with gratitude for the integration and activation that's happening within me.
And I am just thinking about all the amazing people that have been divinely put on my path that planted seeds in my spirit.
And I had an overwhelming desire to share it all.
Well this is easily the most vulnerable - and longest live stream I have ever done.
This is the replay of the original stream on INSTA.
It's about what I’m going through and the people that brought me here…
Wow I was not expecting this to go on as long as it did - but it did!
And I was not expecting to be brought to tears - okay maybe I was lol! But not that much…
I share what I’m moving through and integrating and what is coming through me. I also share some of the key people along the way that have made such a difference in my life. Not all the key people of course but the ones that came to mind.
I talked about the deep feelings of self-disgust and self-loathing that kept me...

When it comes to trauma recovery of any kind (complex PTSD, PTSD, Attachment Trauma, Shock Trauma) - there is no magic pill.
However, when we use the RIGHT components together, in the right order, consistently, we can speed up our recovery.
Remember that trauma represents a lack of resources whether those resources be energy, attachment, nutrients, or essential minerals and nutrients. When we are dealing with trauma we are dealing with a body that has suffered under the weight of too much, too soon, too fast with too little resources, for too long.
So let's talk about one powerful, game-changing resource when it comes to trauma healing: Magnesium!
What is magnesium?
Magnesium is a mineral - an essential nutrient for the health of the human body
It is required for nerve function, blood pressure regulation, blood pressure, making protein, bone & DNA (National Institute of Health). Most importantly, It is a primary mineral that is utilized during the stress response....

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...
