The word “freedom” has a very special meaning for the survivors of child sexual abuse. Freedom is your secret desire. You dream about being totally and completely free from the crushing burden of your painful past. It’s what you want more than anything.
If that sounds like you, I’ve got good news. Freedom is within your grasp. And it begins with mindfulness.
When you were a child, you lived in “survival mode.” That’s the only way to survive abuse. In your case, surviving meant disconnecting from yourself, your feelings, and what the abuser was doing to your young body.
That strategy worked for you when you were a child. But it works against you as an adult. When you grew up, this toxic strategy took your life hostage and began torturing you with all the emotional pain buried in your subconscious.
You could disconnect when you were young. But enough is enough. Now the pain wants out. All of it. And you can’t seem to stop it, no matter how hard you try.
Mindfulness will free you from that legacy of pain. It teaches you how to focus your awareness in healthy ways. It reconnects you to your body, soul, heart, and the beauty of the world around you. It shows you how to live in the moment rather than in the pain of the past.
Mindfulness can be as simple as sitting still for a few minutes, closing your eyes to focus on your breath, and observing the thoughts that tumble through your mind. This alone can be a life-changing experience. The more you practice mindfulness, the more healing you’ll bring into your mind and body.
Mindfulness is a wonderful skill anyone can learn. Because it reconnects you to everything important in life, it’s the opposite of survival mode. Mindfulness is the practice of living life to the fullest. Best of all, it frees you from the painful burden of your past.
