What Is The Cause Of Overwhelm?
- Our dad didn’t give us much attention as a child, and we learned to be a Hyper-Achiever to gain his attention.
- We push ourselves hard to keep up a certain lifestyle, an envirnoment with all the nice things. We did this to feel safe as a child, due to an unstable, chaotic home life.
- We became Hyper-Rational, always up in our head, to create a sense of safety because we didn’t trust people.
Overwhelm = Trauma

We Experience Grief & Forget About It
What If You Are Grieving Something But Don’t Know It?

- Would you know it if you’ve been running away from yourself?
- Are you running from your feelings, from connecting to your body?
- Are you avoiding intimate relationships with your partner and others?

- Do I have inflammatory illnesses, such as gut and skin issues, brain fog, chronic fatigue, autoimmune, etc.?
- Do I have perfectionistic tendencies?
- Do I have a fear of feeling attacked, misunderstood, betrayed?
- Do I fear others seeing me in a weak light, not the “strong one”?

- Am I disconnected from myself, my body and feelings?

Fear Of Opening Grief Pandora’s Box
- Imagine we all have a standard suitcase, and one loss or difficult experience carries a lot of weight with it, like a heavy brick. If we get enough bad experiences, we carry around alot of bricks and we’ll need to get a new suitcase.
- If we choose not to grieve, we’re saying we’re ok with lugging around all this baggage.
- We sign up for anxiety, depression, pain and difficult relationships.
- It’s scary to open up grief pandora’s box. We do amazing things to avoid not feeling good, but yet we’re not feeling good.
- Each loss offers us an opportunity to open up the suitcase, look at those bricks and unpack them.
- Maybe I don’t have to lug all of this stuff around, but can learn from it and release it.
Are You Ready To Look At The Overwhelm?

How About Starting With This Daily Practice?

- Inhale through the nose to the count of 4. Hold the breath for 4 seconds.
- Exhale through the mouth to the count of 4. Hold the breath for 4 seconds.
