    Thank you so much, Lorie – I really feel the different phases of this process. As I continue to cultivate my inner loving parent, I am learning to discern between perceived threat and actual threat, what feels true in real time as opposed to what feels like a trauma response – and tend to my younger selves in the process, slowly building trust in my adult self and my perceptions, so they can be relieved of and released of the responsibility of trying to manage my life – so they can just rest, heal, and play.

    If I tried to jump straight to allowing empowerment without allowing this foundation to form and strengthen, I would get triggered so fast and revert back to old ways – my perspective and perceptions wouldn’t have changed, so empowerment would have felt exposing and like a lie I was going to get caught in.

    I appreciate the slow, thoughtful, soulful approach and will order yarrow from Tree Frog Farms over the next few days. Thank you again
