PTSD Healing Thought of the Week: Strike a Match

You know the deep darkness of PTSD. For a moment, consider what is the opposite – bright, enormous light! You will see an enormous difference when you are your fear-free self. The difference, however, will be filled with meaning. PTSD, Jung, Poetry, Healing Thought of the Week

In order to know the light, we must first experience the darkness, Jung said.

Oh, imagine how bright your world is going to be! Now, where’s the match to light the flame to begin the illumination?

Enjoy this beautiful poem, Bright Light.

You have enormous healing potential. The goal is learning to access it.

Dig deep. You can do this. I believe in you!

You have enormous healing potential. The goal is learning to access it.

It is possible to conquer the past and create the future – the first step is choosing to take the journey.
