Unlock 3 Profound Keys to PTSD & Trauma-Free Living With Jesus as Our Pilot.

Imagine being trapped in a relentless storm, with waves crashing around you and darkness closing in. In moments like these, when trauma and PTSD threaten to consume us, we long for a guiding light, a beacon of hope to lead us out of the chaos. That guiding light is none other than Yeshua Hamashiach (Jesus). As a Jewish believer in Messiah Jesus, I have undergone intense warfare that seemed impossible for me to endure over the last 15 years and basically my entire life. I moved out of my mother’s house at the age of 12 into my dad’s house and lived through a “Cinderella Type” childhood that had the step sisters & step mother who made me feel worthlessness and detached from reality. I always was offered the “hand me down clothes”, most difficult house work, and I was not invited to the fun shopping trips that my step sisters engaged in. Later on in life I ended up divorced after 2 tumultuous failed marriages leading me further into despair. I am writing this blog post to let you know that there is hope for you in your darkest moments. There were many days that I did not want to live. One day, I had an encounter with the Lord that opened my heart and mind to make it my passion to overcome Trauma and Ptsd and move forward into the plans that the Lord had for me.

Trauma has the power to shatter our sense of self, leaving us broken and lost. However, through the power of gratitude, we can begin to rebuild. Cultivating an attitude of gratitude allows us to shift our focus from the pain to the blessings that still surround us. It is an act of defiance against despair, a conscious choice to find beauty amidst the wreckage. With Jesus as our pilot, gratitude becomes a compass that points us towards healing. After my first divorce, I was raising a new born baby. I moved to New Jersey without any money or income. The Lord lead me to start a home day care so that I could care for my baby and other children enabling me to have some money to pay the bills. Each day the Lord brought in the right children and parents that were open to salvation through Jesus and wanted me to care for their youngsters. It was a lonely time but it helped me grow closer to God watching Him provide for me and my baby. I would get blessings from strangers regularly. The babies and small children provided love to the deep wounds in my heart. I had an attitude of gratitude in the eye of the storm.

Gratitude has a way of transforming our hearts and minds. When we choose to count our blessings, it redirects our attention away from the darkness and toward the light. It allows us to recognize the goodness that still exists, even amidst the chaos. In doing so, we create space for hope to emerge and for healing to begin.

Practicing gratitude doesn't mean ignoring or minimizing our pain. Rather, it involves finding moments of beauty and joy that can coexist alongside our suffering. It involves acknowledging the small victories, the acts of kindness we receive, and the moments of respite that punctuate our journey. It involves finding gratitude in the midst of the struggle.

One way to cultivate gratitude is to keep a gratitude journal. Each day, take a few moments to write down three things that you are grateful for. They can be as simple as a warm cup of coffee in the morning, a kind word from a friend, or a peaceful moment in nature. By consistently noting these moments of gratitude, we train our minds to seek out and appreciate the goodness in our lives.

Another powerful practice is to express gratitude to those who have supported us on our healing journey. Take a moment to write a heartfelt note or have a conversation with someone who has been there for you. Let them know how much their love, presence, and support have meant to you. Sharing your gratitude not only strengthens your relationships, but it also reinforces the positive aspects of your life and helps to counterbalance the weight of trauma.

Cultivating an attitude of gratitude is not always easy, especially in the midst of suffering. It requires a conscious effort to shift our focus from the pain to the blessings. However, with Jesus as our pilot and the guiding light, we can tap into a wellspring of gratitude that will sustain us through the darkest of times. Let us now explore

The second key to overcoming trauma and PTSD that the Lord gave me is being in the presence of God. This practice offers solace and strength like no other. When we intentionally seek His presence, we invite Him to enter into our pain and bring us peace that surpasses all understanding. In the embrace of His love, we find a refuge, a sanctuary where trauma loses its power. With Jesus as our pilot, His presence becomes our anchor, grounding us amidst the storm. After spending time with the Lord, He taught me Inner healing and deliverance as well as EMDR, Forward Focus Therapy and talking to a trained Trauma Specialist or counselor. God had me go through deep healing after my 2nd marriage ended. I went through one trauma after another through the marriage and divorce. Getting into the presence of God was healing me and the wounds that I was dealing with from false allegations and painful memories. In the presence of God, we find a sacred space where our burdens are lifted and our hearts are understood. It is here, in the embrace of His love, that we experience true healing and restoration. Through prayer, and the reading of scripture, I opened myself to God's grace, allowing Him to work within me and guide me towards healing.

When I soaked in the presence of God, I was reminded of His unwavering faithfulness and unconditional love. My fears and anxieties begin to dissipate as I trusted in His sovereignty and surrendered my burdens to Him. In His presence, I discovered a refuge from the chaos of trauma, a sanctuary where I was able to find peace. The Lord downloaded many revelations to me that I journaled regularly in His presence. It’s only in His presence where there is fullness of joy. The Lord instructed me to learn different therapy techniques to teach others during this time of enjoying His affection. Although I had always worked with people with mental health issues in psychiatric hospitals by doing coping skills groups, anger management, stress management, self esteem, VCR techniques etc, I never knew anythings about “Forward Focus” Therapy, EMDR and some other helpful tools for overcoming Trauma that I use today with my Life Coaching Clients.

Moreover, being in the presence of God provided me with a sense of purpose and direction. As I leaned into His guiding hand, I was reminded that my healing journey is not one that I can undertake alone. With Jesus as my pilot, I was able to navigate the treacherous waters of trauma with confidence, knowing that He was leading me towards a life of wholeness and freedom.

In the presence of God, I was able to find the strength to forgive others for things that were unfairly done to me. The weight of my past traumas left me angry and defiled. However, by opening my heart to God's love and grace, I was able to release these negative emotions and find forgiveness. Through His transformative power, I was able to let go of the chains that bound me to my past, embracing a future filled with hope and healing. My birthday is “March fourth”. It is prophetic for moving forward and not living in my past. The Lord gave me a gentle reminder to stay focused forward and not behind.

The third key that the Lord gave me for overcoming trauma was starting a Life Coaching Business and becoming Certified in Trauma. The Lord wanted me to use my skills to help others overcome the pains that were stuck in my heart for so many years. When I pray for others or work with others who are dealing with abuse, neglect, and PTSD it brings another level of healing to my soul. When I get testimonies from people getting free from years of pain I feel lighter and more free myself. Having compassion for others brings a safe and nurturing environment for people to feel open to express themselves with you. They trust you. This is God’s way of healing you as well. Having compassion for others involves extending kindness and understanding to peoples needs especially when they are struggling. It means treating people with the same care and compassion that you would need during your most difficult times.. Being the hands and feet of Jesus offers people unconditional love no matter where they have been and what they went through. Through His grace, we can extend the same love and grace to others that He gave to us in our dark night of the soul.

Practicing compassion for others involves acknowledging their pain, without judgment or self-criticism. It's about allowing people to feel the emotions that arise from their trauma, while reminding ourselves that these feelings are valid and part of our healing journey. We can offer bringing words of comfort and reassurance, speaking to words of kindness and gentleness.

This enables them to gradually release the grip of trauma and step into a life of wholeness and freedom.

During the last 5 years, I lead many to the Lord through evangelism and online ministry. I did 1:1 coaching calls as well as praying for people to be healed from trauma. I took many of the techniques and tools that the Lord told me to learn such as Forward Focus Therapy, EMDR, Grounding Techniques, Mindfulness, Inner Healing and Deliverance and so much more. Each time that I helped others the Lord healed me more.

As we embark on this journey, remember the words of Psalm 34:17-18, "The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."

In the journey of overcoming trauma and PTSD, Jesus offers us three powerful keys to unlock healing and restoration. By cultivating an attitude of gratitude, practicing self-compassion, and immersing ourselves in the presence of God, we can navigate through the darkest of times with Jesus as our pilot.

These three principles, when integrated into our lives, become guiding stars that lead us towards faster healing and a deeper understanding of ourselves and our experiences. They illuminate our path with hope and empower us to rise above the pain.

But this is not the end; it's only the beginning. As we embrace these 3 keys to trauma healing, we embark on a transformative journey, encountering Jesus in a whole new way. We discover a profound sense of purpose and find our way to the other side of suffering.

Now is the time to take action. Let's consciously cultivate gratitude, extending its healing power to every corner of our lives. Let's practice compassion, nurturing ourselves with love and acceptance. And let's seek the presence of God, finding solace and strength in His comforting embrace.

Together, let's unlock these #3Keys to healing and discover the transformative power of Jesus in our lives. May His love guide us, His grace sustain us, and His peace envelop us. Embrace His leadership, and find the courage to soar beyond the scars, into a future filled with hope and restoration.

Take the pilot's seat today and watch the power of Jesus guide you to newfound freedom.
