The Healing Spiral: Letting Go of Our Childhood Trauma

In this podcast you're going to learn so much about my friend Liz, including how we met and her background which shaped her own disorders and dysfunctions that she has healed and continues to heal from.

I really respect Liz. She has been through so much and she's going to give us so much to take away on how we can break our negative mindset and behavior cycles, no matter what has happened for us in life.

We'll talk about never robbing someone of their process, how tall is a breakthrough at an early point in life, the healing spiral, the contraction and expansion, and why outside control starts with dividing family.

This isn't a conspiracy theory podcast, but Liz and I have a shared viewpoint on what's happening in our world, and why the American family specifically is being taken apart and what we can do about it.

We'll also talk about building connection with ourselves and our partner, and unblocking irrational fear to let go of trauma. I really think you're going to love, towards the end of the show, how much Liz cares for others, which is a direct reflection of how she cares for herself.

Now let's tune in with Liz Swail.
