The cost is $30 paid at least 2 days prior through paypal. A recording will be made if people are unable to attend at the time. If you want the recording and want to be present for the online presentation, it's $40.
Online Childhood Trauma Healing Support Group
I still have spaces for this Online Support group for Trauma Intelligence healing . This is not a therapy group but for facilitated support and sharing. Healing of childhood trauma is not meant to be done alone, and support is part of the healing process.

BLOG FOR THE SOUL
Quote of the Month: “Be mindful of the company you keep. Who are your friends? Why are they your friends?” ~Lori Luna
I wonder how many of you ask yourself about your friendships or the company you keep. How does it make you feel, in your body and emotions, to be around certain people? Do you listen to these signs? Do you evaluate them further? Do these others’ values resonate with your own? Do you feel you will need to give up a part of yourself to be around them? Do they tell you what to do and how to do it when you’re not looking for suggestions? Are you able to speak your truth if this happens? Do they have emotional expectations of you that put some kind of pressure to be a certain way or do things in a particular way? Are their values very different than your own? Does this make for a close connection? How closely connected do you really want to be with others in your life?
Over the years of deep personal growth, I have cleaned house of many relationships that were hindering me from being my true and authentic self. It wasn’t easy as I tend to be loyal in relationships, but there came a point in each one of the relationships that when I let go, there was such relief after. There was no way I would be able to live in my truth otherwise.
There is no compromising around this for me…particularly now. I ‘create’ my friendships in the authenticity of me.
I just read an article that said that we are ‘transgenic’ beings because of the people who surround us. We have a capacity in relationships that not only depend on our qualities but our genetic composition and the genetic composition of the friends we choose. Perhaps this is about our DNA talking to our friends’ DNA. (article in Evolution Newsfeed below)
For me, building trust in meeting new people who want to be more connected, is a process for me. I have to decide what their intention is in the connection, and whether they have qualities that would support a deepening of the relationship.
Vianna shares with us in the Manifestation and Abundance course that working with those around us, affects our energy in achieving our goals. If we have ideas and visions that are meaningful, it’s wise to trust them only to a few who are supportive otherwise they might project their beliefs of failure or anger onto us and attempt to sabotage us on various levels. And I have important goals and visions in what I’m here to do at this time, so I keep these within the context of close friends.
Recently, an old childhood connection contacted me on FB. We had been friends from ages 4 to 23 living down the street from each other. She had contacted me first in 2013 and forgot to look at my response on messenger. Four years between responses...dissociative skip? Clue #1.
When she somehow saw it recently, she apologized for not answering in all those years. She said that she originally contacted me to find out how I was doing. I had visited my home city in 1988, which was the last time I saw or spoke with her. In her words, “You said some shocking things the last time I saw you.” And this was only 2 years into my process.
The shocking things were my truths that were emerging as memories…that I had been extremely abused; and that I had even gone to the police about it at the time we connected. Just in her statement, I could feel this energy of sustained disbelief on her part which had not really changed over the years. She never attempted to contact me again in all those years to see how I was doing until her first FB messenger. Clue #2.
And in the way she wrote more, there was an odd statement thrown into the mix. She knew that I continued to work on the issues, helped others heal from abuse, (she probably read my website), and then interjected that ‘you needed to be away from ‘us’ to do it’. I wondered who is ‘us’? Did she mean her and her family? Did she mean her and my family? Did she mean the other friends we mutually knew? Or whom?? Why would she feel I needed to be 'away' (as if where she lived was my home), particularly from an unknown ‘us’ to heal? Clue #3.
In all that I discovered during those years apart in delving within, was that her parents had been part of the abuse. Though both her parents are dead now, I sensed that she hadn’t even gotten close to looking at the possibility of this as part of her own life. But I knew it had happened to her because I remembered witnessing it. Thus there hasn’t been any depth discovery on her part. Clue #4.
And in the way she responded to me, “Can we make a connection not based on our previous experiences but based on who we are now”, the statement felt minimizing, like what happened to me was a minor detail…we could just bypass it and be in the Now forgetting the truth of the past. Emotional bypassing is not how I want to consciously participate with others. She probably thought this is what healing from abuse included. Clue #5.
With her inability to recognize her own hidden truth, how it would impact our relationship in the present, and her thinking we could just move forward, I had a bodily response of feeling tightness that called me to listen inside. It was the clincher. Clue #6.
I take my body seriously. It’s been an ally all along (even when I didn’t recognize it that way through the journey). I asked Creator how I could respond to complete the communication as I was clear that it would never have a structure to feel connection, safety, trust, truth, or emotional intimacy. I ‘heard’ the words that would work the best. I knew she cared since she reached out; and without going into any explanation, said I wasn’t being guided to continue and didn’t want to further the conversation. I needed to stay with my inner signal. I cared. I wished her well.
She thanked me and wished me well. I appreciated that we could both release with no expectations or difficult feelings towards each other. It was the best outcome. I was grateful for the opportunity to stay with my feelings, my body, and with my truth. It was not my work to tell her what I knew about her life directly. I felt no need to be the one to wake her up. But I’m sure there will be a time in the future when more will be revealed… in another form... as some of it has started to be exposed on a documentary series recently. I love the way synchronicity works.
So consider the company you keep in staying true to yourself, and true friends will become part of the truth of your life.
Wishing you an expansive and fun summer solstice!
I extracted possible ‘theme’ beliefs from the story. Energy test yourself for them, practice clearing them through digging if applicable, and use Creator's teachings, including the ones below, if they fit.
*I am able to evaluate new relationships in how they are able to give me the type of support and emotional intimacy I deserve.
*I take on relationships that take me away from myself.
*All my friendships have qualities that support emotional intimacy.
*Letting go is difficult in relationships.
*I hold on longer than I need to in relationships for fear of:… loss …grief …abandonment …aloneness…loneliness…guilt…shame...ridicule...punishment...threats.
*To care about people means I have to keep them as a close part of my life.

'We Become Friends With Genetically Similar People' New Study Confirms
The researchers analyzed the genome of 1,932 people and compared pairs of friends with pairs of strangers. There was no biological affinity among all these people, but only the difference in the level of social relations between them. On average, according to the study, a friend of ours has a genetic affinity comparable to our fourth cousin, which means that we share about 1% of our genes our friends.
The Toxins That Affected Your Great-Grandparents Could Be In Your Genes

Earth’s Future is Not Written in Stone says extraterrestrial beings to human contact group
Extraterrestrial beings from other “realities” are reaching out to humans on planet Earth in order to raise our consciousness to become a self-responsible civilization and save us from self-destruction: Such is the basic premise behind 'Rahma', a contact group which says it’s been communicating with aliens since 1974. It was started by the son of a UFO researcher who at a young age experienced a life-changing accident, forever altering his perception of the higher power. Wells says he first came into contact with extraterrestrials when he along with his mother and sister received a psychographic message in their home in Lima. The beings were from Ganymede, one of the moons of Jupiter. In order to receive messages from more advanced civilizations, the aliens told the group that they must become true individuals and must realize that all humankind and life on earth is interconnected. It is then that we will be able to perceive the divine light and higher consciousness that is already within us all.
