2 - Ticket To Admission

November 3, 2019

In this show, we are exploring one of our best friends: Denial

Denial is a natural mechanism built in to all humans to allow us to feel safer so that we can move forward with life. It is an excellent protection device for things we just cannot seem to handle at the time. When engaged in denial, we spend time saying things are not there, when they are. We refuse to acknowledge them because that may require something of us that is too much of a toll for where we currently are. During those times, we need that safety mechanism in place. It is no different than how our bodies go into physical shock. Shock is a protection that happens automatically to numb our senses. We don’t tell our bodies to go into shock, anymore than we told ourselves to engage in denial. Denial naturally kicks in for us because it is painful to look at what happened.

The problem is: Denial can become a way of life. Once you rely on it for coping with a traumatic event, you may find yourself engaging in it about many things. It becomes a way of life that is not true to us or others.

Breaking Free gives listeners, both male and female, ways to reduce the emotional effects of sexual abuse and live full, beautiful lives

22- Triggered

22- Triggered

August 24, 2020

In episode 22, Lyra Adams speaks to the complexity of deep trauma and how it can be repressed in our memories, often without us knowing it. Instead, we are often triggered by things that may initially seem to have no connection. Ultimately, she asks that we each safeguard our emotions during this time by selectively determining what our threshold is for information, images and conflict that may affect us on a daily basis.

25 - Trust Your Path

25 - Trust Your Path

October 5, 2020

Trust, Commit & Ground To Your Path

Welcome to this episode of Breaking Free in which we will explore the concept of self-trust. Whether acute trauma has been endured or not, all humans experience numerous time periods of self doubt. It is at these times that we wish life did come with a step-by-step instruction manual that would simply tell us the next move to make.

Some of you who have been on a self-discovery and healing path for awhile have honed your skills to be able to easily discern which direction to take when you come to a fork in the road. Some of you are just beginning and could be standing still, not progressing, because you are not sure of what to do next. Even the most seasoned, healed survivor will run up against new situations that make them question their potential decisions. Today, I am going to give you what some people may find as odd advice, but I know is profoundly beneficial for sorting things out and making strong commitments and decisions. Further, you can do so with a newfound trust you feel inside.
