I would like to share a traumatic experience that happened to me when I was a little girl. When I was around 4 or 5, a stranger sexually abused me. It ended quickly, but it scarred me for life. This scar stayed with me for years and years. I kept this secret with a feeling of hopelessness and shame. I went through psychological treatment and brought it up, as I thought that talking about it could help me heal. I even shared this traumatic experience with my partner, which also helped a bit. Then I got divorced (for other reasons of course) and went to therapy again, in which this trauma was identified as a crucial factor negatively affecting many aspects of my personal and romantic life, among them not being able to give birth, even though there was no identifiable physiological problem. I came to Eliyahu to in order to release my body from tension, and aided by his incredible intuition and compassion, I shared my traumatic past with him. Eliyahu led our session peacefully and gently and made me feel like I want to release this trauma that was burdening my life, to free myself from this lump that suffocated my life and my body. I wanted to share my story because I know there are thousands of women (and more than a few men) that have shared similar experiences, and that the trauma derived from it plays a big role in their lives, while stopping them from reaching their full potential (in my case even the ability to give birth). I want all of you to look in the mirror and say enough!!! I deserve a full life, free of the shadows that are trying to contaminate them, to live in the light, be at peace with my body and soul, and in some cases become a parent. I want to Thank you Eliyahu Sapir and to my inner child that said enough!!! I can live my life, I’m the one who decides who I am and who I can be, And I always choose new love, decisions, and beginnings.
