Life happens. We need to prep our toolbox.

I have been working on my personal development for a long time. I am versed in stress management, physical fitness, healthy eating, parenting techniques and the list goes on but even with knowing what I needed to do, I still reacted to the same things the same way.   With the introduction of LOGOSYNTHESIS™, the triggers that cause me to react no longer have the same effect.  I believe I have lots to work on but I do feel that I am making progress.  My results in dealing with stress are a strong motivator for me to share this tool.  However,  LOGOSYNTHESIS™ was developed as a tool for dealing with trauma.  Since my initial introduction in 2013, I have witnessed family and friends deal with deeply painful loss.

I feel our toolbox to cope with the grief of a stillbirth child, a child’s suicide or the breakup of a relationship needs to be better equipped.  While we all hope that we never have to deal with similar situations, life happens outside of our control. The trauma of the moment creates emotional imprints that impact each person differently, without truly understanding the depth or duration. LOGOSYNTHESIS™ has been used successfully over the past ten years by psychotherapists, provided patients feel safe and open to working with the tool.   My view is that the time to introduce this coping aid is not after a traumatic event.  We need to prepare ourselves and our loved ones before something happens so it is readily accessible when we need it the most.  I believe we need to start with working on the stress of everyday life and our limiting beliefs.  No one is immune.  If you feel you aren’t stressed or don’t stress someone else out, ask someone close to you for an honest answer.

Based on what I know of this system, I am confident that LOGOSYNTHESIS™ can help deal with anxiety, grief and trauma.  The challenge is get skilled and comfortable working with the tool now so that when something unexpected happens, we know where to turn.  We need to be open and receptive for the system to work but it is a fascinating tool that can produce results beyond our comprehension.  My goal is to help people start to build their toolbox so that when life deals us a hard blow, we have something we can readily access to lessen our suffering.
