Healing Trauma Through Spirituality
March 26, 2015
Hosted by Dr. Paula Joyce
When someone experiences a traumatic event or ongoing abuse, spiritual questions invariably emerge, like: Why me? How could God let this happen? Why am I suffering when the perpetrator is doing great? Isn't life supposed to be fair? People have varied responses from turning away from God or religion to moving closer to God in their search for answers and personal healing. I remember the year that Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor, wrote a poignant open letter in The New York Times saying that he could no longer remain estranged from God. Although he still could not understand how God could let the Holocaust happen, he had finally made peace with God and by so doing was able to heal at a deeper level. All who have suffered through trauma must find their unique answers. Dr. Chris Courtois, a highly respected voice in the psychoanalytic community, was the first therapist who I heard talk about the need for spirituality in healing trauma.

Learning to see life from a spiritual perspective can change the way we think, which changes everything. As we let go of fear, worry, regret, blame, anger, guilt, resentment, jealousy and shame, we can create the loving, joyful, prosperous, healthy life that we want and deserve.
The best or worst place to live is in our own mind. You will learn how to weed out the negativity and to be grateful and positive in word, thought and deed, resulting in your ever-increasing happiness.
