#041 Free Yourself from Chronic Stress and Nervous System Dysfunction with Suzanne Gundersen

In this episode of IMperfectly Health, Faith interviews her personal coach Suzanne Gundersen, who is a holistic stress relief mentor, energy tapping expert, and advanced TRE provider. 

Her own early developmental trauma led her to seek holistic approaches that helped her shed layers of dysfunction, drop hundreds of pounds and use of anxiety medication.  Along the journey she uncovered her value to live with self-honor, compassion and grace. She then made a commitment to dedicate the rest of her professional life to helping others transform their stress, and connect with themselves, genuinely and deeply so they live life with real aliveness!   

In this episode, you are going to hear Suzanne share expertise and experience around:

  • her own experience with early trauma, chronic weight and anxiety struggles and how she discovered the path to her authentic self.
  • the importance of our early developmental years and how meeting our primary needs as infants shapes our entire life.
  • how stress plays out in the nervous system; fight, flight or freeze
  • how freeze leads to chronic health issues
  • how my own journey of unfreezing
  • how and why we learn to give up authenticity for attachment
  • the 3 M’s of transforming your limiting patterns.
  • steps to unraveling your survival patterns.
  • importance of addressing the mind/body/energy levels.
  • how and why we attached to our limiting stories and toxic stress patterns.
  • how our intuition is connected to the nervous system.
  • how 50% of what we tell about the past isn’t true.

#030 Healing the Mother Wound with Bethany Webster

 

Choosing to face and embrace the mother wound is not an easy path.  It is worth it though. It takes courage. It takes compassion.  It takes commitment. It takes self-honoring. And you deserve all of those things. Consider these powerful truths written by today’s guest…

“If we avoid dealing with the pain associated with one of THE most primary and foundational relationships in our lives, we are missing a pivotal opportunity to discover the truth of who we are and to authentically and joyfully live that truth.”  -Bethany Webster

“The peace we desire is covered up by layers and layers of defenses against the original pain we experienced as children but couldn’t feel or process at the time. “ – Bethany Webster

“Know that whatever you embrace transforms.” – Bethany Webster

In this episode of IMperfectly Healthy, I interview Bethany Webster – a writer, transformational coach, international speaker and what you could call a midwife of the heart. Her work is focused on helping women heal the mother wound so that they can step into their full power and potential. She teaches workshops, an online course and offers a coaching program for women leaders who want to accelerate their impact and leadership.
In this episode, you are going to hear Bethany share her wisdom on:
  • what the mother wound is and why healing it will empower you, liberate you and free you from your struggles in life.
  • the 3 aspects of the mother wound: personal, cultural and spiritual.
  • what gets in the way of looking at the mother wound.
  • the dysfunctional daughter/mother patterns that show up.
  • the ways we replicate our childhood dynamics in our current lives.
  • how the false self is developed as a survival strategy to childhood.
  • the common painful themes that show up for women: people pleasing, scarcity, low self-worth, deprivation, struggle, guilt, over-doing, denying needs, parentification, playing small, and more.
  • why so many women feel unexplained guilt, and where it comes from.
  • how the mother wound and food/body image are tightly connected
  • why your hungry is holy.
  • how to overcome your resistance to looking at your mother wound.
  • how to begin healing your inner child.
  • the importance of creating your own inner mother.
  • why both internal and external work is needed.
