Hi babies! Sending you much deep breathing and peace.

I wanted to write a post about CPTSD and Trauma healing!

Now you may be thinking, "PTSD? I don't suffer from that, you only hear about that from people in the military..." oh baby, you have no idea.

I work with an AMAZING and beautiful Life Coach. Her name is Shyla Cash. She's a proud and gorgeous Canadian and I just don't get tired of hearing her say "about" with her accent HAHA. Most importantly, she has helped me understand what CPTSD is and has been sooo crucial in my healing journey.

Check out her website at: and join her free Facebook group at

I work with Shyla one on one and we are working together for 6 months to heal childhood trauma, co-dependency, CPTSD and the overactive mind.

Now what is CPTSD?

Complex post-traumatic stress disorder (complex PTSD, sometimes abbreviated to c-PTSD or CPTSD) is a condition where you experience some symptoms of PTSD along with some additional symptoms, such as:

  • difficulty controlling your emotions

  • feeling very hostile or distrustful towards the world

  • constant feelings of emptiness or hopelessness

  • feeling as if you are permanently damaged or worthless

  • feeling as if you are completely different to other people

  • feeling like nobody can understand what happened to you

  • avoiding friendships and relationships, or finding them very difficult

  • often experiencing dissociative symptoms such as depersonalization or derealization

  • regular suicidal feelings.

Shyla has given me so much hope and has been such a blessing with her patience, realness and love. She does not baby you. Trust me, I've had moments where I wanted her to baby me and used the victim card, but she redirected my ass real quick hahaha.

I wanted to share the below video she has on her Youtube Channel that was sooo helpful for me.

Shyla has helped me understand the conditioned mind and how to peel the layers away. She is so sweet and motivating. Her own story of healing is very inspiring.

If you feel Shyla's work resonates with you, check her out and reach out to her.

I'm so excited to share my results with her a couple months from now :)

Happy Healing!!
