Traditional Native Healing for Trauma Recovery with Arrole Lawrence

Arrole Lawrence uses a unique Native Healing approach to help trauma survivors. He is recognized as an Elder, Saulteaux healer and band member of the Keeseekoowenin First Nation located in Elphinstone, Manitoba. But he resides in Ontario and provides his unique brand of healing throughout Ontario.
He gives us a few key takeaways:
1. You can have a “calling” to change your life, listen! This is a huge opportunity to grow.
2. It is possible to heal by going to the core of your trauma (or as Arrole calls it the “Zero point”).
3. Research on epigenetics explains that what occurs in previous generations can impact you today.
4. You can unhook yourself from a traumatic past and find a route to recovery.

How to Comfort Yourself with Transitional Objects

In childhood psychology, Donald Woods Winnicott proposed a key concept called “transitional objects” as a phase of his developmental system.

In the “transitional object” phase, the young child begins to separate his identity from others’ identities such as his mother’s. The child will obtain an object such as a teddy bear or a blanket that is used as a defense against anxiety.

The same technique can be used for trauma survivors seeking comfort.

Watch this video to help you find your feel-good transitional object today.
