Returning ourselves back to who we really are under the trauma put upon us.
Resuming course with the big her: Mother Nature. Her wisdom, nurturing, power, medicine, and sanctuary.
Reclaiming our rights of belonging, freedom, individuality, resolve, and nourishment.
I got you – I got myself
In my journeys of healing trauma, I have come across common denominators amongst numerous survivors. We all want:
To be free
To find resolution
To be cared for
To be our own
Our histories may be different but our desires are the same. This is what we didn’t get and what we need to thrive. Our basic humanity depends on having all five pillars of livelihood.
When we start to look for answers or people to help us, we are seeking those that say, “I got you,” so we can release our stuck survival instincts and traumas in places that can hold us. This is where belonging, resolution, and nourishment/care come in. Time in these places teach us how to say, “I got myself.” Knowing you have yourself brings you freedom to be your own individual without conditioned responses and survival reactions. It installs the strength and power to stand up against what would have traumatized you before.
This site is about the journey to ourselves.
And returning to HER.
I say “her” because I am a woman who has been harmed. While both sexes have histories of trauma, it is the women who have been dealt with a severe hand of oppression from 10,000 years of misogyny. To this day, we are yet to be liberated from it. It holds us in every institution from relationships to politics. We have lost our rituals of belonging, communities of pride and support from other women, and the teachings of how to access our power from Mother Earth. From her womb to ours, whether ours is functional or not, she has given us the template for life from creation to destruction to recreation. I speak with desire to return to this “her.” Within us and within earth.

About Laura Rose and Her
Having dealt with just about every kind of trauma out there, I am determined to reclaim my power stolen from me. This site is my story. It is also the collection of my endless research on trauma, abuse, healing, and its impact on women in particular.
Since 2016, I’ve been in intensive therapy and a personal quest to learn all about healing. Prior to that, I was a Pilates rehabilitation therapist for injury and chronic pain. I was also educated as a holistic nutritionist. What I’ve discovered is our suppressed trauma is the missing key to overcoming physical and mental distress.
My blog is where I share my stories and experiences.
Healing Trauma is my collection of therapies, theories, and educational sources on recovery.
Her: Woman Power is my passion for women returning to their innate power suppressed by the patriarchy.
Healing in Action is my practice. I’m now combining everything I know from my professional years with my current experience healing trauma to create a somatic based practice that involves movement, environment, energetic connection, and emotional attunement. This page is a first step into my practice.
To dive deeper into healing in action, follow me on Patreon where I share videos on resourcing, safe emotional and sensory expression, embodied exercises, and finding your own intuitive energetic way of reclaiming your body, mind, and innate power.
