FREE E-book: Healing the Subtle Body Wounds of Sexual Abuse and Trauma
This FREE E-book (just click the image to download) is a self-guided energy healing program for healing the subtle body wounds of sexual trauma and abuse in women. Consisting of 10 energy healing practices including journaling, meditation, and visualizations, this program is designed to help you gently surface and heal energetic issues in your chakras (energy centers), and then to help you connect with your sacral (second) chakra – the seat of feminine power – in a new and empowered way. This program is not meant to replace therapy or any other healing support, but may augment that for you, if you are interested in working at an energetic level. No prior chakra experience or knowledge is necessary, and guided audio files are provided to help you along if you would like to use them.
This program is based on work I have been doing with women that have come to me in the last few years for classes, as well as some I have worked with remotely after they contacted me in response to my 21 Ways to Care For Your Sacral Chakra post. Although it is primarily designed to help women heal energy-body wounds from sexual trauma and abuse, I actually think any woman can benefit from this work, as it is designed to heal and strengthen our entire energy body, and connect us most specifically with the feminine power inherent in our sacral (second chakras).
Below I have posted an excerpt from the introduction, as well as the Table of Contents. Note that all of the meditation and energy work practices are also available as audio files (mp3s). Although I recommend doing the entire set of 10 practices, you can select individual practices as well if you like.
On a personal note, I’d like to add that this E-book was an ‘assignment’ of mine, from the universe if you will, and I feel there are many woman who could benefit from it – that it has been called forth for them. Although I wrote it down, it’s not from me. Please help me spread the word about it, so every woman that could benefit from it can find it. It has been an honor and privilege to be given, and to share, these practices.
I would like to thank Cyndi Dale, whose intensive 1-year program helped me complete this e-book, and which really helped me develop this work. I would also like to thank Yeshe Tsogyal and Green Tara, whom I feel helped me along (and will help anyone who engages in this work.) And mostly I would like to thank the women who have already engaged in this process with me, for sharing their insights and themselves, so that others might benefit.
P.S. Please note that if you are interested in more women’s energetics work, I now offer an 8-week, self-paced course through DailyOm called Fall in Love With Your Feminine Power, which includes print, video, and audio material. This summer I am also offering an intensive 4-week teleseminar on Energy Healing for Sexual Abuse and Trauma.

EXCERPT AND TABLE OF CONTENTS:
This e-book will guide you through a set of exercises for clearing and healing your subtle body of energetic wounds resulting from sexual trauma or abuse. It is based on principles from many different energy healing traditions, and on the very important idea that any of us can facilitate our own healing through working with our own subtle body. These practices are not meant to replace counseling or treatment from professionals of any type, but may augment other help you receive or work you have done on yourself.
Most of all, this e-book is meant to empower you.
One of the most devastating consequences of sexual trauma and abuse is the sense of disempowerment they create. From the perspective of energy body teachings, sexual abuse and trauma most directly impact our first and second energy centers, or chakras – the root of our energetic being. When these are impacted, we often feel as if we cannot fully own our personal power or potential, no matter how successful we may appear in the outer world. By helping you to work directly with these chakras yourself, the exercises in this e-book will help you to reconnect to your own power, and your own ability to self-heal. When this foundation is restored, energy can move through your entire being more freely, empowering every aspect of your life.
You don’t need any prior knowledge of energy healing, subtle anatomy, or the chakras in order to benefit from the exercises in this book. I’ve designed this program for any woman to follow, and I’ve included audio files on my accompanying website to help you along. If you’re interested in learning more about the chakras, I also have many resources online that you can use to do so, but that’s up to you. This is a ‘doing’ e-book – I want to help you jump in and begin to work with your energy body directly. You don’t have to understand chakra theory or full subtle anatomy to do this, anymore than you need to read about dance and understand its history in order to dance around your living room.
You also don’t have to be a victim of overt sexual trauma or abuse to benefit from these exercises. Frankly, I feel that every woman on the planet should engage in a process of this type at some point in her life. Often our subtle body – and our lower chakras in particular – hold emotions or blocks related to sexual inequities, harassment, or cultural imbalances that we may not even be conscious of. The exercises here are designed to first surface, release and heal those wounds and blocks, and then to reconnect us to the natural energies and unique spiritual power of our sacral (second) chakra. In addition to the personal benefits, any woman that does this begins to emit a new kind of light, contributing to the rebalancing of energies that is currently occurring in the world, as these issues get addressed on a wider, and more public, level in our society.
However, if you have experienced sexual trauma or abuse, it’s important not to view this e-book as a replacement for counseling or therapy. Although I believe in the power of energy healing, it is based on the mind-body connection, and we often need to address both the mind and body through other means as well. If you have been the victim of sexual abuse or violence of any sort at any point in your life, please seek professional help if you have not done so already. Whether your abuse or violent event(s) took place recently or years ago, you can benefit from professional help, and there are many affordable options. I have included some resources to get you started in the Appendix, but please also go online and research more for yourself. This energetic process will benefit you more once you have completed, or are at the very least engaged in, a therapeutic process.
In the first two sections of this e-book, I will provide you with some guidelines for working with the exercises, and with preparatory steps you can take to maximize the benefits you will receive from them. After that, each section describes a practice, and links to an audio file online you can use to guide you through that exercise if you prefer (although each exercise is fully described here.) Please don’t hesitate to contact me through my website or by emailing me directly at lameditation [at] earthlink [dot] net at any time with questions. I am honored to be participating in your healing process, and am here to help.
So now we begin! Peace-
