Through the process of self-analysis and self-compassion, it is possible to heal years of compounded trauma and 'baggage'. It is a natural process to respond to traumas by storing emotional baggage by repressing hurtful memories. It is normal to expect the worst in an effort to self-preserve. This negative expectation leads to long-term faulty thinking; and eventually subconscious self-destruction through learned helplessness. Niqqi has spent a decade studying trauma and its effects. There is no escaping trauma through denial. When we attempt to do so, we bury them and give them control over our minds, bodies, souls, and hearts. Niqqi lived for years as a survivor of compounded trauma - in denial. She viewed herself as successful. Her favorite line was: "I don't look like what I've been through!" She had no idea she looked exactly like what she had been through – internally. She began to take analysis of herself. She learned that her past traumas were buried inside of her psyche, controlling every aspect of her life. Her family lived in extreme poverty when she was young. She was kidnapped at the age of ten. She experienced physical and mental abuse, as well as neglect, throughout her childhood. She married an abusive man who held her hostage for hours and attempted to take her life. Through self-awareness and self-compassion, she learned how to face trauma head-on in an effort to minimize its effects. In order to conquer trauma we have to go through it; not over it, not around it, and not under it – but straight through it. Niqqi no longer views herself as a victim who survived and became a survivor. She is a Thrive-or! Through self-analysis and self-compassion, learn how to minimize and eliminate baggage by discovering The I of YOU!
