Focus your prayer or meditation practice on promoting radical love and kindness to yourself. Then share that love with the rest of the universe to promote self and collective healing from pain, shame, and sorrow.
Repeat this practice for a week and see how your wellbeing improves.
Begin by sitting in a comfortable position and place one hand over your heart and the other over your stomach.
Call up an image of yourself around the time of your trauma and a second image of how you look currently, and state out loud the following:
May I be full of loving-kindness
May I be happy
May I be protected from inner and outer harm
May my pain and sorrow be eased
May I accept myself, just as I am
May I know the joy of being alive
