An individual who was sexually abused as a child is an adult survivor of child sexual abuse. This abuse may have had long-term effects on the survivor’s life. In most instances, the victim of the abuse never discussed the abuse with others while it was occurring. This individual is learning now, as an adult, to deal with the effects of the abuse.
Possible Long-Term Effects:
Each individual’s experiences and reactions are unique to that individual. However, with so many survivors breaking the silence and talking about their experiences, it has become apparent that there are some responses to child sexual abuse that are common to many survivors.
Feelings of extremely low self-esteem or self-hatred are common in survivors. Extreme depression is something with which survivors also battle.
Survivors often experience frequent sleep disturbances and nightmares. Links have been made between this and the fact that children are often sexually abused in their rooms, in their own beds.
Trust is a crucial issue for many survivors throughout their lives. They were betrayed by the very people who cared for them, who insisted they loved them even while abusing them.
Re-victimization describes the process whereby women who were sexually abused as children frequently find themselves in abusive, dangerous situations, or relationships as adults.
Survivors with disabilities who experienced sexual abuse in childhood might never have reached a level of independence to escape this abuse and it has become a way of life.
Its that time of year where we get caught up in all the gatherings, Christmas parties, meeting with family and friends and yes plenty of shopping. We find ourselves moving at a fast pace, with the great temptation to keep up with the Jones. And some how all of these things that were suppose to bring great joy, end up delivering great misery, sadness and depression. US World News reports researched and found that the suicide rate is the highest its been in 25 yrs. And really we just still have a difficult time finding ways to cope with this common enemy. Were afraid to speak to our friends, minister and find ourselve in a pit of despair. For those who have battled depression, they understand how dibilitating it is. The shame and stigma of not having it all together. Lossed loved ones, unexpected divorce, traumatic childhood. How can we fight this enemy and defeat it? Whats a proper response to it? And how can we encourage others rather than casting blame?

"Backward turn backward O time in your flight, make me a child again just for tonight!'
In my mind's eye, I see it so clearly. Christmas was always a festive holiday while growing up. Pa Paun, my father always got up at 4:30 a.m. to start the furnace and Ma Paun, my mothers would get up shortly after Pa and begin her Christmas Baking...bread, jelly doughnuts, strudel cakes and I would be in the dining room playing with my cut-out dolls. Ah, the aroma, the fragrance, the memories.
Many of us have lasting memories from our childhood holidays. Many memories are tied to traditions that get passed down for generations and the mere practice today stirs emotions.
According to the experts, memories are cemented not because of WHAT we do but HOW we do it. It's about how we share experiences together.
Repetition of an activity...etc.
Memories are based on...etc.
Rehash memories in you mind daily...etc.

My name is LeAndra. I am a Psychic, a Lightworker, a Medium, a Reiki Master Teacher and an Ayurvedic Practitioner.As a psychic I help others by offering insight into the energy of their life. Energy is very slippery. As a psychic I am tuned into the energy of the world around me, while at the same time staying grounded. This enables me to receive insights that I do my best to interpret so this info, knowledge or wisdom can be passed on to you. In my own life, I go by feel. From my experience sometimes trying too hard to understand leads to not paying attention. My mediumship has been around as long as my psychic abilities. My childhood wasn’t haunted by lots of people who had died. What I experienced was their light essence, amongst other things. Later into my teen years things began to change.I am able to channel and see light frequencies. This is a basic description of lightwork. These are gifts passed down to me from my ma’s side of the family. Lightwork is a very ancient healing modality. I use it mainly for people in extreme stress and life energy blockages. I really cherish this so much. Reiki. I just love it. When reiki came into my life, it was at the end of a really big transition and it really helped me bring my Lightwork forth. It’s a lovely modality. I really encourage the Reiki practitioners out in the world to keep on using their skills. I was initially attuned in the western tradition and several years ago into the eastern tradition as well. Reiki is just another form of pranic healing. Prana is vital energy.I am an Ayurvedic Practitioner. Ayurveda is a medical science from India http://www.ancientwisdomhealingservices.com/
