    For Those Who Struggle with Self- Rejection You Are Accepted in the Christ

    in Spirituality

    This episode of A Sound Heart will explore self-rejection due to early childhood abuse.  This is an ongoing problem not only in western "culture" such as it is, but also the world at large.  We seem to be placing bandages over the gaping wounds of abused ones in our society.  Persons are highly abusive today due to many obvious and not so obvious factors.  Spiritual pollution is chronic, but is marginalized by the myopic media.  The Word of God offers genuine hope to those who have been traumatized (wounded) by unspeakable abuse.

    The Little Girl Who White Supremacist, Ben Fields Attacked Is A Recent Orphan

    in Entertainment

    Life, for many of us, is hard.

    Life for a 16-year-old black girl in the New South living in a foster home is no crystal stair.


    In an interview with the Daily News, Todd Rutherford, the respected Columbia, S.C., attorney representing the assault victim of the recently terminated Deputy Ben Fields, revealed that his client, in addition to suffering injuries on her face, neck, and arm, is a recent orphan living in foster care.

    You can subscribe to our patreon here. 

    And a one time investment would be appreciated here. 

    While her identity, no doubt, will eventually be leaked to the media, it's the goal of her foster mother to protect and care for her as well as she can considering the circumstances. She communicated to us that the young victim is devastated and emotionally traumatized by all that has happened to her.

    School, as you can imagine, could be particularly tough for a young girl who has experienced so much pain and loss in her young life. To think that she has now suffered police brutality and is facing trumped up criminal charges for age-appropriate classroom behavior is just despicable.

    There was also another police murder in #Ferguson

    A cop that murdered a young white man won't be charged. 

    And we have a Boko Haram Update.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1211

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Ellyn Roberts Bell from Pacifica, California, and Stacey Ault Bell from Sacramento, California (not related), co-authors of "Singing with the Sirens: Overcoming the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Sexual Exploitation," available at Amazon. Poetic, hopeful, and powerful, "Singing with the Sirens" is a call for wounded women everywhere to reclaim their own truth, spirit, and to sing with their authentic voice. Both are trained as social workers and are they're partners in Bella Invictus Consulting for Personal and Social Change. Both are also survivors of childhood sexual abuse and exploitation. Numerous women in our culture have experienced shame, degradation, and despair as a result of having been sexually traumatized early in life. In "Singing with the Sirens," experts Ellyn Bell and Stacey Bell address the long term complex trauma that results from the sexual abuse and exploitation of girls and young women, drawing on their personal and professional experiences to explore the link between the sexual abuse of children, issues of attachment and safety, and the commercial exploitation of young people. But this is not strictly a scholarly book or a memoir of personal experience; rather, the authors address this problem from a perspective of self-realization and transformation, taking the reader on a journey through mythological tales toward finding healing from within.

    Traumatic Stress and Black America

    in Current Events

    Every therapist agrees that the impact of a traumatic event goes beyond physical damage. The emotional toll can result in a wide range of intense emotions and it takes time to recover emotional equilibrium. Being Black in America can be extraordinarily stressful.  Being treated as “second class” citizen, called names, and being excluded shatter all sense of security, causing feelings of helpless and vulnerability in a dangerous world where  feelings of anxiousness and  uncertainty.  These unsettling thoughts and feelings can only fade if life circumstances change. How to cope with feelings of injustice, racism and covert discrimination is a topic of debate in many Black American communities.

    People react in different ways to traumatic events. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to think, feel or respond. The American public is intolerant of the reactions and feelings of Black Americans in Baltimore when they rioted protesting the murder of an unarmed Black American man. The city was put under curfew and the street activists were called “thugs”. There was no effort to send in counselors to help the “traumatized” people with the emotional event. 

    Persons who ignore feelings will slow the healing process; however, in the Black community, “forgive and forget” is the tenet. Following the killing of nine Black people in Charleston, South Carolina in a church during a prayer meeting by a young White American, statements of “we forgive him” were made before the dead was buried. That is not benevolence; that is denial.

     The symptoms of traumatic stress include physical manifestations as well as emotional, such as, pounding  heart, feelings of choked up, stomach churning, racing thoughts, raised blood pressure, headaches and difficulty sleeping.
