Still Working… Still Moving Forward

For those following here who are waiting for the book to come out, I thought I’d post an update.

There have been so many little delays cropping up – internet being down for a few days, Mercury retrograde interruptions and distractions, and perhaps me overestimating just how much work I can humanly do in a day, especially still having chronic back pain that limits how much sitting I can do each day. If only I could just work and not eat, sleep or grocery shop! And, skip things like Thanksgiving, etc. and one risks being called a grinch about holidays. So it seems I am keeping up with life as well as working to keep up with publishing the book!

I did just accomplish a major milestone this week: I finished all the edits from my editor for the entire manuscript. I now have a fresh copy that I will be reading through – as quickly but as accurately as possible – and will then be working on uploading it to a self-publishing website for formatting and publication.

Other things that slowed work down on the book were finishing up a new Level I certification in Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE), but this is a very worthwhile “distraction” from the book work. It’s very important to me to have skills in place for helping others recover from trauma. The process of TRE – a series of exercises designed to fatigue the muscles of the feet, legs and lower torso enough to bring on body tremors, these tremors being the trauma release mechanism all living organisms inherently have within. Human beings have the unique capability of suppressing their natural tremoring for trauma release, often because they don’t want to appear to have lost control of themselves. So TRE is a way of retraining the body to get back in touch with it’s natural trauma releasing process.

I will be working on my Level II TRE certification in the new year, which will allow me to work with groups – and after the completion of the book!

Many Blessings,

Niara
