Beautiful & Beloved thrives on helping women heal in three key arenas of life
Spirit // We recognize there are moments and situations in life that are often beyond our control. For many, that belief is in God, namely the person of Jesus as our Healer. For others, it's in a Higher Power, the Universe, a Greater Being that you find your hope. No matter where you are when it comes to faith, Beautiful & Beloved is a safe place for you. Your spirit needs to be fed as much as any other part of your body. Giving your Spirit the space and freedom to express itself and find your faith is often the first step towards true healing. Whatever your beliefs may be, even if the names God and Jesus are a trigger for you, believing in a higher power for healing can help us find forgiveness, peace, and healing from our hurts.
Body // Because trauma is stored in our bodies, somatic healing practices are essential to healing. Beautiful & Beloved is designed to come alongside you as you walk through the 'ish' of life. Your feelings, experiences, and memories that you suffered often present themselves through your body's signals. Whether it's a specific event or everyday life, connecting with your body will allow you to process through trauma and start healing your body from the inside out. Our goal is to get you so in tune with your body that you can confidently articulate to your counselor, pastor, or therapist exactly what you're experiencing in your body.
Mind // Trauma on the mind can leave our brains stuck on a moment or experience that can poison our thinking. It's so easy to keep believing a lie about who you are as a person. When you're stuck in trauma, your brain can repeat that same lie over and over again. Beautiful & Beloved can rebuke the lie trauma tells so you can focus on what is true and beautiful and powerful about yourself.
