PTSD Healing Poetry

As a former Social Worker specializing in helping homeless Veterans find resources for Mental Health/PTSD, chemical/alcohol dependency, food, clothing, shelter, VA connections, and housing I found that self-medication (through alcohol) was the mechanism of choice. This was true for women and men who had been sexually abused in the military and even in homeless shelters by their peers. Having had two bouts of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) myself, I was able to identify with their sorrows. The difference was that I had connected in a special way through inspired rhyme from the Divine to combat the effects of PTSD. This gift in rhyme from the Divine allows a negative emotion or two to be safely removed without reliving any trauma! Risa Ruse http://RisaRuse.com

Spiritual Insight On Connecting to God Through The Pure of Heart


Soup Kitchen wisdom from visitor “JokeMan” said,“Teach our children how to pray together for the world because God listens to a pure heart!”  After Tweeting this for JokeMan I was inspired to write a poem in honor of the event published here:

What Kind of Seeds Have You Planted in Your Mind's Garden?

Again, everything has a place in perfect timing.... There were a couple areas of ground that were dug up in my lawn from the tree brushes being removed by the Town. The rain has softened the ground. I took the opportunity to pull up, gently the clover from other areas of the lawn that had a root system. I love clover.  Then I used a tool I have to break up the furl ground and planted those little clover plants rather than seeds. I said a prayer to have them take root and spread.  This is what I am doing now with my thoughts ridding poverty and growth of prosperity instead.  Sounds like the beginning of a new poem! 
Let's celebrate the day in a special way,

PTSD Healing Poetry

There is a disease of the mind called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It can effect any person at any time in their lives. Depending on the way the person is able to handle the trauma (such as a strong support system and connection to their Higher Power) it may last a short amount of time or typically 10 years. This is how long it took me to feel safe enough to let the repression out. The first time it came when I was 21 years old on my wedding day. I felt a release of JOY after holding onto the anger and loneliness after losing my mother to suicide when I was 11. Then this bubbled bliss lasted for about 11 years and then came back again after a sex abuse trauma I suffered as a mother with 4 children. It was only after becoming unemployed for these past 3 years have I had the time I needed to face all the emotions that blocked my JOY. This was achieved through my continued connection to the Divine inspired in rhyme. My goal now is to share this blessing that I received from my connection to Eternal Spirit who is also called, Jesus Christ. If you Google the keywords, PTSD Healing Poetry, you will see that I am not alone in using rhyme to heal from being brokenhearted. The difference is that my poetry heals an emotion or two at a time (making it safe to face) without reliving the trauma. In order to be truly whole we must leave the past behind and live in the present thinking only positive thoughts.

Yours in healing rhyme,
