Angelica Horvatic

Worldwide Trauma Recovery Practitioner

Our bodies haven’t evolved to take in this much information.

For most human history, we only knew what was happening in our family, in our tribe, in our community, in our village.

Today our body is in a constant state of fight or flight.

When we are in fight or flight we have less access to empathy and regulation.

Divisiveness and resentment is the end result.

Being exposed over and over again to this suffering without any resolve, we don’t get to go back into a parasympathetic state.

We start to view the world as completely unsafe and hostile because our body does’t get the recovery it needs to thrive.

We enter survival mode.

Just as it’s important to be connected and know what’s going on in the world, it’s equally important to be disconnected.

And to be in stillness, with friends, and in peace.

We cannot change anything around us if we are dysregulated and unable to cope.

We cannot change anything around us if our dysregulation has us lashing out, shutting down, or we are unable to see any perspective outside of our own.

Disconnect: your body will thank you.
