When someone has an inner sense of safety, it is possible for them to be in their body and to express themselves. In order for someone to inhabit their body, they will need to feel safe enough to do so. Childhood trauma can damage this inner sense of safety.
As this component is in place, they will feel comfortable expressing who they are – their true-self. However, just because someone experiences life in this way, it doesn’t mean that they are aware of why their life is this way.
Part of Life
For most, if not all, of their life, they may have inhabited their body and expressed their true-self. There will still be moments when they lose touch with their body, but it’s not a normal part of their life.
When they lose touch with their body, it can mean that they won’t be aware of how they feel or what their needs are. This can take place when they are using their phone or when they are on a computer, for instance.
