Loss, Trauma and Stigma.

3 Triggers to Mindfully Open my Mouth and Spread my Words.
Actually, it took me 4 years (not 3) to get to My New Job Position after being declared Medically Unfit.

What am I doing here?

When I created PTSD Beautiful Trauma, in 2018, the first time, the website had the intention to share my personal journey with the rest of the world and inspire other Souls likewise: my recovery coping with PTSD and my fight, in a retraining program of a world company, against stigma. This time, after being confirmed in my position, 3 years after breaking down and 5 years in the aftermath of Paris attacks, I feel more focused and my actual purposes are 1. spreading and rising PTSD and Mental Health awareness in a creative and artistic way 2. showing my self and telling my story in order to guide you through the Butterfly stages and the Dark Night of the Soul 3. building a beautiful Resilience Community.

As Parisian Sparkle, I am Author on Amazon (2018), speak 5 languages (Italian, French, English, German and Spanish), long career in Tourism, got skills as catalyst in special events/Festivals organisation to promote the Native American Cultures with Blackfeet Goodstriker Family and ethnologist Carla Fornasari Red Eagle Woman adopted by Indian Tribes; I have also been proud jury and mentoring local poets in Italian high schools in 2000s. Born in Rimini, Italy, in a dark moon, I moved to France in 2007 at age 33. My first self published dystopic memoir (Italian only) is a track of my healing journey during trauma, and my new countercultural Self-help book is on the go in 2020 (English version). In 2018, I attended a School for Sophrology, “Institut de Formation”, in Paris, where I learnt how to use my Voice for Visualisation and you can follow Me, on the You Tube Channel, as Coping with PTSD Beautiful Trauma for Guided Meditations. When I was in the hardships of my private storm, I promised my Self to give a “happy end” to this story, so let the story begins.

What’s PTSD?

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that’s triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.

You mean, what’s a nice girl like me doing in a dump like this, instead of raising a family? Simple. I own a third of Murphy’s operation, I’m not that nice, and these monkeys… are my family.

Are you a passenger on a ghost ship or are you a pilot?

Me too, My-self, I have been a ghost ship, passing by last 5 years. Or maybe even much longer. Where damn have I been all this forgetful time? Well, I’ve found my shelter in the Present Moment. My hut, my happy go-to place: My inner Self.
