My book of poetry, "Stripping- My fight to find Me" is a story of the triumph of the human spirit. It is a story of our deep need for connection and the infinite power of love to heal.

I am energy. I am infinity. But I am also a poet, author, artist. wife, mother, sleep doctor, and attachment and complex childhood trauma survivor. I healed only when I understood I was broken, not a victim. I learnt that everything I needed was within me. And that my inner life was the essence and driving force of my existence.

Where did Self Love Self Care First® come from?

I needed to find meaning in my suffering so I kept thinking, “What truth did I come out of this journey with? How can I share what I know in forms other than what I receive through my poetry? What is the most foundational and fundamental truth about human existence that I discovered to be true in my suffering? That is where SLSCF® comes from.

I discovered that if we do not know our truth, we cannot love ourselves. The pain and suffering of our lives, the false external messages about life, success and achievement that we receive, and the projections and imposed expectations of others we are subjected to, mangle our truth, distract us from our destined path, and cut deep into our body, mind, and soul. They cause us to not pay attention to ourselves, and to how we live our lives. These feelings and beliefs descend into our unconscious and become habitual patterns that hijack our lives.

SelfLoveSelfCareFirst® is the journey of truthful self-examination and acceptance of our truth. Only when we are ready to find value, love, and compassion for our true selves do we begin to live free.

This blog is a celebration of love, stillness, growth, joy, discovery, and the truth. The conversation is honest, the topics are varied, the perspectives are from many angles, but the common thread weaving the discussions together is Self Love Self Care First®.

You are not moving towards any light. There is no light out there. It is inside you. You must move inwards- not outwards to look for it. No one can guide you there. Only you can give yourself the permission to embark on this journey. Only you can reclaim yourself.

Your freedom is in your hands.

Trauma leads to Transformation and Transcendence if We Let It


It's Sunita here,

We are living in a time when we are starting to understand trauma in ways that are leading to effective treatments.

In addition to treatment of trauma, we need shared stories of lived and learned experiences of healing from trauma.

That is what TWBH offers.

I know from my own experience that trauma can be treated in ways that allow us to move forward with the essence of who we truly are. This is accompanied with the capacity to learn new skills and ways of looking at our experiences that are positive, warm, and fresh.

Yes, our trauma may never leave us but it can be transformed in ways that set us free to lead authentic, powerful, creative and fulfilling lives of meaning and purpose.

The world needs our contributions.

We have much to offer.

Trauma can be the beginning of our journey of transformation.

And even transcendence.

TWBH-The Way back Home is through doing the work.

TWBH- The Poetry. The Process. The Practice. The Provisions.

Moving forwards,
