Olga Waters: From Survivor to Thriver: Why am I here?
Being a womb twin is a unique and personal one that involves completing the individual soul that was once part of a multiple. There are many ways to successfully work with womb twins that can bring deep healing in their present life experience.
When working with the womb twin psyche, it is necessary to take both the individual experience as well as the overarching ancestral dynamic into account in order to reach a full and deep understanding of life that only womb twins can have. This allows for moving the womb twin from a place of lack, loss, or incompleteness to a place of wholeness. By taking a holistic approach, looking at the physical, emotional, energetic, and ancestral aspects of being, we can release any limitations or issues that may be related to being a womb twin so that life may be embraced fully.
Jakeb Moulis: To be a surviving womb twin can cause deep suffering. The truth is that it also gives us wonderful gifts if we are wide open to accepting them.
For the last few years, I have focused on primary therapy with my clients. It is extremely surprising how often the disappearance of a womb twin appears in them. Now I can finally say; Thanks to my own injury and the observation of others, I was able to find a way to release tension and express integrity in my body, where the loss of the twin is strongly imprinted. I work mostly on the somatic level of injury, which carries with it an emotional touch, in groups and individually.
Eva Sochorová: My never-ending story: I will never love again. I do not want to live without you. Insane or cursed to be alone?
I am a womb twin, I am 35 and I live in Prague. Formerly a lawyer, now a therapist, I help people encumbered with trauma find their peace. I am currently undergoing training in biodynamic body-psychotherapy and Erogenetic body-psychotherapy. In addition, my mission is to break the silence and to spread the information on prenatal and perinatal trauma in the Czech Republic, especially womb twin loss and impacts of abortion on the following child.
