POINT and COUNTERPOINT:
POINT … Linda Deir approached this issue from having lived it with a foot in two worlds, this one and the one we all came from. Mastery of living in 2 worlds simultaneously.
COUNTERPOINT … Ray Holley is addressing this issue from a reasoning, logical, academic point of view. Living in just this world.
Repressed Trauma …
- Where does the repressed trauma reside?
- How did It get there?
- How do you heal it!
Today we will focus on Part two of the “Guided Journal Writing System,” My Guided Journey. Watch the Video (above) … for this POINT and COUNTERPOINT perspective on how unresolved traumas leave you broken – stealing your life.
Traumatic memories hide in the brain. It’s the filters that affect everything you do in adulthood…i.e. your vision of yourself, emotions, relationships (personal and professional), affecting your decision-making.
This repressed trauma is hidden by the brain as the ego relentlessly protects the person from recalling the emotional pain and damage keeping you stuck in a sort of time capsule.
Traditional psychology and psychiatry methods say that to unearth these traumatic memories, you must return the brain to the same state of consciousness before the memory was encoded with the trauma. For most people, this occurred in childhood.
People who feel “exhausted” most of the time are like that because they spend so much energy suppressing traumatic emotions.
As a result of the trauma I experienced throughout childhood, I learned to live in 2 worlds simultaneously. This was the only way I made it through that childhood. Unwilling to accept defeat, I refused to be a victim but I did realize I was a target. Then, to my surprise, once I got out of that childhood only then did I realize what I had learned. It equipped me for success in my adult life. Against all odds, my life turned out better than even I dared to imagine – mastering living in two worlds. ~ Linda Deir
