Which types of trauma have you experienced or witnessed? Were you or anyone else harmed or killed?  Are conscious or subconscious memories causing fear, helplessness, anxiety or other bodily or emotional reactions many years later? 

  • Developmental Trauma Disorder, Attachment Trauma, Complex Trauma - Attachment trauma which occurs in the first 1000 days of life starting with conception.
  • Accidents, Natural Disaster, Illness, Injury - in these cases you were physically and emotionally injured. When the energy of the injury is released accelerated healing will usually occur.
  • Threats or Harm to Others - may cause grieving, heartbreak, digestive issues, weak knees and depression.
  • Threats or Harm to Self - the horror of these events leave you in fear, feeling small, helpless, physically injured, depressed, untrusting, disoriented.
  • Subconscious Self Harm Patterns - These are not typically viewed as a trauma but I find that they can affect a person's life in a very complex way and lead to a wide assortment of side effects.

 

Attachment Trauma

 A type of relational ambient trauma where there is no specific incident to recall such as an act of violence or sexual abuse. A mother does not expressing love or emotionally attuning to her baby causes attachment trauma which often leads to developmental trauma disorder. Symptoms include ability to self soothe, self destructive behavior patterns,  difficulty with regulating emotions, core shame, self loathing, inability to concentrate, chronic anger, fear, anxiety, aggression. and difficulties with social relations. 45% of babies do not securely attach with their mother.  This is not recognized a recognized by the American Psychiatric Association.

 

Studies have shown that there is a strong correlation between healthy personal relationships and immune function. It is no surprise that so many adults have extensive relationship issues given the effect of attachment trauma on our ability to create and maintain secure loving, satisfying adult relationship.

Subconscious Self Harm Patterns: 

Patterns which make us sick become traumatic when we don't use our innate intuitive abilities and other methods to resolve them. While one can easily make an excuse of personal ignorance, there is actually deeper society ignorance and denial which has been at the seat of this self harm pattern.

I recently have come to realize through my work that -- unresolved food intolerances, allergies, food induced illnesses and addictions become a "chronic" self induced trauma when they continue for extended periods of time --. For many years our natural innate knowledge to navigate these issues have been suppressed by the mores of society, thankfully this is changing. This is not a recognized trauma type.

PTSD: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

A person must witness or be an actual victim of a specific event that threatens to cause death, physical in jury or serious injury. Signs of PTSD include 1) reliving the event (intrusive nightmares, flashbacks) 2) avoidance of events, people, or situations which tirgger flashbacks and 3) numbing and negative changes on feelings and beliefs and 4) hyperarousal - being keyed up and for example having poor sleep.
