When a person experiences a trauma (perhaps early in life or under a life threatening experience) and that trauma experience is not processed at the core level, an out-of-control trigger reactions to life situations and people will occur. These trigger reactions are DISPLACED REACTIONS IN LIFE in an attempt to resolve the original trauma.
A traumatic experience gets locked in under these four criteria:
1. It is UNEXPECTED
2. It is DRAMATIC
3. It is ISOLATING
4. You have NO STRATEGY AVAILABLE to deal with it.
Fears and anxieties can be overwhelming and disrupt your life. Many of us are programmed with negative beliefs, from a very young age, such as "not good enough", "not pretty enough", "not smart enough". .
Have you noticed how negative experiences have a more profound affect on you than all the positive ones you have experienced? As children, we only have to hear, sense or experience criticisms a few times for it to impact heavily on us. The negative programming can take hold in the subconscious mind at an early age and tends to stay there to be experienced over and over again.
A PTSD reaction can be triggered by a memory, a sound, etc. even when there is no immediate life-and death threat. PTSD is the mind/body’s way of expressing the original unprocessed trauma.
These hurtful experiences and anxieties cause a shift in the Amygdala, a small organ deep in the subconscious mind. This shift in the organ determines how we process particular situations.
The subconscious is a very powerful part of us. It is responsible for over 90% of all human thought and function. It's role is to protect us and it actually does that very well. We, however, often manifest anxiety based on distorted information tucked in the subconscious.
Reactions can be severe. If the reaction is strong enough you will experience a full blown panic attack. Some common experiences are:
Anxiety and fear connected to speaking in front of a group of people, for example, can cause the same kind of fight-or-flight response as that of being chased by a lion.
A milder form of anxiety would be a disruption in your emotional body where it can be felt as excessive worry and tension, restlessness, irritability, muscle tension, nausea, fear, self-criticism, etc.
Once the negative beliefs that cause these reactions are established, they are very difficult to change.
I have found that Hypnotherapy, NLP, EFT and other tools of change can be very effective to make the changes wanted.
The deep relaxation of hypnosis allows the door between the conscious mind and the subconscious mind to open enough for new positive information to enter and change the old programming.
Hypnosis is simply about making a change in the subconscious mind to realign with your conscious goal.
Once a positive suggestion is accepted by the subconscious mind, it has the power to change your self-concept and behaviors. This can be life transformative.
