Unpacking – You Can’t Heal What You Don’t Acknowledge
The foundation for addiction.
Our fight or flight response is embedded into our DNA from our past ancestors. For some, it can get triggered on - perhaps through epi-genetics, early uprising or simply mystery.
Transferred into the body can leave life-long trauma on a physical, emotional, and metal level.
These feelings are real to the trauma receiver and can cause shame, guilt, confusion, fear.
The Disease of the Lost Self – Looking Elsewhere
When caretakers or painful circumstances expose chaos or trauma to a family, the children abandon from being children. Their growing lives enter survival mode. In survival mode, they become hypervigilent and compulsively scan the environment to detect the next threat to their safety and well-being.
These children quickly learn to shut out what they feel and have learned that they will be punished for expressing their feelings and needs. Thus, they reject introspection as a dangerous luxury.
