My 6th Healing Course – Trauma and Regression
This weekend was by far the most emotionally draining weekend to date. I am not exactly sure why. Saturday seemed to be a reasonably relaxed day, although we did a lot of new things, but Sunday found me feeling weepy for no apparent reason – initially. Later I realized that many things had “shifted” in my mind on Saturday, leaving me feeling almost like a blank, undefined slate. I felt embarrassed on Sunday to be seen in such a weepy state. I considered running out and leaving more than once. A friend had to remind me that it was a safe place to be; that feeling like that was okay. Luckily I held myself together and got some good value out of the rest of the day.
Saturday started off with some theory on trauma. We learnt that trauma was something that interfered with your direction – a distraction from your original intention. For example: if you are walking to the shops and you are hit by a car, that would be classified as a trauma. You were on your way to the shops but through an unforeseen event did not arrive at your destination. I think you get the picture.
My teacher has wisdom that astounds me, especially as I am very aware of how she has to simplify what she knows and explain in a simple way without complicating the issue beyond what we are capable of understanding and absorbing in a weekend. Sometimes our minds want to complicate things, as letting knowledge unfold and present itself in its own time is not how we are taught to acquire knowledge.
We live in a world of duality and polarity. There is yin and yang, North and South, positive and negative poles on the earth and a magnet; not to mention the old struggle between good and evil. These elements give us a reason to live and without the continuous duality there would be no religion, no sport and no economy. The more we fight these things the stronger the opposition or evil becomes. Many tales are told of “missions” that give people a purpose in life. “Fighting” something distracts from our true purpose and gives us a reason to judge – the motive being revenge or wanting applause, for example. It keeps us anchored in suffering and self pity. It makes us feel “important”. It keeps us holding onto something. This prevents us from letting go so that our hands are free to reach upward and climb higher.
To become truly free is to transcend beyond this duality to pure spirit and light. The Christ consciousness. This can only be achieved through embracing the Christ principle of non-judgement. This means co-existing with good and evil, but not giving either power by judging. Sadly this is not what most Christians do and they miss the point. Their focus has become fighting the devil and judging good and evil, instead of becoming non-judgemental. He prayed on the cross that there would be forgiveness and non-judgement of the people that crucified him.
Self-importance is spun around our ego, and through letting go of this we do not have anything to protect or loose; this allows us to get free of self-pity, freeing us up to dedicate our energy to Spirit and enlightenment. Compassion is the only healing force and exists only when we are not emotionally involved and have no interest in the outcome. Only through compassion can we be pure channels and overcome our suffering and that of others.
What a mouthful! Not easy to grasp and definitely not easy to live. However, it once again leaves me feeling ever grateful to be free of the shackles of religion and the power it gives to evil, elevating it to an important position, giving it energy and keeping people judging – exactly what Christ did not want.
Trauma is often perceived as being “from the devil”; An obsessive preoccupation that we experience with something that happens to a person. Some religions see it as karma in action. Whatever our background, we need to learn to not give these acts power or significance.
An interesting thing about trauma is that different religions and cultures experience trauma differently. Life has trapped us through expectations imposed on us by others, society, culture , religion and the economy and times we live in. These expectations tell us what we should have, want, be, do, how we should behave and react and many other things that are impossible to gratify. The result is that most of us feel inadequate, insecure, unfulfilled or unable to function. This causes heaviness in us, which some people will “get out of” by suicide, and others of us will manifest a way out of with “traumas”. A trauma will take you out of the situation of “heaviness” which the spirit finds intolerable; to get you out of harm`s way and not prolong the intolerable condition/situation. This, generally, allows us to go through a whole range of emotions, to eventually get to a better place, so that the spiritual body can get back to normal psychological functioning.
By saying this, I am implying that the “darker and denser” our energies are, the more likely we are to attract disaster.
However, whatever the reason, when a trauma has occurred, it is necessary to diffuse it.
Traumas have two parts to them. Firstly it is the actual incident. An example would be a child falling off his bike and cutting his head open. The trauma is then that the head is bleeding and must be attended to. The second part of the trauma is everything that is done and said after the trauma has happened. An example would be that Mom screams, Sister says in a dramatic way “Oh, my goodness – look at all that blood! I hope he does not need a blood transfusion!”, Father says: “Stop crying! Boys don`t cry!” and Aunty says: “I hope he is not concussed or that he won`t end up with brain damage!”. Then, perhaps, he is rushed to the nearest hospital with Mom screaming at Dad who has just jumped a red traffic light. Once at the hospital he goes through more trauma as he gets stitched up and has a bad reaction to some medication he is given on top of a tetanus injection etc etc etc. The possibilities for further trauma are endless.
A further word of advice: refrain from blaming something/someone else for the trauma. For example: if a child ran into a door, refrain from saying: “Naughty door! Look what you have done.” The reason for this is so that the child does not grow up looking for something/someone to blame for everything that goes wrong. The child must learn to take responsibility if he was the cause of his or someone else`s trauma.
When a person loses consciousness, it is often because the aura becomes detached from the body, leaving the body unprotected for entities to move in and for further damage to occur. The same happens during an operation, which may or may not be necessary, but is nevertheless a butchering of the body and a trauma. Even though unconscious or under anaesthetic, the spirit is fully aware of everything being done and said. His conscious mind may not recall the words or incidents afterwards, but they are lodged in the etheric body/aura and manifest in the physical body, leaving scarring, pain or emotional scarring. Psychological damage is done.
This means that as little attention as possible must be given to a trauma; it must be dealt with as swiftly and quietly as possible. Immediately lavender oil can be put onto a wound and a little on the crown of the head. This will seal the aura and prevent the body from further harm. Although lavender is not used for pain relief, sealing the aura will take away some of the pain. In the event of a burn, lavender oil will also seal the skin from oxygen, preventing oxidization and further damage. We learnt that to put the burnt area into cold water will cause further damage, due to the oxygen in the water. I do realize that this is not what we are generally taught. Keep the area of the trauma warm and closed.
Although this blog is not about entities, please be aware that anything that causes “loss of consciousness”, even if you are not unconscious – like drinking or drugging – allows entities to enter. The person may even act according to the will of the entity. The same happens when we experience strong emotions. Strong emotions release a lot of energy and entities attach to one to feed off this energy. Therefore, the calmer you can remain, the less susceptible you are to these entities. This is a very good reason not to watch scary or gruesome movies or get worked up to a frenzy in night clubs etc, as this is exactly the environment that entities are looking for. If you remain calm at all times, these entities may leave. They become bored and look for someone else`s addictions and energy to feed off.
The rest of the weekend was spent learning techniques to diffuse traumas, as well as fixations that could result in traumas. Corrections were done by assuming the polarity position and changing attitudes that block one from seeing the truth, buying into false truths and dramas. We did the same to change mindsets by “wasting” things that we thought were important but aren`t. We looked at interests that we have that keep others interested in us – interests that we hang on to for that very reason, preventing us from growing and letting go. Disease is exactly one such “interest”.
Regression was fascinating, but not that simple to facilitate. Sometimes a trauma from a past life gets stuck in our cellular memories as there was some aspect of it that we did not understand. This is usually due to missing pieces of information, not available or obvious at that time. Regression allows one to go back; to be able to look at the situation from other perspectives not available to you at the time that it happened. This sorts out many things in this lifetime like unexplained pain, recurring problems and patterns of behaviour, giving insight and understanding. Sometimes the body will not regress, though, as in the case of myself. I know it was not due to a belief system, as I have known about re-incarnation since I started doing the Numerology, so perhaps the timing was not right or I need to have some other awareness before going there. I did, however, get to deal with an emotion that I have battled with all my life, which is probably a result of past lives. It was quite amazing to realize that this particular emotion and the situations that it attracts, was “stuck” in my cellular memory, thus the reason for it being such a “biggie” in my life.
Until next time – get a bottle of lavender oil for the kitchen, the car and your handbag/wallet. Remember – deal with a trauma quickly with as little emotion and verbal input as possible.
