Trauma Healing

 

 

Sometimes trauma healing is necessary for an individual to move to the next level in themselves. If there is an area of seperation or forgetting that is very intense it can call for specific healing of the phenomena; what this means is that the aspect of the self having the experience is calling to be seen, heard, felt and honored. The more intense the physical expression of the separation is or the drama of the scenarios in one's life are, the more identification there is to be explored.

 

Healing is in essence an act of grace which I have found to naturally occur the more grounded we are in stillness and willing to surrender, accept and allow the nature of the experience. Often the unconscious aspects of what is occurring for us are waiting to be included through the somatic experience. Sometimes in order to fully open to the experience, it can be helpful to held by another person who can hold a state of inclusion and surrender alongside with you.

 

You can say that I use  advanced energy and awareness techniques from a foundation of stillness to facilitating natural healing, exploring the nature of separation and union within specific scenarios and experiences that clients want to work with.

 

We may work with past trauma, relational conflicts, identification with emotions, negative patterns of behavior or other limiting belief systems.

 

Often I  refer to the experiences that feels separate and triggering us as trauma, as it will have arisen out of an experience that was essentially too painful for us to integrate on all levels perhaps even causing us to leave our body creating a blank area of awareness in the body, or perhaps feeling like something in missing. In the shamanic tradition we call this soul loss, which is an area that feels like a hole in our energy body, that is not being filled by being. The cause or origin of soul loss and experience of trauma and separation is essentially the same, no matter how differently it may be appearing within each person and scenario; and that is a level of forgetting of oneself as true nature.

 

The experience of separation may not necessarily be traumatic by conventional definition, nor will it necessarily be a biographical memory or even a personal experience. There are many layers I work with that covers all aspects of personal history, ancestral and collective conditioning and other imprints that separate us from consciousness and realising true nature.

 

Often we look at yourself and life through the filters of our felt sense of limitation, causing us to resist what is happening in our lives.  Often to manage or disassociate from pain we put the problem outside of us disconnecting from our bodies and emotional experience, resulting in feelings of powerlessness.

 

Our sense of self as wholeness is distorted and conflicted from the beginning of our lives through;

  • dysfunctional and traumatic experiences during developmental stages of our growth

  • subconscious belief systems we are born into

  • conditioned ideas we learn here

Basic Approach to Trauma Healing

My approach to trauma healing is to feel for the unconscious core issue & nature of the experience of separation by exploring the sensations that arise in the body when we feel into what  is triggering us.

 

The loudest sensations that arise in the body provide a gateway for us to explore the nature of separation and track its creation to the point of origin, using stillness as a foundation to drive any changing and reveal the true nature of what is occurring.  

 

This way of working can often address what we may refer as core issues, which potentially will underlie a whole web of unconscious issues in your life. I have discovered that healing arises naturally when there is a level of self realisation within what is occurring, which is why I am primarily working to catalyse a level of remembering in consciousness of our true nature; whether we call that infinity, the unchanging, emptiness or stillness.

 

Core issues show up regularly though and alway can be traced back to a basic experience of separation between infinity and awareness. Many people are used to experiencing different flavours of inferiority, shame and guilt, resentment, loneliness, rejection and abandonment. Fear arises when we are in resistance to being in the body and feeling the core issue. .

 

At the root of all of these core issues is a lack of acceptance and a deep feeling of being disconnected. This disconnection can be from ourselves, from others, from our spiritual nature, or from any combination of these, and is rooted in experiencing separation from origin.

 

When we do heal an unconscious core issue, a web of conscious issues that trigger us day to day can dissolve. This is because we have accessed and healed the rooted causation, the core issue; ultimately a level of forgetting.

 

Generally I have found not many people are working with identity in relationship to core wounds, which in my experience provides a platform for total transformation of self (and thus the capacity for suffering).

 

This approach to healing issue lends to the expression 'the solution does not lie at the layer of the problem, and even deeper than that, the problem is simply a gap in consciousness due to a level of forgetting and identification with what is occurring, as opposed to flow state.

 

 

It is fixed identity that causes breakdowns, blockages and lack of creativity in relationship. Often partners identify themselves with one pole, at the exclusion of being transformed into something new, this creates cording and homeostasis in the relational experience that can only be changed, by one of the two being willing to transform their identity, that can catalyse the evolutionary change in the relationship and take it to the next level. Usually this expresses as greater capacity for beauty, love and play in the relational richness.

 

If we are unable to become both masculine and feminine, if we have fixed experience of ourselves as that, if we are not aware of the ever changing expression of infinity relevant to the moment, our capacity to consciously create relationship is limited. Suffering appears at the level of identity and essentially highlights basic separation on a subtle level, and can be addressed there without needing to go through dramatic & cathartic healing processes.
