Let's take a look at some of the more deeply ingrained layers of subconscious trauma.
Generational trauma is the trauma experienced from caregivers and the family line which is then passed on through offspring. This is when we often see the cycles of abuse being repeated in families.
Catastrophic events such as war, enslavement, concentration camp victims, as well as interpersonal issues such as, addiction, emotional, physical, and sexual abuse.Why does this happen? For one, we store trauma in the body and the brain allowing for genetic transfer. Second, we project our experiences onto the world and our children in hopes of repairing unconscious wounds resulting in repeating cycles. When we heal ourselves we end the line of generational trauma. Your family may not have had the tools or level of consciousness to stop the cycle but you can! If you are awake enough to be seeking this information and have a desire to do the inner work you can heal the line of trauma in your family and stop it from continuing further.
Past life trauma- trauma that has imprinted onto the soul from past lives. Controversial but necessary information for you. If you are an energetic being that has reincarnated onto this earth then you store memories from these past lives deep in your unconscious. Past life trauma often shows up as unexplainable phobias, disruptive behaviors, difficulty with relationships and certain family members. Considering that I just wrote an entire novel based on past life trauma it would be remiss to not mention it here. Though I know it will be seen as controversial to many. Past life trauma has been up for debate in the scientific world for some time but in the spiritual community it has long been dealt with and understood. Renowned psychiatrist Dr. Brian Weiss wrote about it after an experience with a psychiatric patient who was not improving from her symptoms after some time. Through regression hypnosis that was intended to take the patient back to explore childhood trauma it was discovered that she went way far back to another lifetime. Accurately describing events and details that would be otherwise unknown to her. In exploring and understanding her past life trauma her phobias and traumatic symptoms were alleviated completely. We store so many memories in our unconscious mind- including those from our previous energetic lives. In using meditation and hypnosis you can access and uncover these memories. This is next level healing! You will need to be more connected and in tune with your authentic voice (the highest self) to unpack these experiences.
Complex trauma: Childhood trauma (a threat to physical or emotional well being) often results in symptoms such as: interpersonal differences, difficult relationships, emotional dysregulation, lack of trust and sense of self, avoidance, and symptoms of re-experiencing trauma when triggered.
These symptoms fall under a diagnosis of C-PTSD. they are similar to but more pervasive than PTSD which often results in acute trauma from a single event. both are awful and require work toward rewiring the brain to fully heal.
PTSD symptoms such as: hypervigilance, nightmares, flashbacks, hyperarousal, and paranoia are present in both.
When we experience complex trauma our sense of trust in the world and ourselves is heavily impacted. We feel clouded in confusion, filled with doubt, and fear. In this state it is very difficult to be near your authentic self. You may have glimpses but they seem impossible or meant for others. However, it is possible to heal from trauma. Looking at your wounds and triggers will help you find the areas that need healing from childhood traumas. Once you have reached a level of healing you can begin to reconnect with the authentic self. Healing complex trauma symptoms will help you see more clearly and become more in tune with your inner voice. When you follow these clues from your soul you can walk toward your authentic self more confidently.
