From Past Trauma to Peace in the Present

Healing From The Inside Out

Healing Trauma

Unlocking the Past and Finding Peace in the Present

We all have something we would like to let go of but can't. Traumas come in all shapes and sizes and you cannot get through life without some unpleasant scrapes at the very least. But whether small unfortunate event, or catastrophic trauma, our minds tend to hold onto those memories and past impressions and we often carry them with us for years - decades - our whole lives. In the case of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, the symptoms of unhealed trauma get progressively worse over time (agitation, impatience, hyper-arousal, fearfulness, anxiety, bouts of anger, impulsive behavior, poor judgement, tension, poor concentration...)

Unreleased trauma takes a huge toll on our peace of mind, our relationships, our productivity and success, and our physical health.

Trauma is the mind stuck in the past... forever replaying a past event and feeling the stress and emotional reaction over and over, as if it were still happening to us.

If we could live fully in the present moment, (without the interference of memories and past impressions), even for a small portion of our waking day, the peace and well-being we'd experience would be profound and life-changing.

I recently saw a New York times article about advanced technologies in neuroscience that aim to eventually manipulate the brain with computers, to enhance, alter or eliminate particular thoughts, feelings or memories. They claim that they will be able to selectively isolate and remove a trauma memory and heal PTSD someday with this. No doubt they will, but this can be done right now, with a much more sophisticated computer that you already own: your brain.

My favorite technique to use, particularly for trauma, is EFT - otherwise known as "Tapping." The speed and ease of dissolving traumatic memories is in many cases, astonishing. And there are many studies to prove it (and more all the time). It can be used on yourself, alone, or with the aid and guidance of a therapist or coach. (Tapping is a way of engaging the subtle energy system, same as in acupuncture, in order to extinguish traumatic mental imagery and emotional arousal related to stressful thoughts and memories).

So while we wait for scientists at M.I.T. to develop computers to manipulate your brain like in the movie "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," we will go on quietly resolving trauma and PTSD with our elegant tapping technology - no batteries necessary.

I strongly believe that everyone should know how to use this technique, and it should be taught to our kids, at home and in our schools. The world would be a far healthier place and mental illness would rapidly decline if our kids grew up feeling empowered to help themselves in this way.

Don't Give Up!

Every life challenge is an opportunity to awaken. There is no situation that is hopeless. Something positive, healing and transformative is possible in all circumstances, even when we can't recognize it at the time. Sometimes we forge ourselves out of the fire of suffering and loss, and it isn't until the end that we realize what a beautiful work of art has emerged within. The glory of waking up can't be experienced if you don't first accept that you are asleep.

May we all find peace. May we all know joy. May we all be liberated from fear, and released from illusions. May we all return to the Truth of our inner Light.
