There is much said and written about childhood trauma, inner child work and rebirthing. We experience this trauma in two ways, the Soul Self and, the Physical World and I think it can be difficult to reconcile any childhood trauma because when we have the emotional maturity to process the event, that event is too far away to look at objectively. We’ve already created a belief system and a set of survival tools and it is frightening to let them go. In it’s destructive form the wounded child prevents us from expressing our magical child. In it’s positive sense the experiences can create resilience and compassion within us.
I have found, in my own time as a healer and in my own life, that healing wounded child trauma is such a personal experience and no one modality is a cure all. I also understand that sometimes it takes a lifetime to reconcile. I have worked with many teachers and healers over the years, I have plumbed the depths of my own trauma and this is how I explain the process.
Childhood trauma is stored in the base chakra. It comes from family, ancestral and DNA patterns that are repeated and passed on. We do not always take on all the ancestral behaviours however we respond to those that resonate with our personality and our Soul contracts. We cannot destroy the memory or the trauma. They are with us for life because they are embedded in our collective psyche. It is important to recognise when you are traumatising yourself, judging yourself and being generally horrible to yourself, that you are reinforcing this embedded belief. The good news is that while you cannot banish the experience you can detach and reconcile yourself from the emotions that are trapped in the body and the mind. It is simple and complex. When you deeply connect to your soul you really get to know the real you. When you are able to fully accept all the elements of your personality and become your own best friend it makes it easier to recognise when those emotions or patterns bubble up. This type of cycle is called conscious consciousness. In this state you will feel the response, recognise the response, make a conscious decision about your reaction and act accordingly. Sometimes we have a win and sometimes we have a relapse. You will thrive and regain control of your life, your emotions, your creativity and your spark of joy for life. It is achievable and worth the effort you put in.
P.S. please remember this process may take many lifetimes. Compassion, forgiveness and gratitude are the outcomes of this process. You can’t force them they are states of being, you become them.
