Understanding Trauma

Understanding Trauma

Hypnotherapy can help with understanding trauma, unveiling its profound impact on mental health, relationships, and overall well-being.

All trauma is stressful – but not all stress is traumatic

Where it matters is to understand trauma.   Its origin – The Greek word trauma is a WOUND   –  It is a Psychic wound.   

It leaves a scar and an imprint or mark in the nervous system, the psyche, or the body and manifests in multiple ways that may not be helpful years later.

The nature of the wound – if it stays open and not related, it will cause infection and hurt you more.  If not treated and healed, it will reoccur over and over

On the other hand, it sounds scar over.  Becoming hard, rigid, and flexible.

Trauma also stops emotional growth and development

It is not what happened to you – not the war, abuse, or pain.   It is the wound and emotions sustained due to what happened to you – the experience.

And this can be healed.

Healing Trauma Steps

  1. Acknowledge the Wound: The first step in healing psychic wounds is acknowledging their existence. This involves recognizing and accepting that you have experienced trauma and that it has impacted your life.
  2. Seek Support: Healing from trauma often requires support from others. This can come from friends, family members, support groups, or mental health professionals such as therapists or counselors. Surrounding yourself with people who care about you and understand what you’re going through can provide comfort and validation.
  3. Practice Self-Compassion: Be kind and gentle with yourself as you navigate the healing process. Self-compassion involves recognizing your suffering without judgment and responding to it with kindness and care.
  4. Process Emotions: Allow yourself to feel and express the emotions associated with the trauma. This may involve journaling, talking to a trusted friend or therapist, or engaging in creative outlets such as art or music. By processing your emotions in healthy ways, you can begin to release pent-up feelings and gain a sense of emotional relief.
  5. Challenge Negative Beliefs:  these feelings often leave behind negative beliefs about oneself, others, and the world. These beliefs can be deeply ingrained and may contribute to ongoing distress. Challenge these beliefs by examining the evidence for and against them, considering alternative perspectives, and replacing them with more balanced and realistic thoughts.
  6. Practice Self-Care: Take care of your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being through self-care practices. This may include getting enough sleep, eating nourishing foods, engaging in regular exercise, spending time in nature, practicing mindfulness or meditation, and engaging in activities that bring you joy and fulfillment.
  7. Set Boundaries: Establish and maintain healthy boundaries to protect yourself from further harm. This may involve setting limits with others, saying no when necessary, and prioritizing your own needs and well-being. Learning to assert your boundaries can help you feel more empowered and in control of your life.

Can I Hypnotize Myself?

Yes, it’s called self-hypnosis. Hypnotherapy empowers you by providing tools to manage stress in your daily life. You can learn self-hypnosis techniques, enabling you to enter a state of relaxation whenever needed. These techniques can be practiced at home, allowing you to take control of their stress levels independently. My audio recordings can help guide you.

Self-hypnosis is so powerful that I have undergone several dental surgeries without anesthesia or painkillers. You can see me on YouTube having dental surgery with only self-hypnosis.

More Information

I have made audio recordings for self-hypnosis specifically to address certain issues. I recommend the Build Confidence and Stress No More recordings. Download the recording and save it to your device for listening. Find a quiet and comfortable place as you allow hypnosis to happen.
