We all experience traumas in our lives, some big and some so very small that they are only important to ourselves. Over time these traumas have a tendency to come back and create new problems for us though. This happens because our subconscious mind is trying to protect us from future harm.
Lets say you were bitten by a dog when you were a small child, to protect you from further harm, your subconscious mind brings back image of you being bitten every time you see a dog. You respond with fear and possibly anger in response to this warning from deep inside.
As a survival mechanism it works very well. You avoid all dogs and never get bitten. You also will never have a pet canine and will likely get rid of people in your life that do, even if you never make connection yourself, your subconscious mind will associate early trauma as a child with dog owner you know now.
The problem comes in to play when natural protective mechanism continues after it stops being useful to you.
It can be any trauma of course, and even seemingly small things can create large problems. Say you always got picked last to be on playground sports teams when young. Does your subconscious mind tell you to “buck-up” and not worry about what children thought of your athletic ability way back then, or does it tell you not to put yourself forward in social situations? That if others have control of your position, they will always pick you last?
This subject could be looked at as one of most important problems humans have ever faced. Every person carries around with them a load of traumatic episodes and their own personal responses to them. Each set of problems has to be dealt with on a personal basis, if they are to be fixed. Cookie-cutter responses just won’t work.
Some forms of psychic intervention can be of help, Entrainment Therapy, Subconscious field adjustments and such things as simple calming mental patterns or a temporary diminution of fear can all be of help.
Ultimately though, real progress must come from within, outside intervention can help, but only so much. I am not telling you to not seek help by any means. (As it is a part of my personal practice, one would hope I could endorse it!) It is however still true that real work begins and ends within.
The technique I am introducing here is very powerful, but not a miracle cure or quick fix, so be prepared to do a bit of work if you would like to see results in a fairly rapid fashion.
Begin by finding a calm and quiet spot, away from other people and distractions, where you can feel safe and comfortable.
*Take a few deep breaths and let your mind calm down. Relax and let go of any concerns you may have. If things keep popping into your mind, just acknowledge them and set them aside.
*Focus on a spot deep inside your own head, towards back a bit. Take a few moments to feel this space. Many people report that most solid feeling of connection to their subconscious mind seems to come from this area of brain. Whether this is fact or not is moot. The act of focusing here will cause proper connection to take place, which is enough for our current purposes.
*To communicate clearly with your subconscious mind is simple in some ways, hard in others, and always different than you think it will be first time you notice it. Your subconscious mind “speaks” in concepts. If you pay attention you will notice it. Look for meaning without words or pictures.
