The trauma regression I did yesterday was very insightful. It illustrated the connection between the emotional body and gut health. We were exploring a client's sexual trauma, which had seemed to plague him his whole life. He harboured deep shame and guilt around sex, and also, always seemed to be attracted to woman with sexual trauma in their history as well.
Together, we were able to pinpoint the root cause of this man's blocks around intimacy, which all stemmed from witnessing his father force himself upon his mother sexually when he was just six. He was in the other room, and heard her shout "no!" several times. He had buried the scene deep within his subconscious mind. This is when regression can come in so very handy as a tool with which to release trauma.
We did some somatic work and released the traumatic energetic field, and then the physical body. Physically, it was lodged in the stomach. The solar plexus often gets burdened with these types of obstructions and it can result in a myriad of gut problems. In his case, he was suffering from chronic IBS and Crohn's Disease. His gut issues were all related to the ancestral programming of repressed trauma around sex. He had inherited the condition from his mother. He had subconsciously felt that sex was "bad" and he felt more comfortable in a sexless partnership.
Not only had it cause his "chronic" and "incurable" gut problems, it also had contributed to both my client and his mother battling Chronic Fatigue Syndrome over their entire lives. We discovered that this served as a protection from true intimacy as a sort of self-manifested defense mechanism. The message they believed and projected was: "I am too tired and ill to have a proper relationship."
The trick was to stay with the trapped energy. After understanding and accepting how this wound had been at the root of a lifetime of baffling health conditions, we had to release the energy from the body. This got so intense at one point that my client felt he couldn't breathe. His chest tightened as the wound rose from his stomach to his heart. Here he used his naval much like a pump to continue to breathe it through his body and release bit by bit on the exhale. The energetic wound always shifts until finally it is released.
It is imperative to stay with the block wherever it goes in the body, however long it takes, until it is fully released by the cleansing agent of breathe. Exhaling is the release, and oxygen is universal energy. His face flushed and felt as if it was burning before he released the blocked energy for good.
My client said at one point his whole body was ice cold and he could feel heat coming up from your legs. He said he intuitively knew it was energy shifting around his body. When you lose something that is an energetic part of you, it has to be rebalanced. The body must adjust to the change.
I suggested my client write letters to both his mother and his father and burn them on the full moon as a sort of cleansing experience for the emotional body. My client felt relieved, relaxed and balanced after the session. This is a great example of the profound healing capabilities of regression. It must have a therapeutic purpose, and can be used to "time travel" to past life experience (in this life or beyond) as a means of trauma release and inner child healing.
If you too suspect blocks in your quantum field due to issues you might have "inherited" from your ancestral lineage, contact Bespoke Counselling for support in releasing the obstructions. It is never too late or too deep to explore, and the highest self will never reveal anything you are not ready to know and/or not able to cope with. The power of trauma release is that it frees your subconscious from having command over your actions "without you knowing it." You can have full command over the direction and flow of your life when you deal with what's lurking in your shadow.
We all wonder from time to time, "why are we here?" and I'd like to say I help clients ponder the big Q on a regular basis. Sure, we are all different and one person may give a different answer than another, but, I've noticed a common theme over the years. And it's to do with the "stuff" we unknowingly inherit from our family.
I am not talking about the funny-shaped nose or dangly earlobes, no, I am talking about the unprocessed feelings of your mother / father unit, and that of theirs, and that of their parents, etc. etc. etc. It's all of the unhealed wounds that plaque us on a daily basis and allow the subconscious mind to have command from the depths of the shadows. We don't know what we don't know. And until we shed the light of consciousness of these "genetic" issues, they will rule. They will decipher who we choose as partners (i.e. who can we best play out the roles we didn't resolve in the original family unit). They will have an effect on how you react to your boss, they will be the unconscious reason you explode sometimes "out of the blue." What's hysterical is historical.
In order to heal, process repressed emotion and integrate our shadow aspects of self, we have to at one point, when we are good and ready, come up against the beast of all psychological processes: healing the ancestral lineage. The bad news? It can be deeply disturbing and take a significant amount of work. The good news: when you heal these old patterns, you are not only helping yourself, but the entire ancestral line. This is because everything is connected vibrationally, and to change self is to transform all.
The incentive is high but the defense mechanisms against healing can be the most baffling. I've come up with some strategies to get the heart of the familial trauma in order to be able to process, go through the feelings, release the blocked energy, and create space for unconditional love to come in and heal. Integration is healing, and the ancestral wound is especially receptive to this bringing forth into awareness.
If you want to know really why you are here, ask yourself, have you looked into your family tree? What are the issues that you see pass from generation to generation? Start to bring your own awareness to these patterns and take your first step towards stopping the programming once and for all. The change isn't out there, the change is within YOU. You ARE the change. Be the change. Contact Bespoke Counselling for more information on transcending negative ancestral patterns.
