The Impact of Trauma On Your Mind

The triggering event itself does not cause traumatic symptoms (what you experience and what we see on the outside).  On the contrary, traumatic symptoms are a result of the frozen residue of energy that has not been resolved and discharged in the nervous system as documented by Peter Levine.

I Don’t Have Any Trauma!

The mind and body consider trauma as any experience that is overwhelming to a person’s ability to cope with that experience when it is happening.  Further, trauma can appear when you experience an event where you feel helpless and cannot defend yourself by fighting, fleeing, or freezing; moreover, trauma can also appear when you experience an event and are able to fight, flee, or freeze. 

What you experience in your body when you are unable to defend yourself is referred to as “survival energy” – energy that became stuck at that moment in the nervous system.  If that “survival energy” is not released from your nervous system, it will undoubtedly, at some point, manifest in you as emotional or behavioral issues such as depression, anger, addictions, anxiety, or other psychosomatic and physical illnesses.

The answer is The Mind Doctor®.  He utilizes various hypnotherapy and somatic techniques that will allow you to access your nervous system (central and peripheral nervous system) where energy is stored and can be released, resetting your nervous system so you can begin to function how you were originally designed for optimal functioning and relationships!
