Trauma

Transformation Life Architects - Thursday, May 16, 2019
When most people think of trauma they think physical trauma such as being beaten up, accidents or breaking limbs.
There is a much bigger trauma in society and that is mental trauma. This trauma is usually expressed as long term stress, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress(PTSD).

So how do we as individuals get this long term stress, anxiety, depression and PTSD?

When we have a traumatic event in our lives we go straight into the primitive part of our brains where we are given three ways to handle the event; flight, fight or freeze. We can run away, fight or if the event is overwhelming, freeze.
To get into this state blood is taken from the brain and put into the muscles, you don’t want to be thinking about the event before reacting Blood is taken from your gut and put into your muscles, digestion is not necessary when you need your muscles most. Your body is also flooded with hormones such as cortisol so that your muscles are like springs, ready to spring into action.

When this happens your stress and anxiety levels shoot up. Once the event is over your body and brain turns the event into a memory.

For reasons we are not entirely sure about our brain and body does not turn the event or events into a memory. We now live these events consciously or unconsciously all the time. It’s like groundhog day. People in this state have long term stress, anxiety, depression and PTSD. They often have foggy thinking, stiff muscles around the neck and shoulders, digestive problems and have difficulty thinking about the future.

if you are suffering from these symptoms and have long term stress, anxiety, depression or PTSD consider hypnosis to help you overcome them. It’s quick and effective. Nobody needs to suffer the anguish of mental trauma so if you are suffering seek help.
