Let me paraphrase Peyton Quinn, adrenal memories create a persistent and automatic responses. This occurs at the non-self aware level of consciousness. This is significant, because our response to stress can get pre-consciously programmed into our personal self-images and our personal world view.
An example is riding with another person, driving distracted, requiring us to slam on the invisible brake at a dangerous intersection. No thought involved. Let us explore the negative thoughts and comments we grasp when triggered.
Our feelings of positive personal self worth must be unconditional. Practicing the breathing track everyday and with every thought can accomplish this. Remember, on the right side of the brain words, dialogue, judgment, failure, guilt, or shame do not exist. The right side concerns itself only with the present moment.
It does not even know there is a past or future.
