Updated 4 years old: Balanced Life (Mind/Body) versus the Extremes Shifts of Childhood Trauma!!!


.
.
Life is lived with extreme shifts of mood, fear, anxiety and terror when childhood trauma is active and thriving.
.
We descend into escape, avoidance, a rapid quickening of thoughts, with a accelerated loss of cognitive and fine motor skills.
.
During these trigger explosions, trauma at this moment is at it’s strongest and most vulnerable. Learn to stay present with focus, breathing in this moment, and trauma will lose power.
.
A balanced mind/body is a steady mind, a mind that uses both hemispheres of the brain, cognitive and creative sides.
.
A balanced mind has resilience, a built up space and time interval in which to decide whether to react to our fears or refocus and let them fade.
.
A balanced mind does not explode with cortisol and adrenaline at delusions of past fear.
.
A balanced mind has time and resilience to decide not to grab the storyline of trauma, but observe, feel the body sensation by itself.
.
The steady mind knows the inner workings of the body, has sat and become familiar without the ego, the cognitive judgment and bias of one, always not good enough.
.
Mindfulness heals trauma simply by not reacting to it, then accepting it and finally surrendering to all the fear and crap.
.
Trauma, C-PTSD can not play defense, so when a trigger explodes, it is vulnerable and easy to integrate.
.
Being able to not react, taking a step back with our mindfulness practice, absorbs the power of PTSD, emptying the amygdala a little each time.
.
When your triggers do not explode anymore, trauma has lost it power, the amygdala is finally empty of past trauma.
.
Life opens up again and opportunity explodes for us.

  1. Who the heck told you these nonsense. ..I must of been on the wrong Medical school ….lmao…

  2. please expand so we can discuss.

    The amygdala you might think does not empty? So what happens?

    Healing is not staying present, observing during triggers?

    Well medical books like the DSM are decades behind on trauma, that is why CBT has failed and a plethora of eastern philosophy has emerged.

    Find mindfulness at your medical school, it is not an intellectual property, learned by taking a class but by practice.

    How many therapists has sat five years an hour a day to really know how to use mindfulness. medical schools have no idea what cures best, quickest and what does not work. What works best, fastest is a mystery.

    We are at an epidemic rate and war takes twenty years after completion to reach peak incidence, so we are headed for trauma Armageddon and the professional society of therapists does nothing.

    We have Mash surgical units, perfected from the civil war through Vietnam to now for physical injuries but what have we developed in all these wars for trauma, damn little way to late.

  3. Oh trauma can not play defense, maybe your medical school needs to listen to some of us who have been there, done that and come back.

    I think this may start a good conversation on some of traumas idiosyncrasies.

    Please feel,comfortable to expound and discuss.

  4. They certainly do not teach this stuff in medical school. Recovery from PTSD is not generally considered possible. As someone who is in the process of recovery, I can say that these statements are true for me. Once science moves further toward an understanding of PTSD and the recovery from it, the medical books may include some of this.

  6. The amount of suffering if taken as a whole, the world is a traumatizing giant. The large body, the establishment , not individual therapists, do not seem to have any urgency. Look at how we treat injured, that is physical injuries, lost limbs, eyesight etc.

    We would be up in arms if these things were unattended, but a sinister disorder has taken a life a day this year to suicide and very little is planned.

    One study was going to drop the D in PTSD and thought that would help heal the many.

    How can we be so pathetic with all the wars we have fought, the Mash units are state of the art with real metrics to guide doctors and patients, where are the results of all the experience of therapists, counseling PTSd sufferers?

    There are nine, no direction for what works, no specialized training for vets. No mental mash units, just a suicide a day.

    Is that acceptable? Well as the military and psychology establishment debate theory soldiers die.

    Where is the urgency?

    Why does it take so long to get proper diagnosis and metrics from DSM, well, it is just so insurance has categories to bill us, not healing, money takes a front seat in this battle.

    May I ask where the history of mindfulness practice exists in the medical schools?
