Healing Past Trauma

Healing Past Trauma

By Nanice Ellis

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Did you know that every time you talk about an unhealed wound or trauma, you re-activate it in your emotional, spiritual and physical bodies? As you speak, or even think, about an old issue, you experience it as if it is happening right now. Since your subconscious mind does not know the difference between current experience and past memory, for all intents and purposes, the trauma or negative experience is happening now.

When you re-activate old painful memories, your thoughts, words and emotions create a negative karmic energy that you unknowingly project out into your future. This karmic energy manifests in more painful experiences, similar to the original issue. In other words, when issues come up without resolution, a karmic loop or pattern develops.

Each time this karmic pattern manifests in real life situations, you re-experience the original wound and the current hurt simultaneously. When this occurs, it is a powerful opportunity to heal the past wound by healing the current one.

Unfortunately, when an issue is re-activated, instead of using it as a healing opportunity, many of us react by pushing the wounds down with numbing substances like food, drugs, internet, Facebook, TV, and a long list of other distractions.

Unhealed issues get stored in the body, until we release them. The body obliges as a storehouse for emotional wounds but it does take its toll, especially if issues are accumulated for long periods of time. Storing wounds in the body eventually weakens the body and invites illness and disease, as well as causing depression, fatigue, stress and weight gain. The good news is that the body is ready to release issues, the moment you are.

When an unhealed issue is re-activated, don’t just push it down – take the time to finally heal it. This means creating intentional space to feel your emotions and allow the issue to process through to Healing. Once you allow yourself to fully experience these emotions for the first time, without resistance, you will innately know what path to healing is right for you.

Wounds are meant to be healed. We are not meant to spend our lives carrying around past issues and hurts. Unhealed issues weigh us down, keep us asleep and prevent us from consciously creating. It is only our personal issues that stop us from experiencing our greatest potential. Holding onto issues keeps us limited and unable to reach that mountain top.

Because of the shifts going on in the collective consciousness and the higher energy now available on this planet, it has never been easier to release old issues. In fact, issues are now coming to the surface to be resolved. This is why so many of us are experiencing familiar challenges. Wounds want to be healed and issues want to be released, but you have the last say. None of this can happen until you are ready and willing.

You are meant to be free and clear of emotional burdens. You are meant to live a limitless life with an abundance of love and creativity. You are meant to stand on the mountain top with arms stretched wide – willing to receive your grandest dreams. The Universe is listening.

    I always see articles like this that tell you what to do but not how to do it. Not helpful at all

  • sarah

    Are you kidding me? Yeah, we all know that these wounds need to be “dealt with” but what good does it do to publish an article like this and not offer any tools? How does one go about healing these wounds??? You say “Whichever way works best for you” Again – Are you kidding me? Obviously those of us that have these limiting blockages don’t know how to process. Give us some help please!

    This quip is only supposed to get one interested in healing and rising above what they are experiencing. If you would look at her credentials she does give people places to start looking.

    I feel like the author is like a door way. she is opening the readers eyes to the possibility of over coming this pain.

    Plus, in my opinion, if your not willing to do some research and find something that works for YOU, then your missing out.

    EVERYTHING does NOT fall into your lap (:

    Amber and Sarah are right. We could have been given a web site to go to for further research.

  • Chelle

    Cam you elaborate more on what it means to feel those emotions? What other things can I do? Because I am certainly going through that karmic cycle in my life right now and I desire and am seeking healing so badly.
