11. All human beings have trauma.
Trauma is the resulting energetic imprint on a human being when they DO NOT experience feeling SAFE, SEEN OR SOOTHED. Our foundational trauma and resulting belief systems and patterns are hard wired into our brains between the ages of in utero to 7 years old. After that, humans often begin the auto-pilot ways of being that were established previously, over and over and over and over.
All human beings have trauma. The degree and the details vary widely BUT all humans have trauma. Having trauma doesn’t make you weak or less than. Trauma is, in this present timeline, a baseline experience as a human being.
Why is this important?
Understanding that all humans have trauma creates a space to allow for the trauma. Allowing for the trauma doesn’t mean telling yourself that it wasn’t so bad or creating a better feeling story. It just means allowing it to be there.
X happened and I made it mean Y and now I create a reality that feels uncomfortable but FAMILIAR because I have been practicing it for so long.
Everyone does it!
The key is to NOTICE the story you live in. As you notice the story you live in, you can then ask yourself, “Is my trauma impacting my story in ways that do not serve me?” As you ask that question, you create space for your trauma to mean something different, maybe even something that serves you. This is a form a magic.
