Misunderstanding The Term “Trauma”
In this chapter, I like to give you a simple example based on a common trauma that most people have to deal with. You probably remember the “attachment issue” I promised? Yes, that’s what I want to elaborate on. Unfortunately, before we can go into that, we need to define the word “trauma.” Most people think of an extremely challenging situation like physical abuse or specific experiences you might only have in a war-like scenario.
The truth is, it can be quite simple to create a traumatic imprint. It can be as simple as getting a harsh insult in a vulnerable situation, a judgment by a loved one, a shameful sexual incident, or any event that created strong negative emotions that looks rather harmless at first glance. Especially during our childhood, the circumstances that lead to a trauma program can seem very simple on the surface, but they are perceived differently on the insight.
Let’s talk about a common trauma, that most people think hurts the most—losing a significant other.
Losing a person that is very dear to us can be extremely painful. We can experience it with partners, friends, family members, and even animals. The reason why we feel that sting in our heart chakra is a controversial topic because partially the pain derives from the fact that we tend to stop the flow of our own love. Essentially, we lost the person to project our energy on. The healthy cycle of giving and taking Prana or Chi is interrupted. We literally suffer from our own love energy trapped in our hearts. That should not be the topic at this point, but it brings us back to a perspective of self-responsibility, which is a critical point in the philosophy of Creative Homeopathy.
We are responsible for our emotions!
So we lost a person that was very close to us, and it hurts—fair enough. It could be the partner that ran away with another lover, the mother that got killed in a car accident, or the beloved grandfather that died of cancer. Our inability to deal with the situation correctly from the point of spiritual maturity creates pain. We actually inflict it on ourselves. Of course, no one likes to hear that at this point, and that is okay. It makes us human in the first place but the harsh truth is that we are responsible for our emotions.
