Trauma/Adversity are the causes of Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD or CPTSD)!
These traumatic experiences can be a one off like being in a car accident or a series of adversities/trauma, e.g. in a war zone or severe domestic violence situation.
Expert research worldwide has shown that adversities/traumas are stored in the Limbic System; which is the emotional seat of the brain. And the most unusual thing about the Limbic system is that it does not have a language!
That’s right it cannot hear/comprehend or speak words.
Your ‘Language’ Brain Explained…
The language parts of the brain are called Wernicke’s and Broca’s.
The Wernicke’s section’s main function is to understand language, whereas the Broca’s area is involved mainly in producing speech.
So you may ask ‘So what does this have to do with overcoming PTSD?’
Language does not have any bearing on the Limbic System, so it does not matter how long you talk about your problems or what you talk about in your understanding of your post-traumatic stress.
Not only is talk ‘cheap’ it can also be very ineffective…
- Talking allows you to come to terms as to WHY you have post-traumatic stress.
- But this does not change the pictures you have stored in the Limbic System.
- So you could talk until the cows come home but those stubborn pictures are still all there; holding your adversities.
Trauma can cause time to stand still for years!
Something you need to know about the Limbic system is that it does not have a clock in there giving the passage of time since the traumatic events.
You may have been 6 years old when the event happened and you are now a 76-year-old, but the Limbic System thinks it happened only moments ago!
And because it is the ‘emotional seat’ of the brain, every time you are triggered by a sight, sound, smell of the original event, all the negative emotions which you experienced at the time come flooding through: over and over again!
It is like being trapped in a vicious circle…
The more times you activate these memories the stronger these negative emotions become.
And that is why many go into depression, anxiety, stress and [no matter what they try] cannot get over it! The records from my clients with (C)PTSD shows that they have spent years utilising CBT, EFT, Mindfulness, yoga with taking often over 5 medications, with the results: they still had (C)PTSD, were unable to work and many had lost their partners.
So what is the answer?
Well, it is actually a lot simpler than you think. You have to change the pictures in the Limbic System and heal the parts of you (your sub-personalities) which hold these experiences! As far as I know (and I have spent over 20 years studying adversity and the mind) this has never been done before!
Much of the medical world does not know HOW.
But I do!
I have developed a 9 step formula, called Your Envisioned Mind which allows you to do just that: change the pictures in your mind thus alleviating your (C)PTSD, depression, anxiety, stress symptoms in the privacy of your own home in just a few short weeks. Guaranteed!
