Where does trauma fit in?
Big trauma. Little trauma. Sudden trauma. Chronic trauma.
Where do our systems fit in?
Family systems. Work systems. Health care systems. School systems.
Feeling the fear and releasing it. Be with it, work with it, not against it. Experience it, don't try to manage it
Deeper mind/body awareness, employ mindfulness during routine tasks and monitor breathing and ability to scan your body without judgment. Body awareness through movement. Reframing exercises and anchoring techniques that help you preset your response to specific situations. Live with intention, reconnect with that space within you that is always calm and at peace.
INTENTION560 is your home for reconnecting and living in intention.
And here's why:
Most of us live in autopilot. Which is to say, we live in a reactive state. We react in the moment, without thinking, totally unconsciously. Our reactions are survival based using our subconscious mind. So the more reacting we do, the less empowered we are, the harder we are trying to survive. And before long we are in a cycle, or in autopilot.
We have an ability to respond instead of react. The difference between a reaction and a response is that a response is slower and takes into consideration the well being of yourself and others around you. A response comes from the conscious and subconscious minds working together. It considers long term instead of just survival and is based on your core values.
The subconscious working alone with old programming operates on beliefs, fears, limitations and stories
you aren't even aware of. Your subconscious will obstruct your conscious efforts because it is trying to help you survive so it protects your beliefs, fears, limitations and stories.
So, how do you move towards responding instead of reacting if your subconscious is actively doing its job of derailing you for your own survival? It's simple. It's not easy, but it's simple.
First, you have to understand why your subconscious is programmed the way it is. Somewhere along the way you experienced a disconnection of self. The disconnection of self in response to an event, not the event itself, is trauma. Again, trauma is not the event, it's the impact. Not many of us have not experienced a trauma, or disconnect from self, in our lives. Most of us have experienced a disconnect in early childhood before we had the ability to use our conscious mind at adult capacity.
Now, our operating systems run on beliefs our subconscious mind ingeniously programmed for our survival. But we are no longer in survival. So we have to work with our subconscious to release everything that's stored in there that no longer serves us, and re-imprint it with what does serve us.
If you think of it, the subconscious mind is ever so wise with an amazingly intuitive quick response. If we can release and reprogram it to work fluidly with our conscious mind, can you imagine how you could change the trajectory of your life! This is where freedom is.
The mind and body are connected. The disconnection doesn't just affect the mind. If our body doesn't have the ability to complete a response it stays stuck and stored and our systems become dysregulated.
The incomplete response stays stuck and stored in the body. If you could have completed a response, you wouldn't have adapted by disconnecting, and your body would not have stored it.
So it's simple, have a completed response, stay connected to self, nervous system stays regulated. Find an incomplete response, work through it, connect back to self, self-regulate.
You may not have taken full responsibility for it yet because you didn't have the support and resources you needed to get down to the root cause of your reactions. (Remember, we have the ability to respond, but our ability is just about as unique as our fingerprints, there is no one size fits all.) Or, you may have already done tons of personal growth work and have a few lingering things you can't get to the bottom of.
Sometimes too much information creates more disconnection and keeps us cycling. This is why INTENTION560 Academy was created, to gather the important education and integrate it together into our daily lives. So much is lost in the mix when we don't integrate.
Trauma is when you disconnect from yourself. It's that simple of a definition. A disconnection can come all at once in a big event or slow and steady over a lifetime. This disconnection causes stress. Why? Because it tells us we are in danger and we are naturally wired to protect ourselves from threat. Over time we have been programmed how to protect ourselves, and therefor how we react. When the disconnection happened, we didn't have the ability to complete a response for one reason or another, so we have stored those disconnections, i.e. trauma and stress. Usually our inability to complete a response was because we were dependent on our caretakers for survival because we were too small to survive on our own. That's why early childhood is where most disconnection originates. Of course, an incomplete response can create a reaction based in survival which creates a web of reactions in its path.
or have everything you ever wanted but still aren't happy, or experience a glitch of some kind on your path to carving out your way, we all face it in some way at some point.
early childhood loss and trauma
the more loss accrued, the greater risk of disorder, disease, addiction, relationship trouble
these are not issues, they are vulnerabilities
where are you vulnerable
early childhood stress, or trauma, results in adaptations that help the child survive in the short term but are the basis of pathology (physical/mental illness) later on
it is not an intellectual block, it is an emotional block
society research oriented, knowledge factories, gather more money for more research
simply apply what we already know..keep it simple
childhood trauma shows link to addiction but more studies needed..NO
the need for research and intellectualization is a factor of denial, that denial is really about people's own emotional pain, so we don't open to the existence in others because then
If we just see a child has certain needs, if you meet those needs that child will be just fine, and if the don't they have to adapt and those adaptations are base for disfunction later on
It's not simplistic, it's simple, we make it complicated because of our denial
Human science, psychology, education...emotional denial and social need. If you're going to invest into a society that fundamentally objectifies people then you have to fundamentally ignore their emotional and spiritual needs. Producers or commodity consumers..people
Sense of betrayal
Become helpful and nice, coping pattern. You can be genuinely nice and supportive of others and still look out for your own needs, but a lot are like this by suppressing their needs.
Wired for attachment. Without attachment we wouldn't survive. Without community we wouldn't survive as a species.
Authenticity, without it we won't survive. If you aren't in touch with yourself out in the wild, you don't survive. Being able to act on your awareness of self to the environment. If you feel something you pay attention to that, if you don't, you're in danger.
The dilema...if you're authentic, your attachment could be in danger, the child will automatically supress their authenticity and gut feelings is a coping mechanism (no longer in touch with needs emotionally, won't be aware of needs, won't express them, serve others needs ignoring my own, hence disease, develop false needs like addictions, etc) Irresolvable tension between authenticity and attachment that many children in our society are faced with that results in our self suppression. The Western Medical model (not the science, the practice..the science is at odds with the practice) the practice of it makes to devastating separations. Mind from body, emotions from the physiology, individual from environment. So we don't see how the physiology of people reflects their life long emotional experience. Emotionally isolated, stress levels higher, physiologically straight forward. Exchange of chemicals, systems talking 24/7. The heart has a brain. Brain and heart send out electromagnetic. Gut is organ of digestion and so much more, also an immune organ protecting you from bacteria and toxins and a sensory organ helping to read environment..sending more info to the brain than the brain to the gut.
How to connect to your subconscious mind, consciously.
The process of reconnecting and choosing intention over autopilot. Because we don't just want to help you experience a transformation, we want to help you change the trajectory of your life.
