In order to understand the effects of early childhood trauma, we must know when and how it begins.
How We Develop Perception About Things
When we come into the body as a little child, we have to design an operating system for our whole lives.
We have no qualifications whatsoever for developing operating system.
We have to write the programs, about how we’re going to be, how we’re going to relate to people, how are we going to think about our talents or abilities, how are we going to think about the world, and we have no training whatsoever to do that.
We’re like little sponges, absorb things from the environment around us.
How We Interpret Perceptions
And one thing we know too, is we even interpret them is not just what’s in our genetic structure is not just in what parents or the people do, but it’s how we interpret what they do.
That’s another component, that’s just as powerful in our development.
We are developing a whole personalities and operating system, and then we forget 99% of it.
We’re even know how we got there?
We live the rest of our lives wondering: why I’m reacting this way, why I’m creating this result in my life, why I always have scarcity, why I always feel abandoned in my life?
Child Traumas Before Birth
Because those things are just encoding some information, and they start out with just the traumas that we experience and in the uterus.
We know from a lot of research studies now when cameras are placed in the uterus, that they react to the environment, they react to how parents are feeling, the emotional states, they react to positive music, they react to fights that parents might be having, they react to anxiety experiences, or sadness, if one had a parent who died or there was an accident around something about that nature, the fetus reacts while in the uterus.
How Childhood Trauma Effects on Drawing Conclusions
We also had multiple experiences once we’re born, all those who have been coding some information in our limbic system, our survival brain.
Then as we begin to have language, we begin to experience effects of early childhood trauma, draw conclusions about things, we give interpretations and we start having beliefs like: I must not be worthy, I must not be good enough, because as little kids we experience our parents as gods, who are capable of everything and anything.
So if I’m not getting the love and approval I want, it couldn’t be that they’re incapable of giving it to me or they have some kind of limitation, we take it must be my problem then, I must be insufficient, I must be unworthy.
All those kind of things we start developing very very early.
Then it becomes our operating system and we print the results of that out like in a computer program, we print that out in our lives over and over again not knowing where it comes from.
Recovering from Childhood Traumas
The good news now is there are methods for ascertaining, exactly where those traumas are, not necessarily what they are, because it’s just encoding some information, and methods that can be used now as you download those on, as the download click to “download this movie”.
Ye can find out exactly, how to go to those places, identify where those traumas are, techniques you can use, and those can be clear, and much like pressing a delete button on your computer.
That’s the good news, we can clear out those effects of early childhood traumas, we can clear out that programming of those core beliefs that we have.
We can use that to help us be able to be in charge of our thoughts, because if those traumas and that those beliefs are not cleared, many will have much more trouble stopping those negative thoughts.
It’s much like a train going along 80 miles an hour down the track, but you’ve got you’re trying to put on brakes, but you’ve got two three or four diesel engines chugging and pushing at full speed keeping the train going at the same time you’re putting on brakes, I just doesn’t work very well, and yet that’s what most of us are trying to do and we monitor those thoughts. We’re trying to stop those thoughts while we help engines pushing it like crazy and those have to be attended to for us to have full success
You Are Not Alone
We all came up having some kind of painful experience, none of us had a perfect childhood.
None of us had love and acceptance all the time.
Even if we had, we’re likely to distort it and perceive it is not being there sometimes, because that’s just what we do.
So one thing we can do is if we have a certain pattern playing out in our lives, we know that there had to be some kind of painful experiences as we perceived it, that had to originate that, then that is to draw a conclusion, and we can mostly easily identify that belief system by what it is we’re manifesting in our lives.
If I’m always feeling rejected by some people in my life, that believe must be I developed when i was little.
I must have developed a belief that I’m rejectable or the people are going to reject me.
If I had a belief that people will be unkind to me, and I may have to behave defensively first, or be unkind to them first, or to avoid them in order for them to treat me unkindly.
But if that happens I know I must have had some experiences that led me to draw those conclusions to play those out.
So, effects of early childhood trauma are the most often source of all of our suffering.
