When you distance yourself from the source of suffering, when you name it as opposite to what you want to be, you lose a chance to change it.
Because it continues to live inside you, as part of you, making you make many of your choices, but you refuse to recognize it, so you remain in ignorant bliss and you continue to suffer.
Whenever something hurts you and you don’t accept it fully as a complete part of your history, you create a gap in your memory; a gap which, when the hurt is strong or repeated many times, becomes occupied by a spirit of trauma.
When you conquer them, it brings profound healing, reverses unhappiness, and treats disease.
Diseases are the means by which an organism tries to fight the traumas on its own.
When you free yourself from trauma, you heal your ancestors and protect generations after you.
When we go through life, the traumas we experience stay in us as painful knots, and are tightened by the Spirits of Trauma.
If we don’t untie these knots during our lives, we are going to have this done after our physical deaths.
It doesn’t matter if we believe in the afterlife or not.
