I wanted to share with you this testimonial I received recently from one of my clients:
“After I healed both my Childhood History Trauma and my Dental History Trauma with Amy, I stopped having nightmares, actually started sleeping well and having pleasant dreams for the first time I can ever remember…AND, I was able to sit in a dentist’s chair like it was nothing while the dentist drilled on my teeth for 2 1/2 hours.
Due to childhood neglect and abuse followed by numerous head traumas, I was missing many teeth and could not chew on one side of my mouth. I had seen dentists gasp in shock when I white-knuckled it to let them peek into my mouth. They’d look horrified and many told me they could not help me because there was too much to be done. When I met a dentist who offered to help me finally fix my teeth, I was sure I would not be able to handle having the work done. My dental history had been so shameful and so painful for me my whole life and my childhood was such a nightmare so the idea of sitting in a dentist’s chair, tilted down low with a masked man leaning close over me, a big bright light shining into my eyes and no easy escape—it was not something I could even talk about, let alone do.
That is all in the past now. Woo hoo! I got the dental work done and I now have a really nice set of teeth to show off as I smile a big, full smile now. I used to have a little smile as I tried to hide my awful-looking teeth. Having beautiful teeth has been my lifelong dream. I seriously still can hardly believe it every time I look in the mirror. I am so grateful! Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
If a person has a particular area of their life they’d rather not talk about, this may be a sign of what we call “history trauma”. Sometimes people have an event in their history that is wrapped up in so much pain and trauma, they wall it off behind fear and avoidance. This is not the same as repressing traumatic memories. In fact, with history trauma, people are very aware of the trauma, they just don’t want to think about it or deal with it at all.
Unfortunately, when these people come to therapy, they are fairly skilled at deflecting attention away from what needs healing the most. Luckily with HBLU (Healing from the Body Level Up), we have created a specific process to safely bring down the wall of fear and avoidance and drain the old trauma that was stored behind it. When we do this, people have complete boundaries with their history and it no longer overwhelms them. Their history is just that—history. The emotional charge that surrounded that part of their lives becomes manageable and neutral. In addition, they also have complete boundaries with any emotional charge they absorbed and have been carrying around from other people’s painful history.
This simple process is truly amazing because people experience an immediate symptom reduction. Results my clients report have included:
- Cessation of the “shakes” and no more tremors
- Not getting triggered into freezing
- No more intrusive nightmares (PTSD reaction), begin dreaming good dreams
- No more insomnia, begin sleeping well
- Recovery from most illness or improved immune system functioning
- Reduced fatigue and more energy
- Fewer angry outbursts and more patience
- Elimination of unexplained heart palpitations or panic attacks
- Reduction or elimination of anxiety
- Eradication of other emotional and neurological symptoms.
Why does this work so quickly? It makes sense—we know that one trauma, let alone a whole series of stacked or successive traumas, puts a huge stress load on the central nervous system. This stress inevitably affects the client’s brain and neurology.
And because history trauma causes such stress on the body, we have listed clearing it as the first priority in our sessions, after getting clear access to the deepest wisdom through muscle testing. We take this important step so quickly for three reasons:
1. Some clients might otherwise quit within the first three sessions because they are so afraid of opening up about that area of their life.
2. Clients with history trauma say things like: “I just want to talk with you,” or “I just need to vent.” In this way they use distraction to prevent getting down to the business of healing patterns—which is the whole reason they come for HBLU instead of talk therapy.
3. In some cases, serious history trauma will manifest as clients either refusing to write their autobiography or writing it while crying the entire time.
