Trauma wreaks havoc on the mind, body, and soul, and the only way to stop it from festering is by doing the work to integrate it.
The problem is, many of us aren’t even conscious of our trauma in the first place.
Despite trauma controlling every aspect of our lives, more often than not, it’s stored in the back of our brain, and without doing the work to delve into the issues head-on, we might not even know it exists, let alone how to fix it.
That begs the question: how do we access our trauma when our bodies are so determined to keep it from us?
Is there ever a time when it’s more beneficial to keep our past locked in our subconscious?
In this episode, psychotherapist and brain health warrior, Terrina Picarello shares how to rewire our brains, access our trauma, and embrace full consciousness.
Do not settle for anything less than optimal brain function.
Three Things You’ll Learn in This Episode
- What makes talk therapy ineffective for trauma
We can’t expect to talk through our trauma if we don’t even know it’s there. Until we get to the source and entirely reset our unconscious trauma, talking will only ever bring us surface-level results.
- Why childhood trauma isn’t always as clear-cut as we think
When a major traumatic event takes place in our lives, it can be easier to pinpoint, but that isn’t always the case. For many of us, several smaller events may have contributed to our current mental and emotional state, and it takes a process of re-engineering to access those and understand the effect they’ve had.
- How our brains prevent us from accessing the truth
Our unconscious brain determines 95% of all adult behavior, meaning we’ll never get to the root cause of why we are the way we are – at least not on our own. Without the correct guidance and training, we are almost completely in the dark.
