This is awesome! Thanks for sharing it.
I've had some insight into the nature of trauma / PTSD. I've been studying the nature of emotions (in animals and in humans).
All animals have emotions. If you've owned a pet, you know what I"m talking about. Fear functions to protect. Love/joy/play functions to connect us to each other. Hunger functions ... etc etc. Each emotion serves a purpose.
PTSD is a conditioned response of fear in the BODY (the animal). Our human minds don't know what to do with this constant sense of fear emanating from our bodies, and we become psychologically sick trying to cope with this constant "on" state of fear. Our task is to untangle the psychological labyrinth/web that developed in us as we grew up, and then work on calming our animal bodies to tame it away from the constant state of fear.
Much like you would do patiently with a dog that was traumatized from early puppy abuse.
Though I say this like its fact, it is theory. But when I practice it, I get very positive results.
