Because the imprinting of the mind-pattern in this reality most often occurs by the age of five, a child does not usually have tools to deal with any trauma that he/she experiences. When a child experiences trauma, he/she cannot just walk away, get in a car, or leave.
The child has no conscious choice but to remain in the circumstance and fully experience it. Left without tools to deal with trauma, he/she retreats in the only way he/she knows how— and that is to mentally close out the outer world and emotionally retreat inside. Keep in mind that a child’s perception of trauma may be quite different than an adult’s.
This emotional retreat may be expressed in a variety of ways. Physically, these expressions might show as the following symptoms with the corresponding mind-pattern:
» Accidents/broken bones— a release and rearrangement of pent-up anger
» Bedwetting/bladder infections—being angry/“pissed off” about outer circumstances
» Chills – fear
» Colds – confusion and doubt, congestion about outer circumstances
» Earaches— not wanting to hear what is being expressed in the outer world
» Fevers— internal angers
» Sore throats—suppressed words that need to come out
» Vision/eye problems—not wanting to see what is going on around
Without proper tools to deal with outer circumstances, these are common childhood reactions to internalizing emotional trauma. (Cont’d)
