What is happening? [part 2 of 4]

Recommended Posts

Example 1: When Martin was six years old he was in a shopping centre with his Mum. While she was talking to a friend he wandered into a nearby lift and pushed some of the buttons. The door closed and due to a technical issue stayed closed for five minutes. Martin was terrified. He felt trapped and could not see his Mum. While he was feeling a particularly intense emotion the door between his conscious and unconscious opened and sucked in the reference experience. It was recorded as “if I go in the lift I will feel terrified and might die”. An engineer got the doors open, Martin was embraced by his Mum and forgot all about the experience. 25 years later, from out of nowhere Martin has a panic attack. It might have been caused by watching a movie where someone get’s stuck in a lift, or hearing the same elevator music, or perhaps it was the same distinct smell that lift 25 years ago had. Now Martin is suffering from anxiety, panic attacks and he looks around for a cause in his current life. He looks to his job, his relationships with his wife and parents, his finances. He cannot find the answer. On a conscious level he barely remembers the experience of 5 year old Martin.

It's very interesting.  People will say brains like mine are very self destructive and always want to die but thinking back my brain was actually very calculated and revealed my childhood memories at exactly the right time to get me sober and ensure my survival.🤔

I don't believe that anyone's brain is inherently negative. You brain malleable. It is like the cup and the emotions are what are inside. Negative and positive can build up over time, you can go from being full of positive to full of negative and vice versa. 

 

It is really interesting that your childhood memories acted as an emotional boost to get you across the line with that.

I couldn't have handled those memories until I was an adult though.  I can't imagine what my life would have been if my mind held onto the memories my whole life but is it really better to go from yesterday being around people that have the nerve to hug you and say they love you knowing full well what they did to you and then jump to the day you remember knowing you will be in grave danger as long as those people are still alive?  I'm different than most people.  If someone tries to hurt me or stop me from doing something there is nothing that can stop me from that point.
