Beginning to Discover Your Emotional Root Cause


If you haven’t read last week’s blog about the 3 emotional root cause phases of disease, click here to read it now! It will help you understand this blog more easily and help you shed light on your own root cause.
Now I’m going to help you look back over your life up to this point so you can discover what emotional traumas might have triggered your health problems.

Mapping Out Your Timeline

Think about your life as a timeline. From the point of your conception until the day you become independent and leave home, your brain is recording every single thing that’s ever happened to you. The good, the bad, the ugly. Some of those things you resolve, and some of those things you don’t resolve.
Once you leave home, your brain stops recording, says to itself, “Ok we are alive. This was a successful program. Let’s rinse and repeat that recording.”
Whatever age you became independent, your life will now run in cycles of that number.
Let’s use me as an example. I became independent at 20. At 20 I started paving my own way in life. I had a job and my parents weren’t supporting me anymore. So my timeline runs in cycles of 20.
So my brain has been recording everything from 0 to 20. And this says, “Wow. Even though she experienced all this trauma in those 20 years, being taken from my dad, and being raised by an abusive stepdad — everything. Even though she experienced all this stuff, and some of it is unresolved, she’s still alive at 20 years old.” And the brain goes, “Wow. Because she’s still alive, this must be a successful program. We’re going to replay this program for another 20 years, another 20 years, another 20 years.”
Start at 0 and determine what year you became independent. For you, it may be 19. For somebody else, it might be 25.

Identify Trauma Along Your Timeline

Your next step is to think back in that first cycle of your life and identify any major traumas that happened, and at what age they occurred.
If something is unresolved, in my case at age 3 when I was originally separated from my dad, then something similar is going to happen in my second track, three years in.
And then, if you go into your next cycle, which would be 43 for me, and it’s still happening, the trauma is still unresolved. Your brain is still in conflict.
Going back to my example again. I was separated from my dad at three. We moved in with my stepdad, and it was hard. Well, 23 comes along. What did I do? I moved to California and was separated from my family, and it was hard.
Look back and see that something similar happened 3 years in, in the second track, you know that the trauma is not resolved.
Then you know you’re carrying this trauma with you.
This explains how people who are perfectly healthy, or live a healthy lifestyle, can all of the sudden have a disease. They might have resolved something that was really old that they don’t remember, or even have been set up while in the womb for a disease that plays out 50 years later.

Connecting Trauma with Disease

At age 43, I reunited with my dad. We were no longer separated, according to my brain. So it said, “We healed it on the brain. Now let’s heal the body.” That’s when Lyme disease showed up.
Think back to maybe a time when you’ve been sick, or what happened right before you got sick.
What did you resolve?
You can reference my blog about which categories of traumas commonly trigger certain diseases to help you out.
Another thing is, look to the family line. Does something keep happening over and over and over? It may not just be genetic. You may have that genetic predisposition, yes. And you may have that toxic load, which drives the inflammation. Absolutely.
But why do some people’s genes get triggered and others don’t? Often they find that they have the conflict that ties with the disease. I actually tried to disprove this for several years when I was learning this. I thought, “How can that be?” But it’s always right on.
I know that it’s hard to get your brain around. I want to encourage you to stay open.
What was the final letting go that put you into a healing phase?
