When we have any experience that is too much, too fast, too soon, and for too long we can think of this as Trauma.
It’s an overwhelm of the body’s system that effects its ability to recovery. Our nervous system becomes locked in a cycle that prevents us from releasing the event or experience.
We become hyper vigilant and hyper sensitive stuck in a fight/flight response and unable to regulate ourselves.
We find ourselves caught in obsessive thought patterns, projection, relationships, situations, and behaviours unable to find a way out or to stop.
We are in a waiting room unable to re-engage fully with life and simply unable to find the way out.
