Almost every client I have is a victim of abuse, cruelty and Post Traumatic Stress. It makes the energies in a person change in many ways. People who suffer abuse have negativity drawn to them. The reason for this is that the energies of abuse have never been worked through in their lives. The clients I have also go to psychiatrists, and tried medications where it has not helped them as it did not address the problems. 90% of the people I have has clients have tried modern medicine and not had it work.
People who abuse others start energies that attract the negative to them. A pattern of abuse brings about a pattern of thought that attracts negativity. The person is always watching so if something happens they can survive it. They equate their childhood with their present. Situations bring out reactions that they do not recognize. It cripples them and brings problems to them their whole life.
We learn by example and others behavior so we have to overcome the examples and results of abuse and cruelty in our lives. I have had people mention many methods to me. One is NLP and it is Neuro Linguistic Programming. It can be used to set a message into our brain so we can take ownership of our life. People who are abusive seem to have a knack for using this method even with out knowing it exists. A counter program will help at times.
I also know a person who used EFT which is Emotional Freedom Technique. I have talked to many people and they have had mixed reviews of the method. Yet it has helped people so is worth talking about as a way to overcome our reactions from the past.
Introspective meditation which watches the mind and how the thoughts flow is very helpful in helping yourself not to be a person of reactions. The Buddhists call this the monkey mind that never stops chattering. Stilling the monkey mind can liberate the mental processes of a persons life.
The American Indians used journeying to travel to where their fears existed. It is also called the archaeous method. You find the fear and overcome it by wrestling it into defeat in the Indian journeying. It then vanishes and you have won over that fear.
Every spiritual healing also has the patient making a journey into themselves. They have to overcome the abuse, trauma, cruelty and post traumatic stress from the spiritual forces that have harassed them.
It is the journey to empower and change yourself. No one else can do it for you.
