All of us have had traumas in our lives. They could be dramatic and unforgettable. They could also be nearly silent, barely noticed, yet working beneath our consciousness to create great complexes and a life of inaction – a life that could have been lived with the joy of the moment. I have had a significant number of clients who come to me with one issue that actually turns out to be another one. When we are silent, when we are in a trance, we have that rare opportunity to allow a trauma, often from long ago, become present in our minds. We can shut it out or we can deal with it. When we shut it out, we will miss out on some of the great joys of our lives. When we announce it, we can work with it, resolve it and live a future without a past that is predetermining our lives and our level of happiness.
