Trauma and Its Effects on the Psyche/Spirit (reblogged)

This is pertinent to what has been going on in our world lately, & so I am bumping it up….

Trauma and Its Effects on the Psyche/Spirit 

(Links to resources at bottom of article)

Most people these days understand that trauma has psychological effects. If you’ve been reading my other articles, then you understand that the word psyche derives from both Greek and Latin words that refer to “spirit“.

Psychology is therefore, the study of the psyche or spirit.

Trauma in childhood is recognized in the psychological community as having a negative impact on behavior, causing things like PTSD, Depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Antisocial Personality Disorder, Paranoid Personality Disorder, and Schizoid Personality Disorder, to name a few. I suspect that the more trauma a person has in their life, whether in childhood or adulthood, the more problems will manifest in their psyche (spirit), and in their behavior, causing them to be prescribed multiple psych drugs over their lifetimes.

Is this some sort of a formula or what?

While I do have some strong misgivings about the discipline of psychology and their over-emphasis on drugs for behavioral disorders, when there are no real objective tests for most of these disorders, this does not make psychology an invalid science… just a flawed & corrupted one, in need of more thorough oversight in the community, since it seems like the whole discipline has fallen into the hands of big pharma.

People with PTSD have been found to have elevated stress hormones (cortisol) which can lead to heart disease, and also to the shrinkage of the hippocampus (which affects the transfer of facts from short-term to long-term memory).

Trauma & Circumcision:

After doing some research on the subject of trauma & PTSD, I have noticed that the most common groups studied in relation to this are veterans & children. I find it interesting that no one seems to be studying the effects of trauma in infancy. I realize that this may be more difficult to get anecdotal information from infants, however, one could measure the amounts of cortisol in the brain before & after a circumcision, for example, or before and after a child is taken from its natural mother during the adoption process.

I mention circumcision because it is the mutilation of a male child’s penis, usually done immediately after birth, unless the child is an orthodox Jew, who will get this done at 13 years old, viewing it as a “rite of passage”. When I consider circumcision, I cannot help but consider the long term psychological impact of this practice on a newborn baby. Sadly, the families who allow it & the doctors who perform it apparently do not question the ramifications of this wicked trauma done on a newborn. I think this is why so many males don’t question going off to war… they’ve already been prepped with violence.

Circumcision is a physical assault on the most sensitive part of a male child’s body, which then makes it a violation of the psyche as well. If considered in combination with the existence of the chakras, this mutilation of an organ in the root chakra has affects on emotions involving security needs. Trauma at such a young age, whether through circumcision or through the unceremonious routines of measuring & weighing, blood testing, a vitamin K shot, vaccines, & drops or ointment in the eyes, would seem to have some sort of emotional impact on the psyche of a newborn baby that is supposed to be experiencing its first few hours bonding with its mother.

About the root chakra:The root chakra is responsible for your sense of belonging, safety, and security in the world.  It’s main concern is survival of the self. (Emphasis Mine) The health of our blood, immune system, bones, joints and spine is dependent on the emotions associated with this chakra. It envelops the body’s basic needs for safety, money, sexuality, groundedness and boundaries.  People who have trouble with their first chakra may not have developed a strong identity and have not discovered their life purpose.  If they are too yin they may be ungrounded.  If they are too yang there might be too much attachment to material things, too much self-indulgence and a preoccupation with satisfaction of their own needs.”  – from naturalhealthtechniques.com (link below)

So any trauma in early infancy would naturally have effects on the root chakra, causing security issues in the psyche, which then ripens them up to be conditioned into good little consumers, who are very needy, and often greedy.

Circumcision would of course have the strongest impact of all the “routine” procedures done to a newborn after birth. Have you ever seen a circumcision on a newborn baby? The one I saw was awful, & proved to me that babies do feel pain, regardless of what the doctor may tell you. The question is, what are the long term effects of such a traumatic procedure on an infant’s psyche?

It is my feeling that trauma in infancy & early childhood has a tendency to soften up the mind & make people more easily controlled by the societal conditioning, which is in turn, controlled by the so-called “hidden hand” (corporate elites), through the use of education, religion, television, movies, music, literature, & yes, even through the use of brain implants, on par with the research of people like Dr. Jose Delgado & Dr. Ewen Cameron. It sets in the newborn’s mind, a state of shock, coloring almost everything that happens shortly after birth, including the bonding experience with the parents. I suspect that the traumatized brain of an infant or young child is much more easily hypnotized by the flicker-rate of the television, which is known to induce a trance-like state in those who watch it.

Trauma & Adoption:

There are other traumas that occur during infancy, such as adoption. Now recognized as a traumatic experience by many metal health professionals, with life-long consequences, adoption has a deep psychological impact on the child, leading to a disproportionate number of adoptees seeking help for mental health issues. Adoptees often end up with various forms of attachment disorder, addictions, depression, & obsessive behaviors, to name a few.

While the damage from the aforementioned traumas may have already been done to the psyche, & while some of these people do need medication for the deep psychological issues caused by these events in order to be functional, would it not make perfect sense to examine evidence (measuring cortisol) that is now available with relation to trauma & its effects on the brain?

Trauma Based Mind Control:

Most people who have done any research into the subject of trauma-based mind control understand that it is a powerful way to alter the mind. The more sensational cases of people, like Cathy O’Brien or Brice Taylor, speak of the splitting of the mind into multiple personalities through the use of trauma. I contend that the creation of MPD in a person is not necessary for mind control to be achieved.

Learned Helplessness:

Evidence of this concept can be found in the way the American public mostly sat back & watched as their freedoms were eroded in the years following September 11th, 2001. Had they not been repeatedly exposed to the trauma of the event at the World Trade Center, would it have been as easy for those in power to erode American liberties? Does the fact that the United States has been at war for so many years now have a general impact on the collective psyche of its inhabitants, a population which was raised on television? Is it possible that trauma delivered on such a large scale has anchored trauma in infancy or childhood, & induced a state of learned helplessness?

“The concept of learned helplessness was discovered accidentally by psychologists Martin Seligman and Steven F. Maier. They had initially observed helpless behavior in dogs that were classically conditioned to expect an electrical shock after hearing a tone. Later, the dogs were placed in a shuttlebox that contained two chambers separated by a low barrier. The floor was electrified on one side, and not on the other. The dogs previously subjected to the classical conditioning made no attempts to escape, even though avoiding the shock simply involved jumping over a low barrier.” – from psychology.about.com (link below)

The above study was done in 1967.

Please reread that above paragraph & let the information sink in. It shows that repeated trauma can induce a state of learned helplessness.

Trauma & Television in Conditioning:

Traumatize a baby & then sit it in front of the television for a while. Most people go into a sort of trance when watching television anyway, due to the flicker-rate (aka “refresh-rate”) effect. Since the child’s mind is like a sponge, it will suck up all the programming you want. Granted, this is a highly contested statement about television programming, however, it should be considered that, at the very least, watching TV can put a person into a hypnotic, trance-like state, causing things being said to them afterwards to have the possibility of becoming a post-hypnotic suggestion. Hence, advertising.

Let me illustrate this idea: Let’s say you are a 13 year old kid, watching a couple of hours of TV before bed. Right after you turn that TV off, you hear your dad complaining that you didn’t take the trash out or get the mail. He gets angry & says that you’re stupid a number of times. Does this statement that you are stupid have an increased possibility of becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy because you were just in a trance for the past 2 hours before hearing it? Would there be a difference in the effect depending on whether you experienced trauma in infancy or early childhood? Could this have something to do with the reason many victims of mind control programs cite the ritual drowning at 3 years old as being one of their experiences?

It seems to me that trauma has as one of its effects a type of fracture of the psyche or spirit. Setting newborn babies up in this way has caused most of us to end up with an unnatural state of need & insecurity, which is then played on by all sorts of advertising making people desire things they do not need. It also has, as an unfortunate (but possibly intended) side effect: a tendency to cause symptoms such as obsessions, attention deficit disorders, depression, hoarding, paranoia, eating disorders, drug & alcohol addiction, shopping addictions, social anxiety, & other behaviors categorized as mental dysfunction. In reality, these behavioral problems are merely a reaction to adverse stimuli that has occurred since birth, & in some cases, over the course of a lifetime.

Natural Trauma:

There are plenty of traumas that are natural aspects of life. These include birth, loss of a parent, injuries, etc. These natural traumas may cause some issues with the psyche, but they will be healed over time. The problem is that there are so many orchestrated & manipulated traumas in a person’s life these days, including the examples I mentioned above, that the psyche never gets a real chance to heal.

Conclusion:

Between trauma in infancy & early childhood, and trauma witnessed in the news every day, it becomes clear to see an atmosphere of terror is causing these mental/emotional/spiritual issues to manifest in people. The event of what happened to the World Trade Center marked a turning point in traumatizing the masses to allow those with power to enslave the people in such a way, that they would not even recognize their slavery.

Is it any wonder that so many people these days are running to the psych doctor for medication to alleviate their symptoms?

Is it any wonder that people have allowed their civil liberties to be eroded, given the discovery of learned helplessness as related to trauma? This has been going on longer than anyone realizes, & has far reaching implications.

The Use of Color in Mind Control Conditioning to Divide & Conquer

(Metaphysical Forensics)

The Use of Color in Mind Control Conditioning to Divide & Conquer

Mind Control, while ubiquitous & pervasive in modern society, is acting on a level unseen by many people who argue vehemently that it does not exist. It becomes a sort of “can’t see the forest for the trees” issue. Perhaps they are not consciously aware of its effects on their psyche, if they are truly conscious at all (a topic for another article).

As I have noted in previous articles, psyche is a Greek word meaning spirit, incidentally. Mind Control indeed affects the spirit, which is evident in part, in the fact that so many people are on psych meds for one reason or another, & that there is no definitive objective test for most of the psychiatric ailments in the DSM (another topic for another article). This article specifically deals with the use of color in mind control conditioning.

fastfoodadvMost people are familiar with the use of color in advertising. For example, fast food restaurants usually use the colors red, orange, & yellow on their street signs. Take McDonalds & Burger King for example. Do you know why they chose these colors?

Research into the subject of color used in fast food advertising would yield a variety of results. However, what I have discovered is that, predominantly, red is associated with a sense of urgency, yellow with hunger, & orange with impulse buying. checkerboard

Of course, black & white are really obvious regarding the “divide & conquer” method used in conditioning. Get one set of people to identify with the color white, the other to identify with black, then you have a bit of instant mind control, due to the commonly accepted symbolic meanings of those colors. In reality, most people in the world are different shades of brown.

brideandgroom2White is thought of as representing purity, which is why white is traditionally worn by the bride in weddings, but then why does the groom traditionally wear black, I wonder? White is also usually ascribed more positive qualities while black is often associated with the negative, especially when paired together. The term “black & white” often refers to a lack of detail, as in “it’s not all black & white”. Black is often associated with darkness & evil, hence the term “black magic” & it connotations.

Red is known to be stimulating, while blue is usually calming. This can also be applied to warm & cool colors in general, but red & blue are the quintessential warm & cool colors, so I suspect that they would have the strongest effect in those areas, respectively.

That which divides in order control has been doing it for millennia. It sorts male & female into radically different colors to divide them from each other. If you’re a baby boy, then you will most likely spend babyhood & childhood in a room full of blue, & if a girl, you get pink. What does being surrounded by a specific color through early childhood do to the child’s psyche?

PrincessRoomStudies show that being exposed to certain colors can affect performance. Exposing students to the color red prior to an exam has been shown to have a negative impact on test performance. Could it be that red overstimulates the mind, making it difficult to focus? If a baby girl is surrounded by pink from babyhood into the tweens, could inhibit her ability to learn & retain information?

Some may say “girls get pink not red” to confuses the issue. Pink is light red as “baby blue” is light blue.

Why IS there a “battle of the sexes” anyway? Why is it that men & women are so radically different? Why are women often considered neurotic, catty, & high maintenance? Could it have anything to do with the effects of color on the psyche, at least in part? Of course there are other contributing factors (like conditioning through movies, dolls, television ads), but the use of color as assigned to gender is the first form of conditioning with color, that affects the newborn baby, which will then be built upon, as that child grows up.

The pink/blue thing is a societal construct used for control. When a new baby is on the way, everyone wants to know what gender it is so they can buy the appropriate gift for the shower. Conditioning begins before the baby is even born.babyboysroom

If the unborn child is to be a girl, the baby shower will have a predominance of the color pink: pink decorations, pink plates & cups, pink gifts. By the same token, if the baby is going to be a boy, the shower will be all blue. Given the different effects of color on the psyche, can you imagine what it is like o spend the first few years of your life in an all-pink room, versus an all-blue room?

This marks the very beginning of how psychology (the study of the psyche/spirit) will be used on people, to divide & conquer. By making women & men so radically opposed to each other in the assignment of color based on gender, males & females are then more easily divided by needs & interests later on. The more you divide people from one another, the more they are likely to feel alone (at least subconsciously), & the easier it is to control them using the myriad of methods out there, including education, music, television, movies, and more.

If the heads of a family unit (mother & father) are divided, even if only subconsciously, then there will be arguments that might not otherwise occur if people were on an even playing field. This breeds easier control on the children, who will sense the disparity between the parents.

colorwheelThe colors red & blue aren’t even compliments on the color wheel. They are not next to each other either. A similar situation exists in assigning symbols to people based on gender. They are not exactly opposite (complimentary), nor are they very similar. In the case of colors, the dividing is symbolic & the radically different colors affect the psyche differently. In the case of the commonly accepted symbols for male & female, the dividing happens through a process known as MaleFemaleSymbolsArchetypal Transference”, & is still unseen by those who are not fully conscious.

Once you can see how colors affect the psyche, & how different colors are assigned to people based on gender, the question then becomes: How long have males been blue and females been pink, & who decided that these colors should be assigned to human beings at birth?

Whether an accident or with intent, the dividing of people with color still has deleterious effects on the collective psyche of the general population, albeit on a subconscious level. This is why it is so hard to see the effects of it.
