The collective consciousness has suffered a great deal of trauma.
Think about it: our species has endured a great deal of trauma and suffering over they centuries of existence. Dating back to antiquity, we have fended off wolves, sabertooth tigers, and (unfortunately) one another.
In today’s world, we have all the opportunity to move past this trauma. Finally, we have achieved a state of abundance and prosperity where its possible for our species to begin moving into a better future. It is now more likely that we can start overcoming trauma and move through the darkness of previous years into a more abundant future. There is much to explore and enjoy, even in the face of bitter hardship that still rages around the world.
There is so much we can enjoy once we begin overcoming trauma at the collective level. However, in order to facilitate that healing, we must help each other from a place of empathy and strength. Once we learn and accept that everyone is battling with the same demons and problems, we can grow from empathy of another’s position in the world. We can heal collectively and move into the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible. Finally, we can be as one whole.
Overcoming Trauma Individually
Trauma in a variety of forms is holding back our world. What is trauma? Effectively, an emotional state where a person is unable to step into and become the individual they are meant to be due to immense hardship suffered. Psychologically, traumatic incidents can be not fully processed by the brain due to the severity of the incident. When this happens, it can lead to the development of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) because the brain is unable to process the event due to the severe trauma. When this happens, it can result in the brain remaining in a state where it believes that the incident is still happening at that moment, even if it happened many years before.
Overcoming trauma necessitates a societal movement towards collective healing. In truth, our entire society is traumatized in one way or another due to our disconnection with nature and our thrust towards a more anxious and stressful world that we all desperately want to overcome.
How do we collectively heal from trauma?
Starting from a place of love and compassion can help lead us towards ultimate healing from trauma. When we understand how important it is to empathize with another’s experience, we can begin to collectively heal and start overcoming trauma. When this happens at a collective level, we can free ourselves to move forward toward a better horizon.
