Traumas in the 9 Centers


We have all heard about the shadow part of the open centers and how this can cause us long-term traumas. However, more and more I am observing how people are having traumas in their defined centers as well. For example, people with defined emotions may have a hard time expressing what they feel. Defined egos could feel like they have no value or worth. This is because we are all dealing with the same energy, some create this energy others just multiply it.

When you have a definition you are the one that creates this energy and when you are open you just receive and increase it. So if you have a friend with a defined solar plexus and you have an open one. What will happen if you spend a lot of time together, even sleep together? If you haven’t worked on your not-self themes you will most likely take in and multiply the emotional intensity he has. Even more, if he has a hard time connecting with his emotions you will feel that inadequacy even more inside of you either as supper suppression or hipper expression.

Trauma manifests itself as certain behaviors or patterns that we develop over time. These trauma masks we carry are formed to keep us safe from the wound beneath. Here we will point out some of the trauma behaviors that could be formed in the 9 centers.
