Trauma Dissolution Procedure

This powerful procedure is powerful because it uses the four basic faculties of intelligence -- attention, intention, memory, and imagination -- in so thoroughgoing a way.

It is not an analytical procedure, nor does it require a distinct memory or a "right answer" to surface at each step. The mere reading (or statement) of the words of instruction to oneself, at each step, calls up whatever feeling (not mental meaning) resides in subconscious memory (as in a Rorschach test); filling-out the content with each of the four faculties of intelligence in the combinations given surfaces the material and provokes conscious integration and some measure of release. You are likely to remember all kinds of buried things, but that is not a requirement for effectiveness, only a secondary sign that the procedure is working.

Specifically refrain from filtering for "correctness"; take what comes (or the absence of anything coming up) and move to the next step, even if it seems wrong. This guideline applies particularly to the three-part steps, which defy the conceptual mind. Do not cut corners; be deliberate.

You may find it difficult, at some point, to keep your mind on the instructions. This difficulty is a sign of the intended dissolution caused by this procedure.

Use of The Gold Key Release, where indicated, cleans things up, further.

My experience is that more-or-less intense "burn-off" in the day or days that follow is likely, as untouched content surfaces, keenly felt, in the context of release that the procedure sets up.

No assessment of its value is valid without having gone through the procedure, at least once.

DEFINITIONS:

  • cringing: shrinking into oneself, withdrawal, avoidance
  • incapacitation: "losing your head", immobilization, losing your capacities
  • relief: a feeling of having come back to life
  • wholesomeness: feeling whole, well-being, having all ones capacities

COMMENTARY ON THE THEORY OF TRAUMA and THIS PROCEDURE

The theory of trauma advanced by Bessel van der Kolk in The Body Keeps the Score, holds that trauma entails the formation of memories that are stored in the right hemisphere of the brain without corresponding organization ordinarily provided by the left hemisphere. Thus, memories exist without context or the mental organization that would allow them to be remembered, processed, and intelligently integrated. They exist as dissociated fragments that influence life from a hidden place, occasionally surfacing in an elusive way.


What is missing, in that situation, is integrity among the four faculties of intelligence -- attention, intention, memory, and imagination (expectation). One or more are suppressed or incapacitated in the mood of the cringe response. In addition, the sense of healthy function has been lost in a kind of amnesia that corresponds to the sensory-motor amnesia (SMA) described by Thomas Hanna in his book, Somatics | ReAwakening the Mind's Control of Movement, Flexibility and Health; I have titled this condition, Attentional-Intentional Amnesia. This condition might be termed, "incapacitation".

This, this procedure covers the bases of transformation of trauma, from cringing and incapacitation to relief and wholesomeness.

What's left, at this point, is to test it, in yourself.
