Depression, anxiety, social phobia, personality disorders, or more commonly, self-sabotage, low self-esteem, and guilt. How are they born? Neuroscientists, biologists, psychiatrists, and psychologists have examined the potential causes of the disorders mentioned above. They identified two broad categories defined as "endogenous factors" and "environmental factors." All professionals, however, agree that the quality of care received during childhood may be more decisive than ever in inducing one or more of the disorders listed above.
Childhood Emotional Neglect can be considered the core of any emotional disease or unease experienced in adulthood. The effective deficiency can be considered the true matrix of all the discomfort of people. It can result in the shortcomings that the child experiences in the daily life of his childhood and that, gradually, can also give rise to personality disorders.
In psychological jargon, affective deficiency is defined as emotional neglect. Emotional neglect can make children effectively illiterate. Just as the child learns the alphabet in order to read, he should learn to validate his emotions in order to live well. Those who are victims of emotional neglect tend to invalidate every emotion they experience, which can lead to an emotional voidance with implications that sometimes can be tragic.
When the parental care is not adequate, the child becomes an adult completely disconnected from his emotional sphere. Some emotions work in the background, silent ... they do not rise to the surface, the adult cannot recognize them, nor can they express them except through anxiety disorders, panic attacks, depression or other physical illnesses. A child, to develop an anxiety disorder or worse, a personality disorder, must only grow in a family that ignores his emotions or does not give adequate answers.
Imagine you are a child; it should not be difficult to do as you were one once. Imagine experiencing intense emotions that your parents do not seem to notice. Nobody asks you what disturbs you, how come that you look so angry or upset ... Indeed, your parents seem to diminish your feelings - "you're too sensitive" "Hey, don't you think you're exaggerating?" "Calm down ...". As a child, you will feel hurt in feelings ... you will have learned that your emotions do not matter. Over time, you will learn to keep your emotions away, to build an inner wall to keep them hidden, to protect yourself or even your mother. Crying, getting angry, laughing too much, running for joy ... are inadequate and harmful attitudes and can become a cause for shame. Furthermore, you will continue in this manner through adolescence and adulthood. The problem of many ailments is precisely the lack of a direct connection on what happens inside of oneself and what has triggered that situation.
Every event has motivations, but many of us escape because we have not received the right training to learn the emotions. All this is reflected in every day, even in small episodes.
Example: you are waiting for a phone call from your friend, your partner or your daughter, etc.... they forget to call you and the heartbreak or tragedy begins in you.
A missed call can become a big issue for many people, trigger anger, a sense of disappointment, suffering ... "How could you forget me?" In fact, most of the time, it is not that the missed call has caused the hurt, but what that lack of it has evoked. If your mother neglected you on the day when someone forgot to call you or give you the attention you think you deserved, then you can suffer emotionally. Everyone will tell you that you are a very sensitive person, overly sensitive, but in this context, your sensitivity is linked to that old wound that has never healed and it triggers the lack that you have experienced for the difficult years of your childhood.
ANXIETY & PANIC ATTACKS
Another classic example is anxiety, or worse, panic attacks. Anxiety is a response that our unconscious gives when feelings of fear, worry, or other tensions are not addressed directly. In other words, how can you face emotions that you cannot feel? You do not know why you've never learned to get in touch with those feelings, how could you when your emotions as a child were constantly invalidated?
When it’s about physiological and psychosomatic aspects, is everything reduced to the emotional sphere? Should we not bother with genetics or medicine? It is not just about psychology but also about biology? In childhood, we learn not only to talk, but also to love and walk. During this time, we begin to experience the full range of emotions, and these have chemicals that are reflected in the brain.
During childhood all your equipment is being developed and at this stage of your life you are building your dense neural network. Those same chemicals secreted in responses to different emotions could make you more sensitive to depression or anxiety.
THE ROLE OF EMOTIONS
The physiological role of emotions is now undeniable, and every day we discover more information, thanks to psychosomatics.
Becoming aware of the causes that induce the various disorders, makes it easier to work to restore any lack. You can break the wall that separates you from your emotions. You can start to welcome old and new emotions ... the road is long, it's true, but through awareness, you know which way to move. Emotions can greatly simplify your life. You can learn to identify your emotions by listening to them and building your identity based on what they suggest. To do this, do not be afraid to consult with a hypnotherapist, who will guide you to overcome these trigger points.
HEALING THE INNER CHILD
Hypnosis is the craft of the connection between mind (thoughts) and body (emotions). The method "healing the inner child" can be used when the client is in the hypnotic state, and it can help to release stuck emotions and unwanted feelings. The "Inner child work" is the process of contacting, understanding, embracing and healing your inner child. Your inner child represents your first original self that entered into this world; it contains your capacity to experience wonder, joy, innocence, sensitivity, and playfulness.
