I am Felicity Muscat, founder of the Institute of Self Mastery. I’m a trained Mind resonance coach author of over 200 articles on Psychology, Mindset, Self Development and Business Coach, Sydney based life coach and working on Skype with clients in 21 countries, and Level 3 practitioner of the Mind Resonance Process.
My drive that propelled me to do what I do, is this simple understanding,
An extraordinary life is created by an ability to take action. Actions geared towards success, are only effortless when our minds belief system are aligned positively, to what we desire and are congruent to our real selves, not the Beliefs we took on to keep us safe.
If you find yourself trying to manage PTSD for a long period of time, it will not allow you to feel at peace.
Having suffered from it myself, after three experiences that broke my trust in life and the world, after 8 years I discovered the cause, treatment and a 100% effective solution to remove the mental triggers causing PTSD.
So how did I do this? I didn’t do this by interviewing successful individuals and then providing mindset advice with only knowledge, as frankly, that doesn’t stick.
If that was the case, everyone who has read a book and wanted to get results would have been adopt the author’s thinking and apply what they’ve learnt to resolve the issues in their own life. Right?
So if knowledge and learning, CBT, Psychotherapy and EMDR didn’t help me manage PTSD – where every time I was around people, I would panic and go in the fight and flight response – what did?
Let’s start with understanding what PTSD is.
How Fight or Flight Doesn’t Help You to Manage PTSD
Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) it is a state of mind, in which is labelled a disorder in which a individuals experiences after being exposed to a traumatic event
An individual who is suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, will experience symptoms of:
- Consistent recurring thoughts
- Recalling the events and what they should, shouldn’t have done differently
- Negative thoughts and feelings about life
- Dreams of similar themes to the original trauma
- Attempts to avoid people and or situations which may trigger similar experiences or feelings.
What I learnt, is that every experience in your mind that is being triggered is controlled by beliefs anchored in your memories. Each experience generates and triggers feelings that have been caused by the beliefs generated by original experience.
For example, abusive memories will install beliefs that, I am not safe, people are not safe, I am vulnerable, I am helpless, I am exposed.
These are the cause of the disconnection and your fight or flight response. But they can be removed, so that your mind can be restored back to its prior state.
Before I treat a client, their biggest concern is – if I don’t have the memory altering me of dangers, how will I know or how can I ensure that I am safe from it happening again?
The thing is this, when our perception is filtered by belief systems, you are more likely to be in danger.
In similar situations that should be less likely to be traumatising, with those beliefs in place the trauma does not happen from the event – it is created by the beliefs that are generating the feelings.
Therefore if the mind is in a calm state – responding from a place of making healthy decisions, not a fight or flight response state – you are more likely to make choices to remove yourself from the situation.
Let me explain. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is a condition in which the mind develops a set of reactions in order to cope with witnessing a traumatic experience. The mind then goes into a state of fight and flight in order to avoid similar experiences in order to keep a person safe.
This onset of reactions from the mind is brought about by witnessing or experiencing a terrifying life event. Common symptoms include nightmares, severe anxiety, flashbacks, and obsessive or uncontrollable thoughts.
These symptoms may occur immediately after the event, or they may not develop until years later. There are four types of PTSD, including intrusive memories, avoidance, adverse changes in mood and thought, and emotional reactions and physical changes.
You don’t need to just manage PTSD symptoms for the rest of your life.
