Difficulties such as anxiety or depression have various causes. Personality difficulties such as passivity or negative beliefs such as telling yourself or others “it’s all my fault” have causes from the past. The same is true for many physical difficulties.
Discovering earlier experiences can be the causation for present complaints and conditions. Past events can be forgotten, ignored or repressed. It is important to reactivate positive feelings, positive experiences and talents.
Our past experiences can contain emotional wounds that never healed or triggered persistent subconscious beliefs. This past programming only changes when we understand how they were caused and why we have held on to them. Finding and reliving undigested experiences unlocks emotions and bring insight into how present complaints have originated in these experiences.
Even a 55 year old man can regress through hypnosis to the first year of life:
But some individuals have even experienced regression to birth or a prenatal time in the womb.
A prenatal infant handles the intensity of emotions and conditions making psychological modifications during changes in the womb. This allows adaptation to various energies within the womb. These adjustments characterize emotional patterns and evolution of personality after birth and may establish a way of responding to the dilemmas of life.
As an individual develops from infant into toddler, child into teenager and then into an adult, a more intricate personality evolves, that responds to life’s experiences and creates reactions. Emotions that were unable to be incorporated develop into reference points for future behaviors. As long as these established patterns remain unquestioned and not given value, they will have an influence on an individual as an adult.
There are five significant patterns of prenatal adaption:
1) Becoming autonomous:
This is an adaption made by the prenatal infant who does not receive nurturing from the mother and is absent of feelings of being protected by her. Accountability for the self is taken sometimes to the extent of becoming aggressively self-reliant. This infant is without the feeling of living in a supportive, caring world attempting to confront life through his or her own efforts.
2) Feeling obligation for parents:
Prenatal infants, propelled by empathy, acclimate by feeling obligated to their distraught parent and make it in their responsibility to help the parent. They can also be motivated by a survival instinct, since the infant or child needs the parents to survive. There may be a feeling of guilt for burdening the parents.
Children may assist the parents by consoling them emotionally and trying to decrease their discomforts. Others, calmly, become the “good’ child; coping well and bypassing any trouble. This pattern is transferred from childhood into adulthood where these individuals desire others, often a partner, to rescue them.
3) Retreating from Life into Refuge:
Some infants choose the opposite solution and move away from their parents and live a life of a withdrawal, detaching themselves from the emotional situations shared by the family. Even though they are able to bypass painful emotions, they separate themselves from the specific emotions of love and belonging. These infants become adults who live within their minds not united with the processes of their body, such as love, sexuality, or ingenuity. Emotions and feelings are threatening and usually there is not an awareness of this occurring as they exist deprived of loving, nurturing relationships.
4) Selective Response:
Another response is composed of dismissing the specific cause of the infant’s pain. The infant may spur the unloving mother and create an emotional tie with the father. As time proceeds, this generalizes into the distrust of all females and separation from them.
5) Compensatory Response:
When circumstances in the womb are troublesome, the infant may adapt by creating a compensatory response, deciding to preserve gregarious characteristic instead of becoming introverted. One who adapts this way often excels at producing good grades in school; and in the future seek identification for professional positions. A vulnerable self-esteem lies below a drive for achievement, the feeling of being valued, because it’s a condition of success.
There are various types of compensation. If the infant is not a desired gender, it may even offset developing a personality that the parents wanted in the child.
