[quote=“Judge Dredd, post:1, topic:2892”]After 2 minutes of nothing, I came back.
Anyone ever hear of similar cases? If so, do you believe this can have some kind of traumatic effect?[/quote]
I was really ill when I was tiny and along my journey of learning healing methods, I had various healers and psychics work on me who kept seeing the same image, and when I checked with family that was their over-riding memory of that time - but consciously, I didn’t remember anything about it at all.
It seems to have been kind of imprinted on my energy body and once I did some serious work around it, I actually realised that it lay behind my entire personality in terms of my choices, values, beliefs about life, and also my drive to explore the occult, and someone did a detailed astrological chart for me and even saw traces of it there, so it wasn’t just a mishap that affected me but was actually some kind of thing I had to go through to become who I did.
I kind of got pushed really hard into darkness and unrelenting pain, and from my rejection of that decided the world as it stood wasn’t good enough, if it could do that to me, so I was on a lifetime mission to find better worlds and along the way to make things go the way I wanted them to, because I’d been burned badly by powerlessness at such a formative age.
A lot of leading theories in psychology are based on the idea that formative experiences happen before the age of speech and that hings we can’t consciously remember can affects us in really deep ways - a lot of attachment theory, and of course Freud’s stuff all emphasise the importance of early years, including babyhood.
It’s really weird you bring this up now because it’s also linked to what I’m doing creating a daemonic entity, because that trauma (for want of a better word) that haunted my life for years is going to be the “seed” I bring to her, so yes I think something like that can be significant, and buried underneath things.
Just taking a guess but, one of your earliest strong memories was “there’s no good air - help - I’m dying” - and you like to smoke pot?! Seems like a POSSIBLE link to me, is all I’m saying, not justification to keep on with it but maybe why it appealed to you.
If you look at the primary substance addictions they all soothe or stimulate nerves involved with basic life processes as they deliver the hit - breath, consumption of food or liquids, and killing pain, which are the three primary things a baby and very young child perceives as their entire universe.
I’ve seen this with enough people to think there might be a link sometimes, and that’s part of how people choose what to become addicted to.
JMO there, not making a statement of How Things Are or anything, because obviously there’s far more to addiction than mum missing a feed or colic, but I think the psychic scars of those primal needs and the total terror at them not being met runs pretty deep in some people.
