For example, our religious authorities might shame us for our inherent sexuality. All six types of forces set off subtle and physical stress responses within our system. As well, many forces carry subtle energies. If these slippery little "creatures" remain in our system, they can cause havoc long after we recover from the obvious stressor. For instance, imagine that when young, your client was constantly yelled at by his father. Perhaps mental health therapy has assisted the client with working through the beliefs caused by the verbal abuse, yet this client exhibits a lot of bodily pain. From a subtle energy point of view, the client was inflicted with negatively charged verbal force. Most likely, subtle energies of rage and shaming, originating in the father, were also deposited in your client's body. 90 m a s s a g e & b o d y w o r k j u l y / a u g u s t 2 0 2 0 technique ENERGY WORK Unhealed Trauma and Energy Healing Restoring the Original Energetic Signature By Cyndi Dale potential. The missing piece is energy— or, more specifically, subtle energy. In this article, I am going to portray the involvement of subtle energy in trauma. I will then highlight one of the main concepts that explains the role of subtle energies in the creation of—and failure to recover from—a traumatic stress. This is the idea of an "original energetic signature." Finally, I will outline several energetic techniques you can employ to help alleviate a client's traumatic conditions. Most of this information is culled from my upcoming book Energy Healing for Trauma, Stress & Chronic Illness, to be released July 2020. 2 SUBTLE ENERGY IN TRAUMA During a stressful event, we are impacted by forces. Forces are fields of energy created by six differing causal agents or activities. The six vital forces are environmental, physical, psychological, modern, missing, and spiritual. Environmental forces are generated by natural events, such as hurricanes and tsunamis. The worldwide coronavirus pandemic constitutes an environmental force. Physical forces are related to physically generated actions, such as a car accident or fall. Psychological forces include verbal or emotional abuse. Modern forces include digital exploitation, such as catfishing, or digital overwhelm. Missing forces occur when we are supposed to be given what we need and aren't. For instance, we should expect unconditional love from a parent. When it is not provided, we might attempt to fill the empty space with an addictive substance or harmful behavior. Spiritual forces are linked to religion or negative spiritual energies. Trauma: it is probably one of the main reasons clients work with you. I have been a professional intuitive and energy healer for more than 30 years. During that time, I have assisted over 65,000 people. Presenting issues have included physical pain, emotional distress, relationship woes, financial lack, illness, everyday stress, addictions, and more. In this extensive list of challenges, chronic disease has ramped up in recent years. You probably see the same in your practice. Six in 10 adults in the United States have a chronic disease; four in 10 of those adults have more than one. 1 No matter the presenting symptoms, however, the root of most tribulations often reduces to a single cause—unhealed trauma. Trauma is the result of a stressor so overwhelming we fail to completely recover. There are many approaches to trauma, including a variety of physical and psychological therapies. We only have to look around us—and within our client base—to note the current methods are not adequate. Now that the coronavirus is pandemic, our clients are pushed to the limit. (And so are we!) It is becoming increasingly difficult to find relief. Our wellness model is obviously deficient. You know it. I know it. Our clients know it. Something is keeping them from feeling the way they want to feel—the way they know, deep in their hearts, they could feel—whether happy or comfortable, safe or loved, whole or free. Something is keeping them from healing to their optimal
