For some traumas you may have to go deeper in your subconscious. In these times many childhood memories may surface in your dreams and meditations. Your subconscious may use places and people of that period. The garden of your grandparents or the playground that you used to gather with your friends.
The dream may start at this place so to remember and to feel the happiness and the love you had in this specific place and period. Then deeper in the dream you may see darkness or feel cold as the trauma will come in form. This is the present you get, because you start to see the trauma that will be healed. Don’t be afraid from this process. In the end you will receive a gift from your inner child, from the child-self that experienced the trauma. This gift is love and you are healed.
