“I’ve always been close to my mom, but I never knew how close.” Before birth we are our mother. We’re connected physically, physiologically, emotionally, and subconsciously. It’s not uncommon to absorb our mother’s subconscious emotional charges while we’re in the womb, especially if the contributing events are traumatic.
Here’s a hypothetical scenario I’ve seen repeated is a variety of situations. Since most of us have had spouses and lovers at least once or twice in our lives, I’ll use the context of an intimate relationship, something we can all relate to.
A young woman came to see me for recurring anxiety attacks that were happening at an accelerated and stronger rate. They exploded into her life whenever she crossed some ambiguous line of going from a romantic to a committed relationship. It had ruined several previous relationships.
“Before birth we are our mother. We’re connected physically, physiologically, emotionally, and subconsciously.”
She was now involved with a man she genuinely loved. The attacks were becoming so frequent and so strong that she could barely function. She was desperate. This was in the early days of my practice, back when I took more of an analytical approach to subconscious healing.
Over the course of a few sessions, we probed into the events of her childhood and had some initial satisfactory success. However, the anxiety attacks still came back, albeit with less frequency and intensity. I couldn’t put my finger on what was behind this. We just didn’t seem to be getting to the core of the problem.
In conversation, I asked about her parents, and that led to the topic of their divorce. The split happened rather abruptly, and it was rather grueling on her mother. I asked her how old she was when her parents broke up, to which she replied, “Oh, I wasn’t born yet. I was still in my mom’s tummy.” Flash! Maybe she picked up emotional charges from her mom while she was pregnant. By the next session, her anxiety attacks gone… permanently.
