Sexual Abuse – How Those Patterns Can Unconsciously Live On

Posted by:

Sexual abuse.  How the patterns can unconsciously live on . . . . .

I’ve just had one of those big, and what I refer to in PhotoReading terms, A-Ha Moments.  I was talking to a client about childhood sexual abuse and explaining that in the world according to Marilyn Devonish, not only is it possible to ‘survive‘ it and ‘get through‘ it, is is also possible to thrive and live life knowing what it is to inhabit a space of joy.

I’m pretty much always in a creative space and my brain knows that it has free reign to go off and play and come up with stuff.  Today however my intention was to be in the space of more deliberate creation, and really sit in the arms and lap of creativity.

From that space, whilst mulling over what the client had been putting themselves through for their entire lives up until this point, it was like the light bulb went on.

For many who have suffered sexual abuse, although the pattern doesn’t repeat itself in physical terms, it can show up in the way that people find themselves being treated, albeit unconsciously.  People can also be living seemingly full and happy lives, yet the pervasive pattern shows up again and again, but so subtly, so seemingly out of context, that it goes unnoticed yet has a hugely sabotaging and on some level soul destroying effect.

The scary thing was that it can be so unrelated to the act itself, that it can go undetected, although there are 2 separate lives at play.

“It can also go way beyond the context of sex or relationships.” 

For those that have been abused, their experience of day to day life can be that they, in many different contexts beyond relationships, are ‘taken advantage of’, somehow ‘used and abused‘, or find themselves in situations where there is ‘no respect‘ for them, their work, their voice, or their ideas, and where they, and therefore other people don’t ‘value‘ their work and will take it, use it, and then toss it aside.

These instances can been seemingly unrelated to any sexual abuse however they bear the hallmarks of what that little abused mind may have been thinking or experiencing at the time where they were still trying to make sense of the world and their place within it.

I can recall experiences that have been lived and described in the context of work, social life, family, money, friendships, etc, where this pattern is played out over and over again.

“Like homeopathy, the effect can be subtle yet powerful and all pervasive.”

For those that are still, albeit lightly, tethered to that abusive past, I would almost describe it like a ‘homeopathic imprint‘; Subtle, almost indistinguishable, yet powerful nonetheless.

What can you do to resolve this?

For this client I devised a series of Huna protocols, and ran some Access Consciousness Clearing Statements to loosen the grip of the old beliefs which we bought to the surface, and then did some Time Line Therapy work to go back to the time and point where those beliefs were formed and the unconscious decisions made about how they should allow others to treat them in this life, and what their contribution on this earth was worth.

If abuse has been your experience in the past, and you recognise any of those patterns showing up at work, with family, in your social life etc, it might definitely be worth delving into the soul to root out any blueprints or imprints that might be lurking around and hiding in the shadows.

Time to stand up, claim that worldly space, choose to have a different experience, and claim the value and worth that we all rightly have on this earth.
