Chaos! It’s a narrative that is pushed by those who don’t particularly take a liking to humans. It’s something that is promoted as being true and instigated by malevolent and psychopathic individuals and groups as a way to manipulate humans into generating more fear and anger, which are emotions they believe to be quite savory for their purposes.

- The Facts: Trauma can be seen as stress that has been trapped in the body. It can affect our daily life in many ways, and given our neuroplastic brain, trauma can create undesirable habits if gone unchecked.
- Reflect On: Do you feel consistent stress? Perhaps unexplainable low energy? Feeling as though you are on edge for no reason? This could be a sign of a body and nervous system stuck in a trauma trained pattern.
If you have loved your freedom or simply just expect it as a right, then know this, we are under a digital Pearl Harbor. The world is at stake and there is no room for failure, this is it. That being said, the next set of questions are many.
“What you most need will be found where you least want to look, but you have to look purposefully. If it chases you, then you’re the prey; if you confront it, you can transcend it.” – Jordan Peterson
There is a lot written about shadow and what it is. The direction is clear. Shadow is something we repress and hide from others, and in most cases, from ourselves. Where does it originate and what can we do to integrate or heal it?
One of the things I love about Carl Jung is the fact that he was a deep philosophical thinker who examined all aspects of the self when writing about the human experience.
