A clearing in the woods. Sun on a piece of moss. You kneel in front of it, stroke the palms over velvety, slightly damp green and smell a wonderful scent. You are five, six or seven years old, at most eleven, and accompanied by your parents. You could stay forever in this beautiful place, but your parents want to continue. So you decide to never forget this place with its fragrance. But there are other, also intense moments, and a few days later you do not even think about the clearing in the forest.
Years later and long grown up, maybe on a hike, maybe alone, maybe in company, you find yourself back in a clearing. Not the one from then. But pretty nice. Again sun on lush green moss, again this fine sweet-sour smell. Almost automatically you kneel down again. And suddenly you are in another time and space. You hear the voices of your parents, hear them talking, know why they were in a hurry, feel their tension hiding behind parental care and mindfulness. And it may be that this very beautiful memory gets a less beautiful connotation and leads to a hard and very adult cognition.
Through similarity memory is taken from oblivion and reactivated. Similar smells, similar tastes, similar sounds, similar tactile sensations, less through corresponding visual perceptions and analogous thoughts. That’s why thinking about the past is so difficult. As hard as you may try – memories couldn’t be forced mentally. But if there is a corresponding smell or taste – the feeling of yesteryears is again alive and present.
This also applies to less pleasant memories. Sometimes you find yourself stuck in a corner of your actual life, smelling something, hearing something, feeling something – and suddenly you realize that you were in a similar predicament before. This offers the opportunity to learn something from it at the moment and to grow biographically so that less pleasant memories can be regarded as valuable.
And then there are the experiences that you probably can not remember. Mental injuries concealed in the biographical depth, locked in oblivion, because too painful for the active memory. These are the traumas a person may have experienced – and must forget as soon as possible, since memorising it is unbearable. But real forgetting does not exist. Whatever is experienced remains preserved and biographically effective. In the case of traumatisation, often as hidden efficacy. Not infrequently perceptible as subliminal impulses that lead to strange, comparatively unhealthy actions. Self-destructive behavior, for example, in the form of mental dependencies or substance-related addictions, for example – but the consequences of traumatization on behavior are as individual as people with their respective inhibitions and needs are unique.
The biography of a person cannot be changed in retrospect. An injury can therefore not be undone. However, the consequences can be changed very effectively. And the method of trauma detachment and redemption developed by me makes this possible. After approximately ten years of practice the method will be refined and systematized.
