Energetic trauma occurs any time we experience a shocking event that our energy system is unable to cope with. Untreated, it will remain in the energetic system, causing an imbalance and blockage in the area it influences. Thus, an adult person may still suffer from an energetic trauma at birth.
Such shocks do not have to be major life events - they can stem from something as simple as shutting the door on your fingers. As seen, they can be physical, intellectual, or emotional events.
They can manifest in personality traits, or in physical symptoms. For instance, a person who has been informed of a financial or legal setback may react by withdrawing emotionally, or by exhibiting physical symptoms such as blurry sight or inability to hear.
Energetic trauma sometimes makes itself known instantly after the event, and sometimes not until years later. Suddenly a person will exhibit psychosomatic conditions that have no apparent cause in his or her current life.
While few experience the negative Star of Bethlehem state as a chronic condition, some do. In this instance, the person will seem to be in a mental half-sleep. He will withdraw from everything he doesn't want to have feelings about - such as a soldier who has experienced the traumatic events of war and tries to avoid replaying those events in his mind.
Those experiencing the medical condition known as Post Traumatic Stress Disease are stuck in the negative Star of Bethlehem state.
Dr. Bach, when categorizing the Bach Flower Essences, called Star of Bethlehem the "Comforter and soother of pains and sorrows."
Star of Bethlehem awakens the personality and leads it back to its Higher Self. It re-establishes energetic links so that residues of energetic trauma can dissolve and allow the individual to regain energy, vitality, mental clarity, and inner strength.
None of us is immune from experiencing traumatic events. Since our energies respond to traumas both large and small, we are often in need of this Bach Flower Essence to clear the blockages and allow us to return to normal.
Many recommend giving Star of Bethlehem to newborns, so that the trauma of birth can be released rather than remaining to clog the energy pathways.
Patients with psychosomatic conditions that have proved "untreatable" by conventional methods often find relief when this Bach Flower Essence is added to their treatment regimen.
