Your re-occurring mental distress may be debilitating and weakening the natural function of the human body’s daily activities. Experiences like past traumatic memories are more common than what you may think, where it can be difficult to focus on important tasks, periods in contentment, or even just enjoying life itself.
Well, I am here to inform you that the brain is hard-wired in such a way for you to learn quickly from these bad experiences but not so much as from the good ones. Hello guys. My name is ShawNee Janelle. I am a Certified Holistic Health Practitioner and Health and Wellness, Consultant.
As Einstein did remind his peers in western science that, time and space are modes by what we think, and not conditions in which we live.”
According to recent neuroimaging studies, the process of encoding and recalling negative memories involves the parts of the brain that processes emotions. We will be discussing how the brain operates through its basic functions, so that you can have power over traumatic memories and unwelcoming experiences through your filtering emotions. It will be a three-part series, and in Part 2, we’ll explore the brain’s process of fear.
So, what do you think, is it possible to have power over traumatic memories? Let me know what you guys think down in the comments. I also just wanted to say that I am aware of the extreme circumstances when it comes to traumatic experiences. This blog was created for the individuals who have interest in healing their past traumatic memories.

Let’s Begin with the final Affirmation for Week 30!
“I CAN BLOSSOM WHEREVER I’M PLANTED”
I may have spent a large portion of my life looking for the right individual, time, or space to actually begin my life and experience what it means to be happy. Searching for the perfect tone in life is associated with my childhood belief that the sexual abuse would end if people could simply notice my hurt.
In this depiction, I believed that all the neglect, horror, and pain would vanish leaving me with final contentment by feeling cared for and seemingly “noticed”. As I continue in my healing, I have gradually grasped the realization that there is no perfect person or place that will subside all my worries.
I will, however, honor the resourceful and optimistic child in me that created this reality of refuge of hope. Her image helped me to survive the awful reality of abuse. With more awareness today, I can end my trek. I’ve discovered that in my life, I need only to seek inside to begin to find peace and gratitude I wholeheartedly deserve and have sought after.
Being exactly where I am and why I am at any given moment is not a simple task, but one that eventually brings balance to prosperity and healing. As I become more enlightened through the love and acceptance for myself, I will find that in fact to bloom where I’m planted aligns the pathway for self-discovery.
I no longer need to seek out geographical cures. I no longer need to wait one more minute or day. I will begin my process of healing here in the now. I can put my roots down in the soil of my own being.
Visualize the Affirmation, see it in color or as shaded black and white, however, the mind perceives it, allow for the current response to form naturally. Listen to yourself without judgment and begin to frequently journal this process as you transition the mind to higher knowledge of yourself.
Your Reality in Balance begins at the very moment when work is placed forth by your intent to grow and change for the betterment of self, aiding in the improvement of mankind! Be well and heal in peace
What is Love?
“There is love of children, love of self, love of God, love of a partner. All of them have a different shape, but all of dem is the same in the end.
It’s about sensitivity, it’s about passion. It’s about unconditional giving of self to another person. And there’s love of humanity- That’s the love that is needed most; Love of humanity. But in everything in all of that love, there is a soul.
It’s like when you take some eggs and break them, and you take the shells and mix them up, trying to find the perfect match. When you find the perfect match, that comparity results in passion, results in unconditional giving of self.”
-The Carters 2018
There is an Afrikan proverb that states; The hand that rocks the cradle, rules the nation. The level of emotional maturity in the hand that rocks the cradle determines the fate of the nation. A people on a sojourn through time are somewhat like a ship on the ocean. If many people aboard the ship have extensive knowledge of the sea and navigation, that ship will have an excellent chance of reaching the desired destination. On the other hand, when the people aboard the ship lack knowledge of the sea and navigation, more than likely the ship-should the sea become at all rough-will flounder into destruction (Welsing 2004).
