The Black Bag How Emotional Trauma Is Formed
Luke Michael Howard, clinical hypnotist and
owner of Lukenosis Hypnosis here today in
Paradise. I want to share with you today the
concept of the black bag. And no, don't worry,
I'm not going to do a David Copperfield or David
Blaine magic trick of you, although I'm about
to share with you, is in some ways very
magic with a K.
There's three forms of magic in the world. There's
wand magic, there's hand magic, and there's mind magic.
I'm going to share you some mind magic or some
mind magic principles today. Again, not performance
magic, but real magic. With a K, so from the moment
we're born, well, actually, from the moment
we're conceived to the moment we die, events
start to happen. Perhaps unpleasant events,
perhaps what some people call trauma. Some
negative emotions. Anger, fear, anxiety,
shame, guilt, get accumulated. Negative emotions,
negative beliefs. I'm not good enough. I'll
never make enough money. I'll never lose that
amount of weight. I'll never attract the ideal
soul mate in my life. And all these things get
put in a black bag inside, all right, one after
the other after the other, and it gets compressed overtime.
And as we start to get older, the black bag starts
to pop up and we start to feel this thing called anxiety.
We start to feel this thing called sadness.
We start to have the belief I'm not good enough
and it starts to really interfere in our life
and what's what some people, I guess in psychology
we call repressed emotions, repressed events
that come up and they come up. And the reason
that our higher self and our unconscious mind,
some people call the subconscious would put
it into this black bag is a way of protecting us.
cause when that seed is first planted of the
sadness, the first event would always be the most significant.
The first event of I'm not good enough the belief,
For example, the first time it happens, it might
not be the most significant event when we look
back, but it accumulates over time and it's
we probably don't have the resilience to deal
with it at that particular time. So basically
the high self comes in to protect us, puts it
into the black bag and pushes it down.
And as we get older in life, these events start
to pop up. The black bag starts to pop up. An example
of this is you might be going about your shopping
or going about your Thursday afternoon and
suddenly and nowhere, for no particular reason,
a bunch of anxiety drops on you and there's no
reason for it coming. Or you just get really
sad and nothing in your objective world has happened.
Or suddenly this belief you're not good enough
comes up and nothing. I seemingly happened
to trigger this in the moment. You're like,
how comes? I was just alright a minute ago and
now I'm feeling like this. It's the black bag
coming up. Really. A black bag is our Higher Self
saying, hey, do you want to deal with this? So
I protected you for the years because you didn't
have the equipment to deal with this stuff.
So I put it in the black bag and I kept it inside
so you could function and you could get by. Now
you do have the skills or the ability. To get help.
To let go of these things. Sadness, Fear, Anxiety,
pain, Shame. Guilt, Chronic pains. Limited decisions.
I'm not good enough. I'll never make enough money.
I'll never get my ideal soul mate. I'll never
get that car. I'll never be able to go on that vacation.
I'll never have enough money. I'll never lose
enough weight. I'll never be pretty enough.
I'll never be handsome enough. And it starts
to come up. And sometimes you might be like,
oh, I thought I dealt with that. You didn't deal with it.
Your higher self was trying to protect you at
that stage of your life and pushed it down. But
the reason it comes up later in life is your higher
self saying, hey, now's the time to deal with this.
Now's the time to go into that black bag, to let
go of your fear, your pain, your shame, your
guilt, your anger, your limited decisions,
your negative beliefs. Now's the time. So they
come up and they come up really, really strongly.
And they come out of that black bag when the bravest
things that you can do is find a way to heal yourself,
to let those things go in the black bag. Because
they're only coming up because now is the time
for you to deal with them. And if you don't feel
that you can do that, good job is to help find somebody.
When a coach find someone like me, find a change
worker, that can help you go through the process
of letting those things go from your black bag.
So one day that black bag can be empty. You can
just let it go and that paradise can start to
come inside your head and inside your body,
even if you're in a place that's a concrete jungle.
