Do You Suffer From Second Hand PTSD?

Do you suffer from PTSD due to a loved one being afflicted with Trauma & PTSD?

 Do you suffer almost as much as the person you love who suffers from PTSD? Do you have second hand PTSD?

In many cases, the person who suffers from a traumatic experience or PTSD affects those they love tremendously with their PTSD symptoms. A spouse or children especially can be intoxicated by the person who is suffering so much so that they take on the pain and symptoms or the responsibility of healing that person so much that they no longer have their own identity.

I can speak from experience in this case. My father has suffered with severe PTSD from multiple tours in Vietnam and growing up with physical abuse & severe verbal abuse. (Let me begin by saying this post is not to make light in any way of those suffering PTSD first hand from trauma. And, it is not to take away from their experience of pain. Nor is it in any way intended to put a negative light or place blame on certain people or those who experience trauma or react in certain ways due to the trauma they have experienced. This post may upset family members and that is one reason I have never shared this before. However, I know others are suffering with similar issues and only intend to help others fully heal.)

I have not shared my experience of growing up with really anyone. However, in an attempt to help others heal, I will share some details. My father served multiple tours in Vietnam. He was in the deepest part of Agent Orange and all that and like many others who experience war first hand, he suffered much trauma. He suffered tremendous toxicity due to the Agent Orange and did not find out until a few years ago and even more recently the real health threat this poses. My father also suffers second hand PTSD that was passed down from his father who ran his home like a military as well and was a physically and emotionally harsh environment (abuse) – which brings certain types of trauma to a family as I’ve come to know & understand.

For most of my father’s life that I have known him (as far back as I can consciously remember), our family has never been what I used to consider normal. We have always been sort of outcast by others as I was growing up. We moved around a lot, and I mean A LOT. I can remember moving pretty much every year if not more often, and I rarely stayed in one school, whether it was due to moving or because I had to change schools because I was getting older and had to change schools. I think one time, I counted a different school for every year of school 1-12th grade. I can remember not always beginning the school year with the other kids, which is difficult on finding and keeping friendships as they already had their groups or cliques and I was the new kid. I can remember living in areas that I really didn’t feel the safest. I know my parents tried, but sometimes when there is lack of money, you have to find a house in different parts of town. I can remember living with relatives for short periods, which is most uncomfortable as a child as you can’t play normally as you have to watch everything you do. I can remember class mates always seemed to have nicer clothes and other things. We shopped at second hand shops and I got excited to receive hand me downs to have newer clothes, and I didn’t understand when it seemed that everyone else had brand new. We always had a car that seemed on the verge of breaking down and old. And, a large part of my memories revolved around my dad’s health. As kids, we worried if our dad was going to die. He seemed to suffer so much physically and emotionally. He could not eat anything, I mean anything. His diet was so restricted. He could eat only a couple things that would not cause him to be in severe pain, literally a couple things. And, if he ate the wrong thing, anything other than the couple OK items, he would suffer severe chest pain and esophageal pain and seemed to be constantly “throwing up”. Certain types of physical exertion or exercise would cause or contribute to this severe pain not just for short periods, but for weeks. We thought he was having heart attacks or something and did not know what was causing the pain or if he was going to live. We feared that he would die, on a regular basis. I can remember my dad taking me for a bike ride one day, and he had to stop, because of the pain in his chest. I was so scared that he was dying. We somehow got home. I don’t even remember how now.

He was also mad a lot and even though fortunately he didn’t beat us, he had a temper and used the belt a few times. Cursing and rage in his face, eyes and teeth are the things I can remember most even as an adult when he gets angry for sometimes no “real” reason. There was one incident in particular, that we had a disagreement and I thought he might actually strike me and I might not get up. The rage was so present in his eyes and face, I was crying hysterically and through the tears, I just kept saying, “I want to be happy”.

This particular incident significantly impacted me for a long time. I actually felt like I might die that day at my fathers’ hand. I went into a deep depression and did not understand why. I felt like I was not sure why I was alive. I lost all faith and trust in the World at large. Keep in mind I was an adult when this happened. After growing up in a certain environment and experiencing personal trauma outside of that, it was just too much and was a severe trigger that resulted in an after shock.

For my dad his life has been clouded with an overall negative energy and attitude no matter how hard he tries to be happy or positive.

And, he has never had a sense of self confidence or self esteem as I look back as well. He is always cutting himself down before others have a chance. He always took small jobs and never charged what he was worth. He always lowered his price and was taken advantage of in many cases, as he was self employed most of the time, as he could not work for someone else due to the PTSD symptoms. So, our family was always severely short of money even though my mother worked, too. There were periods that he could not work at all. He was in a state of depression or pain and just could not bring himself to go to work or physically could not work due to the pain.

And, he has suffered severe nightmares all these years as well.

This has progressed even into my adulthood as he ages.

We have all walked on eggshells to avoid upsetting him so he either doesn’t get angry and upset which also contributes to the physical symptoms worsening. And, we don’t want him to go into a deep depression again (which he was hospitalized for when I was a teen at one point, and the medications made it worse at the time I think.) And, we don’t want to deal with the angry episodes and bad attitude, so we are all so careful what we say and do around him. And, in some ways, have all probably felt that what we needed always came second, because we had to take care of him or his symptoms were worse and our “trivial” issues didn’t compare to what he was living with physically or emotionally. This creates it’s own form of trauma even though I know it has never been intended purposefully.

This is the original reason for my search for a true healing method along with wanting my own health issues addressed and truly healed not just covered up.

Our family has taken on his PTSD second hand. We have all suffered not only watching and experiencing his emotional and physical pain, but, taken on certain aspects from him. And, “traits” have affected our life and families as well. We have all felt in some way that we have to heal him and baby him and that our own needs are not important. I have taken on that responsibility in the most drastic fashion personally for many years, again, one reason I found Quantum Techniques and now practice it remotely to help others anywhere. It has become one of my biggest passions today. I don’t believe we were meant to suffer through life without ever healing and feeling joy. I believe we are meant to be healthy and feel joyful for life!

How Can I Help You Heal from PTSD and Second Hand PTSD?

I have found in my own life personally, that Quantum Techniques has the ability to help those suffering with PTSD and second hand PTSD symptoms with amazing results and that is why I use it for myself and to help others!

QT is beneficial for so many things physically, emotionally and spiritually. It is one of the best methods to help someone that is available remotely in the World.

It can help clear a emotional upset from a single specific event in one or 2 sessions resulting in more inner peace and can be life altering.

Working with long term post traumatic emotions can take multiple coaching sessions, however, in my experience, it is the quickest method of helping someone self heal from even long term upsets compared to traditional methods that could take years and tens of thousands of dollars.

From my personal experience and helping others, you actually notice a difference quicker than any method I have found in over 15 years study and practice.

In many cases, layers can be removed very quickly or even all at once depending on what your body is ready to release. Your body is meant to self heal, and all healing is self healing, and your body/mind wants to heal as quickly as possible. It is always guiding you toward healing and inner peace. However, keep in mind that everything is energy, including thoughts, emotions, traumatic upsets and physical maladies. So, when you release a negative emotion, it is energy that is being released from your body. Your body and mind, still has to adjust to the new energy, a lighter energy. So, your body knows what it’s toxic load is, and will allow healing at the pace that is best for you without causing toxic overload and strong energy healing side effects.

The results far out-weigh anything I have seen or found. QT has the ability to clear years of suffering in a much faster manner than traditional methods. Through bio-energetic muscle testing deep layers and truth can be brought to light for effective self healing. And, one of the benefits of QT is you don’t have to relive the trauma or even know what the actual trauma is for self healing. Using advanced bio-energetic muscle testing identifies what your body considers the most valuable thing to self heal first, second, and down the line. This is beneficial in cases where the emotional upset or traumatic experience was so severe that our body & mind has blocked the memory as it is too painful. This can be the case in childhood abuse, sexual abuse or other abuse, or any other severe traumatic experience (which I have also experienced.)

There are many types of trauma. I think most people think trauma is a rape, abuse, being  accosted or divorce or something similar. However, trauma comes in many forms depending on how the individual receives it and holds it based on their life experiences. It can be very traumatic as stated above, suffering second hand PTSD, in many ways. You may be responsible for taking care of the person who suffers with trauma & PTSD, you may feel responsible for their healing, you don’t get to take care of yourself so you lack attention you may need to feel loved and cared for and you may feel guilt for wanting and needing love, affection, attention and someone to take care of you for a change. Trauma could be any of the above, or a child hearing parents repeatedly fighting while they are in bed at night, a parents divorce, death of a loved one or anyone you know or even don’t know, death of a loved family pet, seeing someone else abused, emotional abuse through another’s words, even having someone of authority or that you look up to and respect speaking to you in a certain manner that belittles you. A trauma could also be a medical procedure or a procedure going bad that causes distress and trauma emotionally & physically, watching a loved on go through a serious or chronic illness for years, chronic or serious illness in yourself, or even the birth of another sibling or even watching the evening news when something horrific happens. There are limitless forms of trauma that many may not consider trauma, however to the person receiving it, it may be very traumatic. In some cases, you may not even realize it as a trauma for you, however, your body or emotional system may have received it as a trauma and may be holding it inside for healing and can even manifest in physical symptoms to get your attention for healing.

How I Healed My Sexual Assault Trauma with PTSD using Energy Healing

I have been studying and using energy healing for about 15 years. I use it in my coaching to help others effectively release emotional upset & self heal emotional and physical issues.

I thought I would share a little about me and how I became an energy healer using some of the most comprehensive methods of energy healing available in the World today.

I am not what you would call a “realist”, the word “spiritualist” comes to mind, although I giggle, because I am not sure that is a real word (I have been known for making up words all my life). I don’t look at the World and take it at face value. I feel something deeper, and have always experienced the World by “feeling” it rather than observing.

I have always felt for people and animals and all of life differently than those I was surrounded by and was told I was “too sensitive”. So, I took that as a bad thing, and tried to be harder, which is against my general nature and did not work for me. I have also always been highly intuitive and as far back as I can recall I have been a healer of hearts, always helping others feel better wherever I went. I can’t count how many times others told me they just felt better being around me. But, in many cases I would take in others energy & trauma in order to help them heal and feel better, and it was toxic for me (which I didn’t realize until I was an adult). Also, it doesn’t work. It is not anyone else’s responsibility to “take on” someone else’s issues in order to heal them nor can you.

I experienced sexual trauma as a child around age 6-8, and repeatedly again as a teen and to compact it, I was also raised in a home with a parent who suffered with severe PTSD, deep depression, mood swings, many negative emotions, self sabotage, rage & anger issues along with serious health (2nd hand PTSD). We moved frequently and barely had enough money for necessities most of the time.

Even though it was natural for me to be a healer, I didn’t realize that it was necessary & healthier for me to heal and become stronger so that I could help others in the best way possible and not receive their emotional wounds. I would have to address my own heavy traumas that needed healing and were being ignored. I feel that experiencing some of the things that have occurred in my life, have allowed me to be an even better coach/healer that I might have been otherwise, with Unconditional Love and acceptance. My heart is open to helping others heal without judgement and my intention is to help others feel safe while working together.

I actually found energy healing while I was powerfully asking the Universe for something that I could use to help someone in my life that is very close to me, in order to help them find inner peace and recover from severe PTSD and depression and also lead them to heal from some severe health issues. I also ended up finding that I, too needed it much more than I realized or was willing to acknowledge.”

Eventually, I recognized that if you ignore your own healing long enough, it keeps rearing its ugly head and in time, you just can’t ignore what is going on, physical symptoms, deep depression, self worth issues, bouts of crying days at a time, hiding so no one would see or know what I was experiencing, along with severe self loathing and self destructive patterns that follow you, wondering why you are even here. At some point, you have to address the demons and begin your own self healing.

For me, it was a bit of a scary process when I began to shine a light on the things that broke me down, the things I allowed to torture me for so long. I would have to share these things that I never talked about before with some of the people closest to me in my life. What if they didn’t understand? What if they looked at me differently? What if they walked away when they found out my story and what I experienced that made me who I am? What if they responded un-caring and disregarded my feelings and fears?

I also recognized that it was scary to see myself as healed and self empowered, letting go of being a “victim”. Who would I be without all this baggage and fear? I had been this way most of my life. Some of my old patters actually benefited me in some way up til that point. Who would I be without all this self hatred weighing me down? Could I actually be happy, is there such a thing? Could I actually heal for real? What would others think if I was not who they were used to me being? Am I strong enough to speak up for myself instead of cowering out of fear of “upsetting the apple cart”? At different times over the years, when I actually tried to stand up for myself and speak my truth, I have been called a bitch, because I was not giving in to what made others happy but instead made me scared, unsafe, feel terror, miserable or really uncomfortable. I didn’t know how to say “no” to others or even myself. I found through my own self healing that I believed deep down that I deserved to suffer and deserved to be sick.

It was all too dark, and I pleaded with the Universe for healing. It was either I did the work, or I wouldn’t want to live like this any longer. The pain was not worth it.

Using the Comprehensive Energy Healing that I learned, I began peeling back layers of trauma and releasing sorrow, guilt, shame, self hatred, terror and fear. I began to address the beliefs that I was unworthy, I deserved to suffer, that others are unsafe and harm me. I began to identify and release unconscious intentions to stay sick. I began healing specific trauma fields. And, I constantly worked at shifting my mindset.

I began to feel the deep depression and despair beginning to lift. I began to feel hope. I began actually liking “me” and who I was despite what others might think about me. I began taking care of myself differently, realizing that I am worth taking time for. I am worth honoring “me”. I began peeling back the layers of lies that were covering up my authentic self. In order to keep peace and avoid confrontation, I had been who everyone else expected me to be or wanted me to be in many cases.

At first, it was difficult to be different around certain people who were close to me, as I began behaving differently, with more self awareness and responding differently to their behavior. I was met with opposition sometimes and found that I had to explain my behavior to them when I didn’t react the way they wanted me to, like I might have in the past. Deep inside, I didn’t feel that I owed anyone an explanation. I had the right to be stronger, to heal, to be authentic and not just allow others to harm me. I found that I had many triggers.

Through my never ending journey into my authentic self, I began having moments of self appreciation and Joy. Those moments lasted longer and I began desiring more and more happiness. It was addicting actually! I realized this was better than all the suffering. I began to realize that it was OK to heal. I began realizing that I was worth it. I began realizing that if others didn’t understand or walked away, I would be OK, because I deserve to live happy. I now choose to have people close to me that support my healing and Optimal Health and I deserve that.

I also experienced what you would call “Universal Love” for everyone and everything which has completely shifted my experience in the World and I experience more. I have experienced instant “miracle” healing which has allowed me to recognize that literally anything is possible without exception. I don’t view the World or Universe at “face value”. I recognize there is something much deeper that our eyes don’t see. Much more than we allow our physical senses to experience in this physical realm we call Earth.

It is my intention to help others in their own self healing journey through coaching and sharing this Comprehensive Energy Healing that has been so powerful in my life and share other methods I have picked up along the way to find more inner peace and experience deeper spiritual connection and Universal Love.

Weight Loss with Energy Healing Quantum Techniques

Quantum Techniques Energy Healing is used effectively for weight loss – even by accident.

Hi Beautiful Souls!

My name is Yvette and I am an energy medicine practitioner and use energy healing in my life on a daily basis in order to live with Joy in my heart and more inner peace than I ever thought possible.

Many years ago, I discovered Quantum Techniques after studying many methods of energy healing and becoming certified in quite a few of those methods. I used the other methods and didn’t find the powerful benefit they all promised and continued searching for something better, more efficient that actually resulted in healing emotionally, physically and spiritually.

I called for my first session to deal with an issue on my leg that wouldn’t heal. Nothing I used seemed to make a significant impact on my healing as normal. I used tea tree oil, colloidal silver and other things including over the counter triple antibiotic as a last resort and it just would not heal and even got worse.

A welcomed side effect after my first session of Quantum Techniques is weight loss. When I had my initial remote energy healing session with Dr. Stephen Daniel (founder of Quantum Techniques) I lost about 16 pounds without even trying in just a couple months time. The only thing I did differently was remove items that my body identified as energetic toxins for me personally.

YUP! That’s me on the right – before and after!

My mom has done the same thing, and she has lost 32 pounds in about 5 months by only discontinuing the consumption of energetic toxins that her body identified for her personally. And, she added a couple individual vitamins that were recommended that her body was lacking for other health issues that tested good for her.

What is an energetic toxin? 

An energetic toxin, is an item that your body identifies as (in simple terms) a poison or toxin on an energetic frequency level that can be tested with advanced remote muscle testing. Energy toxins can cause your body’s energy system to be disrupted and reversed instead of flowing clockwise as it should (the spin). If your energy system is flowing backward (“reversed” – you will hear this term when working with your QT practitioner) your body can not heal.

In a typical day, our body can be in a state of reversal many times, however it normally corrects itself. Your energy can become reversed by thinking negative thoughts, eating something that your specific body identifies as an energetic toxin, coming into contact with an inhaled energetic toxin, touching an energetic toxin, a spider bite or mosquito bite possibly, and even a very negative person that affects your mood and energy. Cigarettes are an energy toxin for most and so is fabric softener. Each person has personal energetic toxins and they may be different from anyone in your family or others that you know.

Sometimes a person’s energy is in a constant state of reversal, in many cases this person may have a chronic health condition or even cancer. Almost all people with cancer that have been tested in this manner, test as reversed energy.

If you are consuming an item that your body identifies as an energy toxin, every day, repeatedly throughout the day, your body may not be strong enough or have enough “down time” from that toxin, which can cause illness, emotional upsets, weight gain, difficulty losing weight and a number of other maladies including chronic illness (emotional or physical).

Example: Your body may identify WHEAT as an energetic toxin (which mine did). And, you have breakfast with toast (which contains bleached or un-bleached wheat flour). Then for lunch, you have a tuna sandwich (more bread – wheat). Than for dinner you have teriyaki chicken (Oh, yes, many sauces for some reason, have to have wheat in them). Then later, you have some cookies while watching TV before bed – (baked goods – more wheat). Imagine how your body is attempting to rid itself of this energetic toxin load, and you unknowingly keep feeding your body wheat. It doesn’t even have a chance to self correct and begin healing issues in your body.

Another real example is myself, my body identifies wheat as an energetic toxin and ‘reverser’. If I eat anything that has wheat in it, just one bite, within a very short time (usually 15-20 minutes) I become extremely depressed on the verge of not knowing why I am alive, with constant crying bouts and all along with anger & frustration. Similar thing happens when I eat cashews. Now, I LOVE cashews. I had to give them up. It is just not worth it! (2018 – Update, I have cleared both of these reactions on myself using QT energy healing)

Some energetic toxins leave no “physical” symptom like when I eat wheat or cashews. I could feel it almost immediately. In many cases, you won’t notice anything. You may however, wonder why you don’t heal, why you or someone you know has to take multiple rounds of antibiotics to heal, or why you have a chronic health condition, or it takes a REALLY, REALLY long time to lose weight no matter how much you work out or change your diet, or you may wonder why you are depressed all the time and not now why.

Identifying these energetic toxins is very simple and one of the first steps toward Optimal Health including weight loss.

In addition to removing the identified energetic toxins, your Quantum Techniques practitioner can also run a full session for weight loss, clearing energy frequencies that are preventing our body from losing weight as your body may not even recognize there is a weight issue. Quantum Techniques states: What your body can see, it can heal”. Your body is meant to self heal, however, sometimes the body’s healing intelligence is turned off (many times by energetic toxin frequencies) and does not know there is an illness or dis-ease that it should be healing, or a cancer it should be correcting or something else.

Although I am certified in multiple energy healing methods, I choose to use Quantum Techniques at the core of my practice due to it’s powerful benefit and rapid changes. QT is considered the most comprehensive method of remote energy healing in the World today.
