Healing Life Trauma by Un-coloring Thoughts … by Alice B. Clagett

Revised; originally published on 13 December 2014 

Dear Ones,

One good way to heal Soul wounding, mental-emotional ‘tangles’, childhood traumas, PTSD, and injuries to the ‘inner child’ is to use Patanjali’s technique of ‘un-coloring’ thoughts.

One of my favorite ways to ‘un-color’ a traumatic event is to tell a story about it that allows it to evolve into less and less traumatic timelines, for example, like this:

First timeline (let’s say this is what I saw): Oh my gosh, that truck just hit that car. Oh my gosh, the folks in the car must have been killed.

Second timeline (beginning of timeline shifts to gradually uncolor the event): Oh my gosh, that truck just bumped that car. Thank goodness everyone is ok.

Third timeline: Oh my gosh, I was reading in the newspaper this morning about an accident with a truck and a car. How wonderful! There were no injuries.

Fourth timeline: I recall a fiction book I read in fourth grade, about an accident with a truck and a car. What was the name of that book, anyway?

Fifth timeline: I recall hearing about a book like that from that guy in the second-hand bookstore. The one that used to be in the corner in the shopping mall they turned into a beautiful park. Wow, what lovely trees and benches!

Swamij describes and illustrates Patanjali’s technique of uncoloring thoughts in very helpful detail:
