“Memories influence every action and pattern of action you undertake.”
Re-occurring mental distress can be debilitating, weakening the natural function of the human body. Experiences like these are more common than what you may think. The brain is hard-wired in such a way to learn quickly from bad experiences, but not so many good ones.
Bad memories are more vivid than the good experiences, possibly due to the interaction between the connected emotion to the memory. Especially so if the memory was perceived as negative. It’s why traumatic memories so often stick to the brain, while positive ones appear to just slip away.
For those who suffer from anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorders, and phobias, just one unwelcoming memory can manifest a lifetime of perceptions, emotions, and behaviors despite external support such as therapy. While the presence of stress disorders within the brain does not “box” the person into as having a psychological problem either.
Clues to some mental disturbances may include:
Our memories create the sequence of habits, associations, and systems that develop the inner and outer environment today. Furthermore, the past does not define you. It isn’t reality. With the proper understanding of memory, you can manipulate it to let go of traumatic experiences.
When we recall a memory, it’s possible to modify it before the link onto the brain is fully affixed. For a long time, western science and medicine have thought that the older the memory, the more fixed it is, but this is definitely not true.
Each time you revisit a memory, it becomes flexible over again. Therefore, the memory can change a little each time you recall it, causing it to reset stronger and vibrantly with each recollection. According to neuroimaging studies, the process of encoding and recalling negative memories involves the parts of the brain that processes emotions. We will be discussing the brains order of operation, basic functions, and levels to mental enlightenment further on in our “How to Overcome Traumatic Memories” series.
As Einstein has reminded western science much later on that, “Time and space are modes by what we think, and not conditions in which we live.”

Have you struggled to overcome past memories?
