The Shadow Side of the Mother’s Love: The Hidden Truths of How We Learn Love in the Womb is about how the subconscious tricks us into thinking the womb is symbiotic, when truly it is parasitic. During pregnancy our psyche was led to believe the womb was a space where our needs were met at all costs, and after birth, we attempt to return to the womb, subconsciously, anytime conflict arises. Everytime we experience conflict, rejection, pain or trauma it triggers a negative emotional response, learned in the womb and linked to our dysfunctional version of love, a shadow love language. Trauma began at conception and was solidified in the womb by a negative emotional state our mother felt. We attached the seemingly intact womb experience and the needs of safety, security, validation and love to this negative emotional state experienced in vitro. The subconscious has packaged this unhealthy emotion during pregnancy as unconditional love and the belief that feeling it links us to the universal consciousness. Each individual has inherited a trauma code, linked to an emotional response and a story linked to rejection, neglect, abandonment and trauma that links back to this trauma code during pregnancy. The trauma code and emotion is the link to generational and ancestral trauma as an attempt to remain loyal to the tribe and meet our love and belonging needs, albeit dysfunctional.
