Negative Emotions/Behaviors as Effects of Trauma – Interview with Lynn Himmelman, NDT Master Trainer


Effects of past emotional traumas are different in different recipients of past traumas and depend on many details and factors related to their lives and trauma itself. The common personal effects of traumas are new emotional states that represent guilt, regret and anger. When traumas are more severe, many victims get an unconscious desire to die. All these emotions diminish personal life force.

As a result of trauma and becoming a victim many people demonstrate such self-defeating behaviors as:

– breaking promises made to yourself or inability to stick with your own intentions and plans

– being hard on yourself

– feeling worthless even though while having achievements in life

– feeling depressed, dispirited, hopeless, etc..

One of the effective solutions to these emotional problems and self-defeating behaviors is to use a body healing technique called the NDT (New Decision Therapy).

The New Decision Therapy can expand a traumatized person view of life, other people and situations that they were being previously emotionally triggered by. Dr. Artour Rakhimov and Lynn are NDT (New Decision Therapy) practitioners that go further into depth on this topic. Dr. Artour Rakhimov is also a breathing teacher and the owner of How can one test for trauma? The NDT has a technique that tests specific points on the body to reveal trauma. A related question is if there is a person that has no prior knowledge about the NDT, what how can they make do it yourself type of test? This would be for the person to know that they have some kind of trauma. Simply a person would know that their ‘buttons are being pressed’ or that they are being emotionally triggered easily.

Someone with trauma would be triggered on a regular basis because of a certain person. There is an idea that if that person would just change the way they are behaving and talking that would make their own life much easier. We do not have control over other people’s behavior. To keep waiting, negotiating and trying to make another person change their way of behavior can be an endless story. The NDT puts you back in the driver’s seat of your life. Even if that someone else does not change their behavior, you can still feel at ease. You can recover your peace of mind and have a broader perspective to understand from a place of compassion. That this other person is truly stuck and does not know how to change. It puts you in a self-empowered state and makes you stop putting your happiness in someone else’s hands.

Later, we are going to discuss testing specific body points with the NDT on presence of guilt and regret (a weak CSX Body Alarm point) and anger (a weak Heart Body Alarm point). When the life force is undermined, the Thymus Alarm point (the upper point out of those three points) become weak.
