Trauma is stored in four different ways in a personʼs system; the actual event, the emotions around that event, the body sensations where the emotions are stored and a set of negative beliefs attached to the event. So if the event was ʻnot getting enough brownies when you were a childʼ, there may be hurt in his stomach, anger in his fists and sadness in his heart around this event. On top of all that he may begin to think “there is something wrong with me, I am not good enough to have brownies and I am unlovable.” Gentle Reprocessing dissolves each emotion, releasing each body sensation and then rewrites the negative cognitions into positive cognitions. Once this is done, the ʻeventʼ no longer is found to be upsetting. It is neutralized.
