Women, who have been traumatized, whether through rape, incest, or assault, unbeknownst to many, preserve a message within the very molecules of their bodies; I call this trauma an uninvited guest! The human body operates like a machine, each system functioning in a synchronized way to keep it in good working order. As can be seen, it runs unconsciously—by memory. Can you imagine telling your lungs to take in air and your heart to beat? Now that sounds a bit crazy. When there is disease, the body accommodates trying to restore itself back to homeostasis or equilibrium. The body, once again, functions to restore, by memory, an unconscious realm that keeps us alive. We don’t have to work at it; it just does its job. Unconsciously, there is a good working relationship.
