According to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) …

“You are the living tape of the feelings of your mother and father.”

Body Dowsing (Mind Reading For the Millions) can uncover the dominant and recessive parental traumas.

Dominant and recessive engrams exist in psychology — corresponding to dominant and recessive alleles in biology.

Michel Odent, M.D. (Birth and Breastfeeding: Rediscovering the Needs of Women in Pregnancy and Childbirth, 1993, 2003) wrote …

“From an overview of the data bank [Primal Health Research Data Bank on the Web] it appears immediately that, in all fields of medicine, there have been studies revealing correlations between an adult disease and what happened when the mother was pregnant. It is even possible to conclude that our health is to a great extent shaped in the womb. There are in particular many studies confirming the emotional states of pregnant women may have life-long effects on their children. This leads to the conclusion that the first duty of health professionals should be to deal tactfully with the emotional state of pregnant women. This is not easy in the framework of industrialized childbirth, which implies a certain style of prenatal care, constantly focusing on potential problems. Let us say that antenatal visits often have a ‘nocebo effect.’ There is a nocebo effect whenever health officials do more harm than good by interfering with the imagination and the belief system of the person for whom they are providing care.”

Norman O. Brown (Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History, Second Edition, 1959, 1985) wrote …

“Anxiety is a response to experiences of separateness, individuality, and death. The human child, which at the mother’s breast experiences a new and intense mode of union, of living, and of loving, must also experience a new and intenser mode of separation, individuality, and death; in the dry language of Freud, a trauma is constituted when the ego comes into contact with an excessive demand of its own libido. In the human family the expansion of Eros onto a new and higher level entails the expansion of death onto a new and higher level. It is because the child loves the mother so much that it feels separation from the mother as death. As a result, birth and death, which at the biological level are experienced once only, are at the human psychic level experienced constantly; the child can say with St. Paul, ‘I die daily.’

“One effect of the incapacity to accept separation, individuality, and death is to erotize death — to activate a morbid wish to die, a wish to regress to the prenatal state before life (and separation) began, to the mother’s womb. Freud analyzed the castration complex as the fear of losing the instrument for reuniting with (a substitute for) the mother’s womb. The implication is not only that the morbid or regressive death wish underlies the Oedipal project in infancy, but also that it underlies the adult genital arrangements which fall heir to the destruction of the Oedipus complex — the human family and the genital organization of the human body. Hence, as Freud so often said, in choosing a wife we still seek our mother, and in the genital act ‘the vagina comes into the inheritance of the mother’s womb.'”

Wilson Bryan Key (The Age of Manipulation: The Con in Confidence, The Sin in Sincere, 1989) wrote …

“Ad agency researchers well know that substantial quantities of alcohol are consumed as a means of sex or intimacy avoidance. Alcohol is one of the greatest enemies of sex man has invented — a few ounces in the blood destroys sexual ability, even if it engenders virile fantasies. Castration themes are frequently found in alcohol, tobacco, and drug ads.”

According to the same source …

“Alcohol ads are not directed at mere drinkers. They are aimed at heavy and very heavy drinkers. Ads are tested against these special consumers before large media investments are justified. These ‘heavies’ consume inordinate quantities of alcohol and also serve as leaders among drinkers for installing brand preferences. Want to know a good Scotch? Ask someone who drinks a lot of it.”

According to the same source …

“Death or self-destructive imagery is a frequent aspect of subliminal content. Advertisers of alcohol, tobacco, and drugs know that subliminal death imagery sells the brand and product.”

    Women have their own version of the Oedipus Complex. Carl Jung named it the Electra Complex.
