Because cutting and other means of self-harm tend to be taboo subjects, the people around you and possibly even you may harbor serious misconceptions about your motivations and state of mind. Don’t let these myths get in the way of getting help or helping someone you care about.
Myth: People who cut and self-injure are trying to get attention.
Fact: The painful truth is that people who self-harm generally do so in secret. They aren’t trying to manipulate others or draw attention to themselves. In fact, shame and fear can make it very difficult to come forward and ask for help.
Myth: People who self-injure are crazy and or dangerous.
Fact: It is true that many people who self-harm suffer from anxiety, depression, or a previous trauma—just like millions of others in the general population. Self-injury is how they cope. Slapping them with a crazy or dangerous label isn’t accurate or helpful.
Myth: People who self-injure want to die.
Fact: Self-injurers usually do not want to die. When they self-harm, they are not trying to kill themselves—they are trying to cope with their pain. In fact, self-injury may be a way of helping themselves go on living. However, in the long-term, people who self-injure have a much higher risk of suicide, which is why it’s so important to seek help.
Myth: If the wounds aren’t bad, it’s not that serious.
Fact: The severity of a person’s wounds has very little to do with how much he or she may be suffering. Don’t assume that because the wounds or injuries are minor, there’s nothing to worry about.
What is German New Medicine’s perspective on Cutting?
Dr. Hamer has found that those individuals who tend towards self-harm (Cutting) are experiencing a state of constellation.
A constellation involves multiple biological conflicts in opposing halves of the brain. In other words, one active conflict on each hemisphere in direct opposition. Think a constellation of stars in the night sky.
What has been observed in cutters are the following constellations; a post mortal constellation reflecting thoughts of death and dying, a flying constellation reflecting out of body experiences and disconnecting, a bio aggressive constellation reflecting anger, rage and finally cerebellum constellation, reflecting in the inability to feel, void of emotion.
The cerebellum constellation is the most important relative to cutters. Organically, these are the breast gland brain relays in females and the mammary line relays in males. When both conflicts are active simultaneously the individual will feel emotionally dead or void inside and may come across as anti-social. This is a different constellation from depression.
The cerebellum constellation is also biologically meaningful. Remember the associated biological conflict is one of worry, a quarrel, a rift. When both hemispheres go into conflict activity simultaneously – it can overwhelm the individual. This is simply nature’s way of protecting its creation from too much pain. The beauty of having a session with a client experiencing a cerebellum constellation is that we only need resolve or downgrade on side of the constellation for results.
The cerebellum constellation is the most important as it is responsible for the emotional shutdown that makes individuals want to cut. You see, cutting is a way to feel something, anything again.
