The Injustice Wound

The Wound of Injustice

According to soul wound expert Lise Bourbeau, injustice becomes a core soul wound that is activated between the age of four and six, when we are emotionally traumatized by a same-sex parent who was dry, did not show or express emotions readily, did not outwardly exhibit signs of love or affection, or was very particular about the way things should be done.

In this article we will cover the emotional trauma wound (sometimes referred to as a soul wound) of injustice and:

  • Find out what mask your ego puts on to avoid the pain associated with this wound and how it manifests through your behavior (withdrawn, dependent, masochist, controlling or harsh).

  • Learn to identify what activates your wound.

  • Learn how to begin healing.

The ego’s reaction is to put on a harsh mask manifested by:

  • Feeling the need to show how strong or healthy we are, despite being tired or ill.

  • It's difficult for us to admit we are experiencing problems.

  • Controlling ourselves to always look perfect.

  • Afraid of losing control.

  • Unaware of our own injustice towards others.

  • It's hard for us to show our feelings.

  • We have trouble creating satisfying intimate relationships.

  • Very high demands on our body, and may go as far as not acknowledging illnesses.

  • Great acceptance of pain and cold.

  • A tendency to criticize others and ourselves.

  • We value skills over feelings.

Biggest Anxiety: Being ignored/left out/cold shoulder or silent treatment.

How do wounds get activated?

Every day we go from one wound to another depending on the circumstances and people around us.

  • The wound can be activated by somebody’s attitude or behavior towards us.

  • It could also be activated by our attitude towards someone else.

  • We can also activate it ourselves by our attitude towards ourselves.

Where do emotional wounds come from?

On a soul level we come into this lifetime to evolve through the experiences that transform us and teach us the meaning of love itself. When we refuse to accept our experiences for what they are (opportunities to discover who we really are) and instead insist on assessing them endless, we experience guilt, fear, regret and we perpetuate self-defeating behaviors that doe not serve the best version of who we are. It is our soul's mission to learn to fully accept our experiences as they are. In essence, we allow ourselves to experience our emotions without getting stuck in them. We learn to stay centered in knowing we are always learning from our own experiences. Everything we experience without acceptance accumulates in our body, our energy and our emotions. Until we start addressing these stuck emotions, many of us will continue to get stuck in self-defeating behavior patterns that do not align with our vision of success and abundance.

According to author Lise Bourbeau and past-life regression guru Dr. Michael Newton, before we are born into this lifetime, we choose what karma or “spiritual luggage” we want to work on or settle in this incarnation. The vast majority of us are not consciously aware of this from birth, it is only with time that you slowly begin to realize what your life plan is and what you should regulate in it (with the help of your intuition to guide you on your path).

We all come into the world and experience emotional wound
