Ongoing concerns of COVID pandemic, political divide, and social injustice, trigger fear and trauma. Planetary, societal, ancestral, and spiritual perspectives assist in understanding EMDR as a transpersonal therapy, and the role of integration of egoic and expanded states of consciousness in personal and social transformation. Transpersonal tools using internal focusing and mindfulness throughout the EMDR protocol, potentially awakens consciousness leading to swift trauma resolution, adaptive functioning, emotional regulation, RDI, and connection to a holistic and integrative perspective of the undivided self of personality and higher-self. New meaning and context of trauma is realized as inner wisdom emerges healing the roots of ancestral, personal, and societal wounds.
