I came across this this morning and thought it was interesting. I’ve never experienced it myself because I don’t have many significant trauma’s in my past, but I can see how it might happen.

a sort of flow that is entered from trauma patterns too and then its the energetic of a painful past that starts moving through us taking us away from the moment…it sometimes needs to be entered in order to watch, witness and release.
So it seems to be about a state of ‘flow’ that is entered during trauma processing, which can be mindfully experienced.

I think I get the idea behind It, there's a technique in NLP (Neuro linguistic programming) called double dissociation where you watch yourself watching memories unfold on a TV screen in your immagination. It can be useful for working with phobias. I have suffered from PTSD which constantly pulls you into the trauma flow with flashbacks and mindfulness can be very useful in getting you out of it again and back to where you feel safe.
