In this phase of alarm response
begin. The organism
freezes up, cannot move, gets caught in an upward extension
arises and it says,
"I won't be a threat, I won't move, I won't give up or lose my ground"
Rather than arousal, there is suspended animation. This is the begining of increased fragmentation
PHYSICAL RESPONSES IN THIS PHASE:
The chest locks in inspiration while the diaphragm locks in expiration, the intestines become spastic and immoblile as the organism pulls totally out of the pelvis and off the ground, the cranial cavity and the spinal cord tube constrict, cranial pulsation becomes restricted and the head pulls back greatly, the throat and nasal tubes constrict, and the hands freeze in a gesture of submission (locking and bracing without any action -- a signal of no contact.)
